5 out of 5 eggsNice Mouse

Pros: This mouse may not be amazing to some who spend a heavy amount of cash on input devices, but to me it's the best mouse I've ever owned. Feels right in my hand, nice extra buttons, LED lights give it style, laser with high DPI is nice and the ghost app that comes with it is useful.

Cons: Left mouse clicker seems like it will wear out sooner than later and the left button #two seems slightly cheap as well.
But nothing to so bad to remove any eggs. I've always used a standard 2 button mouse with a wheel.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mouse

Pros: -Customizable Colors to match any rig/keyboard
-On the fly DPI switching
-Says 2000 DPI, but Ghost Macro program allows up to 3200
-Feels perfect in the hand
-Tilt wheel

Cons: -The wire is a little rigid for a mouse cable
-The side buttons feel really cheap and flimsy

Other Thoughts: Basically this is one of the best deals for a mouse out there. It's capable of being the gaming mouse you want, but also good at being a useful tool in many other programs. Because of the 3 modes, I'm able to set up my controls for games on one, another to control music and volume with the tilt wheel and side buttons, and another for using illustrator and photoshop to do repeated functions.

Overall, it's the perfect mouse for me.
10/10 would bang.

5 out of 5 eggsNice mouse

Pros: I should have bought this for my first build, didn't realize it changed colors. I originally got the other one, the 6900 series, without the color change. The grips are slightly difference, and the entire palm on this one is a rubberized material, like it a lot better.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Love the mouse, cheap too! Selectable DPI + color-change = great :)

1 out of 5 eggsWobbly Mouse

Pros: The rubberized coating on the mouse feels nice.

Cons: The mouse just doesn't work well. The cursor wobbles all over the screen. It can't be moved in a straight line at all. I've used it on a bunch of computers and surfaces at get the same result everywhere. When I used it on my laptop I could draw a straight line in paint with the touch pad but it would be all jagged if I used this mouse.

Also, the LED on the mouse flashes when the computer is off, which is really annoying if you sleep in the same room as your computer.

Other Thoughts: I'm staying away from Gigabyte mice in the future. Knew I should have stuck with Logitech.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mouse

Pros: -Adjustable DPI goes higher than you'll ever need for a 1080p screen
-Pick any 3 DPI Settings of your choice for on the fly DPI Changing
-Huge amount of vivid LED colors to choose from, pick up to 3 at a time (changes between)
-No problems with mouse buttons sticking, mouse wheel messing up, mouse sticking on mouse pad, laser not picking up signals correctly, or any other common mouse wear and tear with over 1.5 years of use.

Cons: -A little on the big size for a mouse and I have relatively small hands for my size, but I'm still capable of using fingertip grip with no problems.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended for any gamer. I tend to keep it on green to match my mouse pad and keyboard.

3 out of 5 eggsRandomly locks up

Pros: Looks cool, works well when it works.

Cons: Randomly locks up and you cant move the mouse for like 10 seconds every few minutes. Causes me to die in Diablo 3...

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless

Pros: I love this mouse. I has a nice size, a nice weight, the mouse wheel has the perfect amount of resistance, the buttons aren't too loud.

Cons: The glowing of the colors is kind of annoying, but that's it and doesn't merit taking off an egg.

Other Thoughts: This is a great mouse and I really recommend people to get it. For $35 it's one heck of a mouse.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mouse

Pros: Very comfortable mouse, I have large hands and am able to game for hours on end without having to reposition my hand. The ability to change the dpi settings on the fly is pretty sweet also.

Cons: None yet

5 out of 5 eggsWow!

Pros: Comfortable, solid feeling, pleasantly light and responsive buttons. Wheel feels great and has fantastic feedback. Sensitivity is adjustable. Long run of wide gauge USB cord with gold connector.

Cons: Man this thing is sensitive! The wheel sensitivity is a bit high for some games, you might scroll right past the weapon you want. Easy to accidentally hit the "profile change" or the "DPI change" buttons on the top of the mouse if you aren't careful.

Other Thoughts: This is a comfortable, solid gaming mouse. Plenty of sensitivity for a discerning gamer, but a little too sensitive for my taste. I sneezed shortly after I began using it and my pointer shot clear across both my monitors and I had to hunt for it in the corner. Even for someone just wanting a quality mouse for regular usage, this is great. The software that comes with the mouse is great. 3 profiles with plenty of options and adjustments. Pinky rest could extend a bit further, but I have long fingers. It is only as sensitive as you want it to be, and after a few tweaks it is working perfectly for me. This mouse adjusts to you, rather than you adjusting to it! Great for gamers or regular users.
