SteelSeries Prime vs SteelSeries Aerox 3: Wireless Mouse

SteelSeries recently released a new line of “Prime” mice, along with a matching Arctis headset. Among the 3 new mouse models offered, we find the SteelSeries Prime Wireless, the wireless version of the base model, and the Prime + equipped with an OLED screen for settings.

Sensor:

  • Sensor: SteelSeries TrueMove Air
  • Sensor type: Optical
  • CPI: 100 to 18,000, in increments of 100
  • IPS: 400, on QcK SteelSeries surfaces
  • Acceleration: 40G
  • Hardware acceleration: None (zero hardware acceleration)

This complicated sanitary period will not prevent SteelSeries from continuing to innovate its range. Starting today, gamers can discover the Aerox 3 Wireless mouse, a new model that is small in size, lightweight, and features a stunning pierced shell as well as next-generation USB-C connectivity.

Sensor:

  • Sensor: SteelSeries TrueMove Air

Pros and Cons

SteelSeries PrimeSteelSeries Aerox 3
Good battery lifeUltra-lightweight
Fast USB-C chargingBluetooth connection
Comfortable gripFast charging is fun
No profile switchNot suitable for large hands
The price is a bit highSpongy side buttons

SteelSeries Prime- This new 2021 model is currently offered at $167, which puts it in the average price set by competitors for an equivalent “eSport” mouse. This newcomer, like the Arctis Prime helmet, does not encumber anything. Its dimensions are reasonable and allow a very comfortable palm grip. With its 80 grams on the scale, this SteelSeries Prime Wireless is capricious in fingertip (taken with your fingertips).

As for the settings, there is not much to eat. The bare minimum for the competition, as some would say. There is indeed a delicately notched central dial as well as two side buttons. The catch is that no buttons are visible to change the DPI profile. To do this, you will need to use a switch located under the mouse. It is therefore impossible to change the sensitivity of the optical sensor in the middle of the game. It’s a bit of a shame since all competing models offer this option. The player will still record and switch between 4 frequencies and up to 5 preconfigured CPIs.

SteelSeries Aerox 3- The little news from SteelSeries has nothing to envy its big sisters. The mouse has a powerful in-house TrueMove Air sensor that can offer up to 18,000 DPI for 400 IPS (calculation performed on the brand’s mousepads). The accessory is also propelled by its very lightweight (only 66g!) And can withstand an acceleration of 40G. Its effectiveness on the battlefield is therefore formidable. Despite its small dimensions and lightness, the SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless has everything of a champion and offers flawless gaming sessions.

Its ergonomics are also particular. With its small dimensions, the SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless is not really suitable for a palm grip. We prefer to fall back on claw grip or fingertip for easier use, and we, therefore, do not recommend it for large hands. Its matte black plastic shell is slightly rough. This surface, therefore, prevents slipping over hours of use.

The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless mouse is a fine example of the best in performance while being lightweight. With only 66g on the clock, it wreaks havoc when moving or aiming quickly. Its design is clearly deja vu, but it’s still impressive to admire the little circuits of the beast with efficient RGB lighting. Currently offered at just under $128, it is the ideal companion for gaming sessions that deserve great responsiveness, just like office use. An effective versatility earned it a nice positive note!

Design

The shell of this new SteelSeries Prime Wireless mouse consists of a very lightly textured black plastic. This prevents the hand from slipping, but as we told you, it is not enough to take it with your fingertips. Gliding is carried out without any difficulty thanks to 3 large PTFE pads placed at the front and the back of the mouse’s underside.

The switches are high-end Prestige OM models with a lifespan of 100 million clicks. It consists of a steel torsion spring held in place by a neodymium magnet and operates with infrared beam activation. The responsiveness is, therefore there, we did not perceive any latency. We have the excellent TrueMove Air optical model on the sensor side, which has already proven itself on perfect models such as the Aerox 3 or the Rival 5. Designed in collaboration with PixArt, it delivers flawless 1: 1 tracking. It can also give tilt tracking, not triggering unwanted activation when lifting the Prime Wireless. With an 18,000 DPI maximum for 400 IPS, the TrueMove Air is a perfect ally for Esport’s competition.

