Thought I would share this with you guys as it looks to be fairly promising, I've been waiting for ultralight ergo mice for a while since I like the weight of the GPW and Model O but I miss the comfortable shape of mice like the G403. I've been waiting for the Xtrify Project 4 which looks promising, but after seeing the review posted today for this new G-Wolves mouse I'm pretty close to pulling the trigger on this one as well.
It's a 66g Zowie EC shape, larger than an EC2, and ever so slightly smaller than the EC1 based on the dimensions given. PMW3360 sensor with a dpi button under the mouse and there's an RGB ring around the base and an optional paracord cable in the box. The packaging looks really nice too. It comes in Black/Grey or White.
G-Wolves appears to be a Chinese brand that makes Zowie clones, and I've never heard of them before now, so if it wasn't for this video by Brandon Taylor I'd be feeling pretty sketchy about it, but after watching his review it looks quite promising. The mouse is only available through x-raypad, a Chinese website that appears to sell a limited range of mice as well as mouse pads and other accessories from China to the rest of the world. Release is set for end of July by the looks of things. Here's the review video:
One thing that I noticed though, is that BT added a correction at the end of the video to say that it costs $40, not $60. However the product page says $59 so I'm not sure what's going on there.
I think it's going to be popular and I am looking forward to trying it out, the only thing I'm concerned about with it being a Chinese brand I've never heard of before is QC and warranty if anything goes wrong with it. I'm not sure I understand x-raypad's return policy, or RMA procedure's if there are any.. When searching online for G-Wolves, I couldn't find a manufacturer website at all. For me, it's going to cost a little over $100 AUD to buy it and have it shipped to Australia, so I'd be pissed if I got a really bad sample and had no way to RMA.
Let me know what you guys think.
