UNBOXED: Reviewing the Satechi Edge Wireless Gaming Mouse
Perhaps one of the most underrated computer accessories out there, the right kind of mouse can really make or break the user’s computing experience. Ask any computer gamer and they’ll tell you, the right kind of mouse (one packed with more buttons than a three-piece suit) is the difference between being a noob (look it up) and a world-conquering badass.
While it might not find itself on the top shelf, or even the middle shelf, as far as computer gaming accessories are concerned, the Satechi Edge Wireless Gaming Mouse is the type of product that will have broad appeal among the less-hardcore gaming market as well as consumers looking for a superior mouse-ing experience. And it comes with a price tag that will have any casual gamer excited: $25.
The seven different buttons on the Edge mouse perform a variety of functions that truly can improve the way the user interacts with their computer. Of course, there are the standard left and right buttons as well as the scroll wheel. Then things get a little fancy: the turbo click button (next to the left clicker) lets the user double-click a item on the screen without having to actually press the button twice. Also on the left side of the mouse are two unique buttons that provide a quick page up and page down function. And, when flipped into video control mode, these clickers allow the user to quickly fast forward and rewind. Finally, right behind the scroll wheel is a button that will rotate through four different DPI modes—800, 1600, 2400, and 4000 DPI. The adjustable resolution enables the user to move the cursor faster (or slower) across the screen.
