Here's some interesting information that the gaming community needs to know about this mouse, coming from someone with far too much knowledge about gaming mice (and partnerships with the companies that make the laser and optical sensors).

First and foremost, these "Cheap Chinese Mice" that get rebranded as MSI, Logitech, and whoever are really the same internals. What it really boils down to are the goodies inside. A mouse is a very simple peripheral that can be put into a few categories, which I will review individually.

Switches, Sensor, Driver, Form, Aesthetics, and Other.

Switches:
This mouse uses really nice Omron switches. When it comes to long-life, good-quality switches, Omron is pretty much the king. Omron makes industrial switches, but also really high performance switches that go into things like gaming mice. These switches have very high precisions of actuation, meaning the amount of force required to press and trigger the switch is very precise. It also means that these mice are going to last through a lot of those games, whether you're playing an FPS or pushing it to the limit in a game like Torchlight.

Sensor:
There are two reigning champs in sensors. Avago and Philips. Avago makes incredibly good optical sensors and Philips is known best for their dual laser sensors. Both make really great sensors. This mouse has the highest DPI Avago sensor to date, which means that you could crank the DPI to an insane level and have incredibly precise tracking. For things like an FPS, this is pretty important. I want to say that not everyone needs this high DPI. It's just a very nice to have in such a cheap mouse.

Driver:
Some mice don't have drivers. In fact, most mice are simple HID (Human Interface Devices) and never get anything but a generic driver. So why is there a whole section for drivers? Well it does really matter on a mouse that has a bunch of buttons. These buttons have to be programmed and it matters if this programming is on the mouse or on the computer. Redragon was nice enough to have some onboard storage on the mouse so that when I configure this mouse, I can take it to any computer, plug it in as an HID, and use it with all of my profiles without setting up the driver. Nice! The drivers themselves are really nice, install quickly, save profiles one the mouse, can save them externally, have lots of configuration options. It very will thought out. The RGB lights on the mouse can be custom set, custom DPI modes can be set, every button on the mouse can be rebound to something else. Overall, they did an excellent job and I don't have a single complaint about the drivers.

Form:
The mouse itself is very ergonomic, whether you're a palm gripper or more of a claw gripper like myself. The side buttons are really nicely placed. For my claw grip, I usually only press the bottom two side buttons and the top one is reserved for some other action I don't want to do on accident. If you're a palm gripper, the middle button is going to line directly up with the ball of your thumb and you're going to have full access to all buttons.
The entire mouse is coated in a nice textured polymer that gives an excellent grip. It also gives more feedback for when I'm touching a button, as opposed to the rest of the mouse since they are different textures.
The adjustable weights are a very nice touch. I prefer my mouse to be a bit lighter, so I only have 3 of the weights in. Someone who prefers a heavier mouse or who is used to a wireless mouse may want all of the weights in.
This mouse also has side rests for my ring and pinky, which I hope is becoming more of a trend. My last mouse also had this, and I'm glad to have another with this form. I do hope there's a lefty version of this mouse, but for someone who's definitely a dedicated righty, it's nice to have a mouse that fits my hand for long use.

Aesthetics:
I like this little mouse. The red is a nice touch because it does add a splash of color. Being able to change the center "breathing" light color is also very nice for indicating special profiles. The mouse wheel will change color with profiles, the up and down arrows will change colors with DPI switches, and overall I really do like the looks of this mouse. I've never been a huge fan of some mice, namely the R.A.T. and some of the Razer mice, but this one is actually pleasant on my desk. It also has a red braided cable that gives a bit of color all the way back to my computer.

Other:
There are some things that don't fall into the other categories, so they fall into the "other" category! The USB plug is a bit large. If it's plugging into a laptop, it'll stick out pretty far, but it's nice that it's not going to break off and that it's easy to remove. As mentioned before, the cable is braided, which is really nice. It's not a removable cable. Some people call that a con, I count it as a huge pro because I never want my cable detaching mid game. Redragon was nice enough to send replacement teflon feet for the mouse because they assume you're going to game hard and wear them out. It has an 18 month warranty, which is unusual. It's not long or short, it's just unusual to be a year and a half. They do make other mice, too! If you're looking at mice, look at their other ones, too, you may find one that suits you more. I've actually purchased two mice from them because they suit two purposes. One is an MMO mouse and the other is for FPSs. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with this find. I do highly recommend this and their other mice because they're really well crafted and well thought out.

