    lol, those holes have nothing to do with weight, just like those leds
    It's the mouse version of a fast n furious honda. The stereo subwoofers and huge wing bolted to the trunk lid make it "faster". lol.

    Making the mouse less sturdy. So yea there is a reason for it and overall the mice have been fairly well received.
    About weight? How... Rather make mouse empty in the inside, than make holes into it... However, usually man's hands need something bit heavier,.. so this mouse is mostly for kids, or smaller and lighter men. I'm using currently G602, and it doesn't have any holes,...

    Yes I have a synaptics as well. There is a legacy synaptics driver that I have tried with no success but I will give your idea a try. Thanks for posting.

    When I was looking for a new mouse I considered getting one of those. The holes actually put me off because I figured it would be harder to clean. If muck gets in the holes it's going to take extra attention to clean them out. A normal mouse you can just wipe down.

    Currently I'm using a Zowie mouse. Before that I had a Steelseries Kinzu. I've had a great experience with both brands. They're high quality products. They both work fine under all the GNU-Linux distros I've tried too.

    I don't understand the need for a patch to support these: all buttons on the O- already work well on (at least) vanilla kernels 5.4.x, 5.3.x, 5.2.x...

    It's a great mouse for the more serious players of the fastest fps games, eg Xonotic and Warsow. So is any ultra light mouse with a very flexible cable, but this was the lightest one in stock here when my deathadder buttons failed. Obviously the holes are to shave off a few grams, and the old deathadder does feel like a brick with glue under it, compared to this.

    If you have one, it can be configured in Linux with this program (by Xonotic player malice): https://gitlab.com/derpmalicious/magnificent (tested only with firmware 1.0.9).
    This program allows some settings that you can't access in the manufacturer's windows program.

    But besides that it's always nice to have more support ^^
