UtechSmart Venus Gaming Mouse, 16400DPI High Precision Laser RGB MMO Gaming Mouse
This is going to sound really lazy to some (haha!), but I’ve been looking for a gaming mouse that would allow me to simplify the effort of having to troll through various menus / inventory systems in games, so that I can access the items and/or functions I need (i.e reload weapon, crouch, prone, first aid kits, energy drinks, spells and so on), more efficiently and most importantly, quicker ! Was looking through various mice and came across this from Utech, priced, currently at £29.99 on Amazon UK – the question is though, is it any good ? Click read more below to find out….
The Utech Gaming mouse arrived in a well presented box and contains the following items: The gaming mouse itself (obviously), instruction manual in various languages (also available on Utech’s website), extra / replacement mouse pads for the base and a weight tuning set that slots into the base of the mouse to make it a little lighter or heavier.
With the boring stuff out of the way, lets get to the best bits about this gaming mouse and why you should buy one:
Exceptional build quality & Overall comfort in the hand.
The ergonomics of the mouse really stand out, quite fierce and sporty looking, with its finely shaped ridges and contours but nothing too over the top or silly looking. The mouse has a frosted texture to it, which provides excellent grip and less free movement when its in your hand, again nothing intense, and works really well in keeping the mouse locked into the shape of your hands at all times – a great thing when playing intense shooting games, you dont want the mouse slipping away from your hands grip in the heat of the battle. The ”ring” finger rest on this mouse really is great too and adds that extra comfort factor.
The mouse feels of high quality. When passing it around co-workers in work they were very impressed at how solid it felt and thought I had paid a much more premium price for it than I did.
You can set almost everything on this mouse, DPi levels (supports up to 16400 DPi), the two arrow buttons on the top of the mouse allow you (from straight out the box) set the mouse DPi sensitivity at the click on one button (up arrow increases DPi, down arrow reduces it, all in real time on the fly). The sensitivity of the scroll wheel can be configured too and loads more !
So what else is there?
x5 customisable profiles – Allows you to setup individual mouse profiles and save x5 of them in total. Have a mouse setup with different hotkeys and macros for World of Warcraft and have another saved for other games like PUBG, Starcraft, LoL and so on. These profiles can be switched at the press of a button as well on the base of the mouse, which makes switching into different saved mouse profiles for each game a breeze and saves so much time !
x18 total programmable buttons to customise however YOU want. For gaming, assign different spells / healing items to each button, have your first aid kits, reload button literally at your finger tips for easy access, the possibilities are endless and it makes gaming (especially online) a joy. No need to troll through cluttered inventory screens, just assign your weapon, magic, health kits to any button and they are accessible immediately in game.
You can set macros on the mouse, and this isn’t just limited to gaming, you can set macros for games or any other application including mouse and keyboard combos !
The colour options of the mouse can be set, with plenty of variation, 16M colours in total. The mouse will stay one colour, I don’t think its RGB like some others, but the colours are bright. The brightness levels can also be adjusted to suit your needs and there is also a light breathing function with various speeds to choose from.
Having come from using a Razr mouse, I’m really impressed with this mouse overall. I’ve been using it for various games and apps, image editing software and online games like PUBG, Battlefield V and loads more and it really does connect the link between the keyboard and mouse. With its sleek design and almost unlimited command functions it really is something special. I’d recommend this mouse to anyone.
If your on the fence, honestly, buy one and see for yourself, you won’t be dissapointed.
