Summary: I bought this in Dec. '13. Its been almost a year of use and haven't had any particular issues with it. Usage: frequent gaming and regular use Pros: - Ability to change DPI on the fly - Cloth cord (not stiff like plastic ones) - Comfortable to use - Looks and the glossy feel Cons: - The steelseries engine (desktop software) fails to recognize the mouse every time the computer starts up. One has to unplug the usb connection and re-plug it for it to get detected.

Summary: worked great, saw a lot of play during MoP and was pretty fantastic as far as mouses go, but the cord is way to long, and I found it anyoning at times. again not to happy with how long it lasted, probably about 6 months if that.
If you're going to buy this mouse, get the silver one

Summary: I went through 4 of these mice (yeah, four) because I liked the shape so much. 1st: Silver one with unbalanced feet. 2nd: Black one with a terrible left click. Left click felt like it was clicking down two notches per one click if you clicked on the button too far to the middle of the mouse. 3rd: Black one, same exact clicking problem as second one! 4th: Silver one again, no problems so far. Keeping this one unless it starts developing problems as well.
Summary: The mouse is good physically, but the software is not great. I had issues with it not seeing buttons on Windows and similar. On my Mac, I used a 3rd party app called 'USB Overdrive' to handle most issues.
