Gigabyte Aorus M5 Gaming Mouse Review

Rating: 8.0.

It is safe to say the Aorus M5 comes packed with features. Not only does it sport the PMW 3389 16000 DPI optical sensor, there's also an adjustable weight system and RGB Fusion lighting – all in a large, ergonomic body suited to both palm and claw grip styles. With a retail price of around £50, is this a mouse that has it all for a price that won't break the bank?

KitGuru says: The Gigabyte Aorus M5 mouse performs well, has plenty of features and comes with competitive price, however we think it is let down by the Aorus Engine software.
