My second mouse has now started the scroll jumping issue. If you scroll up or down, it jumps several pages in the other direction. This isn't a windows thing, or a connectivity thing, it's a Corsair mouse thing. Researching the "fix" for it, this has been an issue since Corsair started making gaming mice, and they can't seem to fix it.
To correct this behavior, you need to take the mouse apart, clean the wheel that receives the action from the scroll wheel, and then spray it with something like WD40. It will work for an undetermined amount of time until you have to do it again.
I likely will not buy another Corsair gaming mouse specifically for this reason.
I felt the software to be a bit more user friendly than the SteelSeries also. Windows 7 picked up the device immediately and the drivers and firmware update applied without issue. Be sure to download the package from Corsair instead of letting Windows decide the settings (corsair.com/downloads). The SteelSeries application wasn't as intuitive and would also crash once in a while.
Overall I'm extremely happy I bought this. I even found myself rediscovering my game collection again because the mouse is so comfortable and smooth to use. One small tip: if you plan to buy this on Amazon, it's sort of a crap shoot to get the best price. I had this on my wishlist for about a week and it was first priced at MSRP but two weeks later it dropped to $41 so I pulled the trigger. Within A DAY the price rose $7 and then another $11 after that. At the time of this review it was currently priced at $58.99. So I would add it to your list then monitor it from time to time. With Corsair you're paying for the name but I personally wouldn't value this mouse higher than $50.
The side pads as many have said have a sweet feeling sandpaper-like compound... BUT this doesn't last as long as one would like for the thumb position IF you use the mouse a lot. MANY mice today use that decrepit shiny and sticky plastic for where your thumb/pinky finger goes...
The feeling after this compound wears down is akin to a slightly stickier plastic. The plastic itself is hard enough so the feeling is never too annoying; I must stress how important this is, because a soft and sticky plastic for my thumb and other fingers will have me wanting to throw the mouse away nearly immediately. I wish the normal sandpaper feel had been able to keep itself for at least 6 months. But this is still much better than my last mouse in feel and touch. I love the overall design of it. I'm just grateful they didn't go with that nasty, shiny stuff CM used on my Havoc.
Anyway, I updated firmware and installed software in 2 minutes. While not quite the extensive system of options that CM has, this mouse for the time being has topped my old Havoc which had the aforementioned sticky plastic problem requiring tape. Otherwise I think CM's software is better and allows a lot more functionality with LEDs and a couple other things. What is there is pretty decent and you can tune each axis on the pad and have three different slots for DPI, easily reachable below the scroll wheel. A single, small and red LED light is for the first slot and this goes to three lights. They are pretty low key and not too bright. I shut off the Corsair logo as it was too bright and annoying for my tastes.
I am not sure what the native specs are on the DPI sensor but I use about 900-1200 on my desktop and it feels about perfect. I certainly don't need much higher. My PC gaming is mostly done with a controller, but scrolling and clicking buttons works great for the games that need it.
As with every mouse make sure it fits your hand. I feel I can put my palm into if I want or just basically finger touch it and the control and ease with how this mouse glides makes mousing fun again (I have been using some dimestore version for the past 10 days). They have a nice supplement of weights if you choose to lower what they have at the factory. I don't mind it right out of the box. Others will want to take a weight or two out.
The roller is also topnotch here and has a metal and rubber design. Still working great after a year of solid work. The materials have held fairly well over this time and I am completely satisfied with the mouse. All in all a homerun for the M45.
