Saitek GM2400 Laser Mouse ReviewPropane - March 8, 2008

Mice are one device that is more about user preference than about actual stats. If you really love that five year old mouse that has a dirt outline of your hand, you probably don't see a need to upgrade to a newer mouse. However, in the past few years, mice have gotten laser engines, more buttons, and ergonomic improvements. This can be a good reason for getting a new mouse, but if the mouse you get doesn't feel good in your hand, you probably will never want to use it. The GM2400 has exactly this problem. The tacky feel of the plastic and placement of the side buttons just make me dread using it. If you hold it the wrong way, you are likely to start pressing buttons you don't mean to. While the GM2400 has a pretty good stat sheet with 2400 adjustable on-the-fly DPI, a laser engine, and an ergonomic design, it does not seem to matter once you get this mouse in your hand.
- Up to 2400 DPI
- Resolution adjustable on the fly
- Not comfortable; feels "tacky"
- Inconvenient side button placement
- Lack of documentation on how to use software
