Esports News – In order to perform well in gaming, you need quality hardware to back you up. Something that has a technological advantage over your opponent and can stand the test of time—and probably, the gamer’s aggressive nature when a game becomes too intense. This is especially true for gaming mice, you need to have one that ensures durability, precision, accuracy, and total control.
This week on Tipify’s Gaming Equipment Series, we break down the most important aspects of a gaming mouse when it comes to two models approved by many professional gamers: the Razer Deathadder Elite and BenQ Zowie EC2-A. If you’re curious as to why these two are the top picks for many enthusiasts and want to find out which one is perfect for your style, lifestyle, and hobby, we share with you a comparison that points out the major features of each mouse.
Razer Deathadder Elite
At a glance, you will see that Razer Deathadder Elite avoided unnecessary features and gimmicks as much as it can. It’s $83 USD price tag provides everything that a gamer needs—no more, no less. You get 50 million clicks per key, resolution accuracy of 99.4%, 16,000 DPI optical sensor, and true tracking at 450 Inches Per Second (IPS). With all things mentioned, it is time to say that this mouse redefined the standards of gaming equipment.
The previous and current versions of the mouse remained the same over years, mainly because gamer prefer its contoured and ergonomic design that fits comfortably in the hand. Reviewers and gamers, however, sometimes criticize its almost non-existent RGB lightning during use and the absence of on-board memory for fast profile switch.
BenQ Zowie EC2-A
Much cheaper and simpler than Razer’s Deathadder Elite is the BenQ Zowie EC2-A. It costs $71 USD and can already give you a list of all the features every professional gamer approves. For gamers who are fond of first-person-shooter video games, the adjustable DPI of the mouse is perfect for you. You can choose which DPI step fits a certain game: 400, 800, 1600 and 3200. Additionally, you won’t be needing any special drivers or software since the mouse supports plug and play, 5 buttons, and all types of operating systems.
The only problem you may encounter in this mouse is the ergonomic design exclusive for right-handed users. Left-hand gamers can also use it but they might have a hard time finding the right position. Regardless, it offers users a bigger room for wrist movements because the shape of the right side of the mouse is well rounded.
