Much much different approach then previously seen with SS; more in line with alternative brands.
The side buttons seem cheap and not well designed. However, that isn't my main point of contention. The thing that bothers me is the top shell not having a "resting" area at the scroll wheel. The Intellimouse, EC, Sensei, etc, all use a different shell piece for a "resting" area. This mold design looks like a two piece (most likely is a three piece) shell where the PCB is mounted on the lower half (the piece that has the side buttons and rubber grips) and the other shell piece (for the main buttons) drops in from the top. Think Razer Taipan -- the cable (from what I can tell) even comes out from the bottom. The long split of the top piece makes me think even more so that this is the case. If you could make a two piece mold with a single PCB it would be great for the profit margin, you know? By the way this really looks like a Razer produced product.
Anyway, it may end up being a 12 piece design, with 4 PCBs and 8 LEDs. Either way, the shell, side buttons, stress relief, rubber grips and coating don't make me feel like it would be money well spent. If it has a small sensor PCB, that I could transplant to another mouse, then maybe I would buy it.
Are you going to buy one to tell us all about it?Edited by popups - 10/11/13 at 9:07am
