How can we buy a mouse with the lowest price? Most of us hope to get the best price and save money. However, we may try to think out of the box, which means that we need to think about another aspect of getting the best mouse to a person. You may need to consider the C/P(capability/price) value of a mouse.
There are two angels to think about the C/P value.
- The value of the new function or upgrade of the version mouse.
- How long will the new value of the mouse be lasting?
The first description is that we should think about the new function and where did the mouse be upgraded because the value will reflect on its price. Even we had thought about the value of the new part, it is also very important to figure out how long will it take to get to the next upgrade timing. And why it is important to figure out during the time of the new value? The reason is that if the new technology can be lasting for a very long time even over the average lifetime of a normal mouse or the cycle time of your mouse change timing, it will be a very cost-effective business deal to buy a new mouse ib the timing.
How to assess the lasting time of the new technology?
Just like the evaluation of any other type of productions, the first step you could do is to check the lifetime of the same type of products with the same brand. Or you can check the same type of mouse with different brands, and you could summarize and do the assessment in the early stage. The more effort and research we could do, the higher the C/P value we could get. If we get the higher C/P value, it means you have bought a mouse in the better timing. Further, you could check that what is the different technology does the new mouse have. After finding and confirming the similar technology of the mouse, we would have to check the average lifetime of similar technology.
The history of the mouse band
Why need to search and do the study for the company of the mouse? The main reason is that we need to check the major product type they are good at for the specific technology. What is the ratio of abnormal products, and the possibility of malfunction after the warranty day expiring? On the other side, what is the main procedure or steps that the company will take for the marketing approach? Is it possible that they will put the on-sale activity on some specific holidays? If the company will do these kinds of activities, we could check how much discount would they offer in the activity. If the sale price was not very attractive, we should find other timing to buy the mouse. Besides check the on-sale price of the brand, it is also pretty important to include the time and cost we may have to pay for the malfunction production. If we get one defective, it will cost our time and transportation fee for the recovery by the original vendor. Finally, did the company did lots of products like a computer mouse? Or they just want to earn money? We hope to find a company that has lots of experience in mouse manufacturing. In the condition, the quality and the function of their computer mouse will have a high possibility to reach the art of the state. It is the best situation that some pro gamer has used their products for a long time, usually over 2 years. If the performance of the pro gamer is very ideal, this can be one of the evidence of their computer mouse.
The comment and the experience of other buyers
What kind of problem and issue do other customers face with? This would be very helpful for us to find out and figure out the risk of buying this mouse. We could find lots of articles or stories on many websites and forums. And, mostly there are two kinds of people who post their comments as articles or videos on the websites. The first kind of people are those who like their new mouse very much or they like to do some record to share lots of comments, articles, photos, and videos to let another check if other people like it or not. We could also adjust our mindset and our criteria before buying the mouse. The second kind of people are those who bought a defective, and they usually inform the selling stores or contact directly with the original vendor of the mouse. The treatment the company provided to the buyers will be one of the indexes and signals to considering whether it is a good company to manufacture the high-quality mouse.
Your demand and expectation of a mouse
What function and the criteria are your mice by your own goal and expectation? Interestingly, we could do the imagination of the external looking and the different functions on our own first as the first step. For example, we would like to set an appropriate price in our mind first and just wait for the good timing if the storage and inventory of the mouse are pretty high, and the function as wireless but still have the level of certain DPI, battery endurance and click life count is reached the criteria of lots of gaming player or office workers. On the other hand, we may hope and expect some specific functions, and we could check the necessity. It also works to check other people’s articles and comments on the websites. For example, how often do we use the macro function of our mouse or keyboards? This might be the key issue of the computer mouse price.
To sum up, we should know ourselves better and do the research as much as we could, we can get a better price. Combined the timing, value, and the criteria of our own. We could transform the information into another kind of value. I hope the concepts will help you!
