With the XM1r, Endgame Gear presents another revision of their critically acclaimed XM1. Most of the changes have been made under the hood: PixArt’s PAW3370 sensor capable of 19,000 CPI is used, specifically tuned for the lowest latency possible. For the main buttons, Kailh GM 8.0 switches rated for 80 million clicks are used, and they are pre-sorted to guarantee an operating force of 55–60 gf, ensuring consistent actuation force. Instead of the default smaller feet, an included set of larger feet can be installed. The cable has been updated as well, providing better durability while retaining flexibility. Lastly, the software has been rebuilt from the ground up and comes with extended functionality. Variants are available in matte black, matte white, glossy black, and glossy white. For this review, I’ll be taking a look at the Dark Frost (matte) and Dark Reflex (glossy) versions in black.
