Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0

Hardware Pacers
10 December 2006
  • Summary: The IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 is a fine product. The noticeable differences from its predecessors are its charcoal gray color, slight change in the mouse curvature (sleek design) and the increased responsiveness (9000 fps). The mouse does feel a little heavy and this may be a turn off for many who seek that minimum movement ultra precision feel that is so hard to achieve from gaming devices.
  • Pros: Sleek design, Cool appearance
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Conclusion: Microsoft made a good move in rebranding the Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 as a gaming mouse. I tried it out in Unreal Tournament 2004 and although I didn't find it quite as comfortable as my usual mouse -- a Logitech MX1000 Laser -- my accuracy was greatly improved. I don't know if I want to switch to using this mouse for my everyday work, but it's definitely got my vote for FPS gaming.

  • Summary: Microsoft's updated IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 brings a few gamer-friendly tweaks to the design of the venerable mouse. We don't expect that it will win over the hardcore gamer, but for everyone else, the IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 is a fine mouse with only a few minor issues.
  • Pros: Affordable, Precision Booster feature lets you customise sensitivity settings, Customisation software is easy to use, Wider base gives more wrist support
  • Cons: Thumb side buttons need more tactile response, You'll sacrifice a button for the Precision Booster

  • Pros: New 6000dpi Optical Sensor,, Outstanding IntelliPoint 4.0 Drivers,, Fast Scrolling Wheel,, 5 buttons,, High accuracy and quick response.
  • Cons: Weird Design,, Not as comfortable as the first IntelliMouse Explorer,, Previous & Next buttons are way too small and incorrectly positionned.

  • Excerpt: Att datorer i dagens samhälle får en allt viktigare roll är varken okänt eller svårt att förklara. Datorprogram säljer som aldrig förr och datorspel har blivit något som alla använder lite då och då. Spelutvecklarna syftar till att tillfredsställa alla gamers, stora som små, runda som kantiga.
