Revoltec FightMouse Pro

Conclusion

Conclusion
 
As the first product that Overclock3d have reviewed of Revoltec's, they have certainly made a good impression. The mouse was comfortable, had a nice weight, good tracking and reasonably pleasing aesthetics. The gaming performance was particularly impressive, showing the mouse truly deserves it's 'FightMouse' naming, providing a joyful and competitive experience in both our test games. However, this doesn't mean it is a perfect product and everyone should buy one - there are a number of small things to consider first.
 
First off there is the carbon fibre look, which is terribly unrealistic - I will eat my hat if it's real carbon fibre. There's also the cheap sounding click when pressing the various mouse buttons, which isn't the worst we've ever heard, but they're a long way from the best. Lastly, and probably the least important, is the very obvious straight translation in the manual, software and on Revoltec's website. It makes understanding the manual quite tricky at times, which lead to some confusion during setting up the mouse and testing.
 
Available from Ebuyer for £39.99 it's certainly one of the more expensive mice currently available, and whilst it's not outstanding value for money, it's certainly not bad. In summary. The Revoltec Fighmouse Pro isn't outstanding at anything, but is good at pretty much everything. Therefore, if you are looking for a safe purchase, it shouldn't disappoint providing you can get your head around the software.
 
 
The Good
+ On the fly DPI and Mode switching
+ Adjustable weights
+ Nicely sleeved and gold plated USB cable
+ Indicates which mode and DPI you are currently using
 
The Mediocre
* The software is confusing at first, but is very useful once understood
* Carbon fiber look could be far more realistic
 
The Bad
- Poor translation from German can lead to a tricky install
