5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent mouse for the price!, 12 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gigabyte GM-M6800 Dual Lens Contoured Advanced Gaming Mouse (Personal Computers)
Having previously bought the optical version of this mouse (M6800) and being disappointed so much by it that I ended up returning the mouse, I was sceptical about how this mouse would perform.

However I can honestly say this mouse is superb for £10 and A LOT better than the M6800. The buttons are nice to press and the scroll wheel has a nice notched feel to it when you scroll. The DPI button is really useful and lets you cycle through 3 modes: 1600dpi, 800dpi and 400dpi. The mouse is very precise and tracks really well on all 3 modes. Even when moving the mouse really quickly in games, say for a flick shot or quickly turning around, the mouse tracks flawlessly... something that couldn't be said for the M6800 optical version which would send the mouse pointer all over the place when you moved it faster than normal speed.

The M6880 also has a really nice weight to it with the centre of gravity lying right in the middle of the mouse, combining this with a great shape and rubber grips for your thumb and little finger it really is quite a comfortable and easy to hold mouse.

I'd also like to say that I haven't run into any problems that other people have been complaining about such as mouse buttons 4 + 5 not working in games and holding left and right click together changing DPI mode. If you buy this mouse and run into either of those problems, RETURN IT BECAUSE IT IS OBVIOUSLY FAULTY. On the packaging of this mouse it does say M6880 REV. 2.0 (meaning this is revision 2), I suspect that the problems people were having was with revision 1.0 only as I cannot find any fault with this version 2.0.

This mouse is superb and performs like a mouse 2, 3 or even 4 times it's price.

Pros:
5 buttons.
Good shape.
Good weight.
Variable DPI.
Really good sensor.

Cons:
Cheap cable that I can see breaking easily.
Cheap mouse feet that are quite grippy (depends on what mouse surface you are using though).

However I can't complain too much because it is being sold for a great price here on Amazon. Grab a bargain while you can!
