Just last month NZXT unveiled a new gaming mouse to replace the discontinued Avatar. The Avatar S is NZXTs 2nd peripheral to date and features a 1600 DPI Laser sensor. A stark contrast to the 2600 DPI optical sensor found on the original Avatar gaming mouse. This new release hopes to offer a cheaper, more affordable option for gamers with an on-the-fly DPI adjustment system and 16kb of onboard memory for customisation via software. Available in black or white the Avatar Seeks to offer an alternative, sylish look to the desk whilst pursuing the white craze that seems to be dominating the computer case market.

Will the Avatar S be able to live up to the good reputation of its older counterpart? Lets begin our analysis of NZXTs Avatar S.
