It’s always a dilemma whether to pay the extra money for a quality brand or spend less and go for something cheaper and less well known.

Logitech are one of the top gaming mouse brands and renowned for their quality.

So we decided to see what the Logitech G502 Proteus has to offer. It’s fair to say it wasn’t disappointing.


Logitech G502 Proteus

Who are Logitech?

If you don’t know who Logitech are you are probably somewhat new to gaming. Logitech have been synonymous with gaming gear for a very long time and and also renowned for their craftsmanship and customer service.

If you are looking for the highest quality products then generally Logitech will be in the picture.

Logitech G502 Proteus Performance

Polling Rate: Like most gaming mice of any quality these days the Logitech G502 Proteus Core comes equipped with a polling rate of 1000hz.

The polling rate of a mouse refers to how often the mouse sends signals to your computer.

So how much polling rate do you need? Well, to put it into some perspective the average human response time is 215 milliseconds.

For interests sake you can test your reaction time here. With 1000hz, your mouse is sending signals every millisecond. Thats a lot of speed and response from your mouse.

DPI defines the speed & sensitivity of the mouse sensor. For more detailed explanation read our explanation here.

Simply put the higher the DPI the faster your cursor will move across the screen when the mouse is moved. How fast you like your mouse to move will come down to personal preference in your gameplay.

If you like your cursor to move quickly then you are going to want a higher DPI, if you prefer slower movements, then you would want something lower.

Another factor to consider with DPI is your screen size & resolution. Someone with one screen and a low resolution wont need a high DPI to get the mouse across the screen, however a dual screen user with high resolution on both screens will again require a much high DPI.

I personally use a quite a low DPI but it will again depend on your own preferences.

The Logitech G502 Proteus comes with settings of a maximum 12000dpi. You are able to change the DPI and setup up to 5 different profiles with different settings should you need them.

You can change the DPI on the fly with along with being able to change the profiles on the fly giving you a huge array of options to change whilst not having to stop gaming and access any software.

Acceleration The Logitech G502 Proteus features 40g acceleration. If you are unsure what acceleration is read our explanation here.

The Logitech G502 Proteus tracks really well and has a very fluid feel to it along with being very precise. The mechanical buttons feel well constructed and are very crisp.

The side where the pinky goes has a textured grip which helps keep your fingers in place but also is textured so it tends to keep out grit and other things which other textures can sometimes accumulate.

With the the grooves in the mouse design there is some ventilation for to help avoid those sweaty hands. Being an infrared optical sensor the mouse is very accurate and predictable.

Buttons

The Logitech G502 Proteus comes with 11 programmable buttons on the mouse and for those FPS players a sniper button.

The thumb controls 3 buttons with one basically where the thumb rest and two more just above and toward the palm. The mouse wheel can be set to be a click style wheel or a free spinning wheel.

Most customers agree that the buttons have a great tactile feel and are nice, crisp and quiet to press and I would have to agree with that. The middle mouse scroll is smooth and sensitive.

The middle mouse button comes the the tilt shift (left/right) feature which Logitech roll with on their mice.

One of the most common criticisms by consumers of the mouse is the middle scroll wheel. A lot of people felt like it was jamming.

As I personally don’t really need or use the middle mouse tilt shift feature I would have to say it doesn’t feel like the nicest middle mouse button for me.

It feels quite heavy a little bit loose and quite loud but the reasons for that are perhaps tied up in the extra functionality that it offers. It is certainly a feature that sets this mouse apart from others.

There is a neat setting for the scroll button with the button just under the scroll button. The ‘sniper’ button enables you to control the mouse scroll speed. It gives you two options.

One if you need to scroll quickly and one if you need to be more precise. A great feature most gaming mice don’t have and another level of customization available on the proteus.

Profiles & Software

Most purchasers of the Logitech G502 Proteus found the software very easy to use and I agree it is very user friendly. It looks slick and professional and there isn’t much that needs any special interpretation. It’s very intuitive.

One neat feature is that the software includes a calibration to detect the type of surface it will be used on to be more accurate and precise.

Pretty handy for getting the most accuracy out of your mouse. The software for programming the buttons is very extensive ranging from mouse to keystroke to Multi macros, so customization on the mouse is fantastic.

