Conclusion

AVF Gaming Freak II Gaming mouse round up review has come to an end. There is 3 type of common grip style when using a gaming mouse, Palm Grip, Finger Grip and Claw Grip. Each of the mouse models have different type of grips and design to help user find the right mouse to fit with their hands. The cord is braided with nylon. Braided cable is a must for gaming mouse but at the same time it must be very flexible and this mouse is built in with Ferrite bead to suppress high frequency noise in electronic circuits from the USB to the mouse. There are total of 6 buttons on each of the model that can be custom configure with 3rd party softwares, Eg X-Mouse Button Control as AVF does not provide the mouse with software as it just plug and play mouse. The DPI of the mouse can easily change with just a click on the middle top of the mouse which makes it easy for user, especially when playing 3rd shooting game from high DPI for swift move to low DPI for accuracy. As the price tag is ranged from RM39 to RM49, this would the best mouse for a user that seek budget gaming mouse which support up to 3000DPI Laser driver. Great work AVF!

I brought the AVF Gaming Freak II AGM-X6 gaming mouse on 20/04/14 for RM69 at my local computer shop. I've been using the mouse ever since to replace my Apple Green 3D Series mouse, which I forgot the model which I brought for RM25 at the end of 2010.

Around July 2014, I noticed that the AVF Gaming Freak II AGM-X6 gaming mouse would sometimes disconnects & connects back to the computer. At first I ignored the symptoms, as I thought that my USB port on my computer was problematic hmm.gif But around 08/09/14, the gaming mouse would frequently disconnects & connects back to the computer, worst than before cry.gif After troubleshooting the gaming mouse by plugging into different USB ports & computers, I found out that the gaming mouse cable was broken inside as when I try bending the cable coming from the outside of the gaming mouse, near the gaming mouse itself, the gaming mouse would disconnects & connects back to the computer shocking.gif cry.gif

Now I can't do my work productively & play my favorite games competitively on my computer, as I heavily rely on my mouse for such tasks. It's such a shame that such a well designed & cheap gaming mouse suffers from durability issues from my experience & others (Internally broken cable & right click button issue) sweat.gif doh.gif

My previous Apple Green 3D Series mouse, which costs less than my AVF Gaming Freak II AGM-X6 gaming mouse is cheaper & more durable even though it is not a gaming mouse & it was not advertised as a gaming mouse, although the Apple Green 3D Series mouse did suffer the durability of its mouse wheel after a few months, but not its cable which is a major durability issue sweat.gif doh.gif

Cons:
1. Not durable gaming mouse cable.

9. AVF provides its own software at its website to use/adjust/control with the gaming mouse.

shah93 I guess I can't get a return merchandise authorization (RMA) for my AVF Gaming Freak II AGM-X6 gaming mouse as I'm now over the 3 month warranty period? unsure.gif sad.gif

Now I can't do my work productively & play my favorite games competitively on my computer, as I heavily rely on my mouse for such tasks. It's such a shame that such a well designed & cheap gaming mouse suffers from durability issues from my experience & others (Internally broken cable & right click button issue) sweat.gif doh.gif

My previous Apple Green 3D Series mouse, which costs less than my AVF Gaming Freak II AGM-X6 gaming mouse is cheaper & more durable even though it is not a gaming mouse & it was not advertised as a gaming mouse, although the Apple Green 3D Series mouse did suffer the durability of its mouse wheel after a few months, but not its cable which is a major durability issue sweat.gif doh.gif

REVIEW

Here is my review based on my Apple Green 3D Series mouse as my base experience for a critical & fair review for my AVF Gaming Freak II AGM-X6 gaming mouse.

Cons:
1. Not durable gaming mouse cable.

shah93 I guess I can't get a return merchandise authorization (RMA)  for my AVF Gaming Freak II AGM-X6 gaming mouse as I'm now over the 3 month warranty period? unsure.gif sad.gif

Thank you to the AVF GamingFREAK fans
The mouse was overwhelming as it has been sold 26k in 3batches on particular AGM X6.
We pressured factory for each batch delivery on time due to overwhelmed demand since Jan 2014
Those affected batch user has unlimited warranty claim. Or may exchange to AGM X8 as it same price with X6

Pm us to arrange for RMA
