Category: Wireless Mouse
Bought at: Datablitz (SM Marikina)
So my wireless A4Tech mouse finally died after a year and a half of gaming and video editing abuse. For P650 at the time, it was a good deal. But come this time around, the same product was priced around P900 already.
Then I saw a new product line of A4Tech for P650 which I bought with no hesitation- wrong move. It started out nice and smooth, but got laggy and buggy as hell when things got busy e.g. when in the middle of a raid in game where you need pin-point accuracy to click skills and abilities. The same goes with video editing: even with a 1080p screen, the user interface of Adobe Premiere and After Effects feels cluttered so you’ll be needing a high-accuracy mouse to keep up with all your projects.
The next day after buying that crappy A4Tech mouse, I went back to SM Marikina’s Datablitz to buy their Elephant Mouse per my sister’s recommendation. I did, and after testing it out, I’m confident to say it’s the best bang for my buck I got for any mouse!
Not sure where else they sell this, but I’ve only seen them in Datablitz stores- SM Marikina, Gateway Cubao, Glorietta, Alabang Town Center, and Robinsons Magnolia are some of the branches I remember. For a very affordable P500, they come in brown, lime green, pink, black and white.
Interested? Just look out for this type of box!
Its weird packaging sporting designs that resemble those of chocolate food products with bits of seemingly intentional wrong grammar only indicate one thing: JAPAN, which is kind of a good thing!
Turn it upside down and a familiar face shall greet you- it’s NHK’s official Mascot, Domo!
Specifications: It’s wireless, operates in two Triple-A batteries, has on/off switch, the standard left and right click, middle scroll that also functions as a third click, DPI button that can adjust the mouse’s sensitivity, and two thumb buttons on the left side that initially functions as a back and forward button for web browsers.
It also has a smooth matte finish that separates it from the icky-sticky plastics out there.
Why not buy a cheaper but higher quality wired mouse? Well I would if I could, but my current PC desk is abnormal in a way that unless you’re willing to tolerate eyesores caused by wiring, you’ve no choice but to resort to going wireless. Also being able to use the PC other than your desk ups the experience!
After a week of use and abuse, I’d say this is the best wireless mouse for me now that’s under a thousand pesos- and it’s only P500! It’s smooth-flowing all the way, all the time. Who knew that editing videos and playing FFXIV, both of which require pinpoint accuracy in terms of mouse navigation, would be all the more fun just because of a single mouse? I guess this is where ‘It’s the little things that matter’ comes in.
