5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing mouse for the price!, January 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: E-3lue Cobra EMS109BK High Precision Gaming Mouse with Side Control 1600dpi (Electronics)
So i bought this back in November and waited before I gave it a review. This mouse has been amazing! I havent had any problems with this mouse! I use it mostly for League of Legends or Sc2, and it is pretty damn accurate! This is, in my opinion, a much better mouse than the Mad Catz R.A.T 3, which is about 50 dollars. But lets keep this review short.

The good:
-3 DPI settings, which can be switched from the blue button in the center, its pretty hard to accidentally switch settings. Switches from 400, 800, 1600.
-Accurate, for the price, i didnt expect it to be this precise.
-Feel and Finish, the feel to the mouse is pretty awesome, its a nice rubber texture to it. And well, look at that awesome blue light!
-Durable, I say this last part because i have dropped this mouse 3 times, and they were pretty hard drops :(. But it withstood it! The only problem that i had
was that the buttons got stuck so every time i clicked it, it didnt pop back up. All i had to do was pop the front where the two clickers are and pop it back in and good as new!

The bad:
-Scroll wheel, it doesnt click, so you have to feel for the "clicks:. I can imagine this being very annoying for games like counter strike where you use it to switch weapons.
-That awesome blue light, for some people this could be a problem, its ALWAYS ON! well this was the case for me since i have it hooked up to my macbook.
-No DPI setting indicator, now this isn't too bad for me, but for others i assume it might be. EDIT! so on the mouse there is an LED on the button that changes brightness depending on the setting, the dimmer, the lower setting it is
-Not Mac compatible, you need some sort of third party app to use the buttons

Overall i would recommend this mouse for any gamer! The price for this is really good. And in my opinion it is way better than the RAT3.

EDIT!
Soo after 6 months of heavy use, it finally died out on me! During the last few months there was some loss of accuracy, but still a pretty awesome gaming mouse for 10 dollars!

The extra buttons on the side enables fast scrolling in Firefox and Chrome; if you click it, directional arrow appear in a circle. If you move your mouse in any direction, the page will scroll based on which way you move it.

Could be useful for some, but would be nice if we could reassign these buttons to something else (like "Back" in the browser, or maybe even volume control.

EDIT: There are several third party apps that allows you to assign these buttons to whatever keyboard shortcut or function you want. I used "USB Overdrive" and it works perfectly for Back/Forward buttons in the browser. You can assign it to other shortcuts too, like copy/paste for instance, or even run an application or an AppleScript.
