Excerpt: So, you’re a gamer on a budget. You want an inexpensive gaming mouse with adjustable precision levels and lots of programmable buttons. And worst of all, you might be left handed (check with your doctor for an official diagnosis). NZXT wants the Avatar S to be the gaming mouse you need.
Summary: Three years ago NZXT launched the original Avatar gaming mouse and we liked it. Six months later they improved upon the design and we liked it. Now they've released the next generation Avatar S and guess what? Yup, we like it.
Summary: Testing the NZXT Avatar S Laser gaming mouse is simple. First, connect it to your PC then go and download the software driver and install it. After that you set up the options to your liking. That's it you are ready to get your game on!
Pros: Aesthetically Pleasing, Choice Of Colors, 7 Foot USB Cable, Very Affordable, Gold Plated USB Connector
Summary: Final Thoughts
NZXT has come out with another gaming mouse and it does the job. If you are looking for a no-frills gaming-grade mouse that is just that a mouse then this is the perfect mouse for you.
Pros: – Simple nofrills mouse, – Ability to turn the LED’s off, – Adjustable DPI, – Available in white and black versions
Cons: – Other mice with more options available for the same price, – Low DPI settings, – The white version can get dirty easily, – Not that heavy for a gaming mouse
Conclusion: Why pick the Avatar S over the many other gaming mice? For starters it’s affordable. While high-end custom PCs get a fair amount of media attention, everyday gamers on a budget will appreciate the low cost of entry with the Avagar S. Second, the Avatar S looks damn good in both black and white.
Conclusion: This mouse is great, but there is an “IF”…which is this; IF you don’t mind a mouse that is straight and not shaped for right or left hand. It works great for gaming and normal daily computer usage and I have also found it to be good for people with bigger and smaller hands.
Conclusion: In all, we genuinely like NZXT’s Avatar. It performed well, it’s comfortable to use, it looks great, and it has all the features gamers look for in a mouse. Left handed users now have a real alternative to Razer’s left handed DeathAdder which is sure to please many south paw gamers.
Summary: The NZXT Avatar Gaming Mouse has a 2600 DPI Optical Sensor with up to 15G acceleration accuracy. The Max Speed is 40 Inches/Second, Max Frame Rate is 6469 Frames/Second, Resolution is 650-2600 DPI and the Image Processing is 5.8 Mega Pixels/Second. There are 7 programmable buttons.
