Genesis announces ultra-light 70-gram Krypton 550 gaming mouse for US$37
Genesis recently announced the Krypton 550, an ultra-light gaming mouse featuring RGB lighting and 7 customizable buttons with Huon switches. Weighing in at just 70 grams, the Genesis Krypton 550 packs in an 8000 DPI sensor, too. Genesis managed to keep the weight low by utilizing a chassis with honeycomb perforations, lightweight materials, and a very small profile.
The Krypton 550 isn't on the market right now, but is expected to be available in the weeks to come. It'll retail at US$36.99. Taken individually, the Krypton 550's specs aren't exactly earth-shattering. We're looking at a fairly entry-level PMW3325 optical sensor that goes up to 8000 DPI sensitivity and 20G acceleration. What is noteworthy, though, is how Genesis managed to cram such a large feature set into such a small mouse at a budget price.
The RGB lighting largely goes to waste, since your palm will take up most of the Krypton 550's real estate. However, the 7 mouse buttons with Huon switches give players a number of options. At US$37, this could be a good fit if you're looking for an ultra-light, feature-rich budget gaming mouse.
