Thirdwave opened a new “DOSPARA Mito Akatsuka store” in Mito City, Ibaraki Prefecture on November 27th.

The DOSPARA Mito Akatsuka store is an experience-based computer shop with the concept of “I wanted to see it once, I wanted to touch it.” Thirdwave, which is strengthening store openings in the roadside of local cities, has opened seven stores of this new concept in one year. The first Dospara Zama Sobudai store will open on November 28, 2020, so it is calculated that the number is increasing at a pace of about one store every two months. It is a fairly fast paced store opening.

The Dospara Mito Akatsuka store is a 6-minute walk from Akatsuka Station on the Joban Line and a 1-minute walk from the nearest “Takamagahara Bus Stop”, making it a very good location not only by car but also by public transportation. The store area was as large as 529 square meters, and the exhibition was quite spacious. The parking lot has 20 cars that can be shared with the next tenant (Lawson). If you’re a local, you’ll know “where GU used to be”.

Check out the spacious and spacious store!

Compared to ordinary computer shops, Dospara’s new concept store is more related to gaming, and is characterized by the fact that you can actually touch and experience many products. Also, it is a point that some PC environment exhibits are prepared in a form that can be used. As it is a roadside store in the suburbs, it has a high ceiling and a spacious store structure.

In addition to ordering finished PCs and BTO products, we also have self-made spaces in addition to parts for self-made and upgrades. The basic product mix is ​​the same as the new concept stores so far.

    This is a distribution environment that assumes face-to-face distribution. Since it is an exhibition, it is placed next to it, but a green back is also placed.Also, although not shown in the photo, there was also a sound absorbing material.

    It is advantageous to have a high-quality microphone for distribution.It is quite difficult to compare the sound quality of microphones before buying, but at DOSPARA Mito Akatsuka, there is a check environment where you can actually check the sound.

    In the back on the left side of the entrance, goods from Shanghai wholesalers and bargain items for the opening sale (batteries, mobile batteries, etc.) were lined up.

The new point is the difference between the web cam comparison demo and the mouse that gamers want to know.

This time, as an attempt at a new exhibition, there was a space where you can compare the webcam and check the sensitivity of the gaming mouse. The former is a must-have item not only for game distribution but also for home and remote work, so in 2020 it is an environment where you can check the image quality of the “Web camera” that was out of stock for a while. It wasn’t likely. Those who want a better environment for remote meetings should check it out, including the microphone. The demo is a comparison of 4 products, but besides that, we also had a webcam with ASUS AI noise canceling function in stock.

    There was a comparative exhibition of webcams as an unprecedented attempt. For Logitech, the C270n product is a bestseller, but you can’t really see how it differs from the higher-end C922n, products with ring lights, and ultra-wide-angle output products.It appeals not only to gamers but also to businessmen who work from home.

For the latter, we have prepared four types of wireless mice so that you can experience the weight of the mouse, which is often referred to as “low sensitivity” and “high sensitivity” in gaming mice. Many gaming mice can change the sensitivity depending on the type of game and the player’s preference, but you can actually experience this.

Sensitivity competition has occurred with gaming mice because the higher the sensitivity, the higher the specs, but in reality, “it moves a lot with just a little movement”, so the difference in aiming 1 dot is a high technology in games that divide life and death. You may need it.

On the other hand, in the case of low sensitivity, you need to move the mouse a lot, and you may use a large mouse pad, lift and move the mouse, and you may lose in the operation time.

Some models have a sensitivity switching function even with a normal mouse, but the feature of a gaming mouse is that it can be set in detail. By the way, I had the opportunity to see the practice of a professional FPS player, but I quickly jumped out of the shadows and aimed at the head of the enemy soldiers.

    An exhibition where you can compare the sensitivity and weight of a gaming mouse. It is quite valuable to be able to compare a super lightweight mouse of about 50g to a heavyweight mouse of 120g or more.

Core i9-12900K is in stock! But without DDR5 module …

The hidden point is that the new Dospara store has rare products that are not found in other stores. The highlight of this time is the top model “Core i9-12900K” which was sold out first on the release date of the 12th generation Core processor (Alder Lake-S) the other day. There were a few in stock. Of course, compatible motherboards.

However, unfortunately, DDR5 memory is out of stock and it is in a difficult situation. DDR5 memory modules are expected to continue to be in short supply in 2022, and the Dospara Akihabara store on the release date of the 12th generation Core processor also said, “We could not sell in advance because the arrival of DDR5 memory modules was not confirmed until today. Also, the next arrival is undecided, so I can’t make a reservation (a clerk talks) “, and even sold it to new CPU purchasers that night. As for the GALLERIA brand gaming PC BTO model, the DDR5 memory usage model is out of stock.

By the way, Dospara is opening a new concept store at a high pace, but when asked about the next new store schedule, it was “undecided”. Previously, I said, “I’m going to real estate agents all over the country and continuing steady activities to select store candidates, saying,’I want you to contact me if you have a good property.'” You may be looking for.

There are now 2 new concept stores in Tohoku, 3 in Kanto, and 1 in Kansai and 1 in Shikoku. I’m looking forward to where the next will be.

    By the way, this time I shot it with Google Pixel 6. Speaking of Pixel 6, it is attractive to be able to erase unnecessary things with “eraser magic”, so when I tried it, the electric wire disappeared in one shot, but the utility pole remained and the signboard had a shadow of the electric wire, so it became unnatural. (The previous store manager image is in portrait mode, and the others are normally taken with a camera)
