Review: NZXT Lift 2 Symm



The box:

As for the packaging, we’re back to the brand’s usual white and purple colors. As you can see, the front of the box features an illustration of the Lift 2 SYMM seen from above. A few elements are highlighted, such as its weight, its polling rate and the sensitivity achievable by the sensor.

On the back, we find more or less the same thing, with two illustrations of the mouse and more features highlighted. We also know that this model uses optical switches. If you’re looking for detailed specifications, you’ll have to look at the sides of the box.

The Bundle:

NZXT Lift 2 Symm

Red card for NZXT, which finally offers no accessories with its mouse, nothing, not even a warranty or safety guide… It’s a pity, since we were regaining faith with ASUS, who offered us a set of extra pads or adhesive tape to stick on the mouse, but here, nothing of the sort. Disappointing…

With this model, we find a rather basic model in its shape. In fact, its shape is similar to that of our Model O from Glorious. The design is sober, with a simple NZXT reminder in very dark grey on the top of the knob, and that’s all there is to it.

In fact, we’re surprised to see that the American brand doesn’t even offer an aRGB zone for the thumbwheel. This is in stark contrast to the company’s usual products, especially as the first-generation Lift was illuminated in the form of a border around its base. In short, if you don’t like lights in all directions, you should be satisfied.

Finally, the sides of the mouse feature small dots designed to improve grip. This is also one of the innovations compared to the previous generation, which featured a completely smooth shell.

As for the buttons, the left and right clicks are separated from the rest of the casing. Just above the scroll wheel, we find a DPI scroll button (which can be set via CAM). On the left-hand side are the “next” and “previous” buttons.

Under the mouse, it’s immediately clear why this model is so light: there’s no bottom! In fact, the PCB and all the internals of this model are exposed. Nevertheless, to maintain a certain rigidity, paddles are present, and this works, as the mouse retains good rigidity.

Otherwise, there are three PTFE pads, a low-friction material for maximum glide. These are located at the ends of the Lift 2 SYMM, with a third surrounding the sensor.
