The former allows the Calibur to be used with a wide range of devices, from desktops and laptops all the way down to tablets and smartphones, while the latter ensures that the keyboard looks pretty.

Today we’re looking at the Finalmouse Scream One, designed by legendary Counter-Strike pro player Scream. He’s best known for his precise ‘one tap’ shooting style and the many memes it spawned (NSFW), so his mouse must be pretty good, right? Well, sure enough the Scream One is billed to be the ‘best esports mouse in the world’, thanks to its accurate 1:1 sensor, responsive firmware and extremely light weight.
MaxGaming have sent us a unit to test, so let’s see whether it lives up to the hype. We don’t expect to turn into Scream, impressive facial hair erupting as we clutch the mouse for the first time, but it could at [...]
