Microsoft SideWinder X5

  • Excerpt: Back in the day, shopping for gaming peripherals meant sifting through a ton of Microsoft's SideWinder products to find what you needed. Everything from SideWinder controllers, to joysticks, to force-feedback steering wheels lined hardware stores; to say that they dominated the market would be spot on. Eventually the entire range started phasing out and the series was all but forgotten.

  • Excerpt: Sporting an ever-so-slightly trimmed-down shape compared to the original Sidewinder gaming mouse, along with a stripped down featureset, the Sidewinder X5 delivers great performance at a very reasonable price. Like the original Sidewinder, the design works great for gamers who use either a claw or a standard grip (or who like to change between them), but it’s not particularly comfortable for people with small- to medium-size hands.
  • Pros: Sensor is super-accurate. Top-and-bottom thumb buttons kick ass. Love the three button sensitivity adjustment.
  • Cons: Still too honkin’ big. No reason to install the software, unless you want to make sensitivity adjustments. Sidewinder button is useless.

Simple but effective gaming mouse.

  • 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

  • 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 wrażenia, gdy trzymamy ją w dłoni. Niestety brakuje finezji wykończenia Logitecha lub kosmicznego wyglądu pierwszego Sidewindera z aluminiowymi przyciskami w kształcie bolców.
  • 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. Sigue siendo un poco grande para aquellos con manos pequeñas, pero sin duda mucho más cómodo para gente con manos razonablemente normales, bajo ningún estandarte…pero cada uno sabrá.
  • Pros: Mas barato, sin detalles innecesarios
  • Cons: Sigue siendo un poco grande
