New mouse from HyperX. Buttons seem to be quite crispy and shape is good for me so I probably will try it out.

Here is review:

The dead look in his eyes...
Yeah, that's what happens when you keep earning a living promoting Garbage destined for Land Fill, all around this unfortunate Planet.

At least the holes help provide a home for worms and underground insects to breed in (y) .

looks same like Steelseries honeycombs, and many others lol, i'll just stay with the cheapest 19.99 price honeycomb, and don't look further for clones..

Someone fill me in on why everyone here seems to hate honeycomb mice these days? Last time I was on here they were all the rage and folks were drilling holes into their Zowies.
They're a lazy method of reducing weight. The actual weight loss from external honeycombing is minimal and it gathers dirt or is uncomfortable for many. Mice like the MM710 had **** for brain designers who made the holes massive (though that mouse was a failure on more than one count).
Other companies (Roccat,Razer,Logitech) have already proven you can achieve low weight without external holes, it's mostly just a cop out. I guess if you want to achieve absolute low weight sure but I'd rather have no holes on my hand and weigh 3g more than have a honeycomb design on my metacarpal joints

Don't think that was here.

Hole drilling, I remember my first encounter goes way back to the mid 00s on ESR, and it was always a harsh way of getting a low weight. Nobody really championed the idea as opposed to buying mice that were already low weight (ex. WMO, Kinzu) or could easily get there (ex. G100S) with simple modding.

I don't see what's so inherently bad about holey designs as long as they don't have holes where your thumb rests on the left and ringfinger/pinky on the right. Those get discomforting, like when I tried the one finalmouse that was built like that. The glorious Model 0 is completely comfortable to me as where your fingers rest it is solid. I have an Endgame XM1 en route to me from Newegg now so I am totally not beholden to holes to be lightweight, but I fail to see why that's an instant negative either.

Some people dislike holes but are ok with mushy buttons. That's pretty mind-boggling.

For me personally, I'm not a weight snob who needs something lightweight and immediately wants to buy the next re-logo'd clone. I prefer the uniform feeling of a non-hole mouse in my hand when I grip. Lastly, the mice don't offer me anything substantial over what I already have.

Actual usability reasons over something like aesthetics. Though on their own, they are pretty ugly in my opinion. I'd rather have a spaceship design.
