2 out of 5 eggsIkari Steel Series

Pros: Ergonomic fit. High precision mouse.

Cons: Mine started deteriorating in less than 6 months. It was great while it lasted, but now it clicks multiple times when I just click the mouse once. It will also move the mouse suddenly across the screen sometimes; something absolutely devastating when it happens in the middle of a game. Maybe I just got a bad one.

Other Thoughts: Made in China

2 out of 5 eggsdouble clicking goof of a mouse

Pros: Fits hand nicely - Yah i got bigger hands than some.
Doesn't have a lot of extra buttons - has 3.
Easy to set up software that doesn't get in the way.
Variable dpi speeds and can change on the fly to 1 of 2 presets.

Cons: The Bad - left clicker started double clicking within several months.
The Ugly - Steelseries tech support - I got one help email, with a program called mousefix attached - it didn't work for me; I did, however follow the instructions about putting it to the Start menu - still this mouse doubleclicks unexpectedly.
Another Bad thing - Steelseries did not respond to my email stating the above.
Good Thing - I'm going to buy another Logitech Gx whatever.

Other Thoughts: Save your money - even tho its out of stock here, its still buyable at Steelseries.
I've had 3 of these mice - the first one succumbed to the 2times clicking after 4 years - good enuf; the 2nd one is hardly used, but still good; obviously this 3rd one is ba-a-a-a-a-a-a-d, but its condition isn't as bad as that first one, but its still unuseable.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat for 12 months

Pros: I purchased this mouse back on Feb. 7, 2011 and it was a great mouse. Loved the ergonomics for being held in my hand, loved the light resistance of the mouse buttons to click.

Cons: I started to have problems last week with single clicking on things and the mouse would double click by itself. I opened a support ticket and found that SteelSeries has a 1 year warranty for North America customers which I fall into.

Other Thoughts: The double clicking problem is annoying and it looks like I will be replacing the mouse with a Logitech mouse. I had the Logitech MX500 and G5 and never had problems with either mouse. Now I decide to try something new and the Ikari doesn't live up to long-term reliability.

Looks like I will be switching to a Logitech G9x

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Loved it while it lasted.

Cons: After more than a year of loving this mouse, the cons started popping up:
-faded/bubbly paint
-the mouse buttons dont have the "springiness" they used to. I think the plastic used to provide a small force from being bent. But now the only force is the actual switch inside.

and the third problem is the worst. Intermittently the mouse will disconnect for 3 to 5 seconds and then reconnect. This is extremely annoying. (especially in starcraft when you cant click, your view flys to the left, and your mutas are flying over marines) I've downloaded new drivers looked at my motherboard/usb hubs and tried fiddling with any mouse settings i could. I looked it up and apparently this problem is pretty common after about a year of use. I loved this mouse, but its not meant to last.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this mouse

Pros: I've had this mouse for well over a year now and never had any problems with it. It's been with me for over a year now and many places (including a year long deployment) and it's performed exactly as it did day 1.

Being able to save dpi settings without software was a huge plus for me. Button layout is perfect.

Cons: The logo and some of the finish fades after a while, that might bother some people.

Other Thoughts: I've had this thing since September of 2008 and other than the fading it's still as good as new.

4 out of 5 eggsA year of heavy use, from a critic

Pros: Large mouse skates. The mouse skates are durable and the mouse still glides very smoothly after a year of heavy use. I've had some competing mice require new mouse feet after 4-5 months..

It's nice that the mouse saves all your settings in the mouse it self. it's a nice luxury and definately a reason i'd pick steel series again.

The ergonomic design really wants you to palm the mouse, and move your whole arm which is amazing for FPS games. If you tend to move the mouse around with your wrist (RTS games) the ergonomics won't be a selling point. the ergonomics take a little to get use to , but it's worth the comfort.

Cons: Logo on the bottom of the mouse feels cheap and was showing wear after about 2 months use. My steel series mouse pad actually had a logo that effected the way their mouse was moving. they probably don't test their products with the branding applied.

It's a laser mouse, the ergonomics suggest long slow mouse strides, but the sensor wants you to play with a higher mouse speed.(laser mice are known to skip on low sensitivity) Small oversight and a lot of nit-picking by me...


The button in the middle of the mouse that changes the mouse sensitivity is in a bad location, you'll press this from time to time when you don't want too. I've never found it to be a problem in game, but it's worth noting. You can use this button on the fly in game, but expect about a half a second delay.

The reason I wrote this review, is because after a year of heavy use the mouse 1 button started doing double clicks when i didn't want it too. however, a year is more then the other brands i've tested ca

Other Thoughts: My mouse needs to be replaced, and i find myself looking at steel series mice again. I've had a lot of experience with other gaming mice on the market. I'm Happy with my purchase and the steel series brand despite all the cons.

I wanted to try a laser mouse at the time, but i feel optical is still a better choice especially for FPS games. I'm looking to buy one of steel series optical mice that are less ergonomic. If you want a nicely shaped durable laser mouse, this is a great choice.

1 out of 5 eggsDONT BUY

Pros: Great sensitivity. Great feel. If you have free money to waste 90 bucks for a great mouse that will last you no longer then the warranty on the product...

Cons: Stopped working just after 1 year warranty ran out. You will find many people reporting disconnection from USB if you search other reviews. Very annoying, disconnect and reconnect to USB as mouse loses power for no obvious reason yet multiple reports lead me to believe this is manufacturers defect, but they will not fess up to that or offer refund of their product.

Other Thoughts: They stop working after warranty expires, terrible mouse for the price you pay I expected it to last me years not months...
