This mouse is by far the best I've had. It is very comfortable, very responsive and very reliable, perfect button placements and the buttons react very nice. This is the perfect mouse for FPS games and everyday computer use. Comparing it to other great mice I have had :
-The comfort of the mouse is comparable to the RAT series which is looked at as the most comfortable.
-The buttons on the mouse are BETTER that the Logitech MX Performance mouse. Simply because the MX has bad button placement and hard to use left and right scroll IMO.
-The tracking is almost as good as the Razer Taipan which is looked at as being the best for gaming(because of its two sensors for height tracking). The only downfall to this mouse is that if you tend to lift the mouse a lot, which FPS gamers do sometimes, it tracks a little high off the mouse pad.
This mouse is a definite buy it is amazing and its only downfall is the height tracking, which I got use to very fast buy making the mouse lighter and lifting it up more. Also this problem can possibly be solved by a driver or a firmware update in the future. The software was a bit frustrating in the start because I don't read manuals, writing macros was not intuitive at all but I used the help feature and I got the hang of it. With that being said the only two flaws of this product are VERY minor IMO.
EDITED: After looking up the tracking at high lift distances there is a fix for it. You can either assign the "Perfect precision tracking" function to a mouse button, apply settings, press that button, and move your mouse around. The alternative to this is easier and my choice, all you do is hold the profile button(The button on the right, to the right of "right" click) for 3-5 seconds, the red dpi buttons will blink, move your mouse around your mouse pad. Problem solved. THE PERFECT MOUSE!!!!
I would highly recommend this mouse to anyone and would buy another one in a heart beat.
I've used the Razer Deathadder (with and without sidegrips), Logitech G5, and a slew of other mice I can't even remember. I've settled on this Gigabyte M8000X because it is extremely ergonomic for both full hand and claw grips.
The sides (and to an extent the top) have some grip making it really easy to move the mouse especially in winter (unlike the Deathadder).
The scroll wheel is super smooth and doesn't require that much force or cause pain on your finger (unlike the Deathadder).
If you get the GHOST software for this mouse it is stellar - let's you customize the lights, sensitivity, macros, button functions, EVERYTHING! You can literally rebind the left mouse button to something else (as long as you bind a normal click to a different button so as to not lock yourself out).
Tracking on the mouse is pixel perfect. Never had an issue with lift off distance or anything at all.
Anyways, to sum up - this is the most comfortable gaming mouse I've ever used. I've been using it for 4 years now and just bought a spare. You can use it for gaming and 8 hours of computer work - no problem. Trust me, I've spent almost half a grand looking for the right mouse...
Please continue to make this mouse Gigabyte!
Form factor is compatible with several grip styles, comfortable shape rises to meet your palm, good for medium sized hands.
Surface finish and textures are as good as other reviews state, was pleasantly surprised.
Software is functional, but in no way is it on par with major manufacturers in terms of quality, sub-par interface makes writing macros and custom functions difficult and sometimes counter-intuitive.
Placement of sticker and sharp edges surrounding laser port encourages buildup of lint, causing random tracking/skipping.
Mouse wheel left and right scroll functions are far too easy to engage when center-clicking the wheel, effectively makes this a mouse with two fewer buttons, assign them at your own peril...
Quick-Switch profile button is not re-assignable, which is disappointing since the placement is perfect for an alternate function (confirmed with Gigabyte tech support).
Other thoughts: In the past month I've tried 4 different mice, for what it is worth in the context of this comparison I'll add that the M8000X is the only one I did not return. A few improvements could really make this mouse stand out. Ultimately I kept it because price/comfort but not features.
Other mice I tried recently: Sensei Steel Series (my other top pic, best mouse wheel, best software, not as comfortable) Razer Taipan (better for small hands, a close 2nd for textures), Logitech G700S (Comfortable but large, total mouse wheel design fail, not typical for logitech), Cyborg R.A.T 7 (great construction quality but no option to remove thumb tray, back/forward buttons do not click/feedback).
