Trust Gaming GXT 922 Ybar: Two Minute Review

The GXT 922 Ybar is an affordable gaming mouse that’s more like a premium offering, making it an ideal choice for style-conscious new gamers or those who don’t have the money to outfit their system. Trust has established itself as one of the most prominent budget gaming brands in Europe, offering peripherals and accessories with desirable features such as RGB lighting.

The GXT 922 Ybar gaming mouse is no different, although there are a few inescapable issues, the first of which is regional availability. It’ll cost you £22.99 / €24.99 (about $30 / AU$40), but this mouse is seemingly impossible to find outside of Europe, so unless you’re willing to import one from abroad, it’s unlikely you in one if you live in the US or Australia.

But if you live in a region where the GXT 922 Ybar gaming mouse is available, you’ll find that there are very few alternative options available for the same price. The Razer Basilisk V3 is a premium offering with the same RGB under light, but this will cost you more than three times as much at $69.99 / £69.99 / about AU$130, while the Razer Viper Mini, a mouse that is highly similar to the 922 Ybar, has a suggested retail price of $39.99 / £39.99 / AU$69.95.

We do note that it’s easy to find the Trust GXT Ybar 922 for below its suggested retail price, as in GAME (UK only) for just £14.99, and at that price it’s a steal. It’s not the highest quality product on the market, but if you’re looking to buy your kids’ first gaming setup, or maybe you’re on a budget of your own, this is a great budget choice that still offers a bit of style and functionality.

The mouse itself is made of hard black plastic, with a textured honeycomb pattern on the sides for extra grip. This does help but is less effective than rubber grips so if your hands tend to get a little sweaty while playing you may want to invest in some grip stickers or maybe save some extra money and get a different mouse model to go.
