I bought one a few weeks ago. After watching the little demo I had become quite enamored with it. Originally I was skeptical, 15 buttons seemed like a lot, and I honestly didn't see where they went on the mouse. The promise of Mac support only helped fuel that want. The overall look of the mouse was a factor too. It took a week or so of searching but an EBgames near me finally got them in so I picked it up. The mouse didn't, and still doesn't yet, support my Mac mini out of the box, so I did a little google search for something that'd help the wait. Found a program called ControllerMate. Took a few minutes to figure out how to get it to work, but once I did everything was working perfectly. I've been using it for about a week now with no problems other than controllermate occasionally stop working.I do have a few qualms. The mouse doesn't seem to actually be covered in steel, rather plastic that looks like steel. It doesn't feel like steel, doesn't have the cold touch when you use it for the first time in a day like you'd expect. Both a good and bad thing I suppose, but I feel a bit cheated out of that. It's also very light, which might not necessarily be a bad thing, however I've grown very used to heavy mice over there after using first the Logitech MX1000 for several years, then a Lemon of a MXRevolution, and finally a Logitech G9 with all of the weights in it. It took a while to get used to the very light weight, but it's perfectly fine now. The actual shape of the mouse is a little strange, especially after so many years of using Logitech's Ergonomically designed mice. Again, takes some getting used to, but works after a while. The main problem I have is with two of the buttons on it, the ones on the right side of it. They're small, and pushed towards the very front of the mouse. They're not particularly easy to get to, so I don't use them often. Had they been pushed back closer to your hand they'd be perfectly placed and would likely be used all of the times. All of that being said, I do quite like the mouse. It took a day of getting used to, but the buttons are really quite nice once you've got them set up, and it just looks damn awesome.
