NEWS – Mousing is sometimes a hit or miss proposition, depending on where you rest your mouse. Some colors, or even worse, glass, with a complete lack of color or contrast, can confound many optical mice. Cherry aims to end that problem with the Cherry MW 8 Advanced optical LED laser mouse.
Sporting a metal surface and mouse wheel and anodized aluminum shell with rubber sides, the mouse has a build quality that should last. Optical resolution can be set to 600, 1,000, 1,600 or 3,200 dpi, allowing for precise cursor movement, even on 4K monitors. Six buttons and a scroll wheel allow for versatility in mousing functions.
The mouse is powered via its internal lithium 550 mAh battery that should allow for several weeks of pointing and clicking between charges. Charging is done with the included USB cord. The mouse can be used while charging. The micro USB charge port is in the front of the mouse, essentially making the MW 8 Advanced mimic a corded mouse while charging.
The MW 8 Advanced can connect to your PC via the included 2.4 GHz USB receiver or Bluetooth 4.0. It can switch between the two allowing for easy movement between two different PCs.
Cherry introduced the MW 8 Advanced in Europe late in 2018. It should be available very soon in the US for a suggested retail price of $50. Head over to Cherry’s site for more details.
