Leetgion is sending their new Hellion gaming mouse over for review so I wanted to give everyone a quick preview. The most exciting news is that the Hellion is the first mouse to feature Cherry MX blue switches. These are rated at 50 million operations. Wendell and I shall have to build a robot to test that.
They say that the mouse is optimized for RTS gaming. This makes sense when you take into account the durability of the Cherry MX blue switches. It will probably be great for games like Diablo and Tourchlight too. I'll try it with a few RTS games, some indie games, and even some fps games. Let's check out the specs:
- Avago 9500 Laser Mouse Sensor (100 to 5000DPI)
- Four Made in Japan Omron Micro Switches
- Cherry MX Key Switch Attack Button
- Six Fully Programmable Hotkeys
- Four Custom Profiles sets
- Four distinct LED lighting cues, for indication of the current profile
- Customizable 16.8 million color LED taillight for each profile
- On The Fly DPI Switching
- Size: 123 mm / 4.84” (Length) x 73 mm / 2.87” (height)
- Weight: 105g / .23 lbs
I can't wait to try this one out. Look for the video review in a week or so. For now, let me know what you think about the idea of putting Cherry MX blue switches in a mouse.
