NZXT Launches Avatar S Gaming Mouse

NZXT is a little late in trying to capitalize on the Avatar hype, and entirely way to early to pitch a branded product as being based off of a classic (like Star Wars, for example). But whatever, we'll cut NZXT some slack here because, well, the company's new Avatar S gaming mice look really cool.

These rodents inspired by James Cameron's ridiculously successful film come in either black or white. What's that, no blue version!? Apparently not, though blue LED highlights accent the mice.

Professional gamers probably need not apply, but for everyone else, the Avatar S series boasts up to 1600 DPI (you can switch between 1600, 800, and 400 in-game using a physical switch -- no drivers required). Other features include 5 buttons, 30 inches/second max speed, 20g max acceleration, and 16kb of onboard memory to save your personalized settings.

"We designed Avatar S as an intuitive solution that gives gamers maximum personalization with minimum hassle," said Johnny Hou, Founder and Chief Designer at NZXT. "Your profile settings can be easily configured and then saved onto the onboard memory in case you game on multiple rigs. When gearing up at a LAN party, the last thing gamers should have to worry about is whether or not their mouse is configured correctly. Avatar S eliminates that headache."

Best of all is the price. While we've seen higher end mice go for almost a C-note, owning an Avatar S will only set you back $40 MSRP.

I like NZXT cases, but these mice look like those ones I think many companies give free with a new computer. Not sure on if I would want this mouse over a g9 because I think they're also down to 40$( not 100% on that).

I'll stick with my G500, but if nothing else the white one looks very slick and would go nicely with my white NZXT Phantom.

These two things look real nice. The white and blue really looks nice. Black and blue is alright :). But im good with my mouse as well :)

They look kinda like the Logitech mouse?

I have been having a very hard time finding a good mouse that is long and tall enough to support the palm for long hours of work? The logitech one is long enough, just not tall or wide enough!

I will definitly check these out!

What's nice about these if you like the look and feel of the mouse in your hand .is that having the capability to save profiles in a $40 mouse is great. just the ticket to go with a Phantom chassis
