  • Super cheap gaming mouseVerified PurchaseThis review is from: Anker® CG100 8200 DPI High Precision Programmable Laser Gaming Mouse for PC, 9 Programmable Buttons, Weight Tuning Cartridges, Omron Micro
  • Super cheap gaming mouse. Pretty awesome when you can change the colors of the anchor. Only thing that upset me is it does not really make me any better at FPS, but that's really because I'm garbage at them. Every time I start counter strike I realize that I never would have a chance in professional gaming. So I just turn on my casual game and sigh to myself.Go to bed early, wake up, go to work, talk to customers, go home, kiss my dog, eat dinner, casual game, and go to bed. Every day.Every day.

  • Quality, assurance and versatility at a sweet price point!Verified PurchaseThis review is from: Anker® CG100 8200 DPI High Precision Programmable Laser Gaming Mouse for PC, 9 Programmable Buttons, Wei
  • I love this mouse. This replaces my tired Logitech G9 that I simply wore out. This is a tad larger than the Logitech G9 but not so much that it really makes a difference. The reason I purchased this is that its shape is nearly identical and the button layout is simple and effective... Not to mention the ridiculously reasonable price! You're just not going to get an 8200 DPI mouse of this quality with Anker's great customer service (haven't used them but I've done my research and they seem super responsive) at this price point!

  • Buttons are easy to access and not prone to accidental pressingVerified PurchaseThis review is from: Anker® CG100 8200 DPI High Precision Programmable Laser Gaming Mouse for PC, 9 Programmable Buttons
  • Sleek design fits well with the hand. Buttons are easy to access and not prone to accidental pressing. Braided cord is very resilient to wear and tear, and has plenty of length. Software with the mouse is easy to set up and use. If that's not enough for you, those lights look even cooler in person.

  • Great alternative to logitech performance MXVerified PurchaseThis review is from: Anker® CG100 8200 DPI High Precision Programmable Laser Gaming Mouse for PC, 9 Programmable Buttons, Weight Tuning Car
  • I bought this because my logitech performance mouse MX has started failing me for a second time with phantom mouse clicks. This is my first Anker mouse, actually my first anything other than logitech in many years. I'm of the opinion that logitech mice quality has dropped substantially (maybe as an evil ploy to increase product turnover and sales). I bought this because I wanted a full sized desktop mouse similar to that of the logitech perforamance mouse MX that its replacing. Its similar in size and fits my large hands, and though I do notice a difference in the mouse shape, its not a bad thing. I do miss the having a free turning scroll wheel, mostly because it was fun and less from a functional standpoint.The anker software is adequate, and relatively easy to use. There are many options I suspect that I won't ever use for normal day-to-day desktop usage. I like the ability to have 4 different sensitivity settings, more than I need, but I use them all anyway. I put all the weights in the mouse immediately, and probably would have added more weight if they provided it. I don't want to give the impression that its a feather weight mouse, even when loaded with all the weight- I'm not a serious gamer, so I'm not trained to specifically weighted mice.I do really like the mouse, and I'm happy that I not longer feel that Logitech is the only game in town. I've only had this mouse for a few weeks, but even if it breaks in a year, that's 6 months longer than my far more expensive logitech mouse lasted.

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.

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.

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!

It does sound like your mouse may be experiencing some problems.

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.
Replies(1) Collapse Report as spam Jun 13, 2014 at 7:17 AM

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.

Not the best or the worst gaming mouse.
I've had difficulty with SteelSeries products, which frankly are just crap. I've tried two of their gaming mice and they both broke relatively quickly. SteelSeries mice feel very organic in how the buttons are laid out but as far as longevity goes they're sorely lacking. They're too expensive, too.I feel like this mouse is the opposite. It's been working great, although it's pretty new. The customization of the buttons is much, much more diverse with the Anker mouse. I can control iTunes with it which is pretty awesome. I prefer Anker to SteelSeries hands down.That being said the button layout feels very inorganic. The center two buttons feel completely inaccessible and since Elder Scrolls Online uses the mouse to steer, when I move my hand to try to hit them I sometimes lose my target. There also won't be enough buttons to play fluidly on World of Warcraft although I haven't tried this mouse with it yet and likely won't until Warlords of Draenor comes out.I'm sticking with Anker products because they're affordable and seem to be good quality but I hope future models will have more buttons which are easier to get to.In fact if customer service is reading this please forward that to the designers of future products. =)

Thanks very much for the feedback, we'll see what we can do for the centre buttons on future iterations!

We do like to think we offer a great alternative to the giants of the gaming world like SteelSeries and Razer so that's fantastic encouragement for us to keep getting better and better.

The drivers are different and they will not work interchangeably.

The software is very similar though for programming buttons, creating macros and changing settings.

Help with laser

Hi I'm after abit of help , I hadn't been on my pc for a few days when I noticed that my accuracy when playing games had dropped it have checked my dpi settings and everything is the same but I did notice that the laser is not lit up any more could this be the problem cause I'm sure it was lit up when I first got it . Its on 6 months old

I think that it is infrared and isn't supposed to light up--I don't ever remember mine being lit. It does, however, give off a little glow that's from the lighting scheme. That might've been what you thought was the laser.

If your mouse is still functioning then it is unlikely to be a problem with the light sensor. Are you noticing a difference during non-gaming use?
