Endgame Gear XM1 RGB Dark Frost
Maximum PC|May 2021
Raw performance and only minor niggles? We're in!
DAVE ALCOCK

WE HAVEN’T HAD much experience with Endgame Gear or its mice, but a search reveals that it’s a German company with very strong links to Caseking and sister companies. Caseking is one of the largest European PC enthusiast suppliers and, as such, has the financial backing and knowledgeable staff to create some impressive products. The Endgame Gear XM1 RGB Dark Frost seems to be one of the products that’s been done right, and hopefully we’ll see more of them.

Visually, the XM1 RGB looks very simple, and similar to a whole host of mice. It has the standard five-button layout, and all the switches feel crisp and satisfying. Our particular model, the Dark Frost, is semi-transparent, and once the lighting shines through, it creates some great effects. This mouse isn’t built for showing off—it doesn’t have any small screens, crazy number of buttons, or any gimmicks—it’s simply built for performance. The materials are good quality, and if you value simplistic looks, you’ll enjoy it aesthetically. The XM1 is available in a few other colors, too, but we didn’t get hands-on with them.
