Elecom Unveils New Gaming Mice with Cross Axis DPI Settings

Japanese company Elecom unveiled a new line of gaming mice featuring cross-axis sensitivity settings, giving you the ability to tune the sensitivity of the mouse by tuning the X and Y axes independently. The sensitivity setting is then displayed back to the user by LEDs on the mouse, next to button 1. The M-H1ULBK and M-H2DLBK launched today have the same exact design, except that the M-H2DLBK is capable of both wireless and wired opteration. The M-H1ULBK is wired.

The M-H1ULBK features a 5310 dpi optical sensor (can be tuned between 90 dpi and 5310 dpi), with 1000 Hz polling rate. It has a 1.8 m braided USB cable. The M-H2DLBK, on the other hand, packs a 5600 dpi sensor, which can be tuned between 100 and 5600 dpi. It offers a polling rate of 500 Hz when functioning wireless, and 1000 Hz when wired. Both measure W77.6 x D124.5 x H41.8 mm, the M-H1ULBK weighs 155 g (including cable), while the M-H2DLBK weighs 137 g when wireless, and 187 g when wired. Both mice feature 7 buttons, with on the fly dpi settings. Slated for May launch, the M-H2DLBK will be priced at 15,435 JPY (US $200), and the M-H1ULBK at 9,870 JPY ($128).

First time I see a mouse and think: "man that looks complex".
Am I growing old?

Had a customer bring in the uber-over-expensive Star Wars gaming mouse from Razer. Talking like $140 mouse. Was both wired/wireless and had a zillion buttons on the thumb side of the mouse. Nice mouse, overpriced beyond belief.

EDIT: It had a recharging base and rechargeable battery pack.

My Sidewinder X8 has a magnetic cable so I just keep the cable nearby and when the low battery light turns on. and BAM! hover mouse over the cable and it clicks into place and starts recharging :D

Nice mouse, I've learned the paying 100+$ for a mouse CAN be worth it, it surprised be xD But you use it everytime you go on the computer, and a comfortable experience can really change everything. I'm lefty and have a handicapped right hand though, so extra buttons help on my mouse so that I can do a lot with my mouse and only use one finger on the keyboard (in-game) or I basically type one handed with my left hand

There are already a fair amount of mice with independent x/y scaling. Is the difference here just that it actually has separate buttons on the mouse to adjust each on the fly?
