What Could Have Been Better

The mouse can be confusing and takes time to get used to it. This is because of too many buttons. There is also no indicator to check the battery level.

The DPI button is placed directly below the scrolling wheel. So while using the wheel, fingers can accidentally change the DPI setting without meaning to.

The size of the mouse is not very big. It won’t be comfortable for people with large hands.

The forward button is not placed comfortably can be too far for the thumb to reach. Many users have complained that they had to rotate hands a bit to reach it.

As its wired, the mouse cannot be moved much away. The length of the cable should have been a bit longer for freedom of movement away from the computer.
