hmm.... being optical I would think med. and for sure high fan speeds would make the mouse jitter :/

saw a DIY mod for this a year or two ago... didn't think someone would actually manufacture it. :p

Yeah, I get REALLY sweaty hands from using a mouse! NOT!! It's almost as good as the solar powered torch.

Hehe, I can never understand the whole "illuminated" mouse thing either.
It's covered by your hand in use, and really, how often do you look at your
hand whilst moving the cursor?

They're the fluffy-dice of the PC-car hehe :D

reminds me of a gamepad i almost bought, then realized what do i need this for. But I have to admit the variable air flow control is pretty sweet. :D

same thing goes for all the lights and windows on a pc. you're supposed to be looking at your screen, not the case. ;)

but it's all asthetics. if you were into having a flashy setup, then i think the mouse would actually go well along with an illuminated keyboard.

lol no joke - my brother just bought the Nyko version (that xoxide ripped off... :) )
not only does the fan not help too much... I like to refer to it as the "mutant jelly bean" as it is a weird, uncomfortable bean of death

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
