Tiny mice are never the best for those of us with cow-cockie's great clodhopper hands, so I wasn't expecting this one to be any different. It's always nice to be pleasantly surprised by being proved wrong.

Not only does this wee mouse look seriously 'leet (especially at night or in low-light conditions) but it's comfort rating is surprisingly high, and fully justified. Not only did I find that it fit nicely into the cup of my palm, but even when it was in motion it didn't move in my grip. Even some full-sized mice aren't as nice to use as this was.

The resolution was stunning, doing some amazing things while in use in Photoshop and when doing fine-detail work in 3d rendering packages such as LightWave. Of course, since the detail level on desktop is minimal, you won't see much there, but I can assume the extra rez will go down well with gamers as well, allowing for much better control.

Overall, a very stunning little unit, at a very affordable and justified price. The multi-coloured flashing-&-fading colorscheme will appeal to the 'leet junkies out there, and the sheer comfort and practicality of the smaller design will appeal to any smart laptop owners, regardless. With such a great range of appeal, it's a top-notch deal no matter how you look at it.
