Written by on February 6, 2020 in Technology with 0 Comments

As we all know, online gaming is very popular these days. To play your best, you need a good gaming mouse. Here are some factors you have to check before you choose the perfect gaming mouse for you.

1. DPI

Many mouse ads are advertising their high DPI, but what is the DPI, is the higher the Gaming mouse DPI, the better?

The mouse DPI refers to how far the cursor moves on the screen for every inch the mouse moves. High DPI means that if you move the mouse a small distance, the cursor on the screen can move a long distance. In terms of user experience, DPI intuitively reflects the speed of cursor movement, but low DPI is suitable for more subtle operations. From a daily use point of view, the DPI of an ordinary mouse is sufficient, and the specific value needs to be adjusted according to the resolution of your screen.

2. Number of keys

For the student party, a mouse with five or so buttons can almost meet the needs of most mainstream games and daily learning. More keys will not only increase the price of the mouse but also seem redundant for non-professional players.

3. Optical Engines

The primary consideration of optical engines is the two indexes of resolution and refresh rate. But the current mouse, refresh rate can almost meet the needs of gaming and office environments. For the student party, whether it is to meet the needs of mainstream games or to meet daily learning, the CPI value of the optical engine is about 5000.

4. Shape design

The right-handed mouse is more in line with the needs of FPS games in terms of grip; the symmetrically designed mouse can take into account both left and right-handed users, but often feels similar. Of course, in addition to design, the size of the mouse is also critical. A large mouse is very easy to hold, and a small mouse is more suitable for flexible operation.

5. Whether it has RGB backlight

Like a mechanical keyboard, having an RGB backlight means a gorgeous appearance and more intense light.Still, the mouse's demand for RGB backlight is not as strong as a mechanical keyboard, and its impact is minimal.

6. Do you have a professional driver?

Having a professional driver can not only customize the macro keys and light modulation of the mouse but also adjust the basic parameters of the mouse. Some drivers can even count the data of mouse operation.

7. Wired or wireless

When choosing a mouse, if it is only for daily use, many people will choose a wireless or Bluetooth mouse, but the receiver of the wireless mouse also needs to occupy the position of the USB interface. At the same time, the Bluetooth connection is secure and unstable, and the wireless mouse saves power. Low refresh rate, low refresh rate, and little battery life are not reasonable, so many people will tend to choose a wired mouse. The wired mouse is wired without battery power, it can be plugged in and used at the same time, and the performance will be significantly better than the wireless mouse.
