On the side of the mouse is the standard forward and back affair, with good spring strength whilst not protruding too much to make them accidentally clickable, like some other mice I've tried. On the opposing right hand side is a single button that you have to stretch your pinky to reach; this is the profiles selector button to cycle through the three main profiles supported by the mouse.
The colour of the GIGABYTE logo shifts accordingly to the profile selected, so you can never be in doubt which one you are on.
As mentioned before, the mouse comes supplied with a weight system, consisting of 3x6gram weights and a single large 20gram puck, giving you the option to add up to the full 38 grams if you really want to feel the burn.
Turning our attention to the mouse mat supplied, GIGABYTE has gone for a soft version consisting of the high density neoprene backing for superior grip and a microfiber top to give a patterned surface that is easy to track using laser optics.
Looking at the software supplied, we can see that there are the usual array of features and levels of customisation expected, including button assignment, sensitivity of the four DPI settings and also scroll speed adjustment for both X and Y directions (yup, this mouse sports side scrolling action!)
Lastly, the final tab lets you access the Windows device settings to give you further tweaking options of the mouse under Windows... you know... in case you like mouse pointer trails...
But enough about the specs, it's all about how it performs in-game that separates the mice from the... rats? (Just go with me on this one)
Loading up the faithful Call of Duty 4 for a bit of tactical fpsing, the immediate benefit of being able to hot foot the DPI up and down with a casual flick of the finger makes sniping and headshots a breeze.
