Ten... gaming mice

Product round-upProduct round-up The three qualities I look for in a gaming mouse are: comfort, aesthetics and accuracy. And considering the imminent financial meltdown of the entire world, I'd like to think that I can get these three qualities for less than a week's shopping at Sainsbury's. Compared to last year prices, what's on offer seems to be slightly more realistic but splashing out on the wrong mouse could be a costly mistake and I'm not just talking carpal tunnel problems. This being a round-up I've tried to stick to any improvements from previous models reviewed and to pinpoint unique qualities and relative advantages. For testing these products were used in game with 

World of Warcraft, Left 4 Dead 2 and the current demo of the hotly anticipated 
Mass Effect 3.
