Review: Microsoft SideWinder X8 Gaming Mouse

10 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Microsoft’s SideWinder gaming gear has been around for close to two years now and line has expanded from a single mouse to a few different products. We have looked at a lot of it in the past and while it all always looks impressive on paper, I generally have not been won over by the devices.

  • Conclusion: The Sidewinder X8 is exactly what it says in the tin, a high-end wireless gaming mouse. If you're looking for a new gaming mouse, and think having a wireless would be nice, then there aren't all that many good choices to pick from. There aren't any flaws in X8 that I could point out.
  • Pros: The clever charging cable, Overall quality feel, Spare glide feet
  • Cons: -

  • Conclusion: Of course though I’m not a professional gamer, but for me it works very well for all of the games I played, it tracks on every surface style, and it works great for everyday uses. Being wireless it frees you from cords, it’s quite possibly the best wireless mouse on the market today.
  • Pros: Works well on all surfaces, Easy to use, Nice long charging cord, Play while charging, Wireless that works well for gaming, Adjustable DPI, Interchangeable feet, Nicely made
  • Cons: Large mouse, Only right handed, DPI settings are not fully adjustable in smaller increments, No adjustable weights

22 February 2010
  • Excerpt: A wireless mouse that can actually deliver the gaming goods? Before I started looking at gaming mice, I had a small, cheap and perfectly fine wireless mouse. It was fine for work, but had a few problems when playing fast games, as it had a tendency to jump a little.
  • Pros: Good performance. Great charging system.
  • Cons: Strange shape.
