Qpad 5K Pro Gaming Laser Mouse Review
Andy Ruffell / 9 years ago
We cater mostly for the high end market of products here at eTeknix, with an extensive range of reviews from cases to motherboards and most frequently; graphics cards. Whilst a system is made up of these important components, you’d be lost without the simple peripherals that help you navigate through your operating system or aid in making that extra kill in your favourite first person shooter. Without these simple, overlooked tools, you’d be lost, staring at a screen with nowhere to turn.
Of course we are talking about the likes of a mouse, something that we often take for granted. If we go back 15 years and take a look at how computers were used, I’m pretty sure we can all safely say that we were using a beige/ivory coloured mouse with 2 buttons and a scroll wheel, all crafted together with a roller ball for guidance. Shortly after this period, optical mice became popular offering more precision than a ball mouse and improved accuracy. We also saw the shape of the mice being designed to fit your hand more comfortably.
This was all key features that were needed as more people used computers, and for longer durations. We then saw the inclusion of extra buttons for simple navigation between windows and extra buttons for gaming. Optical also took a backseat to laser and Bluetooth mice. Wireless was becoming more popular and consumers bought into all the hype. Some users didn’t buy into the wireless fad that others did, and instead decided to stick with the trusted wired mouse. Wireless still went in the right direction, but the market place was and still is big enough to cater for both types of mouse.
