    We are planning to do a Microsoft Habu versus Logitech Revolution as a separate article in the near future!

    Why no G7, arguably the best mouse out there.

    No the habu is a poor mouse, skips at high dpi and doesnt perform very well, looks good though and feels ok, personally its either a Logitech G5, G3 or a MS3.0 (just been re released).

    Regarding the test im surprised that it was a bit of a mis match as some of those mice have been on the market a long time plus there was no consistancy in the review, for example you had a cordless mouse in with wired mice, you had mice that had weights and some that didnt have that feature and then there were loads of mice missing from the review. I test gaming surfaces on a daily basis and i have pretty much most mice on the market (and some not) im just surprised there was no depth to this review as it could have been so much better.

    One other thing that i was shocked about in this review was the pictures, not the quality but the hand in the picture for me personally seeing someones chewed nails and split skin (on the thumb) showed no professionalism and that the article was rushed.

    This is not an attack on bit-tech but its not what i expect from you guys as your standards are always so high.

    I'm using a mx1000 right now, but my choice for one of the best gaming and all around mice would have to be the mx300 or mx310. For twitchy games this mouse was king. It just kinda hurt the fingers if you played for an extended period though...

    In terms of gaming i am mostly into RTS and RPGs such as oblivion, I use the MX1000 and have done since its release. The only problems i have are the battery running out but then again that is more my fault for not watching the very clear display on the side and the fact that the feet are not great in that the level of friction is quite high. I think some teflon tape and a decent mouse mat might be in order.

    Other than those two things I cannot fault the mouse at all, great sensitivity, easy customisation through software and very very comfy to use plus no cable to snag and drag on the desk, something i find very noticeable if using a conventional wired one at any time.

    My mates uncle has the G7 he hates it its too flat tbh, I use the MX1000 which has served me very well but I'll probably get a revolution.

    To each their own in the world of mice. Personally, I'd go nuts trying to use the Fata1ity mouse; too small! For me, the Razers are a perfect fit, just sit your hand back a little so that your fingers lay flat on the buttons!

    G5, mx510, razorback are missing. 1000 is old now, looking at the dpi i don't think it's half as good as the new logitech gaming mice that are out.

    I have several trackballs, mice, and a couple of touchpads - I always enjoy reviews of pointing devices (sort of an addiction of mine). What criteria did you use when selecting mice to review?

    Your biggest beefs with the Krait could be fixed by going to a Diamondback or Copperhead. I love my Copperhead but wouldn't buy a Krait for gaming.

    The Fatal1ty mouse looked interesting to me (I've tried one and think I'd like it - if they made a lefty version) but how can you hold it like that? I have at least average size hands and even on an average MS mouse my palm doesn't come that close to the mouse - uncurl / straiten your fingers some.

    Edit: see post #28
