A4tech bloody R8A wireless gaming, opinions?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey guys
So basically I have tried plenty of mice in the past, and I currently own a mionix naos 7000 and avior 8000 but I'm looking for a wireless gaming mouse for my laptop for my weekly lan meet up with friends and I really don't want to keep connecting and disconnecting USB ports from my laptop as to elongate the laptop lifespan, the only wireless gaming mouse that is available locally and within my price range is the R8A which is priced at 45$ And I have some concerns regarding the quality of the mouse, researching a bit I can see that a4tech is n old company but it doesn't seem to be that relevant anymore. So I would love to hear from people who have products from them or had in the past, my questions are ..
1- irreplaceable batteries means that after 1 or 2 years the wireless function becomes absolute ( should i worry about this)
2- does this mouse have a omeron switches how durable are the switches on this mouse ?
3- I saw an Amazon review saying that the micro USB port is not that Durable and could come right off, warranty is not available here and I don't want to buy a mouse where after few charges it breaks

Would love some replies from guys who own or owned or know someone that owns a4tech gaming mouse to shed some lights on my questions.

Thank u all..!!

60 people who saw the thread, realised they had no experience with this obscure mouse and didn't post. Your point being?

I owned a wired A4Tech Bloody V3 for over a year, until I started playing FPS games again, in which 3305 sensor with 1,7 m/s pcs wasn't cutting anymore it, so had to make a switch. This one should have 3050 which achieves considerably higher speeds at low DPI. About switches, my Bloody used Huano ones, but had no problems with them whatsoever, buttons were very easy to click and had one of the lowest delays ( < 3 ms)

According to their product page:

Frame capacity: 3.68M pixels/sec 75 IPS: That means it has a 3305 DK sensor which for FPS is not that good, < 2 m/s on black pads , freaks out on colored pads and has a very small amount of prediction but at least low LOD.

Also there are usually 2 versions of their mice, the ones ending in M or with "Xglide" in box or red feet have some lame metal feet that are too rough on clothpads but probably are better and durable for hard pads or to use on desk surface. Buttons + scroll are usually huano and have decent durability and click. Bloody R3 and R7 are the only wireless versions that use A3050

I own an A4Tech Blazing A9, bought it for 20$, It has really good shape for palm, close to deathadder, on product page they state they use Omrons rated for 20 million clicks, almost too good to believe for only 20$, Avago 3050 sensor that does 2.8 m/s but with a tiny bit of jitter. decent build quality and buttons, still in good condition after 1 year, although not my main gaming mouse because of annoying braided cable and a little bit too heavy for me thats why i will never use a wireless mouse.

A4Tech is just unbeatable in price/quality ratio but they only use low end optical sensors and use laser sensors for their expensive products. Unless you use very low sensitivity for FPS and need those strong sensors (A3090 3310 3988 etc) with 4+ M/s at high DPIs , but their laser versions can get high speeds too.
But because they never sponsored any gaming team and are rarely sold in wealthy countries they have bad reputation and almost nobody does reviews of their products despite having decent quality.

not understanding something doesn't mean it's dumb. Especially when it works.

thanks alot for your detailed reply, and for taking the time to help me out in my purchase, I'm not a competitive player, and not a big FPS gamer, and for that I got the Mionix naos 7000 on my desktop which has an optical sensor, I just want a wireless mouse to play games with friends like wargame reddragon, contagion, company of heros, supreme commander, mostly just strategy fun and non competitive FPS. my DPI in FPS are usually between 1000 and 1600, my main concern with the mouse is it's internal battery, I really have issues with battery stuff that are irreplaceable, its rated at 500 charges that means approximately 2 years of usage on battery. but then again at 40$ 2 years is more than enough?!.
