    The plain blue one looks rather nice but at £20 you can guess what the build quality is going to be like

    $20 actually. Or 'a smidgeon under US$20' to be precise. So less than £15. I'd make a pretty good guess about the build quality (especially from Thermaltake) but they've specifically said that it's a 'quality engineered gaming grade' mouse, so maybe worth looking at reviews when it launches?

    My Corsair Raptor LM2 was dirt cheap (£8) and matches the £50 Sidewinder X8 I used to use in build quality and gaming, so I'm happy with that at the mo.

    Re: News - Tt eSPORTS launches budget conscious TALON gaming mice

    My current 'gaming' mouse was £12 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GM-M6880-M6880-Laser-Mouse/dp/B002050WSS/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1411477552&sr=8-5&keywords=gigabyte+mouse) so this seems a little pricey for me

    Always pleased to see some more options in the budget market however!

    Haha I bought that Gigabyte mouse before my current one :-) Lost a lot of respect for Gigabyte.

    Looks similar to an old design by Razer. Handy if you are on the skint side or just need to keep a spare mouse for when your cordless one runs out unexpectedly.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it costs £20.

    With the way things are, you could be right. Should be just under £14 if you convert to pounds and add the VAT, but of course in reality all that really counts is what the seller believes people are willing to pay for it.

    The Sharkoon Drakonia is the best cheap gaming mouse I've used and still use (I got it for £20), but this looks interesting, and may be a tad cheaper.

    I like the look of this. May not be the most expensive. My present gaming mouse is a cheapo and I bought 2nd hand for about a 5iver and it's still going strong.

    my girlfriend would love the talon especially as she would stop the colour cycling on purple. Nothing else about it would matter to her

    Not expecting too much from this to be honest. But at around £15 it's worth the risk.
