Overall, I did enjoy my time with the Xtrfy XG-M2 Ninjas in Pyjamas Edition gaming mouse. It uses a solid sensor for tracking (Pixart PMW 3310), it feels good in the hand and provides a decent level of grip. However, it did let me down in some other areas, such as the customisation options.
There was no software for this particular mouse and while I can live without lighting options, acceleration curves and changes to lift-off distance, I do personally think that allowing users to choose their own CPI levels should be an essential feature. There is no ‘standard’ set of CPI/DPI options that will keep everyone happy.
Aside from that though, I did appreciate the overall design of the mouse and the Pixart 3310 sensor did not give me any issues. The curves and textured sides gave me a good level of grip and the mouse is incredibly lightweight, allowing for swift, effortless movements and glides across various mouse surfaces.
Overall construction of the mouse felt solid, the plastic certainly doesn’t feel cheap and the buttons aren’t particularly mushy. However, the scroll wheel does rattle a bit, so that is one area where things could be tightened up a bit.
When it comes down to it, the Xtrfy XG-M2 is a solid choice and for £43.99 at Overclockers UK, it is be worth considering as long as you can look past the locked sensitivity levels.
- Pixart 3310 sensor.
- Designed and constructed well.
- Good price.
- Locked CPI levels could be a deal breaker for some.
KitGuru Says: If you can look past the locked sensitivity levels, then the Xtrfy XG-M2 is a worthy mouse that offers an attractive design and decent performance.
