With its new LM50, the Berlin-based company Lioncast wants to appeal to demanding gamers and competitive eSports players. According to Lioncast, the eSports mouse was developed in collaboration with Berlin International Gaming, one of the best Counter-Strike teams in the world. Our test shows whether the gaming mouse, which costs just under 60 euros, meets the high demands of this target group.
Material and Workmanship
The plastic used in the Lioncast LM50 leaves a very high-quality impression overall. The built-in keys and the gap dimensions are also of very good quality. You won’t find annoying clacking or inferior quality on the Lioncast LM50.
Thanks to the high-quality sheathed cable and the additionally reinforced connection point between mouse and cable, it is to be expected that the LM50 can be used for a long time without cable breaks. The USB connector is also gold-plated as usual to prevent corrosion.
The cable appears very stiff when first used due to the thick sheathing. After a few days of use, however, there was nothing left to notice.
The excellent Pixart PWM3360 sensor offers a maximum of 12,000 dpi. The resolution can be set in 100 dpi steps. Omron switches also have a high-quality effect. According to their manufacturer, they should withstand up to 10 million clicks.
There are no further accessories like changeable weights or possibilities to adjust the case for this excellent eSports mouse.
