I mean it does look cool. I just found it to be absolutly pointless. Like I said, I would be a bit more receptive to it if it was bundled in with their high end mouse...the copperhead. Then, under the perception that it was "free", I might appreciate it but stand alone $20. No thank you.

The score was not a knock at razer either. I loved the copperhead and the krait as well. I did have some complaints but over all, they were both nice mice. But don't tell me that I need a f*ckin' weight to hold the cord in place.

My son says "$20!! for $20 I could just tape the cord down to a rock, and $20 would buy a lot of tape!"

I actually had the problem of the mouse cord getting all tangled up behind the desk and pulling on it badly. I just set the cord under the lip of the monitor. Works great.

IN your article you mention that the price might be a bit steep especially when there are other cheaper products.

Can you suggest any (besides the rock & tape)?

I'd be interested in more reasonably priced cable management for my mouse.

Thank you,

- Dan
