you are getting into a very risky business. Right now, for around US$28 shipped - you can get a 5000dpi fully customizable (with fairly good software) mouse. Although the sensor might not be the best, it will certainly meet the needs of majority of people who buy this for gaming
OCN was never my primary market, infact, it was the last place I was concerned about (marketing wise). If you honestly think these mice would be manufactured in the US, it would inevitably cost more than the targeted price range. I know it's a risky business and thus the point of a thread on a site filled with a mixed groups of gamers.
You mentioned quote on quote :
"here are already several chinese gaming rip-offs that can be had for US$15 is not less that provide all of the features you mentioned and more"
I do understand the mentality of where you're coming from, but please trust me when I say that would be like finding a needle in a haystack. You are indeed correct about being finding a 5000 CPI laser mouse for as low as $28 USD, but lets face the facts here, it doesn't suit everybody and if it did, I wouldn't see a "recommend me a new mouse" threads every 6 hours.
Anyway, thank you for the feedback.
