Rapoo VPRO V900 Gaming Mouse Starts Selling

Rapoo, one of the world's leading manufacturers of peripherals in the wireless segment and the first manufacturer of products featuring 5 GHz wireless technology, holds an impressive 42% market share in China. Today, it proudly launches its new V900 Laser Gaming Mouse. VPRO Gaming Labs, Rapoo's dedicated department with a 120-strong R&D Team located at one of Asia's most cutting-edge production facilities, aims to show with its first mouse that a high-end gaming mouse doesn't need to be expensive despite using the highest quality materials and components - and the new V900 Laser Gaming Mouse is clear proof of this.

The new V900 Laser Gaming Mouse packs an enormous amount of power under its hood with its adjustable 8200 DPI VPRO Gaming Laser Sensor combined with V-Power3 Gaming Chip with 32-bit ARM core processor. Together with the 10.8 megapixel sensor and 1000 Hz USB polling rate the VPRO laser sensor offers maximum precision, transmitting even the fastest of mouse movements with up to 30 G of acceleration and speeds of up to 150 ips (3.8 m/s) without any loss or delay whatsoever. And thanks to the Pick-Up Flight Control Unit integrated into the laser sensor, lift-off distance is now also controllable and individually configurable from 1 to 5 mm.
The V900 has seven buttons, of which five are fully customizable, as well as an ergonomic design optimized for right-handers. The DPI Fast-Switch button lets gamers switch rapidly between DPI presets configured in the driver. The seventh button is located on the base and lets the user toggle between sub-profiles. In addition, the V900 is equipped with a smart LED multi-color light system with 16 million colors plus a range of different light effects to choose from. For instance, in APM Impulse Mode, the light effect adjusts automatically to the gamer's actions, delivering a really stylish dynamic effect on any desktop. And when it comes to the buttons themselves, the mouse's Omron© switches deliver a consistent and very positive click action.

VPRO Gaming Labs took the original V900 Laser Gaming Mouse and further improved it specifically for the European and American market. The features that were upgraded include the Soft Grip material covering the mouse, which offers secure grip even right in the heat of battle. With their enhanced grip, the rubberized side grips offer total game control - and in combination with its incredible ergonomic comfort, this tool always sits perfectly in the hand. Indeed, the V900 has been immensely popular right from its launch in China. This market currently has 338 million gamers and the world's highest number of PC gamers.

The Macro Manager integrated into the driver comes to the rescue when creating macros, which can be done really easily using the driver. Preconfigured macro presets for games and Office applications make it even easier to customize the mouse. The additional loop function lets users loop macros immediately and for an infinite number of times.

All the settings can be stored in any one of five game profiles, which each feature three sub-profiles, and linked to games and applications. The last profile used, including the three sub-profiles, is stored in the mouse's onboard memory. When a game is started, these illumination settings, button configs, and DPI settings, etc. are all loaded automatically. What's more, the small status LED located centrally on the top of the mouse indicates the current game profile.

The V900 Laser Gaming Mouse is available now for an MSRP of €59.00.

One issue is you cant shift DPI down straight away with a push of a button. you have to cycle through all the other DPi profiles before you get back to the default

It has potential based on the shape but with buttons on only one side - every ambidextrous mouse I've tried with buttons on the right positions them poorly and the right side buttons just get in the way.

But two things: 1) Laser, not optical. BECAUSE USELESSLY HIGH DPI 2) I have a hard time buying something from a company whose name ends in 'poo'.
