Ozone Xenon Gaming Mouse 3

Ozone Xenon Gaming Mouse Review

The Package

The Xenon ships in a neat, little box that allows you to feel for the general shape of the mouse. Once you break it out of its box, you immediately notice the lack of side buttons, which is quite unusual for a modern gaming mouse.

With the Xenon, you also get a driver CD and a setup guide.

The cable is totally simple and seems well made. The strain reliefs on both ends seem adequate.

Closer Examination

The design of the mouse is very nice. It looks simple, but has some distinct features like the spline that runs right down the center of the mouse. The soft-touch finish is well executed and will probably last a very long time.

There is one noticeable issues with the Xenon and that is the alignment of its mouse feet. The mouse we got had a slight wobble when placed on a hard and perfectly flat surface. This can be fixed by quickly running it over some abrasive surface, but it is an issue that should not be there in the first place.

The Xenon mouse follows the recent trend with its addition of LEDs behind the scroll wheel.

Equipping a gaming mouse with the Avago ADNS-3090 is a great choice. It has more than enough resolution for anyone, a really low lift-off-distance (LOD), and its failure speed is way above what you can reach under normal circumstances. It is, of course, an optical sensor so the performance will vary from surface to surface. The ADNS-3090 in the Ozone Xenon performed well on the following surfaces: SteelSeries 9HD, ModMyMachine SlamePad, and Ozone Shooter L. It performed reasonably well on our reference white table top.
