Microsoft SideWinder X5 Mouse Review

Futurelooks
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

  • Excerpt: Back in the day, shopping for gaming peripherals meant sifting through a ton of Microsoft's SideWinder products to find what you needed.

  • 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

  • Summary: En resumen, el X5 es una gran opción para los gamers, mucho más barato que su versión “completa pero innecesaria” y con gran cantidad de funciones, que van desde giros de 180° hasta configuración de macros en los juegos, con límite de tiempo entre clicks y todo.
  • Pros: Mas barato, sin detalles innecesarios
  • Cons: Sigue siendo un poco grande

Microsoft Sidewinder X5 Gaming Mouse

5 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Microsoft Sidewinder X5 -pelihiiri on halvempi malli hulppeasti varustellusta Sidewinder Mousesta . Muotoilu ja toiminnallisuus ovat samat, X5:stä vain puuttuu vaihdettavat tassut ja painon säätämisen mahdollistava painokelkka irtopainoineen.
  • Pros: peukalonappien sijoittelu päällekkäin, tarkka, lennosta vaihdettava herkkyys
  • Cons: muotoilu ei sopine kaikille, kalliimman mallin rullan tuntu poissa
