General I've bought a new mouse because my old Logitech G400 has gone kaput. Hardware ASUS had me then always liked, so I opted for the Strix Claw gaming mouse. Strix is the new range of ASUS, which is specially designed for gamers. Appearance One reason for the Strix Claw was in addition to the technical details especially the optics (The eye plays with!). The mouse is held at the top in matt black on the sides there is a steel gray. The combination is consistent and looks good. The special feature, however: The Strix large logo on back, the LEDs for displaying the DPI setting the front left and the mouse wheel are illuminated in bright orange. This is particularly very cool by the otherwise very dark color. Definitely an eye-catcher on the desk. Processing The mouse is well made, as well as to be expected for a product of over 60 euros. The sculpture seems high, it is no wobbling or yielding detectable. The top is coated and so very handy. Overall, the mouse has eight buttons. On the left side are three thumb buttons, which I find very convenient. There are two small buttons, which is the default setting back to before /, as well as a slightly larger button below, with one changes in the default mouse sensitivity in a way sniper mode. In other words: You can aim much more specifically about in a first person shooter. Pressing the button again, the mode is terminated and the sensitivity is back to normal. Before the mouse wheel also are two key, albeit very small. Here you can only adjust the DPI sampling (mouse sensitivity). A key increases, the other decreases it. Another key is the wheel itself when it expresses. The two remaining buttons are of course the left and right mouse button, here a description is certainly unnecessary. Finally I can say about the keys that you have a good tactile feedback and produce a pleasant, but not too loud click when pressed. Apparently here ordinary switches were installed. The cable is jacketed and therefore less prone to knot or tangle of cables. I find a nice detail. The mouse is relatively large, but is therefore and by the ergonomic shape very well in hand. Especially people keep their mouse with the whole hand (palm is on, so-called palm grip) are here have their joy. I have the mouse beforehand rather with the fingertips held (so-called claw grip), but rather was due to the size of my old mouse. The Claw Strix allowed by their form but with this attitude depositing the palm, very convenient. Note The mouse is designed for right-handers. As a left-hander can they probably do not use so readily. However, the product description also indicates, so I do not see this as a negative thing. Ergonomic design is ambidextrous with usable mice also not possible in this form. Technology The sensor on the ASUS Strix Claw has a sampling rate of a maximum of 5,000 dpi and works up to a speed of 3.32 meters per second. In practice, I can say that the mouse has shown precisely the movements in any situation, whether slowly or frantically. Presumably, hardly anyone will be able to move his mouse with more than 3.32 meters per second, but room for improvement does not harm yes. I have the impression that the movements actually liquid and more accurately than with my old mouse, although I was also very satisfied with the. There are to device software that is also in black / orange, where you can typically make for gaming products all kinds of settings. Installation and operation go slightly out of hand. Here you can remap the thumb buttons, such as with macros or change the dpi jumps for the upper keys. Incidentally, the mouse has an internal memory of 64 KB, on which you can store key assignments and dpi settings as a profile. This means you can even on another computer or after reinstalling instantly plug and play to get started with the usual settings. Very convenient. Nice detail: You can configure the orange illumination for the individual components, ie approximately only illuminate the logo, only the mouse wheel etc. I naturally started everything, because it looks nice. Conclusion: I can issue a strong buy recommendation for the ASUS Strix Claw, the mouse is well finished, has three easily accessible, configurable thumb buttons and also looks great. Movements on any surface 1: Shown 1 without delay. To play really good.
