The Rival 650 from Steelseries is the first true performance wireless mouse; with Quantum WirelessTM it offers a lag-free 1000Hz (1ms) gaming and just 15 minutes of fast charging will give you over ten hours of game play. Yes, you read that right. Starting with the physical design, it has all the tell-tale Steelseries visuals, those sharp edges combined with the super-smooth tactile finish, there is something a little stag beetle about it and for reasons unknown I like that.
With so many games getting released or remastered right now there is no better time to invest in some good quality gaming gear, the Kone AIMO from Roccat is a striking gaming mouse packed with features to help you becoming fully immersed in the virtual world. The original Kone was released in 2007, as the first product from Roccat, they have now combined their know-how with almost 30,000 surveyed gamers to produce the Kone AIMO.
With so many of us spending our working days behind a desk working with computers, it is important to know what effect this can have on our bodies. We already understand how sitting still for too long can cause damage to your back, and the latest research suggests there is another danger on your desk that you perhaps haven’t considered.
If you’re a fan of gadgets designed to fill a very specific niche, and we here at Gadgethead definitely are, then look no further than the Penclic mouse series, computer peripherals designed to look and handle like a pen. Depending on the model, they come with 3 or 5 buttons and connect via USB or Bluetooth. They have a shiny, plastic body in either white or black and a pen-like stem with a matt coat and smooth, rubbery feel. They come in beautiful, tubular transparent packaging and at least the one model we saw included a small cloth bag to carry the mouse in.
When this thing landed on my desk I started looking around for the product it was so obviously a remote for…wrong! This mad looking device is actually a carefully designed keyboard and mouse in one, promising to be the world’s most mobile keyboard. It is created to be used in one hand and uses a system similar to that of a short hand type writer in that you use the 16 keys individually and in chords to type the words rather than spelling out the letters individually.
The Sensei is an ambidextrous laser wireless gaming mouse created for high performance gaming on the PC and Mac and uses the latest technology to deliver the same award winning performance of the wired Sensei tournament-grade mouse. The Sensei performs incredibly and I would go as far to say when we tested it wirelessly we experience zero lag, it uses 1000 Hz, delivering a 1ms response time, as well as a high speed, proprietary 2.4 GHz wireless solution that is optimized for high data throughput and allows for exceedingly low latency the Pixart ADNS 9800 l
My first impression of this mouse was how impressive the packaging was, it showcases that this mouse is different from the start. It comes with everything you need including its own little carry case for the commute. We love it when something has the term “Swedish design” in its description as it normally means it is creative in its design and takes a deviated step away from the traditional.
In the world of gaming there is much contention in regards to the best hardware available. Seriously, I’ve seen arguments over it so when a product comes along and declares itself to be, “the best eSports mouse in the world”, (this is the equivalent of a brand claiming to be THE best football boots in the world) we just had to test it out. Would the Finalmouse Scream One edition live up to its claims?
