Since opening its doors in 1989, the Taiwanese technology manufacturer ASUS has gone from strength to strength. From humble beginnings as a simple motherboard manufacturer they, like other Taiwan giants, have evolved to meet the demands of the ever growing IT industry.
Recently we have taken a look at a few ASUS peripherals but under the more mainstream Strix moniker. Today however I’ve got my hands (literally) on a full fat ROG peripheral, the ROG Gladius gaming mouse. The Gladius packs the Avago S3988 optical sensor (like the 2013 Razer Deathadder) and a right handed ergonomic design that looks very much like a Deathadder. You can’t blame ASUS or anyone, for wanting a piece of that pie but does the Gladius do enough to stand out in a crowded market? Let’s find out!
