[Frontpage News]October Contest - NZXT Avatar Mouse!
« on: October 14, 2008, 07:59:37 AM »
Visit the contest page if you need more info.

This month we are hosting a "Show me yours and you can win mine" contest.

BCCHardware.com and NZXT are proud to present our October Giveaway! The prize? The brand new NZXT Avatar Gaming Mouse! This mouse is designed for gamers and features an impressive 2600dpi resolution.  It also has adjustable DPI on-the-fly.  One beautiful thing about this mouse is that it is ambidextrous and works equally well for either "righties" or "lefties".  More information can be found over at NZXT's website.


How can I enter you ask?  This contest is a little different than other ones here at BCCHardware.  In order to get in to win, you'll need to send a picture of your old mouse and post in this thread.  Your picture counts as an entry and if you send in pictures of more than one mouse, they all count for entries in contest.  For instance if you have an old "Zoltrix" ball mouse post that picture, you can still take a picture of your Logitech Mouseman Dual Optical mouse for another entry.  Please keep one picture per post.

Bonus!!! If you follow me on Twitter - www.twitter.com/bcchardware, you will earn an extra 2 entries.  Twitter me your forum handle so I can award you the extra entries!

Thats all, its that simple!  Any other questions about this contest can be sent to admin@bcchardware.com
You'll need to be registered in the forum to take full advantage of this contest so get started!!

Contest Rules:

   1. Contest Ends October 31th at 11:59PM MST. Winners will be announced shortly thereafter.
   2. NZXT will ship the prizes to anywhere in Canada or the United States for free.
   3. Prizes will be drawn using the random number generator at random.org
   4. Multiple entries are welcome.
   5. Any other questions can be sent to admin@bcchardware.com

** Note:  This is a great mouse for anyone, gamer or not!! **

The best way to attach a photo to your post is through the "Additional Options" link below the text input box.  Please keep the photos below 256KB.

Example Entry:

Count me in, my Dual Optical has no feet left and the hot-glue gun glue doesn't glide that well. . .

The mouse arrived a week or two ago but I tend to be lazy at times however its better later than never so here are some pics:



The NZXT Avatar does "feel" small however it is quite comfortable and the only dislike I have thus far are the side buttons (I attribute this dislike to its ambidextrous design). Overall this is a great mouse O0

Well it looks like this prize didn't last too long. After about a weeks use the mouse no longer works. To bad too as it was a great mouse. Heres to hoping that NZXT will send me a replacement but it looks like they might not :'(

Yes I know I won it a while ago but I never used until about a week ago.

That's terrible! Hopefully you get yours replaced, or fixed. I'm still waiting for mine from the Podcast Contest BCCHardware was hosting a while back in early August to show up. Here's to hoping that this one lasts more than a week!

I just confirmed that the prizes will be shipped out this week.  There's always a delay from the time I tell the PR company to the time it gets to NZXT, back to the PR to me (confirm) and then shipped.  Hopefully stuff will be there in a couple of weeks.

FYI, I still have the test Avatar and it works flawless...

Mine(Avatar) must have been a dud because it having a one week lifespan is quite sad.

Does your test Avatar feel warm on its underside near or around where the label is? Mine did when it was working which I thought was odd.
