A brand that needs more recognition in the PC gaming peripheral market is Shogun Bros. They make high quality products worthy of the highest praise, and the Ballista MK-1 Gaming Mouse is proof of that. The market in the ~$50 price bracket is very high, so it is hard to wade through all the different brands and mice. In this article Benchmark Reviews hopes to shed some light on why the Shogun Bros. Ballista MK-1 is quite possibly the best-in-class must have gaming mouse.
The thing that really stands out about the Shogun Bros. Ballista MK-1 Gaming Mouse is the very strange ergonomic design. The model reviewed is all black with multicolored LED’s lighting up many areas of the surface. The addition of the very large and pronounced two buttons on the top right side of the mouse adds to the unusual visual characteristics. The highly responsive 8,200 dpi sensor is very good, and never seems to skip or stutter in the slightest bit.
In this article we will take a closer look at the mouse by testing its functionality in both gaming applications as well as everyday tasks such as internet browsing and office program use. The offset high dpi laser will be tested for its functionality as well as responsiveness. We will really dig into the specs and go through them, giving in depth answers to some burning questions. Let’s get the review underway!
