"A gaming mouse but not a wireless gaming mouse"2.0 starson by Kaykool101
Pros: The mouse is very quick and comfortable to use.
Cons: Wireless is not actually wireless at all.
Summary: I play World of Warcraft and I do so on a gaming laptop. As I play on a laptop my goal is to minimize wires. I alreay have to deal with wires to my cooling device and power cord. Adding a wire for a mouse is not desirable. But I need a wireless mouse that performs. Previously, I was using a Logitech MX Revolution which with set point allowed for great customization of the buttons. However at only 800 dpi the speed was limiting. So when I broke the receiver for the second time I decided it was time to get a gaming wireless mouse.
I have a logitech G500 and it basically performs similar to that. The razer software was not as easy to use, but I imagine if I spent more time with it I would figure it out.
But I won't be spending more time with it. If I wanted a wired gaming mouse I would be just fine with my Logitech G500. And so would any of you that are considering this mouse for wired purposes. I bought the mouse because it was 'wireless' which was compeletly unture.
The wireless option requires that you plug the charging base into your computer. And the charging base has to be connected via the very same wire I was trying to get away from. I didn't get it. I still don't get it. There is no place for this brand of wireless on a laptop and why would you use a wireless gaming mouse on a desk top. I suppose if you use the wired while gaming and the wirless for entertainment, such as watching movie on netflix or something.
At a suggested retail price of 130.00 you shouldn't be having to deal with trade-offs. The mouse is beautiful and performs very well. It fits comfortably in your hand. But so do alot of other gaming mice at lower price points. It doesn't even have some of the expected features of the high end gaming mice, like changable weights and grips. It is most easily compared to mid-priced gaming mice like the logitech G500 or some of the cheaper razers. Without true wireless, it does not offer a single feature that justifies it 130.00 price tag.
They have alot of stats on the packaging about speed and sensitivity. While I am sure they are not lying about its stats, they seem to be unneccsary enhancements as I could not tell an improvement from the G500 or steelseires World of Warcraft mouse (which I also have).
