If you can boot into safe mode and see if the problem happens there, if it doesn't than its likely a software issue.

Has this issue ever come up?

Q: I have an issue with a ôsticky button" on my World of Warcraft MMO Gaming Mouse, what should I do?

A: Over the course of the past month we've discovered a higher than acceptable return rate on the WoW MMO Gaming mouse. The problems were found within a limited number of manufactured units from the first batch of production.

A process has been established to expedite the replacement of any affected devices in a quick, simple and painless manner - either through the place of purchase or through the SteelSeries website.

Don't we wish that all manufacturers were as forthcoming as this? Not only do they publicly admit that there is an issue, they've set up a process to deal with it as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Everybody has an off day (or a bad product). How it is dealt with makes or breaks a companies reputation.

They were Sold out of the WOW mouse so they graciously exchanged it for the IKARI.Not as good but he"s happy never the less.

I like the Ikari better than the WoW mouse personally. It tracks like a dream.

That is what you say now. Wait till you actually try an Ikari Laser. My G5 now sits in my closet as a spare. The Ikari is the most comfortable mouse I've used. And having the mouse configuration set at a hardware level (saves settings directly to the mouse) no need for drivers after that, is such a great idea.

best. mouse. ever.

I have heard good things about the WOW mouse generally. It has an insane number of buttons for macros. But for a non-MMO mouse I would definitely not buy it.

Default gah

I just received my SS Wo.W mouse and i am having some issues with it.
I had one on order for 6 months up here in Canada, but found it on a shelf in the states over the weekend.

I'd read the poor reviews, but wanted to satisfy my curiosity after all this time, so I disposed of some disposable income and picked one up.

For starters my buttons feel like they're made out of cheap ass plastic, as in really cheap ass for the $ i paid..WTF?!?

It gives me the tingles in my fingers and i thought i had a major issue with RSI after playing for 5 hours straight but no, apparantly it's some issue where there's electricity being leaked out onto the chasis. I want to return mine but their tech support hasn't gotten back to me. So much for money well spent.

I think im going to hit up a G5 or the mamba, which is kinda too expensive. there's even a bunch of guys suing blizzard for it.. petitiononline.com/wowmouse


seems like there's so much complaints about the mouse in every forum i searched for. wtf
