Summary: This mouse is very close to being a great mouse, but questionable design decisions ruin it. Pros: *Excellent tracking *Pretty lights *Great customization options (DPI, polling rate, etc) Cons: *It's a big mouse, which is what I like, but the front end is too narrow to be comfortable. It's basically the same shape as the Intellimouse, but the front end is much more narrow. It makes it difficult for me to grip the mouse comfortably.
Summary: This is a great mouse performance wise. It made my shooting accuracy much better (coming from a microsoft wireless mouse) and looks cool too. The lights and all the mouse functions can be customized in the steelseries software. One thing you will have to consider is that this mouse is huge. My hands are slightly smaller than average for a male. When I first put my hands on the mouse, it felt way too big.
Summary: Awesome mouse in general, quite big though. Occasionally though, the mouse fails to switch profiles when I change programs which makes me have to open the program and do it manually. The Steelseries software is said to be lightweight, which it is, but for some reason it takes a good 20 seconds to open, and I'm running an i7-4770k.
Summary: just a quick background on my history with gaming mice, here are the mice I owned so far. Corsair m90, mionix avior 8200dpi, Madcatz Rat 7 and logitech g700. I play all kind of games from FPS to strategy, this is supposidly my latest mouse and the one I am currently using, I was out for an optical mouse, the choices I had locally were the rival and logitech g400, but I choose the rival fearing that the g400 switches won`t be that great.
Summary: Mionix 7000 has same sensor more comfort for medium hand people and claw grip people can use them, and no sweat pads on the sides and braided cable and mouse surface analyzer to check the wear on your mouse pad, and it has all the features of a Sensei without a lcd screen. 2 stars off because fail side grips and no braided cable.
Pros: Palm grip, anti-sweat coating, 3310 sensor, 30mil clicks, better positioned thumb buttons... Cost less than competitors.
Cons: Rubber grips make my thumb sweat if gaming a few hours, not sure how easy they'll be to clean, thinking of selling mouse because of this.
