    Sharkoon's Rush Fireglider is a new gaming mouse that uses laser tracking. It comes with seven button, of which six are freely programmable. Also included is a six level color coded DPI selector. Like many other recent gamer mice the Sharkoon Rush has support for added weights to fine tune your mouse.

    Sharkoon's Jump Start gives you the freedom to move your PC's On/Off button to a location further away from the case - great for Media PCs. It also includes two USB 2.0 ports, 1x headphone and 1x microphone.

    Using the Sharkoon DualDock you can connect two 2.5" or 3.5" SATA harddrives to your PC using either eSATA or USB 2.0. Each of the drives can be turned on or off separately via its own power switch.

    The Sharkoon Quickdeck is a new external HDD case which supports 2.5" and 3.5" drives connected to the PC via eSATA and USB 2.0.

    That sharkoon jump start isnt that new, wonder why they are showing it off. I have one here! :D
    Its really handy, and it meant I could get rid of the ugly modular one that came with my case.

    Like the big red buttons you have around machinery in workshops.

    You could probably buy one of those. (even though they are rated for like 400V! :roll: )
