The peripheral market is flooded with millions of accessories that can help you accessorize just about everything. Amidst all this clutter of choices and chaos, Asus launched their silent MD 100 wireless mouse. It’s sleek, minimalistic and most of all it’s silent. Whisper silent according to Asus.

Design

The MD 100 is just under 3 cm tall, weighs 60 gms (without the battery) and the symmetrical design makes it an exemplary fit irrespective of your dominant hand. Inside the box, you get two colour options for the cover, which can be switched easily. Two small magnets keep the cover from coming off. The battery sits comfortably under the cover, and so does the dongle that would otherwise be used to connect to your laptop or your desktop. Asus has included a small strap which in my opinion is a very neat addition. Moving from meeting room to meeting room is going to be less of a hassle now. I am sure you can relate.

Features

Apart from the sleek form factor, the most desirable feature, according to me, is the silent clicks. According to Asus, the noise generated by click is around 20db and is 10db less than a whisper. According to my Ear, I could not hear the click during my usage even in a quiet environment. So it’s quiet or I need to see an otolaryngologist at the earliest. MD 100 also comes engineered to last 10-million clicks, which is exceptional considering other office mice can manage only half the number of clicks.

The battery life on the MD 100 is about 12 months, which means you don’t have to worry about it dying on you in the middle of a presentation. Let’s not forget that the mouse is providing this sort of battery backup with two connectivity options, Bluetooth and 2.4Ghz wifi.

The DPI on the MD 100 can be adjusted to suit most of your tasks. There are three DPI levels, 800, 1000 and 1600. And the PTFE mouse feet, usually found on gaming mice helps the MD 100 glide effortlessly on most surfaces. And the anti-bacterial material of the MD 100 keeps the mouse body bacteria-free ( I had no way to test this, so let’s roll with it for now).

In Conclusion

It is sleek, it is minimalistic, it is portable and packs a good battery life. At 2100 Rupees, it is not exactly cheap, but I feel the price is justified with the kind of features it brings to the table. It silently became my favourite accessory I carry on my travels.
