    Mouse is based off of the EC2 shape which will fit most medium to small hands well. 3360 sensor is older but functionally flawless compared to more updated iterations such as the 3389. You’ll notice no issues in use and I didn’t have any while testing it. The weight leaves quite a bit to be desired as despite having a honeycomb shell, the weigh is only 73 grams. There are competitors with wireless functionality and mostly solid shell that come in at only 59 grams. The feet have decent glide but even budget mice of a similar price from other companies have pure 100% virgin PTFE feet which are white. These aren’t. Being called 100% PTFE is a misleading statement. The mice is alright all around but that is more or less the issue. There are mice at very similar price points with lower weight, better features such as optical switches, pure 100% virgin PTFE feet and having solid shells so XPG’s first outing for their peripherals has me a bit disappointed.

  2. Reviews and Information

    From a hardware perspective I think the XPG Slingshot mouse is nice. It is lightweight but decently balanced and doesn’t feel cheap or flimsy. The cord is also light and didn’t drag on my desk. It did feel a little large to my hand, but not cumbersome, and the buttons were all easy to reach and press. Unfortunately, mine met a premature end. I wasn’t happy with the pre-programmed lighting effects, so I tried to use the XPG software to make a new setting. The software said that the mouse required a firmware update, but the update glitched out and bricked the mouse. After a lot of firmware updates and motherboard BIOS flashes, this was the first I’ve ever had go seriously wrong. I sent a message to XPG using their website chat while they were out-of-office, just saying without any other info that it was totally dead, and got an email back a few days later saying they’d replace it and giving instructions on how to get their online return forms. I haven’t actually gone through the process, but based on the quick and positive initial response, I expect an RMA to go smoothly if I tried.

    I LOVE this mouse. I gave the Lodvie mouse a rave review for the same reasons. It feels like a Logitech G203 in hand. Has the same shape and design but WAY better. The side buttons are out of the way so even people with big hands will not accidentally press it. It is light, having about 60% of the unit cut away in small triangles giving it better grip, lighter weight and a nice look imo.
    It has semi programmable RGB. And it can be turned off. There is also an off mode that when a button is pressed it lights up but otherwise stays off.
    DPI up to 12000 and a button that is recessed enough not to accidently hit while in use.
    It has a soft, almost silky cord that does not tangle and slides easily. And although the laser doesn’t track well on unstable surfaces like a leg or a bed, it tracks perfectly on anything solid. This is nitpicking, I know, but had to be mentioned.
    This is the best mouse in the vein of the style of mouse that I like, easily. I am using it as my daily driver now. That’s how good it is.
    Played a few hours of Fortnite with it and fell in love instantly.

    Pros: Great Look
    Great feel
    Nice RGB especially off
    Clever triangle patterning makes it light and graspable
    Over sized scroll wheel
    Buttons placed so that you do not accidentally hit them while in game

    Cons: About $10 too expensive for what it is
    Lacks wireless capabilities for the price
    Left side sometimes feels spongy due to the triangles cut into the side. If you are from XPG reading this, you’d be better off with the side button area being solid of at least leave the last two rows of triangles in for stability, a few times I pressed the plastic expecting it to react like a button until I got used to it.

    On a side note, RocketJumpNinja, YouTube’s mouse specialist, uses and recommends the XPG brand of mice and now I can see why.

    I like ADATA and wanted to like this mouse because there’s a lot to like, but the software hangs. I can’t open the software until I update the firmware. I can’t update the firmware without being in the software. It’s sort of a chicken/egg problem. Maybe my expectations are too high, but Windows 10 was released almost 8 years ago. How is a major company that I’m supposed to trust with my money and the security of PC (with the installation of their software) still screwing up software that’s needed to make their product function correctly? Really? A teenager in their grandma’s basement could have done better than this.

    It’s a decent mouse for the price otherwise.

    -This mouse is very good for people with large hands, which I appreciate
    -It’s feather light, which I don’t love, but it’s not a deal breaker
    -All the typical DPI settings and RGB are adjustable without the software, which is nice.
    -Windows didn’t give me any warnings when I downloaded and installed the software. I can’t believe this is a plus, but there are some very good mouse manufacturers out there that still haven’t registered the software with Microsoft or something. So at least the broken software isn’t being flagged by Windows as suspicious or dangerous.
