AZiO Levetron GM533U USB Gaming Mouse Conclusion:
Overall the AZiO GM533U was a fair mouse; it just wasn't a gaming mouse as it is so easily named. I feel too many companies, and the market itself, have placed the word "gaming" on everything to try and appeal to those still left in the PC gamer market. It just isn't right; not everyone plays shooters and macros can only be useful in so many games. However, taking away the "norm" doesn't make it anything more than it was.
I seem quite grumpy over losing the forward/back button, but try a day or two without them and you will see why. If it isn't the lack of forward/back buttons that breaks you, then it may just be the style. I do have smaller hands than some of you male gamers, but reaching the macros that are available is awkward at best. To reach the top one, M3, I have to physically pick up my hand to do so – a not so optimal action when the boss is about to deliver its last blow to your head. The scroll wheel skipping every other physical click made page navigation slow, and the tilt was too easy to bump. The Maxi-pad look ends it all with the blood red glow and accent rubbers. I didn't even want to use it the full week of testing, but I endured it for this review.
The AZiO GM533U just isn't a mouse for me and loses my complete respect as a "gaming" mouse.
