Product information: CASTOR Optical Gaming MouseCastor is the second brightest star in the constellation Gemini and one of the brightest stars in the night sky. In Greek and Roman mythology Castor and Pollux were twin brothers, together known as the Dioscuri. The Dioscuri were regarded as helpers of humankind. Their role as horsemen and boxers also led to them being regarded as the patrons of athletes and athletic contests. They characteristically intervened at the moment of crisis, aiding those who honored or trusted them.
The CASTOR is a premium 6 button multi-color optical right-handed ergonomic gaming mouse. The unique shape has been developed to be used by right-handed gamers, and to equally support palm, claw and fingertip-grip. The mouse has a dedicated pinky- and ring-finger support-groove which makes it most comfortable to hold and lift.
The PMW-3310 gaming grade optical sensor has no positive or negative hardware acceleration, amazing accuracy, smooth tracking, and a maximum speed of more than 5.45m/sec (215 IPS) all the way up to 10000DPI. It is the choice of the world’s top pro-gamers and widely considered as the best gaming sensor currently available.
The new lift-off distance (LOD) Calibration feature combines the Surface Quality Analyzer Tool (S.Q.A.T ™) with adjustment of the lift-off height to find the lowest possible LOD with optimized tracking. The lightning fast 32bit ARM™ processor enables the mouse to have numerous gaming features without compromising on the tracking of the sensor. The downloadable software provides access to fully customize all buttons, sensor settings, LED colors, macros and profiles.
