Your monitor is at the heart of everything you do. And surprisingly, it's often overlooked as an integral part of the setup. We've hand-picked the best monitors on the market for competetive play and stunning visuals, from the best brands in the world - you wouldn't expect anything less, would you?
The panel type of a monitor provide different charaterisitics, making each suited for specific uses.
The time a monitor will take to shift from one colour to another. This is measured in milliseconds. A response time of 5ms or under is considered good for gaming.
The refrest rate of the monitor relates to how quickly the monitor can change frames/visuals. Having a higher refresh rate allows the monitor to keep pace with high-twitch input games, providing super smooth actions and transitions on screen.

The brightness at which the monitor can reach. The brightness of a monitor is all down to personal preference, however too much brightness can be a recipe for eye strain.
The aspect ratio is the ratio of width to its height. The common aspect ratio for monitors is 16:9, with 21:9 and 32:9 used for widescreen and ultra-widescreen monitors also avialable
As your graphics card pushes images to the monitor as fast as it can, any frames delivered outside of the monitors refresh schedule will be shown alongside the previous frame. This is what causes the screen tearing issue. Adaptive Sync Tech allows the monitor to tell the graphics card to wait until the monitor is ready to display the frames.
A short sentence describing the term.
The contrast ratio describes the luminance of the brightest white and darkest black the monitor can produce. A higher contrast ratio will improve picture quality, especially in dark scenes in movies and games.

There are many factors that come into play when sizing your mouse, such as shape and grip style, but we've focused on the size of your hand comparitive to the mouse itself.
Length: Measure your hand from the base of your palm to the top of your middle finger.
Width: Measure from the knuckle of your thumb to the edge of your palm.
*These sizes should only be used as a guide, but we would love to hear your feedback on your own personal experience. All mouse sizes shown here at EG are based on this guide.
When you're looking to switch out your skates, you’ll need to choose replacements that fit your specific model of mouse due to each mouse having a different layout on its base where the skates are installed. The exception being brands who use the same mouse chassis for multiple models, but that will be mentioned on the skates product description.
Once you have your replacement mouse skates in hand, it's now time to remove your old ones from the base of the mouse. There are a few different methods to do this, but we’ll cover the main, most reliable method (in our opinion):
Method: Hairdryer & Spudger (removal tool)
This method involves using the hairdryer to heat up the glue underneath the mouse feet. Once the glue has been heated long enough, use a spudger (a flat plastic tool with a sharp end) or a knife to scrape underneath the feet to peel them off — be careful if using a knife! Be careful when using the hairdryer too, as you want to avoid overheating the mouse, which can cause damage to your mouse (plastic melting or warping) and also cause injury to yourself, so proceed with caution.You can use the spudger or knife on its own without using the hairdryer, especially if you're unsure of how long to heat the feet up by. This may leave traces of glue on the bottom of the mouse however, which will need to be removed before attaching the new mouse feet.
Installing your new skates
Once you have removed all the old skates from the base your mouse, give the surface a clean by using rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl). This will remove any excess adhesive that may still be present. Leave the mouse to dry, and then it's time to apply the new ones.Almost all aftermarket mouse skates will be a simple case of peeling and sticking onto the mouse, ensuring the feet are applied evenly to prevent any air bubbles from appearing.
