Dell Canada has discounted the Alienware TactX Mouse from $79.99 down to $29.99 with free shipping today only.
The Alienware TactX mouse is designed to not just be your standard desktop mouse. Rather, it takes your gaming to a completely new level with:
5 customizable user profiles and 9 customizable buttons [as well as] vertical and horizontal scrolling with dual vertical scroll modes
The mouse also features Exclusive AlienFX customizable lighting, which will match your Alienware beautifully should you own one (I do!). They are also Windows 8 compatible if you have given in and upgraded your Windows operating system.
As the owner of two of these mice, I can give you a true report on the pluses and minuses of these beauties. First of all, they feel ergonomic in your hand and the buttons have a satisfying and solid click when you push them. The long cords was initially annoying, but when I started using my PC as an external monitor for my laptop while having the mice plugged into the laptop - suddenly the long cords become essential.
However, the cords are not of the greatest quality. Within the first few months the inner cord already broke through the braided outer. It has not affected performance whatsoever, but aesthetically it drives me insane.
I have owned my mice for a couple years now, and the scroll button just gave out on the one. This common problem with these Alienware mice seems to happen anywhere from a few months old (still covered by warranty) to never. I consider myself a heavy computer user - between homework, gaming, and working online - so I am very satisfied with the length of service time I received from that mouse. My second mouse, the one I am using right this second, is still working just fine.
Overall, I highly recommend purchasing the Alienware TactX mouse for only $30. This is the lowest price this mouse ever goes - so purchase one or two while you can. We have not seen this mouse at this price in over a year - since last Black Friday actually. I might purchase another one as my second mouse has that dead scroll-button now.
