A great addition to any gamers gear.
Jose Torres Villacorta
I'm very disappointed because I've owned Saitek joysticks and throttles for many years and never had a problem with them.
Brennan Plunkett
The hatch buttons do not respond very often and the right mouse button does not work unless you push on it hard.

I was really excited about getting this mouse when I first heard of it. I mainly wanted it to use the thumb hat for movement in games. I got mine but within just a couple of hours the left direction on the hat lost its "click". I had to press hard on it to get it to respond, which of course ruined the ergonomics of the thing.

I was assured this was an isolated case though and thanks to Amazon's great replacement policy I soon had a new mouse to play with. This one lasted a while longer, about two weeks, but then it developed the exact same problem. I have to come to the conclusion that the hat buttons just can't stand up to extended use. I'm very disappointed because I've owned Saitek joysticks and throttles for many years and never had a problem with them.

Other than that problem the mouse is decent. The expanding size function is a neat trick and can help the mouse fit better in your hand. The programming software is really powerful and I like having multiple profiles, as well as being able to switch button functions between 3 sets with one button press. But ultimately I can't have a mouse whose buttons stop working after a short time. Especially when my years-old MX 1000 performs exactly the same as the day I bought it.

Verified Purchase
intro: i am a PC gamer and i bought this mouse as a replacement for my logitech optical track-man...

The first impression:
packaging is simplistic and the mouse comes out easy, no real flair for the box, mouse installs without a problem- software based instructions for installation are clear and concise, mouse wise its covered in ultra soft and smooth plastic-rubber, main body features gloss black trim- under side is hard plastic with a great finish, usb cord has a nice length to it and is gold tipped, buttons feel intact and tight, overall the product as a whole does not come off a cheap gimmick but rather as good quality for the money..

Function:
mouse has on its under side a scroll force switch to allow for quick or ultra precise scrolling-more for FPS weapons switching rather than web surfing..
switch is also tightly locked in place and recessed so it stands
little chance of ever being moved on accident-
also same goes for sensor bay, its recessed as well-

Top Side the big thing to note here are all the extra buttons:
you have a 4 way d-pad, then the thumb switch and then the angular forwards and backwards buttons: all of which are fully programmable to take key board keys or command sequences across 3 different mode switch's (top clear button with the cyborg head does this), I would say 21 possible key configurations at a min-, also the software features the ability to create keyboard macros for these mouse buttons.. Moreover, all of this can be neatly organized into profiles to meet the demands of any game-profiles are enabled through the cyborg active system tray icon..in windows.

I've owned this mouse for a few months now and I am very pleased with it. The response time is fast and the customization ability of the mouse as far as macro buttons and sensitivity adjustments is a great feature. The Only downside to the mouse in my opinion is that it is light in weight and not normally what I am used to. Other then that I love it.

this could have been a great mouse, but it only took about a month for the hatch buttons to stop working correctly. Then, about six months for the right mouse button to not work correctly. The hatch buttons do not respond very often and the right mouse button does not work unless you push on it hard. I gave up after playing a rts game earlier because of the right mouse button. Otherwise this is an amazing mouse.

The Saitek Cyborg Mouse looks pretty sweet, and contributed a lot to why I bought it and the matching keyboard. For how expensive this mouse is, it is very cheaply made. I had to return the first one I received because the right-click button did not work and even on the one I have now, the click buttons are not very responsive. You must hit it just right to get it to register, which makes it pretty entertaining to watch other people try to use my mouse as they hear the 'click' but nothing happens on the screen. Unfortunately, I didn't pay this much for an 'entertaining' mouse. I wanted a mouse that performed, and this one just didn't cut it. The only pros for this mouse are large number of buttons it has, but even that is hindered by Saitek's very, very poorly designed software, which makes it very hard to assign a function to a button. My opinion: avoid this mouse, spend your money with Logitech.

Pros:
This mouse is perfect for gaming but also for using Windows. Since you can program multiple profiles, you can switch between a gaming/non-gaming profile in a snap at the taskbar. Try programming up, down, left and right commands for the corresponding buttons on the 4-way hat switch, and ALT+F4 as the thumb button. This makes surfing the web and through files a breeze. The weight of the mouse is perfect, and the ability to control the laser sensitivity and scroll wheel resistance is also very nice.

CONS:
A little noisy but not much.
