DO NOT go buy one. If you really want one, I suggest waiting for generation 2 or three (if there is one). Maye they'll fix the damn thing.I saw them at Blizzcon also and was "meh" but my wife ended up getting one for me for X-mas anyway.What a piece of garbage. I had the stuck mouse1 button issue also. Once I'd press it down, it wouldn't come back up unless I psycally lifted it up with my fingernail.The fix they told me didn't fix anything so I just asked to RMA it back to them. They told me it was a "known issue" so I assume they've gotten a ton of complaints.The build is terrible. It's a giant plastic mess. The mouse 4 and 5 buttons wouldn't bind to anything. In game, the buttons were all bound to things you don't really need them to access quickly on a mouse but trying to re-bind them seemed to screw other things up.The software is horrible. I could not copy and paste my pre-made macros into their macro-maker as it wants to record every single keypress (so trying CTRL-V would not work and right click and paste wont either).I tried to make a forum post on the regular WoW forums about some of these issues but it got deleted by a mod. It wasn't even a flamefest. Seems Blizzard doesn't want legitimate criticism.I wish they'd partnered with Logitech. I've always had great stuff from them.I'll never buy anything else from Steelseries again.

They did fix the problem with the mouse 4 and 5 buttons with new drivers. That sucks about the forum post.
