GameMax Tornado RGB Gaming Mouse Review – It’s only £7.50!

Rating: 8.0.

We all get asked for technology buying advice from time to time – and KitGuru readers probably get asked more than most people. When a friend bought their kid a laptop for Xmas, the lucky child immediately asked its parents (nicely) for a ‘Gaming Mouse’. After doing their research, they opted for a GameMax Tornado – which cost less than £7.50 with free shipping from Amazon.

We were intrigued and asked if we could intercept the gift for a review before ‘Junior’ got her hands on it. No ‘Golden reviewer' sample with us for sure and with a price point just 50p above that of a Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse, we wanted to ask just one question: Is this mouse any good at all?

Shimmy up to your local peripherals dealer and slap £7.50 unto his desk. He’ll smile and hand you the Microsoft optical default mouse. If you go onto the sites of some major high-end peripheral companies and hit the ‘low to high’ pricing option for RGB mice, you will struggle to find anything under £30.

Enter GameMax.

Given the experience we had in the KitGuru Labs when we first got hands-on with the GameMax chassis, I'm not sure how surprised to be that this company can delivery very affordable peripherals. Let's get the packaging open and see what's inside.