This is a very early, initial review after using the M801 Mammoth for a couple of hours.

I'm coming from a Logitech G400, and two different MX518's prior to that. Overall, I'm very pleased with the mouse so far.

1. Size, Grip, Comfort (5/5) -- I have fairly large hands, and this mouse fits beautifully. I like the contouring and the slightly rough texture around the grip surface. If you have smaller hands, this may feel a bit unwieldy, but for normal-to-largish grip sizes, this feels great. I tested it with the full weight added, then removed a couple of weights to see the difference, and immediately put the full weights back in. Even with the full weights in, the Redragon M801 is still lighter than my G400 was, so I figured I'd leave it as-is. Really, this thing feels like a dream.

Be advised that this is NOT contoured for left-handed mouse usage. If you're a lefty, you'll want to look elsewhere.

2. Software and programmability (5/5) --- Took me all of 5 minutes to get my DPI and mouse click presets back the way I like them. I LOVE the fact that I can have 5 different button profiles for different application uses.

3. Click reaction/sensitivity (4.5/5) ---- All of the buttons feel solid and responsive, really like it. My only real complaint is that the mouse scroll "click" feels just a tiny bit more mushy than I might like, but really it's a minor quibble, and more a personal preference thing. The thumb button closest to the front of the mouse does feel a bit farther forward than is really comfortable to get to, but the thing has nine buttons, and I rarely use more than 4. The programmability and comfort of the mouse more than make up for any complaints I might have.

4. Motion (5/5) --- Wow. Just wow. Coming from a G400, there was an immediate, noticeable difference in the fluidity and responsiveness. It really feels great.

5. Overall value (5/5) --- Truthfully, when my G400 started randomly disconnecting and reconnecting one me, I dreaded getting a new mouse. I'm to the point now where I don't do a ton of gaming, but when I do game, I want to have a good, consistent mouse to get me through my forays into Left4Dead and Assassin's Creed. I really didn't want to spend $50 or $60 (or more) for a gaming mouse, when my needs truly are minimal --- 4000 dpi with programmable intervals, 4-5 buttons, overall comfort. I was *THIS* close to dropping $60 on the Logitech G502 Proteus, when I saw Amazon ads for Redragon mice. After exploring 4 or 5 different Redragon models, the reviews were all consistently high, and the M801 seemed a perfect fit --- and all for only $26.

If my opinion changes, I'll definitely come back and update this review, but for now, this looks like a fantastic purchase.

*UPDATE 7/6/2018* --- Everything in my original review still holding true. Still absolutely love this mouse, would recommend to anyone looking to get an excellent gaming-grade mouse without shelling out extra $$ for Logitech or Razer.

 Finally, a wireless gaming mouse that's rechargeable, RGB, also with a budget price. Coming from the Redragon Griffin mouse, this one is a huge improvement in the ergonomics but still has much to desire. It can be on the more round and wide size and often times my ring and pinky fingers just slips right off when I reposition the mouse. No complaints on the dpi adjustment and scrolling, the side buttons on the other hand, I disagree with the first button being "L Shift" then the ones above being the "Back" and "Forward" causing me to stretch just for the forward button. The placement is other wise perfect just above your thumb rest. I never found a use for the "fire button" and polling being adjusted from the bottom is okay. I wish I could remap these buttons, but the software drivers don't appear on the website to download.

Battery life is Great and the included USB-C charger means your can use it both wired and wireless. Very clear on charging with light indicators. The wireless receiver is well... a receiver, it works.

