I hardly ever find enough free time to sufficiently enjoy playing any PC game but every once in a while a title gets released which I’ve been waiting for many years and so i take that opportunity to test as many gaming peripherals as i can. For example once Bioware released the highly anticipated addition to the Mass Effect universe (Mass Effect Andromeda) i dropped almost every review i was working on in order to have enough time for it and although after finishing it i still prefer the original Trilogy (although i do look forward for the Quarian Ark DLC - unless they decide to cover that in a sequel) the roughly 70 hours i spend completing every single quest made it possible for me to test several gaming peripherals including keyboards, mice, headsets and even chairs. Among those gaming peripherals was the M50 Pro Gaming Mouse by Das Keyboard (Division Zero series) which we'll be covering in today’s review.
Best in speed, precision, durability and design is our motto. With Das Keyboard Gaming, we create top performing premium products designed entirely for gamers to outlast the competition. Our products are designed for professionals tapping away for more than 10 hours each day, as well as gamers who just really want to have an amazing and durable product with an experience that will push the limits. Over the course of the countless phases that come with building a product, Das Keyboard Gaming became so much more than that. It became a great beast that somehow took on a life of its own. All of the hardware is equipped with metal detailing to increase the durability and provide everyone who touched it with an unmatched experience. Each piece of equipment has the Das Keyboard detailing and design that makes each piece work together and flow magnificently together. And although look is important, every detail was measured on its ability to take the gaming experience to the next level.
Just like the X40 Pro Gaming Keyboard also by Das Keyboard (Division Zero) the housing of the M50 Pro is also made out of both aluminum and hard plastic making it one of the sturdiest gaming mice to ever pass from out test bench (not to mention one of the very few ambidextrous models). Inside that enclosure Das Keyboard has placed the Pixart / Avago ADNS-9800 laser gaming sensor which they tweaked to offer a resolution of up to 6400DPI (dots per inch - from the typical 8200DPI we've seen with many other gaming mice) with a speed of up to 150IPS (inches per second) and 30g acceleration. The M50 Pro also features a total of 9 programmable buttons (including an aluminum 4D scroll wheel) and although for the two primary buttons Das Keyboard has used OMRON switches (up to 20 million clicks - up to 300 clicks per minute) the 4 side ones have switches made by Kailh (unfortunately we don't know their endurance number). Other features include red LEDs, DPI LED indicator, 128kb of onboard memory (for storing of up to 6 profiles) and a 2.1 meter long braided cable with a gold plated USB plug.
