Very disappointed.
-No Lightspeed Wireless
-No Powerplay
-Weight is too heavy
-Scrollwheel too heavy
-DPI buttons should be in the middle to prevent accidental clicks
-Scrollwheel is too big
-Not even worth $80 with small improvement.

It really needs to be wireless with charging capability.

Gamers sure change their stance a lot it was not even 1.5 years ago anything wireless for mouse or keyboards was a big no no everyone said oh that sucks.

I remember saying back then wth guys wireless works just fine it is all in your heads. It seems I was right because now wireless is the new cool factor and the chosen method for my gaming and daily use is considered cool again...yay

So even when wireless goes back to being dissed by everyone in a couple years I will still be enjoying my non tethered gaming experience and laugh at all the guys who are tethered to their computers again...lol

Wow so yes this was a pointless post but hey it is Friday Hail to the Weekend Baby.

Wireless with a wireless charging mousepad fixes the biggest negative with wireless mice. If tracking is on par with USB cable, then why not want wireless?

USB has its own latency problems compared with ps2.
