Great first gaming mouse!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Perixx MX-3000B, Programmable Gaming Laser Mouse - Avago 8200dpi ADNS 9800 Laser Sensor - Omron Micro Switches - 8 Programmable Button - Weight Tuning Cartridge - Ultra Polling 1000HZ - 3D Black Surface (Accessory)
As someone who was used to the smallest microsoft travel mouse, using the perixx was a breath of fresh air. It came well packaged and after I realised I had to have the mouse plugged in when I installed the software (requiring a quick uninstall and reinstall) for it to recognise it, all was well!
I have fairly big hands (being 6 ft 2) and more of a 'claw' grip and this suits me perfectly. The lights on the side of the mouse can be turned off, but so far I can't remove the DPI, however this I don't mind as my hand covers it the majority of the time.
The DPI settings are easy to use, and contrary to some online reviews elsewhere on the web, I find that the DPI buttons don't pose any issue for me, and are pretty hard to press. For normal browsing of the computer, the programmable buttons are brilliant! I have the thumb buttons (not the default DPI ones) set to control media (pause/play, next, previous) and it linked flawlessly with iTunes.
Bang for buck you can't ask for much else. Finding 'your' DPI if you're a first time gamer (like myself) may take a bit of getting used to, but bar that it's perfect. Highly recommend.
