AZIO EXO 1 Optical Gaming Mouse Review (Page 3)

AZIO EXO 1 Optical Gaming Mouse


As we look at the left side of the EXO 1, we find the lower section is indeed black, it offers two buttons in easy reach, and the entire side also offers a mesh pattern in the rubberized coating to give some added grip.


They may call this black, but just like we saw from the side, the metallic coating sealed onto the top has a definite blue hue to it. In the heel, we find the AZIO logo which will light up later, and we see that the lower back section makes very small wings to help keep your fingers and thumb off the mouse pad.


The right side of the mouse has roughly the same indent and shape as the left side offers, and from back to front, we get the mesh grid of grip that we saw on the left as well.


The front of the mouse is sloped from the center as the high point, down to the edges, as well as sloping towards the front. There are no indents to help keep fingers on top, but we do see the black has moved up between the blue buttons for a bit of contrast on top too.


That separation between the right and left click buttons is made to offer room for the clear centered, rubber ringed, segmented scroll wheel, along with the DPI selector switch and LED indicator light.


Flipping the EXO 1 onto its back, we can see what is going on underneath. There is a thin front foot that rounds the top edge, and a slightly wider on that rounds the bottom to glide upon. Along with the product sticker and serial number at the top, centered in the bottom is the eye for the optical sensor.


From a thick grommet in the front of the mouse, this black braided cable emanates. There is six foot of it in total, and the connection is oddly shaped to make it easy to find, yet also ships with a protective cover for the USB connection.

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.
