    "Fire" button added extra button function

    Each button on Red Dragon M612 Predator mouse can be user configured for user selected custom function.

    This includes "Fire" button at left from left click can also be reconfigured for custom function.

    While M612 Predator has lower dpi than M711 Cobra, M612 Centrophorus2 lower DPI is almost as accurate as M711 Cobra.

    *RedDragon M612 Predator, M711 Cobra and Centrophorus2-M601 mice all require its own driver. If M612, 711 and M601 drivers are installed on same Windows PC, each Dragon Dragon mouse will show its own icon at Windows taskbar. M612 Predator driver is compatible with M11 Cobra. M612 Centrophorus2 mouse requires its own driver and cannot use M612 or M711 mouse driver.

    Bargain Killer Looking Mouse

    Easy to use, plug & play ability.

    Just had to make minor speed adjustments in the Mouse settings on my Mac. Only complaint is the cord snags sometimes but that’s the pro of a wireless mouse over wired. No true complaints though for the $17.99 price.

    Looks amazing with the alternating colors.

    Cool RGB, great feel, loud clicks, fast response time, and additional buttons on the side which are great for gaming. The mouse performs as good as you would expect it to considering its price.

    Your NEXT Replacement Mouse! BANG for BUCK


    Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you an excellent replacement mouse and intro gaming mouse for anyone looking to buy a mouse! It an instant upgrade for anyone not already in the gamer mouse market. Short and sweet, the G203 is a well-built fully customizable 6 button gaming mouse in a traditional and familiar form factor people already know. It is essentially a G203 Prodigy with improved RGB lighting now using LIGHTSYNC. If you have other LIGHTSYNC devices, this will just play with the others so nicely. Whether you are a gamer or have an office/home PC, this should be a contender for everyone's first replacement mouse. The RGBs make it a nice addition to any boring setup in the office or home and it can compliment your already awesome RGB gaming rig until you are ready to unload on your highly anticipated future mouse purchase. Build is one of solid black plastic construction with precision tension springs on the primary mouse buttons making it built to last. The mouse wheel is rubberized/textured while the roll is "clicky" but can be set to smooth if you like.

    **Even during this Covid-19 pandemic, this mouse has done a cool thing for my old son during this transition to online schooling - bringing me to my next point. The G203 is more than capable as a mouse including children and adults alike. My 6 yr old son is now more excited to get his online classes done in the mornings during these interesting times for a Kindergartener. He gets to use a COOL mouse that "has colors" and just is thrilled to do "school work". We literally just plugged it in and you get RGB color cycling to brighten things up. The familiar ergonomics combined with modern design and ease of use makes this a serious option for anyone in this competitive budget space.**

    Now, for the techy stuff like specs. Here are my notable boxes this mouse checked for me:

    -Beautiful RGB lighting

    -Ergonomics, aesthetics, and build quality

    -8000 DPI sensor and 1000Hz polling rate fully customizable in GHUB software

    -6 remappable/customizable button entry level gaming mouse w/ Long manageable cord

    -GHUB Mouse Calibration/Customization

    GHUB Software takes this otherwise basic mouse to the next level. The gamer-grade sensor offers fully adjustable sensitivity from 200-8,000 DPI and you pick the right level that fits your task. Create up to 5 presets you can cycle through at the click of a button. The G203 has fully customizable lighting effects you can add that final touch to. This is easily worth the price with all you get in this one little package.

    Basically…. this is a buy. Remember, you can always try these things out then if you don't like it BestBuy has a return policy so no need to be worried. Be safe and stay healthy!

    Classic Look and Feel backed by Modern Software

    The G203 LIGHTSYNC is a budget friendly mouse with a classic look and feel, backed up by modern G HUB software. It is dubbed a gaming mouse, but it doesn’t scream gaming whatsoever. Yet it is able to hold its own on the gaming front and still be a great daily driver for those that split their time with work and play. And it is priced right as you get a lot of value here.

    A few main hardware points...the mouse houses an 8000 DPI sensor, has mouse buttons that provide that “click” feedback (they call it Mental Spring Button Tensioning) and a light bar that supports the LIGHTSYNC ecosystem. The mouse has a total of 6 buttons.

    Aside from the hardware, the biggest drive to this mouse is its software. It seems to be the norm for most peripherals as you can do many things to customize your experience with it.

    The Great: I thoroughly enjoy the mouse click feedback. That is probably my most favorite aspect of the mouse. The mouse tracks fine, all the way up to 8000 DPI, but I never go past 3000 for my gaming/work use. The light bar, used in conjunction with LIGHTSYNC , is pretty sweet. I like how I can make the RGB sync up to what’s showing on my screen. They are very bright lights. Truth be told, this only really makes a visual impact when you’re looking at your PC setup from a distance. If you’re actually using the mouse, you won’t notice anything.

    The Okay: It does have classic ergonomics, and it may be a deal breaker for those that are used to their modern ergo mouse. I felt that the mouse somewhat lacked contours for hand support, as I’m used to having a mouse fit in the palm of my hand. I also thought it would have been a plus to add another DPI button so that I don’t have to cycle through my settings just to get to my sensitivity of choice. I also felt that the G HUB lagged in reporting when I switched from DPI to DPI.

    This is a really good gaming mouse for the price. It's very comfortable in the hand with individual grooves for both your ring and pinky fingers to rest on.

    Great mouse for the newer gamer!

    As a new to gaming person I wanted a cheaper mouse and mini keyboard. After researching all the websites I visited a local Best Buy and found this mouse on sale. As I didn't want to spend those "other" prices I went with the RedDragon brand mouse and mini keyboard.

    Excellent product(s) and the price cannot be beat!

    Very sturdy mouse with awesome lighting! I'm impressed and hope this brand continues to produce these products at the same prices!

    Would definitely recommend!

    Good low budget gaming mouse

    The Red Dragon Cobra M711 is a very interesting mouse in the sense that the clicks are fast, but depending on the game it might not be the best. Example: M711 is a good mouse for MineCraft because if you click faster you will perform better. But in a first person shooter game such as Call of Duty, you will probably not want high cps. It's a well made mouse in general. Even though the mouse is under $20, it performs and feels like a $30-$40 gaming mouse. Overall, if you have a lower budget, this mouse is a fantastic option!

    This was a review from my tween son who uses this mouse daily!

    First Gaming Mouse, Good Impression

    Gaming equipment doesn’t make sense to me and I know that I wanted to try some of it out. Mouse is pretty affordable, although the flashing rainbow lights can get annoying every now and then. Everything works fine; I don’t use the cursor sensitivity because I can’t do really sensitive with the cursor flying across the screen with a single shift.
