Reaper Edge Gaming Mouse Author: faceless105 -- Posted: 2008-06-02
One area that we've always loved diving into is gaming hardware. This stuff is usually at the top of its game. This means quality hardware with lots of great features. Today I'm happy to announce we'll be reviewing the Reaper Edge gaming mouse by Ideazon.
Right out of the box, the Reaper Edge looks great. The first thing I notice is that the mouse feels pretty solid. Typically something we've been seeing lately is the option to add weights to your mouse, but this wasn't something they needed to do with this mouse since it already feels solid.
The Reaper Edge is a four button mouse with a scroll wheel. The top of the mouse comes with a real nice carbon fiber design. On the thumb side of the mouse we have a rubber no slip pad where two of the buttons are located. The rubber scroll wheel is specially designed to replicate a tire tread to give you extra grip while looking original.
Directly below the scroll wheel is the DPI button. This is one of the bigger features of gaming mice. The DPI button allows for in-game changes to mouse sensitivity. This is especially convenient if you go from driving a tank to using a sensitive sniper rifle in the same game. The DPI button allows you to toggle between five different DPI settings, 800, 1200, 1600, 2000, and 3200 DPI.
Now that we've given you the specs it's time for the first hand experience.
The mouse feels very comfortable. It's roughly the typical size, so it's not to large or small. The two side buttons are both easily accessible as well. The rubber tire grip scroll wheel is a nice touch as well and feels very easy to locate since it's a bit bigger and wider then a typical scroll wheel.
The DPI changes instantly, there isn't any delay. There are also LED indicators on the mouse to let you quickly know what DPI you're at, which is a very handy feature. Moving the mouse around on my desk, I don't pick up any jumpy movement, everything is very smooth. The surface friction also feels very minimal, which is especially great for gaming.
Another cool point I wanted to hit on was the customization. This is another great marker of Ideazon. Similar to their Merc line of Gaming Keyboards, everything on the Reaper Edge is customizable. While you don't need to install anything to use the mouse, if you do choose to install their software you get this added benefit.
I'd like to thank Ideazon for the opportunity to review their Reaper Edge gaming mouse. With the features of customizable buttons, great feel, and range of DPI settings, this is a win in my book. If anyone is looking for a new mouse, especially for gaming, the Reaper Edge looks great, has a number of features and performs great.
If anyone has any comments or questions I'd love to hear them :)
