Yeah just a bit, they really need to bring the prices down though. the 2000 - 2800 dpi price range has been at like $50 - $70 for ages now.

It's hard to believe that the technology out there is still so high to pay off R&D cost.

For me the Avatar is nice enough given that they plan to deliver the power, some options and a decent ergonomic support, I trade off from the G9 when I'm not gaming simply because the fall-off on the back is bothersome really. I feel like I'm eclipsing the entire mouse with my hand.

It's just like any decent sound card too. They hold their value cause it's not like it's going to be turning obsolete anytime soon. Which is a good thing. I'm getting tired of buying these video cards all the time only to see the price keep getting slashed over and over.

The only thing that seems to shift is the button placement and macro functions. DPI has been stable with 2000 as a norm and 4000 as a peak.

Sound cards are a bit of an odd market to talk about though, if we didn't see the disappearance of Aureal and other companies the game might be different. With Creative controlling most patents and being ready to sue though it makes progress occur on their schedule.

For quite a while you had the same thing going for the market with new sound cards and new technologies every minute. Now they're so bottlenecked with legal worries that we're lucky to see anyone doing a new non-creative chip a year.

What a nice mouse! So nice, it should be a "rat." Seriously, it looks like some kind of wired grenade.
