    Thanks for the review Fred. I was gonna look into getting one of these mice, and the fact that it is blue (my favorite color) was a nice sticking point. However, if its herky-jerky in windows environments and games, its definately not worth using. My compaq optical mouse is better than this.

    I have this mouse and I have no real issues with the tracking. I also haven't experienced any stalling, maybe it's the particular sample you used.

    Previously I owned a Logitech MX518 gaming mouse which i loved, but thought i'd try this out when I gave my MX518 to a friend. I also got this for a bargain at $25 CDN.

    My Battlefield 2 stats went up, particularly in Accuracy % and Kill/Death ratio: stats with the two different mice:

    MX518:

    1.86 K/D ratio, 24% Hit Accuracy
    (http://www.bf2stats.nl/player/74042707/)

    OCZ Equalizer:

    2.04 K/D ratio, 27% Hit Accuracy
    (http://www.bf2stats.nl/player/135236671/)

    My old 400dpi standard optical mouse:

    1.6K/D, 21% hit accuracy
    (http://www.bf2stats.nl/player/62039197/)

    WarEagle, you shouldn't judge a product on just one review... There are tons of other reviews for this mouse btw.

    Also, it did take atleast 2 or 3 weeks to get used to the change in feel... so it's important to thinnk whether a lot of these reviews have spent enough time with a device to fully become comfortable with it, and not carry over their assumptions of how it should feel vs. their previous device of choice.

    I hate to bump an old thread but does anybody know if OCZ finally released Windows 7 x64 drivers for the OCZ Equalizer Gaming Mouse?

    Also just a note, I had my first one break on me and without question OCZ replaced it with a sealed brand new one. Love the 6 year warranty they offer.

    I’ve never experienced any tracking problems with this mouse, it performs really good in games such as Left 4 Dead 1 & 2, FarCry2, Crysis 1, 2 & 3 etc.
