NZXT Avatar Review

Introduction

Recently we’ve seen a tumult of companies branching into the gaming mouse market, and so far they’ve all been relatively impressive. This time around, NZXT, popular maker of gaming cases, have made their own version of a gamer mouse. Called the Avatar, it’s got DPI switching buttons, LED indicator lights and teflon feet. All standard in a high end mouse, but how does the whole package stand up to the one’s we’ve previously reviewed? Let’s find out.

Features

  • Optimal performance — 2600 DPI Optical Sensor provides maximum sensitivity and responsiveness which yields unparalleled gaming accuracy. LED DPI indicator gives the user improved usage and feedback. 5.8 Mega Pixels/second with a max frame rate of 6469 ensures smooth fragging and accurate sniping. 4 Speed DPI switch enables you to go from slow sniper movement to quick attack movement in a matter of seconds
