This review is from: Perixx MX-3200, 2-in-1 Wired and Wireless Gaming Laser Mouse - Avago 5000dpi ADNS 9500 Laser Sensor - Charging Dock with Li-ion Battery - Dual Antenna with Optimal Wireless Connection

Pros: cool look and it fits my hand well

Cons: when you get your hands on it it feels alot cheaper that you would expect for the price worked on for a few months then it turned to pure crud faster than any other mouse i have ever owned

Other Thoughts: almost any other choice in a mouse would be a better choice

2 out of 5 eggsA short lived dream...

This review is from: Perixx MX-3200, 2-in-1 Wired and Wireless Gaming Laser Mouse - Avago 5000dpi ADNS 9500 Laser Sensor - Charging Dock with Li-ion Battery - Dual Antenna with Optimal Wireless Connection

Pros: Rechargable, really nice charging dock, great signal, excellent response time, wired and wireless options, unique aesthetic design.

Cons: None at first...but others came later, which I will explain.

Other Thoughts: This mouse was everything I had ever wanted in a gaming mouse....for about 4 months. When I first got it, it was excellent. Great response, fit my hand perfectly, I could use it on almost any surface. It never lost signal or cut out, and it was the greatest mouse I have ever had.

Around 4 months in, though, the response of the buttons started acting odd. First it was not always registering clicks, and then after a bit the left mouse button started registering two clicks everytime I pressed the button. I attempted to open the mouse up and try to repair the switch, but I don't think this mouse can actually be opened without breaking it, or without a VERY complex screwdriver, as there seems to be one spot that might be screws but it is like 4 in a row and very strange.

I managed to get it working about 90 percent of the time by pressing down really hard on the left mouse button while it was off, which seemed to relink the switch pretty effectively. I figured I could just deal with it the few times the problem persisted, since it was otherwise a great mouse.

However, there was another problem that had been slowly getting worse. The scroll wheel was not working the way it should any more. Have the time when you try to scroll down, the mouse with scroll back up either right after or before the scroll, making it virtually impossible to use the scroll wheel for anything. After dealing with this for about a month or so, it steadily got worse. Now it is scrolling the equivalent of up twice for every down motion. It is really annoying, and makes this mouse basically too broken to use successfully.

All in all, this mouse was PERFECT right up until it wasn't. I am going to have to replace it now, and I hesitate to use the same brand because I don't want the same thing to happen again. Maybe I just got a dud, but I can only speak for the experience I had.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdated review

This review is from: Perixx MX-3200, 2-in-1 Wired and Wireless Gaming Laser Mouse - Avago 5000dpi ADNS 9500 Laser Sensor - Charging Dock with Li-ion Battery - Dual Antenna with Optimal Wireless Connection

Pros: I liked the shape of the mouse.
When it was working correctly it was great.

Cons: This mouse stopped working correctly after 8 months of use. The wireless aspect of this mouse stopped working within 2 months. For the last month the mouse wouldn't click correctly, jump around, basically malfunctioned. I updated drivers, etc, nothing worked. Plugged in two different mouses wireless and wired, both worked correctly.

Tried this mouse on another computer, same issues.

Other Thoughts: In the end, I think that the mouse itself, not the driver/software was the problem. I have moved on to another mouse. This was disappointing that the mouse lasted approximately 8 months of moderate use.

1 out of 5 eggs$5 mouse will outlast this trash. 3 months only.

This review is from: Perixx MX-3200, 2-in-1 Wired and Wireless Gaming Laser Mouse - Avago 5000dpi ADNS 9500 Laser Sensor - Charging Dock with Li-ion Battery - Dual Antenna with Optimal Wireless Connection

Pros: Good on paper

Cons: Absolute piece of trash.

Randomly decides just TOUCHING (waking) the mouse means you want to turn your volume up. Not that big of a deal since I almost always have my volume all the way up.

Battery life is great the first few weeks or month, but after that, it has to be charged daily and the gimmick of using both leads to charge at twice the speed doesn't even factor in if you want it to be 100% cordless when you use it, so you are out of luck when you forget to charge it over night.

