Aftershock Hexar mouse review

The Aftershock Hexar was one of the prizes we received during last December’s AMD x Aftershock streamer challenge, and I’d been meaning to test it out. I finally had a couple of weeks to play around with the mouse and put it through its paces, and here are my thoughts.

The good

The Hexar feels good in your hand, regardless of whether you’re more of an arm or a wrist player. The grooves on the middle surface of the mouse was an interesting touch, and certainly different from the more solid mice that I’ve been using for the last couple of years.

I’d have to say that the mouse felt very responsive, and click the buttons had a crisp feel to them even after roughly 20 hours of playing Call of Duty: Warzone and Halo: Infinite. The Hexar also had no problems gliding up and down my Omnidesk, which is important to me since I don’t use a mouse mat.

Yes, the Hexar comes with its own RGB lights, but I’ve always cared more about substance than flash, and Aftershock’s mouse works just fine for gaming.

The not so great

This is more of a personal preference issue, but I actually found the Hexar to be too light. I’ve spent the bulk of my gaming time using two different mice, one that weighs 75 grams and one that weighs 128 grams. The Hexar is listed at 69 grams, but for some reason feels even lighter than that.

While the holes in the mouse were interesting to look at, I also feel that they pose a bit of a potential danger to clumsy gamers like me who have, on occasion, accidentally spilled drinks near my mice.

Verdict

If you like light mice, the Hexar is a good bet. Its price point of SGD 59. I think it’s good value and will do the job. I give it a solid 4 out of 5.
