Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Meduza HDST gaming mouse has a ton of specs and features that I am about to cover, but I want to go over the basics first. From extreme right to left the Meduza measures 73mm, is 122mm long and stands about 42mm at the highest point of the curved top. A combination of a rubberized surface for your thumb and the three buttons, a flat textured plastic from the palm rest and right and left click buttons, then a bit of shiny plastic to keep your ring finger and pinky comfortable on the other side. All told there are seven buttons on the Meduza and six of those are fully programmable, while the seventh button is used for the sole purpose of switching between the five profiles if the driver and control panel are used to set them.
Now here is the trick with the Meduza HDST. Since it uses an ARM processor to control things between the Meduza's functioning components and any PC in conjunction with the 128Kb of onboard memory, once this mouse is programmed, it becomes plug and play anywhere you go. There is a disc containing all the software you need and in that control panel you gain access to personalizing the DPI setting, polling rate, which type of sensor to go with, if you want angle snapping and at what distance the sensors should stop tracking when I lift the mouse off the pad. On top of that there is a full macro setup section that will allow for any configuration, even those with time delays.
The setup is simple too, you just click record, go about setting the macro and when done stop recording. Then you just have to try it out and see if you did it correctly. With five profiles and six buttons to program, the Meduza can offer up to 25 macros on top of the basic functionality of the configuration. Once everything is set the way you want it, it will keep all of your settings anywhere you go without the need for drivers on that PC.
I seem to have gotten a bit carried away on what this Meduza brings to the table, but it seems that this mouse offers controls over all of the best in mouse technology, for everyone. FPS gamers will like on the fly DPI profiles and even the MMO guys can love it for its programmability. At this point I love it for its comfort and ease of use.
The real issue is with most startup companies, pricing for such a device is usually sent out with an astronomically high price tag. With the Meduza HDST, this just isn't the case. The pricing as seen on the chart will be set at an MSRP of $79.99 when it's released in the States. For those over the pond, there are about seven e-tailers offering the Meduza for average price of £68 via Google.co.uk shopping. It isn't the cheapest solution, but I have owned mice that were more expensive and offered less. From here I will just get to it and show you why the Meduza HDST gaming mouse is a real threat to the competition!