The main feature of this wireless model is its Quantum 2.0 Wireless connection standard. This technology optimizes the connection by the dual-channel, which transmits simultaneously on 40 possible frequencies to offer a reactivity equal to a wired controller. The loss of information would also be zero, and the movement is transcribed naturally. Even if a channel is interrupted, the mouse will not register any offset a priori.

In addition, the second big positive point of this model is its autonomy. The SteelSeries Prime Wireless effectively offers up to 100 hours of non-stop playtime. Since it does not include any RGB effects other than the dial, battery use is almost exclusively reserved for the optical sensor and switches. The latest generation USB-C port offers nearly 40 hours of play for 15 minutes of charging.

SteelSeries Aerox 3- This design allows the mouse to save up to 90% of the energy consumed for an equivalent but unequipped wireless mouse. The performance, therefore, remains optimal and verified since no drop in speed was noticed during our many hours of testing.

We will still put a small mention on the battery life. The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless has two connection modes. The first, at 2.4 GHz, offers up to 80 hours of battery life, compared to 200 hours for the Bluetooth connection. The latter is inevitably less precise for video games but remains very practical for office automation or special cases such as Apple Macs.

In addition, this new mouse model incorporates the new Quantum Wireless 2.0 technology, which allows performance close to a wired mouse. It must be admitted that, for several years, wireless mice have been able to mature their communication systems. The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless is clearly an example of the culmination of these advancements. The communication technology onboard is optimized by 2 wireless channels which transmit simultaneously on 40 possible frequencies. Therefore, the wireless signal is not interrupted when a channel is lost.

Another highlight for this new mouse model is that the shell does not stain. It is also pierced, and therefore gives a glimpse of its circuits. But don’t panic; the SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless is AquaBarrier certified and resistant to humidity and dust. This is not really a positive point in itself, but a necessity. It’s best to protect all those electronic systems when we can show them off in the open. That said, this protection will not prevent dust from building up inside. You should therefore not hesitate to buy a can of compressed air to clean this internal section.

Conclusion!

This new SteelSeries Prime Wireless is, therefore indeed, a perfect model for the competition. It is not encumbered with anything and does not present too prominent RGB to maintain autonomy. But we still regret that these sacrifices cost the disappearance of a profile switch below the dial. Beyond that, this model of 2021 delivers an excellent autonomy of 100 hours with a fast charge, resistant and extremely responsive switches, as well as really correct handling. It is recommended for players accustomed to long gaming sessions but to avoid the grip of the fingertips. With this in mind, we recommend a model equipped with rubbers on the sides or very light like the SteelSeries Aerox 3.

The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless mouse is a fine example of the very best performance while being lightweight. With only 66g on the clock, it wreaks havoc when moving or aiming quickly. Its design is clearly deja vu, but it’s still impressive to admire the little circuits of the beast with efficient RGB lighting.

Corsair M65 RGB Ultra Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Corsair M65 RGB ULTRA is the latest addition to the Corsair mouse stable. This model is also a real concentrate of technology, designed for those looking for something heavier (precisely concerning weight) than those that Corsair has recently launched. But weight isn’t the only detail that catches the eye. 

PROSCONS

Corsair M65 RGB ULTRA is a mouse with extremely peculiar shapes. Its structure is designed only for right-handed users since both the programmable buttons and the side shapes are precisely designed for use with the right hand. However, a form factor that fans of the brand and the M series will recognize and appreciate.

The M60 model made its debut in 2011, 10 years ago. From the first minutes, however, the hand, at least ours, is at ease. Each finger finds its place, and even those who use the artisan grip will have no problems of any kind. It may be a little lower than we would have expected, but we did not encounter any fatigue or other issues related to prolonged use. As usual, the device accompanied us for several days, not only in gaming use but also in work, to allow us prolonged tests involving the use of software and video games.

Design

Corsair M65 RGB ULTRA hides many other essential features. The body below, which glimpses out from the front and back, is in aluminum. The resistance of the product is therefore out of the question. The upper layer is made of plastic, pleasant to the touch, and not too smooth, just enough to guarantee a sufficient grip. To increase the grip, there are also the lateral knurls where the thumb and little finger rest.

