It's annoying when certain jazzed up peripherals are branded as 'Gaming' especially when they have no particular benefit to gamers. SPEEDLINK on the other hand have made a very good effort with the KUDOS RS Gaming Mouse, while it is very flashy looking with its red metallic finish it also packs some good features too.

The KUDOS RS features include a 5700 dpi laser sensor, on-the-fly sensitivity and profile switching, 7 programmable buttons and a 4D scroll wheel to name but a few. Here at Benchmark Reviews many of us are enthusiastic gamers and we strive for quality and functionality just as much as you guys.


Many gaming peripheral companies have already established their name and continue to release quality hardware year after year but SPEEDLINK have a way to go yet if they want to play with the big boys. Gimmicks and shiny plastic won't cut muster here at Benchmark Reviews, so we aim to put the KUDOS RS Gaming Mouse through its paces and see if it has what it takes to earn our respect as a true 'Gaming' peripheral.
