    software is highly customizable, fairly lightweight

    far from Alienware 'blingy', Alienware logo is very inconspicuously etched

    made by Logitech - actually a G9 with a slightly different body

    often can be had for far below the MSRP - one of the least expensive 5000dpi mice

  • 2

    customizable lighting - can be set to one of 20 colours, can be turned off completely

  • 2

    tilt wheel is fairly thick and well set - as to not be shifted either way if a click is what's intended
