The Logitech MX815 Gaming Mouse is a rather well-known device in the computer gaming community. It’s one of the more popular gaming peripherals, and for good reason.
Logitech’s MX815 is a wonderful entry-level gaming mouse. I say it’s entry-level only because of the fact that it comes with the basic needs that your average computer gamer would need, without a ton of extra bells and whistles that might be overwhelming (and often unnecessary) for most.
– 1800 dpi optical engine
– Ergonomic comfort design
– In-game sensitivity controls
– Programmable buttons
– Software to customize mouse for certain games
Probably the most important factor when buying a new mouse, for gaming or not, is how it feels in your hand. Let me start off by saying that I personally love the feel of this mouse. I do a decent amount of gaming, and this mouse does everything I would ever need it to. Even the clicks feel very strong and responsive. The natural shape with the thumb rest is fantastic and my mouse hand honestly never gets too tired or cramped even after many hours. If there is one complaint, it’s that the mouse is rather light and a weighted mouse is normally preferred for gaming.
The MX815 comes with a multitude of different buttons that have their own functions, however they can also all be customizable to do whatever you want them to. The standard functions include your two primary left and right clicks, two side buttons positioned near the thumb, a + and – button for quick access to different DPI settings, an “alt+tab” button, and the scroll wheel buttons that click right, left, and down. While their standard settings are extremely useful on their own, remember that you can customize them to follow all sorts of macros or other functions. One set of buttons you probably won’t want to change are the DPI buttons – These are quite useful for on the fly setting changes. If you like different sensitivities for different games, you simply have to click the + or – button to change it, and it’s just as easy to change it back.
Overall it’s just a great mouse, for gaming or not. It feels good, it’s very responsive, it has a lot of room for customization, and it’s something that’s going to last you a long time. If you’re looking for a solid gaming mouse that will cover all your needs, as well as having a very reasonable price, I definitely recommend checking out Logitech’s MX815 Gaming Mouse.
