Good Design – Asus ROG Spatha Gaming Mouse

We first caught a glimpse of the ROG Spatha Gaming Mouse when we attended at Computex last year (along with a killer keyboard we’re still hunting for) and it made for quite the impressive setup, at the time we didn’t realise this was going to be wireless!

RogSpathaDesignThe effort that Asus have put into the design of this large, sturdy, wireless mouse is quite remarkable – It packs a total of 12 programmable buttons, but the 6 side buttons are arranged in a way that forms the ROG EYE, this is quite a awesome feat with form meeting function in an excellent way.  

The mouse is extremely responsive with specs much like the Logitech Chaos Spectrum wireless experience, giving a 1000hz refresh rate wirelessly and a staggering 2000hz (0.5ms) refresh rate for the ultimate performance over a wired connection.

Spatha is quite heavy in comparison but when you hold it you can tell it’s all because no expense was spared making this quality mouse, it uses the renowned Japanese made Omron switches and should you want to change them, ASUS have made things easier by making them interchangeable within sockets and have even included an extra pair 🙂  The angles of the buttons seems to put everything in reach and my mid sized hand fits comfortably over the large frame.

With such impressive attention to detail in the Spatha, Asus have undoubtedly created a premium gaming mouse.  Fun times ahead as we thrash this beast through a range of games, we’ll update our computers blog and GGPC Instagram with more glorious pics soon!
