A mouse with the power of the Gods on the inside and beauty of the Angels on the outside
Review by Rounak Roy
The world is now revolving around lightweight small mice but it is not always affordable and comfortable for the common people. The trend of trading ergonomics for a lighter design is not suitable for everybody.
This is where Ant Esports comes in as a savior, they have launched a new mouse at ₹1599 called the Ant Esports GM610. The GM610 is an ambidextrous mouse that supports most hand sizes and supports most grip styles. With a lightweight yet durable chassis the GM610 packs quite a punch in the internals. The weight is well balanced and shape is comfortable in the hand, add that with the paracord speed cable and PTFE feet, the mouse glides like butter.
DESIGN & SPECIFICATION
One of the first things that caught my eye was the Mirror finish on the top of the Mouse surface but wait there’s more. When you plug in the mouse you are greeted with a RGB wave that goes from the top to the bottom in rainbow colour. The colour was not overly blinding but was just the right amount. The mouse body is made of plastic weighing in at just 86g with anti-slip grips on either side. The top of the mouse houses the Right and Left Clicker with the Scroll/Middle Clicker. The left side has two buttons for forward and backward and the bottom has the buttons for DPI and polling. All of these buttons can be customised in the included software details of which will follow.
Inside the mouse is housed a 12800 DPI Sensor along with 10 million Clicks rated switch for each of the right, left and middle clickers. The scroll has well defined bumps and each movement is accurate and doesn’t overshoot.
The Full Specs are as follows:
SOFTWARE AND PERFORMANCE
One of the most notable things about Ant Esports is how they are quietly dominating the peripherals marketplace. When they initially started their software was not that great to speak of but as there is an old saying “Wine tastes best when it ages”, similarly Ant Esports’ software has come to a point where it can be said that their software is going to dominate the budget segment. Truth be told its better than the company that has a big G as its logo 😉. The mouse comes with 10 million rated switches and a 12800-dpi sensor which has 60ips tracking accuracy which is more than enough for most.
Coming to the interface of the software we see a welcome screen with the mouse image along with the button layout changing tabs. On the top are the sections where one can setup macros, change the led colour and rgb design, change the sensor dpi and button response times. Even some big companies miss out on these small settings like button response, custom macro’s etc.
FINAL THOUGHTS AND CONCLUSION
Now finally, does the Ant Esports GM610 make a good lasting impression at its price offering?
Well, I would say it does. It’s a pretty good mouse and having played some games like Apex Legends, Overwatch 2, PUBG Battlegrounds, COD Warzone. These sorts of games need just not the raw performance but also the comfort as well and as per my findings the GM610 excels in both departments. So, if you are a gamer who likes to play tons of games then the GM610 is a pretty good choice for you.
After using this mouse for over a week and using it in multiple games I can safely say that this is one of the best bang for the buck mouse I have tested till date. Be it the sensor or the smooth gliding or the precise clicks. We at Tech Reprise will rate this mouse a solid 9/10 for the performance and design and 10/10 for the competitive pricing.
