Great gaming mouse!


Its a great mouse for the price. i haven't had any trouble with it!

Fits my large hands. solid buttons, smooth movement


Consumer review by:

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...

Affordable gaming mouse that you will not beat for the price! Plus the software for the macros is super easy to use

none so far

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

Quit after a week.


I've owned a Logitech G5 for several years and never had a single issue. I decided give Gigabyte a try. That was a bad decision. I should have stayed with Logitech, the known quantity.

Looks and feels nice. Tracking is smooth and precise

Quit after one week of use. After plugging it in to several computers I get a "USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED" message almost immediately

Quality issues


For $40, I'd expect a mouse that can left click without issues. I guess I was wrong. RMA'd.

Lightweight mouse without 50,000 buttons

Quality issues --- the left mouse button doesn't always register. If you hold it down gently, it will click/unclick on its own. A mouse that can't click reliably is as good as garbage ; Both left and right buttons have a very cheap/light plastic-y...

Yeah buddy!


Got this for the boss mans 3500$ pc and he likes it! Paired this mouse with the Microsoft Natural 4000 wired keyboard and your in for a treat.

Feel is nice ; Has some weight to it ; 3 different levels of dpi ; Programmable modes change mouse colors ; Better than "all" Best Buy razor mice

None so far
