Gigabyte GM-M6900 Gaming Mouse


Included Software

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.

  1. You can also find this mouse on if you’re in the UK for £15.

    I’ve been using this for a few months now and it’s the best mouse that I’ve ever used. I recommended it to a friend of mine and I’d recommend it to a lot more people.

    Gaming isn’t the only thing I use it for, but for editing and design in programs such as Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Sony Vegas Pro due to the DPI. I’ve found that for me personally, 2800 seems to be the ideal spot.
