Video Reviews

Video review from the channel ASUS ROG BALTICS

A scientist's third-grade daughter did a free study on the World Wide Web.

The mouse turned out to be very cool in form, which took all the best decisions from competitors and brought in its decisions, some controversial, some very cool.

Cool mouse - a very cool design, it's cool that you can change switches, all of these keys are a trifle, but nice.

I would not say that this is just marketing - if you buy this mouse, it has everything and you will have it for many years.

We have a truly versatile wireless mouse. Particular attention should be paid to the sensor - it is almost impossible to break.

I didn’t pin any hopes on the top-notch product, I was probably even skeptical about this mouse, and as a result I got the mouse that I will always use on a constant basis.

For two weeks of use, I have only pleasant impressions of the mouse. Pressing the buttons is clear, there are almost no backlashes, the sensor works smoothly, without interruptions, the mouse is convenient for work and of course for games.

The mouse is comfortable to use, I liked that it is synchronized with the computer and the keyboard, everything glows in time and in tune.

With a lightweight design, seven programmable keys, as well as integrated Aura RGB lighting, the Pugio II will suit any gamer who wants perfection during the game.
