I am an avid gamer and I am SO glad I got this mouse!! It is seriously the nicest mouse I have ever used! From the moment I opened the box, I knew it was going to be the mouse I will use for a very long time. The mouse comes with 4 pieces. The mouse, the adapter, the usb cable and the receiver. The receiver is located on the bottom of the mouse, in a little compartment. Once you plug in the receiver, you turn the mouse on, on the bottom of the mouse and you are ready to go! If you do not want to use the mouse as a wireless mouse, you can also just plug the usb cable into it and use it as a wired mouse. Plugging it into the cable also charges the mouse for when you want to use it as a wireless mouse. It is very straight forward and easy to use!
Another thing that happens when you plug in the receiver into your usb port, is that it will automatically download what is called the Razer Synapse 3. This is where you can configure your mouse for when you are gaming. You can also change the colors of the mouse when it lights up! You can actually have up to 5 different profiles that can be stored on this mouse! This means that you can use the mouse and the profiles (configurations) on other devices that do not have razer synapse 3 installed on them! The mouse basically stores your gaming configurations on the cloud, inside the mouse.. it's insane! There is a profile change button located on the bottom of the mouse, right above the switch where you turn the mouse on. You can tell which profile you are using by the color that is shown when you press the profile button. The colors are white, red, green, blue and cyan. All in all, this mouse has 7 different programmable buttons on it that you can configure.
The amount of color options for this mouse is INSANE! You can change the colors of the mouse in the Chroma Studio. This opens up as well when you plug the receiver in or you can get to it by searching for it in your search bar, or keeping it on your desktop! You can choose from every color imaginable! You can even have it use multiple colors! The Chroma Studio is amazing and easy to figure out too. You have multiple different lighting effects as well. These include breathing, which makes the lights fade in and out. Reactive is when it was light up whenever you click any button on the mouse. Spectrum is when it cycles between all 16.8 million colors!!!!! And Static is when the color just stays lit in the color you choose.
When you are using this mouse, and the battery starts to wear out, the scroll wheel will actually blink to let you know it's ready to be charged! I love this because you can't always tell when a mouse needs to be charged again. This mouse also has a 50 hour battery life! That is an amazing amount of time for a mouse. It was has a 16,000 DPI optical sensor which makes the mouse move smoother and more fast and precise!
Seriously, this is the most amazing mouse I have ever used. It is VERY easy to figure out. You can spend as much time as you want programming it and figuring out colors, or you can just take literally 2-3 minutes to pick a color real quick and to program it real fast. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who is a gamer, or even those who just use their computer for basic things too! It's an amazing mouse for gamers though, that's for sure! PLEASE consider giving this mouse a shot because you will not regret it!
Pros: battery life, quality, precision, ease of use
