|mezosurfer||I got the mouse+pad about a year ago from a Woot sell, and I have to say that the mouse is smaller then normal. Also, if you use it, the mouse comes with it's own macro/control software and it doesn't show up within Synapse. But other then that, I loved the mouse.|

Believe it or not, this mouse isn't a big seller for Razer, so this price isn't all that fantastic. There was a newegg promotion a while back where you got this for free when you bought a DeathAdder. I almost pulled the trigger on that deal, but I didn't really need 2 mice for $60 when I already had more razer mice than I knew what to do with (Pro Solutions 1.6, DeathAdder, Imperator, and a Abyssus(sp?) ).
I'd pass on this, but that's me

I bought this on Woot at the end of 2011 along with the fancy light trail mousepad.
Overall, I would not buy this again.
My unit would consistently double middle-click, leading to opening and closing more tabs than I intended in every browser. I had to RMA the mouse for this issue - I had to pay my own shipping to send the mouse back to Razer, and they shipped me back a working mouse 3 weeks later with a squeaky scroll wheel.
Quality of Life Issues:
1. You can turn off all the lights with the Razer software, but not the startup sound. If your computer powers down the USB ports when it goes to sleep, be ready to hear a WHOOSH WHOOSH WHOOSH everytime you wake your computer.
2. Philips Twin-Eye Sensor so the pointer moves a bit every time you lift the mouse off of the mousepad.
3. The right side buttons are set to DPI up and down by default, but there are no lights on the device to indicate DPI. There's an overlay that appears on the screen when you change sensitivities, but the overlay stupidly appears behind every window - it only shows up when you can see the desktop. If your browser is covering your desktop, you have to move the window to see what the sensitivity is.
4. Razer Tron software is bound to a single USB port. If you plug your mouse into a different USB port besides the one the mouse was plugged into when installing, the software says "mouse not detected" and you can't change key bindings or settings. For what it's worth, the DPI overlay still works though.
5. The mousepad is somewhat neat, but the texture is not very comfortable if you rest your palm on the mousepad. Recommend using a gel wrist rest along with it if you get it. The light trails are pretty faint after 14 months - if I have my lights on I can't see them.
TL;DR - If you aren't a huge TRON fan, then this mouse is not for you.

I loved mine. My friend still uses his that I gave him. I've switched back to my Performance MX for the time being but still one of the best mouses I've used.
I bought three of them from Woot for what looks like $39.99 each NEW back in...November of 2011.
...how the hell do they still have these in-stock?!?!
I farking LOVE the pad. Still using it right this second. Shame it isn't included. Seems like the deal I got 1.5 years ago from Woot was better then.
