Seriously, unless you need the ergonomics of the mouse, use the Adder instead.

its actually not that bad a price for a great looking mouse. The colors are cool and infrared isnt a bad technology.

This thing has some nice features thrown into it, though Id like the option of adding different weights to help conform to my style of gaming.
