Evo-G MB1 Gaming Mouse Bungee

Testing, thoughts and conclusion

Testing and thoughts
 
Testing was pretty simple for the MB1 Mouse Bungee, although you will have to rely on my opinions rather than any numbers (how DO you quantify a mouse bungee!?!). I set it up on my desk and played games, surfed and worked with it in place. I then tested the exact same things without the bungee after using it to see how I felt before and after. The bungee was tested over a period of a couple of weeks to ensure I gave it a fair go.

As you can see, the MB1 fits a mouse cord nicely in the grip of it's two clips. It's worth noting that the rear clip does let the cord go if you move the bungee a lot  but really once you've set it up to your liking this shouldn't be an issue.
 
Test Results
 
I found that once I had set up the bungee for use with a little bit of slack as shown it really did the trick and meant that I never lacked cable whilst gaming. I did find that sometimes if I moved my desk around or my mouse-mat around the rear cord became disconnected (as I said above), but this was easily rectified and never on one occasion  did the orange top clip lose the cable, it was held firmly.
 
The mouse bungee MB1 did exactly what it said it would do and helped me organise my mouse cable much better than before I had it. It's solidly built and the weights in it are enough to weigh it down without being too heavy.
 
Conclusion
 
There's not really a whole lot more to say about the Evo-G MB1 Mouse Bungee. It certainly helps you keep the cable in place and gives you enough slack not to get in a mess whilst gaming.
 
Price and availability are an issue with the MB1 as it is currently only available in the US, priced at an RRP of $14.99 @ Frozen CPU and Performance PC's, both of whom ship to the UK at a reasonable price (if you're willing to pay pnp). At that price I think it's a good item to pop in your shopping basket, especially if you really get in a muddle with your mouse cables.
 
Can I recommend the Mouse Bungee overall? Well, it's hard to say due to limited UK availability and a very focused market, but if you can scoop one up I think it's worth getting a Mouse Bungee to tidy those cables.
 
The Evo-G MB1 Mouse Bungee gets a Recommended Award for being a nice addition to your desk.
