Review of MSI Clutch GM51 lightweight wireless mouse and Agility GD72 Gleam Edition mouse pad. Stylish and efficient

We haven’t seen gaming peripherals in our reviews for quite some time – last time we looked at the MSI Clutch GM31 mice. This time we look at the top model from the line, the MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight Wireless, which we walk around on the beautiful MSI Agility GD72 Gleam Edition rug. Let’s take a closer look at them!

Appearance and functionality

The MSI Clutch GM51 lightweight wireless mouse follows the design style of the series: the housing is made of non-marking matte black plastic. The upper part is smooth and the color has a slightly noticeable metallic effect – this heterogeneity makes the mouse look more expensive.

On the sides there is a textured surface called MSI DiamondGrip. The non-slip texture allows you to hold the mouse more firmly. Here you will also see small backlight windows, which together with the logo on the case can be easily configured via the MSI Center application.

The same “diamond pattern” on the side parts is repeated on the scroll wheel.

The mouse itself is asymmetrical and therefore suitable for right-handers. The device has six buttons, five of which can be reprogrammed.

OMRON switches are used with a claimed lifespan of up to 60 million clicks. The sound of pressing all buttons is pleasant: the mouse does not creak or squeak.

On the back there are Teflon feet with a unidirectional surface structure. There are also buttons for switching DPI sensitivity and a switch for wireless connection and complete shutdown.

The MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight Wireless can be connected via wireless Bluetooth, wired USB or 2.4 GHz radio. The manufacturer points out the SWIFTSPEED technology, which guarantees a stable connection with low latency.

You can charge the mouse in two ways: via the cable or via the docking station. In the first case, the MSI Snap Charging technology is activated when you connect a Type-C cable to a USB 3.0 port. This allows you to quickly charge the mouse – 15 minutes of charging via cable is enough for a day’s work, provided that the backlight is turned off, of course.

Another option is a base on which the device is placed using a magnet. It looks impressive, but the loading speed is a little slower. Please note: the magnet is strong enough, so if you pick up the mouse with one hand, you will lift the docking station itself briefly.

The model uses a 550 mAh battery. The manufacturer promises up to 150 hours of continuous use with the backlight turned off.

MSI Agility GD72 Gleam Edition

Let’s move on to the carpet, because it’s difficult to call it a carpet: MSI Agility GD72 Gleam Edition is a large gaming surface with a non-standard color and material. The size is an impressive 900mm x 400mm x 3mm, but the manufacturer also has a smaller version, the Agility GD22, measuring 320mm x 220mm x 3mm.

The basis of the carpet is thermopolyurethane with the addition of glass – and this significantly distinguishes it from fabric rugs, both to the touch and to mouse movements.

The model has a reflective effect in the “chameleon” style. It looks unusual and impressive, but does not distract from the game – it does not reflect like a mirror.

Thanks to the materials used, there is a slight cooling effect; fabric rugs don’t even provide that much cooling.

Again, the materials ensure that the MSI Agility GD72 Gleam Edition is moisture resistant. If you accidentally spill a drink, you can simply soak up the liquid with a cloth. We checked whether the drops are really not absorbed.

The manufacturer has included a small microfiber cloth for cleaning. It is noted that it can only be washed with water so as not to damage the top layer.

The base of the carpet is made of rubber and the edges are carefully stitched – everything resembles the best playing surfaces.

Software

Traditionally, all mouse options are located in the MSI Center. Here you can set profiles for the scenarios you need, set the sensor sensitivity, brightness and three-zone backlight modes. You can also reassign button actions or record a macro on them. You can save three of your profiles in the built-in memory.

The company has also prepared three MSI SPEEDSHIFT modes that adjust the accuracy of mouse positioning. With their help, you can extend battery life by choosing one of three modes: for everyday use, for competitive games and precise positioning with micro-gestures.

Experience with use

We spent several sessions in competitive shooters and played session projects.

The mouse glides well over all surfaces and the MSI Agility GD72 Gleam Edition carpet offers a completely different feeling. It takes some getting used to, because this carpet seems to have no friction at all. The mouse moves over it much more willingly, so you need to adjust the sensitivity for it first.

We were unable to remove the mouse sensor with a sharp movement. Your hand won’t slip while you work and play, and you’ll quickly get used to the weight of only 85 grams.

Results and prizes

MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight Wireless is one of the best gaming mice on the market. It’s lightweight, charges quickly, looks great, and works great in games, both wired and wireless. The sensor is sufficient for all tasks, be it a shooting session or simple daily work.

Perfect installation. This is a quiet and fast mouse, without a hint of extraneous noise or play.

Designer’s choice. We give this award to the reflective mat because of its special design and choice of materials. It will make your table different from others.
