Design and Workmanship
The angular design of the Riotoro Aurox is well combined with the protruding elements and the RGB lighting. She looks very sleek and is a real eye-catcher. The screwed cable holder in silver additionally provides that extra something. The workmanship is of very high quality, even if all components are made of plastic.
The RGB lighting referred to is not limited to the logo, but is also emitted along the edges and transitions. The colors can be adjusted in the software. The color is also used to indicate which of the eight DPI settings has been selected.
The Aurox Gaming software is easy to understand and very clearly designed. There are four profiles that can be changed in three categories. In the first tab, all eight buttons can be assigned a new predefined function or their own macro.
The second tab allows you to adjust the performance settings. The DPI can be defined in up to eight steps per profile. From 100 DPI up to 10,000 DPI, the values can be set in steps of 50.
In addition, the acceleration can be adjusted in eleven stages to suit individual requirements. Of course, you can also set the standard sampling rate from 1000 Hz to 500, 250 or 125 Hz.
The third and last tab gives you the possibility to adjust the RGB lighting. It is possible to define a color change of up to eight colors. You can use prefabricated ones, or you can choose your own mixture. In addition, the brightness can be reduced by one level or switched off. Only a “Breathing” effect is offered as an effect, but a colour can also be set in permanent lighting.
In practice, it always depends strongly on one’s own feelings and preferences. That’s why you always have to try it out yourself. However, we were able to determine the following for ourselves.
The mouse is specially designed for right-handers, but it is not ergonomically shaped. So after a relatively short time I had the feeling that my hand wasn’t relaxed, but always a little tense on the mouse. With a different handle, however, this may be different. In addition, all keys are easy to reach and operate.
Riotoro Aurox Black Test Conclusion
With the Riotoro Aurox you can’t go wrong with the technical values and the price of Product. The quality is good and the many features convince all along the line. But the price also has its disadvantages. The ergonomics leave something to be desired. The RGB lighting is convincing, but the setting options are not as varied as other mice offer.
All in all, the Riotoro Aurox has everything you need, but not in perfect form, which is reflected in the price. It should also be noted that you can also buy the Riotoro Aurox in white. If you don’t care about the colors, you can even save 20 €.
