    The mouse shape looks comfortable from the pictures. that software design is so cluttered looking however. its like an alienware design interface system

    I just bought another IKARI after finding one on a store. the kai is not so good. This looks pretty good, never seen them stocked locally, and I never buy a mouse online without putting my hand on it first. only way to tell if it will work.

    Looks like a decent buy for the price, but so many options now it would be hard to pick this over say a steel series or razer

    Almost bought this weeks ago but opted for a Logitech as it’s too risky without using it first hand