The Logitech G502 mouse carries 3 onboard profiles which are easily interchangeable on the fly with the middle Tilt-Shift button.

You can also save more profiles onto your computer (which obviously would have to be loaded to be selected on the fly).

One very cool thing about the software is the ‘Heat Map’ feature. It can tell you your key presses over your desired time length or the key duration.

Cool if you just want to see what you have been up to over your gaming period or for the elite gamers great to analyse in order to better match your most used hotkeys or macros to your more convenient buttons.

MainButtonsHeat MapTuning Sensor SetupTuning Sensor SetupMacro options

Personalization

The customization terms of colors and effects on the logitech is fairly limited compared to some of the other gaming mice.

Though to me it is not a huge problem, for those that like to perhaps highlight the profile with a colour for easier recognition or for those who just like to mix things up every now and then, you might be a little disappointed – unless you like blue!

You can change the brightness and breathing of the mouse, but not the colour. lights on the side of the mouse will indicate which profile you have and also which DPI setting you have inside that profile.

There are actually 2 shades of blue to differentiate between whether you are selecting your profile or the DPI, but it is very subtle and a tad hard to tell just by looking at the color alone (though you should get the idea from the how many lights are indicated)

Note: Logitech have made an upgrade to the G502 Proteus called the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB which contains the ability to customise the colours like most other high end gaming mice.

Logitech G502 Proteus

The Proteus is a little thinner than one of its rival the UtechSmart Venus, leaving the pinky hanging a little.

Dimensions & Physical

The Logitech G502 Proteus is one of the more longer gaming mice around. Its height measures 132 mm, width 75 mm and depth is 40mm. If you compare that to say, UtechSmart Venus at 117x 76×38. Many customers have found it very comfortable and as expected from Logitech the quality of the mouse is fantastic. from the rubber textures on the sides, grooves for ventilation to the quality braided cable. It looks cool, the materials are top notch.

Once of the more common gripes of the mouse is the fact it is narrower than most mice by a finger, so it leaves your pinky and ring finger floating a little. For me personally it loses a point in comfort to some other mice. I find having somewhere to rest the ring finger really adds to the comfort.

One of the cool things and a crowd pleaser with the Proteus is the weight tuning system. Unlike many other mice the weights have been taken into the design consideration and add to the already stunning looks flawlessly.

While on a lot of other gaming mice you might see some pellet type weights, Logitechs are shaped almost like batmans boomerang. I can certainly appreciate the lengths gone to include this into their overall design.

Logitech G502 Proteus

The weights system is not your standard pellets but are nicely part of the overall design

Warranty & Customer Support

Logitech offer a 3-Year Limited Hardware Warranty with their products (always check before your purchase) but you can also feel fairly safe about any purchase as Logitech are well known for having fantastic customer service should you by chance have any issues. Logitech’s customer support is truly the best in the business.

Consumer Reviews & Ratings

The feedback from other users is overwhelmingly positive with a rating of 4.5 stars with over 2000 ratings so you can rest assured you will be getting a quality mouse.

The most common positive feedback from customers in regards to the Logitech G502 Proteus was in regards to it being very comfortable, its weight tuning system is great, braided cable is top quality, quality of the materials, looks sleek, easy to use and great looking software and inclusion of a sniper button for those FPS.


Even the most beautifully crafted pieces of hardware there will always be some gripes by consumers.

In the case of the G502 its biggest negative in the eyes of consumers seems to be the fact its quite narrow and doesn’t have a spot to rest the pinky finger and the scroll wheel feeling like its jamming.

Some criticized Logitechs software, but I would have to strongly disagree with those people.

Pros

Comfort

Easy to use software

Weight tuning system

High quality materials and components

Heat map software

Surface tuning software

Sniper button – scroll button speed adjustment

Cons

Quite narrow so pinky doesn’t have support

Scroll wheel feels like its jamming sometimes

Conclusion

You can pretty much expect now that Logitech will come to the party when they release a new product and the Proteus is no different. Its a quality mouse made of quality materials and slick to boot.

With 11 programmable buttons you have plenty of options for your macros, while not 18 buttons like a few other mice, I think they have put real effort into making 11 buttons which can easily be used rather than 18 with 4-5 that are hard to press.

