"Looks good, but not worth it"

rlkp, CNET

  • Pros: blue-tracking is really accurate, there are 3 speeds which is useful or on the fly switching DPI speeds, nice placement of macro and forward/backward buttons, has a wired/wirelss mode where you can recharge solely by using the "puck" that comes with it.
  • Cons: only 1 thing..... the recharging contacts for most people become defective within the first month or two. that means you will now have to manually change the batteries yourself so its a bit of pain...

"Doesn't Live up to the Hype"

  • Pros: Lithium battery and charger, additional feet. Programmablilit when it works.
  • Cons: Mouse Wheel, terrible, forefinger slides off of wheel, wheel get stuck, anything but smooth rotation. Customization doesn't stay, you have to keep re-initiating it. Programmable side buttons rarely work.

  • 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.
