ASUS RoG Pu­gio

Play the hand you’re dealt.

The RoG Pu­gio walks the fine line be­tween com­plete am­bidex­trous sup­port and high­per­for­mance gam­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties and does so with fi­nesse.

The long and flat de­sign and but­ton lay­out are both func­tion­ally sym­met­ri­cal and feel com­fort­able in both palm and claw grips. At only 106g, the Pu­gio is fairly light, and con­sid­er­ing the re­sis­tance of the rel­a­tively stiff braided cable, the mouse some­times has to bat­tle against this. The am­bidex­trous fea­tures ex­tend to the abil­ity to swap out the two side but­tons with a blank, non-click­able panel, giv­ing you the op­tion of hav­ing these but­tons on ei­ther side of the mouse, both sides, or nei­ther. For even fur­ther phys­i­cal cus­tomi­sa­tion, ASUS has in­cor­po­rated a Push-Fit switch sys­tem that al­lows you to re­place the Om­ron switches with dif­fer­ent lev­els of re­sis­tance. The Pu­gio comes with a lit­tle case for stor­ing the spare switches (a pair of which are in­cluded) and the side-but­tons or blank pan­els when not in use.

The RoG Ar­moury soft­ware is user-friendly and of­fers some se­ri­ous tweak­ing, in­clud­ing polling rates, DPI switching and macros, although the lim­i­ta­tion of three switch­able pro­files is un­for­tu­nate. If you’ve got sev­eral RoG de­vices, you can sync all of the RGB light­ing ef­fects via this soft­ware and get a real cos­mic dis­play hap­pen­ing.

Con­sid­er­ing the premium fea­tures, de­tailed soft­ware, and cus­tomis­abil­ity, the Pu­gio is def­i­nitely worth the $129, and for left-handed gamers, this is a no-brainer.

Ver­dict

The am­bidex­trous na­ture, cou­pled with the cus­tomis­abil­ity in both de­sign and soft­ware, it’s a win­ner.
