Light 'em up!
Next up on the desk we have the Stinger mouse; a colourful rodent that boasts some high profile specs and a garish colour scheme.
The feature set on this mouse is pretty impressive, I have to say. It supports a 4-way scroll, two side macro buttons, a DPI changer and macro selector. Coupled with a good precision laser unit inside and comfortable fit in the hand, this makes for some serious competition in the mainstream market.
One feature I particularly like is the colour changing scroll wheel. Kudos to CyberSnipa for finding an innovative way to indicate DPI mode!
Now that we've gushed about features, it's time to see how she plays. Back into Team Fortress 2 for some more body count.
After playing with it for a while, I get a good feel for the grip and the weight, using the weight pod to add and subtract weight in the mouse. It's a nice solid feeling mouse and it certainly performs as well as any other laser mouse. A longer run will give a better indication of ergonomics.
After a good marathon session, I must say I'm taken with the ergonomics of this squeeker. It hasn't left my hand cramping or my fingers, feeling numb like some mice I've had in the past.
The only downside I have to say with this mouse is some of the colour choices. Red is not my first choice. The grips and detailing on the mouse are not too bad, but the USB cable being red makes this look a little weird.
The tri-colour LED, while creative in function is not necessarily in good keeping with aesthetics. It could be made more acceptable if the colour on the crosshair logo on the mouse-butt was colour changing too.
Desktop fashion aside, this mouse rocks hard. I would definitely consider this as a replacement to any sub-standard mouse on your desk at current. It's proven its worth inside and out of games and the desktop environment.
