This mouse is amazing. It glides VERY smoothly and the soft touch rubber makes it really comfortable. The click wheel is solid and the adjustable DPI settings are very convenient. You can also customize the lighting scheme any way you want! This is a fantastic mouse. Definitely the BEST $30 mouse you can get

Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
Pros:
-Flawless optical engine
-NO inherent hardware based acceleration
-Tracks extremely well
-Adjustable DPI in 4 flavors
-5 hardware profiles, 4 able to be customized by user
-Color changing LEDs. Mouse wheel, DPI buttons, CM Storm Logo. Able to light each individually with different colors or turn them off and on, continuous light, dimmer, and flash on button presses. color adjustable with RGB and brightness sliders. near infinite combinations. My BF3 profile is Teal and Orange and Torchlight 2 is Primary colors, etc.
-Can store 100 profiles on PC and load swap them out to mouse at any time very easily.
-Ambidextrous design with 2 thumb buttons on each side of mouse (if you're flexible, you can make use of them) (if you hold the mouse strangely and find yourself inadvertently pressing the opposing side's buttons, you can disable them)
-Can program long macros for MMOs
-Can adjust LOD (makes a small difference, but it's definitely there)
-Can adjust the response time of button clicks
-LMB and RMB are Omron switches and feel absolutely amazing
Scroll wheel is awesome and HUGE, the button requires less force to activate than a Logitech G5 and scrolls better, too

Cons (small gripes and nowhere NEAR being game breaker)
-rear heavy
-software is powerful but not intuitive (takes a few minutes to understand that you NEED to press apply after every change, and profile changes are strange to get accustomed to. Once figured out, though, it's EXTREMELY easy so fear not)
-would be great to have fully customizable DPI settings like Logitech mice rather than 800, 1600, 3200, 4000

Got the mouse in a week and a half ago. Have been getting used to the shape coming from an ergonomic Logitech G5.

The mouse works great for normal usage and for gaming on Linux systems. I've tested it on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, CentOS 6.2 and RedHat 6.4 with no problems, it works great out of the box did not have to install any additional drivers. I have it paired with the CM Storm QuickFire TK keyboard on my Linux systems. Also had no problems when using it with a KVM to switch between my systems including one on an HP docking station.

Color Name: Black, White Verified Purchase
This is honestly the best looking mouse I've ever purchased, with it's black and white color and LED multicolor customization. (Looks 10/10)

I mainly use this mouse for Battlefield 3 and other fps games. The sensor on it is near perfect, I found it to be the only one on par with the g400 and it's definitely better than the spawn. I've tried a lot of mice before but the recon and the g400 were the best and most accurate, except that I hated the grip on the g400. (Sensor 10/10)

The software is fully customizable. You can switch profiles/polling rate/dpi instantly, also you can change the LOD between 1-5 and much much more. (Software 10/10)

The only thing that doesn't make this the perfect mouse for me is the grip. I'm not saying it's bad. It's still pretty good and better than many other mice I've tried. You can use it as palm/claw/fingertip grip, but my only complain about it is that it's a little too high in the back. Also it would've been better if it had a little bit of curve under the side buttons instead of being flat. (Grip 8/10)

Overall I'm really glad I gave this mouse a try. I tried over 20 mice to find one that performs like the g400 but has smaller shape/better grip, and I finally found it..

Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
I bought this mouse for a client build, I had previously bought a CM Storm mouse for another build and it was a very nice mouse. I was looking for a good gaming mouse that wouldn't break the bank, and I found it here on Amazon. It had everything I was looking for, adjustable DPI settings, selectable lighting, and great performance. All at a great price. Gaming mice can get quite pricey, especially when you start to add on things like variable lighting and more buttons, etc.

I would describe the mouse as being somewhere in between a claw mouse and a fingertip. It is ambidextrous, I have been using an MX 518 for quite some time but I didn't find it difficult to get used to. It feels very intuitive and relaxing, probably what really made me love it is it is extremely comfortable. For comfort I would give it 5 stars.

The mouse is quite light, which I found I really like. If you are accustomed to a heavier mouse, then this may not be for you. They could have included weights, but I am sure that would have driven the price up. It has some of the slickest skates I've ever felt, this mouse is extremely fast!

There are two drawbacks, and they are fairly significant. One is that the cord is very thin, reminds me of the old mice that various companies included with their desktops back in the 90s. A gaming mouse should have a braided cord, it essential that the cord not be able to twist or tangle during a fragfest. As such, I sleeved the usb cable for my client and it is tangle free now. But that is why I have taken one star away, it just isn't acceptable for a quality gaming mouse to have such a flimsy tail.
