We received a few of the products from the new Thermaltake ARGENT series. So stay tuned because more from this series will follow soon. Today I will be reviewing the Thermaltake ARGENT M5 Wireless RGB Gaming Mouse. Wired or Wireless the age old question. The both of them have there advantages but it depends on your use. If you use your mouse all the time and you go wireless prepare for charge levels. If you go with the wired version, well who like wires? We wont go into details why I prefer one over the other but both have pros and cons.

 

 

Now with particular mouse you get one great sensors, the PMW3335, which is basically a lower powered 3360. The battery life on this mouse is amazing and if you turn off the RGB you can get up to 200 hours of battery life utilizing Bluetooth. The least battery life you can expect is about 36 hours utilizing the 2.4GHz connection and full RGB. Still not bad for utilizing a stronger connection and lights. Another amazing feature of this mouse is the fact that it is ambidextrous. So if you are a lefty looking for a new gaming mouse look no further! There are numerous other features of this mouse I will get to later in this review so lets continue on through the next few pages and see everything this mouse has to offer.

Packaging

The packaging differs a little from the other flavors from Thermaltake. We have basically all the same info around the box as the others I have received in the past. We just have a darker color scheme when it comes to the over tone of the box and graphics. You can guarantee that the keyboard is safe during the shipping process as always.

Conclusion and Verdict

In conclusion, the Thermaltake ARGENT M5 Wireless RGB Gaming Mouse is built for all users. The shape is fully symmetrical. This means the buttons are also symmetrical. This is great if you use your mouse left handed. This also limits the overall ergonomic shape. The mouse is not curved or shaped to fit either hand. Most mice that aren’t ambidextrous have a shape that mimics a tilted palm. The mouse is still comfortable for being symmetrical. The button placement wasn’t terrible although it is going to take practice utilizing the buttons on my ring finger side. I usually use my ring finger to pull the mouse left and now having buttons there is going to be an adjustment. I typically use a claw grip style and in intense gaming sessions I apply a lot of pressure to the mouse body with my thumb, ring, and pinky fingers. So if you have a similar grip then the buttons may interfere with your current ring finger placement. If you aren’t used to having buttons on the right hand side of your mouse then there will be a small learning curve, you will need to adjust to.

As far as performance goes this mouse is loaded with features. The sensor is one of the better ones you will find available with DPI adjustments ranging from 100-16,000. All being able to be customized through the iTAKE software. The Omron switches felt great. You could click the switches all the way up, even towards the back of the finger rest, I could still get the click. You have a lot of clickable real estate. The smooth matte  top coating is resilient. The sweat from my palms evaporated away with minimal signs of fingerprints or sweat. The mouse wheel is something worth mentioning. The scroll wheel is aluminum and has a very textured grip. I nice change from a rubber or plastic material. All this with a 1ms polling rate you can rest assured this mouse won’t let you down in the heat of the battle.

The lights aren’t over done which is great because that can really drain your battery. As you saw in the pictures on the previous page the lights are bright and has great color that is also full customizable in the software.

The Thermaltake ARGENT M5 Wireless RGB Gaming Mouse can be found directly from Thermaltake for around $99.99 USD.
