4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's like an angel in your hand, especially once it "breaks in." This mouse is one of the most comfortable mice I have ever used. The material, button location and scroll wheel all come naturally and felt made for my hand. It's attractive, too.

I really like the sensor in this mouse. It doesn't have a lot of extremes but it works very well for almost every game at factory settings.

It can be used with or without a mousepad, the feet have not worn down that much at all, and overall it has just been responsive, durable and comfortable to use.

Cons: The scroll wheel is going. Scrolling down you sometimes have to press it, or it won't actually scroll and will just spin in place. Began very soon after the mouse turned one year old, too. It has been handled with care, no food touching it, no being shoved in backpacks, no slamming down, and it's been on a mousepad its entire life.

For the price, the scroll-wheel going at this point is unacceptable. If a $5 mouse from the 1990s can still scroll efficiently, a $90 mouse from last year should be able to last this long. One would think, anyway.

The software also no longer works and hasn't been updated very thoroughly. Mionix customer support has not responded to any emails.

Other Thoughts: It's unfortunate, because this is one of the hands-down most comfortable and efficient mice I have ever used. Everything about it screams luxury, except for the fact that the scroll wheel is breaking, and who knows what else will start to go next.

1 out of 5 eggsI suggest not purchasing mice from Mionix

Pros: * My original review of this mouse can be found on page 11, just look for the nickname [?]72uger.

It's a nice mouse aesthetically, but in usage terms it is not so great after owning it for quite a while, which I will explain below in "Cons."

Cons: I have owned this mouse since November 6, 2010 at 2:44 AM EST. It was a great mouse while it lasted, but it recently started malfunctioning.

What it does:
• Software no longer works as it once did and even when I uninstall it, and reinstall it, it still will not work and simply crashes. I can still use it as a plug and play mouse, but other than that I cannot fully utilize all of its functions.
• Certain buttons will register two presses, when I only press it one time (double clicking randomly), which others users have eventually began mentioning after my original review. It is extremely annoying, because when you're doing anything very important it makes you mess up often, so you have to redo what you just did, which decreases productivity.

Other Thoughts: I am a very neat, clean and organized individual. I keep everything I own in pristine condition, even though I use whatever I buy very often (daily). I never beat on anything I buy (e.g. slamming my mouse). I also have my computer (custom built it myself and been doing it for years) in a dust free environment, so in other words this mouse should have lasted a lot longer.

Mice I have used that give out too soon:
• Mionix
• Razer
• Certain Logitech
• Rat (Mad Catz)

I've used Steelseries mice and never had a problem with them, but who knows how long that will last (if they change in the future with quality).

5 out of 5 eggsOne word: "Awesome"

Pros: The most comfortable mouse I have ever used. I loved it so much at home, that I bought one for work. I previously had a couple of Logitech MX518's that I liked but I much prefer this.

I currently use it on my home DELL laptop, home Macbook Pro and workstation at work.

A coworker liked it so much, he also ordered one for work and then likewise another for his home use.

Cons: My wife does not like it if she ever sits at my computer. Something about it being too big for her hand. That maybe a factor for some with smaller hands?

Software for me was sometimes "glitchy" in that it would sometimes hang or crash when I used it to change the LED color of the mouse. I found a color I settled on though so I've not touched that software since.

3 out of 5 eggsHigh quality mouse

Pros: -super comfortable
-great for just about any genre (except for fast twitch shooters)
-looks cool
-Side led change as you change dpi settings and looks cool

Cons: -not good for fast twitch games
-couldn't see any difference when switching between the different shades of colors and some of the led colors didn't look like the colors the software depicted
-side buttons small and strangely placed
-not offered in whit or any other colors

Other Thoughts: I found this mouse to be comfortable but it just didn't allow for my style of grip so I found my performance in BF3 severely lacking. also in the mionix software for the mouse you have different shades of blues and greens and several other colors but I could not tell any difference between some of the different shades and color settings. lastly I found myself reaching uncomfortably for the side buttons, especially the forward button. I like to set my knife to the back button and the forward button to grenade. I found these buttons to be arbitrary or at least designed for someone's personal preference and for myself it was easiest to just use my keyboard instead of changing my grip on the mouse just to melee or grenade an enemy. lastly everything works as you want and the buttons click feels fast and reliable, the latches for the weights would sometimes not close properly and I would have to open and reset them to fit flush. the scroll wheel and dpi buttons are satisfying to use to the point that I would find myself playing with them while I surfed the web. If the design of the mouse had a few sharper edges as apposed to curves designed more for comfort than fast twitch accuracy. Everything I say is subject to debate but for myself the mouse is not for me but at the same time it was super comfy and controlled great if you can justify a wired gaming mouse at an eighty dollar price point that feels better suited for rpg's and mmo's than any other genre.

