Auerbach, 7 September 2018 - CHERRY, the specialist for computer input devices, presents the MW 8 ADVANCED. This brand new wireless mouse does not only offer innovative features, it is also built to meet the highest standards. Moreover, the CHERRY MW 8 ADVANCED can be connected via Bluetooth or 2.4 GHz wireless, which, together with the high-quality optical sensor, makes it ideal for flexible, all-round use.
Best materials and high-quality workmanship
The CHERRY MW 8 ADVANCED joins CHERRY’s portfolio as the new flagship, combining timeless design with state-of-the-art technology. An elegant metal surface made of brushed aluminum conveys the highest quality workmanship, and the rubber pads with trendy Voronoi cell structure on both sides of the mouse ensure a good grip. The MW 8 ADVANCED is rounded off by its comfortable shape, which fits the hand perfectly.
High-precision PixArt sensor
From a technical point of view, MW 8 ADVANCED joins the CHERRY mouse range as a top model, as the high-precision PixArt “track-on-glass” sensor with optical scanning works on all surfaces, including glass. This allows the mouse to be used without a mouse pad. The sensor resolution can be adjusted in four steps between 600, 1000, 1600, and 3200 DPI, making the MW 8 ADVANCED suitable for use with 4K monitors.
Wireless connectivity through 2.4 GHz wireless or Bluetooth
Other highlights of the MW 8 ADVANCED are its connectivity options. Users can simply connect the mouse to a compatible system using the built-in Bluetooth 4.0 functionality, or alternatively, use the supplied USB receiver to establish a 2.4 GHz wireless connection secured with AES encryption. Switching between the two modes is done by sliding the switch at the bottom of the mouse into the desired position. Using this feature, users can connect the MW 8 ADVANCED with a notebook and desktop PC at the same time, quickly switching between the two at the slide of a button.
Integrated battery for long service life
The integrated Lithium battery with a generous capacity of 550 mAh ensures a long service life. Depending on the usage profile, one charge will last up to 70 days. A two-color status LED provides information about the battery charge as well as the selected resolution and the connection to the PC. The wireless mouse is charged via the included USB cable, and remains usable during charging to enable high productivity without interruptions.
Comprehensive feature set
To top off the MW 8 ADVANCED, CHERRY added additional, sophisticated features. These include an extra durable mouse wheel with optical scanning, a magnetic lock for the USB receiver, and a transport bag. These features make the mouse equally well-suited to mobile as to stationary applications.
The CHERRY MW 8 ADVANCED is available from the end of September at a suggested retail price of €50 / $60 / £44.
