  • Not horrible, just not that great. Decent value.
  • I will agree with those who rate this "good for the price." I had a Logitech MX518 for several years which I loved, and this mouse is not up to that standard in ergonomics or usability. The software is fine, and the buttons are well laid out, but the tracking surfaces on the bottom of this mouse are abysmal. I have a specialty mouse pad, the ASP27814 - Allsop Metal Art Mouse Pad, which worked flawlessly with the Logitech. This mouse will NOT track evenly on it. The tracking surface of the mouse is not smooth enough, and this causes the mouse to jerk across the surface, in fact, across any surface I've tried. It is impossible to use it for fine detail work, or even click on a small "X" to close a window without a lot of positioning. The extra sensitivity of the increased DPI is wasted because of this. Maybe it would work better on a standard, cheap mouse pad, but that's not why you buy a precision laser mouse, is it?The mouse also feels cheaply made - thin plastics, garish (although customizable) LED lighting - although after adding all of the weights, it did feel more "solid". I'm sure 12yos will love the ability to change the LED color to match their...what? I don't know...curtains, maybe.It is large and fits my XL-XXL hands well, so no complaints there. The programmable buttons aren't as easy to accidentally click as on some mice, and you can disable them if you aren't using them at all, or easily reprogram them for almost any function.It's not horrible, it's just not that good.

  • Overall good mouse, software needs work though.
  • Overall its a good mouse, it fits on my hand (I use a palm grip) and it works great on my computer which is running Windows 8.1. The mouse features four programmable dpi settings (which you can switch in the software that you download from Anker's website). It has a total of 9 programmable buttons (The left/right mouse buttons, the two dpi switch buttons, the mouse wheel button, a button that's above the mouse wheel button, and the three buttons on the left of the mouse). You can also switch the lighting on the mouse. It also has small circular weights that are inserted in the button of the mouse. I have been using the mouse to play League of Legends and it works great on it. Another good aspect of the mouse is that the cord on the mouse is braided so it doesn't tangle when I use it. The only problems I've had with the mouse comes from software. The software sometimes forgets the key bindings and this has lead to some bad situations when playing games, this required me to ALT-Tab away from the game and start the Anker program to re-apply the settings by pressing the Apply button (it remembers the saved preset but you have to reapply it to get your key binding to work).

  • The mouse itself works wonders. The biggest issue I have is the little rubber grip on the left side. The feeling of it is so horrid. It -always- feels greasy, and it just has a rough texture to it that is incredibly distracting. I constantly find myself trying new ways to cover the padding.

Customer FAQ

Q1.  What is DPI?
Dots per inch (DPI) is a measurement of the mouse's sensitivity. A high DPI setting will translate small movements of the mouse on your mouspad to very large movements of the cursor on the screen and can help improve mouse accuracy.
Q2.  What is polling rate?
Polling rate (or report rate) determines how often your mouse sends information to your computer. The number in Hz directly translates to the number of times each second the mouse send data to the computer.
Q3.  What factors are most important to take into consideration when buying a new gaming mouse?
There are two major factors to consider when choosing a gaming mouse: the way the mouse feels in your hand and its performance. As long as you feel comfortable when clicking, moving, and gripping the mouse, then it will be an appropriate choice. As for performance, you should take several key parameters into account, such as the number of function keys, DPI, polling rate, and customizability. Generally speaking, the higher the value of DPI and polling rate the faster the operating speed and accuracy of the mouse will be.
Q4.  Can I use the gaming mouse to replace my regular mouse?
Yes, absolutely. The gaming mouse is completely optimised, this means it can facilitate web browsing and use with any other software. By creating different profiles for different applications, you can use the gaming mouse to completely revolutionise the way you use your computer.
Q5.  Do I need extra drivers for my mouse to work?
Yes. You will need the drivers and software utility downloadable on our website to configure the mouse buttons. Without the drivers and utility the mouse will still work but the programmable buttons will not function correctly.
Q6.  Are there Mac drivers for this mouse?
No, there are only Windows drivers available. The mouse will still work with Macs but just with the standard 3 operational buttons i.e. left and right click and the scroll wheel button.
Q7.  How do I configure the key functions for this mouse?
This is done through the software utility. Download and install the drivers and utility from our website to have a better view of how this is done.
Q8.  What is the size of this mouse. Will it fit my hand?
The mouse is slightly larger then the normal mouse (127 x 79 x 43 mm / 5.0 x 3.1 x 1.7in). Some users prefer a smaller mouse, some prefer large. It is completely user preference.
Q9.  Why is the cursor so fast?
This shows that the DPI level is high. Press the DPI button on top of the mouse to reduce the level or you can do it from the software utility
Q10.  Can I record macros for both the keyboard and mouse?
No, this isn't possible.

