Seems to have good reviews. There's also the G400s for a few bucks more:

Razer gear is awful.

Just get yourself a logitech.

This right here. Not only is it a fantastic mouse, but Logitech's warranty is amazing. My brother messed up the rubber feet on the bottom of his G400. He contacted customer support, and they sent him a G400s and he got to keep the G400.

If it's not a Deathadder it has a flawed sensor and will not be good for FPS.

Studies show this mouse has 1% acceleration, and .25% smoothing, even when turned off.

Instead get a mouse with a flawless sensor.

I don't like it but when its like .5% like some laser sensors, its something you can easily get used to/overlook without worry.

The whole it needs to be optical and have 0 this or that is so overblown amongst fanatics its insane.

It deftly does make a difference when you're playing an FPS game that requires you to aim precisely every time.

The acceleration never changes... You can get used to what speed of movement correlates to whatever degrees. Yes its an extra variable but its not some random addition. So now speed of movement needs to be accounted for and with time, muscle memory will take just as it would with a perfect sensor.
