It has been a while since I did a review of a gaming mouse, the last time was the Fantech Leblanc WG8 Wireless Gaming Mouse, so Today, we are going to take a look at yet another affordable wireless gaming mouse in the form of the Redragon Mirage M690.
Redragon is one of the brands that are on my radar for quite some time now because of its popularity for providing gamers with affordable solutions when it comes to gaming peripherals. And since I don’t have a budget yet to grab one of their mechanical keyboards, I settled for this one for the meantime.
MY EARLY BREAKDOWN
Pros: Affordable, Comfortable, Powered by a very intuitive software
FPS: Max. 4000
1x Redragon 4800DPI Wireless Gaming Mouse
Design and Construction
In terms of design, it’s one of those cool looking gaming mouse without being over the top obnoxious looking one. It has this nice black and red colorway that we always see in Redragon gaming peripherals partnered with red illumination all over the mouse.
Grip and Comfort
When it comes to grip, obviously with the design it’s geared towards right-handed users. It’s suitable for all types of users whether you are a palm grip or claw grip type of gamer, thanks to its well-balanced mouse button design, you can click anywhere between the center up to the tip of the mouse buttons without any issue.
And lastly, on the other side, we have the same texture design to help with grip and it also has this well-appreciated thumb rest at the bottom.
While we’re on this side, let’s discuss the buttons. We have here the forward and back button as well as the rapid-fire button, all of which are customizable using the Redragon mirage software. The same goes for all the other buttons on this mouse.
Redragon Mirage Software
To take full advantage of this mouse, I recommend downloading and installing the Redragon Mirage Sofware from their official website here.
Battery, Connectivity and other Features
The Redragon Mirage M690 uses a AA battery for power and can be connected using the included 2.4Ghz wireless dongle that can reach up to 10-meter range, although you might want to consider not moving too far away to minimize connection issues. It uses an optical sensor but I can’t find any further details as to what kind of optical sensor it has.
Now when it comes to gaming performance for FPS games, the Redragon Mirage M690 perform decent enough for its price but there’s one little problem, as per my testing, I feel like there’s a little bit of latency. Mind you it’s not super fatal and for most users especially casual gamers like me, the latency is pretty much acceptable. Also at this price point, I don’t expect competitive gamers to consider this anyways.
Will I Recommend This? Yes!
Now to conclude, what you’re going to get with the Redragon mirage m690 wireless gaming mouse is the untethered experience on a budget. You’ll have the luxury to experience couch gaming without worrying about wires. The mouse itself is well built and designed with comfortability in mind. If you’re a casual gamer and can tolerate a little bit of latency then shouldn’t have a problem enjoying this mouse. The overall experience is decent for its price and I would still recommend it despite some of its compromises.
