Gamers whether they range from the scale of a casual player to a professional gamer, the mouse poses to be one of the most important aspects to gaming. The mouse provides the player with precise movement across the screen and specialized gaming mice tend to have specialized buttons along the side and top of the mouse to allow players to have increased precision within game and allow them to have niche inputs that are specialized towards the player.
Therefore, any gamer can be excited about the new mouse coming out from Thermaltake. Thermaltake is releasing the new Ventus X Plus gaming mouse, which has specialized features, which allows the player to view basic metrics such as distance traveled, mouse speed, clicks, actions per minute, and liftoffs. These basic metrics can be viewed via an Thermaltake’s desktop/mobile application.
However, it should be duly noted that the Bluetooth feature is only used for Thermaltake’s application. It is interesting to note that the mouse is wired.
As a gamer, it is important to note that having a wired mouse compared to a wireless mouse makes quite a bit of difference. Because the mouse is wired, it naturally has an edge against a wireless mouse since a wired mouse usually has a faster response time compared to a wireless mouse, which has a slower response time since the information from the mouse to the computer must be transmitted from the actions of the mouse to the computer.
If one wants to pick up Thermaltake’s Ventus X Plus gaming mouse, one can pick it up for only $49.99, which is relatively cheap compared to that of other gaming mouses in the market, such as Razer or Madcatz.
