This mouse will work for left or right handed users and comes with a few customization options. Whether you want a thumb rest or not.. for either side. Weights can be added which may not be a drastic difference, but still helps cater to one's preference in a lighter or medium weighted mouse. Last customization option is the palm of the mouse can be lowered or raised... I guess this helps if you're a palm or claw user for the mouse? I still don't know what I am. The only negative for some might be that it's not as form fitting to the hand as some mice due to the ambidextrous design, but that hasn't bothered me.
Just like the G.Skill keyboard RGB features, software is... ok. It's not great, but once you figure it out the mouse looks great with the RGB zones. A nice addition to the G.Skill RGB keyboard.
As far as performance goes it's great for gaming. The only down side is it's better to use on a textile mouse pad. With a cloth mouse pad the sensor goes a little weird and you have to pick up the mouse off the mouse pad to get it back to normal.

It works for me and I grew to appreciate the two extra thumb buttons on the side, but the associated software felt kind of stiff. After 2 years some of the coating material has worn away in some places so now it doesn't look as clean. Basic RGB functions are better than nothing if that's what you like. At semi-rare times, the mouse freaks out and spasms in the middle of the screen for a few seconds.

from completed build Nick's first try at a build
Thought I would try out an RGB mouse, so purchased 2 weeks after the build. This mouse takes some getting used to, but has lots of features and lights up like the rest of the computer.
