Microsoft SideWinder X8 Review

Digitaltrends
25 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Wireless mice are all well and good, but you’d never use one for gaming , right? Everybody knows wireless mice suffer from lag, skipping, and all sorts of other problems. Well, here’s a situation where common wisdom is wrong. Microsoft has managed to chop off this mouse’s tail while avoiding these and other problems.
  • Pros: Wireless; programmable; overall precision; ergonomically sound design
  • Cons: Slippery scroll wheel; adds to cable clutter despite being wireless

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. This being the case I was not all that shocked to learn that hardcore gaming mice tend to come with a great big braided lead.
  • Pros: Good performance. Great charging system.
  • Cons: Strange shape.

  • Conclusion: With its wired and wireless connectivity, souped-up BlueTrack sensor, and well-sculpted design (for right-handed people), the Microsoft SideWinder X8 Mouse fits comfortably among the gaming-mice elite. It's a worthy addition to any gamer's arsenal.

Microsoft SideWinder X8 Mouse review Review

CNET
21 July 2009
  • Summary: Microsoft's SideWinder X8 Mouse isn't the only mouse that can swap seamlessly between wired and wireless modes. But, with its BlueTrack sensor and on-the-fly macro-recording capability -- not to mention a competitive price -- we imagine plenty of PC gamers will want to get their hands on one
  • Pros: Hybrid wired/wireless design eliminates downtime between battery charges, BlueTrack sensor lets you use it on a wide variety of surfaces, Easy on-the-fly macro recording, 4,000dpi maximum
  • Cons: Scroll wheel needs a better grip, Signal drop-off in wireless mode at high sensitivity

TEST: Microsoft SideWinder X8 - Trådløs spillmus som fungerer

PC World
25 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Mange spillinteresserte er skeptiske til trådløse mus. Skikkelige spillmus er nesten uten unntak utstyrt med ledning. Påstanden har vært at den trådløse overføringen ikke er stabil nok til å få en skikkelig presis mus, og det å miste kontakten selv i en hundredel av et sekund kan være nok til å ødelegge i hektiske spill.
  • Pros: Trådløs. Presis og meget rask. Ekstra museføtter. Smart lader.
  • Cons: Skarp kant på høyre side.

  • 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. Microsoft Sidewinder X8 wydaje się jednak być dobrym wyborem dla wszystkich osób ceniących rozwiązania bez kabla i jednocześnie lubiących grać.
  • Pros: Minimalny efekt akceleracji wstecznej, Bezprzewodowy interfejs, Praktyczna ładowarka, Ciekawa stylistyka
  • Cons: Plastykowe ślizgacze, Kształt, do którego trzeba się przyzwyczaić
