Tt eSPORTS Ventus R Optical Gaming Mouse Review

DOOM & OVERWATCH

 

When it comes to FPS titles such as DOOM and OVERWATCH, the Ventus R has just enough built-in to get you by. Weapons switching is easily done with the heavy scroll wheel, and you do have a pair of buttons on the side to help address things like grenade tossing or setting one of them for a profile switch, so you do not have to go into the software every time you change game titles. Typically, we tend to game at around 5000 DPI, no matter if it is an optical or laser sensor, but with the Ventus R, we found that 5000 DPI was a bit too fast for what we are used to.

 

 

We found our sweet spot to be in the range of 3800 to 4200 DPI, depending on the map size and how quickly we needed to be able to do an about face. The glide is smooth on any surface we tried the Ventus R on, but the reality is, we do wish there were a couple of buttons on the top of the mouse, and if you are going to advertise it as an ambidextrous product, you should have buttons on the right side as well.

 

 

Windows and Productivity

 

For scrolling around on web pages, the Ventus R is all you need. When it comes to image editing, we found that there appears to be no angle snapping or any software tricks to adjust things for you behind the scenes, which is important to not only gamers but those who need to move in fine detail on any aspect of PC life.

 

Our only issue with the long term use of the Ventus R is that it is small for our hand size, and is too light, for our liking. Outside of that, when it comes to the day to day grind of PC life, the Ventus R will get you through just about anything you will need it to do.
