Send me 180 dollars and buy a 20 dollar mouse instead.
14 March 2013
Summary: I bought this mouse on sale, I want to say it was around 40 dollars, but this was several years ago. I was awfully excited to get such a "great deal" on the mouse, so when it arrived I hooked it up right away planning to be much better at FPS games. It comes with cheap plastic feet that come out of the mouse... apparently in case you want to replace them? I've never had to replace a mouse because the feet wore off.
Summary: This WAS a good mouse, solid build and very precise. However, after 5 months of use it started to show some erratic clicking and problems while recharging. I can use it right now but everytime I need to recharge it, the headache starts. After plugging it to the magnetic cord it will start charging but once I take it out for wireless use it is not recognized by windows anymore.
Pros: - good for those with bigger hands - great for when it works - magnetic power connector makes charging the mouse easy
Cons: - mouse wheel broke in less than 9 months, now mouse will scroll one more "click" even though you have stopped scrolling, about 5 to 10 seconds after your last scroll - feels slightly cheap on the build quality
Summary: I'll keep this short.I purchased in July, Awesome mouse overall with a few drawbacks. Wide; mouse can cause smaller hands to cramp up with extended use. Wheel; the clickity clickity when you roll the wheel is messed up, sometimes its fine others its smooth rolling then catch's, very weird. (update October 2011) I'm replacing this mouse with a Logitech G400. I'm sick of paying 50+ bucks for mice that dont work right for more than 6 months at a time.
Summary: I have had this mouse for two years now. Pros: The charge lasts quite a long time. The overall feel of the mouse in my hand is pretty good; it fit's well to my palm and better than your average mouse. The thumb buttons are great and well placed. Sensitivity is great...sometimes. Cons: There are many. First, the mouse has stopped charging and is now effectively dead. During the first week or so that I had this mouse I got a flashing amber light and noticed a burning odor.
Uncomfortable, Awkward charging system, Bad software

Summary: I bought this mouse hoping for a great gaming mouse and have heard good things about the Sidewinder products. This mouse is terrible for a number of reasons: Ergonomics: The wireless connector is enormous. It's larger than a hockey puck which wouldn't be that big of a problem but it must be close enough to your mousepad that you can unravel the charging cord.
Summary: It was a good mouse at first, it promised all that was on the packaging and what I read in the reviews. After about six months the mouse refuses to charge. Now i'm stuck with a fairly pricey paperweight. The mouse itself is in excellent condition, so the fault must lay within the mouse itself.
Summary: This thing is a boring black heavy ass hell clump of BLAH just got it returning it. After reading review after review I got this thing. Funny thing is I have a no named wireless mouse I got from Target years ago much better way lighter and no real difference in tracking. I think Dpi is way over talked about. Once you find the right setting big deal if It can change. I think the Mamba looks cool as hell and dammit I want something fun..
Summary: After hearing reviews of how this mouse was great for big hands and gamers I bought it. I have used it about six months and here is what I have found. First, no one has yet created a proper mouse for large hands-- and the x8 is no different. There seems to be a mistaken idea that large pawed users need a thicker mouse. No! Our palms are longer-- therefore, what we need is a LONGER mouse. This clunky x8 is not ergonomic.
Summary: The X8 was my first wireless mouse but probably my 4th or 5th "performance-type" mouse. I tried to use it for a few months but ultimately gave up and switched to a Logitech G500 wired mouse. I am much happier. My biggest complaints are as follows in order of importance: - Mouse would miss clicks maybe one in fifty times. Really annoying on web pages, for example, where I wouldn't notice the missed click right away thinking it was slow web-site response.
