A Closer Look
The mouse looks ultra-sleek and premium from the moment you take it out of the box. There is a really cool finish on the plastics which just gives it a gorgeous look and feel.
Down the left side of the mouse, you will find textured design, which will allow you to get a firmer grip on the mouse. There are two navigation buttons, which have a nice recessed design and angle, allowing you to use them by simply sliding your thumb over them.
The mouse uses a fairly classic ergonomic shape, albeit asymmetrical one so that it feels comfortable in both the left and right hand. However, mistake that this is still a right hand, no navigation buttons on the right-hand side.
While it’s hard to see with the light off, there is an RGB logo here on the rear. Of course, we will see that in action shortly.
Both the left and right mouse buttons and mounted on their own individual pivots. This is great, cross-talk, and vibrations between the switches, giving them a more positive feel overall. All the way they are sprung also ensures they have a short travel distance, and a fast return, which going to bring obvious advantages for gamers.
The scroll wheel is pretty sizable, comes with a soft rubber grip and the nicely defined notch when turned insurance smooth and accurate control every time. There is also a ring of RGB here, giving you something else to customise later. Of course, the scroll wheel is also clickable.
At the front of the mouse, you’ll find a recessed USB Type-C port, she can use the included cable with to charge or use the mouse in or wired mode. I like the fact that it can be used wired, and I know sometimes in competitions games tend to step away from wireless for fear of any interference, however, with modern gaming mice, that’s no longer a major concern.
Despite having its own built-in, the mouse is surprisingly like wait, great for long term and agility while gaming. However, it mostly glides incredibly smoothly due to the large PTFE pads applied to the bottom. I know you don’t see the underside of a mouse very often, but I must admit this one does look pretty cool.
There are a few basic controls down here too. This being a wireless mouse, you can manually turn it off. The mouse will automatically go to sleep after a set time to conserve power, but as far as I can tell, the automatic wake-up time almost instantaneous and never felt like a burden
