Asus ROG Gla­dius ii

Against the Leg­end

HWM (Philippines) - - Test - By Ch­ester Labaco

With the suc­cess­ful launch of their pe­riph­er­als such as the ROG Clay­more, ASUS is on a roll in the first quar­ter of 2017. In this re­view, we’ll be tak­ing a re­fresh of one of their gam­ing mice, the ASUS ROG Gla­dius II.

The Gla­dius II comes with a man­ual, one ROG logo sticker, two mi­crousb ca­bles (rub­ber and braided), an ROG pouch, and two Om­ron switches.

The ROG mouse is equipped with eight but­tons, all of which are re­bind­able through the ROG Ar­moury. The DPI switch is lo­cated just above the mid­dle mouse but­ton and can be pro­grammed to con­tain two DPI set­tings. RGB light­ing can also con­trolled through an ASUS soft­ware.

The shape of the Gla­dius II will suit most types of grips. Un­for­tu­nately, the mouse isn’t de­signed to be am­bidex­trous. Its con­tours will only suit righthanded gamers.

Ei­ther one of the ca­bles can be at­tached to the front of the mouse. The shell can be re­moved by ex­tract­ing four screws at the bot­tom of the mouse. The Om­ron switches on the left- and right-click can be re­placed by the two ex­tra ones in the pack­age in case the switches break.

The Gla­dius II comes with a PMW-3360 sen­sor. There’s no shortage of DPI re­quire­ments since the sen­sor can be in­crease up to 12,000DPI. In our ex­pe­ri­ence, mouse ac­cel­er­a­tion was not no­tice­able while us­ing the mouse. Lift-off dis­tance of the mouse is also pretty low at a max­i­mum of 2.0mm.

The ASUS ROG Gla­dius II comes face-to-face with the one of the most leg­endary mouse in the cur­rent mar­ket, the Log­itech G502 Chaos Spectrum. It’s re­li­a­bil­ity and per­for­mance, how­ever, makes it a strong con­tender against the op­po­si­tion.
