IOGEAR is a company best known for their computer peripherals, networking, and A/V products. Kaliber is their gaming brand, with all of the standard offerings you would expect of a gaming peripheral brand. Today we’re looking at the Kaliber Gaming Fokus – an affordable gaming mouse with a premium feel.
The first thing I noticed about the FOKUS was the awesome build quality. With an MRSP of $50, a full aluminum body is an unusual and welcome surprise. The FOKUS has 8 programmable buttons (counting left and right click, scroll wheel and DPI button), and an ambidextrous design, making it an ideal choice for rightys and leftys alike. It sports an Avago 9800 laser sensor, with adjustable DPI up to 8200, which is an essential feature if you have a high resolution display.
I am a sucker for RGB lighting, and again, for $50 the FOKUS surprises by including all of the features you would expect out of more expensive products, including RGB lighting and customization software. I had a bit of trouble locating the software, but it turns out the link was just temporarily broken.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised by the FOKUS’s price-to-performance/features. You could certainly do a lot worse for $50. If you’re in the market for an affordable gaming mouse that feels premium, the FOKUS might be the mouse for you.
