I recently bought a razer lachesis from the local retailer store and so far from how I'm using the mouse , it's horrible. I have medium sized hands , but the mouse grip is a bit too much for me.       I can't grip onto the front panels of the mouse to it's extent. I can't even rest the heel of my palm on the table , which is an aspect I really need for comfortable gaming.

Onto the specs it self. The specs are quite remarkable and outstanding. I can't seem to find anything negative to point out from my week's worth of usage. One thing I dislike about the mouse itself is the right side of the mouse's two buttons. During a game match , I accidentally press one of the two buttons and immediantly , my mouse just freezes and switches from profile 1-5.

 I just want to hear the rest of the forum's opinions on this particular mouse , is it satisfying or pitiful? I'm planning to stick with the Lachesis for another week to double check if it's just the mouse's grip style that I have'nt got used to or if the mouse really has it's own cons.

I tried out the Lachesis at a friends house and while it is nice, I think it is a bit too big and the extra features are not worth the price. I recently purchased a DeathAdder which is a bit smaller and has the profile switch button on the bottom of the mouse. I think it is a better mouse for almost half the price. The "Respawn" version has an upgraded 3.5G DPI sensor and a nice non-tangle cord. Also, Razer just released a left-handed version of this mouse which is great for those of you who like to grip the mouse with you left hand.

Never tried the Lachesis, but i am quite happy with my Logitech MX 518. My hands are medium sized, and all the buttons are perfectly reachable.

im using lachesis and im loving it,  coz it fit my medium hand size for claw grip , which is a common grip for medium sized hand especially for FPS gamer, although its already 2 year old right now , still working fine although I playing game about 5+ hour a day , but maybe its just the age of my lachesis coz the middle button arent responsive anymore (sometime not clicked) and sometine my cursor jumped to top of screen.
