by Matt Serrano on April 9, 2007 in Peripherals

OCZ has been hard at work lately. Their product lineup has evolved from offering power supplies and ram to flash drives, cooling solutions, video cards and even gaming mice. However, one thing’s stayed the same: they’ve targeted themselves towards enthusiasts.

Though some have varied opinions, for the most part gaming isn’t as simple as pointing and clicking. Gamers who are more competitive desire an edge, something that’s as responsive as they are. Once the core’s been taken care of, comfort and ease of use take the front stage.

Today, we’ll be reviewing OCZ’s Equalizer mouse. This product goes have some innovative features that do set it apart. Geared towards gamers, this mouse seems to be one of the most attractive solutions out there. But even though it looks great on paper, there’s always a level of skeptically that should be reached, with good reason.

Closer look

The Equalizer is in fact made up of two models noted as the "desktop" and "mobile" models. The only visible difference is the size of the mice.

OCZ has never been unified with their box designs. Every product has had different art work or theme. The Equalizer comes in a simple blue box with the mouse shown through with flames accompanying it.

The back holds the product’s feature set outlined for potential buyers.

The mouse itself has a reflective blue finish.

Next to the scroll wheel there is a button called the "Triple Threat" button, giving you the option of simulating three mouse clicks with one press.

There is a button on the top of the mouse specifically designed for changing the DPI. The Equalizer has a feature that lets you know what setting the mouse it set on.

On the left side there are forward and back buttons with a thumb grip.

Besides the mouse, a manual, driver CD and mouse feet are included in the package.
