Asus ROG Gladius ii
Against the Legend
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.