The "light" button on top (which I though was to change colors or something) is not very intuitive. Only after pressing it and NOT TOUCHING the mouse will you realize that all it does is stop the light from coming on the NEXT time you touch it (wake it). Suppose it saves some on battery life.

The left click button quickly started malfunctioning. A day or two after occassionally double-clicking when I single-clicked now today is about 90% of the time double-clicking when I single-clicked (making it frustrating and almost impossible to open menus and accidentally running things or clicking things behind menus that just closed) and even "letting go" of things you are trying to drag, making dragging and selecting do absolutely nothing but waste your time. I think even the right-click button is starting to go out too. I don't even see why since it still makes a solid click sound. I even tested it on another computer to make sure it wasn't some weird issue with my computer instead of the mouse. Nope, it's this trash mouse.

Even though I don't use them, the side bottom button (not the volume one) was already broken either out of box or a few days after using it. It still worked, but it was hard to push and making a scraping noise (like it was off center as I could lean it to the side and press it straight down like it should have been angled).

3 months later and the dang thing is useless. I tried working through all the other problems with it, but the left-clicker going out is the last straw. I'll never buy this brand again and I won't bother with the warranty because I don't even want a replacement that will just get me another piece of %($@ just like it. Not worth the shipping.

Other Thoughts: Buy from a trusted brand. Pay the extra money. It will be worth it.

Also, don't go by paper stats/specs. Read reviews and look at pictures to be sure the mouse is right for you. You use a mouse a LOT, so it's best to get something you will really like and will last. Otherwise, buy a $5 one and replace it when it breaks. I bet a $5 one would have outlasted this garbage.

2 out of 5 eggsLasted about 5 months...

This review is from: Perixx MX-3200, 2-in-1 Wired and Wireless Gaming Laser Mouse - Avago 5000dpi ADNS 9500 Laser Sensor - Charging Dock with Li-ion Battery - Dual Antenna with Optimal Wireless Connection

Pros: The mouse fresh out of the box was great. Literally zero problems. The programing was easy, the fit was nice, very reactive and loved the DPI buttons on the top of the mouse. Held charges for days in gaming mode and in power saver mode it felt like it would last a life time. The lights on the mouse were not too bright and i like it for the most part.

Cons: (I always use my mouse Wireless) After a month or two I noticed the mouse would act up coming out of sleep mode. The pointer would randomly skip to the corners of my monitor. Soon after that it would skip mid mid game. Still not a killer problem but it was becoming one... Just today I tried using my mouse when i woke up and it would not respond. Not to clicking, moving, no different mode worked. It seems the receiver stopped working. It can charge it but it doesn't pick up a signal form anything. When i plug the mouse in to use it corded, it seems to work fine.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't have purchased the mouse had I known the receiver was a piece of junk.

5 out of 5 eggsMy first quality mouse.

This review is from: Perixx MX-3200, 2-in-1 Wired and Wireless Gaming Laser Mouse - Avago 5000dpi ADNS 9500 Laser Sensor - Charging Dock with Li-ion Battery - Dual Antenna with Optimal Wireless Connection

Pros: Corded or Cordless, charging dock, desktop tray icon that shows percent charged, on-the-fly dpi switching, dual optics, flatlike mouse, mouse lighting which turns off when you stop moving mouse after a few seconds, and most of all Omron Micro Switches. Hope this last years since my other cheap mice stop working after a few months since the switches start going bad. Don't know of any other mouse with this many features!

Cons: Must have USB power when computer is off to recharge mouse. Wish they had a left handed version so the 4 side buttons could be on the right side.

Other Thoughts: Don't use the 4 side buttons since I'm left handed and hard to use but could set two of the buttons to cut/paste or other useful keyboard actions.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost completely awesome

This review is from: Perixx MX-3200, 2-in-1 Wired and Wireless Gaming Laser Mouse - Avago 5000dpi ADNS 9500 Laser Sensor - Charging Dock with Li-ion Battery - Dual Antenna with Optimal Wireless Connection

Pros: Really like the features. I shopped around and it seemed to be the best one for the price and great features. This is coming from someone that normally won't pay more than $20 for a mouse/keyboard but I decided to treat myself a bit and get some nice features and wireless and this was the one.

