Republic of Gamers Gladius Gaming Mouse  

Press Release

ASUS rolled out its workhorse claw-grip gaming mouse to compete with market favorites such as Razer Deathadder 2013 and SteelSeries Rival; the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Gladius. Measuring 126 mm x 67 mm 45 mm (LxWxH), and featuring a fixed weight of 116 g, the ROG Gladius has a mostly-ambidextrous appearance, but is oriented for right-handed gamers. The mouse features a 5-button layout, with a 6th resolution adjustment button. 

Under the hood, is a 6,400 dpi sensor with 50 g acceleration, and 200 ips command rate. All buttons are Omron-made, with the main two buttons being rated for 20 million clicks. The scroll-wheel and middle-click buttons are reinforced. The mouse features an onboard EEPROM that lets you program resolution, acceleration, and macro-maps directly to the mouse, so you don't lose them to a broken SSD. Other neato features include user-replaceable Teflon feet, and two detachable 2 m long USB cables, one that's braided, and another that's slick, rubberized. The overall mouse body is rubberized, with matte elements. Those wanting a glowy logo are covered with a red ROG one.

 

At present pricing and release dates remain are unknown, but ROG fanatics shouldn't expect this mouse to be a budget offering from ASUS.

So it's supposed to compete with mice such as the Rival and DA2013, but features a laser* sensor? I think the main selling point of those two is that they use flawless optical sensors. How a laser* mouse can compete with those offerings is beyond me, given that accuracy is one of the most important features for anyone who takes gaming seriously, as ROG would like to think it's customers do.

And if it's true that it won't be a budget mouse, I can seriously see it following in the footsteps of the EVGA TORQ X10. Not a good start, Asus...Quote

Atleast it doesn't look like the ROG GX1000. How can a mouse that expensive look that crap?

It looks very plasticy from the pic, pretty sure I have seen a mouse that looks exactly the same as it as well which means it is an OEM design, I could be wrong though.

It will be a shame if it is a laser sensor, they all have built in acceleration and angle snapping. optical>laser especially for FPS games, I always had laser mice in the past but when I got my Rival with an optical sensor the difference was very noticeable and it is much more accurate.Quote

Since we're on the subject of Mice I thought I'd rant my annoyance how little Left Handed uses are catered for an I expect exactly the same case here. Currently there's the Razer Death Adder and the only others that are viable are the Ambidextrous ones but there not ideal.

I know there's a much higher percentage of right handed people but surely there must be some Left Handed people that find the choice of selection for Lefties pretty annoying.Quote
