Ozone Xenon Gaming Mouse Review
Published: 20th February 2013 | Source: Ozone | Price: |
Gaming mice live and die on the quality of their sensor. Thanks to huge advances in the DPI available in the higher end models it's now possible to get a 3000DPI+ sensor on a mouse that costs about the same as a good Friday night out on the town. Anyone who remembers the CM Storm Xornet knows that you don't have to splurge out a lot of cash to get a great mouse, and with so many mice down this end of the spectrum the margins between success and failure are even finer. Whereas spending £50+ starts to get people buying upon brand name recognition or the latest super-accurate sensor, at the value end we don't care about the name on the box, but solely how great it is.
Ozone have produced a range of peripherals, more often than not at a good value price point too. Like any company there have been some great products and some not so great ones, so it's with interest that we take a look at the Xenon mouse. Does it have enough to beat off the stiff competition?
Some of the finest mice we've reviewed use an Avago sensor in them, so it's pleasing to see that the Xenon has one beating at the heart of it. Obviously at £25 we're not going to see some insane DPI sensitivity, but 3500 is plenty for most mortals. Otherwise there is little of note in the specifications, as is often the case with mice.
