  3. So many mice to "choose" from, but really the only option is an MX518 or G400. :p

    Agreed, I have the Naga too and it is absolutely brilliant piece of peripheral. Only downside is that the little clickers inside the mouse (well at least the left one) worn out after a year or so. Modded the mouse and its not heavier due to stainless steel modification :p

    What is that, some sort of honeycomb cut out?

    Do these designers never use mice? All that's gonna do is build up gunk and its going to look ****ing terrible.

    I'll agree, these mice just look horrible. Car designers just seem willing to prove time and time again that they have no clue outside the automotive industry, and sometimes, even within. Ergonomically, I'd rather use a house brick with a teflon coated base than one of those goofy looking things.

    My CM Storm is looking more and more outdated.. need to test out the ergo on it and see if it works as nice as it looks. The OD version looks like it would fit on my C6 rail nicely.

    I'll be buying one of those G600s this month... Got a chance to try one out at a local Fry's and it feels like a better fit than the Naga was for me. Plus, I really like the way they formed the thumb keys to make them easier to find by feel.

    Thanks for pointing that out fimbles - I was really close to purchasing either a Naga or this Level 10 and now that I've read up on the G600 a bit I'll be picking one up (cheaper at Best Buy than Newegg?) probably tomorrow for $70. I can't figure out if it's too light or too heavy as I'm finding complaints on both sides.

    Oh and the Naga is comfortable to use. It gets misserably hot in your pam, Half the buttons you almost have to mash in, and Razer has finally proven that it IS in fact possible to have too many buttons on one mouse.

    Does anyone own one of these who operates in linux? Ideally once you have programmed the functions with the client/driver, and stored them in on board memory, the mouse should function in Linux as it has been programmed. I am thinking about buying one to replace my Razer Naga with.

    The Razer Naga has no onboard memory. It relies on the windows client to translate button presses into assigned keystrokes or macros. This makes it totally useless outside of the windows operating system, where it effectively becomes a mouse with a numberpad glued to the side.

    In addition to this it looks much more comfortable then the Naga. I am mostly just looking for a way to streamline my operations in Linux. Once you get use to navigating by mouse shortcuts its just hard to go back..
  16. You don't call a computer mouse mice. Mouse is an acronym which stands for Manually operated user selection equipment therefore its already plural. mice on the other hand only applies to living animals. I just love to troll people.
