Best fit so far

William R., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I took off one egg for the bad finish on mouse buttons. Will update again if the situation gets worse.
  • Pros: Comfortable: bigger than some other mice and fits my hand nicely Customizable, can set two different dpi settings and have the settings be different on a per app basis, no need to constantly change it yourself. Can also change the color of the led logo on the mouse but cannot change the color of ...
  • Cons: It appears that the finish on the left and right mouse button is wearing off where my fingers go. Its either that or just the oil/dirt from my fingers is staying on there, haven't tried to clean it off yet as it doesn't really bother me. But people who care about the appearance might be disappoin...

  • Summary: Overall same quality as the Razer Deathadder. Also happy with the price and shipping by newegg.
  • Pros: Grip and shape of the mouse is almost perfect for me, and the option to turn off the lights is a plus too.
  • Cons: Sensitivity(CPI) toggle is limited to 2, and the software doesn't display which setting is currently toggled.

  • Summary: +Amazing sensor and high max malfunction speed (crucial if you use low sensitivity and swipe fast) +Software is easy to use and you can turn off the LEDs. Way better than setpoint and synapse. +Rubber sides are really nice -I'm not a fan of the shape.

Almost a perfect mouse...

Lucas Jochim, Amazon
22 April 2015
  • Summary: Great mouse, excellent responsiveness and the drivers data is stored on board. the button clicks on this mouse feel great and they have almost no wear after about a year of use. the matte finish on the plastic body allows for a great grip even if you have sweaty hands, and cleans up quite easily.

Great Gaming Mouse

Anonymous, Newegg
22 March 2015
  • Pros: Great for long fingers/large hands, good finish, has a program with which you can change settings similar to Razer Synapse, and most importantly has a jut on the right side where the ring and pinky fingers sit which is very good for large hands and palm style grip, you don't see this on most dece...
  • Cons: I will update my review upon using the mouse, so far with the pinky support it has no cons.

Feels great, solid mouse

Michael S., Newegg
18 February 2015
  • Summary: this mouse felt better in my hands than the Deathadder Chroma testing in paint, 6500 CPI produced tons of jagged/sawtoothy lines might want to use lower CPI in game (i use 400)
  • Pros: Was looking for a better mouse to replace my Naga for FPS games (big hands + palm/slight claw grip dont mix on the Naga) and since I'm getting into Counter Strike i wanted one with a "flawless" sensor this mouse feels great, the rubbery coating is super grippy even if your hands are a bit sweaty,...
  • Cons: my button 4 (larger side button) is indented a little, kind of want to exchange it but it's not a big deal and it doesnt affect the comfort/performance of the mouse there is no indication that you've switched to your second set CPI other than feeling the change in game

Great mouse - not without flaws.

Tyler B., Newegg
21 January 2015
  • Summary: A solid mouse for any player looking for something ergonomic but without sacrificing accuracy and precision. Good for the casual and the hardcore gamer alike, but not without its flaws - but this can be said for most mice.
  • Pros: -Uses one of the best optical sensors out there. 1:1 tracking and no acceleration. -Fully customizable color scheme as well as 3D printable nameplate -Software is easy to use. -Quick DPI switch in a place you cant accidentally press. 2 Side buttons raised above just enough so theyre out of the wa...
  • Cons: -Multiple software flaws. Multiple respectable forums report findings of smoothing taking place within the software. Unneeded and unwanted. The software often lags and freezes up. -"no sweat surface" is not effective. not to mention that once you do sweat on it, the markings stay on the mouse unt...

Solid performer.

Chung Sil Yoon, Amazon
2 December 2014
  • Summary: Pros: Flawless sensor. Large size relative to other gaming mice with similar specs, good if you like to palm it. Software is pretty easy to use and I haven't noticed any bugs. Glowing lights on the mouse are pretty. Rubberized side grips feel nice.
