What is a Scroll Wheel Encoder, and Why Gamers Love TTC Gold?

In a gaming mouse, not all components are alike between models and brands. This is even more noticeable in a scroll wheel encoder. A great encoder, like a TTC Gold, provides clear tactile steps and is designed with gamers in mind.

So, what exactly is a scroll wheel encoder, and why is it important for gaming mice?

Why a Good Scroll Wheel Encoder Like TTC Gold Matters!

Scroll wheel encoders act as the way for a scroll wheel to, well, scroll! Different encoders give an entirely different feeling and do not affect the clicking of the scroll wheel. Essentially, all a scroll wheel encoder does is affect the feeling of the scrolling and rotations of the wheel itself.

While some scroll wheels may give a light and smooth scroll, some give a tactile feeling with well-defined steps. For gaming, TTC Gold is the “Gold Standard” for scroll wheels, which is why our Aria includes it right out of the box.

TTC Gold scroll wheel encoders are one of the most popular encoders on the market for gaming, and are a safe choice as they’re preferred by most gamers, regardless of game. TTC Gold encoders also provide a great balance between smoothness and tactility, making them incredibly comfortable for most people.
