This is a gaming mouse through and through, don’t let its simple look fool you. It’s got RGB lighting only on the HyperX logo that sits on the hump but besides that, it has a gorgeous sleek black finish.

There are plastic grips on the sides along with two buttons on the left side for your thumb. While the mouse itself is shaped to be ambidextrous, the buttons on the side make it hard to use as a leftie.

Now onto how this mouse feels in your hand. This is one of the first mice that I’ve used that has made me fall in love with the moment I’ve gotten my hands on it. As soon as I started using it, it just felt absolutely perfect.

This is probably due to its shape which isn’t too over-the-top. It’s got a simple hump on the back with grooves that hold your fingers in place for the main buttons. Its size isn’t too big and at just 123g, the mouse just felt like a joy to use and play games with.

The buttons were responsive and had a click latency of around 180ms. The feet were smooth and had no issues gliding across a cloth mousepad. The NGenuity software also does what it advertises and allows you to set DPI, RGB colour and specific functions to the buttons.

Overall, this mouse is a great mouse for FPS gamers and for any other type of gaming. If you need a lot of buttons then this isn’t for you but otherwise, at the price point of Rs 3,100 this is a phenomenal mouse.
