DOOM Eternal & Warzone
In our typical game genre, FPS titles, we were still able to utilize the Scimitar RGB Elite, not all of the buttons were programmed, but we did use six of the twelve on the side while leaving the rest of the mouse buttons to their default purposes. Not so much in DOOM Eternal, as it is our fast-twitch sensor accuracy test, which the Scimitar RGB Elite handled perfectly.
When we got into Warzone, spraying, explosives usage, calling out enemies, and a few other quick fixes that have us hunting the keyboard typically, but not any longer. Even with longer sessions, our hand was not tired, uncomfortable, nor did we have to change our hand positioning, due to the smart Key Slide implementation.
Since neither of those titles was geared for what the Scimitar RGB Elite was designed for, we did force ourselves to pay a few rounds of DOTA 2 to take advantage of the multitude of programmability. So on another of the three profiles, we loaded up much of what we wanted, but by the time we got used to the mouse and the layout we made, we got bored of the game and shut it down.
While MMO/MOBA titles are not our bag, we can still appreciate the Scimitar RGB Elite for its intended market, but as a user who is not a fan of these games, we still had loads of fun and cut a lot of our day shorter using them outside of gaming as well.
Windows and Productivity
As our daily driver, no matter how you want to set up the mouse, there is a learning curve for the mussel memory of your thumb, as you try to keep track of all twelve buttons. However, using the Scimitar RGB Elite for as long as we have, we found setting the mouse up for Photoshop to be the best use of it. You could use one button for a lower DPI just for editing images; you can set another to save, resize, well, you get the idea.
The same can be said for music or video production. With this many buttons at your disposal, your mind is the limiting factor. The glide of the mouse is smooth; tracking of the optical sensor is excellent. However, our usable spread of the DPI was from 800 to 7000 DPI, beyond that, while you can clear more considerable distances with less effort, stopping where you want and double-clicking a shortcut are another story.
As we saw in gaming, even with hour after hour of clicking little white dust particles in photo editing, every click is registered, every movement accounted for, and not once did the Scimitar RGB Elite give us any reason to want to remove it from the desktop.
