Overall, I am extremely pleased with the Sharkoon Shark Zone M20 Gaming Mouse. It manages to retain many of the key features found on more expensive gaming mice, it has plenty of customization options and most importantly, it didn’t make me miss my Roccat Tyon.
Build quality is solid enough, it is made of plastic but it doesn’t feel any weaker than the mice at the higher end of the spectrum. The third button running along the right side of the mouse turned out to be particularly useful. I did encounter some placement issues when it came to the two black buttons on the left side of the mouse but aside from that, I have no complaints.
Sharkoon’s software does the job, it is neat, organised and delivers most of the customization options one would expect. However, the lack of flexibility when it comes to DPI sensitivity is concerning, 1600 DPI is my personal bare minimum while I find 3200 to be a little too high.
Having the freedom to choose my own custom DPI setting would have been nice, rather than being bound to a predetermined option.
That said though, I had no problems with the optical sensor and I found tracking performance to be perfectly fine. Honestly, for £25 it is seriously difficult to go wrong.
The Sharkoon Shark Zone M20 Gaming Mouse manages to deliver in spades, it is feature packed and it performs just as well as you could ask for. You can currently pick one up from Amazon for £25.98, at this price, the M20 is an absolute no-brainer.

KitGuru Says: I am seriously impressed with the Shark Zone M20. It delivers everything you could want in a high performance gaming mouse at a low price. Its sensor is limited to 3200 DPI but if that doesn’t bother you, then this is a worthy purchase.
