The G-Wolves Hati is an impressive ultra-light gaming mouse. Its honeycomb design makes it lightweight, but it still feels well-built and doesn't squeak when being used. It's ambidextrous and can be used with any grip type, though it's a bit on the larger side and may be too big for people with small hands. The performance is excellent, with an adjustable CPI and polling rate, so you can customize the mouse to perfectly suit your preferences.
Update 01/14/2020: After updating to the newest firmware, we retested the latency of the mouse and our results showed a fairly significant improvement in click latency. This review reflects that this mouse now has great click latency performance.
Note: This mouse is available in two different versions, with different sensors. We tested the model with the PMW 3360 sensor and don't know how this would compare to the PMW 3389, but we don't expect the results to be significantly different.
The Hati is decent for mixed usage. Its straightforward, ambidextrous design means that while it's designed for gaming, it'll work well for daily or office use as well. It has two programmable side buttons, which will be good for multimedia creation or office use. Unfortunately, it may be too large for people with small hands to use comfortably.See our Mixed Usage recommendations
The Hati is a good mouse for office use. It has excellent ergonomics and should be comfortable for everyone except people with small hands. It can be used with any grip type, and feels quite well-built, making it a good choice for all-day use. It also has two programmable side buttons which can help you get extra work done quickly.
This mouse isn't designed for traveling. Its wired design won't be ideal to work in small spaces like on a plane and it won't fit in most laptop bags.
The G-Wolves Hati is a good mouse for FPS games. It has excellent ergonomics, exceptional CPI and polling rate performance, and all its buttons are programmable. Unfortunately, it's quite large, and people with small hands will likely find it hard to reach all the buttons or get a comfortable grip.See our Video Games (FPS) recommendations
This mouse is good for MMO games. While it doesn't have as many extra buttons as some dedicated MMO mice, all of the buttons it does have are programmable. It also has excellent ergonomics and should be comfortable for most people to use for extended periods. Unfortunately, it's on the larger side, and people with small hands will likely have a tough time reaching all the buttons or getting a comfortable grip.See our Video Games (MMO) recommendations
This mouse is great for ultra-light gaming. While its weight isn't customizable, it's quite lightweight due to its honeycomb design and has excellent ergonomics and CPI performance, making it a good gaming mouse. Unfortunately, it's a fairly large mouse, which likely won't be comfortable for people with small hands.
The G-Wolves Hati looks similar to most other ultra-light gaming mice, with the same honeycomb plastic pattern on top, though it doesn't have it on the side like Finalmouse Ultralight 2 or the Cooler Master MM710. It comes in a variety of colors, including some with gradients, which is a nice touch that makes it stand out a bit. The variant we tested fades from grey to white. The matte finish also feels nice in the hand and gives you a good grip.
The G-Wolves Hati is fairly light, though it's heavier than some other ultra-light mice we've tested, like the Finalmouse Ultralight 2. The weight can't be customized, other than by adding the optional grips or feet that come with the mouse, though this doesn't increase the weight by a noticeable amount.
Like most gaming mice, this mouse isn't the most portable option. It may not fit in most laptop cases, though this won't be an issue for people looking for a gaming mouse for their desk setup.
The Hati feels like a very well-built mouse. It's made of hard plastic and has practically no flex, making it feel very solid, even with the honeycombed plastic. The L/R click buttons have a slight wobble when you shake the mouse, though this likely won't be noticeable in normal use.
The Hati's ergonomics are outstanding and it has a fairly straightforward, ambidextrous design. Unfortunately, it's a fairly large mouse which likely won't be suitable for people with smaller hands. On the upside, its design makes it suitable for any grip type for people with medium to extra-large hands. It also comes with additional latex grips for the sides and L/R buttons if you prefer having extra grip. There is also a more ergonomic shaped model, called the G-Wolves Skoll, but we haven't reviewed it yet. For a similar lightweight gaming mouse with a right-slanted design, check out the Glorious Model D.
This mouse is wired-only.
The G-Wolves Hati's cable is very flexible and lightweight. It doesn't easily get caught on things, and shouldn't kink too much.
The Hati we tested uses the Pixart PMW3360 sensor. There's also another model available with the 3389 sensor, though we aren't sure of the difference in performance.
The Hati's click latency is great. It's low enough that even more serious gamers shouldn't notice any latency issues.
Update 01/10/2020: We previously stated this mouse had mediocre click latency. After updating its firmware, we have updated the review to reflect its greatly improved click latency performance.
The Hati's performance is exceptional. It has a customizable DPI, which will allow you to optimize the mouse to your own preference. It also has three available polling rates: 125, 500, and 1000Hz, which will allow you to have smooth and fluid cursor movement. Lift off distance has a 'high' and 'low' option in the software, though we measured both at 1.2mm.
The Hati has six buttons, all of which are programmable, which is good. It has an L/R click, two buttons on the left side, the DPI switching button on top, and the scroll wheel is also clickable.
The Hati's mouse wheel is mediocre, though pretty standard for gaming mice. It's incremented, which can't be turned off for infinite scrolling like some office mice. It also doesn't have left/right tilt.
The G-Wolves Hati 3360 software is great, though it isn't the easiest to use. This Windows-only software allows you to adjust the mouse's DPI and polling rate, as well as customize all six buttons. The customization can also be saved to the mouse's onboard memory so it'll carry over to other PCs, though unfortunately not Macs.
While the Hati is compatible with both Windows and Mac, you can't reprogram any of the buttons on Mac and will be stuck using the default assignments. Even if you customize the buttons on a Windows machine and switch to a Mac, you'll lose your customization.
The G-Wolves Hati is one of the biggest ultra-light gaming mice we've reviewed. It isn't recommended for people with small hands. Its performance is quite amazing, although there's a model variant with a newer sensor too. This mouse has an amazing lightweight cable. See our recommendations for the best mouse, the best wired mouse, and the best gaming mouse.
The Cooler Master MM710 is a better mouse for ultra-light gaming than the G-Wolves Hati. The MM710 is lighter and has a higher CPI. On the other hand, the Hati feels better built and has lower click latency. While the Hati can be used with any grip type for anyone except those with small hands, the MM710 isn't recommended for people with larger hands.
The Glorious Model D and the G-Wolves Hati are excellent ultra-light gaming mice. They're similarly sized, but the Model D will be better for a claw or palm grip due to its ergonomic slanted design, while the ambidextrous design of the Hati is better for fingertip grip users. The cable of the Model D is slightly better, but the Hati doesn't seem to have any flex to its body like the Model D has.