The RGB is colorful, and bright, the placement being on point, no hot spots, overall good. Can't change it without the software so its stuck on the rainbow affect. (Edit) With the software you can only change to outer edges to a static color. The Logo can cycle through colors but it isn't very bright. Last the scroll wheel only lights ups to indicate the charging level.

The build quality of this mouse is fairly plastic, much like the other Redragon mouses but still sturdy. The rubber feet on the bottom, again much like their other products, its okay.

Overall at $40 this is a great budget gaming mouse like many of their product, My only issue was the lack of software put a limitation on my overall comfort.

Update: As of 10/26/2019 the software is now available on their website!

This is my second M801 Mammoth mouse. The first one suffered a mortal cut to the cord when it got caught in the keyboard tray metal slide rails, I'm guessing. Whatever cut it was very sharp. Come to think of it, my wife has some pretty sharp crafting tools AND really dislikes me playing World of Tanks, SM Civilization, FO4 and PUBG. Hmmm.

The shape of the mouse allows my fingers to grasp it well without growing tired trying to hold it in my palm. The truck bed liner type texture also helps with the grip. It is not a heavy mouse, nor light weight. The buttons are positive and quick. The scroll wheel is not prone to continued spinning if quickly worked. It has nicely, positive positions for the wheel. The movement is precise and doesn't jump around like cheaper laser mice.

For the price, it bats way above it's class. Does it compete with Corsair or Logitech gaming mice? Nope. Are 90% of gamers going to play to the potential of those other $100+ mice? Nope.

I normally like to try new things, so the fact that I bought another one of these mice gives you a pretty good idea that I was more than satisfied with the M801.

My DeathAdder 3G had been acting up on me for the past couple years and despite my attempts as resuscitating it (tried using compressed air on click switches as well as doing a 'scotch tape trick' on scroll wheel), the unit finally stopped working. My problems with this mouse at the end of its life were that 1) a click would sometimes register an additional click - making me accidentally open files when I wanted to just select them. This made dragging files around really frustating. 2) The scroll wheel would also randomly insert an upward scroll movement in the middle of a down scroll - which would make viewing webpages and documents a chore.

My requirements for a new replacement were that 1) I wanted a mouse with good switches (preferably Omron) to avoid the double click problem. 2) A scroll wheel that would smoothly scroll and was of solid construction to not end up w/ the same scroll problem. 3) A mouse that could entirely turn off its LED lights as I have my desktop in my bedroom and prefer to have no external lights.

I ended up trying several off of YT Rocket Ninja's Top 10 Mouse list. Although I do not game very much anymore, I figured a mouse that could survive the rigors of heavy gaming would be of higher quality than other office mice and would thus last longer and provide better feedback. Here are my thoughts on various mice that I tried and the Logitech G Pro which I finally ended up getting. (I tried each mouse for about a month to give me time to form a proper opinion.)

Redragon M801 Mammoth - This mouse was the first candidate that I tried based off of Amazon's recommendation list. It had a really nicely textured mouse surface and the clicks were really crisp (Omron switches). The mouse was of a comfortable size for my hand and the cord was a nice braided one. It really was a quality piece and the price was by far the cheapest out of any of these other mice ($28). The software was also really light compared to the Razer Synapse software which seemed to want to update every 2 days. My main problem with this mouse was that you could only turn off the LED lighting to the wheel and dpi switches, and not the giant slash and side trim pieces. I did however find a YouTube tutorial that showed how you could unscrew the assembly through the weight compartment to pull the internal connector to disable the lights but did not want to go with the hassle). For people that don't care about the LED lights and/or on a budget, I would actually give this a 4* recommendation.

