VicTsing T7 Overview
As somebody who buys things on a budget as opposed to getting the most expensive thing possible, when it was time to get myself a new gaming mouse, the T7 by VicTsing was my choice immediately thanks to its cheap price of £11.99, the list of features it has, and the large number of overwhelmingly positive reviews it has on Amazon.
The T7 has 7 programmable buttons in total – the two buttons on the side allow you to go backwards and forwards one page on a web browser – and has 5 levels of DPI (dots per inch; it’s basically the sensitivity of the mouse) which you can cycle through with a simple press of the buttons at the top of the mouse; each level of DPI has a different colour mapped into it as well, turning the mouse into the colour corresponding the level of sensitivity.
Rubber grilles on the side of the mouse helps you to grip the T7 exceptionally well, and 4 smooth feet at the bottom of the mouse helps it to grip on whatever surface you may use it on.
This mouse is sheer brilliance, and I would like to walk you through some of the things I love (and dislike) about this highly budgeted gaming mouse. So, without further ado, join me as we go through the VicTsing T7 in this review of mine!
For Such a Small Price Tag, This Mouse Has a Lot Going for It
The amount of features and possibilities you get with this mouse for the price tag it has is nothing short of brilliant; it’s not very common for cheap PC accessories to have a wide range of features or an endless amount of possibilities at its disposal…
For example, other gaming mice on the market with a price tag similar to the T7 don’t have 5 levels of DPI nor are they even adjustable… they’re usually limited to only a single DPI level with a fixed number, and there’s nothing you can do to change it.
With the T7, you have a choice of five different levels of DPI, and by using the software that comes with the driver (which you can download here; just scroll down to the T7 driver setup when you open the page) you can customize how much DPI you want each level to have.
For example, if there is a PC gaming pro player that you follow who uses a specific DPI setting with their games, you can use this mouse and software to change your DPI to what theirs are.
Additionally, when it comes to the LED colours on other budget gaming mice, these cannot be adjusted at all, so if you have a PC setup that’s focused entirely on one colour (like mine for example; my gaming chair, monitor; PS4 controller, keyboard and mouse are all red and black 😉 ) and you get a mouse which is an entirely different colour, it’s going to ruin your previously perfect setup.
With the T7, on the other hand. you are free to change the colour of each DPI level via the driver software; you can choose whatever colour you’d like from the spectrum too, so you aren’t limited to a small set of colours. If there is a single colour you really want this mouse to be, you will be able to make it happen.
As Well as Having Great Features, This Mouse Handles Really Well in Gaming
The problem with cheap gaming mice is how bad they handle on a surface, particularly on a mouse mat or a desk; the optic sensors usually can’t keep up with any rapid movements you do with the mouse, and it can completely throw off your aim, which can be disasterious in games that require pin-point precision with your mouse… the T7 is a slight exception to this.
Notice that I said “slight”… while it can keep up with rapid movements better than other cheap gaming mice on the market, the sensor still has a few hiccups if you move it quickly enough, though that could just be on my end; my mouse mat gets really dirty at times, so it could just very well be a problem for me only.
Nevertheless, for the majority of the time I’m using it, the sensor never misses a flick I make across my mouse mat, and the game always manages to keep up with me.
Now, let’s talk about the weight of this mouse because for some people this is a surprisingly important factor when it comes to buying a mouse… The T7 is a pretty heavy mouse, and definitely the heaviest I’ve ever used. If you like your mice light, this might not be the best one for you.
As for me, its weight took me some time to get used to, but after a while using it now is a breeze for me… I would have preferred it to be a little bit lighter in weight however.
It’s Decided, the T7 Is a Brilliant Budget Gaming Mouse
Even though it isn’t perfect, I absolutely adore this gaming mouse, and I know many others are on the same boat as me and adore their T7 too. While dirt seems to be very attracted to this mouse, especially at the sides where dirt can easily find its way in between the side grip holes, this isn’t something a simple wipe with a wet tissue or a wet wipe can’t sort out.
With 5 levels of adjustable DPI and customizable colour changes thanks to its easy to use driver software, this is a budget gaming mouse that I highly recommend you pick up, whether you want a mouse to use for gaming or for general computer use.