The updated Proteus model addressed the lack of lighting colours which says a lot about Logitech and knowing their customers. A few benefits with the software you wouldn’t get from other companies in the Heat Map and tuning system.

Some gamers who might have bigger hands may lament the fact the mouse is quite narrow with no space for the ring finger to rest. Initially I found the scroll wheel a little heavy and clunky and some consumers have had trouble with the wheel but I found it grew on me over time. Overall solid product from Logitech.

The Redragon M601 is one of the biggest selling gaming mice on Amazon and is made by a somewhat newish company to the western world – Redragon.

Best Gaming Mouse

The mouse is tailored for the low price end of the spectrum and does not contain a lot of high end features that some other mice do so if you are looking for a high end mouse then this wont be your answer.

Out of the box this mouse looks and feels a whole lot better than we thought. Although a lot of the materials are quite cheap it does actually look or feel like a cheaps mouse.

But as far as low spec medium grade gaming mice goes then it’s certainly worth a look, especially given the price.


Redragon M601 CENTROPHORUS

Who are Redragon ?

Now Redragon are a lot more popular with a number of products out in the west with many of those products being very successful.

Redragon if you don’t know are a research and development company based out of China and they were formed in 1996.

Originally they were designing and producing products for other tech companies but in 2002 branched out into producing products of their own, so while they might be relatively new to the west they have been established for quite a while now and are breaking into the western market with force.

Gaming mice are not their only area of expertise with the company producing other peripherals such as headsets and keyboards.

By now you probably would have seen a number of their other products around such as the Redragon Mammoth, Redragon Lavawolf and Redragon Perdition.

While the Redragon M601 is at the low end of the gaming mouse spectrum, the Redragon Perdition is most advanced mouse in their line so far and is comparable to the Logitech G600.

If Redragon keep producing their goods with the same quality and price they should be here to stay and are a welcome addition to the gaming market.

Redragon M601 CENTROPHORUS Performance

Polling Rate Like most gaming mice of any quality these days the Redragon Perdition comes equipped with a polling rate of 1000hz.

The polling rate of a mouse, in short, refers to how often the mouse sends signals to your computer. So how much polling rate do you need?

To put some perspective on this the average human response time is 215 milliseconds (or yours might be fast.

For interests sake you can test your reaction time here) With 1000hz, your mouse is sending signals every millisecond. Thats plenty of speed and response from your mouse.

DPI If you are not sure what DPI in a mouse it the short version is that it defines the speed & sensitivity of the mouse sensor or more simply put – the higher the DPI the faster your curser will move across the screen when the mouse is moved.

This will all come down to personal preference. Some people like the mouse to move faster across the screen while others more slower.

This preference again may also depend on the game you are playing. High DPI is not much use for sniping for instance.

So while some gaming mice come with DPI as high as 16400 such as M601’s big brother the Perdition, most of the time you wont need anywhere near that much to do what you need.

Another factor with DPI to keep in mind is your screen size & resolution. With a low resolution screen DPI is basically enhanced as you will need even lower DPI to move that little cursor across your screen.

The Redragon M601 comes with 2000 DPI. Obviously not close to the 16400 of the Perdition and is quite low even for a budget mouse.

Though to be fair even on the lowest DPI setting it still seems very fast. A recurring criticism from some purchasers was this fact and that if you are playing FPS it would be very hard to snipe or us small precise movements given the fast movement.

So 360 sweep movements are sometimes hard to do. Another criticism that popped up a bit was the sensor not working correctly and the cursor freaking out a bit on the screen.

This was probably the problem that was second most common among previous purchasers we found.

It would be nice to see a bit more, and actually in their upgraded model of this mouse, the M602, it does come with a little more DPI.

It is good to have options but given the price of this mouse you are going to have to hope that 2000 DPI is enough for your needs as there is no changing that.

Acceleration If you don’t know what accelerations is it, if you can imagine a point A and point B.

If you move your mouse from A to B, with no acceleration settings, your mouse will move at a constant speed irrespective of how fast you move your mouse.

Acceleration means if you move your mouse from A to B quickly your mouse will move further at a faster speed.

Most of the high end gaming mice these days come with 30g or more acceleration.

