    Gigabyte today slipped in its latest gaming-grade wireless mouse, the ECO500. The mouse connects to its host over standard 2.4 GHz band, and relies on a micro-dongle (included). Apart from its design its 1,600 dpi optical sensor makes it gaming grade. The mouse is powered by two AA batteries, with typical usage, a pair lasts up to a year. The mouse measures 105 (L) x 59.7 (W) x 40.1 (H) mm, its weight varies depending on the batteries used. The mouse features a total of five buttons, including two buttons on the left side (making it a right-handed mouse, despite its otherwise ambidextrous design). A red glowing shape (probably relaying the sensor's LED,) and a DPI adjustment switch deck up its top.

    You want a product that is made almost exclusively out of plastic to not be plasticky?

    I like the looks of it. The shape of the red light is nice and forward/back buttons is a plus. I have the gig m6800 mouse and its a great shape for my hand and responds great. I hope this is to par with that. Wireless mouse can be a little iffy when it comes to signal though. 1600dpi is a lil low for me. I do everything on my pc at 5600 (cm storm) and I love it.

    I wouldn't mind trying out an aluminum mouse. Aluminum keyboard might be fun too.
