Closer Look: AZiO Levetron GM533U

The Levetron series from AZiO offers a set of input devices aimed mainly at gamers. The GM533U is one of two gaming mice available.There is no fancy packaging with this product. Opening the box reveals the mouse, the software CD, and the user manual.

The GM533U does fairly well in the aesthetics department with its red accents and lights. It also features a braided cable and a gold plated USB connecter. On the top surface, the mouse sports a rubbery, matte finish. The sides are plastic with ribbed rubber pads.

This mouse may appear to be ambidextrous, but it is really designed for right-handed use. Four buttons are strategically placed on a separate platform from the left-click button. Three are programmable and one is the designated DPI switcher. On the right lies the DPI indicator light that will flash with a frequency proportional to one of the three DPI options: a low frequency flash appears when the 800dpi setting is selected and it flashes quickly when the highest dpi is selected.

The ability to adjust weight is becoming an increasingly popular feature in gaming mice. The GM533U allows weight modification in 5 gram increments. Personally, I never appreciated this feature; I would simply adapt to the weight of a mouse.

However, with this particular model, it felt quite heavy fully-loaded and I was grateful of the option to remove half of the weights, making it much more comfortable to use.

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.
