[Mouse]SteelSeries: World of Warcraft Legendary Edition Gaming Mouse

The SteelSeries World of Warcraft Legendary Edition mouse is easily one of the best mice I have used, both for general purpose and gaming. With three large feet, it glides across any surface. The mouse weighs 115grams. The top of the mouse has a smooth finish, while the sides have a rubbery grip. It will fill nice to the touch, no matter how many hours you've been gaming. The smooth finish makes it easy to slide your hand onto the mouse, but the rubbery sides won't let you lose your grip. It has 11 buttons, four on the left, pressed with the thumb, one on the right pressed with the pinky, and six at the rest of your finger tips. Being ergonomically designed, the 11 buttons are easily accessible, and flow with the mouse design. When I first used the mouse, I was worried about hitting the extra buttons, but the buttons require a different amount of force to press each button, so pressing the wrong button is never a problem.
Code:
                 Force (grams)
Button 1  |      80g
Button 2  |      80g
Button 3  |      200g
Button 4  |      150g
Button 5  |      150g
Button 6  |      200g
Button 7  |      80g
Button 8  |      80g
Button 9  |      80g
Button 10 |      80g
Button 11 |      150g
In the software, the 11 buttons of the mouse can be adjusted to do what you want them to do. In the Button Assignment tab you will be able to bind World of Warcraft in game functions, change the CPI on the fly, switch through the profiles you set up, and even custom macros. The custom macros can only simulate keyboard button presses, both with and without delay. Being an officially licensed Blizzard product, the mouse has an “In-game” mode which will allow changing the buttons while in World of Warcraft. The customs macros saved me a lot of time and effort both in and out of game. I could sit back and relax, while using only the extra buttons to do multiple tasks.
The illuminated World of Warcraft logo can be changed. It can vary with over 16 million colors, intensity, and rate of pulsation. This could be used to easily tell which profile you're using. Unfortunately, you’ll probably never see it light up, unless your hand is transparent, or you take your hand off the mouse. But why would you want to do that?
The mouse can have up to 10 different profiles. Profiles can be set up to only be used only when a certain program is active. For World of Warcraft, profiles can be attached to specific characters, so you will never have to worry about having the wrong profile when playing.
Overall the SteelSeries World of Warcraft Legendary Edition makes for a great multipurpose mouse, and will enhance your gaming experience, whether you play World of Warcraft or not.

Score: 9.5/10 (10/10 for World of Warcraft players)

    I'd definitely buy it if I could afford it. That would help so much when I PvP on my Ele Shammy.
