Introducing Gigabyte's Aivia Uranium
A Mouse With A Friend
The Aivia Uranium is one of Gigabyte’s latest entries into the strongly-contested gaming mouse market. It has enough unique features to set it apart from the many similar gaming mice already vying for attention.
Some might love and some might hate Gigabyte’s concept, but it'll at least evoke a strong reaction one way or the other. That's definitely preferable to the average response that most lookalike peripherals elicit when they're first introduced.
Gigabyte’s package consists of a wireless mouse that employs replaceable, rechargeable batteries. In a pinch, normal alkaline batteries can be used as well. The charging station features a display that conveys important information, while bundled Ghost software enables a solution akin to Roccat's Grid to make the Aivia Uranium more flexible through profiles.
So, there's the mouse, the charging station, rechargeable batteries, and replacement feet found in the box. That's a fairly standard package accompanying a gaming mouse.

120 for a mouse? No thanksReply
this just does not seem worth the high price. it just seems like too much of an office mouse than a gaming mouse honestly thats marketed for gamers.Reply
Using Microsoft Mouse wireless 4000 and still owning Dota 2 nicely. CheersReply
I don't understand why you think heavy is ok for low sensitivity and bad for high sensitivity. It is quite the opposite. Low sensitivity means you are moving your mouse way more and lifting your mouse way more, which means heft is a big problem. While many high sensitivity players move their mouse very little and many actually prefer heavy mice.Reply
Also many low sensitivity players use 400 or 450 dpi. the lowest native step being 800 is not good for low sensitivity players.5600 DPI is ridiculously high. Almost all professional shooter players use below 1000 dpi. The higher the max dpi, the more smoothing is needed to be built into the mouse to counter jitter, the laggier the mouse is. Any mouse above 3,000 dpi is not taking high level mouse performance seriously.Reply
