So, This review is after properly testing the ADATA XPG Primer mouse for more than a month. I brought this mouse from Amazon.in for 1999 Rs on 11-Aug-2021. The reason why I brought this mouse was because it had a PMW 3360 sensor inside it, the sensor which is found in the High-end FPS gaming mouses like Glorious Model O and D, BenQ Zowie EC1, Cooler Master MM531 and etc. These mouse are priced So high and most gamers can't afford a gaming mouse like that and also most people don't want to waste that much money on a mouse.
In this review, I will be sharing what I like about this mouse and also what I don't like about this mouse.
Packaging is really good and unique
Inside the box, you will get a Warranty guide, a Quickstart guide, some Stickers from XPG titled "GAME TO THE XTREME" and The Adata XPG Primer mouse with a gold plated USB type A (I guess it is USB 2.0).
The first drawback of this mouse is that it does not come with a driver CD. At that time I was like who in the world will now have a CD/DVD Rom in a Gaming Pc, I will download it from their official website but I was shocked to see that this gaming mouse does not have a driver on their official website of the XPG Primer.
The driver has most of the features a regular mouse has but the driver is missing one big important thing "The option to change Polling rate".
Setting up macros is very simple in this mouse and I must say it was the best and easiest interface I have ever seen.

The mouse has 8 lighting options starting from red, yellow, green, light blue, blue, pink, white and rainbow.
I have said it is a bad mouse at the end only because it felt cheap and the grip was not good. all other aspects of this mouse were really amazing. The mouse has smooth tracking making it Ideal for FPS Gaming.
I played Splitgate and Valorant with this mouse and I was happy with the aim and tracking of this mouse.
