4 out of 5 eggsAmazing, but discontinued, mouse

Pros: Lasted me almost 3 years; getting a (different) replacement mouse was a simple phone call away (although I had to clarify that the Sidewinder was not a piece of software and was indeed a mouse).

Cons: They stopped manufacturing this mouse, so don't expect to be able to find this mouse after it's been sold out, nor get a replacement mouse if it breaks. Luckily, was able to buy one here before they vanished.

Other Thoughts: I have owned this mouse for ever, approximately just under 3 years, and this is, by far, my favorite gaming mouse I've used (have tried the G5, G500, Razer DeathAdder, and a few others in my attempts to find a similar mouse). This was surprising for many, including myself, because there's nothing special about this mouse; there are no insertable weights (and it's fairly light on top of that), only simple on-the-fly DPI switching (up to 2000dpi), with a small extra button on each side of the mouse. I can't really say exactly why I like it, but it's been a good companion to all my PC games. I took off one egg because it obviously doesn't boast as many features as other competitively priced mouses out there, but for myself it's a 5 egg mouse.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Great mouse for the price+free shipping.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Using only 2000dpi, no use for low dpi. I wish I could use the dpi buttons for something else.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Value Mouse

Pros: Good quality, good button customizing, comfortable, DPI on the fly, cheap.

Cons: Side buttons could be a bit farther back on the mouse, but not bad enough to take an egg off.

Other Thoughts: Happy with it so far. Got it on Shell Shocker, great bargain!

5 out of 5 eggsits a mouse!

Pros: its a mouse!
good build quality
laser
clean design
great innovation with the three buttons to change dpi

Cons: the foward/back buttons are a little cumbersome to use if you are used to right handed logitech mice. its easy to get used to this mouse though, which is then a breeze to use..

Other Thoughts: got this on shell shocker for an awesome price with a free mouse pad....awesome deal!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great price for the features. Each button is completely customizable, you can even change the DPI-on-the-fly settings which is really nice. Scroll wheel is perfect for rapid scrolling or only scrolling slightly. Extremely comfortable.

Cons: The button on the right side of the mouse is in a weird position for my finger, very minor problem and not worth deducting any eggs. Also my last mouse had a tilting scroll wheel which I occasionally miss.
