Amazon prime now with 10 dollars off if you haven't used the promocode yet 10PRIMENOW. Promocode for first time orders. Same Day Delivery if available.

Caveat, they expect you to tip about 10% of the order. So it's really 4-5 dollars off.

I got the Core for $40 on Black Friday, but this is the lowest I've seen the Spectrum.

Lowest ever price, but I don't know if I should bite or maybe wait for Cyber Monday instead.

Do you really need this if you aren't a pro? I got the best selling mouse on Amazon that sells for $15 I can't remember the name but I got it on eBay for $5 with eBay buckd and the monoprice one they had for $6. I'm a first time PC gamer and my rig will be ready soon. What's the difference for the money?

Also I will probably be using my elite controller mostly when I can (minus shooters)

You're asking if people need this, then go on to mention that you have an elite controller.

It isn't about needs. It's about wants.

I also have an elite controller and I have this mouse, but not this spectrum version. Don't need either.

Yeah I got the Cosair Strafe RGB silent keyboard too on sale and liked playing around with it more than I expected which is why I pay the tax on Best Buy so I could return it easier than newegg if I didn't. I always pick these items up the last day so I don't have any buyers remorse if a better deal comes along. This is an expensive hobby but after MS announced cross play I decided to jump in because of no more exculsives.

I have the elite controller because being a console gamer since I was a kid in the late 70's I've always used controllers and the one thing I don't like about the one controller is the weight. I miss the weight of the 360 controller so that rationalized it for me plus getting it $30 off open box mint.
I'm unsure of how much mousing I'll be doing because I've never really done it. I have a feeling I'll revert to the controller on most games but the mouse does make sense on shooters for sure. I only play multiplayer with a few friends so how much difference will this make in my situation? Will it make that huge a difference if I don't have a feel for a gaming mouse in the first place? The question is of value>cost.

The weight is probably the thing I like most about the elite controller. It makes the standard controllers feel like cheap toys even though they are really good as well.

That controller however does make a difference in terms of functionality. It may not be giving me a huge advantage but I love using two paddles in the back. Especially for shooters.

I also have that green razer blackwidow keyboard that I thought I needed. Same with this mouse. Don't think they make any real difference for me personally. They are just nice and I like having them.

While you don't necessarily need a $60+ mouse for gaming, having a decent gaming mouse is recommended.

While tracking issues and inconsistencies might be annoying while doing tasks in Windows, those problems literally become game-changers in a game. They not only break immersion, they also break any sort of flow or concentration while in the game.

When I try to game with a less-than-good mouse, I find myself trying to compensate for the shortcomings of the mouse. Sometimes in very big ways, like I wouldn't attempt a fast paced kill run or jumping in to a group of ememies like I might with a good mouse. In games like starcraft, I end up focusing on a smaller area of the map because I don't want to have to spread out with a mouse that could take me off course...

Thanks for the heads-up answer. I reserved one at BB to pick up. I have those two cheaper mice that I can rationalize keeping so my kid doesn't touch this one (or hopefully my wife either) if using the PC as I also bought her a micro controller to keep her mitts off my Elite controller. Plus I've found out to always have a back up in gaming. This one is going in the locked cabinet when I'm not home.

The more I was reading about it the more I'm curious. It was rated in the "Top" of a lot of mouse articles I was Googling just now. The thing that makes me a little tepid is that some female reviewers on Amazon were gloating about how great it was for their "small" hands and this mouse would be for me.
I have bigger hands. Not like a giant or wide receiver but they are bigger than average. I'm assuming you've seen this item in person? Would this be a limiting factor in purchasing this mouse? It is for guys with smaller hands or petite lady hands? I don't want anything too dainty.

Yeah that's a good way to look at it. Kinda like wasting your entertainment time on a bad movie. You only have so many free hours in life and to flush them down the toilet is such a waste. I've put thousands into this rig to start at the high-end so I'm not a miser I'm just ignorant to the differences and if I"m on SD obviously I'm a dollar stretcher. As I stated in the earlier reply I'm feeling more confident now on the value upon reading up on it a little. Just worried about it being too small for my hands. I've also never really thought about what type of mouse gripper I am until buying this PC.

The ergonomics of the mouse is the most important factor. For claw grip mouse users there are not many mice that fit our needs. The Logitech G9 shape is considered the perfect mouse for us but it's long discontinued. This mouse is the closest thing to it offering more modern features.
