MSI Clutch GM31 review 1 1

MSI’s Clutch GM31 has proven to be a great gaming mouse that can deliver a smooth and comfortable gaming experience. A mix of elegant and modern design (without overdoing it), excellent performance and an aerodynamic shape make it the gaming mouse you’ve been looking for. In this wired version we shouldn’t even worry about the limits of the battery or the interference given by the wireless at the expense of a slight impediment of the cable which, all in all, did not undermine our experience at all.

To all this is added a really competitive price, around €50, exceptional for a gaming mouse of the quality and performance that MSI can offer.
