EKSA has a comprehensive lineup of gaming headsets, ranging from entry-level headphones to more premium models which feature virtual surround sound and a host of other features. But EKSA isn’t just a gaming headset brand as it also carries a selection of gaming mice, one of which is the EM600 RGB Advanced gaming mouse.
As the name implies, this gaming mouse is fairly light given its size. This means the mouse should be a good match for FPS titles where the right flick can make all the difference. Though aside from being lightweight, the mouse also features RGB lighting and a 12400 DPI sensor. While these are not exactly unique features, these are rather impressive considering that the EM600 can be had for under PHP 1,500.
Want to know more about the EM600? Here are some of the top features that make it a gaming mouse that might just be your next gaming partner.
Good Size and Shape
To start, the EM600 is a right-handed mouse that features a nice texture, grippy sides, and a shape that most gamers will likely find comfortable. What’s great about the overall size and shape is that it’s right in the middle of the road, meaning it can accommodate all kinds of mouse grips.
The EM600 is big enough that it can be used with a palm or a claw grip comfortably by most users. Meanwhile, players who prefer a fingertip grip should also still find the mouse easy to use with their preferred grip as it is not too big, not to mention that it’s a light mouse. Of course, your mileage may vary as hand sizes can differ massively, but for most users, this should be a solid middle ground in terms of size.
As mentioned above, the EM600 is a lightweight gaming mouse. At just 90 grams, the EM600 is a bit lighter than the other gaming mice that we’ve tried.
Thanks to this lightweight design, the EM600 is a great match for fast-paced games such as FPS titles. This is because having a lightweight mouse makes it easier to do flick shots – a flashy and useful skill to master. A lightweight mouse is also a good match for other esports titles such as MOBAs. Plus, the light weight means you can bring it with you everywhere without weighing your bag down more.
Nice Feeling Buttons
Aside from the light weight, the EM600 also features two main buttons that provide a nice tactile feel, making them feel great to use for games where intense mouse-clicking is the way to go (such as MOBAs like Dota or ARPGs like Diablo). Plus, the main buttons use mechanical switches that are rated for 20 million clicks, meaning they should have great longevity.
The main mouse buttons are not the only ones that feel great though as the DPI +/- and the two side buttons also have a good feel to them. On top of this, the mouse has a total of eight programmable buttons, including one red button on the side which you can use as a stabilizer in-game for sniper rifles.
Easy Switch Button for RGB lighting
While you may not notice it at first, the EM600 has a small button at the bottom. This button acts as an easy switch for the mouse’s RGB lighting.
The EM600 features 12 pre-programmed RGB lighting modes, ranging from pulsing, and breathing, to even a mode that lights the mouse up for every mouse click. While you can tweak these settings via EKSA’s software, you can use the Easy Switch button to change the lighting profiles without having the software installed (great if you’re gaming on a new PC). Even with the software, the button is also nice to have so that you can switch lighting profiles on the fly, without needing to go to the software.
The EM600 works as a plug-and-play device, but to get the most out of it, downloading and installing the EKSA software is recommended (you can get it through the EKSA website). While seemingly simple, the software has all the features you need, including DPI settings, lighting profiles, and button programming.
Best of all, unlike other software which insists on you downloading updates or creating an account, EKSA keeps it simple with the EM600 software as it is easy to install and doesn’t require anything else.
