[section_title title=”Closer Look”]Closer Look
Time for a closer look at the mouse.
From the top down you can see the mouse is designed to fit the palm nicely and drawing the eye immediately is the Strix Owl logo. We can also see here the scroll wheel and the DPI buttons.
The right-hand side of the mouse features finger shaped grooves which should help users locate their fingers nicely to stop the annoying feeling of dragging them across the mouse mat.
Here we have a front on view where we can see the cable router that lifts the cable up on the way out and also the DPI indicator on the right hand side of the shot, two features I was really pleased to see on a mouse at this price point.
The left-hand side of the mouse features three nicely located buttons, the large one being a DPI clutch/sniper button by default.
Here we have the underside of the mouse which is a pretty standard affair.
Finally we have the cable which has a nice cloth braid and the connector which has a nice custom shroud and gold plated contacts just like on the Tactic Pro.
So overall I quite like the look of the mouse, for under £50 the quality feels good and there are plenty of cool looking features to test out. On the next page, we’ll have a quick look at one of the mouse mats ASUS are offering as a companion to the Strix Claw.
