worst mouse ever


I won't buy another Gigabyte product after this anymore, and I loved their main boards for building my own computers. I ended up buying a $20 Logitech keyboard/mouse combo and that mouse works so much better that I've been using it the past year plus.


Absolute worst mouse I have ever owned. The mouse "jumps" around on the screen and is so inaccurate that it can't be used for anything of consequence. I've tried using it both with my Mac and my Windows Laptop and it has the same problem on both. It's...

Gigabyte laser mouse


This will turn into a backup as soon as i get my new mouse. I wish I would have went with my gut and got the optical version.

The lights are nice ; All the buttons work good

The lights are always fading in and out. Too bad they arent steady ; The sensor does not work very well on almost any surface for me. My cursor jumps around a lot

Stopped working


Great while it lasted

It just stopped wanting to move the cursor after awhile. You would be better off spending the extra money on a product that works as intended

Great Mouse, Okay Software


Overall, I love the mouse; I just wish the Ghost software was better.

Very comfortable fit for my large hands ; Love the gripping on the sides ; The non-slick coating is a huge bonus and leaves a great texture

The Ghost software for the mouse could be better. The UI is ugly and dated (think Doom-era games), and the copy/paste functions don't work properly under certain circumstances ; I use this mouse at work where I'm a graphic designer and the copy/paste...

Great mouse, some linux issues.


I bought this mouse as a replacement for the now unavailable MX518. It does the job admirably. It feels very smooth and works as well for twitch FPS gaming as it does for general desktop and image editing tasks. The mouse is light, but it does not feel...

The only downside to this mouse is the annoyingly bright LEDs that constantly blinks in an attention grabbing manner. The software drivers that come with the mouse do not work on linux. So if you're a linux user you'll not be able to turn off the...

Great... except for scroll wheel...


I'll be contacting Gigabyte and/or Newegg about the issue.

Comfortable feel, high DPI capabilities, great macro capabilities

Forward/backward scroll wheel not working. Works great left/right, but not at all for forward & back. I tried it on two different computers and multiple USB ports -- the problem persisted. Guessing there's a hardware fault