Im a big fan of options and even though you may or may not want this much acceleration, having the options in my opinion is a good thing.

Things can easily be adjusted with software.

The Redragon M601 comes with 15g of acceleration. This is great but the question you probably want to be asking is do I need acceleration?

The good news is if you do or you don’t you once again have the option here.

Redragon M601 CENTROPHORUS

Buttons

One of the first things we noticed once opening the box and trying this mouse is how low the middle mouse button is. It does not come up that much higher than the left and right mouse buttons.

It doesn’t quite impede using the actually button but it certainly noticeable compared to other mice such as the UtechSmart Venus.

6 Buttons is what you will get with the Redragon M601. 2 of these buttons, the ones on the side are programmable while you have your left and right click along with the dpi button in the middle behind the scroll wheel.

It is a bit funny but the two side buttons are textured different with the front one with a little circular bump texture and the back one just the plastic coating.

It feels a bit funny switching from one ot the other and we definitely prefer the textured one. You thumbe definitely grips and stays on that button a whole lot easier.

Also the back button seems to have a little less resistance than the front button so the front one takes a little more effort to click.

Probably the biggest negative about this mouse from other purchasers are that the mouse sometimes develops issues with the middle scroll button.

This was by far the most common issue or complaint customers had. Sometimes the scroll wheel gets filled with grime and doesn’t function well and other times the mechanics break, whatever the case it was the most common problem that developed on this mouse.

You can find mouse at this price with more buttons but with cheap gaming mice to find to be able to find a good marriage between price and quality. This mouse is certainly on the more dependable sided of the spectrum.

Profiles & Software

Unfortunately this mouse doesn’t come with any on-board profiles. It does however work straight out of the box, even on a Mac.

You can use the DPI button and have the ability to change that however to be able to program the two buttons on the side you will need to download the drivers which you can do here.

The Redragon M601 is touted as having programmable buttons and to some extent it does but you would need to be aware that the side buttons are not able to be mapped to a custom function.

Only simple functions like back, forward up down etc, can be bound to the side buttons you are not able to bind macros to these buttons.

Personalization

Colors There is basically no customizations available in terms of colours for this mouse. Admittedly the mouse does look very cool with the red lighting but if you don’t like red then you probably wont want this mouse.

Funnily enough this was another common criticism amongst buyers, the fact that the colours were not able to be changed and also that the brightness of the red colour was not able to be changed either.

Another thing that bothered a number of buyers was the fact that when you turn your computer off the Redragon M601 will keep its LEDs on. So you will still get the bright red light after your computer turns off.

So what about the DPI profiles , how do you know which setting you are on? Well, in the above picture with all the buttons you will see an arrow pointing to the little bit at the back between the left and right buttons.

That is a light which will indication which DPI profile you are on. There are 3 settings and therefore 3 light indicators. No light – Lowest DPI setting, Dim – Middle DPI setting and Bright- Highest DPI setting.

Unfortunately no options to change the colours, but this is a low budget mouse.

Redragon M601 CENTROPHORUS

Weight For a mouse of this price to have a weighting component option is an added bonus. The M601 comes with 8x 2.4g weights which you can use to adjust the weight to your liking.

These weights come packaged already inside the mouse so there is no extra packaging or weights container for storing any weights you want to take out. Even with all the weights inside it is not a heavy mouse.

It is also kind of difficult to get into, you really have to dig under the lid and pull the container out. A number of purchasers have had trouble with this weights system. It is not an easy one to use unfortunately.

System Requirements

The Redragon M601 requires a PC with a USB port. This mouse does not come with any CD but it does still come with a user manual and you can also download the drivers from the website here.

The mouse is supported by the usual operating systems such as Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP or later operating systems.

Can I use this mouse on a Mac? The answer is mainly no but also yes. The mouse is not designed to run on a Mac and the software/drivers will not work on a Mac.

It does have minimum functionality on a mac, but as mentioned above you won’t be able to program any buttons.

The default setting (if you were using this in a FPS or MMO) for the buttons on the side are forwards and back.

With high quality components, good specs and a whole lot of buttons it’s definitely worth consideration.


Who are Redragon?

The Redragon Perdition Gaming Mouse features 18 programmable buttons, works at up to 16400 DPI and comes with removable weights for your convenience.

