Mad Catz is placing its stamp on the featherweight gaming mouse class with the Mojo M1 (stylized as “M.O.J.O. M1”), one other nimble rodent with bits of the shell carved out to scale back the general heft. On this case, Mad Catz managed to get the burden all the way down to 70 grams.
That’s not the lightest gaming mouse round—Cooler Grasp’s MM710, which is still on sale for $30, weighs simply 53 grams—however it’s actually far faraway from being heavy.
I additionally respect that Mad Catz deviated from utilizing honeycomb cutouts and opted for varied triangle holes as an alternative, giving the Mojo M1 a extra menacing demeanor than different mice on this class. I am typically not a fan of how the current crop of light-weight mice look (just like the Glorious Model O and Roccat Burst Professional), and whereas the Mojo M1 isn’t a totally totally different design, it does stand out.
You will should resolve for your self whether or not that could be a good factor or unhealthy factor—I form of prefer it, however I am positive there might be a contingent of avid gamers who discover it garish.
To be clear, I’ve solely seen footage of the Mojo M1, and haven’t really performed with it. I’m intrigued, although. Many of the cutouts reside on the perimeters and thumb relaxation, and according to Mad Catz, the “uneven hollow-pyramid design” is equally fitted to each claw and palm grip types.
Powering the mouse is a Pixart PMW3360 optical sensor with a 12,000 DPI and 250 IPS monitoring pace. There are six buttons in all, with the primary clickers sitting atop Dakota mechanical switches which can be good for 60 million clicks. Mad Catz additionally says the switches leverage sign detection know-how to get rid of bouncing and de-bouncing to extra precisely register button presses.
Adjustable RGB lighting is a part of the bundle as effectively, and there’s no customized driver or software program utility to put in—you simply should be working a Home windows OS from Vista by means of 10.
Mad Catz says the Mojo M1 might be obtainable by the tip of the month, however pricing has not but been introduced.
