Avid gamers and employees alike can make the most of the massive array of customizable buttons on Superb’ Mannequin I mouse. Utilizing Superb’ software program, you possibly can program the mouse’s 9 buttons to carry out a wide range of duties, together with macros and keyboard inputs.

In response to a weblog put up from Superb this week, the 2 buttons use a peg-and-hole system for alignment, and you’ll pry them off the mouse along with your fingernail or a “plastic instrument.” As soon as the buttons are eliminated, you possibly can swap them out for ones with completely different shapes. Along with the button covers on the mouse, the Mannequin I comes with two in another way formed button covers for every of the 2 replaceable buttons. You can even do away with both of the facet buttons by overlaying them up with the included flat port covers. As somebody who struggles to keep away from urgent facet buttons by accident, I can see this coming in helpful.

Superb sells a alternative set of button covers for $8.

The Superb Mannequin I continues the corporate’s historical past of utilizing honeycomb-shaped cutouts to supply a mouse that weighs simply 0.15 lb ± 0.01 ounce (69 g ± 2.5 g).

Like different gaming-peripheral firms, Superb says {that a} light-weight mouse may help gamers’ PC gaming efficiency, as a lighter mouse may be simpler to maneuver. A mouse crammed with holes and made with light-weight plastic might really feel low-cost, however Superb is utilizing a matte end (quite than a shiny one) to attempt to make the mouse really feel extra premium.

The Mannequin I is about 31.8–40 p.c lighter than the wi-fi Logitech Signature M650 (0.22 or 0.25 lb, relying on the dimensions). Nonetheless, there are lighter mice, comparable to Superb’ 0.13 lb (58 g) Mannequin O or Cooler Grasp’s 0.11 lb (50 g) MM720.

Contained in the Mannequin I is a proprietary optical sensor with a DPI vary of 100–19,000. Superb’ BAMF sensor additionally helps a max monitoring velocity of 400 IPS and a max acceleration of fifty g (see our PC mouse phrases information for a proof of those phrases).

The 6.5-foot braided cable is replaceable, and opening the mouse to vary it out will not void the guarantee.