As mentioned in the introduction, Corsair M65 RGB ULTRA is a mouse that boasts, unlike the many coming on the market lately (as well as Corsair’s Saber PRO RGB Wireless ), a weight that can even exceed 100 grams. It weighs 97 grams, but in the back, the one that houses the sensor, so to speak, it is possible to insert three additional weights that allow you to go up to 115 grams. The peculiarity then is not only the fact of inserting these three weights but also arranging them differently or using only one or two of them to create one’s balance. And the way to balance the mouse is also helpful for another feature that we will discover shortly.

There are two more programmable buttons before the mouse wheel, useful for cycling between DPI configurations. The wheel is huge and has a “tire” style cover that guarantees excellent grip. The feedback of the button integrated in the wheel itself is more than discreet. A few technical hints before continuing further. The main buttons are the CORSAIR QUICKSTRIKE that we had already appreciated in the SABER PRO RGB Wireless review combined with switches OMRON optics , designed to guarantee a practically instantaneous speed of implementation. The two buttons can be pressed along their entire structure. The smoothness of the mouse is guaranteed by 4 classic PTFE feet that follow the particular structure of the aluminum body. 

Performance

Here we have the wired variant of Corsair’s new M65 RGB ULTRA. Also, in this case, we are dealing with a long cable (1.8 meters) in Paracord. It’s like not having it. The cable runs smoothly over the mat or surface where you would usually use the mouse without hindrance. Indeed, it is precisely the presence of the cable that allows a polling rate 8 times higher than that of most gaming mice. Usually, due to the reviews, we alternate the use of wireless mice with wired ones. We assure you that the transition to those with Corsair Paracord cable is painless.

The Corsair AXON Hyper-Processing proprietary technology allows the achievement of the 8,000 Hz polling rate (the same reached by the wired version of the wired SABER PRO ). But be careful: the 8,000 Hz mode can only be activated by the iCUE software and only if you have sufficiently performing hardware. Thanks to the Corsair MARKSMAN proprietary sensor, 26,000 DPI of sensitivity can be reached, an exaggeratedly high value that you will hardly find yourself exploiting. What matters is that the sensitivity can be increased by 1 DPI at a time, allowing, obviously again via iCUE, to see your reference values ​​(even for the Sniper button).

The weight balance of the mouse is also linked to another feature of the M65 ULTRA. Among the many integrated hardware improvements, there is also the so-called Sensor Fusion Control, which integrates a 6-axis accelerometer and gyroscope. The two sensors have a dual purpose: the first is to improve the tracking of the repositioning of the mouse in case you lift it from the surface; the second is to allow you to match the functions of the mouse to the inclinations. Also, from iCUE, it is possible to calibrate inclination of 20, 30, or more degrees towards one of the 4 directions (left, right, front, back) and match these inclinations to specific functions. For example, you could make tilting the mouse 20 degrees to make the system respond as if the user were pressing the V key on the keyboard. You can even match whole text strings, maybe a specific message to send in the game chat.

A feature that is particularly difficult to find in other mice adds to the already excellent hardware equipment available to this M65 RGB ULTRA. When we said that it is a real concentrate of technology, we were not joking at all. An obligatory mention also to LED lighting. Since, in this case, Corsair did not have to spare itself to keep the weight within particularly low thresholds, many more LEDs have been integrated, which contributes to making the mouse even more aggressive and iconic. 

Software

Without CORSAIR iCUE software, you do not have access to most of the top features of the mouse in question. We still find it a bit immature and complicated. Still, if nothing else, connecting M65 ULTRA and opening iCUE, you are greeted by a series of tutorials that explain step by step how to set, for example, the functions related to the inclination, how to assign new keys, and how to manage the lighting. The process to calibrate the mouse on the surface of use is also very useful, an essential step to use M65 ULTRA to the best of its possibilities. 

Conclusion!

Corsair M65 RGB ULTRA is one of those mice that, at first glance, might seem almost niche. The truth is, it’s effortless to fall in love with it. Under the fine aluminum body hides the best of Corsair’s proprietary hardware, which allows access to some particularly original features and, in some cases, really comfortable.

The SNIPER button will delight shooter lovers, as well as the 26,000 DPI sensor that allows sensitivity shots of 1 DPI at a time. However, note that not everyone needs so many options, programmable keys, and such high performance. The price is not affordable for all budgets, especially if you want to opt for the wireless model. But know that the wired gets along great.

