1 out of 5 eggsProblems on arrival

Pros: Company with high volume of sales, that has excellent customer service.

Cons: Mouse arrived with a damage microswitch (left click) straight out of the box. I have purchased multiple razer products in the past and never had something with problems out of the box. Razer has had a nice level of quality control and I have never had a problem with a product on arrival until this one.

5 out of 5 eggsNOT a palm grip

Pros: FPS mouse - this mouse has seen competitive usage from the amateur to professional FPS scenes, mainly in Quake and the CS titles. unless you're an old-school bad boy who still uses an IM, this mouse will allow you to play to the best of your abilities. "off" setting for mouse acceleration and edge snapping are actually off, there isn't a hidden level of acceleration you have to disable.

quality material and build. will last for more than three years with heavy play (i've had mine going on for five, and it sees use pretty much every day at work and at play)

Cons: had some issues with it during the first month of ownership on the mechanical click (double-clicked instead of single click sometimes), but it happened less and less frequently, so i'll attribute that to "breaking it in".

wheel click starting to get less and less sensitive, but i've had it for hella long time so that's to be expected.

nothing to dock an egg.

the surface scratches off if you apply it to sandpaper (don't ask) or scratch it too hard (don't ask)

Other Thoughts: THIS IS A CLAW GRIP MOUSE. i can't emphasize this enough. don't buy if you want a palm grip mouse. go get the Logitech G400 if you're a palm gripper.

i know razer's site says it's a palm grip, and there are exceptions to what i'm saying, but i encourage you to go feel it up yourself (micro center nearby or a friend who has it, or something) to be sure about it. every pro who uses this mouse uses it as a claw grip; it's used most effectively as a claw grip. i've had plenty of people who try to palm it tell me it's an awful mouse, and (with my limited experience with the palm grip withstanding) i've got to agree with them.

5 out of 5 eggsGood bang for the buck.

Pros: - Very well designed; Feels hefty but doesn't feel like you're holding a brick, either.
- Good grips; This mouse isn't going anywhere unless you make it go.
- Braided cord; This baby should last longer than a normal, rubber coated cord would. At least if you aren't a hellion who's rough on everything.
- Snazzy lights; Everybody loves things that light up! The lit-up scroll wheel and the glowing Razer symbol are a nice touch.

Cons: - None that I can think of off the top of my head.

Other Thoughts: I know that I stated I've only had this mouse for not even a day at the time of writing, but I would easily recommend this mouse to anyone looking to get the bang for the buck.

3 out of 5 eggsOverrated, overmarketed

Pros: Flawless sensor, very functional/comfortable scroll wheel/clicks, solid switches with great feel, build quality is top notch, looks beautiful

Cons: Side grips are 100% useless after 1 day of use (I have semi-sweaty hands, but not over the top). Not good for EVERY grip. Mainly designed for palm grip. Loud switches (not a big con). So heavy that it is hard to comfortably lift (and worthless side grips don't help).

Other Thoughts: The grips texture is too dense, so you're just resting your thumb/ring/pinky on a bunch of little rubber dots that don't even stick out more than .1mm. If they were spaced better, or used a stickier rubber, it would help the mobility of the mouse. Too much stress on my 19cm hand and forearm, compared to lighter mouse with better shape/contour for easy lifting and swiping. If you are going to buy this mouse, you're pretty much paying for the Razer logo and a great 1:1 sensor.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Surprised...Mouse died on first day

Pros: Nice design & feel. I liked the spacing of the side buttons. The lighting was really nice.

Cons: I researched several gaming mice before purchasing this one. I've owned several "Razer" mice/keyboard over the years and have always enjoyed them. The moment I plugged it in and installed the drivers, the mouse would intermittently go off. I re-installed the drivers as recommended online, rebooted my rig and eventually the mouse came back on. Later in the same day it happened again, except I could not get the mouse to come back on. I restarted my rig and several hours later noticed the mouse was working again..... but only for a couple of hours. The last time it went "off", it never came back on. I'm very disappointed because it appears to be a quality item..... but any computer part can arrive "broken" . I'm sure if I replace it, I won't have further issues. However, I felt compelled to share what happened so that you can make an informed decision about buying one.

Other Thoughts: I'm torn whether I should replace this mouse with the same model, but I'm leaning that way. I feel I just got a "bad" one, which can happen with any PC item you buy. I bought a "Blackwidow" Keyboard at the same time and it has been incredible! I'm still a "Razer" supporter....

