Feenix is a small company that came seemingly out of nowhere, but that doesn’t mean they don’t make a good product. The Nascita is one of the more comfortable and classy gaming mice I have used in a while. It really is a fantastic looking mouse, and it feels just as good as it looks. The ergonomic shape lends itself to pretty much any grip type you can think of – however if I were to pick a grip for this mouse, it is nearly perfect for a palm grip. Feenix kept things pretty simple in the button department, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Aside from the standard right, left and scroll wheel, the Nascita has two thumb buttons, and two buttons above the scroll wheel for adjusting DPI. As an added bonus, it even has an LCD readout of current DPI settings.
While the mouse is extremely comfortable to hold, I do have my reservations about build quality, specifically on the palm piece. The right and left mouse buttons are attached to the same piece as the palm rest, and occasionally when I click I can feel the palm rest move. So far there is no noticeable damage, but it definitely shifts a little bit when you click. Once I’ve played around with it more I will consider updating this section of the review, but for now in terms of build quality I remain unassured.
As high end gaming mice go, the Nascita keeps up pretty well in performance. It has an 8200 DPI sensor, 1ms response and 1000Hz polling rate. Unfortunately, there aren’t quite enough features to justify the $99 price point. Feenix is going for exclusivity, which is a great move – but you can get the same performance and features (sans the DPI LCD readout) from a mouse for almost half the cost. However, like purchasing a car from a dealer, buying through Feenix does come with certain perks (like your own personal support manager). Check out their site for more info.
The Nascita is a really good mouse, however I think Feenix needs to drop the price , or include some features like onboard profiles (As seen in the $80 Steel Series Sensei) to justify the price tag.
