CHERRY, the specialist for computer input devices, presents the MW 8 ADVANCED. This brand new wireless mouse does not only offer innovative features, it is also built to meet the highest standards. Moreover, the CHERRY MW 8 ADVANCED can be connected via Bluetooth or 2.4 GHz wireless, which, together with the high-quality optical sensor, makes it ideal for flexible, all-round use.

The CHERRY MW 8 ADVANCED joins CHERRY's portfolio as the new flagship, combining timeless design with state-of-the-art technology. An elegant metal surface made of brushed aluminum conveys the highest quality workmanship, and the rubber pads with trendy Voronoi cell structure on both sides of the mouse ensure a good grip. The MW 8 ADVANCED is rounded off by its comfortable shape, which fits the hand perfectly.



High-precision PixArt sensor
From a technical point of view, MW 8 ADVANCED joins the CHERRY mouse range as a top model, as the high-precision PixArt "track-on-glass" sensor with optical scanning works on all surfaces, including glass. This allows the mouse to be used without a mouse pad. The sensor resolution can be adjusted in four steps between 600, 1000, 1600, and 3200 DPI, making the MW 8 ADVANCED suitable for use with 4K monitors.

Wireless connectivity through 2.4 GHz wireless or Bluetooth
Other highlights of the MW 8 ADVANCED are its connectivity options. Users can simply connect the mouse to a compatible system using the built-in Bluetooth 4.0 functionality, or alternatively, use the supplied USB receiver to establish a 2.4 GHz wireless connection secured with AES encryption. Switching between the two modes is done by sliding the switch at the bottom of the mouse into the desired position. Using this feature, users can connect the MW 8 ADVANCED with a notebook and desktop PC at the same time, quickly switching between the two at the slide of a button.

Integrated battery for long service life
The integrated Lithium battery with a generous capacity of 550 mAh ensures a long service life. Depending on the usage profile, one charge will last up to 70 days. A two-color status LED provides information about the battery charge as well as the selected resolution and the connection to the PC. The wireless mouse is charged via the included USB cable, and remains usable during charging to enable high productivity without interruptions.

Comprehensive feature set
To top off the MW 8 ADVANCED, CHERRY added additional, sophisticated features. These include an extra durable mouse wheel with optical scanning, a magnetic lock for the USB receiver, and a transport bag. These features make the mouse equally well-suited to mobile as to stationary applications.

The CHERRY MW 8 ADVANCED is available from the end of September at a suggested retail price of €50 / $60 / £44.

Looks pretty nice for the money. Seems like a solid wireless mouse. Usually not much middle ground between dirt cheap and hardcore gamer mice. I don't need a hardcore gaming mouse. I could use something significantly better than my cheap Logitech.

Yeah, and then you have to change the battery. Which is a PITA if you don't happen to have any spares.

With this mouse, you plug it in to charge for a night once a week and never have to worry about the battery going flat.

To me, this kills the very purpose of wireless peripherals. Like the new g pro wireless has a battery that lasts like 60 hours with LEDs off, so basically every 2 day and a half you have to play or use it with the cable, for like 2/3 hours.

Or - or - you can just make a simple habit of plugging in the charging cable after you turn off your PC, like what I do with my wireless headphones. But it sounds like that would be too much effort for someone who apparently expects "wireless" to mean "works forever with magical pixie dust".

First of all i have no PITA changing batteries, because i have dozen of Eneloop AAA batteries used in wireless headphones, remote controls, wall clock, compact wireless mouse and so on. And if one of them fails i just go to shop to buy either rechargeable or alkaline battery, what you supposed to do with failed embedded battery?

Also i didn't trust manufacturers ratings about how long something working from 1 charge, it can be easily about 10x times lie, 2x usually.

Or - or - you can just make a simple habit of plugging in the charging cable after you turn off your PC, like what I do with my wireless headphones. But it sounds like that would be too much effort for someone who apparently expects "wireless" to mean "works forever with magical pixie dust".
Why i need to use something that uses charge like it have something "super computing" inside while competitors have products lasting longer.

as an owner of a modern logitech wireless mouse, they measure it in hours of usage - not hours of idle time
so if you swing that mouse around for 10 hours a day, you're getting 6 days of use out of that 60 hours

they power down in idle after ~5 minutes, so any time you walk away, or sit back and watch a video that time slowly gets stretched out - my G403 and G703 were lasting a little over a week on each charge

Not bad. Still quite expensive just from the spec perspective, but if it has an adjustable polling rate, and the build quality is above average, then it might be OK (only if you are a Cherry fan).
BTW, the exact model of optical sensor is Pixart PAW3805EK. There's not enough info on it, except that it's mostly found in mediocre chinese wireless mice... The only difference with ADNS3050 is it's low power consumption, but otherwise it's quite adequate even for 4K screens, and even for some gaming (assuming it's polling at 250Hz or above, instead of typical 125).

aint these the ones that explode or catch on fire ? then if you did get a bad one and fails to charge is it user replaceable with a common battery like you can grab at wallll mart ?

I just think a common user replaceable High-Capacity Ni-MH may of been a better choice and a bit better sellin point ?

I mean it's not like it's a deal breaker, but to me it still makes the whole "wireless" feature a bit less exciting to adopt. They started developing that tech similar to NFC of smartphones, "powerplay" iirc, why not optimize that, imagine if you could have every mouse working with no cable, no battery, just by using a thin sheet under your favorite mouse pad, ofc the mouse will only work on the pad. Oh and there's no need to act so salty anyway.

as an owner of a modern logitech wireless mouse, they measure it in hours of usage - not hours of idle time
so if you swing that mouse around for 10 hours a day, you're getting 6 days of use out of that 60 hours

they power down in idle after ~5 minutes, so any time you walk away, or sit back and watch a video that time slowly gets stretched out - my G403 and G703 were lasting a little over a week on each charge
You're right, but i honestly don't think i would buy that, unless it was like months of use.

Its stuff like this that makes me stick to wired gear :) Can't be bothered with a whole process to follow me turning something off, just so I can use stuff again the next day. Just my phone is already more than enough of that.

LOL, so you can't be bothered to do the simple step of plugging in a single cable, that takes all of 10 seconds?

The advantage is that if I want to get up and go to the kitchen to grab something to drink, I don't have to stop playback and take off my headphones. I can continue listening to whatever I was listening to. Considering I do this more than once a day, I save more time and effort than I expend by having to plug in the charging cable every night.

Ok, you do realize this is a topic about mice, right?

Headphones are another subject entirely - not subject to latency and if a battery dies you dont lose control of what you were doing...
