Gigabyte Aorus M2, a new G3 ?

Looks like someone heard our pleas for a straight sided simple ambi mouse..

https://www.aorus.com/product-detail.php?p=909

Specs
Sensor
PMW3327: 220 IPS 30G
Dimensions
117L * 63W * 36H mm
Weight
76g +- 1%

Doesn't sound too shabby


Edit
First impressions

Got mine today
Sensor
PMW3327 220IPS 30G
Default profile steps 400 800 1600 3200 @ 1000hz
LOD 1CD, no adjustment in software
Clicks
Chinese 50M Omrons.
All buttons a tad lighter and crisper than SteelSeries 110, less travel.
Wheel click also lighter but less crisp.
Button latency 2ms faster than G Pro Wireless (wired mode).
Wheel
Kailh 9 encoder.
(Perhaps too) subtle notches while turning.
Wheel ribs very tactile
Shape
Significantly less slant than G Pro, might still have been a bit less for my taste.
Significantly less forward taper than the G Pro
Perfect height and curve, doesn't touch my palm while clawed like the G Pro or Abko would.
Feet
Worst part: The feet are too thin. The mouse bottom is partly indented, with a sharp edge on the de-dent that snags on the mousemat.
Coating
Medium coarseness plastic texturing, better than G Pro / GPW fine texturing for my dry hands
Balance
Noticeably back heavy, but can be fixed by a 10 min mod that reduces back weight by 6 gram.
Cable
Second worst part, it's thin but very stiff. Might splash out on a paracord on this one.
General build quality
Seems top notch for a mouse at this budget (€25), comparable to the Steelseries Rival 110. No rattling.

Quick verdict
Well built light budget ambi, needs some investment to make it really shine (feet, cord). Can be easily modded for better balance and weight (70 grams) in about 10 mins without visual signs but light bleed. If you do that it's probably the best MX300/G1/G3 alternative in some time: No cuts and edges of the G303, less slant and bulge than the G Pro, even a fair bit lighter.

Ooh la la, me likey. Wish they would slap the 3360 in that bad boy. G100/G3 look alikes always end up with budget sensors somehow.

Edit: Looked up the PMW3327 and it doesn't seem so bad anyways. Definite buy for me

the feel when you're stuck using a 10 year old office mouse because you can't aim with anything else... FeelsBadMan

I would try it if it had separated button shell so many mice don't have nice clicks for me.

If you look at a bottom view of a G Pro you can clearly see the sides slanting inwards.

I thought you couldn't with the Aorus, but the black background made it look like there was no slant, while there does seem to be one, even if it's half the G Pro's.
