Microsoft Sidewinder X8 BlueTrack Gaming Mouse Review

Futurelooks
7 April 2009
  • Summary: Microsoft has proven that does take the feedback it gets and uses it. The Microsoft Sidewinder X8 Bluetrack Gaming mouse is proof of that. They've managed to take all the good and bad of the original Sidewinder and the follow up X5 and combine it into this latest product.
  • Pros: Very much improved over previous products, Wireless convenience without the wireless lag, Great tactile response from all buttons, A joy to use in FPS shooters and very fast and accurate
  • Cons: There is no loitering on this mouse if you want to avoid discomfort (RTS, MMORPG and heavy web surfers can move along).

Microsoft Sidewinder X8 Wireless Gaming mouse Review (PC)

Yet Another Review Site
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.

  • Conclusion: Trudno jest zaprojektować dobrej jakości mysz bezprzewodową, które już z założenia są pomijane przez wymagających graczy preferujących stabilniejsze i szybsze kablowe połączenie z komputerem.
  • Pros: Minimalny efekt akceleracji wstecznej, Bezprzewodowy interfejs, Praktyczna ładowarka, Ciekawa stylistyka
  • Cons: Plastykowe ślizgacze, Kształt, do którego trzeba się przyzwyczaić

Test: Microsoft Sidewinder X8

Gamereactor
18 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Foruten den nye sporingsteknologien er X8 også på andre måter fullspekket med teknologi. En egen LCD-skjerm er ikke hverdagskost selv på avanserte gamingmus, ei heller hele syv macroknapper. I tillegg er musen trådløs, noe gamere er uenige om verdien av.
