The SteelSeries Aerox 9 Wireless is a novel experiment — and like many novel experiments, it doesn’t fully succeed. This is the first time that a major manufacturer has tried to engineer a honeycomb mouse specifically for massively multiplayer online (MMO) games. While that’s a clever idea, the final product feels a little too cramped and unintuitive to fully deliver on the creative premise.
What makes the Aerox 9 Wireless tick?
The first thing that sets the SteelSeries Aerox 9 Wireless apart from most other mice is how it uses a touchpad to respond to your movements. While most mice have a remote button that you click to activate, the Aerox keeps the button under your control by arrangement. This makes the mouse feel much more natural, and you’re less likely to accidentally click something while you’re trying to use the mouse. It’s also a good idea to keep in mind that your best bet in the sensitivity department is probably your fingers.
Aerox’s design goals
The first thing that sets the Aerox 9 Wireless apart from most other mice is its thoughtful design. The design of the mouse is pretty unusual since most mice have a scroll wheel and buttons that are located on a remote. The scroll wheel makes scrolling easier, but it also increases the amount of setup time, which is a pain when you’re trying to use the mouse. The buttons are cute and small, but they have a nice design and feel that really helps make the mouse feel personal. The button placement on the mouse is a bit odd, however. It has a left-handed stick, which means that if you’re right-handed, you’ll need to hold the stick in both hands to use it. This is a design decision that makes sense since most Game Center games will use the left stick for left-handed players. It would be boring for the stick to be directly under your right fingertips, though, which is where it should be. So, the button placement on the stick is deliberate.
It’s an avatar mouse
The button layout on the mouse is also a signature of the brand. The left and right mouse buttons are located on a stand-alone device, which is great if you want to use the mouse only as a general-purpose mouse. The left and right triggers are built right into the left and right-click options, so you can’t accidentally click the left or right mouse button when you want to click an object or the globe. It also means that you won’t accidentally click the internet whenever you’re looking for something online. The button design also has a couple of advantages. First, you can use the stick to heroically aim the mouse at any visible target. Second, the button design makes the stick feel much more personal, which is good since it’s going to sit on the desk alongside your favorite pieces of furniture. And last but not least, your friends will still be able to use the stick as a weapon when they’re ready to commence the most recent heist.
It has a touchpad
The second thing that sets the Aerox 9 Wireless apart from most other mice is its touchpad. Unlike most mice that have a remote button that sends data to your device, the touchpad on the Aerox 9 Wireless communicates with your computer via Bluetooth. This means that you don’t need to spend an additional charge to connect the mouse to your computer and data is sent directly from your device to the mouse’s touchpad. This also means that you don’t have to remove the stick from the desk and connect it to your laptop to use the mouse. You can use the touchpad on the desk as a collection point for all your devices, which is especially handy if you want to use the stick with multiple computers.
It has five buttons
The fifth thing that sets the Aerox 9 Wireless apart from most other mice is its five buttons. This is the signature feature of the brand, and it comes with a price tag of $299.99. Most mice have three buttons, one on each hand, which makes them feel a little clunky. The five buttons on the stick feel more natural, and you’re less likely to accidentally tap one while using the stick. The stick also has a built-in LED light that helps illuminate the buttons, which makes them easier to see.
It has a scroll wheel
The sixth thing that sets the Aerox 9 Wireless apart from most other mice is its scroll wheel. This thing is a treat to the eyes. It flips between a horizontal and a vertical scroll mode, meaning that you can scroll around the entire room to navigate the menus, choose where you want to focus, and so on. The scroll wheel also doubles as a trackpad, which means that you can use it to navigate between pages and back to the main menu. It also swivels so that you can rotate the stick left and right to flip through different tabs or pages in the browser. This feature makes the scroll wheel ideal for games, where you want to keep an eye on your surroundings and navigate between menus, menus, and more.
It can be used with wireless storage devices
The last thing that sets the Aerox 9 Wireless apart from most other mice is its ability to be used with wireless storage devices. This is especially handy if you’re storing large amounts of data such as photos, videos, and documents on the stick. You can use the stick as a basic spreadsheet, making it ideal for keeping all your important data organized and accessible.
The SteelSeries Rival 500 and 600 tested and tested
The last thing that sets the Aerox 9 Wireless apart from most other mice is its ability to be used with the SteelSeries Rival 500 and 600 gaming laptops. When it comes to power and quality, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better mouse in the market compared to the Aerox 9 Wireless. The everyday player will appreciate the solid build quality of the notebook, combined with the excellent handling and performance provided by the device. The best part about the stick is that it comes with a pretty darn UsefulNotes manual that you can use as a reference for future adjustments and repairs.
