that mousepad looks pretty cool.
When it comes down to it, let them think what they want.Originally Posted by Axaion
Yep, i noticed that aswell popups, i dont see how its a DA or EC1/2 Competitor, when it is very much more inspired by the IME 3.0 and comfort 6000, all that razer viral marketing must have made people think that the DA was the first mouse with a shape similar to that, lol.
If the mouse is 60 USD I would be dumbfounded. A mouse with that type of design is not worth (to me at least) 60 USD retail. I understand they have to recoup their investment, but I cannot ignore that mold design.Originally Posted by Tazzzz
When it comes to steelseries, they will always find a way to **** up with a potentially good mouse. I dont doubt that.
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.Originally Posted by Skylit
I don't see anything wrong with the design (albeit works for a particular user), nor price point. Actually fits in market quite well at 60 USD/EURO based on specs offered.
Much much different approach then previously seen with SS; more in line with alternative brands.
