HP Omen Photon Wireless Mouse Review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: The HP Omen Photon is a good wireless mouse. For the money, you're getting something that's fully customisable with a great sensor and DPI range. That said, some of the competition is cheaper and more proven, so while the Photon does look a great option it only really stands out for its ambidextrous design
Pros: 
  • PixArt's PAW3335 works an absolute dream
  • Additional side pods and an ambidextrous design great for left handers
  • 50 hour battery life is plentiful and Qi wireless charging only helps its cause
Cons: 
  • Software is too simplistic and lacking in functionality
  • No additional weights in the box

HP Omen Photon Review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: The HP Omen Photon is a wireless gaming mouse that draws you in with high-end features and a magnetic modular design.
Most ambidextrous gaming mice tend to be pretty plain. It's as if most companies think the very act of making a mouse that left-handed people can use is a novelty unto itself. HP, under its Omen gaming brand, has finally made a sufficiently feature-rich mouse for all users, not just righties. Its wireless flagship, the $129.99 Omen Photon, employs a modular design that allows players to easily swap out magnetic fixtures that create a right- or left-handed grip, including side buttons and a thumb wing. Though this still isn't quite the same as making a high-end left-handed mouse, it's a huge win for left-handed players looking for a high-quality mouse with the bells and whistles normally reserved for right-handers. One Wing or Two? The Omen Photon looks a little odd. Measuring 1.75 by 2.3 by 5.1 inches, its base is tall and thin. When you add a thumb wing, the mouse gets a little wider (2.8 inches across), but the portion that you grip remains unchanged, and that's what's most imp...
Pros: 
  • Modular buttons allow for right- or left-hand grip
  • Opto-mechanical mouse switches
  • Lots of DPI presets
  • Qi wireless charging
Cons: 
  • Omen Command Center software demands a lot of personal info
  • Shell doesn't add hand support
  • No storage for onboard profiles or extra parts
