DOOM & PUBG

With as little time as we have had with the M55 RGB PRO, we only got a few rounds of each game in for testing. That being said, there were no glaring issues that we experienced in either title. We were able to raise the DPI to 3000 DPI and have fluid motion without any issue, and for us seemed to be the sweet spot for not only slinging lots of bullets in DOOM, but also was still accurate enough to be able to pull off an AWM shot to the face in PUBG.

The range of DPI is enough to satisfy anyone, but past 4500 DPI the mouse is way too fast for us to enjoy, let along get anywhere near that 12,400 DPI maximum. The glide is smooth, and with the weight so light, movement is near effortless as this smaller ambidextrous design fits comfortably in our hand.

Windows and Productivity

Again, DPI is the huge make or break moment when it comes to the daily grind. We edit a ton of images, and this is where accuracy is a big feature we must have. Zooming around a 4K monitor with any of the DPI options is easy enough, but again, once over 6000 DPI, we were running into issues overshooting things and running into not being able to double-click an icon, as pressing the left button would have enough force for the sensor to read movement.

We moved back down to 3000 DPI and all of the aforementioned issues were gone. As for the comfort levels, it is a nice fit in the hand, but is a tad small for us to use for the long term. With the feature set offered, and limitations like a single onboard profile and the ambidextrous shape not being our jam, we would relegate the M55 RGB PRO to laptop duty, where it can get the job done well, and with less use, be perfect due to its compact size, lightweight, and easy of wire tending for uncluttered travel with it.
