Pros This is the most customizable mouse in the entire friggin world! The extras it comes with are in a super sexy padded metal box and comes with 2 rechargeable batteries. Works on almost any surface and those who say it's too complex and to many buttons all
Cons The price is a bit hefty. Would be nice if it came in different colors like red to match my Alienware R3.
Summary As long as you have a brain stem and a bit of extra cash, you cant go wrong with this mouse. It's simply the mouse to beat now. Step aside Razor.++My input was chopped so here it is again++

Pros:This is the most customizable mouse in the entire friggin world! The extras it comes with are in a super sexy padded metal box and comes with 2 rechargeable batteries. Works on almost any surface and those who say it's too complex and to many buttons all should stick with a Mac and prune juice.
Pros Multiple DPI setting
Will fit your hand just how you like it.
Precision aim - you just dont know what you are missing
Cons Very difficult change modes, button too stiff.
Does not work well on most surfaces under initial conditions
Summary The optics of this particular mouse are so sensitive that it registers the smallest movement at the highest DPI setting however it also registers and is confused by even minor reflections at ALL DPI settings. What this means is that the device DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY on nearly all gaming surfaces, some do not even register.
What ends up working best is actually a piece of white paper. Paper makes a terrible surface however has NO reflections so it appears to work better.
If one where to remove the reflection problem from their gaming surface the mouse works FANTASTIC. Here are steps to eliminate reflections from your gaming surface so that you come to love your new mouse instead of wanting to hurl it out the window.Please perform this at your own risk, damage to ones property is of course ones own fault. This work with any gaming surface which is comprised of a hard plastic. Do not attempt with other materials.
Test subject - rocketfish gaming pad (2 sides)
1. Take a GREEN scoth brite pad (NOT A GREY ONE!!!) and lightly press and rub in a circular motion. You want the mouse to see the scratches NOT you so do not press hard. Do this untill the mouse registers the surface properly. Reflection is nolonger a problem however now your surface is full of scratches causing undesired drag on the mouse. The surface is still bad.
2. Tear the metal top off an EMPTY plastic bic lighter, the metal can scratch and ruin your surface.
3. Turn the lighter on its side and press the smooth rounded plastic in a smooth straight motion scross the gaming surface applying a liberal ammount of pressure. Repeat untill you cannot feel any roughness on the surface. If you go to far you may have to use the scotch brite pad again.
The ridges of the added scrathes are now smoothed off so the mouse glides as smoothly as before however the indentations from the scratches are still there so the laser is sufficiently scattered as to prevent reflections.
Hope this helps someone, the materials on most gaming pads are just too reflective for this device.
"Sub-par Laser"on by rveldpau
Pros Nice design, great customization options. solid feeling
Cons Laser stopped working properly. I read another review on this site and it said that it still worked on a white piece of paper, so that's what I'm doing now.
