QPAD DX-20 Optical Gaming Mouse Review - Design

First of all I would like to thank QPAD for sending me the mouse for review. After having reviewed a variety of other mice, I was intrigued to see how the QPAD line would compare to some of the best mice out there in the market, including my daily driver, the Logitech G303 and Logitech G502, which both house arguably the best sensor on the market, the Pixart PMW3366.

You can purchase the QPAD DX-20 at AmazonUK for £60 & OverclockersUK for the same price.

Full specs of the mouse can be found on QPAD’s website.

Here’s my video review of the mouse:

SteelSeries Rival 300 CS:GO Fade Edition Review - Faded

First of all I would like to thank Steelseries for sending me the mouse for review. After having reviewed other SteelSeries gear and other mice, I was intrigued to see how the Rival 300 would perform and how the Counter Strike Global Offensive (CS:GO) variant of the Rival 300 would look!
You can purchase the Rival 300 CS:GO fade mouse on AmazonUK for around £57 & AmazonUSA for $70. These prices are slightly higher than the non-branded and plain looking Rival 300 mice, which can be found on AmazonUK for £50 and AmazonUSA for $53 – you’re therefore paying a little extra for a skin…where have you heard that before…Counter Strike of course!

Full specs of the mouse can be found on SteelSeries’ website.

Here’s my video review of the mouse:

As a note: Parts of the review might be similar to my Rival 100 review – as a lot of features crossover.

Review of the Logitech G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse – Improved ergonomics over the Logitech G303

Pros: Accurate sensor, weight adjustment, ergonomics, customisable buttons, scroll wheel

Design & Looks: 10/10

Logitech G502 Mouse - Side view

After having reviewed the Logitech G303 mouse, which shares the same Pixart PMW 3366DM sensor as the G502, I thought to buy myself the more ergonomic G502 – I bought it for £35 (as it was on a deal on AmazonUK) – as prices fluctuate from £70 to £35, I thought to review it at the £55 price tag, which is a mid-point between the two.
The mouse can be found on AmazonUK for around £55 & AmazonUSA for around $55 (note the prices do heavily fluctuate) – as I am a UK based reviewer I will be reviewing it at the £55 price tag.

As a note: I didn’t receive this for review nor receive any promotional discount – I am reviewing it as a purchase as I thought it would be useful to readers to know the differences between the two mice. On top of that I bought the mouse as the ergonomics of the G502 looked better for my needs and hand size (17-19cm from middle finger to palm).

Logitech G303 Mouse - Box

First of all I would like to thank Logitech for sending me the mouse for review. The mouse can be found on AmazonUK for around £50 & AmazonUSA for around $50 – as I am a UK based reviewer I will be reviewing it at the £50 price tag.

After previously reviewing the SteelSeries Sensei [RAW], the Razer DeathAdder Chroma and even the Steelseries Sensei Wireless, I was interested to see how the Logitech G303 would compare and furthermore if it could dethrone my Anker mouse, which is my daily mouse, whereby the other mice weren’t able to dethrone it.

Here’s my video review of the mouse:

Purchase Date: November 2014
Purchase Price: £65

First of all I would like to thank Razer for sending me the mouse for review. After having reviewed an array of mice and hearing so much about the DeathAdder, I was keen to see how it performed.

Razer DeathAdder Chroma - Looks

In my video review, I had looked at the mouse at the £55 price tag (as that was the current pricing) – but since, the price has risen to £65 – and thus I’ll be reviewing it at the higher price tag.
You can purchase the mouse on AmazonUK for around £65 & AmazonUSA for around $60, which is around £20 more than the original 2013 DeathAdder – the older version can also be found on AmazonUSA for $58

Here’s my video review of the DeathAdder Chroma:

Sensei Wireless - Charging on bay

First of all I would like to thank Steelseries for sending me the mouse for review. After having reviewed the Steelseries Sensei [RAW] Heat Orange, I was intrigued to see how the Sensei Wireless compares, both in terms of performance and value for money.
You can purchase the mouse on AmazonUK for around £120 & AmazonUSA for $120, which is more than double the list price of the non-wireless version.
