Sharkoon is known for its affordable peripherals and PC cases. Now the hardware expert from Germany is venturing into the area of professional gaming mice. I have tested whether the German manufacturer can also convince in the area of ultra-light mice. Can Sharkoon also do e-sports?
The importance of the right gaming mouse
Especially as a passionate first-person shooter player, I know the importance of the right gaming mouse. However, as the market is increasingly flooded with new products, it is difficult to keep an overview. While until a few years ago it was the number of buttons on a mouse that was decisive, nowadays the weight plays an increasingly important role. Many buttons are certainly of great importance in the field of strategy games. First-person shooters, however, demand rather fast gliding movements, good mouse buttons and above all a low total weight. Sharkoon promises all of this with the Light² 200.

The scope of delivery
In addition to the Light² 200, Sharkoon has included a number of accessories. Thus, three alternative DPI buttons as well as replacement feet for the bottom of the mouse can be found in the packaging. In addition, Sharkoon has given its ultra-light gaming mouse an exchangeable top side. The USB cable is already firmly attached to the mouse. You wouldn’t expect to find so many accessories in this lightweight packaging.
No average mouse
With the Light² 200, Sharkoon has not brought its first gaming mouse to market. The manufacturer has already been able to convince in the past with mice that have enjoyed great popularity primarily due to their good price-performance ratio. In contrast to the other mice, Sharkoon is by no means relying on a mouse for beginners with the Light² 200. Here, genuine e-sports enthusiasts should be able to celebrate success. You notice that immediately. Persons who rely on competitive gaming should receive a high-end mouse here, which should lead to success due to its light weight.
