The Gladius is back, and this time, it doesn't need a wire! ASUS joined the ultra-low latency wireless game, and they certainly don't just play around. The Gladius II Wireless features a PMW3389 top-of-the-line optical sensor, the ROG-exclusive socket-switch system, a 800 mAH battery, and, of course, a ton of RGB features, including Aura Sync lighting.

I'm often annoyed that prices aren't included on the introduction page, but I get it, a lot of people will stop reading when they see the high prices.

Nice review ,Does the grooves force your fingers to separate ? , I had this problem in Deathadder and I had to stop use it because of the pain, but the idea of clicks in sockets is genius and very tempting.

The review conclusion mentions the "Stiff, thick, braided cable" as a negative. I would like cords to be in the stronger side as all of my current mice have very flimsy cords that often get kinked. To me, a mouse with a stronger, braided cord is a feature.

Still, even with that disagreement, great review!

I can't tell if it'll hurt your fingers, but these buttons are a tad narrower than on a DeathAdder, and I don't think they should cause much of an issue. Trying before buying is always a good idea though.

We all have different preferences (which is cool, imagine if we'd all be alike), albeit the thicker the cord, the more resistance it generates, the harder it will be to properly use the mouse.

I think I could actually include the price on the first page, in the specs table or something. Will think about it, thanks for the suggestion!

too expensive compared to a Corsair Dark Core RGB SE ... (even tho, where i am living, she's 5$ cheaper than it, but she has 3 button less and no Qi recharge capability, no swapable extra pinky rest wing ) what the heck Asus is thinking with these 2 latest products ... their pricing is almost Razer'ish behavior (tho the quality of the Asus one would be more worth it than any product from Razer) heck Even a Roccat Leadr with the standing charging station, which cost ~17$ more is more desirable than that one ( 7 button more and a standup charging station, with the capability of being wired if still needing to use the mouse while charging)

unless tied by a strong loyalty bond to the brand ... it's clearly a bad option.


nonetheless i agree with the other user, as it is a great review (like the ROG Balteus one as well )

(i remember hesitating with the Asus ROG Spatha when i was tied between the Roccat Leadr and Corsair Dark Core RGB SE tho ... but the ROG Spatha was kinda attractive at 130chf while the Leadr was 125chf and the Dark Core SE was 110chf ... when my e-tailer discounted the Dark Core SE to 79chf ... the choice was sealed )

One thing asus has done supremely right is the ability to swap switches
