The EQEOVGA D10 RGB is an excellent lightweight gaming mouse with a comfortable right-handed shape and two buttons on the left side. It's suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes. However, it's a bit too large for smaller hands using a claw or fingertip grip. It has a decently solid feeling body with honeycomb cutouts to reduce weight. Performance-wise, it has low click latency, and you can adjust the CPI by increments of 100 within a broad range. The lift-off distance is also low, though not as low as on some gaming mice. Unfortunately, the side buttons feel cheap, and you can actuate them by flexing the plastic area below them. The body also creaks with enough pressure applied from the back. Also, while the sensor on our unit is reasonably consistent, it's very inaccurate.

Our Verdict

6.6 Office/Multimedia

The EQEOVGA D10 RGB is adequate for office and multimedia work. It feels decently sturdy, and you can reprogram some of its buttons using the customization software. It also has a comfortable, right-handed shape suitable for most hand sizes and grip types. Unfortunately, it doesn't have any wireless connection options. Also, the scroll wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons and has no free-scrolling mode.

Pros
  • Comfortable right-handed shape suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes.
  • All default button settings work in Windows and macOS.
Cons
  • Wired-only.
  • Scroll wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons and has no free-scrolling mode.
8.3 Video Games (FPS)

The EQEOVGA D10 RGB is a great mouse for FPS gaming. It's very lightweight and has a decently sturdy-feeling body with a right-handed shape suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes. However, it isn't suitable for smaller hands using a claw or fingertip grip. Also, it has a lightweight and decently flexible paracord-like cable and feet that glide smoothly on mousepads and desks. Performance-wise, it has low click latency, and you can adjust the CPI by increments of 100 within a broad range. Unfortunately, the sensor on our unit undershoots the set CPI considerably, and while the lift-off distance is low, some gamers may prefer it lower.

Pros
  • Low click latency.
  • Quite lightweight.
  • Comfortable right-handed shape suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes.
  • Lightweight paracord-like cable.
Cons
  • Honeycomb body exhibits some flex and creaking; can unintentionally activate side buttons by pressing into the body below them.
  • CPI is only adjustable by increments of 100.
7.1 Video Games (MMO)

The EQEOVGA D10 RGB is decent for MMO gaming, but it doesn't have nearly as many side buttons as a dedicated MMO gaming mouse, and you can only program some of them using the customization software. That said, it feels decently well-built and has a right-handed shape suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes. It also has low click latency, a low lift-off distance, and you can adjust the CPI by increments of 100 within a broad range. Unfortunately, the sensor on our unit undershoots the set CPI considerably.

Pros
  • Low click latency.
  • Comfortable right-handed shape suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes.
Cons
  • Not nearly as many side buttons as a dedicated MMO gaming mouse.
  • Honeycomb body exhibits some flex and creaking; can unintentionally activate side buttons by pressing into the body below them.
8.6 Ultra-Light Gaming

The EQEOVGA D10 RGB is an excellent ultra-lightweight gaming mouse. It's very lightweight and feels decently well-built. Its right-handed shape is suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes. It also has a lightweight, decently flexible paracord-like cable and mouse feet that glide smoothly on desks and mousepads. Performance-wise, it has low click latency, and you can adjust the CPI by increments of 100 within a broad range. Unfortunately, the sensor on our unit undershoots the set CPI considerably, and while the lift-off distance is low, some gamers may prefer a lower option.

Pros
  • Low click latency.
  • Quite lightweight.
  • Comfortable right-handed shape suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes.
  • Lightweight paracord-like cable.
Cons
  • Honeycomb body exhibits some flex and creaking; can unintentionally activate side buttons by pressing into the body below them.
5.1 Travel

The EQEOVGA D10 RGB is inadequate for travel use. It's fairly bulky, meaning it may not fit in most laptop cases, and it doesn't have any wireless connection options, so its cable may get in your way in tight spaces like buses, trains, or planes. That said, it feels decently well-built and has a right-handed shape suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes. It also has onboard memory, meaning you can carry over your custom settings on computers without the software.

Pros
  • Comfortable right-handed shape suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes.
Cons
  • Wired-only.
  • Bulky; may not fit in most laptop cases.

The available polling rates on the EQEOVGA D10 RGB are 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, and 1000Hz. The sensor on our unit is reasonably consistent, but it's very inaccurate, undershooting the set CPI by 21% during slow cursor movements and 27.22% during fast cursor movements. You can compensate for this inaccuracy somewhat by setting your CPI 21%-27% higher than your preferred CPI.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The EQEOVGA D10 RGB we tested is black, but there's also a white color variant available. There's an additional version of this mouse with a PMW3360 sensor, which is only available in an orange/black color scheme. However, we haven't tested this version.

