EVGA X15 MMO and EVGA X20 Wireless Mouse Two-in-One Review – EVGA’s Strong Case for the PC Gamer

We received an EVGA X20 MMO Mouse from EVGA a week ago together with the previously announced EVGA X20 Wireless mouse. We have been using the wireless X20 for more than a week alongside the EVGA X15 MMO mouse. Normally, many gamers use a typical Logitech mouse or not care about the name brand at all. Personally, I cannot be without a decent mouse that’s responsive, light, and has enough buttons that instantly lets me control my character in a game.

We present this review to give our impressions of these two premium customizable RGB mice.  The just released today, EVGA X15 MMO mouse is launching at the incredible price of $39.99 for the launch window (normally $79.99) and the X20 Wireless mouse is $59.99 (normally $119.99). The EVGA X15 MMO mouse features 12 physical buttons, Light Strike LK Optical switches for fast response times, and fully customizable RGB. The X20 is very similar and features a premium wireless design that is light and responsive with fully customizable RGB.

Let’s take a deeper look at the two newest mice from EVGA.

Mouse latency is one of the most important factors for gaming. Both mice feature some incredible tech and in our testing have been superb. I have used both for Destiny 2, Apex Legends, and Warzone and they both have been amazing weapons to use.

The features and specifications look great, but how do they handle while playing games? Besides playing fast-paced first-person shooters (FPS), we were particularly interested in the X20’s three modes of connecting via Bluetooth, USB, or wireless with a USB dongle. All were incredibly responsive and the wireless offering has a 1MS response time. The X15 impressed us most with its plethora of buttons to customize.

I have a significant amount of time in Destiny 2 using custom keybinds that have become second nature, but I did try to implement a ton of my various characters’ abilities and mappings to these buttons. I still prefer them on the KB but this was a very nice feature to have in the heat of the moment, and at times I can see the appeal.

Of course, mouse reviews are highly subjective and your own experience may vary.  Please read on for our experiences with these two mice over the past week.

First, the unboxing.
