Default NZXT Avatar Gaming Mouse

In the world of gaming mice, there are a few names that we see often, such as Logitech and Razer. But, a new entrant is here, and they're hoping to make a splash with their first-ever gaming peripheral. The Avatar from NZXT has both the style and design we're looking for, so let's see if it lives up to the rest of our expectations.

I like the design of this mouse- too bad about the software, but as for the weight- I really do think that there's nothing wrong with a light mouse -the associated illusion of cheapness is just a hang-up that we have. I don't think there's an advantage to having a heavier mouse, and in fact, I would think that lighter is better. I just bought a G9 (upgraded from teh G5) and I didn't bother with putting weights in it. Now that I've gotten used to it, I am happier with the lighter mouse. I wish they hadn't bothered with the weights and shaved 10 bucks off the price.
