OC3D Review: PCXmods Mouse Grips v2.0

Late night gaming sessions with your mates; greasy corn chips; pizza and soft drink; sweaty hands - it's a recipe for disaster. We give PCXmods' Mouse Grips v2.0 a run in the OC3D Labs...but will they deliver?

Yes they are decent actually and no they aren't available outside the US as far as I know. Perhaps ST or Tekheads could get some in

When I saw the pic of the hand holding the mouse with those long nails, I thought 'Peevs better play guitar or we have some issues here' lol. Take it those are your wifes lovely nails

To the review - grats on making a potentially boring product interesting.

I had this problem whilst at Toshiba, your opening statement was pretty much spot on - it got pretty hot in there after having hardware crunching, crisps and cans of coke, small mice, big hands... Could have done with these!

If they make it to the uk for £7 I think I might too

ROFLMAO yes mate they are my missus's nails as it was just too hard to get a decent pic otherwise. Thanks for the review feedback too, and I'm glad that you found it interesting considering it was something so simple. If you manage to get some I'm positive that you'll find them just as useful as I have.

Thanks guys

Have to be fair, I mirror what u say at the start of u`r conclusion. U`r thinking gimmick.

Then u see the comments, and then the price... u can`t argue with either really.

It`s not that common to have a `grip` feel to a mouse - hey I use trackballs on everything, so meh - but I have experience a stretched-over type grip effect that was bought for some1 that apparently had "needs", HR gone mad. It does give u a different overall feeling of control.

If this makes the UK for under £10, it will sell well. But I don`t think the hopefull $13 or so price will equate quite to £7.

My question for the tester would be how the stuff holds up after a long while ? Do the pads peel or become annoyingly unsticky ?

Great product for the market imo, needs some marketing.

Compared to things like 10,000dpi mice and £80 'gamer' keyboards I certainly think these grips are less of a gimmick. Personally my hand has never slipped off a mouse during gaming, but then I don't really have sweaty hands (or eat during games).

The price makes them less gimmicky?

I think if you have a mouse which has a rubber grip (my last 5 mice have, even my boomslang1000 - 1999) you don't need this sort of thing.

It is aimed at 'gamers' and most gamer mice are rubberised, so not sure who would buy it

Also I agree, I've never eaten while playing a match.

Never
