I feel like those buttons near the mouse wheel would get accidentally pressed when cycling the mouse wheel. Which might make normal operation awkward.

I agree with that... But it has great reviews and does look pretty comfortable. Also thats a decent price too. Why do you need so many buttons on your mouse anyways?

well the buttons on the side would be good on call of duty 4, for like grenades, switching weapons. but seems like people think it will be easily pressed. so not sure if i should get one now

I got the MS intellimouse with a button on either side. It does get annoying accidentally pressing either of the side buttons. I'm sure that goes for any mouse. I wouldn't get something with 8 buttons... 4 is enough for me.

Yea actually now that I think about it my friend had one with 8 buttons and i always remember on counterstrike i would always hit the wrong buttons on accident and nearly threw it about 7 times because it was wireless... It is extremely comfortable tho.. Who knows tho you could always like it and get use to it.. Its worth a shot i think tho
