Aerox 3 Wireless Mouse Overview
The Aerox 3 Wireless is designed to be a lightweight gaming mouse so it only weighs in at 68 grams, which is pretty impressive considering the mouse is wireless. With the Ghost Edition SteelSeries has gone with a an opaque white frame, which actually matches the pudding keycaps on the keyboard.
Starting with the two main buttons on the mouse, these are powered by next-gen Golden Micro IP54 switches that are rated for 80 million click and offer dust and water resistance. These buttons slope down towards the front of the mouse and have a concave shape. In between the two main buttons is a small profile switch button, and then of course we have our scroll wheel, which is wrapped in rubber for a comfortable a tactile feel. Right at the front of the mouse is a USB-C connection for charging the mouse and using it in wired mode with the included cable.
On the left side of the mouse are two white buttons (your typical back and forward). On the opposite side of the mouse you won’t find any buttons. There is also not any sort of grip on either side of the mouse, but the frame itself is not all that slippery compared to some others I’ve tested.
You will notice quite a lot of holes on the mouse, especially on the palm rest. This of course helps the mouse be lightweight. The structural integrity of the mouse seems to be very solid given all of the holes, pressing quite hard on the sides and top there was no flex at all. One thing that SteelSeries did on this mouse which is really cool is that they re-engineered the electronics so circuit board is 50% slimmer. With all of the openings in the mouse shell it is good that the electronics inside have an IP54 rating.
Flipping the mouse over to the bottom you’ll find two large 100% virgin grade PTFE glide skates. At the center is the sensor which is SteelSeries TrueMove Air Sensor. It is a 18,000 DPI senor with a tracking speed of 400 IPS and 40G acceleration. Right above the sensor is a small switch that switches the mouse from Bluetooth mode (left), wired mode or off (center), and 2.4 GHz wireless (right).
