The GXT 922 Ybar is an affordable gaming mouse that looks more like a premium offering, which makes it an ideal choice for style-conscious new gamers or those without a stack of cash to drop on equipping 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, though there are a few inescapable issues, the first being regional availability. It’ll set you back £22.99 / €24.99 (around $30 / AU$40), but this mouse is seemingly impossible to find outside of Europe, so unless you’re willing to import one in from overseas, it’s unlikely you’ll run into one if you live in the USA or Australia.

Still, if you do live in a region where the GXT 922 Ybar gaming mouse is available, you’ll find that there are very few alternative options available at the same price point. The Razer Basilisk V3 is a premium offering that has the same RGB under light, but this will set you back over three times as much at $69.99 / £69.99 / around AU$130, while the Razer Viper Mini, a mouse that closely resembles the 922 Ybar, has an MSRP of $39.99 / £39.99 / AU$69.95.

We do note that it’s easy to find the Trust GXT Ybar 922 for under its MSRP though, such as in GAME (UK only) for just £14.99, and at that price this is 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 perhaps if you’re on a shoestring budget yourself, this is a great budget choice that still provides a bit of style and functionality.

The mouse itself is made from hard black plastic, with a textured honeycomb pattern at the sides for additional grip. This does help, but is less effective than rubberized grips so if your hands tend to get a tad sweaty during gameplay you might want to invest in some grip stickers or perhaps save a little extra cash and go for another model of mouse.
