A couple of weeks ago I released my first impressions about the Fantech WG8 Leblanc Wireless Gaming Mouse here, and Today, I am finally ready to give you guys my full review. We’re going to discuss everything you need to know from the design and construction to gaming performance.
The Fantech WG8 according to the official website is actually one of the three wireless gaming mouse that Fantech is currently offering. The other two are the Raigor W4 and the Garen WG7.
MY EARLY BREAKDOWN
Pros: Affordable, Good design and comfort, Decent for casual gaming
Cons: Left and right mouse buttons are on the heavier side
Gaming optimized 2.4GHz wireless 2.0
Design and Construction
The design is actually what got me sold about this mouse. There’s something about the design and the colorway that got my attention. Although the design may seem uncomfortable with sharp edges and grooves, it actually is comfortable in the hands.
My only issue with the design is the glossy finish. I would prefer a matte finish but that’s just my personal preference. Other than that, I think the design is pretty nice overall.
Grip and Comfort
In terms of comfort, the Fantech WG8 Wireless Gaming Mouse has this almost ambidextrous design. Although it was not designed for left-handed users, I find it comfortable enough for both.
On the left side, we have the forward and back buttons that are well placed within reach, and a pattern design for grip.
Battery, Connectivity and other Features
At the bottom, we have the Avago optical sensor, a high precision, low-power optical sensor that allows the mouse to operate on a single AA battery that can last for a long time. Fantech claims for a battery life of up to 6 months. But that, of course, will also depend on the quality of the battery that you are going to use. The good thing about this mouse is that it also has a power saving mode that puts the mouse to sleep when not in use after a certain period of time. You can re-engage it by just clicking the mouse buttons. It also has a manually operated on and off switch at the bottom if you wish to turn it off completely.
This mouse can be connected to your device in just one method, and that’s by using the included wireless transmitter that runs on a 2.4Ghz frequency via USB interface.
Will I Recommend this? Yes!
So in conclusion, what I really like about this mouse is the ergonomic design, the color and the fact that it’s wireless. The battery life is subject to further observation but the performance is decent enough for casual gamers like me, I always say casual gamers for peripherals at this price point because for enthusiasts and hardcore gamers, there’s a lot more factors to consider, low latency, better sensor and better mouse switches, but again, the Fantech WG8 Wireless Gaming mouse is decent enough for its target market and I’m going to continue using this until I get a hands on a better Fantech mouse.
