Gigabyte Aivia Krypton Mouse and Mousepad Review


We last looked at the Gigabyte Aivia nearly two years ago and found that it was an outstanding wireless mouse, overcoming most of the problems of wireless whilst being fully featured and having a great sensor. Pretty much the only thing we didn't like was the overly pointy design which meant it wasn't the most comfortable rodent for long gaming sessions.

Now the Aivia range has another model, the Krypton. A more standard wired mouse arrangement hides some clever design choices and marries well with the new Krypton mousepad.

Given that the gaming mouse marketplace is probably the stuffed fuller than any other, with mice from absolutely everyone and available to suit every pocket, has the Krypton got enough to stand proudly amongst the very best?

Technical Specifications

Mouse sensors have been moving towards the keyboard side recently. Nearly every mechanical keyboard utilises Cherry MX switches, which means that the fine details are where sales are won and lost. Mice are reaching that level too with only a few producers of extreme performance sensors leading to ever closer performance across all the high-end mice available. The Krypton comes with a Laser sensor, now de rigueur compared to their optical brethren, with a full 8200DPI instead of relying upon software interpolation. But as looks and feature sets are the separators now, let's move on and have a look at the Krypton.
