I'm glad you ordered a gaming mice for $8.50, Congrats!
you will inevitably be competing with China. And, you will need a far larger market than just OCN if you wish to see any sales (let alone profit)

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.

Definitely would be willing to buy these mouses.

Yes you would be competing with many low end mouses, however I tried 2 5000 DPI chinese generic mouses. They were kinda crappy.
In the end though if you don't have proper configuration software and firmware, even the best sensor will fail.

No because I (unfortunately) need at least one side button.

I don't care about warranty on a 50 bucks mouse, take a guess how much I would care about it if I pay 25$ for a mouse.

Update: I think it's safe to say that we will not be perusing this project at the current time, but I do thank all of you for taking the time to show interest.
