This review is from: UtechSmart Uranus MMO/FPS High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse w/ 50 to 16400 DPI, 13 Programmable Buttons, Weight Tuning Cartridge, 5 Side Buttons, 5 Build-in User Profiles, Omron Micro Switches (Black)
Pros: Hi quality construction Omran switches with a positive feel. Five pre-set Modes (fully editable profiles) with color coding LED on scroll wheel. A fairly simple Macro recorder / editor built into the controller EXE lets you program the array of buttons to suit your needs within the selected Mode (profile). Start the recorder and type what you need, then stop the recorder, edit as needed for a complete one button macro to execute complicated and or repetitive tasks. Surface is covered with a satin black rubberlike finish for an easy clean but sure grip that cuts down on fatigue. Machined aluminum base gives it a solid hefty feeling that will not warp or easily bounce. Fully adjustable cursor action within Mode setting with top access buttons to +- DPI on the fly to adjust for wrist sweep necessary on your current work screen. Coarse nylon weave USB cable covering protects cable from kinking and abrasions. The metal base rides on Teflon glides, and is shipped with an extra set.
Cons: None at this time (3 weeks service)
Other Thoughts: I cannot speak highly enough about the soft gentle curves of Uranus. Last year they were talking surgery on my hand. And by Chance I gave another excellent Utechsmart product a try. Within days the pain in the ligaments across the back of my hand was drastically reduced. After a few weeks there was no sensations of tenderness, pain, or tendons popping like guitar strings. The Old OEM mouse went in the trash. I can't help but wonder how many other people are suffering in the same way, thinking it is just getting old and athritis. Such a simple cure for me anyway.
The instantly selectable range of DPI is very handy. In resolutions only beginning at 1080 you may want to jump the DPI to cut down on wide sweeping movements. Or, conversely zoom in the DPI for very small movements you might encounter in detailed photographic editing, or gaming action like trying to get a scope to stop on that one pixel that represents a target at 1000 meters.
