not bad..I rather think it's a knock off of the CM sentinel(I'm biased I know :lol: ) but not bad.

you'd be amazed how many PR's have typos... Not that LR's articles are perfect, but when million dollar companies can't spell right it makes us look better.

And at least articles can be fixed, but a slide? You know there's probably the ONE guy who was tasked to do those slides and he's face-palming right now

The problem lies in its lubrication, and can easily be fixed temporarily by using it very heavily rolling it back and forth for a few seconds. This quick fix only lasts for about 10hrs. I have yet to take the mouse apart to look at how the wheel is attached and if it can be repaired permanently with better grease, but I will update in the forum post when I do.
Good day Apoptosis! Any update on this yet?

You'd have to ask Skier that one as I didn't do this review or ever use this mouse!
