Precision is never something I thought about when considering the peripherals I use for my computer when gaming. It wasn't something I thought about five years ago when I got my first gaming PC and until just recently, I never cared much for the DPI of a mouse or its performance when gaming. My tune changed rather quickly after GearBest sent me a Luom G10 gaming mouse. Luom's G10 isn't an expensive mouse, which surprised me when I saw just how much this mouse can be configured and tailored to the individual. It's just short of being fully modular in terms of customization; it performs exceedingly well for every purpose I've used it for, and I feel that it's an absolute steal for its price.
Going back to precision and how it relates to the G10, the mouse has four default settings for sensitivity that can be cycled through by clicking the middle mouse button protruding from the opening. The different presets can be changed according to user preference in the G10 software that comes on the driver software disc. The mouse allows for all ten mouse buttons to be bound to whatever is needed, including keyboard keys, macros, and functions exclusive to the mouse like DPI loop and LED toggle.
Being able to customize the mouse LED is a neat feature for those looking to match with the rest of their setup, but the G10 just looks good as it is. I'll admit that when I first saw the design of the mouse, I thought its appearance was silly and I couldn't see myself using it. The G10's design grew on me pretty quickly, but more than anything, the actual feel of using the mouse for everything from browsing to competitive gaming is what made me really appreciate the G10. It fits naturally in the palm of my hand and on my mouse pad.
In terms of performance, this mouse is leagues above any other mouse I've used. I may be used to the stock mouse you'd get from a new PC, but if anything, the G10 has shown me how much of a difference a mouse can make whether it's used just for browsing or for intense competitive multiplayer games. It's even precise enough to work down to the pixel in photo editing software, which I would sometimes struggle with while using a stock mouse. Everything about the G10 just feels intuitive and natural and it took me just a couple of hours to acclimate myself and my movements to a brand new mouse.
The weight of the G10 is much heavier than a stock mouse, but it's definitely not too heavy and it gives off the vibe that it's just built well overall. The cord is a decent size that should fit most people's needs, and the cord is nicely wrapped in a nylon braid that has yet to tangle on me. The surface of the G10 and the buttons are smooth and the materials used clearly show that Luom took human wear-and-tear into account, as the mouse still looks like it's fresh out of the box and seems as though it will continue to look and feel this way for a long time to come.
There were very few downsides I saw while using the G10. The first one came when I first started using it and the scroll wheel would sometimes get stuck and resist force. It wasn't a real impediment to using it so much as it was just an annoyance, but the problem resolved itself shortly after and I haven't had difficulty with it since.
Luom's G10 gaming mouse is a competent and intuitive piece of gear that casual PC users and competitive PC gamers alike would benefit by having it. Straight out of the box, the mouse looks and feels great to use, but the level of customization and configuration offered in its software is what blew me away. It can be changed to fit a huge variety of needs for any PC user, from general Internet browsing to intensive photo or video editing and, of course, fast-paced competitive gaming. At its very modest price, there's really no reason I can provide as to why one shouldn't at least look into the Luom G10 or try it out for themselves.
Overall, it's a great mouse that aimed to appeal to PC gamers on a budget and it achieved just that and so much more. Thanks again to GearBest for sending the G10 my way!
