VicTsing MM057 Mouse Review
Time for another review, this time of the VicTsing MM057 mouse! So a while back, my beloved Bondidea N86 mouse decided it had enough of life and wanted to die. I am INCREDIBLY picky about my peripherals, so it was hard for me to find another mouse I liked. I needed something wireless, with 5 buttons, that was also cute. This is a surprisingly difficult combination to find in a mouse. The Bondidea N86 wasn’t available in pink anymore, and I was dead set on pink. It is still available in blue and black, however, and it is a really good mouse, so you can purchase it here if you like blue or black.
After perusing Amazon, eBay, and Google shopping for a long time looking for my perfect mouse, I found the VicTsing MM057. I’d never heard of this brand before, and a few reviews were iffy, but I thought it was cute and hit my criteria so I bought it. Gotta say, good decision.
This mouse is adorable. It’s pink and white, and fits comfortably in my hand. It’s a bit wider than the N86, which at first felt odd but now feels good. It has a little rest ledge for you to put your ring finger. It certainly helps the mouse feel more comfortable. It has that rubbery textured stuff on the right side which is great for keeping the mouse snugly in your hand and not slipping. I just wish the same rubber was on the right side next to where my pinkie grips it, because sometimes if I lift up my hand, the mouse falls out.
It has 5 DPI options: 800, 1200, 1600, 2000, 2400. Chances are you’ll find one that feels right to you. It’s also good for if you play shooters, like Overwatch, because that customization is great for aiming. It comes with a mini USB dongle you just plug into your computer. It’s basically a plug and play mouse. I have had no issues with compatibility on Windows 8.1. A few reviews said that the mouse pointer jumps and the scroll wheel has a mind of its own, but I’ve had it a couple months and encountered no such problems. The 5 buttons are great. I’m sure some people need more, but I only need 5 to heal effectively.
The mouse has an automatic 8 minute shut-off timer. To make it come back on, you just have to click it once and it will work again. I know the shutoff pisses some people off, but I like it. The one other gripe I have is that it doesn’t come with an on/off switch like the Bondidea N86 does. I feel like, even with the automatic shutoff, this would help save on battery life.
Overall, I really like the VicTsing MM057 mouse, and I hope it lasts as long as my old pink Bondidea N86 did. If you’re on the fence about it, I can say it at least is working wonders for me. At less than $10, it was an absolute steal, and proof that you don’t need to spend $150 to get a great mouse for gaming.
