QPAD Announces Power Packed 8K Optical Gaming Mouse

Completing the 8K's family of mice, the QPAD 8K Optical addresses the enormous demand for an optical mouse, currently the most popular among gamers today. Like the QPAD 8K Laser, the optical version is an advanced, power-packed product with RGB LED offering 16.8 million color variations, an ergonomic five-finger grip as well as technology features to ensure accuracy, all contained in a sleekly designed box and carry bag. Much more than a standard optical mouse, the QPAD designers have boosted a lot of the specs so that it's closer to a laser mouse, but has all the advantages gamers like in the optical technology.
A big engine under the hood
Under the hood, the mouse offers many of the features available in its laser brother, such as a gaming-grade optical sensor with up to 5000 true CPI, an advanced 32-bit ARM processor to optimize the tracking performance, pre-mounted QPAD Glidz mouse feet, seven programmable buttons for profiles, sensitivity, shortcuts, keys and macro recordings.

The wizardry of the QPAD 8K Optical is immediately visible from the speed at which you can move up to 3.3 meters per second without losing tracking abilities. The sensor pictures the surface with a shutter speed of 6,500 frames per second covering an area of 900 pixels per frame. In turn, this generates an image processing power of 5.8 MB of data per second.

Zero mouse acceleration
The QPAD 8K Optical offers zero-mouse acceleration, which provides a one-to-one relationship between the movement by the mouse and the movement on the screen, eliminating failure rate. With its high quality sensor, QPAD 8k Optical can be moved at high speeds while retaining its tracking accuracy.

The ability to make quick, precise movements - and maintain your sense of control - also depends on the grip. The comfortable, five-finger grip is perfectly balanced, with button placement and a shape ideally suited to right-handed gamers. There's a tactile sense of quality and power when holding this mouse in your hand, which doesn't disappoint in the throes of a game.

For gamers who like to move around and play on different computers and setups, this mouse supports Plug & Play for easy installation. No drivers are needed and it carries a 128 kB on-board memory that will store your personal profile settings. No need to fiddle around once you're plugged into another computer.

Up to 20 million clicks
Built to last, the left and right buttons from Omron can handle up to 20 million clicks, which are characterized by a distinctive feedback. Despite its high-end specs, it's a mouse with a personality. It offers comfort, power and ease of use, all in a optical concept, enabling you to outperform your competitors in the heat of the game and drive your performance to higher levels.

Customized lighting
The kicker for many will be the new RGB LED feature allows gamers to individualize their experience by choosing any color in the spectrum and displaying them in a variety of modes. For example, you can choose breathing, pulse, rainbow flow or random in any of 16.8 million colors!

Advanced software features
The new feature packed software from QPAD is stuffed with alot of tools to adjust the user experience, such as macro editor, different color modes, advanced sensor tweaking options and much more. After downloading the software no registration or internet connection is needed to get you fully setup!

With less buttons...I prefer my G500.

I also don't get the obsession with ridiculous high DPI. I never run mine higher than 1000...

1000 dpi mice would run like poop on high-res displays (4K/5K), especially when you're working on apps such as Photoshop. I know graphics co's with 4K displays that have at least a 3,800 dpi Razer Abyssus standard issue on all their machines.

1000 is certainly enough for me to flick from one side to the other at 1080 tho. I can see needing higher at higher resolutions. I "can" do 5700 on my mouse but utterly pointless.

Well, there's the resolution debate, and then there's the real debate.
You guys are obviously forgetting to adjust mouse speed in the Windows options as well. That does not affect DPI, only the rate at which the pointer moves.
For the sake of this argument, let's assume one is using a 6000DPI mouse, and that the movement speed of the cursor at 1000DPI and Windows' setting maxed is identical to the speed of the cursor at 6000DPI with Windows' setting set to the minimum. Since they both move at the same speed/rate, are they performing the same?
No. With the mouse set to 6000DPI, the mouse's sensor is checking for movement six times more often. Although the cursor moves at the same rate because of the Windows setting, the actual accuracy of the input is much higher at 6000DPI versus 1000DPI. Simply put, even if the cursor moves at the same speed, shooters and other games will see much finer, smoother input from the mouse the higher the DPI is.

I hope this clears some of the confusion.

Fine and dandy except my mouse software overrides any Windows setting.

This is not nearly as logitech G500. I have a G502 and grip is much better, and the nearest to been FUNC MS-3 (I use it) which has instantaim more. This is a good mouse with good grip.:) I suggest it to everyone will not be disappointed as the Logitech G502 is for Martians with three fingers designed mouse which is lying in a corner waste of money. I have a a whole bunch of mouses and know what is good. Such a form (QPAD 8K )is one of the best.
