Gaming in extremely large resolutions and fast paced battles requires a high speed, ready-for-anything mouse. The OCZ Equalizer provides six DPI sensitivity levels (400-2500) and allows gamers to seamlessly transition between each setting in the midst of a battle with a conveniently placed button. The Equalizer’s scroll wheel displays a different color LED for each DPI setting to provide instant visual confirmation of the chosen sensitivity level.

Implementing the OCZ Equalizer’s deadly 2500 DPI optimizes the fluidity of gameplay on high resolution LCDs. Hardcore gamers that play the latest First Person Shooter titles will benefit from the lightening fast speed that 2500 DPI provides.

The Equalizer features the innovative OCZ “Triple Threat” button. Gamers can fire three times with just one click making it easier than ever to hit the target and gain a competitive advantage. At the same time, the ingenious Triple Threat button is a useful tool in everyday computing by turning double-click operations, such as opening files and applications, into just one-touch commands.

pff, if your really hardcore you only need 1 shot. :D

Also, you can turn on single click in windows if you really wanted it to work that way.

Interesting, but I still don't think it can hold a candle to a G5. It looks like you would have to click to get through all dpi settings, so if you wanted to go down a level it would take 5 clicks or so.

Doesn't sound like you can fine tune each setting either, as they would have clearly said it if you could. Thumbs down from me, they need to try again.

While I'm picking on it, the ultra thin cord is a turn off here. I could probably rip that right in half if it gets caught. Thanks for sharing though.

I agree with everything you said. I just thought it was interesting that they were getting into peripherals. I wonder what will be next...

and |MaguS|, I haven't seen any reference to a price...

I haven't seen a direct price quote either, but somewhere they mentioned it is modeled from something else that was under $30. That is probably the major selling point of it if that is true.

Thats exactly what I thought.

And I'm not a big fan of this "triple threat" button. Seriously, is that necessary? Depending on how fast it repeats that could almost be seen as a cheat in some games where semi automatic weapons can be fired as fast as you can hit the button.

I guess more competition is good though. Logitech will continue to get my money because their mice are fantastic, but if things like this make the prices lower (not likely, but it'd be nice) I'm all for them.
