HP Omen Spacer Wireless TKL keyboard and Omen Vector Wireless mouse seem to be enticing options for lag-free wireless gaming
HP is announcing a few new additions to its gaming accessory lineup. We've seen the Omen Blast and Omen Frequency Wireless before and now it is time to take a look at the Omen Space Wireless tenkeyless (TKL) keyboard and the Omen Vector Wireless mouse.
HP Omen Spacer Wireless TKL Keyboard
The Omen Spacer is a wireless TKL keyboard that utilizes Warp Wireless Technology over the 2.4 GHz frequency band. HP says that this wireless connection is as fast as a traditional wire though it still bundles a cable with the keyboard for flexibility. The Omen Spacer uses Cherry MX Brown switches with a 1 ms response time and a rated lifetime of up to 100 million keystrokes.
The keys offer 100% anti-ghosting with N-key rollover. They also can be fully configured to offer custom lighting and macro functionality via HP's Omen Command Center software. According to HP, the Omen Spacer Wireless can offer up to six hours of play time with just five minutes of charging via USB-C and up to 75 hours on a full charge. A detachable USB cable and a magnetic palm rest come included in the box.
HP Vector Wireless Mouse
The Vector Wireless mouse uses the same Warp Wireless Technology as the Omen Spacer keyboard and offers 1 ms polling rates with extremely low input lag. The Vector Wireless uses a PixArt PAW3335 sensor that allows for customizing the DPI between 100 to 16,000 with a tracking speed of 400 inches per second and an acceleration of 40G. HP says that the Vector Wireless tracks with a 99% accuracy.
The Vector Wireless is designed primarily for right hand use and can be gripped in both palm and claw styles. There are a total of six programmable buttons and they can be customized in the Omen Command Center, which can also be used to control the lighting.
The Vector Wireless uses Omron mechanical switches for the left and right buttons and these are rated for 50 million clicks each. The Vector Wireless can be used both in wired and wireless modes. HP says that just 30 seconds of charging via USB-C can offer up to an hour of battery life while a full charge can yield up to 180 hours.
The HP Omen Spacer Wireless TKL keyboard is available for pre-order via hp.com for US$159.99 while the HP Vector Wireless mouse can be purchased now for US$99.99.
