A super lightweight mouse that is a great option for any gaming fans.

Finding a gaming mouse can be a tricky business — especially when you are running a macOS machine. The Dark Matter Hyper-K Ultralight Optical Gaming Mouse from Monoprice is designed to provide industry-leading precision, durability, and construction within a full-size mouse. So, I thought I would give it a try. It features a honeycomb structure to ensure it’s as lightweight as it can be. It has an attached premium paracord-wrapped cable jacket, high-grade PTFE feet, customizable DPI, industry-leading Omron switches, and a 16,000 DPI PixArt Optical sensor, which is the most respected producer of optical sensors. The Omron switches are rated for more than 20 million clicks.
