Great bargain, solid gaming mouse
I just ordered the raptor m30, it arrived today from ups. I can assuredly tell you, it is not garbage -- actually far from it. Sure, it's not a deathadder, but honestly, it gets the job done, looks cool, and more importantly, plays fps games like a charm. Ignore the overly paranoid cliche of individuals who think the whole raptor line up is ****. It's a very great deal for the price, and the build quality is quite good actually. Not astounding, mind you, but there's some very capable hardware that most hc gamers demand. I wanted a deathadder, but for $50, i'd rather have this and believe me, i don't regret my purchase. It's very similar to the da from my comparisons.The shape is very traditional, seems to be optimized for people with average sized hands (and i have smaller hands -- this doesn't hamper anything). Dpi maxes out to 4000, which is more than enough; additionally, you can "quick" shift sensitivities to low, medium, high, and extra high with the press of a button located behind the scrolling wheel.As a battlefield 3 player, i knew i had to try it out on multiplayer. The dpi switching comes in handy when per say, you decide to switch from an engineer kit to recon, and then back to engineer, and so on. Of course, there are limits to this, but it is a very convenient little feature. As well, you can program the two side buttons to perform any key stroke, even a macro if you're in to that. The clicking is very satisfying; not too easy, but then again, not ultra-firm it's the sweet spot for me.I think corsair is a rather underrated peripherals maker, and this review speaks nothing but the truth. I am content with my purchase, and recommend this mouse for anyone, especially fps-heavy gamers who don't have a lot of cash to shell out. It really is perfect for my uses.Additionally, the individual below me claiming there was a "clicking" issue is entirely wrong. My raptor m30 has experienced none of this, therefore, the issue is solely on his/her indivudual unit -- suggesting a manufacturing defect. It is wrong to claim this issue exists on all m30's. Rather, a very small percentage of them.
