Not sure what their keyboards and mice are like but they're well respected for their motherboards.

I've got a Razer gaming mouse and even though I don't do too much gaming with it any more it's still worth having as it's a far superior smooth and accurate mouse to standard ones.

looks good!

That manufacturer's description is in Japanese English. Awful grammar and the fact they're busting a gut trying to convince us that this is the best mouse we've ever seen. Honestly, these companies could at least hire an English person with knowledge of proper grammar. It would make them look so much more professional.

Bought one of these myself from Play a few weeks back at the same price after my previous mouse experienced some minor stress fractures....:whistling:

You can get Quidco as well on it.

Overall I'm very pleased with the mouse, very ergonomic so no hand-cramps after hours of COD4 & the ability to switch DPI at the push of a button is great. Feels well-built as well, so should last a bit longer than my previous mouse...damn spawn-campers :roll:

Only downside for me is that after hours of searching the net I can't find any software for it, would have been handy to customize buttons etc.

Want to surfing the web?

Edit: I have actually bought one despite the Engrish because I've been using the same mouse for over 2 years and this one does have consistently good reviews.

My I be the first to say...Eh? :?

Edit: Agree with you Doberman, I bought it after reading many favourable reviews, & for £6.99 you'd be hard-pressed to find a better mouse.

I'm sure I read somewhere Gigabyte mice and peripherials are made by the same people who make stuff for trust.

Which is good as Trust make nice items.

I was thinking of getting a razor, but there like £50 aren't they?

Might get a cheap one for the girl though, this looks alright, though why would you want to adjust DPI?? Surely more precision all the time is better.
#14
Is the mouse a ball one (Do they still make them?) or a optical one.

Would both of these be fine for everyday computer use. My current mouse needs new batteries every week it seems but I like the optical cord mouse. Also my current keyboard it is like pressing a typewriting when typing on it.

Cheers.

It says there's dual lens optical technology.

Was planning on buying either a Logitech MX400 or G5 soon, wonder whether I should save some beans and go for this instead.. :?
#17
is the scroll wheel a single click scroll or a continuous free scroll like the microsoft one?

Yeah ive got a Razor and it cost me in excess of £50, but it is a fantastic mouse wouldnt change it now. The changing of DPI meant the sensitivity will change , the acccuratcy will stay the same just how reactive it is changes, for example sniping low sensisitivy then running around with a MP5 on counterstrike you want quick movements.

At this price for what will still be a very decent mouse, its a steal. Good Find voted hot.

wished they make them for left-handed as well.

Received mine today. Never bought a gaming mouse before so can't compare it to anything other than standard optical mice I've used previously.

Overall though, I'm impressed, particularly at the price I paid. The action of the buttons is smooth and the scroll wheel - although it's vertical scroll only - gives noticeable but not annoying notch-by-notch feedback.

DPI button works immediately without the need for any additional software, and the cable is a good length. It's perhaps not quite as ergonomic as it could be, and it doesn't fit that snugly into the crutch of my palm, but that's going to be the case for some people with any mass-marketed product.

For the price though, it's a definite thumbs up.

What happens when you press the DPI button? Nothing noticeable happens when I press it with Vista.

I've got a Razer Diamondback mouse and although the Gigabyte is a fraction of the price it does show.

My gigabyte mouse should arrive soon.
I have a Logitech mx518 gaming mouse and will compare the Gigabyte with it, once it arrives.
#27
Sweetchuck, thanks very much for the mini review (left you some rep).

Couple of other things I'd like to know:

- Does it have a good 'middle' scroll wheel click? I.e. is it easy to press down without too much effort?

- About the ergonomics, would you say it's a relatively large mouse? Not so much in width, but in height?

I was going to get it for surfing alone, but it needs to have an easy smooth middle click & be small(ish) to medium-sized.

The responsiveness of my mouse increases noticeably when I push the DPI button, regardless of the application I'm in (I have Vista Home Premium and Ultimate on my computers and it responds similarly in each one). HOwever, as I said in my earlier post, although I play a lot of games, I've never before owned a dedicated gaming mouse and therefore my only real frame of reference is that of standard optical mice. Despite this, when I push the DPI button, even I notice a huge difference in terms of the distance my pointer moves on-screen for the same amount of physical movement of the mouse in my hand.

Could it be that this is only really noticeable at higher resolutions? I run 1680x1050 on my laptop and 1920x1200 on my desktop. Presumably the higher the resolution, the greater the difference when using the DPI button - if you're set at 1280x800 (WS) or 1280x1024 then it may not be so noticeable.

Hope this helps - I think I'm better qualified to answer these kind of questions than the one above!

Firstly, I too have a bit of a bugbear with middle-wheel clicks: too often, you have to push so hard that you inadvertently end up pushing the scroll wheel forward as well as down. This one is quite stiff and perhaps offers a bit too much resistance for my liking. I like my middle wheel to offer slightly more resistance than the main buttons, but this goes a bit too far in the opposite direction. It's not difficult to push down, but it's stiffer than I would like (oo-er).

Secondly, I would say that the mouse is comfortably large (again, oo-er), but then I'm used to using small optical mice (my current mouse of choice is the Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical 4000, if that gives you a better idea for comparison) and it's significantly larger than that, in terms of height and width. It is a nice shape on the sides, but I would say that it's perhaps stacked a little too high towards the left. If I had it with me, I'd give you the dimensions, but it's at home: if you can wait until tomorrow, I should be able to give you a better idea then.

Overall though, I would say that if you're looking for a small-ish mouse with a responsive middle-wheel click, this may not be the one for you. Sorry!

Dont go anywhwere near this thing. This mouse is priced at £6.99 for a reason...so you cant be bothered to take it back (or send it back in my case). The things got a mind of its own, wondering round the screen, especially when I enable the higher dpi. It fustrates me most when gaming. Anyway steer well clear!

Right my Gigiabyte mouse arrived a few days ago and Ive been using it during that time.
For some background information: I already own the Logitech MX518, gaming mouse. It is highly rated and I like it.

I took delivery of the Gigabyte mouse and am using it right now. For £6.99, its a steal. In fact, in a blind test, if you gave me the Logitech (which cost me around £25) and the Gigabyte mouse, I would struggle to tell which was more expensive.

Some people have had problems with the reliability of the Gigabyte mouse - on this I cannot comment, as Ive only had it for a few days, but the initial impressions are very very good. From what Ive seen so far, nothing even comes close, in terms of optical mice and value for money,

Ratings:
Performance: 8/10 (due to the stiff middle mouse button and positioning of the 2 side buttons)
Reliability: unknown (as Ive only used the mouse for a few days)
Size: 10/10 (perfect for big hands)
Value for money: 10/10 (you cant buy a mouse that even comes close to the Gigabyte, for £7, £10 or £15).

Are you using a mouse mat?
#32
Works fine for me on the desktop, though I haven't tried it for gaming. Tbh I wouldn't expect any sub-£10 mouse to be great for gaming, but I'd rate this as very good value for desktop use :thumbsup:

Only real annoyance is that on first try I keep missing the side buttons and trying to press the hard plastic ridge that runs along the edge above them.. :?

I do have to use a mouse matt with it still, as I did with my previous MS optical mouse. Wondering whether a laser mouse will allow me to get rid of it?

I found this, too. I guess you have to get used to the mouse, though I feel the side buttons are placed too far back.

I used to a use a MS Intellimouse and it struggled on the surface of my table. The Gigabyte has no problems with my table's surface.

Like I stated in an earlier post, this compares very well to my Logitech MX518 which is around £25. In a blind test, I would be hard pressed to tell which is the cheaper mouse.
