MSI CLUTCH GM70 GAMING MOUSE
$139 • www.au.msi.com • Score: 3/5
This wireless (or optionally cabled) mouse is highly configurable for lefties or righties, with two panels for each side of the mouse, so you can have a thumb rest or less hefty panel in whatever configuration you wish.
The side-panels connect via strong magnets, but getting them to attach properly is a bit tricky, as they’re rather prone to not lining up properly, and scratching on your desk. And because the cable is such a chore to remove it’s easy to knock them loose in the process.
In wired mode, the mouse may be too heavy, but it remains smooth and precise both on the desktop and in game. Unplug the GM70 and performance dropped drastically whenever my PC was under load, skipping and failing to track by varying degrees.
It always feels churlish to be this critical of a company’s first effort in a new arena, but as it stands this is not a great start, and hard to recommend to gamers, especially FPS players. The weight and inaccuracy in tracking is just too much of a drawback.
