Today we will start our adventure with some Sharkoon products. We will begin the review with their latest products, and show you what this brand has to offer. Sharkoon specializes in gaming accessories, mice, keyboards, headsets, and many other products designed for this specific and demanding group of users.

This review will focus on the Sharkoon Light² 180 mouse, tested with the SKILLER SGP30 Big Hex mousepad.

Let’s begin with a long list of features and specifications.

The Light² 180 counts as one of the lightest mice in the world, having a weight of only 63 grams and thus being especially easy to use. With three mouse feet made of 100 % PTFE as well as the ultraflexible cable, it will glide unhindered with a special smoothness over surfaces. The powerful PixArt PMW3360 sensor with up to 12,000 DPI enables particularly precise maneuvers. Also, thanks to its symmetrical design combined with the honeycomb-structured top cover, the mouse offers a good grip and effortless handling at all times.


Practical and Comfortable Design. With its low weight of only 63 grams, the Light² 180 offers a feather-light experience for the user. The symmetrical shape lies particularly comfortably in the hand, and the honeycomb structure provides a good sensation of grip over many hours of gaming. Depending on preference, the top cover of the shell can be replaced with a closed cover in just a few simple steps. This ensures that the inside of the mouse is better protected from external influences such as dust. With its size of 120 x 63.5 x 39 millimeters, the Light² 180 is also the most compact member of the Light² series and is therefore particularly handy and space-saving.

Unrestricted Handling. The low weight of the Light² 180 makes itself clearly noticeable in the form of fast and responsive handling. And with its three mouse feet made of 100 % PTFE, the mouse slides smoothly over surfaces. Fast and fluid movements can be thus carried out with precision. The textile braided cable supports the Light² 180’s freedom of movement with more flexibility and, thanks to its textile sheathing, is also particularly resilient. All in all, the Light² 180 provides the right technology for skillful and precise maneuvers.

Aimed for Precision. However, apart from extensive freedom of movement, the ability to work with precision is another top requirement. This is why a PixArt PMW3360 optical sensor has been deployed in the Light² 180. With its maximum resolution of 12,000 DPI, it provides high precision for exact maneuvers. With the downloadable gaming software, the DPI settings can be adjusted and set in seven different levels. Using the DPI switch of the Light² 180, these can be selected as desired at any time.

Stylish Illumination. The symmetrical shape of the Light² 180 is complemented by a subtle RGB illumination. A bright strip of light at the end of the mouse sets color accents, and the illuminated Sharkoon logo is visible through the honeycomb structure of the mouse’s upper shell. The scroll wheel is also illuminated in RGB colors, rounding off the overall impression. Numerous illumination settings can be made via software, enabling the look to be modified according to personal taste.

Equipped to be Clicked. The six programmable buttons on the Light² 180 can be reassigned as required using the software. The durable Omron switches in the left and right mouse button contribute to the robustness of the Light² 180. With a lifespan of at least 20 million clicks, these are ideally equipped for countless matches and ensure that you can enjoy the Light² 180 for a long time to come.
