We recommend a lot of GSkill memory and that’s why it’s so exciting to be reviewing their first mouse, the Gskill Ripjaws MX780 Gaming Mouse. After all, it’s not every day a company we love gets into the gaming mouse market.
The Ripjaws MX780 team has certainly done their homework. 8200 DPI Laser sensor, custom sizing, RGB lighting, 8 programmable buttons and it’s also ambidextrous. Nice, and that’s not even the full list! But can a first generation mouse compete? Let’s find out!
At first glance the MX780 brings to mind any number of popular designs but the look is distinctive. The core of the MX780 is the aluminum chassis housing the Avago 8200 DPI sensor. While not the highest DPI we see advertised, it is a popular choice for dependability and sensitivity. The main switches are Omron micro switches making the life over 20 million clicks. Not bad for a first attempt.
