Just upgraded to this mouse from a standard mouse and while the RGB lighting is good, I find that the red LED isn't as pigmented as I had hoped. It's more on the hot pink side, which doesn't bother me too much. Wire isn't braided, but the plastic wire isn't stiff, doesn't drag at all. The logitech hub software is easy to use, and the scroll wheel is very smooth and quiet, doesn't have the clicky sound. The only issue that I have with mine is the right mouse button is very sensitive, so sometimes when I'm just resting my hand on the mouse I end up accidentally clicking the right mouse button. Not sure if it's designed this way or a fault, but the difference between the left and right button is very apparent.
