OCZ enters the gaming peripherals market

After offering memory, power supplies, graphics cards, and CPU coolers, OCZ has moved into yet another market segment. This time, the company has announced plans
to introduce gaming peripherals, including a new laser mouse called the Equalizer
Shaped like a slightly beefier Logitech MX518, the Equalizer has six buttons (not including the scroll wheel) and a dual-laser optical sensor with a 2500 DPI resolution. One of the buttons allows on-the-fly switching between 400, 800, 1200, 1600, 2000, and 2500 DPI settings, and the mouse wheel changes color depending on the resolution selected. The mouse also includes a "triple threat" button that emulates a triple click—presumably for gamers who have trouble mastering manual burst fire in fast-paced first-person shooters. The Equalizer comes with OCZ's own "Equalware" software, and OCZ covers the mouse with a six-year warranty.
