I got this Havit Gaming Mouse to replace a broken Steel Series mouse that my cat (not a pun) decided to chew on and destroy. I have to say, this mouse feels like I paid 4x what I did for it.
It has a nice heavy feel to it (they must have added a little ballast because it feels quite solid) and the side buttons (I use those a lot for FWD and BACK navigation on web pages) are actually placed up high enough that I don’t hit them by accident. Unlike the much more expensive Steel Series mouse. I was always hitting the back button by accident with that one.
I don’t go in for silly flashing Led’s that draw attention for no purpose other then to draw attention to itself. I do wish I could change the breathing colored Led to solid on. But after testing out the sensitivity settings, I do like the different colors to tell me which setting I’m using.green is just about perfect for working in a document.
Yellow lets me jump quickly across multiple monitors. The most sensitive setting (red) is definitely high precision and probably higher than I want and the highest speed (pink) is probably faster than I ever want so this tells me it’s able to give me a good working range of settings. Green is the third setting and the one I like the most so I think we are right in the sweet spot so that’s good.

Mouse middle scroll wheel does the job quite nicely. The indents there to give you a positive feel for each notch you roll the wheel, but smooth and quiet. They could have a little more positive notch to it if you wanted to make a “perfect” mouse because it does feel a bit mushy, but that’s if you want me to be super-picky…the wheel does the job.
The cord even has a fine over braiding on it. It does give it a bit of a premium feel. Who knows if it really helps or not. There’s also an actual ferrite on the USB end that’s to reduce the EMI. That’s another area that ultra cheap accessories always skimp.
You may never notice that little detail, but if you’ve ever had a PC or laptop that had a strange buzzing in the speakers when you moved your mouse that missing ferrite is the reason.

Only con is I wish I had gotten it earlier. So far, I’m liking it better than the $40 mouse it replaced! I got mine for just under $8, if you need one then you should probably get one before the price goes up because it’s worth more than I paid. Having said that, I just hope it lasts a while…if it dies on me I’ll come back and update this review.
So far I’ve only been using this for a day. I paid $10 for it and I am very impressed. I am a semi competitive gamer (platinum 3 in heroes of the storm). My two main mice are a Razer Deathadder 2012 and a Razer Deathadder 2013.
I bought this mouse because I needed a cheap gaming mouse for when I travel. Out the box the build quality feels great. The click on all 5 buttons feels quality. The scroll wheel is very smooth. The plastic feels a little on the cheaper side BUT it is not that far from feeling really nice. Not having to install extra software is awesome.
It has a soft branded cable. If I had to blindly guest the price of this mouse only feel and usage alone I would have guessed $25-35. The big question is how long will this mouse last. We will have to wait and see. So far I’d say it is worth a shot for a sub-$10 mouse. Just for comparison, this thing feels far better than the sub-$20 dell/logitech mice you buy from a bestbuy.
Decided to use this mouse as my main mouse at work. I love it. Been using it everyday for 5 days and during our lunch heroes games. Feels as good as my 2012 Razer Deathadder. Note I normally set the dpi on my Deathadder to 3100.
I love the mouse so far and its price being around $10. My fingers are thin and long, so the mouse size is great. My thumb rests comfortably under the 2 side mouse buttons.
The scroll wheel has that soft ‘clickety-bump’ mechanism like turning through notches kind of feeling that I am familiar with. It helps me get a feel of how far I scroll for each notch. The dpi changing button has never been accidentally pressed since my fingers are arched over it to press the LMB/RMB.
When color-coded lights are very neat. Clicks are loud. I bought this mouse because my old one simply stopped responding at random moments. This mouse has helped me play Overwatch a lot better and finally feels like something I can invest into muscle memory.
My current thought is wondering how long this mouse will last. I’ve been using it for almost a month, and it seems solid. My expectation for any mouse is for it to last at least 3-5 years.
Main thing I take issue with, when I use this mouse, is my inability to alter the DPI button to change between two specific settings that I may have use for in a game, or other such functions. Relatively, this is a small complaint. For the price I have paid, my mouse works like a charm, gets the job done, and is ergonomically sound.
This might not be the mouse you’re looking for if you want all the bells and whistles, but if you’re a gamer like me who prefers to keep his devices simple, I am thoroughly satisfied with what I got. My Havit mouse was an outstanding value buy.
Question:How long is the cable?
Answer:i would say about 70 inches. its kinda long
By Edgar N. on April 7, 2016I don’t know exactly, but it’s long enough that on a laptop I have to keep it mostly coiled up. On a desktop I would be able to use it comfortably with it reaching behind and under the desk to attach to the computer.

Answer:The scroll wheel has minimal resistance to movement. You can feel the detent engage but the sound made is quiet.
By K. Bassett on May 30, 2016To me I would describe it as soft to medium. Scrolling wheel made noise so i returned it.
By HT on June 2, 2016I would say it is soft to click
