  • Below Expectations
  • The Anker CG100 is an adequate gaming mouse, but it fell well below my expectations.I would like to preface this with an irritation that has nothing to do with the mouse itself but with the company that sells it. Within a week of delivery of the mouse, I received e-mail from Anker soliciting a review on Amazon. I ignored it because I refuse to review products like this I have not used extensively, both to judge their quality after some actual use through several situations and to have a better idea of how well the product handles use over time. Particularly with electronics, what appears to be a good product will turn out to be garbage within a month or so. Early reviews do not take this into account.That said, the Anker is not garbage by any stretch. As others have noted, it fits an average hand very well, and it alleviated some discomfort I was experience with my previous mouse that seemed designed more for visual aesthetics that comfort of use. The three side buttons were a nice feature that I could use to good effect in several games. The default setting for one of the buttons is as the Left-ALT key, which was confusing at first since it fell on my had at a location my muscle memory associated with the back button. This was easily resolved in a Windows environment via the utility software. If you use this in a Linux, machine, you just have to get accustomed to it being a Alt key, which I did eventually. The weight was good for me out of the box because I like lightweight mice, but for those wanting something a bit heavier, the options for weighting are all that you could ask for. Responsiveness was very good to excellent. You can change polling frequency and DPI with ease to suit your needs.The disappointments were primarily these:The software/driver is buggy. On more than one occasion in both Windows and Linux, the system stopped being able to read the mouse pointer location. Movement to the right would move the pointer that direction rapidly, after which it would snap back all the way to the left. Pointing at anything becomes impossible when this happens, and a reboot (using keyboard shortcuts if you know them or a hard reset) was required to reset it. This seemed to be cause by the driver, but it could simply be a bad mouse. Secondly, the configuration software itself sometimes crashed, especially when changing polling frequency. This too seemed driver related and would usually lead to the situation described above. I did not find a fix for this in the month or so I have used the mouse.Another main problem is a combination of shape and button placement. The default Macro-Record button rests at a place on the spine of the mouse that the back of my middle finger knuckle would accidentally press on occasion. Usually before I figured out I'd done this, a giant string of operations had been recorded, and inadvertently pressing the Macro button itself unleashed it all on my system. To stop this from happening I had to force-kill the process that drove it, again using keyboard shortcuts since the mouse was useless at the time, and that then caused the mouse to stop responding for several seconds.Finally, I dislike the mouse wheel a great deal. It feels "squishy" and is difficult to turn, particularly if your hand begins to sweat, which mine does when I am gaming. The wheel problem is what ultimately lead me to give up on this mouse.All that said, I do not hate the mouse. I ended up giving it to my mother, who is not a gamer, and she likes it fine, including the mouse wheel. Her fingers must be better designed for it or something.

  • great mouse
  • This is a great mouse. I've used a Logitech G700s at work for the past three months and now when I use my home computer I miss having programmable buttons. For $30 the Anker CG100 was worth trying. My first impression is that it stacks up to the G700 really well. The ergonomics of the CG100 are superior, the three side buttons line up comfortably above where my thumb cradles. It has fewer buttons but just enough to suit me. Anker's software is a bit less polished but does its job. The build quality of the CG100 feels more plasticky and lighter than the G700s, even with the weights in. The proof will be in how well it holds up over a couple years, but out-of-the-box the comfort and features of the Anker CG100 are a fantastic value.

  • Perfect for the price
  • It's a really solid mouse and much less expensive than some of the competition. If this were a $100 dollar mouse, id probably give it 4 stars, but seeing as the price per performance is so awesome, it easily gets a 5 star rating. If, however, you are looking for a very high end mouse, you'll need to spend more.

  • Overall it's a pretty good mouse
  • Overall it's a pretty good mouse. The sound isn't by any means quiet, but it's not really loud either. The buttons all worked as they should, and the ability to change dpi is nice. Personally I've kept it fairly low given how responsive it is, and I play everything from MOBA, to FPS, to general Action. It's unlikely you'll have any issues with performance.Just a few negative (not really negative) comments.1. The mouse while standing still will (every now and then) start to twitch on the screen. I've never seen this in game, but to be honest I'm constantly moving around so it's unrealistic that I would even notice. The quick fix is to unplug it, and then plug it back in. That seemed to clear it up real quick.2. Color settings on the mouse do not remain constant. You can save your profile in the mouse settings as many times as you like, but it won't actually take effect by itself when you turn on your computer each time. You'll need to change it each time, which is kind of pointless. I just leave it at red, which to be honest doesn't look all that bad.One final note is that the weights were really nice. Some people complained that it feels cheap. Once you have the weights it feels like a real hearty mouse. The weights also really help with the adjusting to the dpi. My suggestion would be to put them all in, and take them out as needed. I tried a few different arrangements, and I found that I liked them best when they were all in.

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.

Native DPI and polling rates
Hi guys, long time user of the Anker 8200.I've recently come up against almost unbearable mouse stuttering in game.Planetside 2, Payday 2, CSS, all that good stuff are seriously suffering.I want to reset to the native DPI and Polling rate. I've searched for a couple of hours now but no one actually seems to have a clue.I'm guessing a need to go back to native, then enable in game acceleration.Anker - gizza hand wouldja?

The basic functions will work on Mac but the drivers aren't compatible so you won't be able to use the programmable buttons.

Still unable to download 8200 Driver
I placed a call to ianker support to say that I was unble to download the driver for the 8200. They tried at their end and got it to work. I am able to download the 8000 driver so I have been using that instead. Still unable to download the driver. I've gotten server error, problem loading page, tried right-clicking save link as and got "The download could not be saved because an unknown error occurred"Tried in Firefox and Internet Explorer with the same results. Everything else downloads fine.With that minor gripe I will say this is a very nice mouse. It is comfortable in the hand and has great response. My only very minor complaint is the 4 button placement is very easy to hit on accident with my thumbnail.Please help with the driver issue though. I'm not sure if I should be using the 8000 driver for it but it works for now.

Mouse Malfunctoning.
It's been almost a year since I've been using your mouse. It's pretty impressive and I really like it. But since two days ago the mouse won't work. When I plug it in the mouse starts, my laptop recognizes it and I can make changes in my profile, all lights turn on and even I can change DPI settings directly from the mouse. The problem is it just won't move. laser sensor won't turn on and I can't use it in any way, rigth-left clicks doesn't work, any button for the matter of fact. I've checked for updates, drivers, everything that has come to my mind. Can you please PLEASE help me with this issue?

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

there are several x factors what os are you using version drivers, service pack updates, hardware, so it may not have been teh mouse you could have some rouge drivers messing things up. or a hardware issue like usb controller issues. so unless they sent you a replacement to try you can't be sure it was the mouse because mine works great. on windows 7 professional 64bit os. running on an hp elitebook 840 G1. with the intel core i5 and 4gb of ram. pretty fresh install so drivers are good.

also if it worked fine while you navigated to the anker webpage to download the file and clicked to download it and it didn't mess up untill you went to open the file it sounds like you might have some corrupted sections in teh harddrive. that is the first thing i would think ( also i work with computers for a living and have my a cert and in my second year of my computer science degree) but i would try going to start if using windows 7 or vista click the start menu. in the search bar type run. when the run window opens type "chkdsk" and hit enter and let that run and repair any issues and restart the computer.
