I love a nice mouse. With so many choices out there in mice it’s hard to narrow down which mouse is best for you. We have reviewed a few over the years and recently got our geeky hands on what might be one of our favorites. UtechSmart sent us out the updated version of the Venus 16400 DPI Laser MMO mouse for review and I have been extremely happy with it. Once I tore into the packaging I plugged in the gold-plated USB connector and launched WoW.
I love the feel of the mouse. The shape is superb to almost every mouse I have ever used. I love the ring finger rest and makes for very comfortable gameplay. I launched the software to set the 19 programmable buttons and found the software very in-depth. You have about every choice you could think of all the way down to changing the colors with 16 million LED color options. After playing with the weight and balance tuning to get the Venus to just the right weight I was ready to play.
After about two weeks into the Venus I still loved everything about it. Clicks on the MMO keys are wonderful and clicky with LED’s you can change color or even turn off if you like. Laser precision on the Venus is wonderful. Check out some of the specs:
- Built with gamers in mind: up to 16400 DPI, 12000 FPS, 1000 Hz polling rate, 30G acceleration, 100-150in/s cursor speed, and an Avago sensor. Omron micro switches provide crisp, firm clicks.
- 18 programmable buttons, 5 Savable memory profiles each with a distinct light color for quick identification, an 8-piece weight tuning set (2.4g x8), and over 16 million LED color options. The LED may be disabled as per your preference.
- Durable smooth TEFLON feet pads and contour body for ultimate gaming control. High-end features including 18 buttons, power button, breathing light in 5 colors modes and 12 side buttons
- Ergonomic Right Handed Design with Rubber Painting Surface that can keep your grip firm during gameplay. 6ft braided-fiber cable with gold-plated USB connector ensures greater durability.
- Special Setting Switch Button on the back side of the mouse let you take command with maximum efficiency; 18-Month Manufacturer’s Warranty.
With all the features you can compare the Venus to any of the top mice out there. Here is the biggest difference and it still blows my mind…the UtechSmart Venus is only $38.99 on Amazon. With comparable mice out there in features and quality running over $100 this is a huge savings. UtechSmart did a great job on this mouse, software and hardware, and I love the price.
