Just like other ASUS gaming mouse, the STRIX EVOLVE also allows you some customization make it more suitable for your hand. But this time it’s not swappable switches, its whole top body panel of the mouse. The STRIX EVOLVE features an ambidextrous symmetrical design with changeable body penal for different shape based on left or right-hand use. Allowing the user to raise the profile of the left, right, or both sides of the mouse.
The top cover panels are held by magnets and can be easily popped open from the bottom side. One’s panels are placed currently, they are very sturdy and didn’t wobble at all.
Size cooperation with ASUS Gladius II, Mionix Castor, and CM Storm Sentinel Advance II.
Overall the mouse feels and looks great but the mouse is a personal preference, so it is better if you can try peripheral yourself in any store before buying it.
The ROG Armoury Software is available for download from the ASUS support website; the software allows you to customize your ROG PUGIO mouse settings including macros and sensitivity and Aura RGB lighting.
The ROG Armoury interface is organized into tabs and list of profiles to the left side. The Button Assignment menu features a small popup window with options, and you can set Mouse Function, Windows Shortcut, Multimedia, MACRO and Keyboard Function.
The macro manager has a list of saved macros on the left side, and the right side has a macro sheet that shows recorded macro command or keys. But I disappointed to see no repeat command option when pressed.
The Performance tab has all the configurations for Sensitivity, Accelerations, Angele Snapping and Polling rate. You can set up to two DPI range for per profile.
The Lighting tab lets you customize the lighting options. You can change the color of three individual zones, the logo, scroll wheel and the back under glow strip. All lighting effects can sync between all areas or set individually. The lighting effects include Static, Breathing, Color Cycle, Reactive, Wave, and Comet. You can enable or disable lights as your preference.
In the Calibration tab, lets the user enable surface calibration also allows changes to lift off distance, or you can select from preset surfaces including ASUS’s own ROG pads and four generic preset surfaces to choose from.
The Stats tab allows you keep track you click, action per minute and distance (cm). Which not much of useful but fun to see how you used your mouse during gaming.
