"This mouse will get you killed!!"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It's really hard to play Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter when your shiny new Saitek mouse keeps hanging on you. You've snuck into the shadows, the reticule is poised tantalisingly close to your target, you fire – nothing happens – you can't move – the mouse is no longer talking to the pc – you're dead!

I'm really disappointed with this product – and the net seems to be filled with similarly disappointed reviews…

"Can't say I'm impressed"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I am left handed and although the casing of the mouse is designed for both left and right, the button setup is predominanlty right handed due to 2 buttons on the left which are designed for the R/H thumb and the long button on the right for the R/H small finger. It is difficult to operate the thumb button with the L/H small finger.

There is no Profile Save Feature and each time you play a game, you must deactvate the application, macro and netsearch buttons which are assigned to context sensitive functions or your game will CTD. These must be set to ‘normal function’ so you can configure them within your game.

In summary, I would reccomend this mouse to somone who uses a lot of applications on their desktop, but as a gaming mouse, I'm afraid it truly sucks.

The Saitek 1600 DPI Gaming mouse is designed specifically to offer gamers additional features which will improve the way they play games. The smooth, contoured design is ideal for left- and right- handed gamers and fits hands perfectly for fatigue-free gaming.

As well as the left and right buttons and scroll wheel found on most PC mice, the Saitek PC Gaming mouse features additional buttons which increase mouse functionality in both office and gaming environments: A "Turbo" button switches between 800 or 1600dpi resolution for ultra fast and highly accurate mouse tracking; Teflon feet give smooth, resistance-free movement; programmable hotkeys mean in-game commands normally reserved for keyboard buttons can be accessed directly from the mouse, improving gameplay; and additional software for configuring mouse controls allows different functions to be assigned to buttons or the scroll wheel.

For non gaming use, the Gaming Mouse's additional buttons open function wheels to trigger preset macros where user-programmed keystroke sequences can be activated or MS Office applications opened with a single mouse button press.
