Benchmark Reviews
20 July 2009
  • Conclusion: The packing of the Microsoft Sidewinder X5 goes beyond the traditional or regular packaging, certainly making it stand. It's less of an eye-popping display and more of a novel design for cardboard.
  • Pros: On the fly dpi switching with settings up to 2000dpi., Laser tracking sensor, Large ergonomic design, 5 customizable buttons including two side buttons, Crisp feeling mouse buttons.
  • Cons: Annoying LEDs on the back of the mouse, Shortcut key that cannot be customized., Dpi setting buttons uncomfortable to reach

Microsoft SideWinder X5 Mouse Review

14 November 2008
  • Summary: Well this ended on a much more upbeat note then the last Microsoft peripheral review I wrote. The SideWinder X5 is mostly able to repent the sins of its father. The mouse is actually comfortable to use, and it doesn't feel at all chintzy.
  • Pros: Smooth accurate movement, Fully customizable feel and functionality, Adjustable DPI that’s quick to access, Comfortable to use
  • Cons: Needs features of original SideWinder, Software still shares problems with old SideWinder

  • Summary: Microsoft's Sidewinder X5 might not be the most advanced or feature-filled gaming mouse on the market, but its combination of precision, customisable buttons and comfortable design makes it a worthy choice nonetheless.
  • Pros: 2000 DPI sensor is precise, on-the-fly DPI adjustment, lots of programmable controls
  • Cons: Lacks some of the bells and whistles of other models, sensitivity not as high as some competing units

Microsoft Sidewinder X5

21 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Sidewinder X5 dzięki dosyć futurystycznemu kształtowi oraz zastosowanym materiałom raczej sprawia wrażenie zabawki niż profesjonalnej myszy dla gracza. Zbudowana jest ze średniej jakości plastyku, co w połączeniu z brakiem miękkich antypoślizgowych materiałów wykończeniowych nie sprawia przyjemnego...
  • Pros: Ciekawa stylistyka, Dodatkowe przyciski, Makra
  • Cons: Nietypowy kształt, Słabe wykończenie
