Bad: macro button doesn't work without cable and charge cable breaks easily.
Comment: Macro button doesn't work without cable and charge cable breaks easily, but is the best mouse I have owned.
Good: on the fly, dpi buttons are perfect for fps game when u need that extra bit of accuracy(mostly sniping) and the interchangeable feet are a brilliant idea, i play on a wooden surface so the standard feet gripped too much, so i swapped them out to the grey ones, and hey presto.
Bad: no matter what computer i use the mouse on there seems to be a delay on the left and right mouse wheel clicks. this only happens when they haven't been clicked for around 30 mins, so not a massive problem, and you cant really call it a wireless mouse, especially if the battery warning light comes on after an hours use.
Comment: all in all a great mouse, comfortable on the hand, and works anywhere. LCD display shows what the current dpi is set to and also, when the battery is going low. macro button is simple to use and works like a charm.
