    Normally my hands fits Steel Series mice but this one strains my fingers. This probably fit someone with longer fingers…I don’t have longer fingers but my palms are large when buying gloves. So the next day I purchase the Logitech Superlight G Pro X, which fits my fingers better.

    This mouse is NOT worth the $$. I paid WAY more for this than a simple Amazon Basics mouse, but I also use 8 times the batteries. At least 2 AAA batteries per week to keep this POS going. It claims 400+ hours of battery life, that is complete BS. It has a harder “click” as well…. I HATE THIS MOUSE! I would rather buy an amazon mouse at $14.00 twice a year than use this. DEEP REGRET!

  3. Samantha Tallant

    I’m obsessed. This mouse is so comfortable and easy to use. Easy to hook up, and i love being able to adjust the colors!

    I have been a long time Logitech fan. I have their keyboards, their mice… and then about 7-8 years ago Logitechs quality went downhill. So, last year alone, I returned 2 x $149 LightSpeed Logitech Mice back to the supplier that didn’t even last ONE year! Previous years with Logitech their mice would last 1-3 years and then would start double clicking, or not working, or sometimes clicking, or the scroll wheel would not work perfectly…

    So, I was getting tired of spending over $700-$800 on Logitech mice and thought… Hmmm… what else has decent reviews and looks good quality?

    SteelSeries does…

    So, I bought a few of these mice. So far, no problems but it’s only been about a year now since my first mouse purchase from this company. All mice currently working perfect. I will update this review when if things start breaking down. If they last 3-5 years I will be happy. I program all the time, and am on a PC most of my life… but, the really old Logitech mice used to last 10+ years… now, I can’t trust Logitech anymore…

    Steel Series is the winner lately (so far). 🙂

    Great RGB! Decent mouse, feels decent quality. All buttons and mouse wheel works. Software is decent as well.

    Perfect fit for hand. Very sensitive to movement but has adjustable setting to slow movement if needed. Highly recommend.

  6. Brian Couto

    After a month the left click lost its spring back.

    Cheap plastic.

    Go with another company

    UPDATE: So my warranty claim has been denied because I dared to use compressed air to see if there was anything stuck in the crevice. What customer service! Opened the darn thing up because what the heck, I am curious… the plastic nub on the left click was worn down like I had been using it for years… What quality!

    Also I bought a Corsair Harpoon which I am very happy with so far.

    Mouse arrived today and setup with my Surface Pro 8 was easy.

    Packaging: Mouse and packaging arrived in perfect condition. Two Triple-A batteries were also included.

    Quality: The overall quality of the mouse is a glossy matte black finish which looks very looks good in my opinion.

    Battery Life: I will update this review in 6 months with a battery report.

    Overall thoughts: This mouse is a nice addition to my minimal travel setup. It also comes equipped with a USB DONGLE for 2.4 connection option. I personally won’t be using it but good to know its an option.

    I use this mouse for gaming and work and it is the best budget mouse for its durability. the dpi switch did fall inside but it doesn’t rattle and works fine for what i use it for.

  9. Joseph Joestar🥸

    Amazon asked me about battery life. This is not applicable. This is a usb wired mouse with no wireless/battery capabilities.

    -The range of dpi customization is helpful, and the ability to instantly switch between two presets (via the tiny button on top behind the scroll wheel) was a welcome surprise
    -Scroll wheel makes precise and easy to count jumps instead of rolling smoothly, which is good for gaming
    -rgb is highly customizable
    -base glides smoothly even without a deskpad
    -$30 price is fair. I got an open box unit for $15 and felt like I stole it. Price/performance is the best I could find.

    -Nearly every single time I turn on my gaming computer (once every 2-3 days) there is a new ‘critical firmware update.’ Only takes a minute but is annoying that SteelSeries can’t get it together in this department. I’ve never had to update a mouse before, and certainly not multiple times a week. One star off for this.

    I went from a £14 mouse to this and I’m never looking back, il probably use this line for a very long time, extremely comfortable, plenty of button mapping options and easy to adjust the sensitivity at the push of a button

    A mi hijo le encanta.

  12. Kimberly Finchum

    Exactly as described. I really like this brand. Bought the wires for my son and he wanted the wireless for a Christmas Present. He loved the ease of the mouse and it’s easy and fast set up. Will definitely continue to buy this brand. Hasn’t disappointed yet

    Bought this for the kids that wanted me to make them a basic gaming rig. For the $20 I paid I can not complain and thinks its a pretty solid mouse. It has some cool RGB lights to help bling out the PC so the kids are happy and seems to function perfectly as a mouse so not issues with this item. I would recommend if you want a basic mouse that lights up for some color.
