JSCO JNL-101K Noiseless Gaming Mouse review

Article comments

Aimed at relatively cash-strapped gaming fans who simply can't bear the deafening din of mouse clicks any longer, the JSCO JNL-101K Noiseless Gaming Mouse appears almost like a spoof product. Like toothbrushes with ‘tongue scrapers', it feels like a satirical swipe at the tech industry's increasingly desperate search for the next problem to solve. But look beyond the quixotic headline features and you'll find this is a solid mouse for the money.

First things first: the JSCO JNL-101K Noiseless Gaming Mouse is, yes, pretty much noiseless. The left- and right-click buttons have a luxuriously gentle, near-silent action. The mouse also has a smooth bottom surface that glides quietly across a desk.

But the JSCO JNL-101K Noiseless Gaming Mouse's most advanced feature is probably its one-click tracking speed adjustment: press the illuminated button behind the scrollwheel to cycle through the four settings (750/1,000/1,250/1,600dpi). This is potentially handy for gamers who wish to switch between quick-response machine gun and slow-aiming sniper rifle, say, but the laborious control method can be limiting. Offering + and – buttons would be more convenient.

Get back to fundamentals, however, and the JSCO JNL-101K Noiseless Gaming Mouse is on firmer ground. It feels great in the hand, we enjoyed the contrast between the matt texture around the sides and the shinier left- and right-click buttons, and has the looks of a more expensive product.

One complaint is that the JSCO JNL-101K Noiseless Gaming Mouse is disconcertingly light at just 98g. That's handy for portability, and some will like the way it feels. But we reckon it could do with the option to bulk up – both the upmarket Cyber Snipa Silencer and the budget Genius NetScroll G500 Laser allow you to slot metal weights or coins into the chassis.

Vic513 said: I had purchased the silent mouse from Nexus but was dismayed to realize that that there is no way to bind the thumb keys to anything other than their preset functions Does this mouse come with drivers that let you bind the keys to anything you want I have a video game that I want to bind one of the buttons 0 and the other one T because the game itself does not let you bind within the game

E_vine said: Had this mouse for a week - very quiet tiny noises of compression but basically nothing as advertised mouse wheel makes a bit of noise but not alot Good performance for gaming feels nice maybe a tiny bit small but I have big hands and I dont mind it If you prefer a big mouse you might want something else
