QPAD DX80 Mouse Review

QPAD started many years ago producing mouse pads and has had an up and down time of it in recent years. They've gone from producing quality products at low prices, to ones with innovative features, to products which we shall charitably call less successful. Having been in the dark for a bit they were taken over by Darfon Electronics and have retooled the brand to aim it squarely at the e-sports market.
Given the insane popularity of eSports in the Far East it is a solid business plan, but one which requires some solid hardware to back it up. After all, the eSports crowd are nothing if not demanding in their requirements.
Enter the QPAD DX80. A gaming mouse based around the Pixart PWM 3325 sensor - last seen in the ASUS ROG Harrier GT300 - which has up to 8000 CPI, more than enough for all but the twitchiest of gamers, and the famous Omron switches found in just about every mouse on the planet. Couple that to a huge amount of RGB lighting and a software-less, ambidextrous design and there is much to like in terms of specifications. The proof of the pudding is in the eating as the old adage goes, so let's take a closer look at the DX80 before finding out how it performs.
