set out at the beginning of this article to replace my 14 month old gaming mouse. It seemed to me a bit of a risk to go with Microsoft over someone like Logitech or Razor, who arguably have more experience when it comes to gaming mice. In fact he mouse I was replacing was from one of the above mentioned companies (I'm not going to say who). at the end of the day the I Sidewinder mouse really comes across as a solid mouse with an excellent feature set. Couple that with Microsoft support and you have a product that you can rely on for years to come. The ability to customize so much about the mouse means that it's practically guaranteed to work for you. Whether you like a feather light mouse or one that takes a bit of effort to move you're covered. If you want to be able to chain in game commands together with a single button your set. If you're basically looking for a quality gaming mouse, look no further the SideWinder is it.
