ASUS Republic of Gamers has created a very good mouse in the Strix Evolve.
Having removable removable panels is the standout feature as this simple method allows users to choose between one of four different shapes: ergonomic right-handed, ergonomic left-handed and two ambidextrous options. I’ve not seen a mouse do this before and it is a simply brilliant idea – the Strix Evolve really is a mouse that everybody can use and be happy with.
It is also very successful in other areas, including the RGB lighting. The lighting is certainly quite subtle (quite surprising for ASUS ROG really!) but it looks good and adds a bit of flair.
The choice of a PMW 3330 sensor may raise some eyebrows but in practice I had a great time using it – it may not be the PMW 3360, but I reckon you’re unlikely to notice.
And then we come to price: the ASUS Strix Evolve retails for £54.95, making it a very compelling option. People often talk about the ‘ROG tax’ but honestly, I think this mouse’s feature-set thoroughly justifies that price tag. In short, this is one of the best, if not the best, gaming mice in the sub-£60 bracket on the market right now.

KitGuru says: For a mouse under £60, the Strix Evolve is simply brilliant – I would go as far to say its removable panel feature is a game changer.
