It's simply awesome and very responsive.
With the 4HD it's incredibly precise.
People say things about the software but for me it worked very well.
Purchase one from bestbuy, as it is currently on sale:
The shape is very nice in my hand.
It is capable of a few macros with the side buttons.
It has a high DPI of 5000, if you're into counting DPI.
It uses the best sensor on the market.
It's got cool feet to provide a smooth experience.
It's ambidextrous, but I had no problem at all adjusting to it after switching from a right-handed mouse.
The software offers fine tuning of CPI (DPI) up to 5001 and Polling rate (hz) up to 1000mhz (960hz recommended for 60hz monitors).
It is half off from best buy, which is awesome. I bought mine there.
It's much better than the G5 I have.
If you don't have a good mouse with a hard surface mouse pad, I highly recommend this mouse.
For about $55 after taxes, you can get this mouse with a 2 year warranty from best buy, in case the sensor goes bad or something.
SteelSeries offers replaceable feet but I'm not sure if I'll be needing them any time soon.
It has an anti-tangle braided cord, which is much better for me than my Logitech G5 was. The damn thing's tangly cord was the reason I bought this new mouse.
Definitely jump on this deal while you still can.
I hear about more frequent occurrences of issues from the Roccat Kone, so I wouldn't buy that... and the G9x and Mamba are a bit more expensive.
A lot of people who have tried several mice agree that this one is better, but there are some that don't. If you don't own any of those high-end mice, this should be your new high-end mouse.
From what I hear, the G9x, SteelSeries Xai, Roccat Kone, Mamba, and I think maybe the CM Storm Sentinel all use this same sensor (or at least similar ones).
They're all high end mice, but I like the feedback on this one. It also has some cool awards for best PC mouse and best PC peripheral for '09 and '10.Edited by games2007 - 12/29/10 at 2:09am
