  • Very ergonomic.- Adjustable scroll wheel.- Side buttons are clicky (just how I like them).- Modular DPI clutch.- Sexy Chroma lighting
  • I had a Logitech MX Master, and compared to that:+adjustable DPI, on the mouse, via a rocker button, that's pretty handy actually+'clutch' to release that DPI setting, so the mouse goes nice and slow for detailed work- the Logitech has a nice free spinning wheel for fast scrolling up and down a browser page.- Logitech has slightly better ergonomics for my big hand
  • I was worried that the adjustable scroll wheel would make it feel cheap or rattle but fortunately, it doesn't

Reviews around sensor (5.00 of 5)

  • The mechanical buttons are very tactile in their mechanism and always give a great feed back for a good sounding click, the sensor is very good and I can't even get it to spin out and lose itself when I swipe the mouse across.
  • The sensor is excellent, almost all high end mice now have flawless sensors
  • One might think this indicates some amount of sensor jitter, but in game performance and analysis has deemed this sensor terrific and consistent
  • I'm a long time user of Razer, Roccat, and Logitech and I always seem to rebound to Razer that can maintain perfect sensor accuracy and durability for years
  • Definitely has a great sensor as Razers most current mouse.

  • It has a nice weight, and the adjustable resistance is a nice feature
  • I don't adjust my DPI much, but if you are the type of gamer that frequently changes DPI depending on which game you are playing, the paddles seem like they would be a nice feature.
  • Another nice feature is that it will sync with the Philips hue system
  • I experimented with changing the DPI on the fly, which is a nice feature, but not something I noticed too much in the type of game I play

Reviews around time (1.57 of 5)

  • I really like the thumb switch, buttons feel good, not to loud
  • And the software itself is buggy, frequently resetting all the preferences, or failing to work at all after an upgrade (poorly timed upgrades too)
  • The response time on the mouse & great, and I don't have any trouble building roller
  • So far, the app has crashed multiple times just trying to use its core functionality, the sensitivity buttons on the top have stopped working and it's forgotten about my profile until I rebooted, and the color scheme has a mind of its own
  • It has hard crashed about 20 times within the first week of owning this mouse, often mid-game
