Testing the mouse

Reviewing a mouse is tricky (almost like with audio devices). Usually, I use a Mountain Makalu 67, and you must remember that I have massive palms. I liked the experience with the ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition series. The design is very good. It is very light (at 54 g), rather small (but enough for my hands), and should be very satisfying for most users.



As you can see, the polling rate (1000 Hz) is achieved and stays close to the value that the manufacturer declares.
For gaming tests, I’ve used:

  • PUBG,
  • Battlefield 1,
  • Call of Duty: WW2

The Asus ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition series did excellent in all cases because it’s responsive. The main buttons are very friendly and responsive; the switches have a prominent click and a pleasant sound. The (two) side buttons are easily reachable and very responsive. The 36K DPI sensor does its job well. Overall five buttons are available; all total the Asus Armoury Crate. We didn’t have to go further than 3200 DPI for our gaming needs. The wireless connection was flawless; there was nothing to complain about in the latency and responsiveness department. The range is about 10 meters; you usually wouldn’t need that. Connecting up to three compatible devices to a single wireless adapter is possible in Bluetooth mode. Movements are registered as they should be. We did not encounter undesirable phenomena in the tests or when gaming (such as the pointer moving by itself), and the level of precision was high. The sensor responds very well with no noticeable interpolation or angle snapping. DPI selection works friendly and fast: you click the DPI button.



There’s not too much to write about the lighting effects. There is only one “zone” (the scroll wheel). As the target user, no remarks on this topic will be aware. The grip is very good, but you must remember, although the mouse is compatible with the palm, claw, and fingertip grip styles – the size is relatively small (but okay for my hands, but hey – I’m a 2-meter-tall guy). The battery life is close to the advertised result; it could reach about 65 hours with the lighting enabled (instead of 78). The battery is possible to be charged via the bundled USB cable. It is good to have rubberized grips on the sides instead of plastic ones; Asus provides them, and you can swap them.


Also, the Asus Armoury Crate would need some upgrades, as some competition offers more in that department and is quite heavy on resources.
