Introduction

Wireless mice have often suffered from the assumption that they are not as good as hard wired mice. More often than not this is simply because there is lag in getting the signal from the mouse to the PC quick enough, something that people who take their gaming seriously really care about as a few extra milliseconds can be the difference between death or an epic head-shot. Then there are problems with battery life, or a lack of extra features that you often find on premium wired gaming mice. Gigabyte know this, so Gigabyte are going to try and do something about it, that is where the Aivia Uranium comes into play, and if it is as powerful as the periodic element that it is named after, we are in for a real treat.

Gaming is big business these days and many gamers have little issue with paying a premium for quality gaming gear, especially if there will be a noticeable improvement to their gaming experience, or of course any general improvement in the comfort and productivity while using a computer. The Uranium mouse is quite expensive at around £90 – £100 (prices taken from Google Shopping), but it does pack an impressive feature set as well as some truly unique features, such as the OLED equipped Ghost Macro Station, high quality sensor and wireless technology.

The packaging we have here isn’t the final retail edition, Gigabyte say it will be of a higher quality upon release but things are already looking pretty good in my opinion. We have a great image of the mouse and the Ghost Macro Station on the front of the box and a few details about the wireless technology on the right side.

Around the back we have a run down of the major features, this includes the 4-direction mouse wheel that also acts as a controller for the OLED display of the Ghost Station. There are 10 programmable buttons, DPI switching, 50 hours battery lift with play and charge capability and live editing of macros and settings.

Inside the slip cover I found a nice presentation box with the Aivia logo on the top.

Inside we have the Uranium element symbol and number, the mouse and the Ghost Station.

The small box at the top contains some leaflets and general user information, the rechargeable batteries as well as some replacement Teflon slipmats.

The Ghost Station comes hard wired with a long braided cable, two gold plated USB connectors and a small Velcro strap to keep your cables nice and tidy.
