Summary: The sides are made of rubber for comfort. While this is great, it you're a twitch gamer, and let's say have developed a nasty habit of rubbing you thumb along the side of the mouse 1000 times a second, you're going to eat through that rubber coating. I wish it was just made of hard plastic or metal.
Pros: The highest endurance mouse I've ever used. My brother plays a lot of twitch (as in moving and clicking the mouse A LOT) gaming, and eventually killed my Logitech G9x mouse's right click. Now, that mouse is still awesome, and I bought another one because I refuse to play an FPS without it, but if you're going to play StarCraft II, League of Legends, or heck, even Diablo III, you're going to need a mouse that can take a beating, and this mouse sure as hell can. It has ...
Pros: - SteelSeries!!!! - Diablo III Themed! - Amazing Utility GUI - Lifetime clicks feature is really cool - Timing clicks in a session is a neat perk but not really a big deal for me - Adjustable DPI (sensitivity) - Cool LED effect(s)
Cons: - It doesnt morph to match the theme of every game I play - I have purchased other high end mouses who have a bit better build mouse cable (this one is pure fabric and can start to fall apart if its grinding against the edge of something for awhile >=[ )
Pros: Fast responsive good looking mouse with a nice diablo logo that you can leave on flashing or make your own pattern or disable if you don't want it at all... Mouse drivers come with a lot of perks... Macros and even click stats :)
Cons: a bit small for my hands... But I do have a rather big palms so... I got used t to it.... Perhaps felt that way because I had a larger mouse before
Summary: The unplugging was a nuisance at first but I've gotten used to it now
Pros: -Comfortable for being an ambidextrous mouse -6 settings for red LED glow (slow, medium, fast, always on, trigger, off) -Up to 5700 CPI, I use it at 5000 for games like Battlefield 3 and Starcraft 2 -Smooth on the mousepad -Pretty light considering the mouse is a pretty big
Cons: -if the cable is stiff at all you may have resistance moving the mouse forward, it just takes some adjusting to get rid of it -I don't know if this is my motherboard's fault or the mouse, but every time I boot up my PC if the mouse is plugged in from last session then it must be reinserted after Windows log in or else it never turns on (haven't found a solution to this, running the software on startup didn't solve it)
Summary: I've been looking for a semi-affordable mouse that wasn't designed for one hand, at least 5000 dpi, is lightweight and therefore glides easily across the mouse pad (tested with plastic top and cloth top mouse pads--a little bit better on cloth), and this mouse satisfies those desires. It would be nice if i could use the extra buttons for raising and lower the CPI. I'm not too fond of the current CPI button, which only allows for toggling between the only two CPI values.
Pros: Lightweight. Slippery tracks. Lights can be turned off (can also be set to trigger when mouse button is clicked!). 5700 CPI. Mouse buttons and mouse wheel provide just the right pressure for my needs. Not designed for one hand! (A major plus!)
Cons: Linux drivers not available. However, all buttons are nevertheless functional in Linux. That is, two thumb buttons on the left are for going back or forward; the two thumb buttons on the right imitate the page up and page down keyboard keys. I'm right-handed, so i sometimes end up scrolling the page down accidentally. It would be nice to be able to disable those two buttons in Linux.
Summary: It is sort of expensive, but the red lights on the mouse make it stand out when it's dark.
Pros: Comfortable for an ambidextrous mouse Mouse wheel feels nice and smooth Left and right clicks don't take a lot of force The 7 macro keys (including left and right click, and mouse wheel) can be programmed to everything I needed, such as opening a program or pasting text
Cons: The macro menus can be confusing at first, but you get used to how it's set up within an hour of tinkering with it And I wish there was more red light area on the mouse, it is only the sides of the mouse wheel and the Diablo logo on the back that glow.
