Default Gigabyte Ghost GM-M8000 Gaming Mouse Review Comment Thread

Recently we took a very close look at GB's "ghost" gaming mouse. Overall we were very imressed with this mouse as it is a very, very good mouse, but in the gaming arena it did not walk away a winner.

Click here to read our review of the Ghost: GM-M8000

Hope you enjoy it!

Interesting, I would probably buy it if I hadn't gotten a Deathadder on sale. What I'm curious about is if they have any of those Ghost keyboards left- with the mechanical key switches. I regret not coming onto the PC scene sooner and missing that while it was being distributed.

Never said is was unique ntydon. HOWEVER, it is impressive as most mice do NOT run at 1ms or less lag. in fact I have come across a few mice which claim 1ms and don't get anyhere near it (most were in the 1.1 - 1.3ms range). As with most things hardware related we here at HWC try and test everything to seperate the PR spin from facts. I agree that the G5 is a great mouse (prolly one of the best corded mice Logitech ever made) and it the one of the mice I too use for gaming. ;)
