Choosing a gaming mouse nowadays can be rather difficult. Especially with the many compelling options and special features offered by multiple manufacturers. Above everything, a gaming mouse must be comfortable, durable, have programmable buttons, and a reasonable dpi range. Most modern mice come with extra features such as wireless functionality, adjustable weight, customizable lighting, and even onboard memory for button profiles.That being said, a particular model may tick all the boxes, and still be imperfect. There is a certain X factor when it comes to mice and other gaming peripherals; it just has to suit the individual using it. As a result, this article will necessarily be somewhat subjective. The mouse under inspection is one of the few offered from AZiO. the GM533U appears to have ticked many of the boxes but should you pick this one over the many other alternatives from reputable gaming brands? Benchmark Reviews takes the Levetron GM533U for a spin to find out.

With the immense amount of gaming mice on the market, There's is a constant challenge among manufacturers to offer new features and make their product unique and special. The GM533U has an interesting design that is unlike most other gaming mice: it is visually appealing with it's red accents and lights. Priced at $40, the GM533U jumps into a crowded ring with contenders from Razer, Corsair, and Logitech such as the DeathAdder, the M60, and the G400. It will have to put up a good fight to stand a chance against the heavyweights.

This mouse will be used in typical day-to-day computer activities as well as tested in an array of games. I then express my thoughts about the GM533U and attempt to make comparisons with other mice I'm currently using.

The smooth scroll wheel & shiny slippery plastic is definitely a deal breaker. That said the shiny plastic may not be much of a problem but the smooth scroll wheel... How much extra would it have cost to to have a notched scroll wheel? It makes me wonder if the designers ever used their product at length. I'll look elsewhere.
