Page 3 - GIGABYTE M6980
If you want the best performance, it's time to gear up. In part two of our gaming accessories roundup, we're checking out the best gaming mice that can give you the killer edge.
Fresh off the press is the new laser mouse from GIGABYTE’S new gaming stable. This beastie is the laser-equipped guided missile of new gaming mice. The first thing to notice with the M6980 is the big, domed design. It’s not a small mouse by any stretch, so if you’re a fister, then this mouse will suit you well. The pinch-waisted design on this big mouse makes it just as quick in the hand as smaller mice. Strictly for right handers though.
Secondly, the clickable scroll wheel looks different to most other mice, but it’s a great new design. As this scroll wheel also rocks side to side, the rubberised wheel has vertical grooves, rather than horizontal, making this a useful feature for once. There’s an adjustable DPI button behind the scrollwheel and a button to enable the Ghost software package for macros and adjustments.
Our gripe with this mouse is with some of the buttons. The left and right buttons are great, as good as most in the roundup, but the thumb buttons on the left hand side of the mouse feel really clicky and plastic, which leaves us feeling unimpressed.Available from GIGABYTE, retailing for $35.
