no mention about the rubber dome switches? all F-keys, escape, and the page up/down area are all rubber dome, so this is not really a mechanical keyboard in my eyes.

Wow... keys wearing out after a week? damn! i usually trust corsairs quality, but now i must start doubting them...

The sniper button is pretty freakin' cool. I thought I'd hate it but I really really like it. It's also super useful in Photoshop!

The keep turning when mouse is lifted feature is very interesting, would love to test that for flying in BF3. However my Logitech G500 isn't broken and I rather have 2 thumb buttons rather than just a single sniper button :(

It still has the forward and back buttons -- the sniper button is a bonus. You had to have at least looked at the pictures right? :lol:

They are rather discrete. I've looked at the M60 several times before and never noticed them :D

Thanks for the info. I guess I'll have to read the M60 half tomorrow.

I thought the mouse would uncomfortable as all get out but it seems like the only people who don't like it are the ones with a claw grip.

The sniper button does indeed interest me. :) I've gotten use to programming my Forward/Back buttons to Alt/Ctrl so I wonder if my thumb could cover one of those buttons and the sniper button at once. I never thought about non-game use such as Photoshop but now that you say that I can totally see the application. I see people whining about the software. Is it really that unfriendly or they hamming it up?

I want my mouse back... :rtfm:

:rofl:

(always thought that smiley deserved more air time)

Logitech FTW love my K800 even though I don't game with it. That's why I have my 360 gamepad for gaming.

To be honest I don't think it's that bad. I've seen some terrible software over the years and the Corsair stuff isn't even close to the worst I've seen. It's a bit ungainly but with a little patience you can do what you want to do. :cheers:
