QPAD 5K Gaming Mouse

The gaming segment of the computer world is one of those more "underground" areas that's a lot bigger than most people realize. There's a lot of companies that exist with the sole purpose of bringing high performance gaming peripherals to gamers and don't spend their time focusing in other markets like the home-office users. One area that thrives the most in this market is the mouse and mouse surface segment. In the majority of games, the fast movement and quick selections that need to be made are all done with the mouse. For that reason, a mouse is needed that is responsive, highly "tweakable", and comfortable for extended use.

This is where QPAD comes into the picture. QPAD is a Swedish company that has been around since 1994 and specializes strictly in gaming gear like mouse surfaces, mouse enhancements, and even have their own flagship mouse and headset models currently on the market now too. QPAD has a strong grassroots commitment to gamers. They are gamers themselves, and they interact heavily with gamers through sponsorships, tournaments, LAN parties and research. QPAD doesn't just design a product in a lab and release it, they design a product and then rely on real-world feedback from gamers to refine it to a point where they can release it. Today, I'm getting my introduction to QPAD by checking out their gaming mouse, the 5K. If you're interested in seeing other areas of the QPAD line, I have a mouse surface review right around the corner too.