5 out of 5 eggsGood, if you get it right

Pros: It's the perfect shape for a claw grip, has an easy to hold but not tacky surface, and features a clever weight system able to compensate for the relative strength/weakness of your pinky compared to your thumb. The long braided cord resists pinches (and won't run out of batteries), and it tracks very well on a black wooden surface. The bright indicator on the left side makes it very clear which profile is activated, and the profiles can be tweaked to an almost absurd degree.

I haven't touched macros yet, since I personally consider it cheating.

Cons: Accidentally bricked my mouse with the firmware update, until I installed the Beta software (after uninstalling the v1.16 driver software) then Beta firmware. Now all adjustments run perfectly. Best to have a backup mouse in case something goes off.

Other Thoughts: You should blame your Internet, not your hardware, if you mess up on an online game if you have this mouse.

2 out of 5 eggsWas great while it worked

Pros: This mouse feels, looks, and responds great. I was even impressed with the packaging.

Cons: A week after buying this mouse I tried to do the firmware much like other people and ended up with a bricked mouse. I emailed support about the issue and have yet to hear back from them. Seeing as how this mouse is less than 30 days old I am just going to return it as defective. I won't be getting another Mionix. I really liked the mouse but for $80 a bricked mouse with no response from customer support after just under a week is a bad sign.

Other Thoughts: To those complaining of issues with crackling audio try changing your USB port. My motherboard has two USB's that are recommended for the mouse and keyboard. If I use ANY USB mouse in any other port I get the same audio problems you guys are complaining about. Your Audio chip is receiving interference from the USB port.

3 out of 5 eggsLongevity is questionable

Pros: -Software does an excellent job at detecting games and is a sanity-saver when games like Kingdoms of Amallur do not let you set custom functions to R/L buttons
-Fits my large hands well

Cons: -Could use a few more buttons since the two below the mouse will likely be used for switching DPI or profiles, leaving you with four buttons and middle-click. For the price, it seems a little low.
-As a number of people have mentioned, it has started to double-click when I single-click. It is very annoying.
-There seems to be some slight acceleration built into the mouse's firmware. I could be wrong, but a quick Google search seems to support my suspicions. Whatever the case, I find that I'm a bit sloppy navigating menus and hotbars when using this mouse.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't say that I regret my purchase, but the double-click issue is enough to make me avoid Mionix in the future. It's a nice mouse but there are better out there and many of them cost less.

1 out of 5 eggsnice while it worked...

Pros: Comfortable, nice change on the fly dpi

Cons: This thing sat most of the time on my gaming computer, didnt get used all that much and died in slightly over 1 and a half years. For an 80 dollar mouse the durability is not very good. I received a warranty card in the box for 2 years and support said that was for the EU not the USA so they wouldnt honor it.

Other Thoughts: Do yourselves a favor and buy a mouse that will last longer with some use on it.... I am going to buy a logitech for my next gaming mouse and get a 3 year warranty

4 out of 5 eggsEpic

Pros: Very conformable on the hand, supports even your pinky.
I broke my hand a long time ago and small mouses cause me pain after long periods of gaming. This mouse supports your hand very well. The program you can download on there website allows you to change a lot of setting good for any gamer. You can change the lighting color of it lots of choices on colors.
The mouse comes with weights so you can make it heavier to you liking!

Cons: If you like a small mouse this is not for you.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great mouse, my accuracy on all FPS games has gone up. My hand is medium sized and the ergonomics of this mouse is SPOT ON. I've never had a mouse where my pink and ring finger had their own little curve to rest on. I use to lose feeling in my pinky after playing for more than an hour. there are many great things about this mouse, but the way it feels in your hand, to me, is all I need to mention.

Cons: The driver was funky when I first got the mouse and did not act right, but they have since updated it and there are ZERO ISSUES with this product now.
