Summary: I thought the mouse was nice at first. It has a great design, and seemed to be working fine. However, after two days of use, It started functioning erratically and clicking randomly. It would not register half of my clicks, and began moving as if it wasn't controlled by me. This would happen on and off throughout daily use. After reading online, I saw this was a common problem with this mouse. Do not buy it and expect it to work well for long.
Summary: This mouse had great potential, but it has one huge flaw: The magnetic connection of the cord to the mouse when you need to recharge it. It just doesn't connect properly or reliably. I have to press it down hard to make a connection, or I have to wiggle it to make a connection. Or it just doesn't matter what I do, it won't charge the darn mouse. This mouse would be PERFECT if it was battery operated or even if it had a cord...
Summary: I actually never wrote a review before, but i have to make one since i am so frustrated with this mouse. This mouse is so unreliable. Less than a year after i bought it, the charger didnt work and the battery becomes faulty, so now i have to buy external charger and a new rechargeable battery which cost $20. I google about it and found lot of other people facing the same problem as me and microsoft actually did nothing.
Summary: Luckily I bought this from a local store and return it the next day. I can't believe how bad the left click mouse was. I have an average man size palm and I had to reach to click the left click button and it was pretty firm too. The mouse size was about 1.5" longer than a regular explorer mouse with no curve. I will not recommend this mouse to anyone. Especially you plan on buying this for game playing like I did.
Summary: I like the mouse. I bought a used one thinking surely they would not ship defective products. It takes 18 clicks of the mouse wheel up or down for page scroll, and yes i tried the settings and updates. Thanks Warehouse Deals, Inc. now the good part, Amazon says 4 weeks maybe less for a refund? If they actually did care about customer service it would be two days at the most.
Summary: Ok, got my X8 and I'm testing it right next to my G9 on a SteelSeries SX Mouse Pad. What I have noticed: X8 is louder the the G9 when you slide it, I have tried all 3 sets of pads. I can't tell any difference between the 3 sets of feet. And I didn't see any description telling me how they are different. It is easy to accidentally push the two thumb buttons, which is annoying when web surfing because they are back and forward buttons.
Summary: Nachdem ich immer Logitech Mäuse gekauft habe und die meistens immer 5 Jahre hielten, dachte ich mir, ich kaufe mal eine andere Marke. Nach langem hin und her fiel die Entscheidung auf die SideWinderX8. Also schnell bestellt. Versand durch Amazon wie gewohnt schnell. Als ich die Packung aufgemacht habe und die Maus angeschlossen habe war schon die erste Entäuschung zu sehen. Weder das Blaue leuchten noch die Batterieanzeige sehen aus wie auf dem Bild.
