    who is that geek?

    I like Logitech mice, but that one lost me at "wireless" (and again at $150).

    People spending hundreds for "high-end" keyboards and mice has always been a little weird to me. You don't want to go super cheap on them, but the mid-range options are perfect. Some of the higher-end gaming mice I've tried felt like absolute crap to me (or had too many buttons/settings). Same goes for mechanical keyboards.

    I'm using one of those thin metal Apple keyboards and a Dell mouse atm while two Razer mice, a Logitech MMO mouse, and Corsair $120 mechanical keyboard collect dust in the closet.

    I have all wired mice right now (because I'm lazy as shit and don't want to worry about charging), but sometimes I do want to switch back to wireless. Not at $150 though.

    But for me the mech keyboard is well worth it. For as much typing as I do, $100-ish seems like peanuts for my primary work interface. The apple keyboards do not do it for me at all (nor do standard keyboards). I mean all those are usable but I definitely prefer good mechanical ones. They've also come down in price a good bit.

    This one is my current fav:

    you can get a fine wireless mouse for ~$30-40

    if the $150 mouse isn't giving me a blowjob and assuring me my midlife crisis will never come i dont see why i'm buying it

    I have one of that Corsair K-series and it was the only keyboard I've ever used that was literally unusable for me. I rest my hands kinda heavy on the keys and would get accidental key presses constantly due to how sensitive they are.

    It reminds me of fighting sticks that the nerd pros prefer that have these feather-weight buttons with zero resistance. I hate them. I need that resistance for my retarded caveman hands.

    It's curious that they're marketing a wireless mouse to the SUPER-SERIOUS ESPORTS PRO GAMER despite wireless being synonymous with adding input lag.

    I tried a $50 logitech wireless for a while and trashed it. The times it would randomly screw up (not in games - just normal work stuff) were way more annoying than having a black cord on my desk.

    i feel like a ~40 foot wired mouse is always more useful than a wireless mouse

    it's not a god damned VR headset

    that's exactly the problem

    i am willing to believe it is sick as shit if your reaction time can keep up with it and you get paid millions of dollars for doing nothing of vlaue

    but if it can't and you only get paid thousands of dollars for doing little of value?

    welp

    i'm actually right there with you, that 1ms superlightning performance is a rounding error for my potato-like reaction times.

    i'm only posting this as a "if i had fuck you money" thing. if i were super rich i'd buy this and hire someone to just charge it for me as needed

    for me this is a "holy shit i am now burning money on fire in front of me out of boredom because i used to have ethics but now i have money" item

    not a "welp im kinda monetarily ok so time to buy this dumb fucking mouse utumno posted on the internet god damnit utumno"
