Revoltec FightMouse Advanced reviewRevoltec has a new range of gaming peripherals. I've already taken a look at their Gamepad Precision Advanced and Precision Pro mousepads and in this review, I'm taking a closer look at their FightMouse Advanced. This is a mouse designed for gamers, it features a cool design, a blue illuminated bottom, a DPI switch, and a set of weights to make the mouse heavier.
This is one of the first mice for gamers from Revoltec, this German brand is owned by a company called Listan which also makes the be quiet! power supplies.
The mouse ships in a cardboard box with a translucent plastic window so you can see how it looks and how big it is when you see the product in a shop.
Lets take a look at the specifications of this mouse:
The top of the mouse has a carbon look and it's actually pretty reflective like you will see in some of the pictures.
Resolution: 2000dpi (hardware), 2400 dpi (software) dpi modes: Level 1 (400-800 dpi) - Level 2 (800-1600 dpi) – Level 3 (1600-2400 dpi) – Level 4 (2000-2400 dpi) Image processing: 6.4 Megapixels/sec Max. acceleration: 20G Mouse weight: 100g Exchangeable accessory weights: 10g, 15g and 20g Connection: USB Cable length: 2 metres Sliders: Teflon Bottom illumination: Blue Lighting dpi switch: Off (Level 1) - Red (Level 2) -Purple (Level 3) - Blue (Level 4) Programmable buttons: 3 buttons (scroll wheel and side buttons) Laser sensor: Agilent ADNS-6010
The cable of the FightMouse Advanced is pretty long, 2 meters should be enough for most users. The only way to connect it to your computer is to a USB port, but that shouldn't really be a problem as most modern PCs have more than enough USB ports.
In the box I found a manual which explains how to install the mouse and software and how to use the software which you can find on the included CD.
A nice touch from Revoltec is the included bag for your mouse. It feels pretty soft and should offer good protection for your mouse when going to a LAN party.
The last item I found in the box where these three weights. You can use them to make your mouse a bit heavier, some people find this can improve performance in games. Revoltec included a 10g, 15g and 20g weight.
