ASUS ROG Spatha Wireless Gaming Mouse Review
All of ASUS Republic Of Gamers products bring a level of expectation with them by virtue of having such a well respected logo on their packaging. It must have been tempting over the years for them to sell out and put the ROG logo on any old thing, but so far it has remained all about the premium, enthusiast grade products.
One such product it today's review item, the ASUS ROG Spatha Wireless Gaming Mouse. Usually mice are a trade off between various feature sets, or even between having the convenience of a wireless mouse and the responsiveness of a wired offering. The Spatha caters to everyone by being wireless, but also wired if you wish.
Boasting 12 programmable buttons, clutch and full RGB lighting all based upon a magnesium chassis, the Spatha even includes the ROG Switch swappable Omron switches we first saw on the Sica. Specifications are nice to read, but let's see how it performs.
The specs for the ROG Spatha reads like a what's what of possible mouse hardware. The Spatha supports both 2.4GHz wireless connectivity as well as an optional wired connection to squeeze those last few milliseconds out of the response time. Although even when using the wireless option you still get a 1ms response rate. Add to this an optical sensor with a whopping 8200DPI and the light, 175g, weight and it's everything you need from a high-end rodent. The Spatha is supplied with Omron switches that have a 60g actuation pressure and 20 million click lifespan, but ASUS also include 1 million click 75g Omron D2F-01F options should you like a firmer click to your main buttons.
