Multiple microswitch mouse
« on: Sat, 26 August 2017, 12:15:34 »
I don't understand why some mice have multiple microswitches for one key.If it was for be able to click more I undersyand but can't you just use one switch and program it to click twice...

Thanks!

That would feel weird, wouldn't it? Like a second deeper click.

I have a friend who has a gaming mouse and when he uses it he gets like 14-16 cpa and when he uses a regular mouse he gets 7-9 cps. What's the reason for this?
