Sharkoon Light² 180 Mouse Review

Rating: 8.5.

It’s been a while since we last reviewed a product from Sharkoon, but that changes today with our look at the Light2 180. Following in the footsteps of the successful Light200 we reviewed last year, the Light180 offers a symmetrical shape reminiscent of the Zowie S2, in a package that weighs just 63g. It is also very competitively priced at £35 here in the UK, making it well worth closer inspection…

Aside from the obvious difference in the shape, the Sharkoon Light180 is pretty similar to the Light200 on paper. It offers the same swappable top shell, giving users a choice of a solid or perforated panel, while the RGB implementation appears to be consistent across both mice too. Unlike the Light2 200 though, the Light180 comes equipped with PixArt’s PMW 3360 optical sensor, offering a maximum DPI of 12000.
