i like it

 

It works good. I had a $5 MIR that I haven't got back yet, can't beat that, but still worth it if I don't

5 buttons , laser tracking , light and affordable ; Has a good "feel" in games and windows

left button stopped responding after 11 months of very light use. It still clicks but it's not registered by windows. Testet it on several computer with same issue ; Holding both buttons for 3 seconds switches DPI , i found that very annoying ;...

Good mouse

 

I bought this to play starcraft as my browsing mouse is a trackball. I have no complaints!

Very responsive, light, and reliable. Cheap

Good but Cheap

 

I bought this mouse and keyboard K 6800. The keyboard went south after a few months. The mouse followed the same path a short while later. There is not a drop down menu on a right click. I liked the mouse but gigabyte's quality sucks. I'm not even...

Good mouse if it lasts

It did not last

Consumer review by:

good affordable laser mouse

 

Keystroke mapping works in Windows 98 using Microsoft's Intellimouse 4.12 along with a PS/2 / USB adapter. That's extremely useful to be able to remap the extra buttons to keystrokes for old DOS and Windows games.

ergonomic, light (could be con for some people), responsive and cheap

The DPI auto-change by holding both buttons is annoying for some games. I originally thought I hit the button accidently but no, it's actually a function of this mouse

WARNING: Not a gaming mouse - Undocumented feature ruins it

 

This is otherwise a great mouse. If you don't plan on playing video games, by all means go for this mouse. I would've rated this higher if I knew what I was getting into.

Comfortable, switchable DPI, 5-button. Works amazingly unless you play games

Holding both buttons for 3 seconds changes the DPI. This is not self-explanitory, and will mess up your games. Many people think they're accidentally hitting the DPI button. They're not - this is what's happinging

Fantastic for the price. Highly recommend

 

Buy know. Highly recommend. Let's see how long it last. If anything goes wrong i'll be sure to post an update. But i'm a very happy newegg customer as always.

Perfect size. High quality feel better value than my 3 year old logitech mx revolution that cost me over $100 originally. Never thought I could get such a quality mouse for under $25.00. I love the fact that you can adjust DPI. For some reason i'm...

Consumer review by:

Amazing

 

This is overall a great mouse. I love it for the price but I do have one problem. While playing MW2, it tends to switch DPI settings. For example, I have it on the highest and it goes back to the lowest, and vice versa. I thought it was because I move...

DPI Settings ; Wired ; Optical ; Responsive ; Two extra buttons on the left side ; Nice click and scroll

No cons at all

Bad mouse, lazy mouse, bad, lazy mouse!

 

Lesson learnt? a $3 optical mouse worked better than a Gigabyte mouse with high dpi. someone assemblying the mouse at the Gigabyte factory was snoozing.

nice size, high dpi ; i bought the blue model but this is not offered here

worked for about a week of limited use. i debated whether to return it since the return postage would cost nearly as much as the mouse itself. i decided to keep it and try to figure out what to do with it e.g. download the proper driver perhaps,...

horrible cheap mouse

 

Don't get this mouse if you are a gamer, either my hand is disfigured completely or the dpi button IS on the way and gets pressed regardless. It's overpriced, actually, I wouldn't even take it if it was free.

the pros: NONE it's a mouse, that's about it

(in order of appearance) the dpi button would get in the way and I'd change the dpi affecting my precision. The wheel started squeaking and shortly after the wheel-button ceased to work. Shortly after that the first button wouldn't respond anymore. I...
