Recently my Microsoft Wireless Mouse had been crapping out on me every-so-often and the feet had begun to wear away from 3+ years of use so I thought it was time to upgrade. After looking around and talking to people I decided that I wanted a wired mouse as it is much less hassle than having a wireless mouse - Especially when batteries die in the middle of a gaming session or in mid flow while editing. I tried out many, many mice in lots of shops so I could get a feel for them in my hand but most of them felt too small (I have quite large hands) until I came to this one. It fills my palm perfectly, the left and right click are angled slightly and give great tactile feedback. The side buttons also have a great 'clicky' feel to them unlike a lot of other mice that I tried where you couldn't really tell if you were pressing them or not. However the thing I most liked was the scroll wheel. Defined notches for accurate scrolling, great for gaming, some editing applications and many other things. The high quality braided cable, gold plated USB connection and blue lights are just perks to an already awesome mouse in my opinion. The new Synapse software is great too, allowing a lot of control over the modification of your mouse, letting you use it how you want to use it!
If you are looking at getting a mouse and you want it to be comfortable for long periods of time, great to use, look amazing and not be ridiculously overpriced, then you have found your mouse right here!
Also as a side note, for anyone planning on using this on a Mac to get the back and forward functions to work for the side keys; open up the synapse software with the mouse connected, go to the Macro tab and make two - one pressing CMD+Left Arrow (for Back) and one pressing CMD+Right arrow (for forwards), I set the timing interval to 0, then go back tot he mouse and assign the buttons their respective Macro that you just made! Enjoy!
