    Have I been living under a rock? I'm totally unfamiliar with this "leading maker of computer peripherals".

    Let me guess: "For the serious, Hardcore gamer" YEAH BRO! My God, PC gaming peripherals are so gaudy. It's like the manufactures are stuck in some late '80s movie. This overpriced crap is why the PC gaming market can never gain ground to the consoles. I chuckle every time I see an extravagant GPU box. Pretty soon though, these aging man-children will run out of their parents money.

    But for now... DEATH KILLER XTREME 9000!!!!
