PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The bottom of the mouse shows the laser and the weight compartment lid. The glide feet used are fairly large and should provide a nice smooth mousing experience.
When you remove the lid you see a neat array of holes in pressed foam, opening the weight box reveals the same hole configuration as well as the 7 25g weights. This allows you to customize the mouse's weight according to your preference. I personally found that using 2 of the weights gave the mouse a feel I enjoy. Whilst this may seem rather gimmicky it does actually make a difference to the feel of the mouse.
Here you can see how the scroll wheel illuminates different colors depending on the dpi setting you have selected. The default settings scrolled through by pressing the DPI button are:
No light - 400dpi
Red Light - 800dpi
Green Light - 1600dpi
Blue Light - 2000dpi
Although you can change this via the software.
You can also see the DPI and macro buttons above the scroll wheel. The macro button allows you to change between 3 different macros containing your button profiles. These are also represented by 3 different color LEDs, however they did not show clearly on the pictures but you should be able to make out a green glow on the button marked “M”.
