Luminous Game Mouse Review

I thought I'd review my cheap mouse I bought from eBay because it has a good chinglish box. It was sold on eBay as 6 Buttons Adjustable USB Wired Optical Game Gaming PC Laptop Mouse Mice 1600 DPI.

As you can see from the box, it allows you to Easily control the infinite passion. I also really like the box design, with the rainbow coloured wordart at the bottom. Unfortunately you can't see it in the photo above, but under where it says USB in the bottom left corner, it tells you the interface is High-Speeounivwrsal Serial Bus. This is also repeated on the back of the box:

Regarding the actual mouse, it works fine. There are two minor issues. One is that I sometimes accidentally press the side button to go back a page when browsing the web. The other is that the constantly on blue light is a bit annoying. If I was buying again, I'd pay a bit more and go for a mouse without built-in lighting. (Seems stupid that you have to pay more to not have something).

(The light is actually quite a bit brighter than in the above photo in real life).

Anyway, as it arrived quickly (dispatched from the UK) and didn't cost much, I am pretty happy with it. My old mouse broke, so I didn't want to wait for a month for a cheaper / no lights model from China / Hong Kong.

Update 2016-10-24: A few months ago the left mouse button started to develop a problem, and this gradually got worse until I found the mouse too difficult to work with, and so got rid of it. The problem was mainly that when clicking and dragging the click would release half-way through the drag. The actual button didn't pop-up or anything weird like that, just the click would terminate part-way through the drag. Occasionally a standard left-click wouldn't register as well. So the mouse gave about a year and a half of decent use.

Ha! Just found this blog by googlin' the immortal words, "easily control the infinite passion". If that's not a motto to live, I don't know what is.

The mouse seems alright considering it cost £4. Anyway, just thought a rep another owner of the INFINITE PASSION. Namaste!