Steelseries Aerox 3 vs Aerox 3 Wireless: Light Weight Mouse

Steelseries Aerox 3 and Aerox 3 Wireless are two almost perfect mice that combine suitable sensors with the high build quality. However, they have a notable problem that can be crucial.

 

Pros and Cons

Steelseries Aerox 3 and Aerox 3 Wireless are identical in both exterior and use. We have a lot to write about Aerox 3 and the features that make them stand out in the market. However, both fall on the finish line due to a simple detail that we usually take for granted: the feet are too thin, which leads to the chassis rubbing in soft mouse pads if we are not very light with the hand. With better feet, Aerox 3 would have been a given recommendation in Mouse Guide.

Design

Both variants Aerox 3, are identical in appearance, down to millimetres in dimensions. For that reason, we will describe Aerox 3 and Aerox 3 Wireless together in the future, provided that there are no differences between them.

Aerox 3 has a stylish and symmetrical design with a tasteful accent in the logo on the left mouse button. In true super-light fashion, most of the top and bottom of the mouse is equipped with diamond-patterned holes to trim down the weight.

Aerox 3 is relatively neutral in its form and is suitable for more hands than, for example, the competitor Superlight from Logitech. There are no aggressive features in the case. It is neither high nor low, the click is not too hollow or too flat, and it is neither too long nor short. The sides are also almost straight except for the bottom curve. Steelseries markets the mouse for claw and fingertip grips, but our tests have no problems with palm grips. Thus, we see that the vast majority of hands can find a comfortable grip.

From a construction quality perspective, we have nothing to complain about. Aerox 3 is a robust mouse that is rattle-free and crack-free when we hug it. Despite a Bluetooth module in the rear half of the wireless variant, the weight is evenly distributed when we hold it in the middle with the index finger and thumb tips.

The mouse has an unusually grainy surface texture that is not comparable to other mice we have tested so far. Most matte mice usually have a fine-grained or smooth texture, but Aerox 3 has unusually coarse grains. This is not sandpaper or discomfort when used. We have no preference and do not mind the slightly coarser grains, and for those users who want a grippy mouse, Aerox 3 can be a good choice.

So far, it has been a top-class mouse, but unfortunately, it falls entirely on one detail. The feet are so thin and the surface so small that if we rest our hand on the mouse, it starts scratching on soft mousepads. The problem is challenging to fix on your own with aftermarket feet because the sensor has a compact lifting length. It leaves the option of sanding down the bottom of the mouse, something we should never even have to think about in the premium segment. The material is PTFE, but Steelseries does not claim that they are made of pure Teflon, unlike many competitors in the market.

If you are looking for a wireless mouse but went for the Logitech G Pro X Superlight due to the lack of LEDs, Aerox 3 may be a good option. In addition to a LED diffuser at the bottom, light also leaks through the chassis. We guess that the diffuser is made of the popular material polycarbonate and that the bottom has a cut-out to let the light through. In actual use, the light nicely reflects in our mouse pad via the light loops.

The cable is too stiff for our taste. It is still far better than a standard rubber hose cable, as in the Logitech Superlight. In both Superlights and Aerox 3 Wireless cases, the mice escape criticism as they are intended to be used wirelessly. Aerox 3 uses at least one USB-C port, making it easy to switch to an aftermarket cable, a feature that Superlight does not share.

According to the specifications, the battery life is up to 200 hours during constant use, emphasising “up to”. We have a hard time getting a charge to last 50 hours. Compared to the Logitech G Pro X Superlight, which we could use for several weeks without charging, we can make the Aerox 3 Wireless live for about four to five days with equivalent use. Fortunately, the mouse is fully charged in about 45 minutes.

Aerox 3 weighs 58 grams, and 68 Aerox 3 Wireless weighs 68 grams, 1 gram more than the official specifications.

Switches

It is always interesting and exciting to test mice that do not use the otherwise popular Omron switches. There is nothing wrong with Omron switches but a slight variation does not hurt. Aerox 3 uses TTC Golden Microswitches.

The switch’s weight feels noticeably heavier than the popular Chinese Omron D2FC-F switches, which abounds on today’s market. They are also more tactile, which emphasizes the importance but results in a crispier click. In terms of sound, they are much louder than Omron switches, while the sound is louder. In summary, the controls are of a high class and are an excellent alternative to Omron switches for the user who wants a more distinct tactile feel.

