Endgame Gear XM1r Mouse Review

Rating: 8.5.

It’s been almost two years to the day since we first looked at the Endgame Gear XM1, and today we are following that up with a review of the XM1r. Using the same shape as the original model, the XM1r sports an improved PixArt sensor, updated primary buttons and a snazzy translucent shell. Retailing for £49.99, this is very much a mid-range mouse, so let’s see what it has to offer.

If you’re unfamiliar with Endgame Gear, the Berlin-based company was established in 2019 and so far has brought out three models of mice (XM1, XM1 RGB and XM1r), alongside some mousepads and a mouse bungee. All three of its mice are variations on the XM1 design, but it has proved quite popular amongst the mouse enthusiast community, so let’s take a closer look at the XM1r.
