There’s always a first time for everything. NZXT is known for its line of designer cases and now the company is entering the gaming mice market with the Avatar. Following the steps from its cases, the Avatar is also a designer product. But it’s not only easy on the eyes: it delivered a solid gaming experience and quickly endeared itself to us. Despite being a debut, the Avatar didn’t feel the pressure and got a standing ovation like a pro.
The Avatar has an ambidextrous and curved shape. It features a leaner body, shall we say, then its immediate competitors, like the Lachesys from Razer (which is also being tested and we’ll post a review pretty soon). Being a little smaller, the Avatar is recommended to player with medium to small hands. Both finger rests are rubber-coated and very comfortable. Above them you can easily notice the lateral silver buttons (one at each side) in contrast with the dull black rubber coating of the mouse. The scroll wheel and both DPI buttons are kept in a small ditch. Some gaming mice have an illuminated scroll wheel, but the Avatar went with a blue LED running on both sides and other three LEDs to indicate the current DPI level.