2 out of 5 eggsGreat shape and worked ok... for a while

Pros: Great feel, worked like a mouse.

Cons: Started the double-click issue so many have had.
High price for what it is.

Other Thoughts: I like the mouse and am looking for one similar but with better quality. gave it a 2 since it worked for about 2 years before the double-click issue started. For the price, it should have lasted longer.

4 out of 5 eggsOverrated, but still good quality

Pros: -Quality materials
-Phenomenal sensor
-Great feedback on ALL clicks (even side buttons, very rare in mice)
-Looks great

Getting adjusted to this new grip (see below for details) is actually a blessing in disguise. I am more accurate when I pinch this mouse with my palm, and my ring and pinky finger are much stiffer and stabler due to the shape of the mouse. I couldn't do this with other mice because it was my preference, but this mouse has forced me into it. Given it's completely new to me, I still don't perform as well as I do with other grips, but for the amount of time I've had it, it's pretty shocking how accurate I am. Give me 3 months, and I'll be gold. Great job Razer, only innovation brings results like these!

Cons: I am a MOBA/FPS player, of above average (pub domination in servers is slightly above average, even a k/d of 10:1, high level means you play with others at the high/est level) skill level. My grip is a claw/fingertip grip, but not purely either. Pretty much I dislike the palm grip. It's a great mouse to hold, but my hands are precisely 7.5"/19cm from base to middle finger tip, which I always thought were fairly medium sized hands, and this mouse just doesn't "fit snug like a glove." It fits well, don't get me wrong, I've held $80 mice that were just shoddy as far as contour goes, 4 stars is still a good product, but seeing as this is the most preferred mouse of all gamers, I have to disagree.

The problem is the back contour. The left side of the back feels great against the back of my palm when I claw grip, but the ride side is slightly too low resulting in a foreign grip. It is as if my mouse shape is like an mirrored h, if you know what I mean. Not rotated to upside down, but mirrored. I have used MI3.0, MX518/G400(S), Copperhead, G3, G700(S), and plenty other mice at cyber cafes that I didn't bother to check because they simply worked well. You really have to pinch this mouse with your palm to get solid contact and still make it comfortable for non palm-grip styles. The thing is, pinching it is pretty much a palm grip, just the palm under the index and middle knuckles isnt touching, whereas only the bottom of your palm should be making contact in a claw.

Now, the thing that was making my shy away from this mouse happens to be my savior. It is the hunch in the middle. With it, I can rest all of my click fingers on it, and have my palm simply sit back and not touch the mouse anywhere (except the left side for the bottom left palm, which is just the perfect length).

I would say this mouse is for small hands, not medium to large, with a pure palm grip. And when I say "for," I mean designed precisely to fit. Claw and fingertip grippers, or people with large hands that do not like palm, go elsewhere, like an EC2/F-K (lol without the hypen it cant be submitted) or a Rival/Sensei.

Other Thoughts: I am hoping this is just because I am not used to this mouse, as I have owned it for under a week. However, when something is reviewed to "fit like a glove," aka a 5 star product, it must be absolutely flawless. This mouse isn't. I havent tried any steelseries or zowie mice, but I think the latter (zowie) produce the most comfortable mice that are best for all grip styles.

I am not hating on this product, it is solid, but don't expect it to be the absolute pinnacle of comfort in a mouse. If it is, I may just have to start designing my own mice shells...

1 out of 5 eggsDouble click

Pros: Good handling and feeling, at least for me.

Cons: This really annoying double click. Started a few months after buying (I bought the 2011 ed.), and it seems that it's a common problem not even resolved with the 2013 ed. Razer, you should fix this instead of changing the color of the LED.
Last time, after a few months of coping with the issue, I just smashed the mouse. It deserved it.

3 out of 5 eggsgood but loud

Pros: nice size even for female hands
lights are nice, not annoying
rubber grip on sides
software lets you adjust the mouse to your needs
mousewheel requires just the right amount of effort to scroll (not too much, not too little)

Cons: loud
software needs updated frequently and makes the mouse act weird sometimes
not sure worth the price
color isn't adjustable from green (but I knew that ahead of time)

Other Thoughts: I've used it every day for 6 months and have not experienced any problems yet. It was on sale for a little less than it is now, but I think it's still a little overpriced, probably because of the brand.
I would rate this at 5 stars if the mouse was alot quieter!
