Great mouse, fits well in the hand, and the blue led lights are very cool. Buttons are responsive, and the DPI settings work well. Mouse has three power settings, Off, On, and On with lights, and the switch is separate from the place where the reciever is stored when not in use, so you don't have to worry about it turning on in a backpack or carry-case (my old mouse did that frequently). Also it looks pretty rad, especially when it's lit up. In terms of longevity and battery life, I will update further down the road, but right now I couldn't be happier.
Within twenty-four hours my mouse was overheating, turning off, and the batteries were so hot I had to leave the whole thing in the freezer so I could touch them to take them out. I contacted bangplus on Friday night about the issue, and they had a new mouse in my mailbox the following Monday. This one works like a charm. Very happy with the BangPlus service. Despite the initial problem with the mouse, I'm leaving the 5-star rating because they dealt with the problem so efficiently. Stuff happens. I would definitely buy from them again.

To say that this is the greatest mouse I've ever owned is an understatement. That said, it's still not absolutely perfect, but it sure feels close.
Despite the brand-name's similarity to the more commonly known Razer, this is not a cheap knockoff. The design behind this mouse is really something else. And dare I say it? I think I shall. This mouse matches, if not exceeds, the quality you would find with most mice priced at nearly 4 times the cost of this one. I used to have a logitech mouse that I bought for 2.5x the price that creaked if you squeezed it too hard on the sides and felt terrible. Not the case with this one, as applying pressure yields little to no give whatsoever. If you're concerned with bang for buck, look no further, because the number of features this mouse has in this price-range is unheard of.
~Like A Glove~
The E-3lue Mazer II fits to your hand like none other. Every button is easily accessible, even the two side buttons are great and are neither too far forward or set too far back (which is a rampant problem for gaming mice nowadays). The thumb guard, or "balance ring" as it's referred to on the side, provides support for the thumb and keeps it off of your desk and reduces unwanted drag. Whether you "palm" or "claw" grip your mouse, you can still reach every button pretty easily, though "clawing it" makes reaching the front side button slightly more difficult. Even though it does have some glossy textures at the back, this doesn't gather grime and fingerprints quite like most glossy mice since it's located at the base of palm and even provides some extra tactile traction. In addition, the right edge extends slightly to allow room for your ring and pinky fingers to rest. And the rubbery matte surface they used is slick, soft and resists sweat accumulation. Very, very nice.
~Not Lost in Translation~
One of the most noticeable features of this product is the packaging. Yes it comes exclusively in Chinese, but do not let this deter you. I was wary at first as most primarily Chinese-made products do not have a great track record for quality, but this mouse certainly breaks away from that norm. You don't even have to worry about whether or not you can understand the instructions that it comes with because you can just plug it in and play.
~Ready, Set, Glow!~
This thing glows in the dark like you wouldn't believe and the pictures on Amazon don't do it justice. Sure it's only one color, but it wears it well. The LEDs are very visible even in bright daylight and looks wicked at night. If you don't like it, you can toggle it with the off/on/glow switch on the bottom.
~Right is Right and Left is Wrong~
This mouse is obviously not ambidextrous, but the way I figure it is that you can have a really amazing mouse made for only one hand or an OK one for both. Besides, I have a friend who is left handed in everything he does and he has no problem using his right hand on mice like this. So if this is a deal breaker for you, I dunno how else I can help you.
~Resistance is Futile~
I cannot verify if this is just my mouse or affects all mice of this brand, but one thing I've noticed is that the scroll wheel has a little more give per "notch" than I anticipated. In other words, I thought that as I scrolled up or down, I would feel more resistance. Sadly, there is no way to change this to feel tighter, but it is mostly user preference and I'm sure that I'll forget all about it in a month. Inversely, the middle click button is difficult to depress. Over time I'm sure it'll loosen a bit. Either way, very small quirks and the scroll wheel stills performs its functions very well.
The biggest issue I've run into is the fact that every time you turn off the mouse, your DPI settings aren't remembered. The way it works is there's a DPI button under the scroll wheel that switches between 4 different predefined DPIs (500/1000/1800/ and up to 2500). Let's say I settle on the third setting that's about 1800 because it's sensitive but not too crazy. I get up from my computer to take a break and turn off the mouse, come back in a while and turn it back on. It goes back down to the default 500 and my mouse moves like it's stuck in molasses. Now I have to press that button two more times to get to that setting again. I know what you're thinking, "Oh no! not two more button presses!". Believe me, it might be a small extra step but it should be an unnecessary one and when done so many times can be really annoying. It would be really really nice if I didn't have to do this every time I turned it on.
I would also happily pay at least another $20-30 for more features, like more customizable DPI profiles, multiple LED color options (although the blue is nice as it is), greater English support and more in-depth driver software (but the plug and play aspect can be considered quite a plus), and a rechargeable battery with maybe a wired/cable option like a hybrid mouse. If it had those options, Mazer would undoubtedly dominate the peripheral market and blow companies like Razer out of the water.
All in all, an amazing mouse in terms of both quality and price. I got what I paid for and then some. I highly highly recommend it.

