Redrogon Lavawolf, does it live up to the hype?
Today I am going to review what I been told is the best budget mouse on the market today. Everyday a new piece of hardware gaming kit is being realised to varying levels of quality. The problem is so may in the budget category simply don’t cut the mustard with the level of gaming that is required with the high level games of the modern video gaming world.
The problem with the budget PC gamer who is looking for the best mouse around for their price range can prove difficult.
As a seasoned PC Gamer I would constantly be let down by hardware brining out products that would let me down within the first marathon session of the latest game I was beating. The frustration usually leading me to see how far I could throw the mouse at the wall and see if it could last the journey.
When a new mouse comes onto the market and my fellow gamers tell me its excellent and the price range is good I decide to give it a test drive and a review, this one certainly had some hype.
First of all the look of the dam this it amazing, it looks fast high tech and with the features it doesn’t disappoint.
The mouse I am reviewing today is the Redrogon Lawawolf is one of the flashiest gaming mouse on the planet but I got one for a mere $16 and it didn’t let me down.
The company behind this flash piece of kit is RedragonUSA and these guys have been designing and producing high quality gaming hardware since 1996 and they are serious about their customer satisfaction.
The Key Features
Adustable weight system.
The mouse has adjustable weight system which for me is a not only a cool feature but is also one of the must haves for the serious gamer. Let me explain why to the novice PC gamer.
Every game is different so you will need make different adjustments according with your hand movements. A first person shooting game is different to a game where you need the more speed therefore a lighter mouse would be more suited to a game where you need to get across the screen.
Also, there is personal performance, how you as a player like to move your mouse and this one gives you an option. If you don’t want to change the weight you can keep it’s how it is and not mess with it.
This is where I started to be in love with the Redragon, the number of buttons.
First off it has seven programmable buttons, two of them are for thumb control giving you much easier control for any game in the market. You can also save 5 of these profiles to a specific game.
There is a scroll wheel button which has excellent, you can program the DPI sensory action to a specific task for any game and of course the two main buttons either side.
This basically is allowing you to track every movement with precision which is done with a top speed Avago sensor. Not bad for something I picked up for this price.
This really is a decent piece of software done by these guys, it shows that even at the cheaper side of the market you can get good software specifically for one mouse, so I give them loads of credit for this.
The software by RedragonUSA also includes which allows you to change the setting of the mouse itself, also you can set up the different macros as well.
There is an option to go to their website if your mouse didn’t come with the software and this is quite easy to do with the step by step instructions guide.
This is an optional feature and I can imagine most budget gamers are just buying it for the extra buttons but to truly get the most out of this then you really download this and watch the performance be enhanced.
What is great about this piece of kit is that everything can be customised, even the colours of the mouse itself. This really is a good solid mouse and for the price I doubt you can get anything better on the market.
So lets put into a brief Pros and Cons
• Great Software and easy to install
• Fast Performance for price and a max of 3500
• Nice design and comfortable for game play
• Fantastic level of customization for the budget
• Price is amazing
• Maybe not as well designed as its rival Razor Deathadder
• Some of the bottoms are easily clickable in mid game
• The look may put people off, as it does look a little to flash
These guys have been making gaming hardware for a long time and are probably the best for budget mouse. I don’t think anything can really compete in this price range. I think even if it was designed for the novice PC gamer I still think it is good value for the season gamer like myself.
Even if you compare the more expensive mouse have more features for this price I don’t think anyone would complain this is a great bit of kit, and even looks flash as well.
