Included with the M6900 is an utility allowing you to customize the programmable buttons and the 3 DPI settings. For a complete understanding of DPI, check out our review on the Tt eSPORTS Azurues Mini Gaming Mouse. The utility allows you to program a “Low”, “Medium”, and “High” setting which can then be easily switched back and forth using the top DPI buttons. Customizing the 5 buttons is also done here. While this is a nice feature, the options seem to be more aimed at the “web surfer” than the gamer as the utility has a defined amount of functions (See pic below). The mouse buttons can be defined in game, but I’d like to see this utility option more open. (For instance, I wanted to program one of the thumb buttons to F12. No can do with this utility) Also, the “Left Click” button is not customizable yet the box boasts 5 programmable buttons.
A couple other Tidbits to touch on:
- When shaken, the mouse has a rattle. Not sure whats causing the rattle, but the mouse still works fine. Maybe just a loose piece of useless plastic.
- The mouse is picky on what surface it is used on. The response time/accuracy is not the same from a mouse pad to a desk. Granted this is to be expected, it’s more noticeable with this mouse than others I’ve used.
- A worry I had when I first started using this mouse is the location of the DPI buttons. Accidentally changing DPI mid-game can really throw you for a loop: however, I have not had this problem here. They rest untouched between the first and middle finger (almost close to the knuckle). This makes changing DPI “On The Fly” a little challenging, but not impossible.
*Upon arrival, this mouse did give me a little driver trouble. After upgrading the firmware (found here), all is well.
