Pros: Feels fairly good in the hand. Good plastic, appropriate texture, pleasant weight, and a little larger than the Logitech G500(s). Good click resistance. Feels good. Bought to replace a five year old, worn out Logitech G500.
Cons: Scroll wheel squeaks like a smoke detector with low battery. Cursor wanders on the screen like there's a rock stuck under the sensor. Scrool wheel sometimes doesn't register. Click button sometimes gets stuck, and holds the click. After two weeks, the cursor started occasionally shooting to the very right side of the screen. DPI setting is either not sensitive enough or WAY TOO SENSITIVE. Deemed trash and replaced in 2.5 weeks with a Logitech G500s.
Other Thoughts: I bought this mouse to replace a Logitech G500 mouse that has started occasionally double-clicking when I would left mouse click. I got this one, and right from the time I plugged it in, I started wondering if my neghbor's smoke detector was low on battery -- too quiet to be mine. Eventually I traced it to the mouse's scroll wheel. Egad.
I kept using it, thinking, "No. This isn't right. I'm going to need to RMA this." After that, it gained a new problem: the mouse would occasionally miss a scroll on the scroll wheel. I'd scroll, wait, expecting something was delayed, but... nothing. It just didn't catch it. I'd have to scroll again.
Time went on. I started considering a new mouse. Then I was clicking on the scroll bar -- page down. Suddenly the screen shot down 8 screens -- it was _holding_ the click! what the h---?
I thought that's as bad as it could get. Squeaking scrollwheel, missing scrolls, stuck click... all on one mouse? This can't be random mishaps. Not _this_ many on _one_ mouse in _different_ areas of functionality/hardware. This has got to be bad quality components.
Time went on. I started looking for another mouse. This was 1.5 weeks of ownership.
Occasionally the mouse cursor would "vibrate" randomly about where I was mousing. Only when I moved the mouse, like using the mouse on top of a mirror, or single color surface -- not my textured mouse pad.
Later, my mouse cursor would disappear. I'd move the mouse, and there would be no cursor movement. "Great," I thought, "My computer's frozen." Actually not -- I found the cursor on the very edgey of the screen -- out of my immediate view on a 27" monitor. What? Really? This is flaky USB communication or something. I've seen it, but only vary rarely, on defective mice.
The whole while I felt it was moving too slow. Just.. uncomfortably so. I'd have to pick the mouse up at _least_ once to move across my full monitor. So I tried bumping the DPI up one setting -- I'd zip across in half the mouse pad. It's either frustratingly insensitive, or frustratingly sensitive. It lacks a good middle ground.
Every functional element of that mouse is defective. Every single piece. Every single component. Too much for it to be a simple manufacturing defect -- no way one mouse in a hundred could have every single aspect broken.
They call this a gamer mouse, but it would be DREADFUL to use for that purpose -- maybe if getting fragged is your goal. I'd rate this barely useable as a desktop mouse. Honestly, I'd rate this the worst mouse I've ever used, even compared to the first 20$ optical mice ever, even compared to ball mice. It's absolutely, AMAZINGLY awful.
I'm giving this two stars because it has a good feel in my hand, but mostly because I couldn't imagine giving one star short of it having staples sticking out of the mouse buttons and where my thumb, pinky and palm went. But don't think for a MOMENT that this mouse is acceptable.