Spare "feet" that I didn't even know were part of the package! One of the reasons I was replacing my old mouse (ideazon reaper).

Low profile is a lot more comfortable than my old mouse. Though I wouldn't like it, but it's great.

Cons: The "color" button doesn't seem to do anything. I'm partially color blind, so it could be switching from blue to purple for all I know though. Switching between eco and gaming looks like blue/red so I was hoping the color switch button allowed you to pick those colors.

I was under the impression that "dual lasers" meant it used both, but according to the labels underneath and the mode, it seems IR is power savings and gaming is laser. I was hoping for some redundancy but I guess next time I will look for 2+ lasers maybe since one of the reasons I was upgrading was my sweaty hands messing with my old laser mouse (ideazon reaper). Which is funny because this one seems to trigger the volume buttons from my sweat (light when it happened, actually), which is disheartening but could have been an accident or fluke. I will have to test it soon getting nervous playing some tense games that make my hands sweat to see if it's an issue or not.

The mode switcher could have been made better. It's pretty easy to overshoot the eco mode to off.

Side buttons look uncomfortable, but surprisingly not but they are rather hard to push and although the mouse is rather heavy, it's feet are rather slick which means using those buttons will definitely throw off your aim, limiting there actual usefulness or nullifying them completely. The volume buttons (front two) can't be mapped inside games that detect which button is pressed. I have yet to install the included software but I suppose you can map them through there, but not nearly as good. At least they don't default to backwards/forwards like most mice, which I find highly annoying using push-to-talk while browsing or something.

Although the grooves look cool, I imagine they will be dirt magnets. The shiny plastic I know is already. Not only is the right side extremely slick (again, I have sweaty hands), but it also attracts dirt like a magnet, has grooves that can collect dirt as well (and also slick so not even a viable "grip"), and the mouse is rather heavy so it's kind of painful and tedious to grasp it with pinky/ring finger to lift and reposition. It's KINDA OK if you grasp really low (avoiding the grooves grabbing the bottom edge), but then your fingers are rubbing the desk/mousepad which adds even more annoyance if you feel any dirt, pick it up on your fingers, or add sweat to the desk/mousepad possibly making the laser wig out.

DPI buttons could be a bit easier to press and more accessible without moving your entire hand or having to look down. I like that you can go up or down instead of cycle (I usually only use the first two settings), but negates the usefullness when it's not easily accessible to do so. I would even prefer a single cycle button that's easily accessible rather than this setup. I doubt I will ever use it in the middle of a game due to this but it's fine doing tedious clicking like selecting single-letter hyperlink categories like I did yesterday.

Other Thoughts: While I think it's an all-around great mouse and has great features and got it for a pretty darn good price considering the quality of the materials, features, wireless, etc, I don't really see it as a good choice for a serious gamer.

I doubt many gamers really get a wireless mouse, but this one has great signal and I found that 90% of my annoyance with my old mouse was the freaking cord either giving friction from having slack on the desk, pulling from hanging over the ledge restricted movement hanging down the side (I had a sweat spot half hanging, half teetering on the keyboard tray track, but it constant feel behind or to the side pull or restricting movement).

This one offered all the solutions I needed but it provided some new problems.

If they had at least not made that huge bulge to the right side or at least made it non-slick (which I may find a way to coat it with something grippy like spray-on rubber or something) I would basically be 99% satisfied as the other gripes are not all that bad and I could live with them (minor nuisance) because it's an everyday thing, possibly effects the health of my fingers (extra strain), and extremely effects my confidence in being able to perform in games. Maybe I will eventually get used to it, but for now it's a huge kink in my stride.

tl;dr
If you are a gamer and/or have sweaty hands, you might be better of looking around as spending even $20 more is probably worth it to avoid the unmappable buttons from games, non-slick grip, possibly redundant laser, better fit to grip, better DPI setup.

