Pros

  • Lightweight design.
  • Fantastic value for money.
  • Lots of textures for a great visual and sensory experience.
  • Light indicators make it easy to see where you are within the settings.
  • Nice size and ergonomically comfortable.
  • All grips styles are comfortable.
  • Great feedback and resistance in the buttons.
  • No flex or rough edges.
  • Cable is lightweight and kink resistant.
  • On-the-fly LOD.

Cons

  • Matte plastic shell is a bit of a grease magnet.
  • Scroll wheel could be better.
  • Bigger glide pads would’ve worked well.
  • DPI cycle button instead of up and down or back and forward.
  • Low sloping back end leaves a lot of hand on the mouse mat.

KitGuru says: The DM6 Holey S is most definitely worth the price tag but we wouldn’t be paying much more for it. The specs and build quality are good, the design is comfortable and accommodating to most grip styles but there is that slight drag due to the backend slope. For the price point we can’t complain and it’s certainly worth considering if you’re in the market for an ultralight gaming mouse.
