The ASUS ROG Spatha is an impressive wireless MMO gaming mouse. While it doesn't have as many side buttons as some other MMO mice, they're larger, making them easier to press. The mouse itself is quite large and has a unique and angular look, which may not be for everyone. It has a fairly low latency when used wired or wireless, and when you aren't using the mouse, the USB receiver works as a charging base, which is nice. While people with larger hands can use the mouse with any grip type, medium hands may have a harder time with fingertip grip, and small hands likely won't be able to get a comfortable fit with any grip.
The ASUS ROG Spatha is a very good mixed usage mouse. While it's designed for gaming, it feels very well-built and should be comfortable for everyone except those with smaller hands. It also has many programmable buttons which can be good for multimedia creation, office macros, or gaming. Unfortunately, it's quite large and isn't the best for travel.See our Mixed Usage recommendations