To start off, I would like to say that this thing is SICK! I am by no means a mouse expert, but I have used Razer's Naga Epic as well as a Tt Esports Theron (both about $100 or more), and the Mazer gets right up there with them at a fraction of the cost. In terms of functionality, everything on the mouse has a frighteningly fast response time, even though it is wireless. The dpi settings are simple and easy to change, and all the features (clicking, scrolling, moving) react sharply. It is a little bit of a larger mouse; that is, far longer and more stable than say a little HP wireless mouse. It fits very well into my hand, and tracks extremely smoothly on nearly all surfaces. The USB receiver required no additional software, it just installed itself very quickly and I was ready to rock and roll. Now, you're probably wondering about the glow. It's easy to notice during the day, and looks completely wicked at night. Very well built, so as to not blind you but still looks great. It has a nice weight and design to it, and I believe all the buttons can be macroed, but I'm not sure. Very well built, and doesn't feel cheap or flimsy at all. All in all, if you want a little extra DPI (2500) and like one glow color, nothing will EVER beat this price for quality.

I had intended to buy this mouse for my desktop, after trying the cobra jr mouse by the same company for my laptop. I was very impressed by the products, so silly me, I decided to skip reviews and just buy the best mouse E-3lue had. I came across the Mazer 2, and a few minutes later, they had my money.
Skip to now. After reading some reviews to figure out why the thing had so much lag, I eventually started to blame the sensor on the bottom - while true that it is not very bright, it doesnt seem to be the issue, as the response time is very smooth for the times that it does work, it just keeps cutting in and out. So after a few days of fiddling with it on the desktop, I took it out and popped the receiver into my laptop. Trying it at work, it worked instantly. Zero drop-outs.
So, while it is very easy to assume that the infrared on the bottom may be the issue, that is just not the case. It is the range. You MUST have this extremely close to the receiver for it to work properly. I would give this mouse 5 stars if it just had longer range, because I LOVE the weight and feel of it. It is perfect after inserting the two batteries included.
The DPI adjustment is a bit of a pain to have to adjust every time you turn on the mouse, but then again its not a giant adjustment to make to just click the dpi button twice or however many times you like for when you turn it on.

-Two easy to program buttons.
-Fits in the hand well
-Instructions are in Chinese. So I can't read it. May not be a con for you though.
-A little heavy.
Overall very surprising. I like this mouse very much. If you're having sensitivity problems then press down on the light between the two mouse buttons, directly below the mouse wheel.

This is a good gaming mouse. It has a fast response time and the lights are cool.
The only thing I have seen that is annoying is if it you stop moving it for a short time it goes to sleep and you need to move the mouse around for it to wake up.

