Here in Belgium it was €30 (€29.99...) last time I checked... Should I pick it up?
If you absolutely need it.
Pffft.....any decent laser mouse will do the job these days...
All the rest is just marketing gimmicks and a 'placebo' effect on the user.
I really think the real differences are in the shape and software, any sensor/hardware will be easily fast and accurate enough. I don't mind paying for (build)quality, but just what is the screen there for...
I got this mouse because it felt absolutely stunning in my hand, I then got exceedingly happy with how well it performed and how easy it was to tweak.
Once you get to a certain level of sensitivity, who really cares if it can track at 8 or 80mph? As far as I'm concerned, mice are sufficiently sensitive enough these days for me not to have to worry about it. I'm not really concerned about all the "driver aid" stuff like more accurate tracking - I want the cursor/crosshair to follow the movements I make with the mouse, even if it twitches and isn't perfectly straight.
The only thing I'm really concerned about is ergonomics: if my hand isn't sore or cramped after an hour or two, then I've found a good mouse.
The Steel series may 'like like'??? Proof read Cheesecake.
ill take razer's products over steel.
not at all
that is all
having 1920s braided cable makes you stand out as probably the least coolest person on the planet
I used to think the same but Razer seems to be abandoning the ambidextrous mouse which renders their latest products useless to me (a lefty).
My old G5 still does the job and I have a brand new Razer Deathadder as a spare think these two will for a good few years yet
This mouse may have decent build quality, although I do not trust these reviews as the same is said about Razer's mice and the Microsoft HABU and I find them to have a cheap plastic feel about them, So back to my point... This mouse may or may not have decent build quality but what would put me off is these two points:
1) Looks cheap.
2) Isn't cheap!
The mouse I had previously was an old (very old... only mouse I've owned and was bought when I first built my PC) Logitech MouseMan. It still works although I have worn through the rubber area around the thumb button and I only really upgraded so I could have more buttons to program and play with as the drivers for the old mouse are not supported by Win7 so I lost the thumb button, along with the experience of better game play with the adjustable DPI resolution. So far I am totally happy with my choice of the Logitech G500 although I would have liked to have a blue LED instead of the red as it would them match my PC... but thats nothing to complain about as my hand covers it anyway.
I look forward to picking up the new Logitech G110 Keyboard although I think I will wait until retailers/etailers start to price lower than the RRP of £69.99.
Conclusion: '...sensitive you are to the mounsing aids it can remove...'
Next time you have access to a CNC machine, mill a new casing for the mouse, then?
You know what's pretty funny?
I'm using one of those $10 Logitech optical mice..
Wired via USB, it works great, and it is relatively comfy. Although it lacks buttons.
How's the quality of the plastic compared with the Logitech MX Revolution? This steelseries looks pretty solid, but that's what I thought about the MS Sidewinder (which is complete trash quality imo).
Why doesn't someone release a mouse with a shell made of aluminum? If there already is one, I'm interested to know..
