Today, we are looking at an overview of the AOC AGM700 Gaming Mouse & AMM700 Mouse Mat. The gaming mouse is currently available for £9.26 on Amazon, whilst the mouse mat is available for £10.70 on Amazon.
The mouse features Omron switches, a detachable weight system, and a Pixart PMW 3389 gaming sensor. Both items are also compatible with AOC’s AGON G-Menu Software. The AOC AGM700 is compatible with various operating systems, including Windows and macOS.

PACKAGING AND ACCESSORIES
The majority of AOC’s packaging for its peripherals follows a similar Red & Black gamer orientated theme and the AGM700 and AM700 follow the same pattern. It has been clearly designed with gamers in mind. The front of the box the mouse illustrates and highlights the Pixart 3389 gaming sensor, LightFX compatibility, 50 million click lifespan, RGB Compatability with other AOC devices, as well as being All Key Programmable.
The mouse mat packaging also highlights the 16.8 million colours/customizable RGB, the anti-slip rubber base and the micro-texture cloth surface.
A CLOSER LOOK
One of the first things I liked about this mouse is the inclusion of the removable weights, it weighs 3.17 ounces without the removable weights and 4.09 ounces with the weights attached. It comes pre-installed with all 5 weights, but to me, it felt on the heavy side so I removed 2 of them and it felt so much more natural. Removing them is as simple as turning the mouse upside down, removing the bottom cover and then removing any of the unnecessary weights.
The mouse has 7 programmable buttons, including a dedicated DPI switch (the Red button), the AGM700 enables you to customize your gameplay by assigning various commands or macros to the buttons. This flexibility helps with reaction time in different gaming scenarios.
The mouse has RGB, although on a minimalistic level in terms of the scroll wheel illuminates, as does the AGON logo. The possibilities are endless in terms of how you’d like this set up on your system. But you will need to download and install AOC G-Menu to be able to customise it and any other AOC accessories to your liking.
Whilst we are on the subject of G-Menu, I’ve pre-installed this for a quick overview of just how much you can customize this device. The first screen you are welcomed with is to configure the buttons. To change any of them, you simply click the drop-down on the right-hand side which corresponds with the setting you’d like to change and you can adjust them easily. There is also a macro manager in the bottom right-hand section of the app.
I was more interested in the Light FX Sync options to see how the RGB integrated with other AOC devices. I wanted both the mouse mat and the mouse to illuminate the same colours at the same time. It is as easy as clicking on Light FX Sync, selecting both devices and choosing the RGB pattern. This piece of software allows the same kind of customizability as higher-end devices. A very nice touch at this price point.
As you can now see, both the mat and the mouse itself are now following the same pattern that I set up. Not bad for accessories at such a cheap price. I’m genuinely impressed. With onboard memory, the AGM700 can store 3 profiles directly on the mouse. This means users can take their preferred settings with them wherever they go, without the need for additional software installations or configurations. Initially, this will need setting up via the software but another nice feature by AOC.
This gaming mouse is equipped with a high-precision optical sensor, typically offering a sensitivity range of up to 16,000 DPI (dots per inch). This allows for quick and accurate cursor movement, essential for precise targeting in fast-paced gaming situations. I took it for some practice in Guild Wars 2 and Fortnite and it didn’t let me down once.
The red and black nylon cable features on both the mouse and the pad and looks stylish and will look great if you’re already using AOC peripherals. We recently reviewed the AOC GH401 Wireless Gaming Headset which would complement this set-up nicely. Although the headset was on the pricier side, you could bag all 3 peripherals for just over the £100 mark. Which makes it seem much better value for money.
I’ve been so impressed by this combo, that for now, I’ve decided to stick with them as my daily driver. I was torn between keeping the mouse at home or taking it into the office with me for work.
AMM700 Mouse Mat
Now if you’re buying such a cheap but feature-rich mouse, you may be in the market for a new Mouse Mat. The AMM700 will complement this just nicely given its compatibility with the G-Menu Software.
Optimal Grip and Stability: The AMM700 mouse mat features a non-slip rubber base that prevents it from sliding around during intense gaming sessions. The rubber base ensures that the mouse mat stays firmly in place, providing you with a stable surface for precision in those high-pressured gaming moments. Cleaning the AMM700 is easy. Its surface is resistant to stains and water, allowing for easy removal of dirt or spills with a simple wipe with a damp cloth. I wouldn’t intentionally go spilling anything over it though.
The AOC AMM700 features a sleek and minimalist design, making it a visually appealing addition to any gaming or professional setup. Its clean black colour and subtle branding blend well with various aesthetics. The RGB on this isn’t overbearing either, it looks sleek when illuminated across all 4 edges of the pad. One thing I did notice though, on the mouse mat, the AGON logo in the top right-hand corner is slightly off-centre. The mat is on the larger side coming in at 36cm x 26cm.
I found an extended gaming session on both peripherals comfortable and the mouse mat adds to this. So I’d definitely recommend picking up both if you’re in the market for a new mouse.
AOC has presented both of these peripherals at an incredible price point. The mouse has more features than some costing double if not triple the price. I am really blown away as I was expecting something disappointing this cheap but boy was I wrong. It’s incredible value for money. I couldn’t get over the fact that the mouse mat costs more than the mouse. Yet the mouse is the most important aspect of this overview.
DESIGN & PERFORMANCE
The design of both devices is sleek and modern and the added RGB is a very nice touch. The packaging on both products is appealing. The removable weight system in the mouse is a very nice addition, especially at this price point.
Both products just look great when paired together, and will fit into almost any gaming environment. The cable length is 1.8m which means you should have more than enough slack on the cable to plug it in at the back of your PC.
We’ve decided to award the AOC AGM700 the EnosTech Value award, given the insanely low price point for an impressive, configurable piece of hardware.
We would like to thank AOC for sending in this sample of the AGM700 and AMM700.
