Steven, Bedford Old skool FPS gamer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent functions - Thumb buttons, scroll wheel movement, DPI adjuster buttons, macro button all work fantastically
Looks quite bad ass
Recharging clip works fantastically.
Adjustable grip plates
Battery life
Bad points:
Designed for large hands only, 22cm diameter+
Awkward design makes for a slow adjustment in comfort to this mouse. It often feels cramped and massive at the same time with your little finger and ring finger fighting for space. After a week or two you will adjust.
Build quality. Mouse top panel is a poor fit on top that allows a large uneven strip of light to penetrate through, highlighting its poor tolerances. Rear "vents" in silver is merely painted on with run lines on where the paint hasn't dried properly leaving a sharp edge. Gap lines generally allow hand sweat to form as gunk and stuck in the mouse.

Steve, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very ergonomic,fits all but the smallest hands.I love the charger,which snaps on the front magnetically.Making charging while using the mouse a pleasant experience.On the fly Dpi settings,in the form of Three well placed buttons along the spine of the mouse,make Gaming a joy for Games where Slowing down mouse movement is essential,ie call of duty where sniping requires a steady aim.Really improved my Kd ratio.Also well placed are the mandatory back forward buttons on the left side.Instead of the usual side by side layout,they are top and bottom,making a much more natural action.All in all I Can highly Recomend this mouse for Gaming,surfing,etc,a great all rounder.The price makes it a no brainer.
Bad points:
If I had to point out the Bad points,my main bugbear,Being That I bought this a Gaming Mouse,is firstly the weight.It's very light,with other gaming mice they have Weights that can be Added to find the ideal setup.Not so with this though,making it feel very insubstantial in the hand.Secondly is the materials,it's plastic and feels like they skimped on the materials used,just feels a bit cheap compared to other mice of this ilk.

KEITH, WOLVERHAMPTON

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
For gamers its wireless with no lag, it tracks on any surface with blue lazer, buttons on mouse
are easily programed with software provided, this is the second one i have bought due to dropping
coffee all over the last one its that good. I bought another one strait away guarante does not include
feeding mouse with coffee lol.
Bad points:
charging system needs a lot of time to fully charge mouse but you can connect charging cable to mouse if battery gets low while in use, i just bought 4 rechargable NIMH batteries and charger so when it runs out of
charge just swop batteries lasts about a week on 1 battery but i game a lot so for normal use should
easily last 3 weeks.
