GX Gaming Maurus X FPS/RTS Approved Gaming Mouse Review - Specifications, Availability and Pricing

GX Gaming Maurus X FPS/RTS Approved Gaming Mouse Review

GX Gaming sent in the Maurus X for testing, and let me just say on paper this optical mouse has everything most FPS gamers require, but is it enough?

Following the chart to start this off, there is a lot of information given, but it is a bit vague at times. Things start off with the part number at the top of the list, followed by the words metal, and yes. Since the mouse is mostly plastic with rubberized sides, I have to assume this addressed the accents applied to the top of the Maurus X. It shows compatibility with any Windows OS since XP, and gets the designation of an FPS/RTS mouse. The mouse is connected via full speed USB 2.0, offers the ability to house 40 Macros, and the Avago ADNS3090 optical sensor offers up to 4000DPI in 800DPI jumps. Other than showing that there is a UI for this mouse to program and set things, it shows the Maurus X has six buttons and a scroll wheel.

 

What you receive in the box is a smaller mouse, but aesthetically you are given a mouse that has defined lines, uses a mix of materials and textures to spice things up visually, and is definitely a mouse that helps keep your right hand in great control of your movements and commands. The sides of the mouse offer one button each, and both have a rubber section on them to give a much better grip in the heat of battle. On the top of the mouse, both the right and left click buttons are concave to snuggle your fingers atop the Maurus X.

 

Along with a scroll wheel and DPI button, there is also a scorpion logo and the GX Gaming name that is illuminated like the scroll wheel is, once powered on. Inside the mouse you will find the Avago sensor to track the movements, but there is a mix of Omron switches under the two main buttons, but the rest are packed with much smaller brown pad style switches. It is also packaged with an Atmel 8-bit MCU, and an NXP ARM Cortex 32-bit processor with 32KB of onboard storage. One last bonus I almost forgot to mention is that the Maurus is ambidextrous.

 

Going through the usual channels to locate the Maurus X, you won't see much other than news of the mouse via Google at the time of writing. I then jumped over to Newegg where I came up empty as well. So off to Amazon I went, and low and behold they have the GX Gaming Maurus X in stock right now. The currently listing is showing that this mouse can be had at $62, and even comes with free shipping currently.

 

While not the most affordable FPS/RTS mouse on the market, it is nowhere near the most expensive either.
