When it comes to gaming peripherals such as the mouse, there are dime a dozen models to choose from, and the budding beginner could end up with a plethora of candidates that he or she might be paralyzed and overwhelmed with the selection. While some folks do swear by a wired mouse for superior and guaranteed reaction with each click and flick, I am quite sure that technology has moved along over the years to ensure that a wireless gaming mouse too, is capable of offering competition-grade performance. Satechi’s latest offering, the Edge Wireless Gaming Mouse, is being paraded to be a quick and efficient mouse ideal for high-speed gaming, and rest assured, it is more than qualified to handle casual browsing to boot.
The Satechi Edge wireless gaming mouse will come with seven high-function buttons, where it intends to provide gamers with an advantage over the competition while hopefully is capable of bringing one’s gaming experience to the next level. Of course, if you have hit a plateau in your gaming performance, some times changing the hardware that you use could see you elevate yourself to a whole new world.
The Satechi Edge will boast of a “Gaming Mode,” where that would then provide users with the luxury of pressing the “Turbo Button” in order to double-click with a single keystroke, hence doing away with the need for an actual double-click action. In the long run, this is going to shave seconds off your performance, and it might actually be the razor-thin difference between a victory and a defeat.
Apart from that, the Satechi Edge will also come with a “Video Control Mode” that is handy whenever one is not gaming. In this mode, the functions will switch into play/pause, fast forward/backtrack and clear screen buttons with a single click, while the scroll wheel is used to make manual adjustments to the volume.
In addition, one is able to enhance the mouse’s precision and speed with just one single touch, thanks to on-the-fly DPI adjustment. Gamers will be able to tweak the DPI between 800, 1600, 2400 or 4000 DPI, and it comes with a 250Hz or 500Hz of return rate on the speed of transmission between the computer and the mouse. Powered by a couple of AA batteries, the Satechi Edge wireless gaming mouse will retail for $19.99 each.
