Without an optical drive, we went over to Etekcity and found the driver and software download pretty easily. After the quick installation process, this is what we were given. In the main controls, we find all the buttons labeled at the left with their current functions listed to the right in the button assignments. The profiles along the bottom are also going to use the trio of lights to show which you are using or trying to program.

Just to show the options of what can be programmed into the mouse by default, Etekcity offers a decent list of options. For instance, the multimedia optional functions could be handy.

The Windows options for the buttons are a bit less impressive, but handy to have nonetheless. Also, keep in mind that these can all be mixed and matched as well, you don't have to set them all to a group; it comes down to if you can remember what they all are set to.

More impressive is that for $15, you even get the option to use Macros. You can import and export on the main window, but here you get the basics like recording time delays, but not manually setting them, and you also get loop counter to set the amount of times it is spammed. Outside of that, you don't get much, but it's still nice to have at our fingertips what is included.

The last thing you can do is switch over to the advanced settings tab. Here you have the ability to change each profile and what they are set to. We are on profile one, and while it shows 500Hz polling rate, we changed to 1600 DPI rather than the default 800, and we can also change the scroll wheel speed and the double click speed.
