    Almost as ridiculous as the Neymar transfer.
    No mouse is worth £140

    Joke of a price.

    Back in the day top end Wireless mice like the MX Revolution were like £60...

    £140 for a lump of plastic tat. Even the scroll wheel mech is plastic. Seriously I would expect metal at that price.

    God that looks cheap.

    Logitech G700s = best gaming mouse ever. A shame Logitech don't make it anymore. I must buy a backup one.

    This doesn't look like a bad mouse, really, but that price tag is just nonsensical. And stuff like that proprietary USB cable needs to die in a fire, I'm afraid.

    Apple Gaming Razer needs to get their act together, this is ridiculous. How does Corsair mouses cost half with brushed metal under-side and braided cables?

    It's funny, I bought a mouse cheap here in Japan that looks almost 100% the same as this mouse. OK, it doesn't do wireless, and there's no "customisation" for the LEDs - there are three modes; off, on pulsing and on swirling round the mouse... but otherwise it looks very similar.

    When I saw the picture I had no idea it was from Razer. I was just asking, "Where did Bit order that Horsky mouse from?"... then I saw "Razer Lancehead" and did a doubletake.

    The build quality is freakin' awful. I mean, seriously poor. I picked it up because I could find literally nothing about it online and figured it was worth a punt since (at the time I bought it) it was about £10 (it's almost double that right now) while 'known quantities' in Logitech mice were about eight times the price (and they have since dropped in price!) OK, so Razer might have improved upon it... but that does seem to be a lot of money.

    With stuff like this these days it doesn't matter where you buy it or who you buy it from it is all made in China to the same standards. I've gone through some insanely expensive mice and they have all gone the same way, scroll wheel death. So for a test I bought one for £8, scroll wheel lasted the entire six months I was using it.

    It's a shame, but money doesn't buy you quality these days, especially not in computer stuff.

    But can you change the dpi settings without an internet connection?

    [Wasn't it razer where no-one could change any of their mouse setting because razer's servers were down...]
