Summary: This is the mouse I used in transitioning from xbox 360 to pc. Considering ive been using the mouse and keyboard while gaming for about 2 months - and now I do great in games like battlefield three. Still works great.
Pros: Very responsive ; cant game without it. on the fly dpi switching and weight adjustment
Cons: On the big side; but that's ok with me. Wish it was a bit heavier and maybe a hiar smaller
Summary: This mouse is fantasic outside of the driver issues (pickup freeze) and the worthless friction ring around the sensor. Or the terrible dust collector of doom as I call it. Easily removed thankfully.
Pros: Comes in a nice box w/ a free nice bag to carry it in, and some stickers. The mouse itself is very nice. It has a good rubber feel, responsive scrolling wheel, a weighting system, and a patch of hard dots (Not sure what to call them) to grip you thumb to. It's adjustable through 200/400/2000/4000...
Cons: None of these cons are very drastic, but could be deal breaking for some users. 1. This is a VERY light mouse, even with all of the weights in. I don't mind, but some people may. 2. The LED's are a bit more dark orange than red. Since my build is completely black and red, it doesn't match as good...
Summary: Use mostly on Linux, and so have never touched the custom software. After having it for quite a while I'm pretty sure it's a little bit too big for my hands (so great mouse if you have large hands, probably). The default accel curve strikes me as a little odd.
Pros: Smooth and accurate. Looks nice. First one went bad, ThermalTake was great about replacing it under warranty. It was pretty much zero hassle. Quite impressed.
Cons: My first one developed the dreaded tendency to flicker on and off frequently, which made it horrible in games. No trouble with replacement under warranty, though.
