Bright lighting for some blazing gaming.
Byline : by Andrew Yew
A4Tech is seemingly on a roll with its Bloody arm of gaming peripherals, releasing so many gamer-type mice that it’s now really hard to keep up with the line-up. They all share a common feature – ‘Metal X’Glide’, an innovation that basically replaces the common teflon mouse feet for metal ones, making the mouse last a lot longer. In review is the A7A, a gaming mouse that looks like it has a disco ball built-in.
Friday Night Lights
The A7A is the title of ‘Blazing Gaming Mouse’ and it’s not due to the performance (well, partially…). See, underneath the crackle texture of the mouse is a series of coloured lights that give you a light show every instance your computer is on. By default, the lighting ‘breathes’ or pulses slowly, giving the impression of power emanating from its depths.
Same Innards, Different Shell
Aside from the multi-coloured lighting scheme, this (near-)ambidextrous gaming mouse has just about the same features and functionality as its other siblings. Basically, you get an AVAGO Optical sensor that has a max sensitivity of 3200CPI, eight buttons to work with, and the long-lasting metal mouse feet. Oddly enough, there are two side buttons on the left side, and none on the right.
Resolution: 100 – 4000 CPI
Max acceleration: 20 – 23g
Tracking speed: 60 – 160in/s
Dimensions: 127 x 74 x 42mm
Total Score: 8/10
Verdict: You may never need to turn on the lights in your room.
