To wrap things up, the Levetron GM533U is aesthetically appealing to the eye. With the red accents, illuminated red buttons, its soft rubber feel, and its solid housing we were pleased with its overall quality. In our past experience with rubber coating on mice, we found that it tends to wear off over time, especially if you are gaming intensely with the mouse for long. While it’s not completely bad, it’s something worth mentioning and for those who have experienced this. While we obviously haven’t experienced that just yet, we feel over a lengthy time of use it might become a concern.
The mirror black housing and rubber coating finish on the domed-shape shell really give a nice contrast to the red illumination on the macro buttons and side. From a software stand point, Azio did a great job, however more instruction set on the programming of macro keys will be vastly welcomed. Still, the software was not hard to understand and most of the basic features were easy. As we breezed through the control panels we were up and running within minutes. The DPI “on the fly” settings are great if you are a gamer that doesn’t need all the fancy buttons, but you still want to be able to adjust your speeds. The Levetron GM533U was not designed to match those larger multi function MMO mice, but the capabilities of its macro set-up will come along way for gaming. The adjustable weight settings really help to gain control of your device. Also, the adjustable DPI of up to 5000 dpi really made movement easy. While we did miss some of the basic buttons for internet surfing, it wasn’t a big deal as we programmed one of the macro keys for that.
Overall, we gave the Azio Levetron GM533U mouse the Pure OC Good Hardware Award. At the price point of $39.99 on Newegg.com, this could put the Logitech G9x we compared it to out of its game.
