Thats a review by Frederick S but I think he undermined it a little to much.

I replied with this in the thread here: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=111324

I own this mouse and love it! Its easily on par with the good gaming mouse companies like Logitech and Razer and is actually better in a few departements to that of its competitors. I think Federik got a bad deal for the mouse, I got mine for only $80 AUD which is like 45 pounds? Also the LEDs you barely see when your hand is covered over it. I also thought the design was good on the mouse, better then all my previous mouses I've owned and very comfortable. My braided cable isn't stiff and easily reaches my computer which would be around a meter and a bit away from where my mouse is placed, and I have lots of tugging before it tightens. Also I got a full sized CD, not a half sized one?

My personal opinion, one of the best gaming mouses out there and if you get it at the right price like I did, you'll be very happy. ;)

It's $50 at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002R5ABGY/?tag=tec06d-20

I also have one and I think it's rather quite nice, much better than anything from M$ and very comparable to my old Logitech G5. I guess I'm not enough of a Razer fanboy to dislike anything that's not made by Razer though...

I also agree with Sensi Karate, the cord is way long enough and I have a huge freakin desk and have no problem reaching the back of my system. I too got a normal size CD in the box, but so what? CM Strom has the ISO image as well as a firmware update available on their website and the firmware update will fix the issues mentioned with the sensor.

It's also not plasticky and it's one of the few "LED ridden" mice that you have the option to turn off all the lights on. The value of the OLED display is questionable and the same goes for the weights, as I think it's ideal with the full set of weights fitted. It suits my hands perfectly, although I agree that the thumb buttons are a bit off and it would've been nice to have a slightly better scroll wheel that would tilt.
Its a great mouse, one of the best I've had. ;)

Thanks funny I didn't get an email notification for this. I'll take a look through the thread. I'm looking at it because of my project in the proper forum here. If I had abilities to make a sig I would have a link, but its Project Slumber Parties.
