MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight Review in Spanish (Full Analysis)
This time we have with us the two new mouse MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight and MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight Wireless that arrive to fight in the high range thanks to its sensor PixArt PAW 3395 of 26,000 DPI. They are designed to give us a comfortable grip and high movement speed thanks to its adjusted weight of 75 g, designed for FPS gaming.
The USB model has a polling rate of 8000 Hz, while the Wireless includes charging dock to make its use more comfortable. The aesthetic section has been strengthened with 3 RGB zones individually manageable from MSI Center along with more control options.
We thank M: YES your confidence in us by sending us these products for analysis.
MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight technical characteristics
We carry out the joint Unboxing of the MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweightwhere both use flexible cardboard boxes with interior receptacle of rigid material for greater protection. The box of the Wireless model is twice as big, since you need to store the additional charging base.
The content of the cable model will be:
- MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight
While the Wireless model box brings:
- MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight Wireless
- USB Cable
- charging dock
- wireless connection dongle
Exterior design and construction
The new ones MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight and MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight Wireless They are raised with exactly the same design, with the only difference being that the cable version, which will also be fixed. The weight of the normal version without counting the cable will be only 75gwhile Wireless goes up to 85 g due to battery. In any case, both figures will be very tight considering that the chassis is not perforated and they have RGB in 3 zones.
With the camera looking at the upper part of the mouse, we can see that it has a rear area and, above all, a wider front area than the central one to provide better ergonomics, clearly being designed for the right hand, so it’s not an ambidextrous mouse. Its height of 45 mm makes the natural grip position be palm type, filling practically the entire hand and giving us a high position for the buttons. Fingertip use is practically ruled out, but the claw type is still made comfortable enough.
The main buttons They are separated from the rest of the chassis and the central area, being quite wide and with a slight concavity in the front to improve the position of the fingers. They have a audible click and minimum travelalthough a little heavier (you have to exert more force) than other mice, but the buttons feel firm and there is no clearance or gap.
In the central zone we have the island with only the wheel, no DPI button or in profile, being this of large dimensions with dotted rubber cover to avoid slipping. Have a scroll with marked and slow jumpsbut it’s pretty quiet. Both the button surface and the back will be completely smooth and have a good grip.
We then move to side zones, which are curved inwards with the design adapted to the grip of the fingers. But the most interesting thing about them is that they have a rubber outer layer textured and diamond pattern where the Mystic Light lighting system with 4 LEDs on both sides. The side navigation buttons are quite protruding and stay just in the position of the thumb, although the sharp-edged design is not very comfortable to press, losing touch sensitivity.
Finally we go to the base of the MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight where both mice use a total of 6 small PTFE feet (Teflon), 5 of them on the edge with curved edges to maximize travel speed, and one in the center that prevents dirt from entering the sensor.
The Wireless version is obviously more interesting as it has two charging contacts in the central area, which is designed to be positioned on the charging dock. In both cases we have the DPI button here located, and a additional switch for the wireless model that allows select Bluetooth, 2.4 GHz, or off.
He USB-C connector It is extremely hidden inside, with a small rail that prevents the headboard from moving, since it is connected. However, this design will mean that not all USB-C cables can be connected to the mouse, for example if the original one breaks, since the space is very tight.
The charging dock It has a compact cylindrical design and with the connection at the top where we simply have to place the mouse to start the process. It has a slot for store the connection donglewhile the USB-C port for power supply is located on the base.
Features and internal characteristics
We now continue detailing the common specifications for the two MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight. Equipped with an optical sensor PixArt PAW 3395 with a maximum resolution of 26,000 DPI, although by default they are set to 5 jumps of 400, 800, 1600, 3200 and 6400 DPI. The switches will be of the OMRON brand with a durability of more than 60 million clicks.
The exclusive characteristic of the normal model will be to have a 8000Hz polling rate, that is, the signal will be refreshed every 0.125 ms. In practice we already know that 1000 Hz is enough to not experience latency. Since the USB Cable is fixed in the unit, has a design FriXionFree which obviously will avoid as far as possible friction with elements of the desk with an external mesh and very low weight.
Regarding the particular characteristics of the MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight Wirelesswe have a 1000Hz polling rate both wireless and USB mode. It has 3 connection options; wired, Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz frequency, the latter being the recommended one to obtain the best performance in games. The cable used for charging is also FriXionFree.
The battery capacity is not specified, but obviously it has it incorporated so that it does not need to use batteries. In usage tests we have registered a consumption of 7% in 2.4 GHz mode at 1000 Hz with RGB activated in 2 hours of use, extrapolating the data we get about 28 hours of use. If we deactivate the RGB and lower the polling rate, it will last much longer.
MSI Center will be in charge of managing the control of the MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight and Wireless, which will have practically the same options except for battery monitoring and polling rate selection.
In the first section we can customize the function of the 5 buttons available, being able to create macros and manage the configuration through profiles. In the second section we will have the options related to the performance of the sensor such as the DPI jumps, polling rate, lift-off distance adjustment in 2 levels and synchronization that we recommend leaving it disabled. The last section provides us with a setting for MSI Speed Shift.
In section of lightning we will have to install it through the internal extension of MSI Center Mystic Light. We have several predefined effects that will apply the three zones simultaneously, and the custom mode where we can manage each zone individually, but only with the solid color option.
As a reference, we will carry out some behavior tests with the Mouse test software, the results of which will be purely indicative.
- Variance the movement: The test consists of moving the mouse to the sides, at different speeds and at a constant distance with the help of a bounded enclosure. By keeping sync mode off, the sensor delivers its pure unfiltered capacity.
- pixel skipping: Performing movements at different DPI, the pixel jump is not appreciated in any case unless we configure very high DPI. With the lift off distance adjustment we can obtain better performance depending on the type of surface and better control in the takeoff and landing movements of the mouse.
- tracking: There is also no pixel tracking, and the pointer never experiences strange jumps and plane changes. The angle adjustment option is not available.
Final words and conclusion about the MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight
MSI bets on high-end with these two new mice, a normal variant with a more affordable USB connection and wireless for those who need greater mobility. They are committed to a sensor that has been more than tested and analyzed, such as the PAW 3395 by PixArt that it will work great in any situation.
They are mouse quite tall and that they ask for a palm type gripare quite agile in movement thanks to their adjusted weight of 75 and 85 gachieving it without a perforated chassis and with 3 RGB zones that add extra weight. The combination between ergonomic design with rubber grips and aesthetics is very good, enough to be the best mouse of the brand Until now for us.
To the additional advantage of the Wireless model is added a bacharging port that will avoid connecting the USB cable to the mouse, always good news for comfort. The 8000 Hz polling rate of the wired model It does not seem like a real advantage in gaming, since 1000 Hz is enough to have zero latency, but hey, it’s what the market demands to compete with other rivals from Razer or Corsair that also have it.
The price of MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight will be 109.99 euros and the one of MSI Clutch GM51 Lightweight Wireless amounts to 74.99 euros. MSI goes one step further with respect to the GM41 Lightweight by improving the sensor and optimizing ergonomics and aesthetics, all while maintaining a good price compared to the competition, so we see it as a very good purchase, especially for FPS games where few buttons are required.
