NZXT Avatar S gaming mouse review

 

The NZXT Avatar S is a low-profile, lightweight, inexpensive gaming mouse that even works for left-handed gamers.

At first, the Avatar S was a bit uncomfortable for gaming due to its narrow width. My normal habit is to grip the mouse on the sides with my thumb and pinky, lay my index and middle fingers on the left and right buttons, and either lay my ring finger...

Stereotypes can be quite hilarious. Whether we like it or not, we tend to know a few of these racial tendencies for every race out there. Heck, it doesn't even need to be a race. I can say the phrase, "old married couple", and a small list in your head...

Updated optical sensor looks to offer gaming precision at a good price.

The Avatar S is NZXT's latest foray into the extremely competitve gaming mouse market, traditionally dominated by only a few companies. A tall order, to be sure for NZXT, but the Avatar S was a pleasant surprise for its price.

NZXT make strides to reach Pandora with the Avatar S mouse. Did they manage? Let's find out!

The Avatar S impressed me. For a simple box and small mouse I thought I wouldn't be impressed, but I was. Thanks NZXT, you've shown that gaming mice can be light and quick as well as looking great.

The company releases a simpler version of its first gaming-grade peripheral, aimed at the less demanding user. Read our evaluation.

Designed for right- and left-handed users ; Simple configuration software ; Black and white color options

A little too light ; Low sensitivity ; Fixed resolution settings ; Few assignable buttons requires using the little finger buttons ; Elongated body doesn't favor the “claw grip” fans ; A little expensive for such a simple model

When it comes to mice there are several big brands on the market and they all have several models, which should you buy?

Fast ; Comfortable ; For left and right handed ; For smaller and bigger hands ; Price

Missing support for back of the hand

This mouse is great, but there is an “IF”…which is this;  IF you don't mind a mouse that is straight and not shaped for right or left hand. It works great for gaming and normal daily computer usage and I have also found it to be good for people with...

The Avatar S is an even smaller variant of the original design, ideal for gamers that prefer a thinner and more low-profile mouse.

The NZXT Avatar S is designed for gamers that prefer the feel of a narrow mouse with a low-profile, making it ideal for gamers with smaller or thinner hands. During the course of our testing I was able to use the Avatar S for a few days, both in and...
