The practical test was unfortunately a little sobering, since joystick-like movements over the mouse seem rather unnatural and partly overlap with the normal movements of the mouse and thus become imprecise. It was also particularly annoying that the main keys were triggered several times when tilting sideways, if the fingers were not pushed straight to the front, where they rest on the edge of the case. A constant repositioning of the hand is therefore common practice with this mouse. We ask ourselves whether this can lead to faster pain in the wrist in the long term.
In general the idea of the Pu94 is quite nice, but the control via a dedicated controller / steering wheel for racing games or a flight stick for flight simulations is definitely to be preferred.
RGB LED Illumination
Of course, the Lexip Pu94 has an integrated RGB LED illumination, which is not to be missed in any mouse nowadays. Beside the illuminated Lexip logo on the back of the mouse, a kind of underbody lighting is also generated that looks quite chic, but also shines rather inconspicuously and actually hardly attracts attention if the room is not completely darkened.
Per software allows you to switch between monochrome and two-color lighting and also set a rainbow effect. Speed and brightness can also be adjusted, although the maximum brightness here is still quite dark. Finally, the complete lighting can be individually adjusted for various games or programs.
The Lexip software required to configure all possible settings must first be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website. After installation, the Lexip Pu94 can be optimally configured. The languages English and French are available for this purpose. German can only be found on the packaging and in the user manual.
The software is quite simple, because in the first tab only the DPI number between 50 – 12.000 DPI can be adjusted. With the second tab it looks a little different, because here all buttons of the mouse can be adapted and programmed according to your own ideas. The axes of the movable base can also be adjusted here. Practically, these settings can be made here variably for different games and programs, so that the mouse only needs to be configured once initially. The same applies to the third tab, where the RGB LED lighting is then discussed. As mentioned before, colors and effects can be easily adjusted here.
The basic idea of the software is good, but unfortunately we had some problems from time to time, that the settings could not be saved correctly. Here is still room for optimization.
