I liked the look of this mouse when I saw it on a retail site, but a review from another site put me off it a bit, now after reading this review it is back at the top of the list.
I'm sure I've seen dimensions listed for other mice which were as large or even larger than those I've seen for the Behemoth, so I find it a bit strange that multiple reviewers comment on it being so large.

It's definitely bigger than any mouse I've ever used

I bought that mouse, been using it for about a week now. It is quite comfortable, I prefer how my hand rests on it compared to my previous puny logitech. The only downsides that I've noticed - which are probably as much to do with my cramped space as to do with the actual mouse - are that sometimes when I try to middle click a text link in a browser, that I have to revert to ctrl + left click because the mouse will move everso slightly, but enough to move off the link I was aiming at.
This probably doesnt matter that much, but I also find that I have to be a bit careful pressing the front left/"forward" button as my index finger can press the left click button accidentally at the same time.
The cord is also better than the one on my previous mouse.

Well, this is ironic... Yesterday I remembered the Behemoth review, after getting annoyed at my mouse for being too small for my hand. I tried to get one. Now I found the thread again...

It turns out to be impossible to acquire in the UK. Not that it never reached the UK... Just impossible to get here now, as it's been discontinued (!?!). And it's not all that long since Neoseeker reviewed it. What gives? Did Neoseeker just review it really late, or was the product discontinued ridiculously early?

There are still some on amazon.com in America, but Amazon apparantly doesn't allow the export of electrical goods. Dicks.

So I've decided to make do with either an OCZ Eclipse or Saitek Cyborg Mouse (It has a motor that makes it get bigger or smaller!). I just hope the one I get is big enough. That was the whole reason why I wanted the Behemoth. >_<;

It wasn't a launch review, but it wasn't that late either. Little over a month after launch IIRC.

It's still on OCZ's website, so it's kind of odd you cannot find one.

Yeah, I noticed it was still on their site.

But I got in touch with OCZ and they specifically told me that the Behemoth had been discontinued.

I asked about a viable alternative and the lazy buggers never got back to me. It cost them a sale.

In the end I got a Saitek Cyborg instead.

The Behemoth is still possible to get in America, on amazon.com. But on amazon.co.uk, the only available one was over in France and had a massive delivery charge that was more than twice the value of the mouse!

I guess we just didn't get many of them here. I wonder why the mouse is on their site if it's been discontinued...

Well, looks like my time with this mouse is coming to an end. It still works but sometimes it moves suddenly, meaning pressing links and highlighting text can be frustrating. I've tried cleaning it out, but that hasn't helped. I haven't used a compressed air can if anyone thinks that would really help. Now gotta start looking out for another mouse.
