The TRON mouse is much smaller than I anticipated from pictures and videos, and feels much lighter than other mice I've used. While part of the lack of width comes from the "cutaway" sides (a great feature to increase the comfort of using the side buttons), it took my large hands some time to adjust to this diminuitive mouse. I used the mouse on a wooden desk with no mousepad, and the mouse glides more smoothly (and precisely) than any I used in the past -- a real joy. The extremely long, braided cord never got in the way of my gaming.
The mouse sports two side buttons on both sides, the primary reason I bought this mouse. The left and right top buttons straddle the clickable scroll wheel, which in turn does not click left or right (also a win in my book). The scroll wheel works by soft gradations, with no option to switch to a smooth scroll. Razer did a superb job with button tension. The top buttons click easily and flawlessly, and the scroll wheel button provides enough resistance to prevent accidental clicks when scrolling, but not so much as to prevent intentional clicks -- it really can function as a third button.
All four side buttons use a higher tension than the top buttons, a critical feature as I experimented with how to hold the mouse. To effectively use the side buttons and still move the mouse, my thumb partially rests on the ridge below the side buttons, and partially on the buttons themselves. I never had a misfire on the side buttons, and never had trouble using them when I needed to.Read more ›
- I have small hands with long, lanky fingers and for my grip style, this mouse is dead perfect. I can see how someone with large hands could have some comfort issues like Bwappo did, but if you don't fall in that category, I do believe this is the mouse for you.
some quick bullet points
- 5600 dpi, insane, i can never go back. (my previous was 1800 dpi)
- To reinforce what Bwappo said, software is the best mouse software I've ever experienced.
- Perfect small - medium hand size claw grip.
- Ambidextrous design. VERY IMPORTANT. I have left handed friends and this is a must for me.
- easy side button use. ALOT easier in comparison to my old Razer Diamondback.
Bottom line, If you dont have very large hands and prefer an ambidextrous design, this is the best gaming mouse on the market, hands down.
EDIT (11/2/12): Confirmed by Razer, not compatible with Windows 8 at the moment. No ETA or anything.
The other problems is the left click button sometimes does not register when I click, and the middle mouse button will sometimes double click when I only click once. The side buttons coating also seems to be rubbing off after little use.
As for the Tron effects, I was let down. The stock pictures make it looks like it has a fantastic glow, but in reality its kind of faint and the lighting is very uneven. The only sound it makes is on boot of the computer which does a short tinny lightcycle sound for a couple seconds which was neat but could have been better.
The mouse itself was a lot smaller than I was led to believe. Its too small to rest your hand on it, and you have to kind of cradle your fingers above it to use.
Razer support is the worst part of all of this. They take forever to reply to requests, then once they do, its just a prescripted troubleshooting walkthrough which among other things suggests the mouse isnt working because you spilled something in it to make the keys stick. Yeah really great advice Razer...
Next time Im going with Logitech.Read more ›

If you want a mouse that looks cool, this is it! Performs like crap. I've tried different mouse pads, but the mouse sticks. Plain and simple. Updated drivers and doesn't help.Published 4 months ago by Joseph C.

It's a beautiful mouse with cool sound effects when it plugs in. It's ultra sensitive to movement, so it's almost annoying for my casual gaming and computer purposes. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Josh Donner
The mouse worked the first few months, after that it was a living nightmare. It would cut out and become super choppy at random times. Read morePublished 12 months ago by John Swing
Nice mouse, love the theme which is the entire reason I bought it in the first place, however I wouldn't say it was a gaming mouse, not much functionality in that respect. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Cassy-Jane
