Cyber Snipa are ready to join the 5000dpi club with their new Silencer mouse.
The Cyber Snipa Stinger is one of my favourite gaming mice, as it combines a great set of features with a cheap price. It looks like the Silencer is set to repeat that winning formula by combining a 5000dpi laser sensor with a few other features and still undercut the competition by some margin.
The laser sensor is adjustable from just 100 up to 5000dpi with a choice of 4 dpi levels for in-game adjustment. The polling rate of 1000Hz rate is up there with the best and the sensor is capable of reading 7,400 frames/second and can track at speeds of up to 150 inches/second.
The Cyber Snipa Silencer has a little more up its sleeve than just a new laser. There are nine buttons, each of which can be re-programmed in one of seven gaming profiles, allowing the Silencer to have up to 63 functions or macros assigned to it. Mind you, the chances of me remembering how I allocated up 63 actions across nine buttons are slim, but if I ever did manage to get my memory working properly then it’s nice to know that the Silencer can hold more profiles than most of the competition (who seem to stop at five profiles).
Another nice touch is a choice of two side grips. Both grips are made of rubber with one featuring a smooth surface while the other is grooved for added finger support. While it’s an idea that’s been executed more successfully by Logitech on the G9 and G9x, this is a nice touch that could make the Silencer a comfortable proposition for more gamers.
The final feature is a weight changing system. A cartridge holds up to six 4.9gram weights, allowing you to add up to 29.4 grammes to the Silencer.
The Cyber Snipa Silencer is not available just yet but can be pre-ordered from Amazon for just $50.99, significantly undercutting the retail price of $64.99.