Logitech G403 Prodigy - The next mouse I tried was the G403 after discovering Rocket Ninja's YouTube page. This was his #1 selected mouse so it was a good next choice. I learned that having the distinctly separate mouse buttons from the chassis aided in the longevity of the click buttons (The DeathAdder 3G had the buttons integrated in the overall shell of the body). Unfortunately, I found the mouse wheel to be much looser than my original DeathAdder as well as the Red Dragon and decided to return this mouse and look for alternatives. (3.5*)

Razer DeathAdder Elite - I went with the DeathAdder Elite after my experience with the G403. Being a more expensive version of the original DeathAdder and also scoring high on the Rocket Ninja list, I thought that being done with this process and getting the updated version might be my final answer. The mouse was almost identical to the DeathAdder I had before with better mouse texture and lighter clicks. Unfortunately, it just felt like the old DeathAdder I had in nicer packaging. I strongly believe that in a few years, I would have ended up with the same problems as much current DeathAdder mouse. I also felt that it did not warrant the more expensive price point of $67. For a $40 mouse, it would be okay. For a $67 mouse, it felt cheap. And with mixed reviews and Razer's reputation of having products which do not last, I also ended up returning this. (3*)

Nixeus Revel - Next was the fairly inexpensive Nixeus Revel. It was the first software-less gaming mouse that I tried and it had several really high points and one serious low point. I found the product to be fairly sturdy, the buttons and mouse wheel were really good. This mouse was the first one thus far to not have an LED built into the wheel assembly itself and I felt this added to the build quality of the assembly (solid block of plastic vs hollowed out wheel w/ a light). The downsides: If you left the mouse alone and let the screensaver turn on, the mouse would also "fall asleep". Clicks would not be responsive, and the scrolling would automatically switch to the lowest DPI setting. I found that if I switched DPIs, all these symptoms would be alleviated - but again, it was a really weird problem to have. Other reviewers noticed the same. Also, LED lights could not be turned off. (3*)

Logitech G Pro - Lastly, I arrived at this mouse. It had good build quality with the Omron switches and even came with a braided cord. It also had the separate buttons from main mouse body and a non lit mouse wheel. LEDs were also programmable to be completely turned off. I feel that this mouse really met all my mousing requirements and should definitely be on your short list as well. (5*)

I owned a very similar version of this mouse that was wired-only, the MSI Interceptor DS200. It's been my favorite mouse for a while now, and I wished there were a wireless version. Behold, the Redragon M801P-RGB Sniper Pro.

Now, this fooled me at first, because I thought it was an MSI product, seeing as how they both feature a red dragon as their mascot. However, totally different company, identical build. This of course, led to some driver issues.

Their website shows the mouse, but no driver is available at the time of writing. However, I was able to contact the seller here on Amazon and obtain the driver with their help. Thanks again guys!

All that aside, this mouse is absolutely wonderful. It has the perfect conformity to the hand. The left and right mouse buttons are concave so your fingers nestle right into them and it has just enough extra buttons for gaming. The light strip on the base of it is awesome, and it even animates when you plug it in to charge it from zero to full.

I'm a budget female gamer and this mouse is great for me. I was previously using a T6 mouse by Picotek, but they no longer make the same model and my left click button was acting up. I decided to switch to a Red Dragon brand mouse since I've heard good things about them from other budget gamers. I was apprehensive about ordering the Mammoth since most reviews mentioned how great it is for larger hands and I have small, feminine hands. This mouse is SO comfortable to use.

If you purchase this mouse, you will need to download the drivers for the control panel on your own, from their website. The mouse is plug and play, but if you want to customize the DPI, colors, and other features, you will need to download the control panel. The color changing feature only affects the dragon logo and the "V" shaped figures on the sides of the mouse. You cannot change the color of the arrow keys or scroll wheel, but the control panel offers several different profiles, each with their own pre-set color for the scroll wheel, so it's an easy fix to simply set up the profile that has the scroll wheel color you like.

This mouse reminds me heavily of the Anker CG150 (Currently Discountinued)... almost to the point that I think they stole their technology. The proprietary software is EXACTLY the same as the Anker Gaming Mouse but instead of blue, it's colored RED. The placement of everything is exactly the same, but the overall look of the mouse itself is slightly different.

The mouse itself handles quite well, it has just enough weight to it to be comfortable when moving around your desk quickly. I recommend using this mouse without a mouse pad as it really doesn't need it. The new gaming mice are developed with smooth pads on the bottom that allow them to easily glide without mouse pads, which gives the user a much more fluid movement when gaming, especially for first person shooters.

