Rosewill Jet RGM-300 Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Average mouse, above average customer service 01/22/2014

This review is from: Rosewill Jet RGM-300 Gaming Mouse

Pros: -not the most expensive gaming mouse
-good quality braided cable, gold-plated connector
-the forward button on the thumb-side of the mouse is textured, making it easily distinguishable from the back button
-8 2.4g weights included
-very good customer service

Cons: -not the cheapest gaming mouse
-no software
-I have small hands, and I would still call this a small mouse. I can imagine this mouse being way too tiny for someone with larger hands
-DPI switch only cycles, meaning you have to click twice to go "down" a DPI setting
-all weights are the same weight, meaning you can essentially only make it lighter unless you buy more, heavier weights

Other Thoughts: I wrote a previous review with one less egg noting how the mouse had reviewed with one of the lights DOA. I remarked how the cost of RMA'ing it just didn't justify doing it, especially since it was 1/4 of the cost.

My comments on the mouse from the last review still stand: it's an overall average entry level gaming mouse; I chose it primarily for its design and lighting. The textured 'forward' button on the lefthand side is great. But for this cost, you could really shop around and find something that suits you - maybe that's this mouse, ultimately.

That said, I am submitting another review with an increased score for the great customer service I received from Rosewill. They replied to my previous review and asked me to contact their support. Having poor experiences with support in the past, I was not very hopeful but something told me to give it a go anyway. After a responsive correspondence via email, I as asked for my Newegg invoice for the mouse, and a picture clearly depicting the problem with the mouse. It was as simple as that, and the picture showed the problem clear enough. Rosewill shipped me a new mouse free of charge. It is very uncommon, in my opinion, to have such wonderful customer support from a manufacturer. I am very satisfied. Rosewill clearly cares about its customers.

3 out of 5 eggs Mediocre product for the price 01/12/2014

This review is from: Rosewill Jet RGM-300 Gaming Mouse

Pros: -not the most expensive gaming mouse
-good quality braided cable, gold-plated connector
-the forward button on the thumb-side of the mouse is textured, making it easily distinguishable from the back button
-8 2.4g weights included

Cons: -not the cheapest gaming mouse
-no software
-I have small hands, and I would still call this a small mouse. I can imagine this mouse being way too tiny for someone with larger hands
-DPI switch only cycles, meaning you have to click twice to go "down" a DPI setting
-all weights are the same weight, meaning you can essentially only make it lighter unless you buy more, heavier weights
-one of the lights in the mouse was DOA

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for, really. I knew going in that Rosewill is "the best of the worst" kind of brand. Still, I was looking for a budget gaming mouse and this is the one I settled on in part because of the red lighting, which matches my PC's theme.

I was very disappointed to find that one of the lights responsible for lighting the mouse (the one on the left side, in fact) was dead on arrival. It may seem a trivial issue, but it makes the lighting very asymmetrical. While the rest of the mouse is pleasantly bright, the left is as dull as if there were no lighting at all.

I of course tried to RMA it, but I eventually decided the cost of shipping the mouse back (about 1/4 of the cost of the mouse itself) was simply not worth it.

So while the rest of the mouse does work fine, and it's not an awful mouse, as my review title states it's really just a mediocre choice for the gamer on a budget. Try looking around some more. It doesn't really have any standout features, perhaps apart from its braided cable which is uncommon at this price, which sets it above other budget mouses.
