  1. They make great mice, I have one of their older units still, no reason to change either 🙂

  2. This is most interesting. I dont know if I like the shape as much as the IKARI however.

  3. They make very nice mice indeed. Friend of mine has the ikari mouse, which I rate highly.

  4. It is a long time since I have bought a mouse, I still have my microsoft gaming mouse which does me well. good review though 🙂

  5. Very good review, and this is a very appealing product. I am not sure I would spend that much on a mouse though, seems very expensive.

  6. 9 out of 10? you have to be kidding me, easily deserves a 10 🙂 I have one and love it.
