In all, we genuinely like NZXT’s Avatar. It performed well, it’s comfortable to use, it looks great, and it has all the features gamers look for in a mouse. Left handed users now have a real alternative to Razer’s left handed...

As I'm sure you can see with my long winded write-up on the Avatars packaging, I was extremely impressed, if not suspicious. With everything about the Avatar looking suspiciously like a Razer product, I was expecting only but the best in performance...

NZXT brings a huge array of technology to PC gamers: they are probably best known for cases that fit consumer niches from the value segment, into some of the higher end levels as well. Today we take a look at a tangent venture made by the company to...

Video Review: The NZXT Avatar Gaming Mouse has a 2600 DPI Optical Sensor with up to 15G acceleration accuracy. The Max Speed is 40 Inches/Second, Max Frame Rate is 6469 Frames/Second, Resolution is 650-2600 DPI and the Image Processing is 5.8 Mega...

The NZXT Avatar gaming mouse proved to be just that both in comfort and performance. As mentioned during the course of the review being an ambidextrous mouse opens this product to a market of Southpaws. On many forums the fact that gaming mice are...

The Avatar is a NZXT's attempt to enter the gaming peripheral market, and as far as we are concerned it's a rather good product. With its sleek, elegant look, precise 2600 DPI sensor and that soft blue LED backlight, the Avatar is one of the...

Overall the NZXT Avatar 2600dpi gaming mouse offers a lot of value and performs very well. However, there are a few subtle items that you need to be aware of when considering this mouse. For one, this mouse has a very different feel since it has a...

In sum, the NZXT Avatar is a solid mouse. It eschews a front-back rocker on the thumb side that could have allowed another configurable button in the place of the forward button on the right side. It has some awkwardly-placed buttons directly behind...

If I sound a little hard on the Avatar, it’s intended as constructive criticism for NZXT’s next product – there’s a lot here to like and I want the next one to be even better. The Avatar is simple to set up, simple to use,...

NZXT’s first attempt at making a gaming mouse is quite a success. The overall look, the features, the performance and the design rival those of the more popular mice sold on the market. Given its 2600dpi infrared sensor and low profile, the Avatar...

60 NZXT’s Avatar gaming mouse is to mice what a Steinway is to pianos. This stylish mouse comes with its own CD and user guide. With its cool black matte finish and sleek blue lights that highlight its curves, the Avatar is a decidedly un-mousy...

To be clear just becaue I didnt personally enjoy this mouse doesnt at all mean this is a bad mouse. The NZXT Avatar has a good list of features and a great ergonomic feel to it. Sure its light and the inclusion of some weight adjustments...

I really liked this mouse it is a great first attempt (as far as I know) at gaming peripherals for NZXT. The design and sleek LED’s make is definitely catch your eye at first glance and the fact it has higher DPI than the first G5’s to come...

I’ll admit it right off the bat: I’m a trackball guy. I play a couple of games here and there but most of my computer time is of the workstation variety (well, that and tweaking, modding, OCing etc., but that’s a given). Any control...

The NZXT Avatar gaming mouse took a while to get used to on a few fronts. As I have pointed out, I had been used to 800 DPI for a long time with my Microsoft Natural, along with its mediocre 125MHz polling rate. The extra sensitivity the Avatar...

Oversized Teflon feet on the seven-button Avatar’s underside also help the mouse slide effortlessly over most surfaces. Unfortunately, the nearly symmetrical, elongated design isn’t very comfortable for those with large hands, and the...

What NZXT is exceptionally good in is understanding gamers and their needs. They really target at a pretty niche segment of the market. It shows with their variety of product. They ask a lot of feedback from their customers and design the gear with...

The NZXT Avatar Gaming Mouse is a great addition to anyone's pc no matter what you are doing with it. The Avatar functioned great with applications and games alike, and the software made doing tasks in both much easier. The look is very sleek and...

The NZXT Avatar is very impressive, especially since NZXT are noobs to the gaming peripheral world. Its got a good DPI with perfect accuracy and great comfort ratings; though the sensitivity could have been upped to 3200DPI to bring it in line with...

Overall the NZXT Avatar mouse is a pretty good mouse for NZXTs first attempt at one. The ambidextrous design allows all types of gamers, especially with small hands to feel comfortable with their mouse. I really didnt find anything wrong with the...
