Sharkoon DarkGlider Laser Gaming Mouse Review

We've seen some cases, but the DarkGlider programmable laser gaming mouse is the first Sharkoon peripheral to come our way.

I guess I hadn't paid all that much attention to Sharkoon's website back when I had a look at the Rebel9 and the Nightfall cases. To be honest, until I got the emails about this sample, I wasn't really aware they were in the peripherals game as well. This time around I was sure to take more time and found out that they do sell a whole lot more than just cases. They list everything from cables and card readers, through flash memory and power supplies and headsets and peripherals. They really do have quite the product lineup. I may need to look at Sharkoon a little more often, they cover quite a bit for me to have a look at and with Sharkoon as a company, we are in the baby step stages, since this is only my third product I have seen, but I hope to bring you more of their products as time goes by.


Back to the review at hand, this is my first look into the peripherals section of their lineup as I bring you this mouse. It is a laser mouse with tons of features, as seems to be the trend, Macros, switching the functions to things in almost any program; you can even make mouse button multimedia keys if you want. It also contains all of the usual suspects for a gaming mouse with a laser sensor (it has the Avago sensor), it has a weighting system, it has optional LED backlighting and it even has an LED display for the current DPI. It really does seem to cover what most gamers or even someone who can appreciate shortcuts to save time desire in a mouse.


As we get to seeing just how well this new mouse from Sharkoon stands up against the competition and as I introduce you to the DarkGlider laser gaming mouse, it seems like they have a pretty full feature set and to be honest, I just barely got started with that list. There is a lot more to cover and discuss as I take you through the DarkGlider, both inside and out, into the powered up looks, through the software and accessories, you are soon going to realize this is a very well appointed contender, even more so once we get into the pricing of this larger solution for those with medium to large hands.


That in mind, I say we get right to it, shall we?