The design of the mouse is pretty stupid. For looks, not use. The features are great but their positioning and implementation were not that great.

I think my problem was I bought based on "on paper" stats and price. I should have had a good look at the pictures and thought about grip and contour.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome mouse

This review is from: Perixx MX-3200, 2-in-1 Wired and Wireless Gaming Laser Mouse - Avago 5000dpi ADNS 9500 Laser Sensor - Charging Dock with Li-ion Battery - Dual Antenna with Optimal Wireless Connection

Pros: This thing is one smooth mouse. My second one of this model. Wired/Wireless option. Wired gets you 1000 polling rate. The cable is braided and the plug has a locking mechanism so it will not accidentally unplug from the mouse.

The charging base is also the receiver. A full charge only takes less than an hour. And a full charge will last you multiple days. I charge every weekend.

There's a switch on bottom with three modes. Off/Powersaving/Gaming. Powersaving is for everyday stuff.
Gaming mode lets you max out your DPI. The top wheel light is blue when PS mode, red when Gaming mode. You can also turn the lights off if you want. Even the charge indicators on the side can be turned off.

The software has two profiles, "Office" and "Entertainment". It also has five programmable buttons: Four on the side, and the mouse wheel button.

Angled grip on right side makes it easy to palm/grip.

Cons: There are no generic "Back" and "Forward" options for the side buttons. You will have to use a macro, "alt+Left Arrow" and "alt+Right Arrow" for your browser controls.

Other Thoughts: Unless you're like a ping pong champion, 5000dpi is more than enough. I cannot even begin to keep up with 5000.

There's a software option "Pointer Wheel" Open/Closed. When it's "Closed", it makes sure the mouse only works on the window currently selected. If it's "Open", your mouse will work on whatever window it is currently on top of. So your wheel may be working in your full screen game, but also on the browser behind you

Perixx customer service is just awesome. This mouse died on me. I sent them a message two days before Xmas, and they responded on Xmas EVE!! Not only that, five days later, they're sending me a replacement.

Only one form to fill out, no circus of messages, no shipping expenses. Absolutely the best experience I've had with a customer service dept.

Buy their brand without worry, because they stand behind their product.

3 out of 5 eggsSome Quirks to it

This review is from: Perixx MX-3200, 2-in-1 Wired and Wireless Gaming Laser Mouse - Avago 5000dpi ADNS 9500 Laser Sensor - Charging Dock with Li-ion Battery - Dual Antenna with Optimal Wireless Connection

Pros: Wired/Wireless
The cord is braided so it may last longer if pinching occurs or my cat tries to eat it.
Lights are Blue/Red , receiver is blue and will light up a dark room, no need for night lights.
Optics are nice
Quick response
Power options are nice

Cons: Almost gave up on the mouse do to the software. The programing of the buttons are a little quirky, saving preferences didn't always work. Perhaps I didn't save things correctly though.

I initially had issues with scrolling, forward/back.

Other Thoughts: A bit smaller than the sidewinder that I was using, but once I use it more I am sure to become accustom to to it. You definitely hold your hand differently on it.

Thanks to a previous reviewer for the tips on the macros, they really help with setting up device.

I am not a heavy gamer, but I do like certain advantages to a more programmable mouse.

Overall a pretty decent mouse for how I will use it.

5 out of 5 eggsMe likey

This review is from: Perixx MX-3200, 2-in-1 Wired and Wireless Gaming Laser Mouse - Avago 5000dpi ADNS 9500 Laser Sensor - Charging Dock with Li-ion Battery - Dual Antenna with Optimal Wireless Connection

Pros: Excellent mouse! Solid feel, not a tiny mouse, smooth button operation and quick recharging (using both USB plugs). Using laser so power lasts for 3-4 days of constant use before needing recharging. Haven't tried optical yet. Mapping software seems to work well.

Cons: Nothing really worth mentioning. The lights do a weird heartbeat thing when charging, and that can be a bit bright in a dark room, but that's about it.

Other Thoughts: I'm not using it for gaming either, just needed a few extra options/buttons for work and this mouse is perfect.
