Is the 2 button (X, Y) on left side on it, adjustible? As i understood good, normaly they made for adjust dpi for X, Y coordinates, but can i use macro on them? I mean to put some other functionality for them?

I have yet to find a mouse as comfortable as the old logitech G7,still using it after 4 or 5 years.I just wish more manfactures would make mice with the left thunb button's above each other instead of one behind the other.
tried:
G700-to high at the rear
MS x-8,clunky/poor feel
logitech G9-x,better.
logitch G5-good mouse
G500,sucks.

Now i have been curious on the rat mice,comments if u have them?

Oh! and rodney,any reviews comming up on roccat products?I just bought the Kave headset,awesome sound/quality.

Information about stiffness of the buttons and the scrollwheel, as well as weight of the mouse would be nice.

The 2 buttons on the left click are very odd to use . I have a naga whcih pretty much has these as well .
Also so long you have a relative small to medium size hand and you play mmo or anything with alot of keybinds(Wonderful for work environment) then the naga is hands down one of the best mice .

For big hands well... you guys are out of luck , cause all MMO mice have small profile... To be fair only Razer and steelseries and maybe trust has mice for bigger hands....

Are mice mostly of the same fidelity or would possibly some mice be better when used in a first person shooter game?

This mouse is intended for MMORPG / RTS games, but certainly can use it for FPS. If you want the best, you'll have to go with name brand, but this mouse is more than enough for any FPS.

I love the review , but when considering gaming mice, LASER mice are inferior compared to OPTICAL-LASER mice. The tracking is much worse at high speeds when using a laser mice, on top of that your limited on most surfaces. Try swiping the mouse at a high speed and it will skip all over the place.

OK I'm sold! I love the size. Hate those thin skinny mice that are hard and uncomfortable to hold sand control. I am sold be the appereance, specifications and price. I especially am curiously waiting to see if indeed it is 1ms faster time response. That is my main reason for changing from my G9X. It seems the response is that 1ms behind certain other players and caused alot of uncalled for deaths.
I will be using this strictly for FPS gaming, though the specs state MMO and RPS. I will not be using the macro, nor do I use it with my present mouse.
My only skepticisim is about the build quality and if (I hope) there is an option on the program such as is on the G9X, to enable angle snapping. VERY important to keep the horizontal plane linear while moving side to side. This might be a deal breaker. Realistically, I doubt it since it is not intended for FPS and the RTS games would make little difference as to the stable horizontal linearty. (moving mouse from side to side would result in a straight line.)
Finally, I can't wait to see it on the shelves and possibly purchase, either online (preferably direct from mfg.)
I play Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, Mass Effect 3, X-Plane 9 and 10, DCS AC-10, and hundred others.
Very high end self built computer, want only the ultimate everything, price not a problem.

Looks like a mouse I'd have to try before I would buy.

Oh no it's them monkeys at work again! The server cache files sometimes mess up, but a simple refresh should make the errors go away. I've added Premchand to the Spam Whitelist, maybe that will help. :)

Don't test my skills, I was trained by myself! Check out my Gaming Videos!

Interesting. For me at least, this is the first mouse with adjustable weight. For size, i've seen quite a lot of them but not weight. That's very nice. A lot of mine never had a nice solid feel to them. They felt like empty plastic

How is the scroll on this ? Some mice its really to light to scroll(kuch logitech.. kuch), i like it so its not 'easy' to scroll twice up/down when you intend to go one up/down. this can and will be really annoying with selecting a weapon in FPS games

Really don't like the look of it, blue led in the scroll wheel is nice though

lol what happend here 3x :s

Something really weird going on here when i clicked like it showed me this message,

"500 Internal Server Error
Sorry, something went wrong.

A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation."

monkeys ? lmao

Scroll is typical, so fairly easy.
