Overall the NZXT Avatar mouse is a pretty good mouse for NZXT’s first attempt at one. The ambidextrous design allows all types of gamers, especially with small hands to feel comfortable with their mouse. I really didn’t find anything wrong with the mouse itself other than the small design didn’t quite work 100% for my large hand. I only found the software to be lacking with fine tuning of DPI settings, but at least they made that up with being able to adjust the polling rate, which I can’t say that I’ve seen on any other software.
With a fairly high price tag of $69.99 at a popular online retailer seems a bit pricey for me, but if you’re looking for that small, ambidextrous comfortable feeling for an extremely smooth mouse, then this is what you’re looking for. If you act now though, you can get a $20 rebate for the mouse, making it $49.99; a bit more reasonable. ThinkComputers awards the NZXT Avatar Gaming Mouse a 9 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award.
