I felt it was hand-in-pocket time again and have decided to splash out on some products to review, rather than pestering friends and suppliers for loans. If I like them enough I’ll keep them, otherwise they’re going back on Ebay.

So this time I thought I’d look at two of the lesser known manufacturers – Mionix and Raptor Gaming. I’ve chosen to look at the Mionix Saiph 3200 mouse and the Alioth 320 mousepad, and from Raptor Gaming I’ve chosen the M3 mouse and their P5 mousepad.

I also thought I’d take a look at Roccat’s strange new accessory, the Apuri USB hub, to see if it’s as useful as the marketing materials would suggest.
