Cheap gaming peripherals are a dime a dozen. With RGB lighting, additional buttons and even more stuff, we get almost everything thrown at us. The Inter-Tech Nitrox GT-100 RGB gaming mouse is in a very low price range, as it can be found for under 10 Euros. What can the mouse do? We test it for you.

Packaging and scope of delivery
Despite the price, the Inter-Tech Nitrox GT-100 RGB arrives to us in a really fancy packaging. On the box we find a picture of the mouse and on the back we find the technical details. We can even take a look at the mouse beforehand, as the box can be opened.
In the box itself we only find the mouse, nothing more. But more is honestly not necessary at this price.
Workmanship and design
In the course of testing, we had to keep reminding ourselves that the mouse has a really small price tag. Of course, we can’t expect a killer workmanship with the highest quality materials.
Nevertheless, Inter-Tech can convince us with the GT-100. The mouse doesn’t feel really high-end, but the workmanship is right. The gaps are correct and there are no sharp edges. The LED strip is also well integrated into the case.
The GT-100 RGB is completely black. Only the RGB strip and the illuminated logo stand out. Important to mention: Due to the thumb rest located on the left side, the GT-100 is exclusively suitable for right-handed users. Three of the seven programmable macro keys are also located on this side. However, we will go into more detail about these later.
Software & RGB Lighting
The software for the Inter-Tech Nitrox GT-100 RGB is unfortunately not a feast for the eyes. It does what it is supposed to, but that is sufficient. You can create macros and deposit them on one of the seven available buttons.
The RGB lighting is also controlled via this. Unfortunately, you can only select pre-made effects, but you can’t set a constant color, for example. However, the RGB strip itself is consistently and evenly illuminated.
Ergonomics & Practice
Honestly, we have to say that the mouse can really convince. Yes, it is not a high-end product, but it feels really good in the hand. The size of the mouse plays a big role in the ergonomics, here the GT-100 RGB is in the midfield, but it can also be used by users with large hands without any problems. Especially the thumb rest can convince.
In the practical test, Inter-Tech’s gaming mouse comes off just as well. The mouse clicks feel good and are recognized directly. The click noises are kept within limits and are nothing overly loud. The GT-100 RGB gets a small deduction for a macro button on the left side. Since the button is quite smooth, it was pressed accidentally once or twice in the test. However, this shouldn’t be a problem anymore with some familiarization.
The Inter-Tech Nitrox GT-100 RGB can really convince us, especially considering the price. So then both eyes can be squeezed shut when we look at the software or the material used. After all, we’re holding a mouse in our hands that costs less than ten euros.
The GT-100 RGB fulfills its purpose, that’s what it’s there for. If you have to keep an eye on your money right now, we can warmly recommend the mouse from Inter-Tech.
