While it's a god mouse, it's not THAT worth it. Although if all other mice fails, I'll go back to it. appreciate the link.
It's easy to buy off ebay/aliexpress/amazon and it's probably cheaper then most high end gaming mice these days. It's actually quite hard to get a fake cheap one compared to a couple years ago if that is what your worried about. Almost all the chinese sellers now a days are selling modded intellimouse that actually improves from the original. Before I think they would actually MAKE fake ones as in with the fake shell and everything. Now a days they are just repainting it themselves and doing couple modifications to make it better (no more double click issue etc.). Feet replacements are not an issue. Buy from http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Hotline-Games-Microsoft-Intellimouse-Optical-IO1-1-IE-3-Mouse-Feet-2014-/111427911146?var=&hash=item5f8e9d3de9
. It's pretty fast shipping as well and very very reliable seller and probably the best mouse feet for intellimouse. Changing to 500/1000hz literally takes no more then 2 minutes and really shouldn't be an issue at all. I even ****ed it up once after a clean reinstall because I missed some steps but it's so easily fixable that it really shouldn't be a problem at all.
All in all I think it's very worth it if you like the intellimouse. Unless of course you like the aesthetics and or need higher dpi of other mice..
