john a., Newegg

  • Summary: Look for something. my mouse wheel drives me crazy.
  • Pros: optical sensor on the mouse is really nice, felt natural.
  • Cons: The mouse wheel is only attached on one side(and is supported by the middle mouse button on the right side with no guides to stop it from moving), after 30 days it develops a clunking noise that you can hear and feel.

KyanWan, Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: Certified refurbished? Who refurbished this thing? Nobody. It's used - not refurbished. My mouse arrived covered in dirt, with food stuck inside it, it smelled funny ... and it was "packaged" with a $0.005 Velcro tie-strip from Wal-mart. ... Seriously, this thing is NOT refurbished.

refurbished?

Chris, Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: This review isn't so much for the mouse in general but specifically the refurbished version. The "Certified Refurbished" mouse I received still had oils and other gunk on the outside and the left mouse button would not even click as if it was completely broken or smashed which makes it pretty...

Emil Pantastico, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: Bought the item in August 2014, it's already showing signs of wear and tear even though I maintain a high level of care for the mouse. The rubber sides are starting to "melt" for lack of a better word.

Terrible Customer Service

C.H, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: I was very happy about my purchase... After 24h of use, I started noticing when standing still the mouse will start moving to a random direction. Also, while playing games I started experiencing some "unwanted" movements. Then, I had to deal with Steelseries customer services department...

User Review

Mitchell E., Newegg
3 May 2014
  • Pros: Fits very nicely in the hand.
  • Cons: The first one of these that I got the optical sensor failed after a few days of use. So I was then forced to RMA it back to newegg which was fine. I then received the second one about a week and a half later and have been using it since (just over 3 months). It has been great up until 2 weeks ago...
