  • Great mouse for gaming. Very responsive and the weight system is excellent. It is a bit slippery so for people with small hands (like me) it takes some getting used to when using the front buttons. Seems well made.

  • I was looking for an upgrade for my old gaming mouse for awhile. I finally decided to try this Anker, and I'm quite happy. My old mouse only had 2 buttons for the thumb. The additional thumb button is quite nice for a lot of the FPS games I've been playing recently.The driver package allows for easy manipulation of button mapping. Switching between games it no problem.Notes:This is my first laser mouse. I'm not familiar enough with the genre to consider myself an expert in the field. I am happy with how it performs and it has met all of my expectations.

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.

Primrose May Re: Anker 8200 Mouse
I unpacked it, went to your website to download the manual and the driver.  What joy!  It looked good, and the required downlads were on the right page and downloaded easily.  Now came the next joy!!  I could not open the zipped driver and it would not respond to anything.   After trying most things, I thought that it may respond to right-clicking but then came the third joy!!!  This proved to be terrifying as the screen flicked on and off like a lightning storm.  I could not stop anything with the Task Manager, so had to keep everything still enough to press the Shutdown button.  I thought I would try and get more joy!!!!  Oh yes, I got the lightning again.Enough is enough, so I have packed it up and will send it back to you to try and sell it too some other sucker.  It did feel good under my hand and was precise when moving around, but I had to open my pc again just to check it was not still flashing.  It wasn't, thank goodness.  I should state here that the secure fastening looked as though it h ad been tampered with.  Whether it has, I do not know, but you are still getting it back.Yours faithfullyPrimrose May

The screws that hold the top and bottom together are located under the grey feet on the bottom. You have to peel them off, remove the screws then the top and bottom are seperated. Once done though it will never be the same because of the feet.

We wouldn't be able to provide instructions for the disassembling of our products unfortunately. They are closed systems and we would hate for modifications to cause any kind of damage or injury.

Unpredictable vertical scrolling
I have had this mouse for some time, and it has always had this problem.  After re-installing/updating drivers, I noted the following in Windows 7:1.  It uses the HID Input driver from Microsoft dated back in 2006 (the Anker software is installed and works fine...but do you guys really just idenitfy as a plain ole Mouse?)2.  Verified weird behavior by watching the screen while in mouse record mode.  Turning the mouse one click down will send a mouse up or mouse down event rather unpredictably (2 downs followed by an up, or a single down, or a down and an up, etc).  This tracks with the screen view, which makes the screen scroll up and down once really fast, maybe going in the opposite direction, maybe staying the same after the jumps, or maybe one click in the desired direction.  Makes no difference how slowly or quickly, or what the polling rates or settings are for mouse scrolling.Is this a hardware defect with my particular mouse? A driver problem?  Or what?  Help!

Hi, i'm playing battlefield 3 online on origin, i have my mouse speeds set as  i want and it works fast and smooth when in a tank or vehicle, but when my soldier is on foot the mouse goes very jerky and totaly unaceptable, is anyone else  having this problem and what causes it.

This sounds like it may be an issue with the game software itself as opposed to a problem with the mouse, especially if you're not experiencing issues with the mouse at any other times.

Please try and get in touch with your game's publisher or developer (or perhaps consult their forums to see if any other users have experienced this issue) to try and see if this is a common problem.

If you do need to discuss it with us further then do get in touch with our customer service guys at and let them know.

This mouse doesn't have Mac drivers available.

It should work as plug and play for the main mouse buttons but the additional ones will not be programmable.

Just not up to snuff.
I game a lot on pc, particularly counter-strike, and this was my first gaming mouse. I've had it for about 6 months. There are three important problems that I'd like to address in this review. The first one is the shape of the mouse. Sure, it's ergonomic, except that the indentation where you are supposed to place your thumb was way too high for me. Most mice have that thumb space much lower at the bottom/base of the mouse. As a result, I grew the habit of instead placing my thumb on the ridge seen sticking out below the thumb-pad, so that I had more control of the entire mouse. To be more specific, I like to have my thumb lightly dragging along the mousepad as I use a mouse. This meant that the thumb-buttons were much too far away for quick access. Plus, it was just plain annoying that I couldn't use the designated grip-pad for my thumb. I tried breaking this habit, but the little ridge below was simply more comfortable and my thumb would automatically move back down to the ridge at times where my aim needed to be more precise.My second problem was in the mouse wheel. Randomly the mouse wheel would start sticking, as if it was grinding against something underneath. After jiggling it about for a while, it always went back to normal again. I know that this wasn't a problem with grime, as I keep my mouse very clean. This lack of dependability made the mouse wheel sketchy to use in fast-paced games, as I never knew when it was going to start sticking again.The first two problems were tolerable, but finally one day the connection in the wiring just started deteriorating. At first, I would just have to move the wire around a bit to get the connection going and the mouse to turn on. But now, it has simply stopped working altogether. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the USB connector or the wiring within, but I consider it an unlucky defect that probably won't happen with every model of this mouse made, so I doubt you have to worry about it if you are considering buying this mouse. Luckily, all Anker products have an 18 month warranty. I plan to get a refund of this mouse, the money of which will go into the investment of a mouse from a more well-known and trusted brand, such as logitech, razer, madcatz, etc. It's a shame that this mouse didn't work out for me, as it seemed to work fine for most of the people writing these reviews. My advice is that a buyer should know how they like to hold their mice before they buy one.

Sorry to hear that you had such a negative experience on this occasion.

In regards to the shape of the mouse, we do recognise that mice are very difficult to make as one-size-fits-all so gamers will occasionally come across a mouse that doesn't suit their style.

Here at Anker we do have strict and rigorous quality control checks in place so we can only apologise that this particular one got through and out to you.

If you get in touch with our customer service team at and let them know the problems you've been having they'll certainly get you a refund sorted ASAP.

Macro question
Is there any way to make a macro loop repeat as long as the button is held down ?
Replies(2) Collapse Report as spam May 30, 2014 at 3:40 PM

Unfortunately, currently our software doesn't allow the macros to run in a repeating loop.

We'll certainly look into it for future updates though.

No, the best you could do is set it to do the function on press and then do it again on release.
