Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Aesthetically, the Reaper is mostly matte black due to the rubberized coating used on the majority of the top surfaces. The left side of the mouse offers users three buttons. The top offers seven functions if you are including the scroll wheel. While the right side is free of buttons, it is designed for comfort and grip. A few new things are found in this design as well. There is a very large button to the left for DPI; it is mentioned as a Clutch button. There also is a metal palm plate on the reaper that is said to be customizable. While the plate could be painted, or could be 3D printed in other materials, the idea here is the contrast and passive cooling of the hand resting on top.
The Reaper also has a solid aluminum scroll wheel. This is diamond cut for grip, but other than the heft making selection a bit more purposeful, it is there more for looks and to go along with the palm plate. The last bit that may entice potential buyers is the fact that the Reaper offers LED backlighting. It is white only, but the Reaper also offers a pair of headlights as well as an off angled stripe over the top that separates the metal palm plate from the rubberized front half of the design.
On the inside, there is a mix of newer components that should help the Reaper be all it can be. Tracking is taken care of with an AVAGO ADNS9800 laser sensor; that is currently in all of the hottest selling laser mice. Then, to take on the majority of use, under the right and left click buttons, users are offered five million click Omron switches. For other controls, they are then backed with HC switches that feel very similar to the Omron's, but do not offer the same lifespan. There is also a Sonin MCU incorporated to enable a bit of onboard storage for Macros and profiles, as well as to take control of all communications and functionality of the Reaper.
After looking around for locations carrying the Reaper, inside of the USA, it seems a bit early for the Reaper. Although, there is an eBay listing for one at near $100. From what we can tell, the Reaper is available over the pond, and is being sold with the MSRP of just over $50. With some quick Google-fu, at the current exchange rate, we see that that would be a U.S. pricing of just over $80.
As with most devices to hit this side of the pond, it is usually more a pound to dollar straight conversion and has little to do with the actual value of said dollar. Without any word on defined U.S. pricing, we will be looking at this Reaper on the average of around $65 US dollars to be fair to all concerned, but it is now definitely time to see exactly what it is you are getting for the price.
