Qpad DX-20 Review – User Experience and Conclusion

It’s been seven years since Qpad released a new mouse and in our time reading about it and using it we noted some quite odd aspects. A lot of it is to do with the marketing, for example the product page talks about how the LED strip lights up the “cursor” in low light situations. Or that that the Tech Spec page is missing key specifications such as dimensions, weight, sensor model… or that Qpad claim this is an ambidextrous mouse. It’s not, it’s a right handed mouse. No left handed gamer is going to want to action the “thumb buttons” with their outer fingers.

Quality control is also an issue. There was a blip on the finish of our left button of our mouse which felt uncomfortable until we filed it down a touch (though it was still a bit annoying). These things happen and it is likely a one off but what shouldn’t be happening is simple errors in the software. For example if you browse through the firmware update screens above you will see the formatting is broken in some screens and at one point the mouse model name changes to another model. These sorts of things shouldn’t happen on a mouse aimed at this consumer group.

We also felt the software provided by Qpad wasn’t particularly intuitive. Yes, all the key settings are available but the interface is basic at best and really, who knows what they are going to find in the “basic” screen compared to the “advanced” screen. It also lacks features like cloud functionality that a number of the competition now provide.

So yes, something strange is going on at Qpad and that dents our confidence in the product as a whole. What’s changed at the company in the last 7-years that they can’t even market or test a mouse appropriately?

On the plus side, in our time with the mouse it performed well. The sensor tracked nicely, the main buttons are Omron so should be durable and we noticed no stability issues. That said, with an RRP of €69 the overall consumer experience isn’t great and there are better mice out there at a lower price point.
