The left and right click buttons are precise, crisp, and quiet. The scroll wheel is also precise with good resistance and is clickable for assigning functions.
At the base, there is a toggle to switch between wired, Bluetooth, and wireless modes, buttons for pairing and DPI adjustment, and a storage slot for the USB dongle. The mouse also includes four PTFE pads for smooth gliding movement, a non-lit ROG logo on the back, and “ROG” written on the right side. Additionally, it comes with anti-slip mouse grip tapes for added grip and flair.
Overall, the ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition is a well-constructed, and premium-looking mouse that feels comfortable to use and glides smoothly.
Features & Performance
The ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition is equipped with a new ROG AimPoint sensor that offers adjustable DPI between 100-36,000, tracking speed of 650 IPS, and up to 50g of acceleration. The sensor provides accurate tracking with sensitivity adjustment options. One of the key features of the mouse is the built-in battery that eliminates the need for replaceable ones, and can be recharged using the USB-C port on the front side of the mouse.
This mouse offers multiple connectivity options including wired USB, 2.4GHz wireless, or Bluetooth, and supports pairing with up to three devices. Its ROG SpeedNova wireless technology ensures low-latency, reliable wireless performance, and optimized battery efficiency in the 2.4GHz RF mode.
Customization options are available through the Armoury software, which allows you to adjust the default DPI settings and manually switch using the DPI button at the base of the mouse. In our testing, the mouse performed well with a very good overall impression. Quick movements can be made with very less effort due to the mouse being extremely lightweight but can cause some soreness during long periods of use as it’s not very ergonomic.
In terms of buttons, the main buttons click very precisely, feel light and crisp, and are not too loud. The side buttons are easily accessible and the matte, textured surface provides a good grip. The ROG Micro Switches guarantee a 70-million-click lifespan and controlled, consistent click-feel. The scroll wheel offers good resistance and can be used with precision. Overall, we did not encounter any connection or delay issues during our testing.

In terms of battery life, ASUS promises up to 90 hours of use on full charge without lighting or 79 hours with default lighting. In our tests, the mouse was fully functional for about the 70 hours we used it from a single charge and still kept going. It also charges back pretty quickly.
