The x8 is decent, and like most of the posts here say, it is quite large. Even though after a couple of months and it still feels huge to me, i've gotten used to it (and the auto dpi changing buttons <3) and I can do really good in bfbc2 on it.
my only gripes:
- buttons are not ALL customizable... some buttons like the 3 dpi buttons can't be remapped to something else if in case you only needed 2 of them for DPI, also the big silver button on the top of the mouse opens specifically the games folder in windows and for us that use steam, it's useless... and cant be remapped (AFAIK, if someone has, TELL ME!)
- scroll wheel when i first got it was kinda stiff and so was the pressing down (for middle click)... it has since gotten easier for me to use, i'm not sure if i've adapted or if the scroll wheel loosened up from use (crazy bfbc2 weapon scrolling from shotgun to pistol
). And the threads on the wheel, IMO, offer too little resistance and it's hard to scroll.
- wireless connection is over 2.4GHz... and so is wifi... using it by my laptop while downloading at 100 mbps on a wireless N connection at 2.4 GHz makes for choppy movements.
- dpi sensitivity has preset levels to choose from... cant make custom ones... so yeah a little annoying especially when you want something right between two preset sensitivities.
