There has been a new article posted.
Title: OCZ Eclipse Gaming Mouse Review
Here is a snippet:
"OCZ presents the follow up to the previously tested Behemoth, a mouse geared towards big-handed users, with a smaller-sized companion, the Eclipse. Don't let the size fool you, however; the peripheral..."

Beware of OCZ's products
You get what you pay for.
The "big brother" to this mouse, the OCZ Behemoth has some really bad issues.
For one, if you press caps lock twice, it triggers a profile change and also freezes your mouse until you press caps lock one more time.
If you use the caps lock button for voice chat, you'll be unable to use these mice without forcing yourself to change your voice chat hotkey.
Do you ever accidentally press caps lock? What's the first thing you'd do? Press caps lock again to turn it off right? Oh, you just changed your mouse profile and locked up your mouse.
Other than that, the mouse does occasionally stop functioning (laser stops working) and sometimes the mouse button gets stuck in the down toggled position (when you press the mouse button, it detects the mouse is up, when you let go it detects the mouse button as down).
The OCZ forum moderator says they contacted the "PM" (project manager?) about this issue and he reported that this is a slow process "understandably" to get this fixed.
Anyways before the OCZ Behemoth, I had an OCZ Dominatrix and that worked out ok
I currently have two OCZ Behemoths and both have the exact same issues (they are most likely logic issues in the mice themselves).
Also the OCZ Behemoth installs a keyboard driver which is probably what hooks on to your capslock button.

It sounds like the CAPSLOCK issue will not be "fixed" since it is "by design". This mouse has way too many problems. I wish I never bought it (although I did get it for cheap I guess...).
Here's the forum thread from the moderator at the OCZ forums:

Fix for the caps lock? Not going to happen now, it seems.
They designed it to be a way to change the profile.