For those of you that didn’t know and you may be forgiven if you are one of them, Redragon was originally a research and development company based out of China and formed in 1996.

While they developed for other companies and products they formally began releasing their own products in 2012, so are somewhat new to the scene of gaming software but come with a lot of experience.

Since 2012 they have released a few products for PCs including speakers, keyboards, and a few other mice including the Redragon Mammoth and Redragon® Lavawolf.

The Redragon Perdition is the most advanced mouse in their line so far comparable to the Logitech G600.

With a 12 button side keypad (which is strikingly similar to the G600 in looks) the Perdition is well worth a look for the gamer who needs a lot of buttons at instant disposal.

Redragon Perdition Performance

Polling Rate Like most gaming mice of any quality these days the Redragon Perdition comes equipped with a polling rate of 1000hz.

The polling rate of a mouse, in short, refers to how often the mouse sends signals to your computer.

So how much polling rate do you need? To put some perspective on this the average human response time is 215 milliseconds (or yours might be fast.

For interests sake you can test your reaction time here) With 1000hz, your mouse is sending signals every millisecond. Thats plenty of speed and response from your mouse.

DPI In short DPI defines the speed & sensitivity of the mouse sensor. For more detailed explanation have a read of this. Simply put the higher the DPI the faster your curser will move across the screen when the mouse is moved.

How fast you like your mouse to move will come down to personal preference in your gameplay. If you like your cursor to move quickly then you are going to want a higher DPI, if you prefer slower movements, then you would want something lower.

Another factor to consider with DPI is your screen size & resolution. Someone with one screen and a low resolution wont need a high DPI to get the mouse across the screen, however a dual screen user with high resolution on both screens will again require a much high DPI.

The Redragon Perdition gives you plenty of options, and perhaps more than you might need. With a whopping 16400DPI, even with higher screen resolutions and bigger screens you are going to have one sensitive mouse.

There wont be too many people that will use this on its highest setting however the good thing is you have options.

If you like your mouse super sensitive then you will certainly have the option with this mouse.

To give some perspective at 16400DPI it means 16400 pixels of movement on your screen per inch of movement of your mouse. One of the most common screen resolutions (not specifically for gaming) is 1366x768px.

The mouse can work up to a whopping 16400 DPI with ranges of 8200 4000, 2000 and 1000 and at 12000. Additionally you are able to change both the X and Y axis scrolling speeds and save in your profiles.

Acceleration Again like most decent gaming mice these days the Redragon Perdition features 30g acceleration. This is great but the question you probably want to be asking is do I need acceleration?

The good news is if you do or you don’t you once again have the option here. So what is acceleration?If you can imagine a point A and point B.

If you move your mouse from A to B, with no acceleration settings, your mouse will move at a constant speed however fast you move your mouse.

Acceleration means if you move your mouse from A to B quickly your mouse will move further with a faster movement.

For a detailed explanation of what 30g in a mouse actually means click here, but suffice to say you won’t need any more.

It’s a definitely not “one size fits all” when it comes to acceleration but either way your tastes can be satisfied with this mouse.

Redragon Perdition

Buttons

The Redragon Perdition has 18 programmable buttons. 12 of which you can clearly see on the side of the mouse. This puts this mouse in competition with the Logitech G600 and the Razer Naga.

Like the G600 the 12 mouse buttons on the side have sloped surfaces in order to better able to distinguish all the buttons from each other. Like the G600 some find this setup a bit hard at first but given a little time they end up finding it quite comfortable and convenient.

The Redragon features a red “power” button at the top left of the mouse where the index finger lays.

It’s a smart place to put a button and comes in useful but unfortunately this button is not programmable which is a real shame.

Perhaps in the future Redragon may fix this via their software but for now you will have to make do with it as just and extra button.

The mouse wheel does not tilt like some other mice but it does have an up and down button for your DPI rather than one button that you have to scroll through all your settings its a nice feature to be able to scrool up or down your DPI profiles.

Profiles & Software

The Redragon Perdition mouse can store 5 onboard profiles. What is a profile?

A profile is basically a whole bunch of your personal settings (such as DPI, Acceleration, Colors etc) saved for easy access. Its incredibly useful in many circumstances to be able to easily switch between profiles in game.

