Buttons are programmable!,
This review is from: Anker® C200 Full-Size Ergonomic Wireless Mouse with 6 Buttons, 3 DPI Adjustment Levels and 2000 DPI (Black) (Personal Computers)
I've been limping on with an aging logitech with a broken wheel for some time and finally replaced it with this mouse. I'm very impressed at the price - I'm a VFX student so I have two criteria: is it cheap? Does it perform well? This ticks both boxes. Well done Anker!
I've already given it a runaround in 3D apps etc, does everything I need it to and its wheel works! Great! Love the dpi button on the top - make sure you switch it up to 2000dpi to get the full sensitivity offered. NOTE - to tell which dpi setting it is on see how many times the button flashes - 1 flash for 1000 dpi, 2 for 1500 and 3 for 2000 dpi.
Other reviewers have stated none of the buttons are programmable, which isn't the case, you can download the drivers here:
This makes the forward and back buttons fully programmable which is really cool (I have them set them to cut and paste currently).
My only criticism would be that perhaps Anker should provide a little guide leaflet in the box so that all users understand what the buttons do and where to get the drivers from. (Looking at other reviews I think a lot of people are rating the mouse poorly because they haven't got it set to a high enough dpi etc) I'm a curious guy so I rammed all the buttons until I figured out what they all do, whereas other users may find it confusing so a simple leaflet would probably help there.
Anker seems to be great, I see their customer support is all over this page which is awesome - if Anker reads this, can you make a USB heated mouse? I always wanted one for winter, I'd buy it, student houses are cold :P

Thanks for the super tip about downloading the driver and being able to programme buttons 4 and 5. I have also gone for cut and paste.
