NZXT Avatar Gaming Mouse


Of particular relevance to this discussion is mouse grips – how people actually hold the mouse in the hand. Here, Razer has probably spent the most time introspecting and quantifying just what it is to hold a mouse; I will be using their definitions as...

If I sound a little hard on the Avatar, it’s intended as constructive criticism for NZXT’s next product – there’s a lot here to like and I want the next one to be even better. The Avatar is simple to set up, simple to use, comfortable for hours at a...

NZXT Avatar Gaming Mouse


Looking for a small, ambidextrous mouse with an incredibly smooth feel? NZXT has what you're looking for with their first ever gaming mouse, the NZXT Avatar. This 2600 DPI mouse has an ergonomic design for both left and right handed people and unlike...

Works for both left or right handed people, - Small design for people with small hands, - Very smooth, - On the fly DPI adjustments

Lacks fine tuning DPI adjustments, - Not for people with large hands

Overall the NZXT Avatar mouse is a pretty good mouse for NZXT's first attempt at one. The ambidextrous design allows all types of gamers, especially with small hands to feel comfortable with their mouse. I really didn't find anything wrong with the...

NZXT Avatar Gaming Mouse


In the world of gaming mice, there are a few names that we see often, such as Logitech and Razer. But, a new entrant is here, and they're hoping to make a splash with their first-ever gaming peripheral. The Avatar from NZXT has both the style and...

When you think of NZXT, what's the first thing to come to mind? If you're like me, you would say computer cases. We aren't just talking about any cases though, but the kind of awe-inspiring work-of-art cases you would see most people trot in with at...

NZXT Avatar Gaming Mouse


We are looking at the first mouse from NZXT - a company typically known for its line of Crafted and Classic series of cases. NZXT also makes fan controllers and power supplies so it's interesting to see them also take on the mouse market as well. Over...

Due to some customer and reviewer complaints, NZXT has updated their NZXT Avatar mouse with a few subtle changes to the button layout and configuration. While we won't go into a bunch of detail, we've posted up some side-by-side pictures of the...

NZXT Avatar Gaming Mouse


The NZXT Avatar is the first input device from the famous case and power supply manufacturer. It offers up to 2600 DPI, clean symmetric looks and a driver software that can rival what Razer and Logitech offer.

Well constructed, Can be used by right and left handed gamers, Well balanced weight for the average person, DPI switch LED, 7 programmable buttons, Hardware DPI switch, software independent, 2600 DPI laser, Solid, fully featured software, Very smooth...

Large, edgy side buttons, Hardware DPI switch requires the use of navigation buttons, May be a bit too lightweight for some, No custom weight system, Possibly too long USB cable, Package design may go under, next to the ones from other manufacturers,...

The NZXT Avatar is a great entry into the gaming mouse market. It delivers all the features we are used to from such input devices at this price point. The Avatar offers programmable buttons, which can be assigned with lengthy macros as well. The DPI...