The scroll wheel sits low and has a tactile click, well-defined steps and is relatively loud. We prefer this type of scroll wheel compared to those higher up and have slightly spongier measures. In this case, we can compromise on the sound level.

The side buttons are also distinctly tactile, but they are narrow. The narrow design can make it difficult to feel the small space between the front and back side buttons. Despite this, we have not encountered any problems where we accidentally press the wrong side button. It is still good to know if you prefer side buttons with a larger and broader area.

We have always disliked having CPI control buttons on the top of the mouse. We do not see any scenarios where we often need to change CPI and therefore prefer to have these at the bottom of the mouse, where we never happen to access them by mistake. That said, the CPI slider is of unusually high quality. It is usually a forgotten detail, which results in a spongy click, but in Aerox 3, it is a highly tactile and qualitative click.

Today’s high-performance sensors are usually identical. Performance rarely differs in actual usage scenarios. What can distinguish high-performance sensors is often related to small posts on specification sheets. Sometimes there are manufacturer adaptations of market-leading sensors that are worth keeping an eye on. The impressive thing for us is if there are any deviations. In this segment, the focus is less on sensors. It would help if you instead chose mouse by mouse shape.

Sensor performance

Aerox 3 uses the SteelSeries TrueMove Core sensor, while Aerox 3 has TrueMove Air. Interestingly, they do not share the sensor. In terms of specification sheets, TrueMove Air is the better sensor. In actual use, today’s sensors are so good that we do not notice any difference.
We have nothing to complain about other than that the lifting length is slightly shorter than, for example, PixArt sensors, which may explain why the feet are so thin. In our opinion, a quick lifting length is not negative, provided that the feet that the mouse is equipped with do not need to be upgraded.

We use MouseTester 1.5 to collect sensor data. We then review the results for any deviations. We find no traces of the common culprits in today’s mice, which inferior sensors have difficulty with: namely, Angle snapping, jitter and other compensations.

CPI – counts per inch
Manufacturers always have self-specified tolerances to adhere to. This means that the stated CPI does not always correspond to what the consumer expects. There is a built-in calibration for CPI in Mouse tests where we give the mouse a specific length and get back a number. The returned number should correspond to the set CPI on the mouse.

Jitter test
Jitter means that the motion tracking is inconsistent. We test it by moving the mouse diagonally and slowly to see if a step is formed instead of a soft line.

Tracking speed
Some mice may have difficulty tracking fast movements correctly. We move the mouse quickly over a surface and note the speed curve on the result. The result should not be zero or have unexpected consequences.

Angle snapping
By drawing fast circles with the mouse, we can see if it catches up or falls back and begins to compensate by drawing straight lines.

Lifting length
Players with low mouse sensitivity may need to lift and reposition the mouse during active play. Therefore, it is essential that the mouse has a short lifting length and stops reading movements almost immediately. We use actual user scenarios when we test lift size because it is difficult to get exact numbers.

We must always consider the human factor in this type of test. MouseTester can provide data to go on if we feel that something is not quite right. However, they are not absolute. What counts in the end is how the sensor performs and how it is experienced during actual use.

Software

Aerox 3 uses the Steelseries Engine 3 software, which has expected features. These are macros, adjusted CPI and various LED functions. What shines with its absence is an adjustment of the lifting length.

Two features that we recommend to stay away from are Angle snapping and acceleration settings. The Angle snapping setting locks the pointer according to the grid and follows them instead of letting us point freely and precisely. The acceleration settings create lag. During specific movements, the lead slows down or increases in speed without corresponding to our actual mouse movement.

Steelseries Engine 3 is relatively resource-efficient and does not need to run after the settings are configured.

Conclusion!

The SteelSeries Aerox 3 and the Aerox 3 Wireless features a different sensor than the wireless version. The Wireless has a considerably greater CPI range and a shorter lift-off distance, which results in fewer unwanted movements while moving the mouse. Despite having an internal battery, it is only slightly heavier than the cable version. Its wireless connection and multi-device pairing capabilities make it more suitable for usage in the office and on the go. The Wired features less click latency and higher build quality.

