Summary: I was particularly fond of the Logitech MX518 gaming mouse, but after going through three of them in about 18-24 months of use, I thought it might be best to say goodbye to Logitech and see if I could find a more durable product. I didn't have a lot of money, so the Sidewinder X5 seemed like a cheap alternative to the MX518, with basically all the same features. But the X5 was not an adequate replacement.
Summary: was a loyal mouse for two years then just crap the bed. i can use the left mouse button, or at least its seriously delayed. the right button has mind of its own and will activate it self with out being pushed. playing sniper games is enoying when you keep seeing your scope flash on your screen.
Summary: The thing works well believe it or not. Its sturdy but not heavy. However if it weren't for the poor decision to go with a soft rubber wheel, it would be a much better product. The wheel disintegrates after about a year of use. Of course the other parts of the mouse are still usable, but you WILL miss using the wheel. Heed this warning, Buy something else.
Summary: The mouse is ok but it have some problems Like the auto dpi switch in the middle of a game for 1 - 2 sec's Then its goes back to the normal speed , You need To exit the game and then Run it again , then the problem will Go And it needs a weight changing Feature because the mouse ain't THAT heavy And It's Get dirty A little Bit .
Summary: This mouse would be best for a larger sized handed person. I wear size medium sized gloves and this mouse was still a little too big for my hand to get used to. I'm a finger tip grip mouse user, apposed to the claw grip and the palm grip. I used it for about 17 days and each day I disliked it more and more. The mouse wheel is pushed forwards, where I had to cuff the entire butt of mouse with the palm of my hand to reach it.
Summary: I ignored the reviews indicating that it was too big. I thought they were referring to a childs hands. I'm a grown man and its still too big not to mention uncomfortable. I'm unable to program it for the one game I play (TORCHLIGHT)also. You'd think that with something sooo big they'd include far more button than just 4 total. No wonder it was on sale!
Summary: I've owned this mouse along with the Sidewinder X6 Keyboard for about a year. The mouse was easy to use, had a good UI to set the buttons, and was comfortable. The only problem I ran into is it totally died and became unresponsive and not recognized by my PC just after a year of use. My keyboard is still going strong. I really liked this mouse for everything it did, just wish it could hold up for longer.
