Conclusion


I was thoroughly impressed with the Cyber Snipa Stinger laser gaming mouse. For a name I had not heard of before, it definitely proved to be a useful asset to FPS gaming and handy for just moving around the desktop as well. The selectable dpi setting was by far the most useful feature I found, although the programmable buttons and macro editor rate a close second. The grip and feel of the mouse are very comfortable and I did not find anything a pain to use, with the possible exception of the slight reach to the dpi button.

As far as performance, the Stinger excelled at everything I threw at it. I did not experience any hiccups or other anomalies while gaming as have sometimes occurred with my optical mouse. I use a soft-top gaming mouse pad and I found the adjustable weights to be very beneficial in tuning the perfect feel or resistance across the surface. Most likely if you have a hard pad you will want more weight and vice-versa for a soft pad, but each user is going to have their own preference and the Stinger definitely accommodates. This was one of the unique features I liked about the Stinger that I had not used before in a mouse.

I found the Stinger online for between $45-$50 which is certainly not unreasonable for a mouse, especially one of this quality. The average user probably won't find the price attractive enough to warrant its purchase over a basic optical mouse, but the Stinger is designed for gamers and that is where it excels. Compared to other brands of laser gaming mice with similar features, the Stinger is a bargain. And for that, it deserves the OCIA.net Seal of Approval.
