Why do I need a gaming mouse?

When you’re taking your first steps as a gamer, it makes sense to use the equipment you already own. But as you progress and become more committed, you may find your regular mouse and keyboard are just too slow and cumbersome for fast-paced dogfights.

When you first lay hands on the HP OMEN Mouse 600, you’ll feel the difference. It’s like getting out of a Ford space wagon and jumping into a Ferrari. This gaming mouse offers speed and precision on a completely different level.

What’s more, you should be happy to play for longer. The ergonomic design won’t place your hand under any stress, meaning you won’t wake up the next day with wrist pain.

Of course, you may want different settings for different games or scenarios. So, the folks at HP put settings controls right on the mouse. As a result, you can change the sensitivity without breaking stride.

The customization doesn’t stop there. The Mouse 600 has internal weights to ensure stability. Between gaming sessions, you can move these weights around to find the perfect balance.
