There's nothing more controversial then explaining and testing a mouse. So I've been using the mouse for a little while now just to check out how well I like it in gaming and normal desktop usage. Now I'm still using the good old Microsoft Trackball Explorer series. Why on earth they stopped making these nifty things, beats me.
Anyway, the Force M7 THOR ... the mouse is responsive and everything you can expect from a mouse in this price-range. Testing a mouse is a very subjective thing to do as everybody has different needs, experiences and requirements.
The mouse sits very comfortable in your hand. At the top end it might be a hint too big for some people, but that is very personal. Overall there is a very good synergy based on ergonomics and accessibility to the buttons.
If you feel the need for programmability, it just isn't possible. There are no macro programmable options aside from the buttons that can be changed with rather default actions like backspace.
Personally I really like the selectable DPI levels, it just really makes the difference in first person shooters with fast high action, versus say a sniper level where you quickly want to lower your DPI precision so that your mouse pointer can be steered towards your target more accurately.
But again -- The mouse does feel right in many ways, however since it's been adapted to both left and right hand user it does feel a little square on the top end of the mouse.
Playing games then. The mouse is responsive, very responsive in Battlefield 3, you easily navigate through everything in the field. Once you reach your enemy and get into a shootout you'll quickly cycle to a lower DPI level so you can aim a little more accurately. Selection of the DPI works nice and fast.
Here where we like the feature and ability to switch DPIs on the fly in games.
Example: when I'm sniping I want precision and the mouse to function not too erratically; so I set it at low DPI with the flick of a button. When I take my shot and have to move out of the danger zone quickly I take another weapon and go into a more shoot 'em up scenario; then I want that mouse to behave really fast and could take it to a higher DPI. The difference is really distinct and handy.
The mouse can scan 6000 DPI - I do enjoy this mouse. Precision is really good. And thanks to the use of a wire you do not have lag or slowdown that you might experience (as a hardcore gamer) with wireless mice.
So the response time and accuracy certainly feel good as well. The laser optical engine combines high precision movement with light weight, making the mouse easier to move quickly and repeatedly.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper B5 review Let's review the Gigabyte G1.Sniper B5, which is based on the budet B85 chipset from Intel. See B85 based motherboards typically end up in business desktops and normally are limited from overclocking. Well, that changes with the Gigabyte G1.Sniper B5 ! So small price, nice features and tweakability ? We just have to check that out. Oh and you'll get many USB 3.0 ports and of course an improved and enhanced audio solution (albeit that really is a software layer sitting on top of the Realtek ALC 898 codec). Be sure to check out this review.
