Leetgion Hellion is the First Mouse With Cherry MX Blue Switches

With Cherry MX Blue switches rated at 50 million clicks and a 5000 DPI laser sensor, the Leetgion Hellion looks like one hell of a mouse.

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.

 At first glance I thought it read 9500 Laser Sensor as in that was its DPI setting. My jaw dropped and I reacted with "Whaaooooo." Then my dreams were smashed to pieces. Looks pretty sweet though.

 Heavy duty. Some mice can't take the punishment, these guys might be on to something.

 shoulda been named 1337gion. Ok, I know that was a lame joke.

As for someone that plays mostly RPG's this still seems quite useful in that genre; and I edit in Lightroom and Photoshop a lot, so pointing devices like this is nice when you can change the DPI from that low to that high.

Im confused as to how they are going to implement blue switches in a mouse. Are they going to be some kind of modified switches? or is this going to be a mouse where the buttons have 4mm of travel?
