Saitek is a well-known gaming peripheral company and I myself have reviewed a number of their products very favorably in the past. To date, I have dealt with the upper echelon in looking at the brilliant Flight Control Center and bombproof Eclipse keyboard. This time I will be taking a look at an affordable gaming mouse that can be found at prices ranging from 18 to 30 dollars.
Once pulling the device from the basic but neat looking package, you find yourself with a CD, a brief pamphlet and the mouse itself. One of the first things you will notice is the Saitek gaming mouse feels a lot like how an entry-level Kia Cerrato may feel. It will get you to work daily with little fanfare or hassle, but you will end up wondering whether life is worth living if you intend to spend numerous hours a day with your new purchase. There are two ways to look at this. One is that, like a Kia, you are getting quite a lot for what you are paying. The other way of looking at its features is by putting it up against some serious competition from Logitech and Razer. My thinking is that if you buy a Kia, you likely won’t be racing up alongside a Lotus Exige anytime soon. So we will measure it keeping its value for money firmly in mind.
