This Gaming Mouse Is AWESOME – ROG Chakram Review

by birtanpublished on November 28, 2020

Good people I'm three tree and right now all the craze is about lightweight FPS mice but let's not forget about the heavy weight options that still matter and have exactly that the ROG chakra Eber to make sure I pronounce the name properly Eva sent me recording on how to pronounce the name correctly thanks buddy this mouse is absolutely loaded with features and after using it for about a week it is an easy recommendation it has a perfect place on the market in 2020 and it's actually a really good

Alternative to the razor and launch tech options because of the joystick and because of the hotspot pull switches pretty cool so the first thing I want to get off my chest is this conversation about the weight and I feel like it's actually an advantage for a brands that release heavy weight mice because the light weight section is getting is so saturated that anything that's like the heavy stands out and even though the chakram is slightly heavier versus the g5 or to Lightspeed Wireless and the razor basilisk ultimate it still keeps a distance from the really chunky

Productivity mice like the MX master 2s and price-wise it is also slightly more versus the g5 it to wireless and the razer basilisk ultimate but I still think it's fairly competitive and the gram scheme of best wireless options available the included accessories are absolutely loaded you get a pouch a sticker USBC cable compartment with extra switches and joystick heads and this transparent custom badge that replaces the default RGB logo I guess you can draw on this or maybe put a sticker on it but instructions unclear I really like the see-through top surface

For extra diffusion of all that beautiful even lighting especially right below the front triggers and I think this texture will fare well over time the type-c connector is unrestricted at the front and as far as I'm aware this is the first mouse that has an equivalent of fast charging where you can charge 12 hours of battery in just 15 minutes over a USB 3 connection now total run time is rated at 79 hours which is awesome and the mouse obviously goes to sleep when an idol to save on battery life so this is minimum a full week usage wireless mouse over 2.4

Gigahertz USB dongle that by the way tucks inside the body for safe travels the mouse also has Qi charging which is awesome if you have one available on your desk charge the mouse that way without needing to plug it in and it also has bluetooth connectivity which is probably why the mouse is slightly heavier versus the competition as for the shape it is a large Mouse that very comfortable to grip and it has enough length for massive hands too as you can see I'm mainly gripping the back with my fingertip style claw and full palm grip should satisfy too but I still

Prefer the slightly slimmer basilisk shape over the ROG the textured sides are also not as grippy as on Razer but I've had no issues with control and the mouse stays locked in my grip my only complaint with the button layout is the placement of that joystick as it's too far forward for my thumb and I need to basically readjust my entire group to reach it as for functionality of the joystick you can program into full 360-degree analog movement or digital movement which is quite unique for Mouse but I just couldn't bring myself to use this joystick even for third person

Games because it's bit unnatural and also the fact that it's too far away from my thumb so it's not an exactly comfortable place for me to utilize the thumb and the joystick it also only works through Steam once you set up the controller configuration so that's fine anything that launches through Steam the joystick is recognized for the analog controls but if I launch and to read that redemption – through the other launcher it doesn't work by the way the joystick is also fully removable and can be extended with a slightly longer stem and something else important to mention

Is that the joystick is disabled in Bluetooth mode so what I find more interesting as a feature on this mouse are these small arm run switches you simply remove the primary triggers which are magnetic you pull out the switch and replace with whatever you have available the blue ones have the sharper and more tactile actuation versus more travel and softer feeling beige switches you can also mix and match and even install your own armor and switches and I'm not sure how you feel about this but this might be the next cool thing for gaming mice like the next level of customization

From I is just like we have with keyboards oh no see it is a standard pin plunger designed so different micro switches will work and I've tested some of the switches that actually got from Imran in Japan no issues here just make sure the pin layout matches to the default micro switches that are included with the mouse and not something like this that you can find an Amazon that looks similar but we would not fit and so finally let's talk about gaming as the sensor is top-of-the-line up to 16,000 dpi and I found it actually quite pleasant in

Games like EFT where character movement has wait so you turn speed and walking speed are all affected by the gear you wear and despite the 120 gram body I had good control with finding targets and aim correction but jumping into this workshop map and csgo it was quite challenging as you keep flicking the mouse across the screen so my aim wasn't bad but my wrist was not used to something this heavy for FPS I still go back to the very light mm 711 for that exact reason but the chakram is still a fantastic performer and I even played at my usual dpi of 800 without any issues

Now where the stability and added weight might be advantageous are all the adventure games and strategy games where a feather light might simply have no benefit and this means that a soos is still catering to those who prefer the larger mouse format with the extra weight and a really loaded feature set I have nothing special to say about the driver software except we only have three profiles with all the usual button mapping and lighting options plus to lift off distance adjustments and Jois the configuration that doesn't really reflect in-game movement anyway the

Joystick here is the most disappointing part because it's only recognized through Steam and it's way too far forward for my thumb therefore I can't comfortably grip the mouse and use the joystick properly perhaps if it was right below the browser buttons I would have more luck and I see this mouse as something that encourages innovation that will hopefully observe in future releases and I'm quite surprised that a soos was able to deliver a mouse that competes with the likes of Razer and Logitech which are establish players in the space but let
