yeah w/ the m65, it was a pain in the ass, but i finally figured out how to permanently disable the lighting. Same w/ the Rii M01 i have it permanently turned off. and w/ both i don't even need the software after that. it saves it in the firmware. but for me they are the perfect sized mouse. also like the sniper button which is easier to accidentally press on the corsair. that said they are more aimed at FPS players. If you need 25 buttons on your mouse you would need to look elsewhere.Well theres some that want all this RGB craze and some don't really care...that said would like some of Logitech's new stuff.
yeah i have one of those in black. grab some clear(?) o-rings and it'll quiet it down a bit and and cushion the "bottom out". can't remember the ones i got but they ended up being the thick ones and i felt they could have been a hair thinner so try to grab the thinner softer ones tho if you can. (at the time i didn't know there was a difference) but it does makes a big difference imo.I am using the Eagletec KG011-RGB budget keyboard that has several manufacturers. I am very impressed with it. I had been using a box of 10 Internet KBs from Microsoft but moving up to a mechanical KB has been awesome. It uses the Outemu blue switches. I had thought of returning it and getting a KB with Cherry Blues, but it turns out I really like the feel of the switches and the keycaps, despite not being PBT. Plus you can just rinse it down apparently. For less than $50 couldnt recommend it more.

For years I was using a Logitech G15 v2 keyboard and a Logitech Performance MX mouse on top of a RatPadz. Over this summer, I decided to upgrade and replaced them with the following:
- Razer BlackWidow Elite with orange switches with the PBT keycap upgrade set
- Razer Basilisk Ultimate wireless mouse with charging dock
- Razer Firefly V2 mouse pad

Will do! I will post pictures later.I have a bit of an odd request but could you give a size comparison between the MX Performance and the Basilisk? If you could take pictures of them together I’d be even more grateful. I have been using several Performance MXs since they debuted. They are pretty much the largest competent mouse I’ve found (I have really freakishly large hands ) and have been searching for a replacement for a over a decade.

Just from a quick side by side:
Both are about the same width. The Razer is just a hair longer. Height, the Logitech has a slightly higher hump towards the rear that forces your hand to sit further back on the mouse. The Razer's hump is a little flatter so your hand sits more on top. This will give the appearance that your fingers reach closer to the edge of the buttons on the Razer mouse versus the Logitech, but it just really comes down to how it positions the palm. The left button on the Logitech appears longer than on the Razer due to this as well, but they are really about the same length. However, the right button on the Razer is definitely longer than on the Logitech. My middle finger reaches or extends slightly beyond the right mouse button on the Logitech whereas on the Razer it does not.
The thumb rest on the Logitech is more recessed than the Razer but both are deep enough to accommodate my thumb without it falling off the mouse.
The Logitech has more heft coming in at 170g on my food scale. The Razer comes in at 108g, less than two-thirds the weight of the Logitech. Each have their pros and cons because of this. There are days I wish for the heavier weight of the Logitech but then there are days where the lightweight of the Razer works better for me. Shame it didn't have an option to add weights to it like some older mice had, then it would be able to achieve the best of both worlds.
Keyboard = Corsair K70 (Cherry MX Red switches)
Mouse = Steel Series Sensei Raw
Purchased for New Build:
Razer Black Widow Elite (Razer Green switches)
Razer Naga Trinity
I haven't used Razer products in over a decade and avoided them as overpriced. Best Buy had deals on them that made them the best value this time around, on paper anyway. We'll see how it goes. I hope their software has gotten better since I last used it.
