As a PC gamer I’ve always wanted to try a gaming mouse to see what all the hoopla is all about, however, the price tag on these things always turned me away. When Looking through Amazon, I think I’ve found the answer. This is also something to consider if you are looking for gift ideas for PC gamers.
Gift ideas for PC gamers.
The technical jargon describes it as:
- 7 buttons including the scroll wheel.
- Optical tracking that can work on almost any surface.
- Adjustable DPI (max 5500DPI). So that means fine control of the mouse cursor.
- Ultra-precise Scroll Wheel.
- Customizable LED colors.
As with most gaming mice, expect this to be larger than your average normal one.
The reviews on Amazon look favorable and the prices are listed at around $10 to $15 (USD) so I’ll probably bite the bullet and get one for myself. That way, I wouldn’t feel that bad if the experience doesn’t live up to my expectations. So excuse me while I’ll download Far Cry 4.

Sometimes we just happen to be using our laser mouse on a surface that just isn't compatible. I'm talking about surfaces where no matter how much you move your mouse, that mouse pointer on screen hardly moves an inch. Sure we could use a sheet of paper or the nearest book that's handy. However, I prefer to use one of these at home. Using a sheet of paper or a book just makes my desk look messier.
