Other Thoughts: Issues with the sensor involve dust getting on the lens of the laser. I started to notice this issue with the infection version of this mouse's product line and i was able to fix it by blowing on the laser. No matter how clean i kept the area, the problem occurred more and more over time (used the mouse for over a year) and ended up replacing due to the annoyance of it.
Do keep in mind that this line of mice are fantastic except with that ONE design flaw, which i believe is how deep the laser is set into the frame where it gives dust the ability to collect causing either the x or y axis to cut off (in my case it was almost 99% the x axis) which caused many crashed reavers and jets.
This review is from: EVGA TORQ X10 901-X1-1103-KR Wired Laser Gaming Mouse
Pros: This is my second posting after EVGA contacted me to clarify some information like they so willing do (fantastic customer support for every product), and I figured out a lot of the software conflicts I was having involving utilization of their software.
The mouse has EVERY button re-bindable, even the DPI select below the mouse wheel and the second set of MB 4 and 5 (which ever one is not being utilized based on which hand is being used) (the only one not rebindable is the button on the bottom of the mouse that selects profiles) that can be keybound to an assortment of keybinds, where i prefer to just select keyboard settings.
Everything about it screams high quality, I don't understand why this mouse is as cheap as it is, since I would have paid $120 easy for it, and also to include the fact that all of EVGA's RND money is part of their production cost since its their first mouse on top of the quality components... How EVGA... How?
With respect to my previous mouse (Cyborg Infection), the precision of the laser is godly, I'm able to operate at higher DPI than usual with the sensitivity set to 5 since the precision is so much better.
Cons: In reality, I can't think of a single one thats not subjective involving getting use to this mouse over another mouse. Seemed uncomfortable at first (i switched from a Cyborg Infection which was much wider but not as long) but after a day or so of use i'm enjoying it immensely.
I havent found a way to change the LEDs that indicate which DPI level is set, but since i use red anyways since my whole build is EVGA/Corsair with red on black all over the place, i just have my set DPI and sensitivity on the level that has all 4 bars lit. The light control in the top right of t he software shows two different changeable LEDs which are the mouse wheel and EVGA logo on the palm but not the DPI indicator. In reality, if you're not using red, it still looks good with the red contrast since the MB 4 and 5 are also red.
Other Thoughts: Still no idea how EVGA could sell this mouse so cheap, it must be a marketing strategy to get people to use their other products and if i wasnt already sold on EVGA's fantastic quality control and customer service, this mouse would do it.
Beware: products are higher quality than advertised
Pros: Everything in the mouse screams quality, one thing that surprised me was the braiding on the cord upon initial inspection. The adjustable height is a great feature that in combination of its ambidextrous MB 4 and 5 gives this mouse almost 100% versatility for any hand configuration.
I won't repeat all the other details already listed on the site's page.
Cons: the software looks nice, but is more flashy than productive, it'll take some time to get use to for those who have used razor or cyborg mice. I dont see any way to utilize the 'lefty' MB 4 and 5 as different buttons since the software either has lefty or righty enabled, which disables the respective MB 4 and 5. This may be unique to my previous mouse, Cyborg Infection (RAT 7 limited edition), but the MB 4 and 5 are much more forward than I'm use to. The top part feels like I'm going to break it every time i remove to adjust weight which may not be a con at all since it indicates a proper assembly. If you DO NOT have fingernails (like me) good luck getting the top off to add/remove weight without any assistance, between the top and the EVGA LED there is a fillet centered that allows the user to remove it but requires more precision and force than just a stubby fingertip.
All complaints are extremely minor but specific details that may or may not pertain to any user.
Other Thoughts: These comments are all first impressions
The adjustable height, from what i can tell, is to differentiate the two different styles of claw grip and standard grip and all flavors in between them.
Every EVGA component I can get in my rig is EVGA (mobo, psu, gpus) except a case, because SLI 780 ti doesn't fit in a hydron... but I expect a high level of quality control and support from EVGA and they have delivered a product that I believe reflects the vision that EVGA bestows into their other products.
