Final Thoughts

 

The M50 Pro Gaming mouse may be ambidextrous and make some potential customers look right past it for that reason alone. However, we strongly urge you to overcome your predisposed notions of these designs. Division Zero offers one of the best mice we have ever used. The heel is tall, but it lends well to intense gaming sessions where you are close to the desk, or even leaning forward in anticipation. Even without a defined design leaning to the right as many others would offer, with lots of use with this M50, the form never really came up, as it just feels good in the hand, and causes no discomfort.

 

 

This is a larger mouse, and that is something to consider, as accessing the side buttons does mean your hand rides a bit further up the mouse and does not bode well for lazy users who drag their palm on the mouse mat. Even so, the control is top of the line, and while many mice track very well when it comes to slight movements at higher DPI levels, we have not seen anything quite as precise as this M50 is.

 

The 47W-Control Pro Mouse Pad is also a great addition to the overall feel, but we did try other pads as well. We first got used to the M50 using only the 47W, and we were more than pleased with our accuracy editing and touching up photos, but gaming became more intuitive after a few hours of use. We found ourselves rarely overshooting the targeted movements, and with that, our accuracy also increased. What we found to be impressive, is that no matter how rough or how smooth he mouse pad was that we chose to use the M50 with, we never seemed to lose any of that accuracy or precision in its movement. This is something you rarely find with mice, as each design tends to like a certain style of texture, and do not tend to play this well across the gamut of options available to you.

 

Of course, you do have to slightly pay up to get a mouse this precise, but we still feel that the $80 price point is acceptable. We have played with many mice that were much more expensive, and while they may be more customizable, we cannot recall the last time we liked using a particular mouse this much. For this price, Division Zero stuck to the basics and can deliver something that you just love to use, no matter how it looks in the end. If you want to opt to get the 47-W Control Mouse Pad, at $19 we really cannot find fault with it. It stayed right in place all the time and did offers us a great experience while using it.

 

All in all, we find that Division Zero not only killed it with the X40 keyboard, but when it came to mice, they stepped up big and delivered what has to be one of our most accurate tested mice of all time.

The Bottom Line: The cost may shock you at first, but the M50 Pro gaming mouse is the most accurate mouse we have used in a long time. No jitter, no overshooting, just a well designed ambidextrous mouse that offers pinpoint accuracy, comfortable feel, and is a true joy to use.
