Excerpt: I am using the sidewinder as i write this review and what can i say, For a start its not for everyone, its one of those types of product you love or hate. I personally love this mouse becuase aswell as all its amazing features, its big and fits in my big hand! To start off this review lets talk about the battery life, To box states that this mouse with hold a charge for 30hours of use, and it only takes 15mins to charge!
Summary: I moved to this mouse from the Logitech G7 (also wireless). One thing that really puts this mouse above the Logitech equivalent is the battery life. The G7s custom Lithium battery lasted 5-7hours before needing to be recharged. Yes you got a second one, but you had to stop, get the charged replacement, take out the flat one, and pop in the fresh one.. too long if you're mid game. The X8 uses a single rechargeable AA battery.
Summary: All-in-all, its a great mouse and I think I'll be sticking with it for quite some time.
Pros: Absoloutly everything! Shape/size aren't an issue - and I don't have "big hands" :P - Love the play and charge kit as well as the easy-to-change DPI settings - Fast for gaming, Medium for browsing and slow...For if I'm drunk I suppose :P
Cons: So far, so good - haven't found anything wrong with it.
Summary: Meine letzte Maus (Microsoft Explorer 2.0) hat knappe 8 Jahre gute Arbeit geleistet und wurde nun vor knapp 1 Jahr von der x8 abgelöst. Nach diesem 1 Jahr Erfahrung bin ich mir schon fast sicher das auch diese Maus das Talent besitzt wieder 8 Jahre durch zu halten. Die Qualität ist wirklich überzeugend, sie überzeugt mich einfach in jedem Aufgabenbereich ob Spiele, Photoshop oder normale Office-Anwendungen!
