Lighting contains all the necessary RGB settings for a mouse.  The wheel and DPI button have lights and you can adjust changing colors, or use a single steady color.  The DPI button can display a different color or pattern with each DPI mode selected so the light will indicate what DPI you have selected which is a nice feature because there are no popup notifications.

Polling Rate Test

The Dualblader supports up to a 2000Hz polling rate for extremely low latency.  Running Mouse Rate Checker, I was able to get up to 1825Hz reported rate, although this program wasn’t written for polling rates quite this fast.  The mouse feels extremely responsive and does function at the advertised polling rate.

 

The tracking is as expected, precise and accurate.  I had no issues using it across my standard surfaces, wood, paper, mouse pad, and plastic desktops.  The sensor is a high-end high quality that will be competitive with any other high-end sensor on the market.  The sensor has a nice precision feel to it, and I am able to run this with a higher DPI setting than my standard daily driver mice, which translates to faster target acquisition time with less overshoot.
