4 out of 5 eggsGood Mouse, Tricky on Ubuntu

Pros: This mouse is comfortable and the buttons work well. Very solid construction.

Cons: The side buttons are interpreted as keyboard buttons in Ubuntu. I realize this mouse was aimed and Windows users but it would have been nice if Ubuntu detected the side buttons as mouse buttons and not 1-0 and + - on the keyboard. Custom binding for the side buttons also bind the corresponding keyboard buttons, making the top row numbers and plus and minus sign unusable. Ultimately this is a great mouse and I'm sure with a little effort I can do some custom remapping in Linux. I realize this is not really a con or an issue for most purchasers of this mouse but it is good to know this before buying if you play on going crazy in Compiz or other linux software.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Mouse I've ever owned

Pros: I've owned a Razer Naga and a Razer Hex (both amazing mice) as and the Venus by Utech is so far my favorite. The DPI adjustment on the fly is a great feature when switching between say, an RPG and an FPS. The angled side buttons are a serious tactile improvement over Razer's flat panel.

Cons: The buttons aren't quite as snappy as the Naga, but it's hardly noticeable. Also I wish the chord was a bit longer.

Other Thoughts: Just an amazing mouse. Especially for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsA good decision

Pros: The mouse has 12 buttons on the side and pretty good software if i say so myself. Its not the easiest to figure out but, its not that hard either. lost of different colors, and options, easy to change and manage. My first mouse went out, if you contact the manufacturer they have good response times and ideas, the mouse i had just ended up being broken so they ended up mailing me a new one no hassle. pretty great mouse, 1.5 year warranty, customer service was pretty top notch for me at least. I'm going to count this as a good buy.

Cons: My first mouse went bad after the first few months i had it, but it was under warranty. I was disappointed when the first one went out but i talked with them and tried to trouble shoot it, apparently its pretty rare for one of them to go out like that. I tried to find people who had the same problem with the mouse and couldn't find anything so at least that means its not common enough to have a bunch of help articles.

Other Thoughts: This mouse is weird about usb 2.0 and 3.0. I suggest if you have any trouble with the mouse simply try putting it in a 3.0 if it was in a 2.0 or vise versa. I would buy from them again just for the customer support factor but, the mouse is also pretty high quality. you can even take weights out of it if its too heavy.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Mouse!

Pros: - Very precise
- Love all the color options!
- Well-placed buttons. Easy to access, but you won't hit them by mistake.

Cons: - Sometimes the LMB makes a really weird squeek when you press it. Not going to bother me though!

2 out of 5 eggsShould have bought a better mouse.

Pros: Cheap, lots of buttons you can program in games and such, somewhat customizable lights.

Cons: Cheap laser(stutters, lags, pointer moves on its own when the mouse is stationary. Lights wont all match if you pick custom colors other than the few presets they give you. First and formost its a mouse though, and if it doesn't work flawlessly as that at least then it sucks, thus the 2 eggs.

Other Thoughts: Get the laser of your mouse right and fix the led color customization and it would be awesome for the price.

4 out of 5 eggsGood so far, but some driver issues

Pros: I've had it for four months so far. It's comfortable, very inexpensive, has plenty of buttons, decently programmable and they're all relatively easy access. The top mouse buttons could stand to be as wide as my Logitech M570 so I can have my index finger more comfortably on the right button, but they're still easily wider than most mice.

Cons: I have to re-install the driver every few days to weeks. I originally thought the problem may be the Microsoft keyboard driver or the Logitech trackball (for work) driver. I uninstalled both but it still happens. The symptom is that the cursor will either hold steady to one side of the screen, only move a small amount, or only move on one axis. After I re-install the UtechSmart drivers and reboot everything is fine.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm quite happy with it. The driver issue is an annoyance, and could be specific to my machine for all I know. Fortunately it only stops working on a fresh start and rebooting is fairly quick on my machine.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I've been pleasingly surprised with how great this mouse is. The build quality is great, and so is the performance. I pretty much use it for WoW, all the keybinds work flawlessly. The software is also fairly easy to use. I've owned it now for about 5 months, my razer naga lasted me 2 months. I'm not very great with these reviews, so I'll just stick with what I've put.

Cons: The buttons on the side are a little hard to press, takes a bit of getting use to.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than others at same price

Pros: Before you close this tab and search instead for a used razer naga, let me tell you that this mouse is no joke. The excessively long title, seemingly unheard of asia-based company, and fire effects on the box may make it seem cheap and unprofessional, but this optical multi-purpose beauty has skyrocketed to the top rank on my list of favourite peripherals. Let's start with the fact that this can flawlessly employ it's powerful 16,000+ dpi, which I personally find a bit excessive, but you may have a use for it (4k screen travelling?). Even more impressive than its unrivalled dpi is the ability to travel as low as 50 dpi, with 5 customizable dpi presets that can be quickly interchanged with the push of a button, which there seem to be plenty of on this mouse.
Its 12 programmable hotkeys, if you could call them that, are extremely useful for any task, whether it be adjusting every possible parameter on your itunes, or binding paragraphs of insults to your favourite video game; these buttons can get the job done with room to spare. I personally use them for quick tool switching in digital media editing, and the last 3 for play/pausing, skipping, or returning to songs on itunes (the mouse comes with these options, no keyboard keys involved).
Being a high-dpi capable optical mouse, this mouse can track smoothly on nearly any surface, even my glassy desktop! (ok, not smoothly there, but it works in a pinch). One of the possible downsides of using an optical sensor is that it eliminates the hardware-caused acceleration that is prevalent in all laser mice. The adjusting time for the sudden perceived slowdown is only a few days to a week, but after that you'll be so glad you made the switch, the accuracy (and difference) is astonishing.
Now, the weights. I personally never used them, took them out when I got the mouse, because I feel the mouse is heavy enough on its own, and I have a steady hand to keep it from jerking around as well (however this seems to be more of a problem at the 4000+ dpi range). For those of you who prefer a weighted mouse, don't worry, this mouse has plenty of additional weights to add.
Now on to the aesthetics, This mouse has one of the most advanced lighting systems I've seen on a mouse, 16 million colors (as it is commonly called) are available in a color wheel similar to adobe's common square color selector. There are customizable options for light breathe speed (bright-dim fade shifting) which is also removable, and light brightness. There are 5 premade light profiles, and you can customize them in every way possible, but the profiles are important because they're the only 5 color options available for the "headlights" and scroll wheel. So unless you like half&half, I suggest sticking to a color you like, and adding a similar color for the logo & hotkeys.
One final addition to this review that I'd like to make is the also mappable "fire button", which is a slightly less sensitive key next to the mouse button. I love it.

Cons: The usb entry stick is a little long, but looks like alienware, so it's cool.

Other Thoughts: Because I ran out of characters on the pros, I find the fire button extremely useful for navigating file menus (set clicks/time to 2 with 1ms spacing) and the like.
