Gigabyte Aivia Krypton Gaming Mouse ReviewThu, Aug 30, 2012 - 12:00 AM
The Krypton Mouse
The mouse that we use for our computers is probably the most important tool we use to interface with our computers. And when it comes to doing various tasks on our computers, we rely heavily on our mouse to be smooth, and provide us with precise movements. Then we need to consider that as our resolution of our desktops start to increase, our mice need to be able to transition from one side of the screen to the other in one easy fluidic movement, that does not require us to keep resetting the mouse; meaning that as we hit the edge of our mousing surface we have to pick up the mouse and move it back to the opposite side of the mouse pad so we can continue transitioning across our large desktop.
This is where adjustable, high DPI mice come into play; these types of mice gives us the ability of smooth, fluid like transitioning across our desktops while allowing us pin point accuracy for our various programs we use with our computers.
Gigabyte has been expanding their computer manufacturing portfolio into computer peripherals for a couple of years now, and one of these computer peripherals that Gigabyte happens to provide us with a fully adjustable, high DPI mouse. We just so happen to be looking at Gigabyte’s newest addition, the Krypton.

A quick look at the specifications of the Gigabyte Krypton mouse gives us insight that it utilizes a dual chassis design, and that this mouse has the capability of using a high DPI of 8200. The Krypton mouse also contains 32k of on board memory so that this mouse will retain the multiple profiles we will be programming with this mouse, so if we move to another computer, this mouse will retain those settings without the need to install the software on those other computers. Finally, the Krypton mouse allows us to customize the weight of it to our personal needs or requirements. Something that should be noted is that Gigabyte also gives the Krypton mouse a two year parts and labor warranty.
