While looking for a simple gaming mouse that I mainly wanted to use for office applications, I stumbled across the AUKEY KM-C1. I had the visually and ergonomically appealing device sent to me by the manufacturer and have been testing it for several months now. In this review I would like to show you my experiences with the AUKEY KM-C1 gaming mouse. Do you have any questions or comments? Then please leave a comment.
What makes this input device a mouse for video games are, above all, the rapid fire or double-click button (to the left of the left mouse button), the two buttons for the thumb and the DPI button, with which you can set the speed of the cursor, mouse pointer or the mouse can control the in-game camera perspective. I tried the "AUKEY Professional Gaming Mouse" on a Windows laptop and an Apple MacBook Pro.
On the latter, of course, the left and right buttons for the corresponding clicks (selection, opening, calling up menus, etc.) as well as the double-click button work. Without an additional program like USB overdrive or SteerMouse however, the side buttons are useless. However, the DPI setting as well as the mouse wheel work.
On the Windows computer, all of the buttons did their job immediately and without an additional app for more detailed settings. The two side buttons help when using browsers such as Explorer for files and web browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, etc. by executing the forward and back commands. Depending on the computer game, commands and processes for the keys can be assigned in its settings. Double-click, DPI settings and the three main buttons or the left-click and right-click buttons and the mouse wheel also worked well. As a test, I played the versions of Age of Empires II HD, Counter Strike: Nexon, Civilization V and Crossing Souls (all via Steam) under Windows and macOS.
The mouse does a good job in everyday office work. And even if you don't play too complex games or prefer to use the keyboard for commands and options, I can recommend the AUKEY KM-C1. Under macOS on the Apple computer, you may need an additional app to be able to use all the buttons - the system settings of the operating system are still not open to gaming mice. Under Windows (tested with Windows 10) everything works fine. So if you want to buy an ergonomic gaming mouse at a low price, then you should definitely consider this model. I can also recommend it for the office and for private use this AUKEY USB hub and this AUKEY bluetooth speaker.
