Speedlink Decus Respec Review

👤by Tony Le Bourne Comments 📅20-11-16

The Decus Respec falls into a very competitive price bracket at 39.99, one that is affordable, yet features some top performance. Though most are fairly neutral mice, catering for the smaller, high speed esports style mouse, where as the more common PC gamer may desire a larger, ergonomic palm grip mouse. On top of that, it has 7 programmable buttons that is supported by easy to use software that allows you to make the most of them.

The most surprising thing about the Decus Respec is actually its design/aesthetics. The build quality is surprisingly good, despite the lack of specifics from Speedlink. The rubberised surface feels great, the metallic red finish looks outright awesome, the photos do not do it justice. Then the performance, simply speaks for itself, though it is aging, the 3310 optical sensor is still a firm favourite for gaming performance and is now starting to pop up in the 30-40 price range.

Despite its overall impressiveness, there are some missed opportunities, and it is mostly with the LED lighting. There are 7 selectable colours, or OFF. Though these colours will serve most people in regards to their desires (it has red, light blue, dark blue, green, purple, white, yellow), it could have used full 16.8m customisable RGB LEDs. It could have been brighter, and most of all, we needed to be able to change the colour of the mouse wheel LED which is stuck on blue. LED lighting generally isn't the number 1 reason for picking a mouse, but it is now something that is simply expected. Certainly not a deal breaker, but could have been done a little better.

Overall, this mouse offers fantastic performance, fantastic ergonomics and is something you should seriously consider if you are looking for a palm grip mouse that caters for a full hand grip.

Palm grip gamers, if you are looking for an affordable, eye-catching mouse that neither compromises on performance or build quality, the Decus Respec is one to look out for!

+ Good build quality
+ Ideal for palm grip (full hand ergonomics)
+ Precise and responsive sensor
+ Interesting aesthetics
