With the Clutch GM30, MSI offers a mouse that has to compete for a price of € 37.90 Euro in a highly competitive market. The mouse prefers lighting in particular, but the device can also surprise in other areas: The ergonomics in the claw and palm grip have been successful, and the buttons are consistently easy to reach and offer a very pleasant and defined click feeling.
The mouse doesn’t set new standards for the sensor: The built-in PAW-3327 does a solid job, but of course it can’t keep up with the higher quality models from Pixart. Mice that offer such sensors in the same price segment, however, cut back other functions. A more expensive sensor is therefore not really to be expected with the Clutch GM30.
The bottom line is that the Clutch GM30 can be recommended for exactly the target group that MSI wants to appeal to: If you like the prominent RGB lighting, you will get a solid mouse that scores especially with the implementation of the keys. Only the software offers real potential for improvement: A somewhat faster installation and a less prominent registration request would have been nice.
