AOPEN GM310 Gaming Mouse Review

AOPEN, a brand known for its affordable gaming accessories, recently announced its newest RGB gaming mouse -- the AOPEN GM310. I have been testing this mouse for the last few days and here is the full review of the same.

Design And Build Quality
 

Design And Build Quality

The AOPEN GM310 is entirely made out of plastic which makes it lightweight. However, I felt that the overall form factor of the mouse seems to be on a larger side. And this might not be an issue for those who have bigger hands. The mouse has a 1.2-meter long braided cable with a gold plated USB-A port on the other end that ensures that the cable can last longer.

The RGB lighting is bright enough and is visible even in a well-lit environment. Even with a bigger form factor it is lightweight and offers a better response to games like CS: Go. The scroller wheel has a patterned finish that offers added grip while using it for weapon zooming on games like GTA: V.

Actual Performance

Actual Performance

There is a physical button to change the DIP and it also changes the LED lighting and the mouse is based on the Pixart 3325 optical sensor.

The mouse has a total of six buttons that can be programmed using proprietary AOPEN software that also allows for lighting customizations. However, to get most of this mouse one has to install a total of three apps and the company could have easily incorporated all the functions into a single app.

Do note that the apps are only available for Windows-powered devices and there is no option to customize this mouse on a macOS or Linux powered machine.

When it comes to real-life performance, the mouse feels responsive and the instant DPI switching app is also useful for mid-DPI switching while playing a game. There is also a physical button to toggle RGB lighting at the bottom of the mouse.

Verdict -- Good Offering

Verdict -- Good Offering

The AOPEN GM31 gaming mouse is one of the good gaming accessories that I have used in recent times. However, it is definitely not the best in the business. If you are building a gaming PC and looking for a gaming mouse that has RGB lighting and support for DPI change and does not want to spend a lot on it, then the AOPEN GM31 gaming mouse is a good alternative.

However, if you have slightly smaller hands and looking for a mouse that can last longer with premium build-quality, the Logitech G502 Hero might be a good choice.
