    So far so good. Took one star off because of the fact …, November 12, 2014

    This review is from: Etekcity® Scroll T-142 4000 DPI High Precision 6 Programmable Buttions USB Wired Optical Computer Gaming Mouse for Windows and Mac (Personal Computers)

    Update (11/13/14): I don’t know if it’s just me, but after I updated the drivers the mouse would freeze for about 5 seconds every time the driver loaded upon startup. I guess it’s to change the preferences of my mouse to the custom settings that I had adjusted the mouse to. Not a huge deal, just a little annoying. Works perfectly fine after that initial lockup though. Follow-up 15 minutes later… I have thought of something that might fix this problem. After you have set up your mouse to your preference, remove the driver program. Flat out uninstall it. So far the settings have been kept by the mouse’s onboard memory and hopefully will continue to stay that way throughout restarts and shut downs… Will update more later.

    Update#2 (11/14/14): So installing the driver, tweaking your preferences, then uninstalling the driver program will save your settings. You will also not have to deal with the mouse freezing as the driver program loads up. The driver program, at least the newest version of it, will, for some reason, reset your BUTTON CONFIGURATIONS back to factory defaults after you restart or turn off your computer. I was about to take off another star for this flaw because on top of having the mouse frozen every time I start my computer, I have to go and change the buttons again. It only happens for button configurations, but even if I liked the way original button layout was, the freezing still would have annoyed me greatly down the road. As of this update, my review is considered complete until any more problem arises. I really hope this helps others with the similar problem.

    Original Review:

    So far so good. Took one star off because of the fact that, for some reason, when using in my USB 3.0 slots, the mouse will randomly jump to the top of my primary screen, or off to my secondary monitor screen. This annoyed me very much. I reinstalled the driver and the issue persisted. I finally switched it to my USB 2.0 hub and it totally fixed the problem. Go figure. It works just fine that way, but I didn’t really like having to stick my mouse in a hub instead of in the back. I deducted one star for this, first and foremost.

    There are people who have stated that this mouse doesn’t last, so I will definitely be keeping that in mind and will update the moment it gives me any trouble with functionality. I use the computer practically daily, and quite heavily at that. So if this mouse can last me even one year, it will have been money well spent.

    The Pros:
    1) It definitely feels like a more expensive mouse- namely the logitech G9X.
    2) It is big, and it is heavy. This might be a con for some people, such as those with small or weak hands. Though even with small hands this mouse will probably still work for you. Those with weak hands, well, work out more?
    3) Braided cables. I don’t know why, braided cables just makes me feel more at peace.
    4) Solid-feeling clicks. You know how mice sometimes make that empty-feeling sound when you click on them? Like you can easily mistaken them for the leftovers of an insect’s molted shell? Yeah, not with this mouse. Solid feeling clicks, very nice.
    4)I really like the way the scroll wheel glides and clicks. I came from the Logitech G9X and it was quite a tough job to depress the scroll button. The shape and the weight, surprisingly, feels a LOT like the G9X. I ALMOST instantly adjusted to it. The driver was nicely written, in my opinion, and the instructions are pretty straight forward. Key rebinding was also easy (had to switch the left and right side buttons because I was more used to that way – more on this in “Other Thoughts” section) through the driver program. So far, very precise; can’t even tell the difference between the G9X and this one in terms of precision. Those who tell you they can are either imagining it or lying out their ***. Seriously, I can do literally everything with this mouse as I could have on the G9X.
    5) Cool pulsating lights for those of you 15 year olds that like that ****. Oh who am I kidding I’m 22 and I still love that ****.
    6) This mouse is actually ambidextrous, unlike the G9X. Yup. Thoughtful.

    The Cons:

    1)Doesn’t seem to do well with USB 3.0. I saw just ONE other reviewer had this issue (he gave one star and returned it). Thankfully, with a bit of work I was able to resolve the mouse jumping issue mentioned in the first paragraph. However, it should really have stated on the package that it doesn’t not support USB 3.0. I could be wrong, but whilst my G9X is malfunctional after 2 years of heavy use, it never did the jumping thing like the Scroll T-142 did. If your mouse also jumps, try using it in a USB 2.0 slot – it could save you a lot of grief. Hell, just put it in a USB 2.0 slot to begin with if you have one. It makes no noticeable difference to you which one you use anyway, I guarantee it.

    2) Possible con, depending on how…

    I gave the Etekcity® Scroll T-142 some usage for the week and it’s been working like a champ!

    I’ve uploaded some pictures for your viewing pleasure.

    On arrival thoughts:
    The packaging looks great, just like the gaming mouse packages you see in stores, with a flap that shows the mouse.
    First thing that caught my attention is the rubberized top, it feels soft and comfortable.
    Etekcity pictures does show the mouse as it is, no gimmicks ( I like that)
    The white portion of the mouse has led lights below that allows it to change colors.
    Nylon cord, makes the quality that much better. Feels durable..

    The page forward/backward (can be macroed) buttons did take a bit to get used to.
    I am used to the gaming mouses with two buttons on the left side for page foward and back.
    Adaptation to the buttons did not take too long. After a day’s use was fine.

    LED:
    Changed through hitting the DPI button. I was in the options when I tapped it, (Didn’t see any options in their program)

    Good:
    Nice size
    Sides has holes.
    Scroll wheel works fine, functions well. Does not catch.
    Programmable buttons
    Multiple profiles
    Wired

    Improvements:
    Not much that I can tell, I will update If I see any.

    [Fingertip gripper] [Minor Palm grip]

    Overall, it is a great mouse and I love the rubberized left and right clicks.
    I was used to the plastic clicks.

    Hope this is helpful to ya! If not, leme know what ya need to know.
