The ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) line of products is no stranger to gaming peripherals, however recently, ASUS has turned to it’s newer product line, Strix, to release most of it’s gaming oriented products. This made the release of the ASUS ROG Gladius mouse confusing at first, but after realizing that this is ASUS’ premium mouse option it only made sense to put it in ASUS’ most prominent line of products. In this article, Benchmark Reviews takes a look at the ASUS ROG Gladius Gaming Mouse.
Of course, the perfect pointing device has to be a combination of many things, plus some user preferences and of course ASUS understands this and have tried to make the Gladius a bit differently than other mice. Not only can you switch between different cables, but you can also open the mouse and change the switches for your own customization. This leads to a new level of customization that has never been seen before, and ASUS deserves kudos for this.
Looking at the specifications found on the product’s website, it seems that ASUS made a lot of right decisions with the Gladius. The size and dimensions are standard, although I would consider the Gladius a bit longer than most mice. This is important as none of the above mentioned characteristics can be changed. ASUS also mentions compatible Omron switches, which you can easily obtain from sites like Amazon.
