Redragon m650 Review, Wireless Gaming Mouse
Alright I am stoked to be checking out a cheap wireless gaming mouse finally in my Redragon m650 Review. Normally I recommend wired gear for everything PC gaming related but this is just because I am a hippy dippy.
The thing is wireless can be just as good as wired these days if you give it a chance. But should you? Let us take a look at the reasons why you would want a wireless gaming mouse and if there are any issues that would steer you away.

Redragon m650 Video Review
Redragon m650 Button Setup
Much like its wired cousin the m601 this mouse has a 6-button layout. This consists of left and right, scroll, two side buttons and the top DPI button. For non MMO gaming (you may want even more buttons for mmo gaming) and general use this layout is my favorite.
If you use it for browsing the internet I especially like side buttons for the “back” and “forward” functions in a web browser.
Now days you can get USB wireless mice like the m650 but there are also Bluetooth versions as well. To get a Bluetooth mouse you will be looking at a little bit more money.
While I assume you will be mainly using your mouse for PC gaming and not in conjunction with other devices then I’d say USB is perfectly adequate and you shouldn’t feel the need for anything else.
Is 2000 DPI enough?
This is a question I can give you advice on but ultimately comes down to feel and personal preference. If you are unfamiliar with DPI it basically refers to cursor speed to simplify things.
Honestly on 1080p you should run at max and be just fine. I would recommend a higher DPI mouse if you are playing competitive first person shooters.
Wired vs. Wireless
With a wired mouse, such as the Redragon m601, you get unarguable consistency and reliability. There is no lag, no batteries to die on you… it is classic.
Wireless 2.4GHz offers convenience, portability, and NO ugly/messy cord.
Now days you don’t have to worry as much about a wireless mouse causing cursor lag. I have used one quite a bit and haven’t noticed it at all.
The other thing you may worry about is being in the middle of a game and your batteries dying. While that is a possibility, from my experience batteries last a pretty long time in a mouse like this.
It is really up to your preference of reliability vs convenience and style…
I am going to shoot ya strait here… this ain’t no high performance mouse. It will do what you want it to do and would be perfect for less competitive gaming such as Albion Online, Star Wars Battlefront or even Dota 2.
The price is super affordable so you can’t complain there.
Another cool function of a wireless mouse would be using it with a home theater PC so you can access the machine from sitting on your couch.
In short, barring a competitive FPS gamer, I think this mouse would suit your fancy.
Thank you so much for checking out this Redragon m650 Review!
