We will as usual expose the mouse to three different tests. How the mouse does in day-to-day use, gaming and picture editing. Different speeds will be tested to determine the strong and waek points of SMOG. We used Ozone's own Exposure mousepad as it might have been made for pairing with SMOG - One might think.

Day-to-day use: Starting out with SMOG's abilities in day-to-say use. This covers websurfing and other tasks you might normally work with on your computer. Commenting on the comfort of SMOG is quite difficult as this might be a very subjective matter. Personally I have rather large hands, which relegated my little- and third finger to the mousepad. This problem remained with both of the handgrips. Regarding the general performance of SMOG in day-to-day use it did quite well and is very easy to navigate with. The sounds when clicking buttons also kept a reasonable noise level, though it isn't the most quiet of its kind. As mentioned earlier, the surface of SMOG is glossy, which gives SMOG to become slippery when having sweaty palms. All in all SMOG did quite well in day-to-day use.


Gaming: The gaming part ought to be where SMOG holds its own, as it is designed with gaming in mind. We plaayed Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, which is a FPS game (First Person Shooter) where it is important to have a great mouse while running around killing your enemies. SMOG was very nice and accurate while being extremely fast. Due to the ceramic footpads it almost rushed across the mousepad. It was easy to aim and take down enemies even when operating with high sensitivity settings. A lower or higher sensitivity could easily be configured thanks to the built-in slide button on the left-lower side. As mentioned before, we were concerned about the glossy surface and the risk of it becoming slippery when operated with sweaty palms. This was exactly what happened and quite a shame as SMOG handled itself very well. Sweaty palms and glossy designed mice have no good relations, and in a way it makes it unpleasant to hold on to. Good performance in games, but the glossy (slippery) surface penalizes the verdict.

Picture editing: The last of our tests is picture editing. We choose a couple of pictures, that are in need of a "haircut". This kind of work thrives from using an accurate mouse, as the opposite might end up with a bad result such as crooked cut pictures. We decided to use SMOG with low sensitivity, as this eases the process of editing pictures. SMOG did a pretty good job here as well and remained accurate. Actually we were a bit surprised by the accuracy as SMOG's ceramic footpads were built for high sensitivity. However SMOG was capable of convincing us that you can be accurate though built for speed. Thumbs up. 


As usual it is a pleasure to have a mouse through our testbench here at Tweak.dk. When we received SMOG it was with mixed expectations as both the product and brand were new to us. We were quickly surprised when starting to use SMOG.  

Firstly, the design of SMOG is rather unusual. Either you like it or you don't. The black and red color scheme makes the product look really cool. As is ever more frequent with gaming mice, SMOG is equiped with lights, that almost speak for itself - it looks terrific. A DPI monitor is somthing that also appears on more and more gaming mice today, and it is not a bad thing at all

Continuing with the ceramic footpads. This was the first time I experienced a mouse with ceramic footpads, and I have to say that I had my doubts about whether or not it was a good idea. After using SMOG for a couple of weeks I must say: Wow! It's the first time we see a mouse glide over a mousepad after nothing more than a blowing at it. This is nothing short of magnificent if you cannot get your mouse fast enough. Remember to use SMOG with a mousepad, as a raw table quickly demolish the ceramic footpads.   

Now to the negative aspects of the SMOG gaming mouse. Regarding the size, it is rather important to mention, that it does not appeal to people with large hands. We tried to use the different handgrips in different situations, but to no avail. This is due to the very slim design of SMOG, which simply does not fit to larger hands. Another aspect that we do not particularly like, is the glossy design. I looks terrific, no doubt about that, but it is not an ideal surface for a mouse. SMOG turns into a slippery nightmare followed by inaccuracy and some discomfort after just 30 minutes of use.  

Price vs. Performance is one of SMOG's strong points. With a price of 429.00DKK SMOG represents the lower end of the scale, even when having many goods to offer. The price of 429 DKK was found at www.customdata.dk.

Ny bedømmelse per 5. september 2013.



1-3: Det er noget skidt
Her er der tale om produkter der ikke rigtigt lever op til hvad de lover. Dvs. produkter der ikke fungerer helt efter hensigten, eller produkter med graverende fejl der vil gøre at disse ikke kan anbefales.


4-6: Det fungerer egentligt helt godt, men der er nogle mangler
Disse karakterer gives til produkter der virker som de skal uden på nogen måde at imponere synderligt. Her er der plads til lidt fejl og mangler. Mængden af disse er bestemmende for placeringen i denne kategori.


7-9: Et godt gennemtænkt produkt med få "udfald"
Karaktererne fra 7-9 gives for et produkt der er rigtigt godt gennemtænkt og performer godt sammenlignet med lignende produkter. Det er i denne karaktergruppe tilladt af have enkelte udfald – dvs. enkelte småfejl som det er til at leve med. Antallet og tyngden af disse vil være medbestemmende for placeringen i denne kategori.


10: Et perfekt produkt
Denne karakter gives til et produkt der leverer ud over hvad der kan forventes i dens klasse. Det være sig i form af mange ekstra funktioner, exceptionel performance og lignende. Ved denne karakter må der ikke være nogen ”huller” – dvs. der må ikke være nogen mangler.