Issue with button press of scroll wheel

Hello,

First, I love this mouse. I recommend it to everyone. It fits my hand so perfectly, and it has everything I want and at a fraction of other gaming mice.

I use the middle click of the mouse often. Recently it started acting a bit strange in that depending on where the 'scroll' of the physical wheel is, it won't register the click and it feels off. If I scroll it a little bit and depress it again, it will give the satisfying click and the expected software behavior happens. However, when it's in those other positions, it won't depress correctly and sometimes it causes double the clicks, sometimes no clicks. 

I verfied the outside of the wheel is clean of debris, so I don't know why on the inside the position matters for registering the behavior correctly. The only thing I could think of that I'm sure is silly and not the case was that perhaps I've unevenly worn away at the mouse wheel's exterior so that in certain rotational positions it doesn't depress enough because it's physically lacking the material to  do a full depress. It doesn't look unevenly worn but that's all I could think of.

I don't know your position on warranty, I've had this one since approximately 2013 or so, purchased through Amazon. Obviously I can't be without a mouse, and I would purchase this one again in a heartbeat if necessary. Just wondering if there is any advice anyone can give me if I were to open it and take it apart (thus voiding the warranty) in hopes of restoring the normal and exact behavior of the middle click.

 

thanks

Great but some flaws

I just got the mouse from Amazon. Shipping and handling were perfect.

The mouse seemed perfect as well. Perfect grip and material.

However, I've found basically three flaws of my mouse.

Firstly, scrolling the wheel is very sticky meaning that I can feel something stuck underneath it and I need to scroll really hard to scroll up and down.

Secondly, if I shake my mouse, it rustles. It seems like some part inside of the mouse is loose or even broken.

Thridly, the base of the mouse is not really flat. If I lay it down on the desk, i can see the entire base of the mouse does not evely stick to the surface.

I don't know whether it's because I was just unlucky. I agree this is a really effiecient mouse but I'm somewhat disappoint at its details.

I'm sure when you bought it you knew that Anker supports it's products with an outstanding 18 month warranty. Regardless of what a product is or who makes it, sometimes a bad apple gets through. What counts is how a company takes care of you, and the evidence of that can be seen at this forum every day from customers who were happy with Anker's service.  Their contact information is at the bottom of this page.

New mouse feet.

I bought the mouse a few months ago, and am quite happy with it. However the teflon feet on the bottom appear to have lost a lot of their slippyness. In truth this is almost certainly my own fault as I did not use the mouse with a mat and now the feet are inperfected with scratches and bumps, needing regular application of a damp cloth to put it back to tip-top condition.

However, this has got rather tiresome, is there anywhere where I can buy some new feet for the mouse, (I will not ruin these ones! I got a new Anker mousemat).

While you won't be able to buy replacement feet here's a couple of suggestions from my experience. The simple one is that after I clean the existing feet I apply a little bit of Carnuba wax and buff it to a high gloss. All I have to do is touch the mouse with a feather-light touch and it flies across the mousepad. Another thought is that you can buy little teflon pads in craft stores and make your own, but the first solution is so much easier.

Thanks, that sounds like a good idea, there isn't any Canurba wax immediatly available where I live but I'm sure I will be able to find some next time I go into the city.

I would like to see a mouse with a small ball for feet instead of the existing pad.

I like the idea MikeC, however it reminds me of when mice had a ball instead of a laser and the ball would get dirty. Maybe little ball feet would do the same?

And by the way, Isaac Lowe, I use that wax for a lot of things. It's great for weather protecting my outdoor gear.