Trust BAYO Ergo Wireless Vertical Mouse With RGB Light

The Trust brand, identified with gaming equipment, decided to try its hand at the ergonomic mouse market, and this is how the Trust Bay model was created. It has RGB lighting. So let’s check what the company has prepared for us because it has prepared quite a lot of good things on paper.

PROSCONS
Comfortable to useNot suitable for left-handed
Neat and resistant designThe battery cannot be replaced
RGB light on the thumb rest
Good button response

The Trust has recently undergone a small image change because the usually black and red packaging, of course, heralding gaming equipment, has now been replaced by white and orange.

However, apart from the visual issue, a simple cardboard box with a front render, corresponding to the size of the product itself, has a lot of goodness in it. A lot, because in addition to a mouse and papers wrapped in foil, we get a tiny 2.4 GHz USB receiver and a more than 80 centimeters long USB-A to USB-C cable. Unfortunately, it is only used for charging because Trust Bayo does not support wired mode.

  • Unknown optical sensor 
  • Sensitivity on 5 levels: 800, 1200, 1600, 2000, 2400 DPI

Design

The Bayo Trust doesn’t discover America, to be honest. The manufacturer focused on the traditional shape of this type of mice, shortening the casing a bit so that my larger hand does not fit perfectly on it because the fingertips “go beyond the main buttons. However, this is not a product defect, and my private problem is that smaller hands (especially feminine) will find themselves on the Trust Bayo body without any problem.

Speaking of the shape, the Trust opted for a five-element housing, combining individual parts in such a terrible way that the gaps between the plastics created will be dreamed up long after nights for me. Especially that the plastic used, although quite pleasant to the touch, is not of the highest quality and gets dirty quickly, which is not a problem in the case of the gray material that builds the buttons. There, the material makes a much better impression, and together with a modest insert on the base, it also improves the overall visual aspect of the Bayo model.

However, it is difficult to call this mouse a work of art, but you cannot be tempted to say that it is badly designed. The flaws in its design are economical, and all because Trust Bayo combines wireless mode, an unusual housing format, full mouse capabilities, a modern USB-C connector, and a built-in battery. In other words, keeping the price below $40, the manufacturer had to save and fell on the materials used, the production process, and the optical sensor of unknown origin.

It is a pity that at the same time, Trust added a simple RGB backlight to the model, straining the budget on the mouse and functionally fulfilling only the role of a warning about the low battery. This backlight may not look bad, but it stings the eyes a bit because it is not only there but also significantly complicates the base of the mouse. It includes a sensor and a simple on/off switch with an additional mode that turns on the backlight and the button itself to change the backlight mode.

Simple sliders complement the whole with (interestingly) rounded edges and a gap for a USB receiver. However, do not try to pull it out with your fingers; there is no need – just hit the mouse lightly on your hand in the air, and the receiver will “fly-out” by itself.

Performance

While unusual, the Trust Bayo features a traditional set of buttons (two main, two sides, roller), completed by around a simple button on the spine to change the sensitivity. These buttons work. on average, but there is nothing to be bothered about because they will be perfect for office use. Especially since their arrangement for smaller hands will not be any problem during work. 

Sensor

The manufacturer does not mention something officially and broadly in the presentation of the product, it is a disadvantage. In Trust Bayo, this something is an unknown optical sensor, which due to the lack of software, is doomed to operate at the levels of 800, 1200, 1600, 2000, and 2400 DPI. We change these levels using a dedicated button on the back, and as far as precision is concerned, it’s wrong. So bad that even the software was unable to make the appropriate measurements because of the signal inconsistency.

Trust Bayo is tormented by a whole inventory of known errors in the operation of sensors in mice, ranging from increased prediction, interpolation, and high-frequency jittering at the level of 800 DPI, as well as negative and positive acceleration. In general, therefore, playing games with Bayo that require precision is a chore, and working on tasks requiring precision should not be a special problem in office applications.

Conclusion!

A wireless vertical mouse for under $40 should immediately light a red lamp in our heads. However, this does not mean that Trust Bayo is a completely useless model that will not find a niche for itself. This mouse is designed to work for those who suffer from wrist pains when using standard “flat” models. It may not be the best made, its materials could have been better, and the sensor could be more precise, but by choosing this model, you get wireless equipment with a built-in battery, and if you are looking for these two features at this price, Bayo will be a good choice.
