So it worked right out of the box, and I liked the heft of it -- not too heavy to pick up and move, but not flying out of my hand, either. The size is just small enough to be comfortable, since my hands are smaller than average. The fit under the palm is great, but the travel for the buttons I use with my index finger is a bit farther than the office mice I use day-to-day. The braided cord reaches the back of my full tower, with room to route it somewhat tidily. I guess it's a tad on the long side. Both connection to the USB and the entry into the mouse feel solid, always a worry with budget/entry level components.
In order to program my buttons, I had to download the driver from Sharkk's website (I don't have an optical drive on my desktop build, so I can't say how that route would have differed). Easy enough to do. When I got it installed initially, it opened without a problem, but wouldn't save and exit: I kept getting an error that it was unable to save my profile in the directory it tried to use, and there was no option to change the intended directory. I uninstalled completely and reinstalled two more times without success, each time in different directories. Finally I decided to install it to the Documents folder that it kept trying to save to -- success. So now I have my buttoms mapped the way I wanted; all is well in Skyrim.
Since apparently one has to take a certain number of LEDs with one's gaming accessories, the first thing I tried to do once I got the driver installed was find a light configuration that was pleasing and not over the top. All of the colors work (the DPI indicator LED is the one under the scroll, so that's tied to your preference there) except purple. And purple is my favorite color :/ But with mine, if I set it to purple, it lights up kind of... teal-ish. Not the worst, but not purple. So I'm not sure if that just an issue with this one, or across the board, but when I have some time I'll read through others' reviews to see if I'm alone in this or not.
On a final note, I will say that the settingsapp itself is a bit on the garish and unpolished side. Several typos that I could see, and just a Lisa Frank level profusion of colors. It doesn't make it any less useful, but it does detract from the overall experience somewhat.
PROS: affordable, works as promised, seems solidly built, not totally hideous
CONS: not exactly beautiful, rough time making the app work, rough app in general
What I love most about this mouse is that it is extremely responsive. This is critical to me because I spend 8-10 hours per day using a keyboard and mouse for my work with three dimensional computerized software. For certain tasks I switch the mouse to my left hand and use my right for entering calculations so that I am not constantly switching my right hand from the mouse to the keyboard and back again. With the Sharkk I easily programmed it to switch to Mode 2 which is set up for use with my left hand. I find that the wire on this mouse is not really a problem when comparing it with a wireless mouse. The wire a cord-like fabric -- exactly thick enough not to get tangled up, but flexible enough to not get in the way or inhibit the mouse's movements. Even though my previous mouse was a name brand wireless and cost about $50, within a year's time it became less and less responsive. I purchased the Sharkk gaming mouse because of other's reviews and after researching it seems that in general, wired mouses are more responsive. I have certainly found this to be the case with the Sharkk.
This Mouse is a good robust product; a mouse that has great precision, has great customization thanks to its bundled software. The palm rest has a great grip and the ergonomic-fit is perfect for my needs and hand size. I must admit that I did not get this for gaming but for work - as I wanted a good responsive mouse that delivers, and considering its price point from Amazon.com - this was a no brainer purchase
