meh the price is dissapointing, when in uk its 66 with shipping and in germany its 109 euro with shipping. thats about 20euro difference. Then you think, alright I live in a EU contry so I wont have to pay extra if I import from other EU country, well you cant you cant since it only ships to UK. And germany only ships to Germany. France dont even have it yet.
And Im from Denmark, meaning I wont be able to get it from the ASUS shop.
thats just silly.

ok, These are just my two cents so PLEASE DON'T HATE ME ASUS!
It is nothing PERSONAL I am just saying a few thoughts on this mice as well as Other mice.
Do not take it personal, as I would love to hear a discussion.

I personally would not buy this mouse due to one sole reason sadly...

I don't know where companies are getting their Gaming mouse designs from these days, but the one design flaw in HIGH Uncomfort is the mouse palm rest area, It jabs into joints and are uncomfortable.

By this area i mean that they make it not round but triangular. this puts pressure into the bones.
I know because I used a mouse similar, as its a amazing mouse, this one design part prevents me from Long periods of gaming.

if you take a look at this picture you will see it has a triangular shape at the palm rest area at the very top of the picture.

Asus should have not went with this design, and should have gotten feedback regarding it.
they should have went with the classic Rounded palm rest.

I really can not game much on my mouse that is similar unless I make my hand cocked sideways because of that triangular palm rest area, I have heard many others complain too.

So please any insight on why you guys thought this was better please discuss I am curious to what is making alot of other companies do the same.

Let me start by stating that I have not tried the new Asus mouse yet so what you say might be totally legit. I do however want to point out that there are 3 different ways to hold a gaming mouse depending on what type of game you play like RTS or FPS. Do you thinking it's possible that the mouse is not designed ergonomically based on your specific hand position? Here is link for some more info: http://www.razerzone.com/mouseguide/ergonomic/advantage.

Yixingchen, Id like to note you are correct "Sorta"
The fact the palm area has nothing to do with any other grip type besides palm grip is completely wrong though.
MOST people use palm grip especially for normal daily tasks, with any other grip style, your hand is not on the palm rest area anywhere near as much as the palm grip. Especially if you look at the link you sent me from Razer they clearly show the palm area not being used for any other grip then a slight touch of your skin.

Id tell you what my job is but then I would have to eliminate you atm. =P
I just simply know what I think and read about others regarding similar mouse design for palm area. Lets put it at that =P

Btw if I sound rude don't be mistaken just its how I sound if you never spoke with me before =)

No offense taken. If you read my post I never called you out, only to make a possible suggestion. I currently use GX900 which is discontinued for whatever reason. Like having new shoes, at first I didn't like the feel, but now it's harder for me to switch to a mouse that's not that shape. GX900 has the round design like you said and it's very comfortable to me now. If what you say is true it's a shame because I was really looking forward to this new design.

A gaming mouse is a very personal thing. Even myself when I look at that Razer guide I have no idea how ~not~ to use palm grip because I am so used to it.

I think you should always give feedback, ROG has a very specific design style and target market that understandably may not cater to everyone.

Like myself, I actually want a wireless mouse, gaming or not, just my preference although many will say they need that hardcore responsiveness of wired, etc.

As for myself after using Mac trackpads my G55 trackpad is understandably nowhere close so to start off I got a "simple" Razer Taipan.

I don't do massive gaming sessions, maybe 2-3 hours max, maybe every night or so when games like Dead Space 3 come out.

Would love to try out the Eagle Eye in person and see whether it is suitable.
