Review: The Feenix Nascita gaming mouse and Dimora gaming surface

“If I had known the Dimora existed earlier, I would have purchased it ages ago.”

Feenix is a relative newcomer to the PC peripherals scene, focusing on quality, aesthetics and absolute perfection in every possible aspect. This brand has also been known as “designer” or “luxury” in the PC gaming scene. As the new kid on the block, they’ve come out swinging pretty damn hard. We had the pleasure of testing out two great products, the Nascita gaming mouse and Dimora mouse surface.

The Nascita

Design and Aesthetics

While this is one of the Nascita’s most emphasized aspects, it’s also the reason we didn’t give it a solid A. Don’t get me wrong, the mouse is gorgeous. It’s one of the most presentable, professional looking gaming mice on the market. The Nascita has 4 LED zones; a beautifully designed logo, two on the front, a back-lit DPI meter, and the mouse’s name adjacent to it.

The top of the mouse is covered with two different finishes. Matte black covers most of the mouse, while a darker grey covers the sides. The scroll wheel has a rubberized center, accented with silver rims. The DPI switch buttons are also silver and somewhat oddly shaped. Two side thumb buttons lie comfortable on the left side and are well rubberized and do not feel flimsy whatsoever.

The Nascita’s only downfall is its right side. I’m not entirely sure that people with large hands will have a similar issue, but it’s been reported that the mouse will fall out of your hand when lifted. What I wish the Nascita had is some sort of grip support for your pinky and ring fingers. If you’re a gamer who tends to lift their mouse often, or has small/medium hands, I would not say this is the idea product for you.

Coming equipped with a braided cord and gold-plated USB, as well as additional Teflon replacement feet, the Nascita’s design rounds off  quite impressive, if not for its lack of grip.

Functionality

The Nascita has some seriously impressive specs, reaching up to 8200 DPI, with the lowest setting being 800. I’ve kept mine at a steady 1600 and love every second of it. Smooth, seamless and accurate to the T.

One interesting feature is that the mouse is fully plug-and-play. There is no additional software required for any aspect of the Nascita. While this is an advantage to users looking for something easy to setup, it’s another bump for gamers. We love our macro software. Macros make gaming much simpler, and a mouse with only two additional buttons could have really benefited with some software customization.

The weight of the mouse is slightly off-putting due to its size. If you’re looking for a heavier product, this isn’t it.

The switches used for the two main buttons will last an eternity, so no worrying about that.

The Dimora

Dimora 1Design and Functionality

Okay, to make this as simple as possible, if I had known the Dimora existed earlier, I would have purchased it ages ago. I’ve never been so impressed by a mousepad. It may sound somewhat insane, but I believe this is Feenix’s best product.

The pad itself has a beautiful matte black finish accented by a glossy black bezel. Feenix’s logo adorns the top right of the pad, in all its glory. The underside has a strange rigid pattern with high quality rubber feet to hold the thing in place.

It’s difficult to describe the difference this mousepad has in comparison to the soft-surface we’ve all gotten so used to, but it’s stain resistant, ash resistant (for the smokers), smooth and pretty. The Dimora has my complete seal of approval as the best mouse-pad I’ve had the pleasure of using, hats off.

The Feenix collection is targeted at gamers who are absolutely adamant about their peripherals having top-of-the-line aesthetics and basic functions. The Nascita is a great mouse if not for its lack of grip (for those with medium/small hands) and negligence of software. The Dimora is just a solid buy. There isn’t much else to say about it, but once you try it out, you’ll never switch back to soft surface again.
