Microsoft SideWinder Mouse

PC Magazine
5 April 2008
  • Conclusion: Microsoft's solo effort is a hit, but it might be too much mouse for small hands. Still, its features are through the roof and can do the trick for gamers.
  • Pros: On-the-fly dpi switching. Good customization options. Comfy scroll wheel. Macro capabilities. First ever LCD.
  • Cons: May be too large for some users. Not ambidextrous. Number of programmable buttons limiting.

Microsoft Sidewinder USB Gaming Mouse Review

Hi-Tech Reviews
6 January 2008
  • Summary: A mouse is not something I usually get very stoked about, but after using the Microsoft Sidewinder Gaming Mouse that has changed. To start off I love the size of the mouse as it slightly larger than a normal mouse and for a guy with large hands like mine it feels prefect in hand.

Review: Microsoft SideWinder Gaming Mouse

15 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Microsoft has been overdue in putting out a really high tech gaming mouse. They already have mice like the Habu and Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 and the Recluse keyboard, but once Logitech released the G9 we all knew that a competitor was on the way.

  • Conclusion: Facts are now laid out and it is time for judgement. I have to say that for me the SideWinder was a mixed package. It felt perfect on some areas but let me down on others. I believe that in my case, most of the problems were caused by the dimensions and the shape of the mouse.
  • Pros: Tuneable weights, LCD Screen, Easy to use software, Replacement feet
  • Cons: Button placement, "Only" five configurable buttons
