AZiO Levetron CM-2000 Gaming Mouse Review (Page 6)

Final Thoughts

It has been a very long time since I have had a mouse that was truly plug-and-play, and I have to be honest, I really like it. No extra software shortcuts on the desk, nothing to worry about at all. All you do is plug in the GM-2000, wait for the OS to auto detect it, and enjoy using it. Even being a more economical choice, and while it may not offer the top of the line innards, the Levetron GM-2000 works just as well as some of the ones that do. The mouse is a tad small for me to use long term, but the time I did spend with it was comfortable in the hand, and glided very well on the various mouse pads I tested on. In my time using the GM-2000, I really couldn't sense anything that would make me not want to use this if it fit my hand a little better.

I will be honest, at first I was about to write off the GM-2000 as a low dollar, budget entry to mice, that really wasn't something I would end up liking so much. Using the mouse, having the ability for DPI on-the-fly adjustments, having a page back button which is a must for me only made me like this even more. Normally this is where I would say there is some amazing software to accompany this mouse, but that's just it, the GM-2000 works perfectly and does exactly as it is intended to do right out of the box without having to worry about LOD and polling rates and such. With the Levetron GM-2000, you get a mouse that is ready to go and as hassle free as possible, so that users can just enjoy the mouse for what it is, not for what the software brings to the table.

Considering the Levetron GM-2000 is definitely one of the most economically friendly solutions I have tested in quite some time, my thoughts of this mouse lacking in any way are really unjustified. The only real issue I have with this mouse, at any price, is that the cord is only five foot long and may make for some interesting routing to keep the wire out of the way for some setups. With a price of $29.99 there is no way that I cannot recommend the Levetron GM-2000. I don't care if you are a gaming professional or just an average gamer at home, this mouse has what it takes to be competitive in the peripherals game, and the price will just leave a smile on your face as you walk out of the store with your new mouse.

AZiO really turned my assumptions on their ear and delivered an optical gaming mouse that is well worth anyone's attention.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