(For instance if you are playing 5 characters, or 5 races which have different spells or weapons etc). The button to switch the profiles is located on the base of the mouse. For reference the G600 can store 3 profiles so that’s a bonus for this mouse over the G600.

Customers of the Perdition have found the software fairly easy to use and setup with the ability to plug’n’play if you don’t need to make any customizations.

Its not the easiest or prettiest software interface around but you shouldn’t have too many stumbling blacks trying to make all your customizations.

Personalization

Colors The Redragon Perdition features many customizations to give you the best gaming experience possible.

As discussed above you can change the speed settings (DPI, Mouse acceleration, Mouse speed, double click speed and button mapping) to enable you to find the settings that best work for you.

As well as the aforementioned settings, you can also customize the colors and the weight of the mouse.

In regards to the colors you are given a choice of some preset colors and the choice to choose your own custom colors via the custom color picker.

You can also choose the brightness of the color on your mouse and a feature a lot of people think is pretty cool is the “breathing speed”.

The logo pulsates in brightness and you can choose the speed in which it pulsates. With the colour picker this is meant to give you up to 16 million colors.

When your choose your colors the logo and the backlights for the side buttons will change however the middle mouse button or scroll wheel has its own preset colors which are mapped to the DPI settings, so depending on which profile you have selected (and which color you have assigned to it) and which DPI setting you might find there are 2 different colors lighting up on your mouse.

Also the color mapping is not 100% accurate so what you choose on screen may not match exactly what is showing on the mouse. Weight Out of the box the Perdition weighs in at 150gms.

The great thing about it is that it comes with the option to add more weight via the 8 weights that are part of the package.

These 8 weights weigh 2.4 gms each so you can add an extra 19.2gms to the mouse. Its always good to have options and it certainly gives that extra level or customization.

System Requirements

The Redragon Perdition requires a PC with a USB port. In the case of this mouse, your package also comes with a CD and user manual and you can also download the drivers from the website here.

Can I use this mouse on a Mac? The answer is mainly no but also yes. The mouse and software are not designed to run on a Mac.

The software download will not work on a Mac. If for some reason however you HAVE to have this mouse some people have setup their profiles on a PC before shifting it to a Mac and had some degree of success that way.

I personally cannot vouch for that method and in my opinion it would be wiser to stick to a Mac compatible mouse.

Dimensions & Physical

The Redragon Perdition comes out of the box at 118m x 75m x 39m. If you compare that to the Razer Naga (119x75x43) & the Logitech G600 (118x75x41) it is very similar in terms of physical size.

The size of a mouse is always a personal thing. How comfortable a mouse is may depend on how big or small your hands are as well as which grip you use to drive your mouse.

Another nice wee feature about the Perdition is the texture. The mouse doesn’t have a glossy feel and rather has a textured surface which helps with keeping your grip and not having your hand slide around should you get a bit sweaty in those long gaming sessions.

The mouse comes with a fibre-braided cord which is 6 feet long. TEFLON feet pads ensure that the base of the mouse is durable and the mouse movement remains smooth on any surface, though Redragon have suggested that performance may be better on a lighter surface.

Warranty

Redragon offer an 12 month after sale warranty on purchases of the Perdition.

Consumer Reviews & Ratings

In general most people that have bought the Redragon perdition have been pretty satisfied with its feel and comfort.

Like any mouse the side buttons may take a little bit of getting used to but seems to become quite natural with a little bit of gameplay.

Much like the logitech there have been murmurs about the 10-11-12 buttons being a bit hard to reach for some people but with the right macros you may potentially not even need to use them.

Read what purchasers have to say about the Perdition.

Pros

18 programmable buttons

Easy to use software

Excellent customization options

High quality specs

Easy to use software

DPI ‘on the fly’ – switch up and down easily

Weight system

Ability to change up to 5 profiles in game

Cons

Colors of the mouse wheel and logo/buttons are not all synchronized

Mouse wheel can be a bit too tight against the casing plastic

Conclusion

5 profiles, great components, 18 programmable buttons, super high DPI, lots of customization options, weight package with a nice body a good looks its not a bad package.

There are a few things that can be ironed out in this mouse as noted in the cons section but overall a it’s a very solid buy at a very solid price.

