Gigabyte Aivia M8600 Mouse Review


The mouse we have on hand today is a bit of a rarity in gaming circles, it's wireless.

Wireless tends to be frowned upon when it comes to gaming devices as the combination of interference, lag and the ever-important battery life mean that the vast majority of rodents that are designed for the gaming fraternity come wired.

Gigabyte are hoping to change all that with their newest mouse, the Aivia M8600. As well as being a sharply designed piece of hardware it comes in the most surprising packaging we've seen for a very long time indeed. 

But we're getting ahead of ourselves. Time for the specs.

Technical Specifications

As with many gaming mice around the sensor on the M8600 goes up to 5600dpi, although software interpolation can up that to 6500dpi. 150 Inches per second speed and 50g acceleration is also up there with the main gaming mice. 

Tracking systemTwin-eye Laser
Resolution100 ~ 6500dpi ( Hardware: up to 5600dpi)
Onboard memory32KB
Maximum acceleration50g
Maximum speed150 inches/ second
CertificateCE/ FCC/ BSMI/ NCC
Cable Length1.8m nylon braided / Gold-plated USB connector to mini USB
Dimension(L)134.3*(W)72.7*(H)42.7 mm
Weight148g with battery; 110g without battery
AccessoryCharging dock, Li-ion battery*2, USB to mini USB cable*2, Driver CD, Quick guide, Spare feet pad

But enough preamble, time to get cracking.

A very decent piece of kit. I really like the battery idea and the option of using it as a wired mouse.Quote

for wireless "gaming" mice i think you should try the logitech g700, i've had it for a little while now and i think its great (and more comfortable then most mice - which is not that common with wireless mice)Quote

Well in Australia it costs $99.

As a reference, the Razer Mamba 4G costs $159 here, while the Imperator costs $99 and the Steelseries Sensei costs $109.Quote

Looks pretty interesting. It still looks like it's modelling after a Lamborghini Reventon. Quote

Should be good, nice review thanks. I wont buy it though I will upgrade from the Gigabyte m8000 to the m8000X (both wired). Mine has a cilinder packaging like the one you picture and it holds the GIGABYTE mouse mat I'm using. Great quality mouse, I mean to send some ideas to GIGABYTE for improving it when time allows. The laser is very sharp, buttons very responsive and it's worked over 1 year and it hasn't given any trouble, looks nice. The M8000X has a better laser and software and a reader for the distance from the laser to the surface/mouse mat to calibrate the laser and for £40-£50 it's great. I prefer the M8000 to the Logitech G9. GIGABYTE are doing very good I think it's really niceQuote
