Mice. Nope, not the squeaking, eaten by cats kind. The kind you use to move the little arrowy thing on your computer. Unless you’re all touchscreen. Hmmm… that’s actually kind of an interesting digression: With how ubiquitous touchscreens are becoming, how many years left does the mouse really have? Not too many, I’ll bet. So, if you’re going to use one, you should probably use one that works great, makes computing easier, is super comfortable, and looks AWESOME. See?
Well, you’re welcome. I found it. Also, at around $18.99 (for now, anyway) it doesn’t break the bank. Let’s tackle this in the categories I listed above, shall we?
It works great. How great? SO GREAT! I mean, this one’s kinda subjective depending on your needs. My needs are simple. I don’t need programmable buttons or anything like that, and if you do I’d bet you need a mouse that costs WAY more than $19. Here’s what I need. When I move the mouse, the cursor moves. No skipping or nonsense. Smoooooooth. I get that here. When I click a button, I expect an action to take place. With this mouse it does. Good.
But what about all these buttons? I’ll break them down for you: You have your normal left/right click buttons. Cool. A mouse missing those is not a mouse. It also has your often-standard scroll wheel which is also a button. You know what that does. It scrolls and scroll-locks. “But Dave, what are the two other buttons in the middle?” I’ll tell you. The uppermost button is a triple click. For gaming you can use it to fire multiple shots. At work (and yes, I use this at work. More on this later) I use it to conveniently open files I’d normally double-click. Why? Because I can. The bottom-middle button controls sensitivity. How fast does the cursor move when you move the mouse (really it’s dots/inch, but it amounts to the same thing). There are 4 settings from “slow and steady” to “fast and furious”. I generally keep it on the second slowest. I call that “nice and smooth.” The two buttons on the side, you ask? Forward and backward. I’m not going to lie, they take a bit of getting used to. But it’s all about convenience, isn’t it? No more clicking the back button in Chrome because I’ve got it right on my mouse. BOOM.
Since I obviously covered “makes computing easier” along with “works great,” let’s move on to super comfortable. It’s super comfortable. The thumb rest is awesome, and on the other side is a nice indent for your ring finger giving you great grip and control. Your fingers lay gently on the long L/R buttons. Comfort.
Did I mention it looks awesome? It does. IT’S ORANGE! I HAVE AN AWESOME ORANGE MOUSE! You don’t. But you could. Remember that. Sure, it comes in black too. But… why? ORANGE! STAND OUT! I’m using it in my office. Black monitor, black varidesk, black keyboard, black speakers… boring. ORANGE MOUSE! BOOM!
Oh, it lights up. Did I mention that? I might have forgotten. It lights up under the main buttons and the Morzzor branding. You can change the color using a button combo listed in the instructions. In fact, you can see me do it here in my video:
So there you have it. I’ve literally found nothing about this that I don’t like. It’s comfy, works great, looks awesome, and has all the functionality I need. Also, it’s relatively inexpensive. Enjoy!
Live the Dream!