I purchased this mouse so I could play the occasional game on my iMac and rMBP. The mouse would randomly stop scrolling and get "stuck". This would happen a couple times a minute and made gaming impossible. I wondered if there were compatibility issues with OSX so I tried using the mouse on my Windows Desktop, but the result was the same.
There appear to be many positive reviews, so I'm sure I just received a bad one...

I bought this for my boyfriend who loves online gaming, and he loved it for his birthday!
I didn't want to spend $50+ for a gaming mouse for him, but wanted something with special features and aesthetically pleasing. This was both.
I gave it 4/5 stars due to the odd sleep feature.
It will occasionally go into "sleep" mode and you have to turn it on and off.
I thought it broke after the first time he used it; however, it just needed to be restarted.
The colors are vibrant and he noticed a huge difference playing online (he specifically plays Diablo).
I highly recommend for anyone looking for an affordable alternative to Razer gaming mice.

I've had this mouse for about a month now and I like it a lot. I had been using a standard HP mouse that came with my old laptop and decided it was time to upgrade. This thing looked really nice for only $20, but because it's so cheap I was also a bit skeptical. After reading lots of reviews and watching some on youtube, I finally just took the chance on it and bought it. It's only $20 anyway, so why not. I'm really glad I did. This thing is very nice quality and works exactly the way it should. It's heavy the way a high quality mouse should be, the buttons are very responsive, the material is high quality and feels nice to the touch, the DPI setting is simple and quick, and of course the lights look super cool as well as the overall design of the mouse.
I remember reading a few specific complaints from other reviewers. Mainly about the battery life. Also the "glitchyness" or inaccuracy of the optical sensor, the mouse "randomly dying" sometimes, and overheating when used for too long. I'm going to go ahead and clear all that up for you now. First of all, so many people said the battery only lasted like one day or one week or something exaggerated like that. Remember I said I've had the mouse for a month. Well I haven't had to change the batteries even once and I'm a heavy gamer, on top of the fact that I almost always have the lights turned on. The battery life is amazing. I just use regular Duracell. It's not a problem at all. Second is the sensor. Some people said it didn't work well on a mouse pad, or that it skipped around. Completely untrue. The sensor works perfectly fine whether on my mouse pad, on my table, or even on the arm of the couch. I use the mouse on its highest DPI setting and it's very responsive and works great with all my games whether shooters like Warframe, or adventure games like Dark Souls. Next is the "random dying" issue that a lot of people mentioned. This mouse has a feature that apparently most of the other reviewers are clueless about. It's a feature that puts the mouse in a sleep mode after 5 minutes of inactivity. It's there to save battery life, and all it takes is one click of either mouse button and it will turn back on. It would be nice if you could deactivate this feature, but you can't. Honestly though it doesn't even matter. It's not a problem at all. As for the mouse overheating, I'll get straight to the point. It doesn't. It doesn't get hot, it doesn't even get warm. Even with the lights turned on for hours at a time. It stays regular temperature at all times. No problem there either.
There are just 2 small gripes I have with this mouse. When I first started using it, it was a little uncomfortable in my hand. But that may just be because my last mouse was so amazingly comfortable that nothing will ever compare. Haha. It would be perfect if it just had a small indention for your pinky to rest, rather than a hump. But It's really not a problem. Despite that, I've already adjusted to the way it feels and now it's actually pretty comfortable. The only other small problem I had, was the two side buttons. They're a bit wobbly and feel like they were just kind of stuck there on the side of the mouse at the last minute. But even so, they're still responsive and positioned in a nice spot.
Having said all that, I'd definitely recommend this mouse to any gamer who prefers wireless mice. It's very affordable, very nice quality, super cool looking, and works as intended. So if you're anything like me and you're skeptical because of the price and the fact that it's Chinese, go ahead take a breathe of relief and just buy the thing. It's a great mouse for $20. Trust me.
I hope this review helps some of you indecisive buyers like me. Thanks for reading.

For gaming, it's up there with razor! The only downside is that the 2 buttons that are on the side can't be programmed, you can set them to do something in some games , but you can't set them to do anything for your computer or in majority of other games.
