I previously reviewed the SROCKER C10S (<$16) and V2C (<$10), each of which I found offered nice features and good performance for a very low price. Now, I’m reviewing the V5C, which slots between the gaming-centric C10S and the more casual V2C.
The V5C (<$14) has a similar basic shape to the V2C, but is a bit more ergonomic and features two additional side buttons and a DPI button, which switches between four resolutions/cursor speeds: 1000, 1500, 2000, and 2400. The nice thing about that feature is that there’s no extra software to install, so changes happen internally within the mouse at the literal press of that button.
Mouse movement is quick and silky smooth, as are the two main buttons, which have a short throw, or distance between registering a press. This mouse is indeed fairly silent, although there is a more audible click with the two side buttons and scroll wheel. While I’m reviewing the white model, the V5C is also available in black.
In the box you get the mouse itself and a short quick start sheet. Behind the rear battery cover is the required USB nano dongle and AA battery. With the typical SROCKER power saving technology, you can expect months of use between battery changes. While testing took place on two different Windows 10 systems, since no special software is required, the USB dongle and mouse should also work on almost any other mouse-compatible platforms. The V5C is a good performer at a great price.
- Low price
- Smooth motion
- Silent operation
- In-mouse USB nano dongle storage
- Comes with a battery
- Left and right mouse buttons have subtle action, which may not be to everyone’s liking
- Mouse is very light even with the battery, which may also not be to everyone’s liking
Thanks to SROCKER for the review unit.
