Here’s a quick review for you guys – the ASUS Marshmellow Mouse MD100, or just the ASUS Mouse MD100 for short. While the “Marshmellow” is a part of the official name, I don’t see ASUS printing that name on the mouse packaging itself.
That aside, what does this mouse actually have to offer? Quite a lot, actually. And it’s a funky mouse for sure.
The ASUS Marshmellow Mouse MD100 is available in two different sets – one with a dark blue bottom, and another one with a marble kitchen countertop lookalike. We got both in our hands, but we want to focus on the latter.
All in all, the ASUS Marshmellow Mouse MD100 is a fairly simple mouse with a few key highlights. Firstly, it’s thin. For many people, they want a mouse that is thin and easily pocketable (or baggable, if that’s a word) and this mouse can serve that need nicely.
Secondly, the silence. This is actually our second encounter with a very flat mouse that comes with really silent clickers. I’m not complaining though, since I do love silent peripherals like the Kailh Deep Sea switch that we looked at recently over at Tech Critter.
Then thirdly comes the aesthetics. Yes, this is a selling point too. For many people, using a mouse in public is a time to show off their personality. And ASUS combined functionality with aesthetics by offering you a way to store the dongle, interchangeable top cover, and also a hoop that you can choose whether to use or not. It can easily be hidden under the top cover and moved out of the way – that’s smart.
It is also here that we can find the AA battery compartment. While it is unfortunate that ASUS is not using a rechargeable lithium-ion battery in this mouse, I think it’s okay since an IKEA Ladda battery will last for a very long time.
I presume that this hoop is for those who want to carry the mouse around with a pinky finger or something like that.
And fourthly – the connectivity modes. At the bottom of the ASUS Marshmellow Mouse MD100, we can find a switch. Pushing it up enters the 2.4GHz dongle connectivity mode, pushing it to the middle will turn the mouse off, and pushing it down will turn it to Bluetooth mode.
There is a handy little indicated LED that lights up in green for 2.4GHz dongle mode and blue for Bluetooth.
At the bottom part is here where we can find a rocker to turn the DPI up or down. Unfortunately, there are no custom DPI settings available.
Should you buy the ASUS Marshmellow Mouse MD100?
We know that the ultraslim flat profile mouse is not for everyone. However, if you’re okay with this mouse profile and want something silent, looks pretty, and functional at the same time – then perhaps this one is for you.
We do not have the price of this mouse as of now but we think that if it’s about RM100, then it should be a good deal.
UPDATE: By the way, the price of this mouse is at RM145.
