Pros:

  • Very lightweight.
  • Reasonable price.
  • Decent sensor.
  • Modular software design.

Cons:

  • Poor quality side buttons.
  • Slippery finish.
  • Underside DPI switch placement.

KitGuru says:  This is a decent mouse for the price. It feels fast and fluid and would be well suited to FPS titles. The build quality is good for the most part but is let down by poor quality side buttons. Overall, this would be a good option for new and veteran gamers alike who are looking for a decent mouse without spending the earth.
