First Impression

   Today I’m excited to review NZXT’s Avatar Gaming Mouse.  For those of you who don’t know NZXT is a mostly a enthusiast  case company started in 2004 in Los Angeles, CA.   They are starting to branch out into other areas and the  NZXT Avatar is their first foray into the world of gaming mice.  So let’s take a look shall we and see how they did.

  First off the NZXT Avatar Gaming mouse comes packaged in a neat little compact casing.  The overall dimensions are 2.25 x 4 x 7.75, or just about the size of a small paper back novel or DVD pack.  The artwork is very toned down and looks very professional.   A pic of the mouse itself adorns the front of the packaging while all the specs are listed neatly on the back of the packaging (in four languages) as well as some detail shots of some of the features with detailed specifications.

   Opening up the packaging you get to see the actual mouse itself nestled inside a clear blister pack.   On the underside of the lid you see a layout of the buttons and functions of the mouse.   The cool thing about this is that it give you a chance to really see the mouse and get an idea of the size, shape and possible feel of the mouse.    Some might see right off things they like or don’t like about it this way.  It’s always good to be able to see what it is your are purchasing and this small casing does a good job of showcasing the mouse.

   Below we have a list of specifications that are listed partially on the back of the packaging.  For a complete set of features I copied these from the NZXT website and put them here for your convenience.
