Can I use this mouse for anything other than gaming, or is it gaming only?

it works for anything, but its better than your standard mouse so it will be a lot smoother and more responsive

be wary, this mouse is known to have a problem where when you lift it up the cursor jumps to the bottom right of the screen. this can be a huge problem when gaming.

Gaming only...will not work on Windows machines. Can't be used with Word or Notepad either.

I use one of their other models for non-gaming purposes and it's a beautiful specimen.

Using a Razor I bought on a Wootoff a year or so ago. I don't game, I justr wanted a good mouse. You don't need to use these just for gaming, but you do need to check the DPI settings. I used the recommended setting (1800 DPI?) and it's fine.

Lotsa stuff...

Don't listen to this drivel. It will work perfectly fine with all OS and applications that use a mouse.

They're also pretty tough- it's fallen on the floor a lot and I've never had a problem with it.

w00t-offs used to be fun. Ever since the advent of Amazon (and I really WAS waiting for the w00t IPO), they've sucked.

As for this mouse...might as well call it the "impersonator," rather than the Imperator. Been there, done that.

These mice are always wootoff killers, but how do you kill a wootoff that's already dead?

Yes, I use a Razer Diamondback gaming mouse works great on all functions and does work on Windows. I Wooted this mouse in May 2008 and its still going strong, best mouse I've ever had.

Just curious...what exactly did Woot do differently before Amazon? Leak Frogs and Sansas?

This mouse has a known defect, and the company won't acknowledge it. It contains not only horizontal (X) and vertical (Y) sensors, but also a third sensor (Z) to tell it when you've lifted the mouse off the pad. There's a problem, however, with the Z axis sensor that causes the mouse to go dead suddenly, and unexpectedly.

Google 'razer imerator disconnects' or 'imperator stops working' and you'll see forums across the Web full of people complaining that the Razer Imperator seems to disconnect itself from the PC at random intervals. You have to unplug it and plug it back in and pray doing that works; otherwise you have to cold reboot to get the computer to sense the damn thing again.

DO NOT BUY,

Someday, on my deathbed, I'm sure I'll mutter something like, "I wish I'd spent more time on Woot waiting for Bags of Crap."

Argh, it's horribly comforting when you actually need something and it comes up on a woot-off.

Almost feels like I'm being dishonest...

In for 1.

Nope, It can only be used for Ubuntu Command Line.

No, if the mouse detects you aren't gaming, or that you aren't an overweight teenage boy without a girlfriend, it will cease to function.

The forums were fun. You're actually talking to the original w00t goddess, and we accumulated quite a few, back when it was almost all high school or college boys. It used to be SO much fun...they used to let us post pics, flirt, be funny, etc.

Thanks, Amazon, for ruining a good thing.

If you think you need a gaming mouse, you should review the definition of "need".

BTW, you joined before myself, so if you'd been in the forums then, you wouldn't be asking me. It really used to be fun in here.

For the record, I've had around 36 randoms...I actually got a roomba in one and an HP printer in another, plus a LOT of fun toys. Ever since w00t joined with Amazon, though, it's not even worth trying. The last one I got had hanging strawberry planters. Rly? Srsly?

The mouse SUCKS.

DO NOT BUY IT. I got one last woot-off. It lasted 4 days with having to plug and un-plug it before finally stopping working completely.

Worst mouse I ever bought.

I'm considering suing them under defective design theory because after researching online, this is a VERY COMMON problem that the sales rep I spoke with did not acknowledge as existing.
