Microsoft has added a new mouse to its line of SideWinder gaming products.
The SideWinder X3 Mouse is an ambidextrous, eight-button gaming mouse featuring a 2,000 dpi laser-tracking engine with on-the-fly dpi switching between high, medium and low sensitivity, Microsoft said.
Like its siblings, the SideWinder X5 and the original SideWinder mouse, the SideWinder X3 has five programmable main buttons that are customizable to gamers' preferences and tested for extreme gaming, with the main button life rated to 10 million clicks. Additional features include IntelliPoint software to create and assign macros; a wide, detented scroll wheel for more precise click movement; and low-profile lateral side buttons and wide-glide feet for smooth handling and a balanced feel, according to Microsoft.
The SideWinder X3 mouse will be widely available in May for an estimated retail of $39.95. The mouse is available now for pre-sale on Amazon.com and will ship in May when it is released.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
