What kind of mouse is the best?
If a mouse wants to be called a good one, its first appearance is important! Of course, this is not judging people by their appearance. The reason is very simple. You need to use the mouse instead of your mouth or your superpowers. You need to use your hand, grasp it, and operate it all the time. No matter how excellent the mouse is, whether it has a warranty for N years or has won a certain artistic achievement award, after all, it is just your hands operating. So whether a mouse fits your hand shape is the first key to choosing a good mouse. The shape can be judged from two aspects: size and shape. A mouse that is too big or too small is actually not a good one. There are many mice on the market, with various sizes and different types. When buying, you can choose from multiple brands and first press it with your own hand to see if it is suitable. You, also known as the so-called see if it feels well. Relatively speaking, the mice of European and American manufacturers are a bit too large, and for people with small hands, long-term operation tends to be sore. In terms of appearance, personal physique is also mentioned. The ergonomic mouse is carefully designed to meet people’s focus and activity rules when using the mouse. It will protect the wrist and fingers when used, and will not cause unnecessary hand diseases when used for a long time. .
Secondly, let’s talk about the material. The material is divided into two parts, the material used for the mouse body, and the wire. You can notice that most of the general brand name mice use more than one mode for the main body. For example, if the surface is smooth, the lower part will be matte. This design is actually ergonomic. When one hand is held on the mouse, the force point is definitely different. Some are support, some are stable, and some are click. Different surfaces can make different uses better. Except for wireless mice, they all have a connection line, just like a tail. If the wire is stiff, then the mouse can be felt when it is moving. It is like a small plastic bag entangled under your feet when a person is walking. Although it may not affect the overall situation, it makes people very uncomfortable. Comfortable. So pay attention to whether the wire of the mouse is soft or slender so that it will not easily affect the movement of the mouse.
If the above conditions are met, then this mouse will have the basis to become a good mouse. In the daily office and general use of browsing the web, such a mouse is enough. But in the game? What about drawing? In the high-end use of these mice, a good optical core engine is needed to create the mouse source power. Regardless of Logitech Microsoft or Shuangfeiyan, the high-end models of these well-known brands have their own proprietary optical engine, which is also unique from other models of mice. For example, Logitech’s Laser engine and the X7 super-speed engine used in the Shuangfeiyan X7 series are all proud of each manufacturer.
The performance of an optical engine can be measured in these aspects: speed (SPI), sampling rate, DPI (resolution). The speed (SPI) performance is to make the cursor move smooth and delicate without jaggedness, to meet the accuracy requirements, and it is better to move to the specified position quickly without jitter deviation at all. The SPI indicator is calculated in milliseconds. The smaller the value, the faster and smoother the speed.
The sampling rate is measured by the number of frames per second. At present, the sampling rate of an ordinary optical mouse is generally between 1500 and 2000. The sampling rate is how many pictures can be processed per second to determine the displacement of the mouse. If the sampling rate is low, the mouse will run around by itself when there is rapid displacement. When playing CS and the like, such things often happen on low-end optical mice. Therefore, the sampling rate of an excellent mouse is generally not lower than 6000, and high-end optical mice from well-known brands such as Logitech, Microsoft and Shuangfeiyan have a sampling rate higher than 6000. From the point of view of the principle of sampling rate, the higher the better. DPI is determined according to actual application conditions. Simply put, under a fixed screen resolution, the higher the DPI, the smoother and faster the mouse movement. But it’s not that DPI is just as high as it is, but it needs to have a resolution that suits you. If it is a drawing, a high resolution screen, then a high DPI is good. If the DPI is not too high for a fiercely confrontational low-resolution game like CS, around 400-600 is the best. I have met a friend whose work is drawing, and his hobby is playing CS. There are two mice on the desktop, and they are used in different places with different DPI.
Regarding the issue of the optical engine, it may not be obvious just by looking at the parameters or simply using it. Here, it is recommended to use Shuang Feiyan’s “Mouse Blue Sky” mouse test program. As the world’s first professional mouse testing tool, although there are deficiencies in the evaluation of scores, you can look at the software’s graph. Under the same test conditions, the smoother the curve, the smaller the jaggedness, which means that the movement sampling of this mouse is better.
In addition to moving, what other actions does the mouse do the most? Needless to say, just click. The buttons of the mouse are also the key to measuring whether the mouse is good. There are also two parts to be judged: keys and key arrangement. The number of clicks is too much, so the button will naturally have a longevity to serve you for many years. At the same time, it must have a good feel. The feel is clear and crisp, and the quick response is a judgment of whether the button is good or bad. Omron is the first component of the button! The arrangement of the keys should not affect the operation of the main keys. At the same time, it is better to have more functions, and self-programming is the best. There are only a few major manufacturers that will do a good job of these drivers.
Choose a mouse that suits you, and there are many details that need to be paid attention to, especially for drawing, as well as those used in games. For example, the weight of the mouse, the texture material on the surface of the mouse, and the feet on the bottom of the mouse should all have a better design, so I won’t say more here. Everyone should know that the mouse is for your personal use, and the best one is for you.
