A lachesis user will say Lachesis, a Logitech user will say G9.

Hold out for a couple of weeks and get a Mamba... 5600dpi, wireless AND wired, your choice.

You can grab a G5, much cheaper and still a great mouse.

Razer's site says they start shipping Feb. 1. Could be out at retailers and e-tailers before that, as the Lachesis was.
