Scroll wheel busted after 2 months

kane v., Newegg
21 November 2014
  • Summary: Review would be worlds better if support seemed even slightly competent.
  • Pros: Feels great, goo dpi, nice LEDs.
  • Cons: The scroll wheel busted out of nowhere 3 days ago. I was scrolling through a web page when it stopped catching. come to find out the gears inside are stripped. Made a ticket with steelseries support (since newegg doesn't handle them after 30 days) and haven't heard a thing back. Their support site looks like some throw back to highschool programing. I bought a 3 year full warranty for this thing. If this kind of dismal support keeps up, i'm just gonna return the thing...

  • 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. Sounds and feels like the mouse wheels gonna break whenever I use it. Upon further investigation allot of people have similar experience.

  • Pros: Fits very nicely in the hand.

It has been great up until 2 weeks ago, and what do you know the optical sensor has started to fail AGAIN. Also the left click has stared to recess compared to the right click which is also annoying. All in all, v...

HajDeff, Prisjakt

  • Summary: Kan inte ge annat än lägsta betyg när musen "brickas" efter att ha försökt uppdatera firmware. Kvalitet, liksom? Ska antagligen få en ny och testa, men första intrycket kunde inte bli sämre. Dessutom ser jag det som ett minus att den bara är optisk och inte har laseroptik, samt att kabeln är i sedvanlig mjuk plast och inte skyddande med vävt tyg, etc runt, som skyddar mot skador. Upplever jag trots allt nästa ex som OK kan jag höja betyget. Musen blev fixad på verkstad.
