Elephant Wireless Mouse ELE-M521 Unboxing and Review

Elephant Wireless Mouse

Category: Wireless Mouse
Price: P495
Bought from: DataBlitz (Gateway Cubao Branch)

Elephant has always been a trusted brand of mine when it comes to wireless peripherals. And when one eventually breaks due to overuse or old age, there’s no doubt that I’ll be going for the same brand. Unless another brand would step forward and match them in terms of affordability, durability and performance.

Alas, my Elephant Extreme bade goodbye a few days ago as it probably had too much of a beating when I raid in Final Fantasy XIV. It’s not entirely broken- it’s just that the scroll that doesn’t work properly anymore (which can be very inconvenient). It did last for almost two years though so it had a pretty good run.

Instead of buying another Elephant Extreme (whose design I like the most), I decided to go for a different model: the ELE-M521. If the Extreme is for gaming and the Milki is for casual use, then this one looks like it stands in the middle for both aesthetically (they all have the same features anyway). I like the fact it has lesser crevices than the Extreme, giving it lesser places for dust to settle in.

I’ve been using it for about two weeks now, and I’m pretty content with the overall feel and function of the mouse. Very responsive, and replacing the batteries isn’t really a hassle since you won’t be changing them for weeks to months (depends on usage). This is really the best wireless mouse under P1,500, and it’s only P495!

    I bought one of these recently, and trying it out now, it isn’t connecting to my computer. Now that could be a normal mouse problem, so my question to you is: does the light from the underside of the mouse that tracks the surface stay on constantly? Or does it fade after a few seconds? Mine fades and I want to know if that is the reason why it does not work

      Hi Daniel. The light under the mouse stays on and doesn’t disappear when using it. Perhaps a battery problem or factory defect? You should have it checked where you bought it and ask for a replacement.
