6-Key Gaming Mouse with Comfort Grip and Adjustable Sensor Rate (800/1200/1600/2400)
Get superior gaming performance with this 6-Key Gaming Mouse with Comfort Grip and Adjustable Sensor Rate from Monoprice!
This right-handed gaming mouse features 6 buttons and adjustable DPI sensitivity (800, 1200, 1600, and 2400 dpi). The buttons include the standard left, right, and wheel buttons, plus forward and back buttons for use with browsers, and the dpi adjustment button. The buttons are each rated for 3 million click cycles.
A green LED illuminates the wheel and another internal LED slowly cycles through the various colors, which show through the pattern in the mouse body. The cord is 58" long. The mouse is compatible with Microsoft® Windows® 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, and Windows 7.
The mouse body is covered in a soft-touch, rubberized coating, which improves both comfort and grip. It measures about 5.0" x 2.6" x 1.5" (128 x 66 x 37 mm) and weighs about 4.5 oz. (127g).

The scroll wheel, on the other hand, is just bad. It was ok for the first few months, and now it's useless, as it jumps back and forth while scrolling, so simple things like browsing the web turn into a big jerky annoyance.
PROS: Solid feel, weighted well, buttons click nicely, scroll wheel is smooth, DPI adjustments are useful, glides very smoothly across my mouse-pad, is very accurate for precision movements, size is good for medium-sized hands, green LED on the scroll wheel matches the thin green trim, Monoprice logo looks sleek and fades through a rainbow of colors, quality construction.
CONS: Only 3 DPI settings (not really a con at this price), top-arch is slightly lower than I'd prefer for extended use (purely preference), LED color cannot be adjusted (but still looks cool, IMHO). Really, the cons are mostly preferential and nothing to do with the quality or construction of the mouse.
PROS: Well for the price
sensitivity and feelings are great
CONS: Leds are annoying
sometime the wheel stay blocked when I press in it
When I received it, I was pleasantly surprised. It glowed, as advertised, and changed colors, but it also had a heft to it which was very nice it wasn't a feather-light mouse such as many inexpensive mice are. It is at least as heavy as my Microsoft mouse. It also has a braided "tail" or lead connecting it to a USB port, suggesting reliability and longevity. So all that is to the advantage of the device.
But what I really, really like about it is the feel of the scroll wheel. It is knurled and make of quasi-soft rubber, and it has a feel to it like indents as you scroll, so you have excellent tactile feedback. It glows, it has heft, it scrolls nicely I was so taken with it that I immediately bought four more, including one to give away to a friend of mine who will also appreciate its "glowing" nature. The price had even dropped by $2 so it was a win all around.
I have no idea how long this mouse will last, but I use it daily so we'll see. As for the six buttons, one of which changes the sensitivity of the mouse movement, I can't really claim that as an appeal. I don't change the sensitivity unless just doing so to try it out (it does work), and the two extra buttons are sort of like lines at the left-hand side, at the thumb, which move you forward or backward. That's how they'd work in a game, I suppose, but I've only tried them on a website, where they act as forward-backward page selections. I didn't get the mice for gaming, I got them just because I liked the feel and the color-changing LED inside (although the scroll wheel stays a steady green).
Since I got four more once I received the first one I ordered, and intend to give one to a friend, it's clear I'd recommend the device. And if they only last a year or so, well, it was fun while it lasted! (That's not to suggest they only last that long, it's just to say it's worth it for as long as they last, however long that may be.)
PROS: *Glows green on scroll wheel and shifts colors on monogram
*Has a solid weighted heft
*Scroll wheel feels fabulous
*Inexpensive for a little fun at the console
CONS: *None, so far
PROS: Price. I've never been one to even consider buying a $200 "gaming" mouse.
Looks. This mouse looks great.
Quality. Hasn't failed me.
Feel. I don't like leaving finger prints on things that are glossy. It makes them seem dirty. The rubberized coating on this mouse is matte and i love it.
CONS: The only thing i would consider a con is that i can't set the logo to a specific color.
PROS: Comfortable, nice clicky buttons
CONS: forward button for should be underneath.
PROS: Great price, looks cool (if you're into looks) works as good or better than any mouse I've ever used.
CONS: None found
Size (Bigger than most mice)
Four Settings for DPI
CONS: Scroll Wheel is sharp
PROS: Value, Ambidextrous shape, sensitivity adjustment, and braided cable
CONS: no true left handed version and button layout is right handed with the back and forward buttons on the left side of the mouse, no lighting control, seriously it would really annoy me to have it cycle through the different colors if my hand wasn't covering it up, it would be nice if it could be set to just stick on one color or just white with no color
The LED looks good and changes color automatically. However I wish I could turn it off (or make it show a specific color).
The biggest draw back is the scroll wheel, it worked for first few month. Now it is a nightmare. When scroll, the page jumps back and forth which made it not usable.
CONS: Scroll wheel stopped working after a few months
Can not turn off LED
