Does lighting really have a benefit?
For the hardcore gamer, much time is spent gaming at night, which is when the LEDs can come in handy, albeit one colour would probably suffice.
For the casual gamer, it may not be worth the extra cost just to flick a few lights on once in a blue moon.

‘Ghosting’ is when a keyboard is unable to register more than one keystroke at once which is a common problem in standard setups that only offer 1 or 2 Key Rollover. We recommend no lower than 6 Key Rollover if you take your gaming seriously.

Membrane vs Mechanical: EG recommends mechanical every time, it may be a little pricier but we believe it’s worth it for the added reliability and durability.
Cherry MX are the gold standard of switches. All colours are pretty resistant but brown are extra quiet, blue not so much, and red (the most popular) are right in the middle. It's worth keeping this in mind if you use open-mic!

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.
