The GXT 980 REDEX it’s a plastic mouse, with just a bit of RGB lighting. Its measurements are 112 mm high, 54 mm wide and 39 mm thick. It has a weight of 86 grams and its casing can be opened to reveal a compartment in which we will store the wireless USB 2.0 sensor when we are not using it.

The battery of this mouse promises up to 50 hours of charge -without the LED on- and also the USB-C cable is included in the box with which you can plug in and charge the battery when you run out. The battery takes a considerably long time to charge -a full afternoon- and will last us -depending on the intensity of our gaming sessions- about 4 days of autonomy. Once plugged in, you will be able to continue using the mouse. The battery level is measured through an LED indicator on the body of the mouse.

It has six buttons: right, left, middle, off, on, DPI controller and two side buttons for navigation. These buttons are programmable and compatible with the use of Macros. Its body is black, smooth, with a slight curve where the palm of the hand goes. Also comfortable for the “claw” and “fingertip” position when grasping it.

The optical sensor model is a PMW3325, usual in trust models. It has a range of DPI from 200 to 10,000. With this mouse you will have 10 meters of range of action.

Use and sensations

If you are one of those people who grabs the mouse with the entire palm, it will be quite comfortable for you. While it accommodates other ways of holding, it may take some getting used to. On the other hand, one of the disadvantages that we find in this model is that, by having the side buttons on the left side, it means that a left-handed person cannot use it in its entirety. You will not find major problems in using the main buttons, but these “extra” that we can configure with Macros will not be easy to access.

The battery takes a long time to charge, but in contrast, it gives a great autonomy. The fact that it is rechargeable is good news for those who suffer from the anxiety of running out of battery at any time.

The LED light of this mouse is quite sober. It is a preference of each player if this is something positive or negative within the mouse. If you are one of those who go full RGB, you may feel a little withdrawn. If, on the other hand, you prefer discreet peripherals, you may like this design a lot.

A very redeeming feature of this mouse is that it can be programmed – lighting, macros and keys – through software that can be downloaded from the Trust Gaming support page. The software is quite intuitive, so you won’t have any problems if it’s your first time. If you prefer not to use any extra…the GXT 980 REDEX it is “plug and play”.

Regarding latency and sensitivity, this mouse has a maximum polling rate of 2.4 GHz. We can say that at an intermediate, semi-professional level, the mouse responds more than correctly. The delays in response are mostly noticeable if you run some software that evaluates performance. If you’re more casual, you won’t notice any difference in response time or it won’t affect your gameplay. Wireless technology has advanced to the point of being very close to cable. And, if you need a little more precision… you can always put the mouse to load while you enter the game.