I thought about that but picture this. The balls don't spin. Use small ball bearing that are stationary so that the contact point is very very minute and you wounldn't have to worry about dust, hair, dirt etc... build-up. You could even replace the screws that hold the bottom on with screws that, instead of turning with a screwdriver, had the ball as part of the head. It would then be a "thumbscrew", attached by hand and the mousepad could be one of a more rigid surface, if you used a pad at all.

I'm afraid to say that we cannot supply individual feet for this model, they're designed to be permanent and as such are very difficult to peel off well.

use buttons 4, 5 and 6 as Normal buttons

Hi, i love my mouse... that being said i'd really like to do the following to make my life easier and still use this amazing product.

Use the thumb buttons 4, 5 and 6 as Normal mouse buttons. ie: assign them as literally "mouse button 4"  "mouse button 5" "mouse button 6"

I don't want them used as anything special, so that when i go into many video games, i can map "mouse button 4"  "mouse button 5" "mouse button 6", just like i would if say, i was using any of my old gaming mouse. (no single key mapped, no media, no combo keys) just a standard mouse button to each of these 3 thumb buttons.

This is to make my life easier in a few games. PLS HELP

I have 2 of these 8200s and love them. i just got my 2nd one but i really need to figure out this basic and simple usage or i have to get rid of them.

If you've downloaded the software for it those keys could be anything you wanted. It also has a "macro editor" that you could use to create any function that you want. I know you said that you don't want anything special but if they're not what you want then.........

Hi thanks for your support replies.

to clear this up, what i want is this:

Basic, no macro, no special bindings assinged to "mouse button 4"  "mouse button 5" "mouse button 6"  Thumb buttons on my mouse via the Anker configuration utility Software so that in any Video Game, those 3 thumb buttons show up in key binding editors as mouse buttons and not anything else.

I have the software installed, as i can see the options in it for mapping the "mouse button 4"  "mouse button 5" "mouse button 6" with various configurations. What i DO NOT see is to just have them as nothing special other than "mouse button 4"  "mouse button 5" "mouse button 6"  in the Anker configuration utility Software and also when in Video games...

ie: in any game, i want to map an action bar slot / ability to "mouse button 4", i cannot do this w/ Anker 8200. it has to be mapped (in game) to whatever i have designated "mouse button 4" as in the Anker configuration utility Software.

*With any other 5 button mouse, when i am in a video game, i open the key binding editor and when i click on mouse "mouse button 4" it shows up as just that "mouse button 4", but with this Anker mouse it has to be bound to whatever i have set "mouse button 4" to in the Anker configuration utility Software.

I want all 3 thumb buttons ie: "mouse button 4"  "mouse button 5" "mouse button 6" just those. not anything else

Does this make sense?

Disabling these buttons in Anker configuration utility Software turns them off and doesn't disable any special configuration mode for them, nor does NOT using / uninstalling Anker configuration utility Software help.

==== when i play a game NOT using my Anker mouse, using another 5 or 6 button nothing-special gaming mouse i still want the same in game configurations to work.

 

basically it might just be me not seeing how to set a default for "mouse button 4"  "mouse button 5" "mouse button 6"  but i have looked and looked, searched online as well.

Problems with driver software

Hey guys,
I have a problem with connecting my mouse. Windows 7 recognizes the mouse, but your software doesn't so that i can't change the settings like dpi or color.I already tried reinstallation, plugging in and out the mouse, restarting the pc, I also manually deinstalled the mouse in the hardware settings but nothing helped. Do you have an idea how to solve this problem? 
Thanks!!

Being an old fart I am not completely computer literate and 'am finding very difficult to set my buttons using the macro. I won't be using the mouse for gaming so I will want to set the buttons for normal usage. (i.e. will it be possible to launch my browser, a specific program etc)

Very good mouse for the price.

Very excellent mouse.  I've had it for about a week, and no problems have surfaced yet.  Very comfortable, but my fingers do slip a little.  But that is to be suspected with the lower than average price of a gaming mouse.  Overall a good mouse for the price, and budget!  Also is great pairing with the corsair K keyboards. especially the K30
