I got my swiftpoint z as a birthday present in 2018/19 some time, I still have it and use it regularly, almost daily, as I have for the past couple of years. I use it mostly for gaming and I've played everything on it, it has always been perfect and all the extra functions have been useful at some point. Eventually I will need to replace it but a 2nd is a strong contender for its replacement. Highly recommend for anyone willing to pay it's admittedly high price, it is worth it, it'll last you a long time if treated properly. Have a great day/evening/night to anyone who reads this
The mouse market has become extremely boring. Swiftpoint Z is how you innovate.
The additional fingertip buttons redefine how you can use a mouse - they are actually convenient to use, and you WILL miss them if you go back to regular mice. Even if you don't care about gyro (which has legitimate uses even outside of gaming, i.e. switching to other input configurations with a flick of the wrist), this is the best mouse money can('t) buy.
Great mouse, Love the easy access to many, many buttons. Only "issue" I have is with not being able to select a dpi between the 100 increments it has. Again. Its not an issue in the sense of it being something wrong. Just personal preference kind of thing for gaming. Love the way it feels, and I recommend it to anyone I meet. Heck, only reason I am writing a review was because I am sending the link to this product to a few friends.
I have this mouse since 4 years and I had absolutely no hardware issue with it. Everything still works like in the first day.
The ONLY downside of the mouse is that a weak glue is used for the rubber pads and with time some might start to move or even fall off. It happened to me as well and I lost one during transport.
I have contacted customer support and within the next day I received a response and they offered to send a full replacement kit free of charge.
They won a customer for life for their amazing support and for making this amazing and unique product.
The software's flawless: expert mode works like a charm and it's never had a problem automatically selecting the correct config. Pressure sensitivity works well.
The M1/M2 button layout is pretty good. You can access both rows of buttons at the same time if you wish, though I usually just use my fingertips, even for the knucklebuttons.
This is the first mouse in decades that I could access the screws without tearing off the feet: the feet are attached magnetically via a plastic bar. I'm very confident I could fix this mouse myself if I have to.
Only issues I've found after hundreds of hours is that M1 wiggles slightly from side to side on press, M3 creeps when pressed, and the right side rubber texturing pad came undone when the glue failed and started to squeeze out. This hasn't affected me so far and is comparable how my older mice have gone. None of the special buttons are affected.
If the mouse was bombproof enough to avoid these issues, I'd be giving it 6 stars. Otherwise, it's merely the best build quality I've found so far.
