One of the special things about this mouse is that Trust built it using kailh switches (yes, the same brand known for mechanical keyboard switches), which are claimed by the manufacturer to have durability greater than 80 million clicks; If we take as an example that on average in a League of Legends game about 8,000 clicks are made, we are talking about about 10,000 games. With a usage of a normal user who uses the PC for gaming, the average is 10,000 clicks per day (that is, if you play a lot every day), so the durability could be more than 20 years .
Trust the GXT 980 REDEX, a mouse made to last
|Trust the GXT 980 REDEX|
|Sensor||PixArt PMW3325 (200-10,000 DPI)|
|Speed / Acceleration||1000Hz
|Cable||USB 2.0 included|
|connectivity||Wireless (2.4GHz RF)
We are, as you can see by looking at the table of technical specifications that we have placed above this paragraph, in front of a wireless mouse with the usual 2.4 GHz radio frequency technology, very reliable and which avoids interference with other wireless devices. The mouse mounts a PixArt sensor, which in itself gives us a guarantee of quality, and more specifically the PMW3325 model which is capable of providing a maximum sensitivity of 10,000 DPI with an acceleration of 20 G and a capture speed of 100 IPS .
The Trust GXT 980 REDEX has a very interesting particularity, it is that in addition to supporting up to 1000 Hz of polling frequencythis is configurable between 125Hz and 1000Hz through a physical switch on the mouse itself, so it will allow us to have minimal latency when we are playing, but when we are not we can easily l lower to save battery power and improve device battery life.
Speaking of autonomy, one of the strengths of this gaming mouse is that, according to the manufacturer, it offers up to 50 hours of battery life with a single charge. Of course, it must be kept in mind that the data provided by the manufacturer is always in optimal conditions (lighting off, and in this case surely with the polling frequency at a minimum), but we are still talking about a pretty decent battery life. The mouse logically supports charging while playing, so if it starts complaining about low battery, we can connect the charging cable (which is USB-C on the mouse side) and continue to use it without any problems.
Another peculiarity of this mouse is that, as we indicated in the introduction, Trust relied (pardon the redundancy) on the manufacturer Kailh for the switches (they do not indicate that it is only the two main buttons, so it’s assumed that at least 5 of the 6 buttons (all except the mouse wheel, which usually has a different button) are made by this.These buttons have up to 80 million click expectation life, so we will have a mouse for a very, very long time.
On the other hand, at the level of the design we can see that the Trust GXT 980 REDEX is quite classic, with a symmetrical and rounded design but that it is designed for right-handers for the simple fact that it only has side buttons on the left side, where right-handed users place their thumb, while the right side lacks buttons.
Speaking of buttons, all six buttons on this mouse are configurable via software, and in fact we can also configure the mouse lighting via software (in the scroll wheel and in the lower back area, where we place the palm) with the 16.8 million colors of the RGB spectrum. Likewise, it also supports the configuration and assignment of macros, so that we can have complete control of the functions of the mouse in a simple way: in addition, the mouse incorporates memory, so we can save its configuration in the mouse itself so that we keep our settings even if we connect it to another PC on which we do not have the software installed.
To finish talking about the specifications of this mouse, we must mention its connectivity. Trust includes a USB dongle so you can use it wirelessly on any PC, which also means the GXT 980 REDEX will work with any other device that natively supports mouse use, including systems Windows, Linux and Mac, but also others like Android and even some televisions or consoles. The communication is done by radio frequency at 2.4 GHz, a technology of proven reliability and which gives us up to 10 meters of maximum range; However, as we have already mentioned before, we can also use the mouse with the included USB cable so that we can charge the battery and play at the same time.
Price and availability
In this case, Trust has not yet announced the availability of the GXT 980 REDEX in Europe (or rather its press agency has not yet sent a press release about it), although it is true that it is already listed on its website and in fact we can already buy it in stores like Amazon, where there are currently no promotions and it is at its recommended retail price: $ 39.99.
As you can see, 40 dollars for a wireless mouse of very good quality and theoretical performance is to continue with the premise that we have always had from this manufacturer, where the quality/performance/price ratio takes precedence over everything just stay ; However, as we mentioned in the beginning, Trust tries to make their products known for their performance and quality, and as we saw in the specs of this mouse, there are two things that are sure to be missing from this product.
