It's really good, until you bump into problems with it.,
This review is from: Corsair CH-9000022-EU Vengeance M65 Performance FPS 8200 DPI Laser Gaming Mouse - Black (Accessory)
I've had this mouse for a few months now, moving from the Cytek Cyborg R.A.T. 3 CYBORG Mouse - Cyborg R.A.T. 3 Gaming Mouse, and I've enjoyed using it, although I've started noticing some problems that really annoy me. So much that I would not buy again.
At first use I noticed that you couldn't rest my hand on the mouse completely, if you're going to hold it with a palm grip it wont support your hand on the sides, your hand will drag along your surface slightly (even though there is a textured surface on the side, which was very grippy at first), it isn't made to be palmed, apart from that the only problem with the mouse for claw or fingertip grips is that the "precision" button is really slippy and your thumb will consistently fall off.
After a while the textured sides wear down to just a rough surface and become less effective at holding your thumb and fingers in place, although the rest of the mouse remains solid.
The mouse is really sleek and subtle, the aluminium accents that peek out at the front look really good. the LED under the mouse wheel (which you can turn off in software) is really dim, and just picks out the scroll wheel. I find the red glossy sniper button is really distracting and takes away from the overall look of the mouse.
The software is fine if you just want to customize sensitivity and lift height (I set it to lowest setting and found that worked really well, although you could set it higher if you were using it through a surface? although otherwise it doesn't serve much purpose). the customizable macros were not very clear on how to set, but once you understand how it works it's fine, the options for assigning are really limited, (whereas on the R.A.T 3 you could set the buttons to anything on the keyboard or mouse and change its timings and combinations).
The build quality of the body is excellent, it feels really solid in hand. The build quality of the parts is varied this is where critical problems occur: The right, left mouse clicks are light but not so light that you will activate them by resting your hand on the mouse; The forward, back buttons have the same feel as the right, left switches although require a little bit more force; the DPI buttons feel basic and should last if you don't use them too much; the sniper button is a little bit too firm, but not unusable;
[Everything previously has worked without question]
--The biggest problem I have with this mouse is that after a month or two, depending on how often you use it, the middle mouse click becomes completely numb a requires you to push it really hard until the point where you start making accidental button presses on the rest of the mouse and where you need multiple hands to lean on the button. After a couple of weeks it returned back to normal, but recently it has become very hard to press again, to solve this issue I assigned th sniper button to middle mouse click. [I know this isn't a faulty mouse because it turns up as a problem for other people too, I think it is because the middle mouse button is the same as the dpi buttons so it will not last as long]
To summarise, The is a great piece of kit although due to the problems I've had I would not recommend it or buy it a again. Alternatives to consider are mice like the Razer Death adderRazer Deathadder 2013 Ergonomic Gaming Mouse, Shogun Bros ballista mk1Shogun Bros Ballista MK-1 8200 Dpi Pro Gaming Mouse,
