Avago ADNS-3050 optical gaming mouse - Ajazz 8D Griffin

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Here is a short review for my recently acquired mouse, purchased from Ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ajazz-8D-Griffin-4000DPI-optical-wired-High-end-gaming-mouse-for-Pro-gamer-FPS-/230970189991?pt=Mice&hash=item35c6e568a7

The mouse has an optical sensor, which has a thread written about in this forum:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1076119/avago-adns-3050-entry-level-optical-gaming-sensor

Some pictures of the mouse and the content of the package:



And to the details:
Package of the mouse comes with a teflon skates and a warranty certificate. (Though it's in chinese smile.gif )
Mouse is ambidexterous, beside the regular buttons, there are 2 side buttons for back/forward, and another 3 on-top:
one is for switching DPI, one for switching polling rate, and one assigned by default for fast double-clicking.

As for the DPI, there is a LED which indicated which is selected:
No light - 1000 (default)
Red - 2000
Blue - 3000
Green - 4000

Since the sensor rated DPI is 2000, I would recommend avoid the last 2 options, and stick to 1000 or 2000. (I personally prefer 1000 DPI)

The polling rate can also be changed, and range between 250 to 1000Hz, from my experience higher is better, and it feels smooth for 500Hz and above.

The 3rd button is rather gimicky in my opinion and hardly used. It can be set for other functions when playing games, which I think will make a better use for.

As for the dimensions and weight: 123(L) x 73(W) x 41(H)mm, 150 grams.
Which means - It's HUGE. people with small hands will find it a bit hard to use, Even people with normal sized hands will take a bit of time to adjust.
The design is not ergonomic, and ambidexterous. doesn't feel too comfortable due to the size from the first minute of use, but after adjustment of several days it feels just right. (personal experience my vary, of course)

Pros and Cons
Pros
-Good sensor: feels smooth and responds very well.
-Well... It's rather low cost smile.gif. for ~20$, you can't really go wrong. good value for money.
-Feels solid and well-built. has high quality cable, and feels robust.
-LED indication makes it visible to see what DPI is set.

Cons
-As was mentioned before, It's HUGE. not suitable for people with small hands.
-not ergonomic, might feels uncomftorable initially.
-Top button is rather small and hard to use during fast pace game.

Summary
Feels smooth and precise, and low cost makes it a very liable option for those on a budget.

Actually, I'm not.

Here are a few pointers for you before you jump to assumptions:

1) I have nothing to gain.
2) I could of bother to open a different account, but I didn't.
3) I just started recently by writing 2 lousy reviews, which happened to be of the same company. coincidence.

So, feel free to "be aware" of whatever you want. smile.gif

Have a nice day.

You got a disk with your? I haven't...

As for your question: the only way I'm aware of for checking which Hz is set (beside checking the datasheet), is by softwares such as mouserate, and I'm sure there are many more which do the same.
Just google mouserate and you'll find plenty more download links.

thanks I downloaded a program last night I think I got it figured out. I did receive a disk but I runs a progam for setting up your buttons and a few other things but I can understand any of it. thanks again
