The Ninjutso Sora is a wireless gaming mouse that is light and has a shape that is the same on both sides. This mouse’s body is made of solid plastic, which is interesting because many lightweight gaming mice are made with small holes in their bodies to make them lighter overall. Inside this mouse are Huano Pink Dot switches for the main click buttons and a PixArt PAW3395 sensor, which at the time of writing was one of the most accurate and consistent sensors on the market.
This mouse has a simple look with a matte black plastic body, glossy black side buttons, and a logo on the palm rest. It is made of white plastic and has a black rubber handle.
The way this mouse is made is impressive. When you move the mouse, there are no parts that shake or sounds that rattle. Even though the plastic is thin, the whole thing feels strong. If you squeeze the sides of the mouse or the area below the left- and right-click buttons, you can move it a little bit. But this flexibility doesn’t cause any problems in everyday use.
This mouse has a comfortable symmetrical shape, and the buttons feel well-placed and easy to reach for most hand sizes and grips. There is a medium-sized hump toward the back that gives your palm a good place to rest. Both sides are slightly angled inward, which makes it easy to quickly pick up and move the mouse.
Ninjutsu says that this mouse can work for up to 70 hours on a single charge. When the battery level drops to less than 10%, a small red LED light flashes between the left and right click buttons.
This mouse has a thin, flexible charging cord that moves easily across desks and mousepads. It reminds me of paracord. But it still has some bumps from the way it was packaged.
The Ninjutsu Sora has great feet that move very smoothly on mousepads and desks. If you use them directly on a desk, they make a soft scratching sound. But this doesn’t change how well they can glide. This mouse comes with four feet, but if you prefer, you can use the two larger feet that come in the box.
You can set up all of the buttons on this mouse, even the one on the bottom, which by default switches between CPI settings. The left and right click buttons use Huano Pink Dot switches, which feel light and are easy to click quickly, but have a crisp and satisfying feel.
This mouse has great performance for sensor latency. The sensor responds quickly to the movements you make with your mouse, and the timing of these movements is very close to the timing of the cursor’s movements on-screen.
The CPI performance of this mouse is very good. Its sensor is very accurate, and when you move your mouse, the cursor moves on your screen in a way that is very close to what you did with your mouse.
The polling rate on this mouse can be set to 125Hz, 500Hz, or 1000Hz. This sensor has a “Motion Sync” feature that tries to match up sensor readings with polling events. This can make games run more smoothly and consistently. At the time of writing, the Ninjutso Sora’s companion software didn’t have a way to turn this feature on or off. This is different from other mice that use the same sensor but have software that lets you turn this feature on or off.
The mouse wheel has a precise feel, works quietly, and has clear steps with smooth transitions between them. The wheel is made of plastic and has a rubber surface that makes it easy to grip. The middle click button needs a little more force to be pressed than on many other gaming mice, which is good if you often click it by accident.
On both Windows and macOS, all of the default button functions work. The software, on the other hand, only works with Windows.
“This software is easy to use, and all of the options are on one page.” You can change many settings, such as the CPI, the lift-off distance, and the debounce time.
The Ninjutso Sora’s raw performance is very good. It has great click latency, which makes the game feel very responsive. At the same time, its sensor provides consistent motion and accuracy, so the movements you make with your mouse are closely matched by what you see on screen.
The Ninjutso Sora is a wireless gaming mouse with a symmetrical shape and a solid plastic shell that is surprisingly light for its size. It’s also one of a new group of mice that use PixArt’s 3395 sensor, which is one of the most accurate and consistent sensors on the market right now. This mouse has a simple design without RGB lighting, like the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT and the Razer Viper V2 Pro. Its gaming performance is also on par with these more expensive options, making it a standout option worth considering given its lower price.