Note: We normally provide a photo of the label for our unit. However, this mouse has no label.

Compared To Other Mice

The EQEOVGA D10 RGB is an excellent lightweight gaming mouse. It has a very similar shape to the BenQ ZOWIE EC2 and a honeycomb body that closely resembles the G-Wolves Skoll Large. Unfortunately, our unit's sensor is inaccurate, and it doesn't feel as sturdy as most other lightweight gaming mice. However, it's quite light and has low click latency, which is rare for more budget-oriented ultra-lightweight gaming mice. The EQEOVGA D10 RGB is also somewhat larger than many of its competitors, making it a great choice if you have larger hands or prefer a larger mouse.

For other recommendations, check out our picks for the best lightweight mice, the best gaming mice, and the best cheap gaming mice.

Glorious Model O

The Glorious Model O and the EQEOVGA D10 RGB are excellent lightweight gaming mice, but the Glorious is better overall. The Glorious feels significantly sturdier and has a much more flexible cable and mouse feet that glide more smoothly. It also has a higher maximum CPI and a lower lift-off distance. On the other hand, the EQEOVGA has a lower minimum CPI and somewhat lower click latency. Both mice are suitable for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes. However, the EQEOVGA is suitable for small hands using a palm grip, while the Glorious isn't suitable for small hands using any grip type.

ASUS ROG Strix Impact II Wireless

The ASUS ROG Strix Impact II Wireless is an impressive wireless gaming mouse, while the EQEOVGA D10 RGB is an excellent lightweight gaming mouse. The ASUS connects wirelessly with a USB receiver or with its charging cable. It feels sturdier and has mouse feet that glide more smoothly. It also has a wider CPI range, a lower lift-off distance, and somewhat better click latency. On the other hand, the EQEOVGA is a wired mouse without any wireless connectivity options. It's also much lighter than the ASUS. The ASUS has an ambidextrous shape and is slightly more accomodating to smaller hands, while the EQEOVGA has a right-handed shape and is a bit more accomodating larger-sized hands.

Glorious Model D

The Glorious Model D and the EQEOVGA D10 RGB are excellent lightweight gaming mice with honeycomb bodies and two side buttons on the left. The two mice weigh the same and feel equally sturdy, but the Glorious has a more flexible cable and mouse feet that glide much more smoothly. It also has a higher maximum CPI range. On the other hand, the EQEOVGA D10 RGB has a lower minimum CPI. Both mice are suitable for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes.

Pwnage Ultra Custom Wireless Ergo

The Pwnage Ultra Custom Wireless Ergo and the EQEOVGA D10 RGB are excellent lightweight gaming mice, but the Pwnage is more versatile and has better performance. The Pwnage connects either with its charging cable or wirelessly with its USB receiver. It feels sturdier and has modular pieces that change the look and feel of the mouse. It also has better quality feet, a wider CPI range, and a lower lift-off distance. Comparatively, the EQEOVGA is a wired-only model without any wireless connection options. Both mice are suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes. However, neither is suitable for smaller hands using a claw or fingertip grip.

ROCCAT Kone Pure Ultra

The ROCCAT Kone Pure Ultra and the EQEOVGA D10 RGB are lightweight gaming mice with comparable performance. The ROCCAT feels sturdier and has a thumb rest. It has a more precisely adjustable CPI, a lower lift-off distance, and a wider CPI range.  It also allows you to set an Easy-Shift[+] button to enable a second layer of programmable commands. On the other hand, the ROCCAT has a more flexible cable and mouse feet that glide more smoothly. It also has somewhat lower click latency.  Both mice are suitable for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes.

Pulsar Xlite

The Pulsar Xlite and the EQEOVGA D10 RGB are excellent lightweight gaming mice, but the Pulsar has better performance overall. The Pulsar is lighter and feels sturdier. It also has mouse feet that glide much more smoothly, a wider CPI range, a more precisely adjustable CPI, and a lower lift-off distance. On the other hand, the EQEOVGA has somewhat lower click latency and RGB lighting, which the Pulsar lacks. Both mice are suitable for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes, but the Pulsar is more accommodating to smaller hands.

BenQ ZOWIE EC2

The EQEOVGA D10 RGB has a very similar shape to the BenQ ZOWIE EC2, but the EQEOVGA performs better overall. THE EQEOVGA is much lighter and has a more flexible cable. It also has a wider CPI range, a CPI you can adjust by increments of 100, and customization software, which the BenQ lacks. On the other hand, the BenQ has a marginally more consistent sensor and lower click latency, though most people are unlikely to notice a difference. Unfortunately, it only has four default CPI presets.
