ASUS Strix Mouse, Headset & Keyboard Review

ASUS Strix Peripherals

Software

You can see from the software why we’ve grouped all of the Strix peripherals together. There is a thread running through the design of all of the peripherals. The Strix software is well laid out with everything easily accessible and responsive.

After the amazing amount of recording features we saw from the Cougar 700M software, the macro abilities of the ASUS Strix software are somewhat disappointing, even if they do match 90% of the peripheral software available. As games become more complicated, and software/processors more powerful, the ability to record coordinates seems like it should be something you get with every brand.

Glide Speed Surface

The Glide Speed surface is larger cloth mouse pad with a very fine weave on top and seriously low friction. This isn’t called Speed without good reason. Normally we prefer plainer mouse pads, but the Glide Speed design is abstract enough to be eye catching without being distracting. A tough combination to make.
