NZXT Avatar S Gaming Mouse Review

When you are looking for a gaming mouse there are a lot of choices.  Some gaming mice are so confusing with 5-10 buttons on them and a million different settings.  What if you just want a gaming-grade mouse without all the frills? Well NZXT has the perfect mouse for you and it comes in at an affordable $40 as well.  The mouse I’m talking about is the Avatar S and it features switchable 400, 800 and 1600 DPI settings, tracking speed of 30-inches per second, 5 programmable buttons, and teflon feet.  Let’s take this mouse for a spin and see how it performs.
