[Sponsored] YCCTEAM G10 Optical Wired Gaming Mouse Review

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I have been given this mouse and promised to review it, so here goes...




Packaging

The packaging is simple, yet clear. No wasted materials and certainly no wasted ink or labelling. A simple brown folded box with a vacuum formed plastic shell inside to hold the mouse is honestly all that you need. The print is clear and at first seems to all be fairly accurate, that is until you look at the specifications and features written on the side of the box. Here we can see the level of care taken that has become synonymous with cheap mass produced Chinese electronics: spelling and punctuation errors, terrible translation and opinions stated as facts.

Appearance

Upon opening the box and seeing the mouse it looks fantastic! I was as much concerned that it was in fact a Decepticon from transformers rather than a mouse and spent my time with it quietly eyeing it up to make sure it wasn't going to try and kill me or something. It's a very impressive looking piece of kit! I cannot fault the looks of this mouse, it is fantastic, the LED colour choices are good, they're clear. The Faux Chrome is nice and creates a nice sense of contrast alongside the matt finish palm rest and grips. The metal work whilst not jagged is not finished particularly well and cut marks are still visible. The 'Chrome' plastic flanges on the sides of the left and right main mouse buttons are actually very harsh, and as such after a few hours of gaming they can start to rub and make things pretty uncomfortable.



Feel

The mouse feels OK at best in the hand. The mouse lacks a little height for my liking and so my palm was rubbing pretty badly after several hours of gaming making it uncomfortable. The harsh edges on the flanges actually cut my finger during a particularly tense fire fight and so i can honestly say it does not look better with blood dripped over it!

Function

I tested this mouse over several hours of playing various styles of game which I will list at the end of this section. Where this mouse looks fantastic the same cannot be said for how well it functions. To start with the basics, left and right mouse buttons are easy to hit but have something of a dead spot towards the back (palm side) of the button, however that can be said with a lot of mice. The scroll wheel (MB3) actually feels nice and responds well giving just enough feedback to feel each step as it rotates and needs enough pressure to press that it's not often that you will accidentally press it whilst scrolling. The Thumb buttons (mb 4, 5 and 6 respectively) are unfortunately not good, they regularly stick, are oddly placed (possibly just my hand size) and feel unnatural to use in games.

The worst part of this mouse are the last 3 buttons. They are placed so oddly (centre of the mouse just behind MB 1, 2 and the scroll wheel) that they are just not practical for use, especially in gaming where they will be needed regularly and quickly. The centre mouse button is so large and sits so high that it is very easy to accidentally press it whilst just simply moving. To use these buttons you need to actually move your hand off the mouse and backwards, which as any gamer will know is not a good thing at all.

Whilst playing I couldn't help but notice the noise given off by each of the buttons, when using multiple buttons in combination rapidly the noise started to really get to me. The only way I can describe the tone of clicking is that it was like I had eaten a large bag of Popping candy that simply would not end. Much longer and I'm certain it would have driven me to the point of murder or at least arson!

This will obviously not be an issue for the Headphone Gaming Army™.

The games I tested this on were as follows: World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Paragon, League of Legends, Transistor & Ghost in the Shell.

Overwatch and Ghost in the Shell are both FPS games, The mouse performed better in these than any of the other games, it was responsive and accurate. the weight of the lower plate meant it was easy to keep stable as well making sniping easy!

League of Legends is a MOBA where fast twitch reactions are required and unfortunately the rapid clicking and constant rubbing on my palm and fingers meant that this was an awful experience.

Transistor is and ARPG and was fine with this mouse, honestly due to the nature of the game this was not much of a test.

Paragon is a third person MOBA and suffered from the same problems as both League of legends and World of Warcraft.

World of Warcraft is easily the game I spend most time playing these days. Unfortunately there are just not enough accessible buttons for this type of gameplay which is related to the problems with the placement of some of the buttons as I pointed out earlier. The mouse rubbed as lot and didn't give enough support or height to keep my palm from rubbing constantly causing some pain and irritation after just an hour or two.

Price

So the price is the best part of this mouse between £15 and £22 on Amazon UK. Many different Chinese manufacturers are producing the exact same mouse for various prices with the YCCTeam version coming in at £17 and £22. However with that said I think that's still a little expensive for what you get, a half functional mouse that feeds on your blood and pain!

Conclusion

Not the mouse for me!

As for giving a rating I would give it maybe a 3 out of 5 simply because of how good it looks, but if you are a gamer who is sensitive to mouse / keyboard noise, does not use headphones and who has fairly large hands like me then any money spent on this would probably be wasted as you would soon be needing to buy a new mouse... to replace your new mouse.

Good for:

FPS shooters

Not good for:

Most other types of gaming I tried.

How? Did I miss something?

On another note, how can you (The OP, not Ino) give a mouse which is more dangerous than a lithium battery a score? I would give it a -1 for being a hazard to one's health.

Also:

 

Quote:
Adopted 3050 Chip: Stable and fast, which had greatly extended game's practicability and ductility. Used OMRON micro switch, its life can be up to 10 million times.

 

Ductility lol.

 

It also has one Omron, and its already used.

I got PMs with links to those things asking me to review them. There were also threads with the same topics, got deleted pretty fast.

I would not really call it a scam, more like a hardware for review deal but yes, I do not approve of people signing up to OCN just to spam members PM to get reviewers and not contribute to the forum in any other way.

I just said yes and did it because I had some free time and thought, why not?

The review I feel speaks for itself, and yes, a 3 out of 5 score was pretty generous biggrin.gif
