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a small image change because the usually black and red packaging, of course, heralding gaming equipment, has now been replaced by white and orange.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

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.
