Feenix Vitesse Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Final Thoughts

 

All in all, the Vitesse is up to and ready for any task you may wish to use it for with your PC. It is designed to work with right-hand use only, which does discriminate against the left-hand users out there, but for those who do buy it, this mouse is very comfortable in hand. It is smaller in size and lends well to any grip style, and with the concave main buttons and side sections, along with the ergonomic lean to this mouse, it feels natural and leaves us being able to do anything we needed to with it, without fear of our hand sliding around on it.

 

However, at the same time, since the sides are made of textured plastic, when things get heated, we did find the grip starts to diminish slightly. We almost wish that the sides had been rubberized and the top had been made of textured plastic.

 

 

On the inside, this is almost a dead nuts comparison to the DM1 Pro from Dream Machines. While a few of the switches are in our opinion better in the Vitesse, opting for the Huano secondary switches, delivers a better feel to the buttons than what we found on the DM1 Pro. While not the longest lifespan of Omron switches used in this design, ten million clicks is still a long time off from the day you buy the Vitesse and is sufficient for many users. The Pixart/Avago sensor tracks every movement, no matter how fast or slow you are using this mouse, and the Holtek MCU is more than adequate for this Vitesse as well.

 

If we did have to pick on the Vitesse for anything at all, it would be the lack of LED light coming from the square on the left side and the fact that the cable may cause some issues for those who do not have their PC right next to the desk. Outside of that, the Vitesse is a solid product which is capable yet stylish, and more importantly comfortable no matter how long you plan to use it.

 

In our opinion, the Vitesse looks better, feels better, and does offer the extra DPI button, and those three things are worthy of the increase in price compared to the DM1 Pro we just saw. We like that this mouse is driverless, we also like the addition of the wire managing wrap included, as well as the extra set of feet. While the Vitesse may be slightly more expensive than other somewhat comparable designs, we feel that Feenix offers enough to warrant the pricing from any angle you wish to discuss.

 

For those out there who love basic designs with a bit of elegance and LED backlit logos, all based on an optical sensor, the Feenix Vitesse optical gaming mouse is well worth your attention, and at the price of just $59, it is difficult to pass on a product such as this.

The Bottom Line: The Vitesse may seem simple with the lack of software and customization, but it is a formidable optical mouse for any need. The use of top tier components in an ergonomic shell had us enjoying this Feenix mouse over similar products. And at this price, it is hard to go wrong.
