    INTRO:
    I’ve owned this mouse for over three years and have never been gentle with it. It’s gone overseas stuffed in a backpack, been used as a makeshift pillow (on those late night gaming sessions where the body quits before the will…), been stepped on, dropped, left in the sun, left in the cold, and has even had an accidental steam spa session in a hotel bathroom. Now it spends its days shoved in a backpack to and from my university.

    Like I said, it’s never been treated gently. And yet, it’s going strong. It’s as responsive as the day I got it (there is zero input lag and anybody who tells you differently needs to review the he response rate of the human nervous system, which is slower than this mouse), the lettering hasn’t worn off at all, and everything is in perfect working order. This mouse was a good purchase.

    FEATURES:
    Ergonomics: This mouse is comfortable and really holds your hand well. My girlfriend often attempts to The side buttons are easily distinguished from one another and are comfortable to use.

    Adjustable DPI: The adjustable DPI buttons are often useful for gaming. As an example, when playing Overwatch I’ll set my DPI rather high when using Junkrat but drop it nice and low for Widowmaker. Or, while playing the Witcher 3, I’ll adjust my DPI on the fly if I’m fighting, going through conversation options, or navigating my inventory.

    Battery Life: I change the batteries on this little guy a few times a year. I can’t even tell you how long they last because it’s too long to track; it’s just not something I ever think about. Logitech bundles the mouse with optional software that will tell you when your battery life is low, as well. It’s worth noting here that I [mostly] turn the mouse off when not in use. The mouse is equipped with an energy saving mode that I never use unless my battery begins to die.

    Sensor: This mouse can be used on MOST surfaces, with very few exceptions. First, the surface must be flat. Dips or bumps will affect tracking. Second, it can’t be wet. Moisture can affect the senor. Besides that, I’ve yet to find a surface the mouse struggles with. I’ve even used it on fabric furniture arms for gaming, which wasn’t ideal due to drag… but the mouse tracked perfectly nonetheless. I’d be interested to know if anyone else has–if you’ve had issues, leave me a comment. I’m curious.

    Performance: The mouse has a listed response rate of 2ms. Despite the assertions of many hardcore gamers, they cannot detect lag from a device like this; a wireless mouse is absolutely adequate for gaming. The average human brain has a response ceiling at around 12ms, so claiming one can detect input lag on a 2ms mouse is ludicrous.

    CONCLUSION: If you want a SOLID gaming mouse that is comfortable, durable, and versatile, that combines outstanding battery life and game-ready performance, I recommend you consider this device. It has never let me down despite the abuse I’ve leveled against it and I continue to use it to this day. I’ve had several friends buy them after playing a bit on mine, even when the price ranged between $50-$70. Now at only $40 it’s a no-brainer.

    Photography is my career, it’s how I make my living. While this is a gaming mouse, I became interested in it because several trusted professional photographic sources listed it as one of the best choices for photo editing and retouching. They also addressed the most obvious question why not use a graphics tablet. I do but like so many other photographers I don’t always find a graphics tablet natural or intuitive to use for certain tasks.

    WHAT TO LOOK FOR

    Gaming mice have at least two features that can make them a good choice for photo editing. One is precision, have you ever tried to draw a circle with a mouse? Drawing a circle freehand isn’t easy anyway but it’s a good test if a pointing device can move with precision. This one is one of the best I’ve tried for being able to move it precisely. One of the other top characteristics a mouse needs is low lag, which also happens to be a key feature for gamers. The cheap wired mouse that came with my computer has less lag than any wireless mouse I’ve owned. This one is impressive, it doesn’t need to “wake up” when you start to move it. Having multiple macro buttons is an advantage as well, although not a necessity.

    WHY LOGITECH

    Or I should say why not Logitech. I’ve owned at least 10 Logitech mice and have a love/hate relationship with them. They generally feel the best physically in-hand and have a solid construction. But they are legend for not lasting long and some of the most rock bottom customer support I’ve ever encountered, and of course being expensive. I fought getting this one but switching brands wasn’t working out for me either (I’ve bought 5 mice just this year). The only reason I gave in is for whatever reason they had it priced down with the cheapies so if I didn’t like it I wouldn’t be out much.

    DOES IT WORK

    How well it works is subjective. I understand that the typical person reading this is more likely to be a gamer and I’m not one, my entire evaluation is based on how well it works for photo editing. As mentioned it feels good in the hand, neither too small nor too large. The shape of the lip on the left side gives it a good sense of control and the shape of the L/R buttons helps reduce one of the most common issues of accidentally pressing them. That lip actually serves two purposes, one is to use my thumb to vary the amount of downward pressure on the mouse which can be very helpful in keeping it from skidding when I’m making very tiny moves. The other is that using that same thumb I can lift up on the mouse to reposition it, which is almost impossible with any mouse that’s shaped like a beetle – I have one mouse that falls out of my hand whenever I try to lift it.

    Being able to change resolutions instantly is a big plus for editing tasks and I find I am doing just that several times while working on a project. While researching pro photographers preferences I also found that the SteelSeries mouse pad SteelSeries QcK Mini Gaming Mouse Pad was one of the top choices so I got one at the same time, and it’s true, a mousepad makes a lot of difference and this one works perfectly for smooth precision tracking and minimizing lag. It’s available in several large sizes, a benefit for graphics work.

    I can’t think of any downsides yet. I’ll keep my expectations low of it lasting more than a year but if it does I’ll be happy.

    This is my first wireless gaming mouse. I mean, I used wireless mouse before, but not a professional wireless gaming mouse. I am in love with it. It is more convenient than wired mouse. But it is comparable with my wired gaming mouse in the weight and responsiveness, long battery life. I cannot think of one weak point of this mouse. For better gaming experience, I bought myself a mechanical gaming keyboard.Gaming Keyboard, UtechSmart Mercury Full Color RGB Backlit Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. You will never go back to an ordinary keyboard once you tried this one. A real RGB mechanical gaming keyboard, very comfortable and beautiful backlit. I love the sound of typing on it, feels so good!
