MSI is trying to assert itself in the gaming peripherals market, and the competition is fierce. The dragon brand has just unveiled a new model that intends to compete with Razer’s Deathadder v3 Pro, at least in terms of design, and displays a more aggressive price.
Much heavier than its rival, with its 85 g (75 g in the wired version), the Clutch GM51 is ultimately closer to general-purpose mice such as the Basilisk V3 from Razer or the G502 X from Logitech. The Deathadder V3 Pro is displayed at 64 g, so the battle for lightness is lost for the GM51 Lightweight (a shame with such a name), but the price displayed is much more attractive. If weight is only a secondary factor for you, the GM51 might prove attractive due to its price/performance ratio. Count 99 € for the wireless model and 69 € for the wired version.
Despite its lack of lightness, an interesting technical sheet
In terms of features, the two mice are almost identical. There are a total of six buttons, a notched wheel, an excellent quality PixArt 3395 sensor and even three RGB lighting zones. The grip should also be good with a curved format at an angle, to perfectly fit the palm of the hand.
Autonomy is announced at 150 hours (for the wireless model of course), backlight off, it will therefore be necessary to count much less with the RGB activated. Note however that this version is accompanied by a charging station, practical for not having to plug in your mouse regularly.
The GM51 Lightweight are already available from retailers.
