HP Intros New Gaming Mice

HP Announced two gaming mice based on the Voodoo DNA design methodology. The first one being HDX Laser Mouse and the other, Laser Gaming Mouse VoodooDNA. The HDX model has five programmable buttons, a somewhat ambidextrous design and 2400 dpi scan resolution (sensitivity). It stores up to five user profiles for button and sensitivity settings.

The VoodooDNA mouse comes with the kind of design you would expect from VoodooPC, a company acquired by HP about two years ago, that specializes in building gaming PCs. It comes with HP VoodooDNA software that gives gamers control over the mouse along with options to tweak and tune it, which also allows storage of up to 25 button profiles that gamers can switch to, specific to their games. It has a resolution of 3200 dpi. The HDX Laser Mouse will be priced at US $39.99, while the VoodooDNA mouse will carry a price tag of $59.99. Images (in order) of VoodooDNA Laser Mouse and HDX Laser are provided.

Very nice mice. Im glad to see HP offer something like this. 39.99 for the HDX is really sweet too. I love the little red swipe type stripe below the scroll wheel too.

When are companies going to realize that laser is full of fail?

Dunno. Good question. I'm still favoring high end optical.

I went from a laser to a optical and honestly there is no difference. The optical one is better because it has more buttons and its more ergonomic tho.

Woah...the VoodooDNA mouse is extremely nice. Looks like Razer has some tough competition ahead of 'em.

I've never noticed any major difference between laser and optical. But then again, I use my pc from my bed and my tracking surface is a wrinkled sheet on my mattress, so that screws everything up to begin with. :ohwell:

I'm still sittin' pretty with my $0.99 Rosewill mouse with 1600 dpi and 5 buttons, and I don't plan on upgrading 'til I can find rechargeable wireless mouse with all the bells and whistles of a nice wired one for ~$50 or less . . . and when I don't have anything better to spend my money on :laugh:
