New color, more durable switches
If you’re looking for a budget mouse like Asus ROG’s Sica but need something to compliment the look of your white themed PC, you’re in luck—there’s a new version of the Sica available, one with a Glacier White color finish.
In addition to a new color option, Asus also upgraded the mouse’s swappable Omron switches. They’re good for 20-million clicks, though if you don’t like the feel (or manage to wear them out), the swappable switch sockets allow you to install different ones. Asus says its rodent supports Omron D2F Series switches (D2F, D2F-F, D2F-01, D2F-01F), and Omron D2FC Series switches (D2FC-3M, D2FC-F-7N, D2FC-F-7N [10 million click lifespan], D2FC-F-7N [20-million click lifespan]). Interestingly, it’s only the Glacier White model that gets the upgraded switches.
The Sica isn’t a complex mouse, though Asus claims it was built with input from pro gamers. It sports an ambidextrous design with two independent buttons, a clickable scroll wheel, 5,000 DPI optical sensor, 30g tracking acceleration, tracking speed of 130 inches per second, 1,000Hz polling rate, and and a 2-meter long rubber cable with a gold-plated cable.
Asus didn’t say how much the Glacier White edition of its Sica mouse will cost or when it will be available, though as a point of reference, the black model is currently marked down to $40 (from $60) at Asus’ online store.