What we found was a high quality mouse with loads of customizable features and a decent price. Read our ANKER High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse review to find out more..

Performance

Polling Rate

The ANKER High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse has a polling rate of 1000hz. Polling rate refers to how often the mouse sends information to the computer. With a polling rate of 1000hz this mean that signals are sent from the mouse to the computer every millisecond.

Generally for gaming you would want 500hz or more to ensure decent performance and no delay between your actions and the response in game.

To put some perspective on this the average human response time is 215ms, so with 1000hz you shouldn’t experience any delay in your game due to the mouse at all.

For interests sake you can test your reaction time here. 1000hz in a gaming mouse is pretty standard these days and you should find this level of performance in most gaming mice, not just the ANKER.

DPI

In short DPI defines the speed & sensitivity of the mouse sensor. For more detailed explanation have a read of this.

Simply put the higher the DPI the faster your curser will move across the screen when the mouse is moved.

How fast you like your mouse to move will come down to personal preference in your gameplay.

If you like your cursor to move quickly then you are going to want a higher DPI, if you prefer slower movements, then you would want something lower. Another factor to consider with DPI is your screen size & resolution.

Someone with one screen and a low resolution wont need a high DPI to get the mouse across the screen, however a dual screen user with high resolution on both screens will again require a much high DPI.

The good thing about the ANKER High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse is that it gives you options. It’s not called high precision for nothing.

How much DPI do you need? The ANKER has 8000DPI and should be more than enough for the average gamer. At 8000 your mouse is likely to be as hard to control as a bucking bull. 8200DPI means 8200 pixels of movement on your screen per inch of movement of your mouse.

One of the most common screen resolutions (not specifically for gaming) is 1366x768px. So when you do the math you have a pretty high setting.

Acceleration

Acceleration is much like how it sounds. If you can imagine a point A and point B. If you move your mouse from A to B, with no acceleration settings, your mouse will move at a constant speed however fast you move your mouse.

Acceleration means if you move your mouse from A to B quickly your mouse will move further with a faster movement. For a detailed explanation of what 30g in a mouse actually means click here, but suffice to say you won’t need any more.

The better question to be asking is do you wan’t to have it? Acceleration in a mouse is again a very contentious and personal preference. Some people hate it and some love it.

Having options is good and again this setting can be adjusted to your preference within the mouse software. You can play around with all the settings to get a setup you like and save those settings as a profile which will will look at later on.

Buttons

Anker High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse

The ANKER High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse features a DPI button under the mouse scrolling button (button no. 9).

This allows you to change your DPI settings in-game without having to go through the software allowing for more flexibility in game, which is what you look for in a mouse.

A small niggle is that its a button rather than a switch, , so if you overshoot you have to cycle through each saved DPI profile until you get the setting you originally wanted.

With 4 profiles though its not a lot of clicking and with a bit of use it should become second nature. To accompany this feature the mouse has 4 lights on the top left of the mouse which indications which profile you are currently using.

Profiles & Software

TheANKER High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse can store 2 onboard profiles.

What is a profile? A profile is basically a whole bunch of your personal settings (such as DPI, Acceleration, Colors etc) saved for easy access.

Its incredibly useful in many circumstances to be able to easily switch between profiles in game. (For instance if you are playing 2 characters, or 2 races which have different spells or weapons etc).

The button to switch the profiles is located on the base of the mouse. The settings you can change are

mouse point speed
mouse acceleration speed
mouse scroll speed
mouse double click speed
your button setup & customizations
DPI settings – including the X & Y axis
lighting – including the lighting color, breathing speed and brightness
polling rate

All of these settings can be tinkered with to get a setup you like and then stored as a profile of which you can switch between in game.

Expanding on your DPI profiles, there are 4 DPI settings that you can change for each profile.

You able able to tinker with the X-axis dpi settings as well as the Y-dpi settings and have 4 different setups for EACH profile.

So it gives you a hell of a lot of customization options in terms of how quick you want your curser moving.

Software Updates

As you have probably seen from the interface screens above the ANKER occasionally update their software. You can download those updates via the update page.

Personalization

Colors

The ANKER High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse features many customizations to give you the best gaming experience possible.

