XM1 RGB from Endgame Gear
Although a relatively new manufacturer, Endgame Gear have quickly developed a repuation for producing high quality peripherals for esports pros. As such they have eschewed the flashy or gimmicky elements to create minimistic, perfectly designed products. Of course from time to time we all need a little colour...
Elegant and stylish with up to 16.7 million colours available
Endgame Gear have fitted 16 LEDs to the XM1 RGB. This means it is capable of generating up to 16.7 million colours across 3 zones on the mouse (base, wheel and logo). The bundle software makes it easy to cycle through 5 different lighting modes and the 4 brightness levels.
The XM1 RGB has been designed to be both sensative and accurate. To achieve this it features Kailh GM 4.0 (60gf) 60M (an improvement over its predaceor), which are also remarkably durable, capable of function with up to 60 million accuations. Endgame Gear have also fitted out the XM1 RGB with a PixArt PMW3389, which has a CPI of 50-16000, a 450 IPS tracking speed and 50g acceleration.
Users can of course customise the XM1 RGB to match their own preferences. By default there are 4 CPI profiles: 400, 800, 1600 and 3200. These more minutely adjusted via software. Similary the USB polling rate can be change from 250, 500 and 1000 Hz. The XM1 RGB's 5 buttons can also be customised via software and users can choose to disable sensor smoothing there as well.
All in the XM1 RGB strikes the prefect balanace between style and substance. The RGB elements only serve to add to the aesthetic of this high functional gaming mouse.
