FinalMouse - Professional eSports Mouse
Design and Usage

Features and Performance (continued):

Just below the mouse the wheel, there is a DPI button that when pressed changes between four different DPIs, 400, 800, 1600, 3200. The only downside to this button is that it can only cycle in one direction, meaning that if the button is pressed accidentally, it would have to be pressed another three times in order to return to the desired setting. The combination of all these features really makes the FinalMouse easy to adjust to and with only four DPI settings, in game mouse sensitivity is the only thing that needs to be adjusted.

Design:

The ergonomic design, along with the clean and professional shape of the body, really make the mouse look very sleek and the very light weight of the mouse adds to its performance. The LEDs lights - one for the logo and one for the mouse wheel - really add to the look of the mouse however the mouse wheel LED burnt out after about 2 days of use which is a bit disappointing. Though the mouse does look impressive with a very comfortable fit and feel, part of body feels little weak and there looks to be a little bit of a production/mold flaw on the top right side of the body. The weak part of the mouse comes from the left underside (left of the sensor) that when pressed, has a little give to it. When pressing the spot on the underside, a subtle and soft noise of something popping in and out of place is made which gives it a feel as if maybe a glue spot or securing point was missed.

On the top right side of the body, just under the right side button, there is a small bump of excess plastic. From my guess this bump is the result of a production/mold flaw for the specific piece, however depending on which way a finger slides over the bump it could become irritating or bothersome. 

[Editors Note] FinalMouse shipped us a replacement and we never experienced the same LED issue, bottom flex, or bump issue. They stated that some early samples did have production quality issues that have since been fixed.

 

Final Thoughts:

As we look over the FinalMouse again, the return to simple drivers and no bloated software is quite refreshing. This approach greatly improves the performance of click registration. The clean and professional ergonomic design really gives the mouse a comfortable glove-like feel and the minimal amount of buttons really keeps things simple. The shorter length of the mouse, compared to that of Logitech G-series really makes a big different of how the mouse fits into the palm of a hand. The performance over all exceeds that of a G500s and in combination with the light weight, it really makes this mouse easy to adjust to. Though there are some flaws and problems in our first review sample, they do not impact performance, (again, the replacement didn't have any of the aforementioned issues). For such a "basic" mouse, the $70 seems a bit steep. With that being said, the FinalMouse out performs the Logitech G500s and looks to be a great go to mouse for gaming.
