PCXmods Mouse Grips v2.0

Mouse Grips in use

After my initial reservations about the product, I am pleased to report that I have really grown accustomed to having them on my mouse. You can see from the image above (and no those aren't my nails), just how customisable the product really is. The Mouse Grips would lend themselves well to any given situation that requires additional grip; as a matter of fact I have attached a few small off-cuts to the sides of my mobile phone for additional security.

Whilst many may consider the product a novelty, for those who own mice without a lot of grip you will notice the difference that the Mouse Grips make towards control of your mouse.

Also worthy of a mention here is the fact that the adhesive backing on the Mouse Grips doesn't leave any sticky residue remaining on the surface of your mouse. Typically, many gum-based adhesives leave a tell-tale residue that can lead to unsightly 'balling' if left unchecked after removal. However, just be sure that you have your Mouse Grips in the right position before fixing because the adhesive backing will be significantly reduced should you need to reposition any of them.

Cleaning the Mouse Grips is a cinch...All it takes is a quick wipe down with a damp cloth and the grip is restored.

According to the manufacturer, Mouse Grips should be good for 6 months of continuous wear and tear if regularly maintained through cleaning. But considering that there is essentially enough of the material included for two whole applications, the US$12.95 purchase price is more than reasonable in my opinion. In fact it's down-right cheap.

Pro's

+ Price.
+ More than a novelty, it really does provide additional grip on your mouse.
+ Limitless application.
+ Two applications provided in the packaging.
+ Easy to customise.
+ Quality

Cons

- None really, but some may not take to the Graphite colour scheme nor the look of the Mouse Grips.

Mr. Smith
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 tooQuote

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 guysQuote
