– One of the first things one can notice about the Zen is its small size. Think of it like a fatter but shorter iPod.
– It is very light and you can hardly notice you are carrying it.
– No software installation required. You can add songs to it in their properly named folders almost as easy as if it were a digital camera.

– Cheaper than some Apple products, with almost the same quality of construction. Amazing value!

SteelSeries – Pro Gaming Laser Mouse & Pad

In the real world, or at least in mine I found the XAI to work well be it surfing, FPS, RTS or MMOs. I think the key is it functions well out of the box even if you don’t do any custom setting, but if you want to get specific it has the means to do so that makes it good for gamers of all sorts.
