Continuing Trend Of Vented Mice, Thermaltake Intros Ventus Z

Quote:
Perhaps calling it a “trend” is a bit much, as Thermaltake seems to be the one doing it, but the company announced a second mouse with palm venting, the Ventus Z. (Get it? Vent-us).

The Ventus Z has arguably a cleaner look than the Level 10 M mouse just introduced into the Tt eSports line; the latter has a small vent on the left side of the palm rest, and there are screws visible elsewhere across the top, whereas the Ventus Z has a large vent that spans across most of the palm rest.

It seems that in addition to the funky vent design, Thermaltake had in mind a mouse with extensive programmability. There are ten switches on the Ventus Z, including an extra pair of buttons on the side. (That is, there are two sets of navigational buttons where one would expect only one.) By default, one of the two sets is programmed for Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V.

With 256 KB of onboard storage, the Ventus Z can accommodate up to 5 profiles, and you can toggle through the profiles with the two buttons on top of the mouse. Because all ten buttons are programmable, you can set up to 50 macros. (If you are a person capable of remembering 50 macros in five sets of 10, you have our utmost respect.)

Evga's video cards are aight. ALOT of cheap looking stuff, maybe I'm wrong who knows. I hate all the words on the motherboards, for example GODLIKE. Maybe I'm just getting old.

Those republic of gamers jackets, the whole 'join the republic' crap whilst holding fists in the air makes me never want to buy another asus product.

Maybe that's how they do it in Taiwan or Asia, so I wouldn't mind as long as they have solid stuff.

pointless, they couldn't have put a 1080 or a 480x in it? The die sizes are smaller....

Like someone mentioned earlier, I think it's meant to target the younger crowd. I mean, when most of us started out, we loved the flashy cathodes, LED fans, etc. Then we learned that subtlety is classy, and that flashy parts are generally crap. I know a lot of car people who have started out this way as well.

With things like E-sports being bigger than it ever has been, and pro players becoming idols and using all of this RGB gear, it makes other people want this nice, flashy looking hardware. The companies are business, and they're going to of course attempt to appeal to this customer base. However, they're doing it while young people are still getting into it. And while I cringe at some of the stuff I'm seeing, I think anything that gets a younger crowd into computers and technology earlier (and in a more meaningful way than smartphones and social media) is a fantastic thing. Maybe 9 out of 10 of those never have the desire to go much further with it, but that 1 in 10 person might.

Agreed. I'd honestly rather go with something like an NCASE M1 and build a more powerful solution. Yes it'll be much larger, but there's a good possibility I'll build it for less even with a premium case and a mid-range desktop GPU.