As discussed above you can change the speed settings (DPI, Mouse acceleration, Mouse speed, double click speed and button mapping) to enable you to find the settings that best work for you.

As well as the aforementioned settings, you can also customize the colors and the weight of the mouse. In regards to the colors you are given a choice of some preset colours and the choice to choose your own custom colors via the custom color picker.

You can also choose the brightness of the color on your mouse and a feature a lot of people think is pretty cool is the “breathing speed”. The logo pulsates in brightness and you can choose the speed in which it pulsates. All-in-all this is meant to give you up to 16 million lightings options.

Pick your custom color and the logo on the mouse will change accordingly. This is the only part of the mouse that will change color.

The mouse wheel and the DPI lights will remain blue which is a bit of a shame considering most of the time your palm will be covering the logo.

Also colors on the mouse may not exactly match what you have chosen in the software but for the most part its close enough.

Weight

With regards to weight the ANKER comes out of the box weighing 140gms. To add to its customization options it comes with 8 weights which can be inserted into the mouse.

The weights weigh 2.5gms each so you can add up to 20gms more weight to the mouse if you feel you need to. If you compare the weight of the Mouse to the Razer Naga (135gms) or Logitech G600 (130gms)

The ANKER is slightly heavier and with the extra weights you have more options. Again this will come down to your personal preference some people have found ever with all the weights the mouse is still too light.

As another comparison an Apple Magic Mouse weighs 200gms so that should give you a bit of an idea of weight. It may pay to try a few mice and check their weight if you are concerned about getting the right feel.

System Requirements


The ANKER High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse requires a PC with a USB port and runs on Windows XP/Vista/7 & 8. You will also need 20meg available for the software download.

In the case of this mouse, your package does not come packaged with a CD but rather a download from ANKERS website (here). Some people don’t like this however it enables them to keep the cost down and in my opinion it makes sense.

Can I use this mouse on a Mac?

The answer is mainly no but also yes. The mouse and software are not designed to run on a Mac.

The software download will not work on a Mac. If for some reason however you HAVE to have this mouse some people have setup their profiles on a PC before shifting it to a Mac and had some degree of success that way.

I personally cannot vouch for that method and in my opinion it would be wiser to stick to a Mac compatible mouse.

Dimensions

The ANKER High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse is considered by many to be quite a large mouse. Some people with small hands and a claw grip may potentially have some comfort issues.

The mouse measures 127x79x43mm. If you compare that to the Razer Naga (119x75x43) & the Logitech G600 (118x75x41) it does measure a little bit bigger. If you have major concerns about the size, again, I would find your own mouse specs and then compare and analyze what size is most likely going to work for you.

Consumer Reviews & Ratings

One of the reasons I wanted to review this mouse is because it had one of the highest approval ratings I had seen for a gaming mouse on Amazon.

At the time of this review this mouse had 70% 5 star reviews and 22.8% 4 star reviews and over 1000 ratings. Thats incredible feedback to get and is certainly noteworthy.

Customer Support/Warranty

ANKER offer a full 18 month warranty on all their products. One thing (other than a great mouse here) ANKER have going for them is their customer service.

They are very responsive with any issues and even proactive in cases on making sure the customers experience with their products is a good one, even if the product is not suited to them.

Good service is hard to find these days so we definitely have to give kudos to ANKER for having such good customer service. Good on them.

Pros

Customer Service

Value for money

Excellent customization options

High quality specs

Easy to use software

DPI ‘on the fly’

Weight system

Ability to change profiles in game

Cons

Weight is still too light for some even with all the weights

Mapping has to be to a keyboard key, not mouse button 1, mouse button 2 etc

Light customizations only changes the color of the logo

Only 2 profiles

Conclusion

The ANKER High Precision Laser Gaming mouse is an excellent product. If you are looking for the most options from a mouse there are others with more buttons and profiles but if you are looking for a really solid mouse the ANKER has many customization options that you would usually find with more expensive mice.

It looks good, plays well and for most people is a very ergonomic option. For the price it is, you would be hard pressed to find a better product. Check the current price here.


Keep an eye on what this company does next. With their good attitude towards customers most of few of the small niggles one would think would be ironed out and it’s going to be interesting to see what they come out with next.
