Gigabyte makes high quality PC products and this mouse is no exception. I appreciate the look and operation of the GIGABYTE GM-M5050 Glossy Black Wheeled USB Wired Optical Curvey Mouse. In fact, my only complaint is that the deep ergonomic curves on...

A year later...


I bought this computer to be able to run WOW in high to ultra resolution. After about 3 months I had to start Modifying the graphics capabilities in WOW because it lags and pixelates in raids and dungeons, now. Personally, I think that when you buy a...

Fast start up, reliable, good for WOW and Skyrim, runs word and net in multiple instances, loads of storage, no bloatware to bog it down

Noisy fans, I don't think they were balanced properly, and, yes, I made sure the tower was level. Graphics processor slows down pretty rapidly, despite keeping the computer clean and updated

Bang For The Buck


After doing some research on Newegg this came out to be the best deal on a low end mouse for me when I ordered it. It's probably generally, the best deal for a low end mouse. Newegg got it to me within 3 days, even with super egg saver that normally...

First of all Gigabyte is a good name brand that has been around for a very long time. So even a cheap item like this would get tested and would need to "pass through design inspection" before being brought out. It does the job and works fine. How much...

A light and cheap feel, but its looks and the fact that it works properly over compensate for it. Who can forget 6 bucks with free shipping

Nice Mouse


This is a great mouse. I've have started using this in my computer business because Logitech was getting a little expensive

Verrrrry comfortable, looks nice, and only having 800dpi doesn't even matter, also it's only $8

Maybe the materials are a little on the cheap side

GIGABYTE GM-M5050 Glossy Black 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 800 dpi Curvey Mouse


Works on the oddest of surfaces. Its just a good honest mouse and best of all its cheap


Consumer review by:

Too small for adult hands


The mouse basically works. It would be useful for a young child or an adult with tiny hands

This is the narrowest mouse I've ever seen. Not only is the waist too narrow to hold comfortably, if you're a adult man, but the buttons are too close together to rest three fingers on, one on each button, at once

No real Complaints Here


Good buy. My first Gigabyte mouse. I would buy another.

Nice little Mouse. 2 Buttons and a scroll wheel with button all work. No bad software you sometimes get with after market mice. wired with nice response speeds. Pretty solid for 8 bucks

It doesn't have speakers

Simple, cheap, effective



Needed a new mouse on the cheap and it works perfectly. For those who just need a simple mouse with only three buttons, this is for you. Pretty light weight so it might not feel right to some people, but it works just fine. Need a super cheap, good...