So let's get onto the specs. All of the buttons on the mouse are able to be customized which comes in handy whether you're doing gaming or just general browsing of the web. I bound my mouse button 6, and 4 to back and forward for easy browsing and a handy mute button in the middle. However you may want to use that as a DPI switch, or the button on the left mouse button for quick switching during gaming sessions. The software that comes with the mouse allows you to change the rear LED's color, set the sensitivity, DPI, polling rate, scrolling speeds, and even each DPI profile for every level of the DPI. The customization of this mouse for the price beats out even Razer products when you consider the money you're saving.

The mouse also comes equipped with a set of weights to be able to tune the mouse, and a braided cable so it won't tangle nearly as much as a normal cable. It also has the benefit of being protected from rubbing on sharp edges for a while before the braid begins to fray. Overall the mouse feels great in my hands, my thumb sits comfortably on the left side without grazing on the table. All together it feels natural, however if you are used to something like the Razer Death Adder it may take a bit of getting used to as the hump in the middle is slightly higher than some of the more low profile gaming mice, but after a while you won't even notice it.

I had been using a Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 for a few years until it started to show sighs of wear and having problems with scrolling. I decided I wanted to upgrade to a mouse more suitable and capable for gaming. I am not a hardcore gamer, but more on the casual side so I did not need anything too extreme. After researching other mice available on the internet, I decided on this one, the Redragon Mammoth. Let me say I have been very happy with this decision.

I decided going from wireless to wired again would save me battery costs and performance. Besides the wire on this mouse is not a typical one and makes it easy to identify with all my other computer wires. The mouse has several DPI modes you can switch rather quickly through. Up to 16400 DPI is pretty extreme but hey if that is your thing then go for it! Having said that the range of DPI should satisfied most. The mouse comes with a program that lets you do some customization, both physical and internal. You control the lights breathing or color to your liking. Looks great when the lights are on, and you can leave it like that because you do not need batteries! There is also a weight system in this mouse as well. Again I am just a casual gamer, where 16400 DPI and weights are much more than I need, but having them to try out and get a feel for is certainly a plus.

Finally an important point the price. This price is definitely the best out there. For the customizations and capabilities of this mouse the price is very competitive with brands such as Razor. This is a fantastic alternative to brand names and will certainly meet your expectations. Instructions are in English! Give this one a try, I am sure you will be happy!

It's a nice mouse. It has a nice weight to it (not heavy) that makes it feel like quality. Very comfortable to use, puts your hand in a good position. If you have bigger hands, this is definitely a better option compared to a basic logitech mouse. The thing I like a lot, out of the box, it lights up in a rainbow like fashion for the RGB while you use it and the lights shut off after about 30 seconds or so. Then back on once you move it. Not too flashy either like other mice where they look like they want to explode. My only complaint isthe left click, the springs seem to be lower in quality as you can hear an odd squeaky sound somtimes. More often than not a click produces the sound. It's not too distracting but you will likely notice it. I do not use it as a gaming mouse though. I use it for general use but someone who embraces the RGB life because colors are fun. The buttons on the side are nice and useful for going back and forward on a webpage. There are a lot of extra buttons on it so you could likely program them to do various things. The battery life is pretty good. Fantastic bonus that it charges USB-C. I've used it for about a week now and have not had to charge it at all. That's with the RBG on. There is an Econ mode which basically allows you to use it without the lights on so you can preserve the battery life.

Regardless, if you are looking a higher quality mouse compared to the basic logitech mice you find at your local staples, this is a good alternative. Feels sturdy, the RGB are nice and not too overbearing. One star down because the second you notice the squeakyness it's hard to not notice it. Overall a solid mouse and I would highly recommend it. $40 is a bit too much, I would prefer a $30 price tag but considering other mice from big brands for similar features cost $100+ at times, it's a good value. For general use. I'm pretty confident it'll perform good for the price in a gaming situation.
