Creative's Fatal1ty 1010 Mouse reviewed


Do you think that when he's old and gray, eyes glazed over and hands clenched in an arthritic claw, Jonathan Wendel will sit his grandchildren on his lap and regale them with tales of his days as the great "Fatal1ty"? Or will he keep his 1337-inspired...

Creative Fatal1ty 1010 mouse review


Creative Fatal1ty 1010 mouse

Comfortable feel; interchangeable weights; responsive tracking; easily adjustable sensitivity; neat color-changing light on sensitivity switch.

Difficult-to-press thumb button; oversensitive third-finger button; very short cord.

The Creative Fatal1ty 1010 has useful features such as swappable weights and adjustable sensitivity levels, but subtle design flaws keep it from becoming our favorite.

Creative Fatal1ty 1010 Mouse


A superb, intricately designed mouse for the serious gamer.

Great design ; Sensitivity can be modified on the fly ; Lots of customisable buttons ; Selectable weights

Relatively expensive ; Right-handers only ; Benefits only noticeable to hardcore gamers

This problem started a few months after I bought if from a store. I didn't keep my receipt. Now Creative will not give me an RMA b/c I can't prove I bought it. You would think a $40+ mouse would work well. But then making the RMA of it a PINA is just...

nice to be able to control the dpi with a button ; weights are neat but never really swap them ; umm you don't have to clean its ball

left clicks started to register as double clicks. now they just fail to register at all. mouse is totally busted ; the size is kinda small I think it was built for elven people

Mixed Feelings and Some Anger


I rated this 'Average' because that's what it is. I would price this mouse at $15, no more. I really wish it were better because it has a good shape and a good outline. The drivers also are very poor (don't install them and use the WinXP default...

I really like this mouse's shape, button configuration, and overall concept. The optical engine itself is accurate (after upping the USB polling rate to 250Mhz min.). DPI adjustability is handy. The adjustable weight system also adds some benefits,...

While the concept of the mouse is good, the execution I've found to be severely lacking. Most notably, I began experiencing The "double-click" issue mentioned in other reviews after about 90 days. I could remove the weights, bang, twist, jimmy, and...

Creative warranty is poor $25 min to fix the mouse. Buyer beware. I had some good times with the mouse though, but only for 10 months. Going back to logitech now.

comfortable for my grip style, nice extra buttons, easy dpi change on the fly

poor integration of software with programs. I could only get the other mouse buttons to work in BF2, BF2142, and now Quake Wars ; Right mouse button is dead after 10 months of use

For the low price ..this is a great deal. Newegg ROCKS!!!

It looks like a mouse

This thing is a truly awful. From the construction where you can add 3 different sized weights that click but don't lock in and will inevitably fall out and roll to the most difficult to reach spot in the room. the left mouse button will alternatively...

Stay away, unless it's free


I got this mouse free after rebate, if you paid more than that you got ripped off. If you have one of these I suggest RMAing it over and over again to teach Creative a lesson: not to sell utter trash to customers. If you complain enough supposedly...

None. Honestly

Within a month or two of getting this mouse the left button stopped working correctly. You click it once and it either double clicks or doesn't click it all. It's a known design flaw that almost everyone is experiencing and Creative insists it doesn't...
