  • By far the best mouse I have ever owned
  • By far the best mouse I have ever owned. The setting are very flexible. With multiple options at the touch of a button. Some of the color schemes, for the mouse lights, is a little bit off. But other wise the mouse feels and handle exceptionally.

T. Shandor "Procurer of the odd"
  • A rollercoaster of dealing
  • I did a lot of research before I bought this mouse because I wanted to have a decent gaming mouse that could switch between DPI settings easily for gaming and for browsing. Well it is easy to do so. The 8200 DPI setting is really fast and I barely have to move my wrist to get anywhere. So why 2 stars? The Twitching. No matter what I am on (web page, selection area, even in game item areas) the pages twitch up and down at random times, mostly rapid and just enough to make selecting things nearly impossible. I'm going back to my old mouse (a non gaming trackball that has never failed me) until I can find something that doesn't spazz out like this (and yes I tried reinstalling drivers, cleaning the lens, etc). My husband is gonna tinker with it, so if we find a solution I'll update this review with an edit.EDIT: I uninstalled the drivers completely and BOOM the thing works again with no odd twitching and it retained my settings. So... The drivers from Anker are the problem. I do like this mouse a lot, and I'm glad right now that I didn't just bin it when it went wonky.

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.

neither driver nor the instruction manual is usable... if you can call them that. when one downloads the files, they are of no filetype and have no applicability to the mouse whatsoever. the mouse feels nice but has NO SUPPORTING DRIVER SOFTWARE to be provided. If this is not true please inform me. I am running Windows 7 64 bit.

Scroll wheel intermittant operation

Some times the scroll whell will advance two or three times then will stop working, other times it will not work at all. I really like my 8200 except for the scroll wheel problem. I have upgraded the driver from Anker's web site, please help.

Weird DPI/Sensitivity?

I switched to this mouse from a Deathadder 2013, and the DPI settings don't feel right. I am used to playing on 800 DPI with two different mice, a Razer Deathadder, and a Logitech G9X, and they both feel like they have identical sensitivity. With the Anker mouse, 800 DPI feels extremely slow, and not at all playable. Is there any way to match the sensitivity accurately? I was under the impression that DPI should have roughly the same sensitivity across different mice.

If possible, it would be nice if Anker could offer an update to the drivers to allow for a 1:1 sensitivity option.

Faulty mouse?

My cursor has just abruptly stopped working using the Anker 8200.  I have the Anker gaming mat, but the laser apparently won't work on it or the several other mousepads I own.  It'll work somewhat on the solid desk surface, however it still randomly sticks / freezes.  I've tried cleaning the mouse with microfiber cloth, but there's been no improvement.  It's also not my computer apparently, as the other mice I have lying around work without a hitch.  I've installed the Anker software as well, hoping perhaps it was a driver issue... and still, no dice.  It's become rather irritating, and I'm considering going back to Razer or Logitech.  Anyone had similar issues, and hopefully fixed them?

Best mouse for it's price!

I ordered this product one year ago and it has worked great ever since, used it in BF4 for more accurate sniping at very long range. I was able to insert a quarter between the cap and all six of the optional metal weights the item comes with; making it the perfect weight for my large hands. Keep up the good work Anker.
