Dream Machines DM5 Blink RGB Gaming Mouse Review

Rating: 8.5.

In a world saturated with gaming peripherals, laced with RGB rainbows, what can Dream Machines bring to the table that hasn’t been done before? The new DM5 Blink certainly has created its own seat amongst the table and demands attention. The thinnest, lightest cable we’ve ever seen, one of the best optical sensors available, RGB zones that even Unicorns will turn to look at and a price point we just can’t get our heads around. Is the DM5 Blink the best budget gaming mouse on the market? We think it is in with a good shout!
