Func MS-2 Optical Gaming Mouse Review
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
Software for the MS-2 is included in the box on a CD-ROM, but you can also download it from the Func website. The software is really nicely designed and has a clear layout with easy access to all the major functions. You can set the DPI over three stages, plus one extra for the instant aim (sniper) button..
All the buttons on the mouse are programmable with a range of button assignments, macros and launchers.
There’s an RGB colour selector, with an added pulsate effect; great for adding some extra flair.
Full macro recording is included and you can save and load them to the Macro Library.
Sensor performance on the MS-2 is nothing ground breaking, but I’m still very happy with the results. There is a little bit of jitter on the higher DPI settings, but nothing that would cause any performance issues as higher speeds like that are more useful for quick turning than headshots; which is where the sniper button comes into play.
Gaming performance on the MS-2 is superb, the sensor works great for any type of gaming and I especially like having the sniper button on the side of the mouse. When playing games like Battlefield 4, I can have a fast turning speed, then use the side button to drop the DPI for extra accuracy. I also found the lower side button handy for toggling DPI, as it meant I didn’t need to take my finger off of the trigger. The optical sensor feels smooth as silk in gaming and for desktop use and the scroll wheel has a soft tactile bump to it. Combined with an ultra low lift-off height, the mouse is great for lift-off play styles; handy if you plan on using low-DPI settings.
The macro functions are really easy to use, and there are enough extra buttons on the mouse to suit the needs of MMO/MOBA style gaming. The front right extra button is handy to have, but it’s in a location I’m not used to and you do have to remind yourself that it’s there. This is good if you don’t need it, as it’s placed in a way that prevents accidental presses, but when you need an extra macro button, you’ll be glad to have it.
