Default NZXT Unleashes Avatar High Performance Gaming Mouse

NZXT, the company best know for its lineup of flashy enclosures, looks to expand its horizon by getting into the gaming peripheral market with its new Avatar mouse. The uniquely shaped rodent comes ready for both left and right handed gamers and sports a rubber grip to prevent slippage. NZXT says the "small, light form factor allows for faster and quicker movements," and the company bills the new mouse as being ergonomic.

The Avatar also comes equipped with a 7-button configuration and boasts a high 2600 DPI. Other features include:
  • 40 inches/second max speed
  • 15g max acceleration
  • 6469 max fps
  • 650-2600 DPI
  • 5.8MP per second
  • Up to 1000 USB reports per second
One of the more interesting marketing bullets, NZXT claims the 7 buttons will last for 5 million clicks, which sounds like a really, really long time. Available now, the new Avatar has been given an MSRP of $60, which works out to about $.000012 per click.

If, on average, you click once a second and play four hours a day 20 days per month then the mouse will not quite last a year and a half.

Depends on what you play, I guess.
