ASUS ROG Keris Wireless AimPoint Gaming Mouse Review: Lighter & Better

ROG Keris Wireless AimPoint

ASUS ROG has updated the popular Keris Gaming Mouse with the Keris Wireless Aimpoint. Touting better accuracy with a brand new AimPoint optical sensor and improved battery life, it aims (get it?) to deliver great performance for hardcore FPS gamers.

Personally, I own the original Keris Wireless as my daily driver. I loved the solid build and top tier sensor, so I had to jump on the opportunity to review the upgraded Keris AimPoint when ASUS offered us a sample.

ROG Keris Wireless AimPoint side buttons

The ROG Keris Wireless AimPoint is a right-handed mouse with two side buttons. The moonlight white version sports a two-tone design reminiscent of game consoles in the early 90s. An RGB logo is located at the palm rest to complete the look.

ROG Keris Wireless AimPoint dongle slot

At the bottom, you will find the DPI switch, Bluetooth pairing button, and the tri-mode switch. It features Teflon feet for a smooth glide too. There is a slot for the 2.4G wireless receiver for storage.

ROG Keris Wireless AimPoint delidded

Eagle eyed readers will notice two rubber seals at the bottom. These hide a pair of screws that allow you to “de-lid” the mouse and access the internals. One notable feature of the Keris Wireless AimPoint is that you can swap out the mouse switches with soldering and it supports both 3-pin and 5-pin switches. A pair of spare switches are also included just in case any of them fails. However that will take a while since the ROG Micro Switches are rated for 70 million clicks.

The side buttons are also detachable but unlike the original Keris Wireless which allowed users to swap side buttons to different colours, the AimPoint has omitted spare buttons.

Lastly, there is the brand new ROG AimPoint sensor capable of reaching 36,000 DPI, more than double of the original Keris Wireless. Battery life has improved substantially too, despite a smaller battery onboard, which I presume was meant to reduce the weight further to 75g (down from 79g).

Using The Mouse

ROG Keris Wireless AimPoint

Right off the bat, the Keris Wireless AimPoint feels exactly the same as the original, with the same sculpting and materials. The sides and buttons are textured to provide additional grip, however my pinky often had trouble gripping the right side due to the sculpting angle. The included mouse grips helped mitigatethis issue and I would recommend sticking them on especially if you sweat a lot.

The sensor from the original Keris did an amazing job, and the AimPoint did not disappoint either. For me personally, I rarely require anything above 8,000 DPI, and even then the sensor is accurate and precise, with no discernable mouse acceleration. Latency was unnoticeable either thanks to the ROG SpeedNova wireless technology.

ROG Keris Wireless AimPoint dongle extension

This is the first time I have seen a USB extension cable with clip for the dongle, and I wish other brands could implement this. It works wonders like any other USB cable, only that the clip helps secure the dongle in place, such as desk mats. I do not need to crawl to my CPU under the desk just to pull the dongle out.

My only gripe with the Keris in general is the placement of the DPI switch at the bottom. That makes switching DPI settings on the fly almost impossible while gaming as I have the habit of switching DPI settings between running and aiming. I was expecting the switch will be relocated to somewhere more accessible but the Keris Wireless Aimpoint carried over this flaw as well.

Battery Life

I’ve been using the Keris Wireless AimPoint for 2 weeks now, and I only needed to charge it once. Battery life is excellent as I was able to get what ROG promised: about 119 hours with the RGB lighting turned off via the Armoury Crate software.

ROG Keris Wireless AimPoint with grip tape

The ROG Keris Wireless AimPoint is an excellent wireless gaming mouse for serious gamers who want great performance with a minimalist aesthetic. It is light, ergonomic, and offers some degree of modularity with swappable micro switches, a feature rarely seen in other brands.

At RM390, it is slightly more expensive than the original Keris Wireless, but I think it is a good enough upgrade to justify the premium. If you plan to invest in a gaming mice that performs great with a few extra features, the ROG Keris Wireless AimPoint is hard to beat.
