For an entry-level laser mouse, the Redragon M901 Perdition looks great and certainly fits the role nicely. It’s USB powered, features a 2500dpi as standard and can run at a whopping 16400dpi when set to full function. Here’s a look at the ins and outs of this handy piece of hardware, including its specifications.
The Redragon M901 Perdition Laser Mouse
Having the option to scan a maximum of 16400dpi can have its benefits, and there’s not much that the M901 won’t glide over with ease. The highly responsive laser scans each and every particle that the mouse passes over, and instead of being interrupted if a larger particle decides to attempt to block the retina of the laser; the clever Redragon software cross-references the results with surrounding areas and then defines whether or not the particle is an obstruction; or something to pay attention to. If it’s an obstruction, it will be overlooked and ignored like it doesn’t exist.
The M901 isn’t just a mouse however; it can act as a calculator, a number pad and even has two central buttons and a customizable button to compliment the left and right clickers. As the mouse is powered by a high speed USB – responsiveness is under 0.10ms and the pleasant rubberised material can provide comfort and usability for hours on end.
When it comes to gaming however, the Redragon M901 Perdition really outshines the competition. Where most mice implement the use of click-able buttons; there’s not many that can boast a full number pad ranging from 1 to 12. As the buttons are also contoured; it won’t take long to get used to their positioning – and once each number’s location is understood, it will be a simple task of pressing the right ones during game play.
Rather than using a keyboard that will require button locating and pressing; the M901 takes care of the hard work as it’s very likely that one hand will be on a mouse at all times during gaming.
Redragon haven’t sacrificed any of the mouse’s aesthetic appearance in favour of performance either. The mouse features the branded logo (which emanates a glow when switched on), as well as a stylish red and black outer shell. At night, the mouse’s buttons will glow with a soft light, and during the day the pleasant matte black and red colour scheme instantly draws attention.
As far as computer accessories go, this mouse will go very well with any keyboard of a similar colour, and it will undoubtedly enhance the general usability of any gaming system. It doesn’t take up much power either and can be connected directly to most gaming keyboards for even more accurate responsiveness. Considering the entry-level price and high-end performance, the Redragon M901 Perdition is definitely worth the minor investment, and its heavy duty construction can all but guarantee years of use.
