    Who need unlimited game profiles? I only use no more than 4 profiles. Plus, the design of this mouse is nothing special, flat and round. Looks like the 10 dollars gadgets from the discount pile of junks.

    short of the braided cord and the customizable LEDs and profiles (who needs a profile on a mouse? just customize your games instead)... I got a Ideazon lazer mouse that has 7 or 9 dpi settings for 34 bucks. So Im assuming the other 30 bucks comes in the form of their software and braided cord... Thanks I think I'll pass.

    Total off topic here, but when I saw the logo Cody Lyoko came to mind. Anyways, the mouse looks decent. $60 may be a little steep, but it sounds like the mouse is build pretty solid.

    looks like it was magnified 20 times to be visible.
    if the size is not the same as the picture it is too small.
    i do not have the hands of a 5 year old this looks like it was designed for.
    who designs mice? people are getting bigger, not smaller, unless their demographic customer base is chinese or 5 year olds, wth bother making something so small.

    Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person who believes that wired interface devices are, and SHOULD BE, and thing of the past. With bluetooth and decent quality RF options available elsewhere for a competitive price i find myself straining to think of any reason someone would pay $60 for any wired mouse at all.
    I've been bugging Steelseries for 2 years to release a bluetooth version of their Merc Stealth keyboard but they just resolutely stick to Wired devices.

    I like wired mice, but don't see the point of this one.

    The point of it is you get most of the goodness of the original Sensei mouse which costs $89 for only $59. It's actually more similar to the SteelSeries Diablo III mouse as far as features go. The only non-cosmetic difference I can see from the Diablo III mouse is that it has one on-board profile as opposed to none. This is actually important especially if you're left handed. That way you can essentially hard-wire the mouse into a left-handed configuration so you don't have to change the config. in S/W on all of your OS. If you move the mouse between multiple machines, with multi-boot, with a KVM, or simultaneously with a right hand mouse, this is huge. I own the SteelSeries Diablo III, Sensei, & Sensei Fnatic edition but I think the Sensei raw would be the best of the bunch. It has the option of a rubberized finish which the Sensei lacks and has the one onboard profile that the Diablo III lacks. I don't really care about the LCD display and 4 extra on board profiles on the Sensei & Sensei Fnatic or the 16.8 million colors on the Sensei. I think it looks the best out of the 4 as well not to mention it's $10 cheaper than the Diablo III. As far as I'm concerned this is the best mouse available for lefties.

    I love the idea of this mouse. It is symmetrical. I hate large mice that favor one side or the other. I need mice that are easy to pick up and that my hand easily fits around. The best mouse I have ever owned was the Logitech G3 by far, but since it was ergonomic, it was not popular, and thus...doesnt have a million different iterations like the other G series mice...which all suck IMO.
