The marketing and design team hit a home run with this one. Gigabyte’s new Force M9 Ice Wireless Mouse has a no-nonsense type aura to it. The name alone makes any avid tech enthusiast’s mouth water. It get’s better from there. The device looks amazing, having the word “Force” tattoo’d right on top. Four red LEDs on the left side of the mouse indicate the DPI setting (mouse sensitivity). The USB wireless nano adapter fits underneath and inside the mouse for travel. On the bottom is a compartment for two AA batteries (Duracell included), even though the mouse is capable of running on just one. The bottom also includes a hard switch to shut the mouse off for travel and battery savings, and a button to sync the mouse with the wireless transmitter.
From there we dive into actual functionality. Unlike a couple other wireless mice I’ve tested and used recently, the DPI button on this mouse features a two way sliding button. Slide the button up, and DPI sensitivity increases. Sliding down will obviously decrease sensitivity. Once you do either command the red LED’s on the side light up, which indicates the mode you’re in. The ergonomics and looks of this mouse is stunning, though a tad narrow at the inner most curve (I’m 6 feet with bigger hands). Even with my preference in bigger mice, I still enjoy the way this feels. The buttons are in a great place and the tracking works incredibly well.
Here’s a snapshot (above) of what the SIM software looks like from Gigabyte.
