As I said before its fairly rare that we get a chance to talk a look at a mouse that isn’t from the usual suspects. After spending time with the Tek Republic TM Gaming Mouse I can say for sure that its different than what we would see typically. The comfort issues I experienced would most likely prevent me from using this every day. But the hard shell that I complained about does have one benefit. This mouse feels like you could throw it and not worry about damaging it. I would have no problem at all giving this to a child as their first gaming mouse or using it as a loaner at a LAN party. With a retail price of just under $50 I think it’s a little too expensive for what you get, but I think it’s possible that we will see this one at a much more reasonable price in the future.

With no issues with z axis tracking and fairly customizable software it’s still a good performing mouse. I think considering the pro’s and con’s this mouse might be best used in a LAN shop or somewhere else where you might be concerned with the mouse being abused.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers.

A gaming mouse from someone other than the usual suspects

Nice, love the mouse reviews.

The problem is everyone's hands are different so trying them out first, before you buy is a big plus.

Glad to see someone else stepping up to the plate though.
