Worth Considering if the Price is Right

Jacob Stirrat "Jake", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as my first gaming mouse, primarily because Amazon were offering it at £40 (RRP was about £80 at the time) and as such, it seemed to represent good value. 18 months on, I'd have to concur that it is pretty solid performer overall, though I do have an issue with the scroll wheel - something appears to have worn away inside, hence the three star review: For a premium item with a premium price tag to match, I'd have thought it would be reasonable to expect...

Mouse wheel-- not good

Mr. B. W. Purnell "Bazz", Amazon
29 September 2009
  • Summary: I have always used Logitech in the past but after reading about the Sidewinder X8 thought I would make a change. The ability to switch dpi on the fly is good as is placement of the side buttons, but the wheel is NOT, it is slippery with not much grip for your finger & sometimes jams or locks when your finger just slips on the surface. It really needs a rubberised non slip surface.

Acceptabel

  • Summary: + tung stor går att köra som både trådlös och med sladd lång batteritid när man kör trådlöst skönt scrollhjul - mitt scrollhjul gick sönder efter 5 månader alla 3 uppsättningar fötter slets upp på 3 månader med en Steelseries 4D-matta Får ett lågt betyg pga scrollen, antar att jag fick ett måndagsexemplar men det ska ändå hålla mer än 5 månader. Hade inte scrollen lagt av så hade musen fått 8/10.

  • Summary: also ich hab die sidewinder x8 nun schon seid ungefähr nem halben jahr und muss sagen von der schnelligkeit dieser maus bin ich immernoch begeistert. ich benutze diese maus eig. nur zum zocken von ego - shootern wie cod 6, battlefield bad comapany 2 usw. aber auch für rpg's wie gothic 4. Die Maus kann bis zu 4000 dpi, mir persönlich zum zocken etwas zu schnel da ich eher snipe und das ziel langsamer bewegen muss.
