What’s goin on guys this is Jerry Neutron and what you are looking at is EVGA’s first attempt to bring a gaming mouse to the market. This is the Torq X10.
After watching a couple reviews on the mouse I really liked what I saw so I decided to pick it up for myself.
Now in the box you get the mouse itself, a set of weights ranging from 2 to 6 grams, a height adjustment knob, a set of replacement feet and some documentation.
And feature-wise, this is a 9-button mouse with on-board DPI adjustability. This is an ambidextrous mouse. It’s got side buttons on both ends so it’s perfect for left or right-handed gamers. It has an Avago 9800 laser sensor which some of the more hardcore gamers may not be crazy about but for most it’s going to be a non-issue. High quality Omron switches with a 20 million click lifespan have also been added. It’s got 512KB of memory so you can store multiple profiles, customizable RGB LEDs and a six-foot braided cable.
Now one thing that attracted me to this mouse was the amount of customizable options. You can adjust the weight of the mouse just by pulling off the top cover and dropping in the weights. You can adjust the height of the mouse which will allow you to fine-tune your grip whether you’re claw grip or palm grip and within the downloadable software there are several other options.
You can adjust things like the button assignment, whether you’re using the mouse as left or right-handed. You can change the color of the LEDs, as you can see there are several colors to choose from and now I really don’t have to worry about LED color when I pick up a mechanical keyboard which is nice. You’ve got DPI adjustments which I’m still trying to fine-tune at the moment. There’s also macro and profile management options.
Now gaming with the mouse it felt great. There were no noticeable acceleration issues. The mouse was responsive and it went where I wanted it to go. I still have to play around with the settings to get it perfect but it’s good to know the sensor is not a limiting factor with this mouse.
But with that said, there are a couple things that I do not like about this mouse. The first thing is that I keep accidently pressing the side buttons with my ring finger. Because of this, I currently do not have those buttons assigned to anything. And the second is the top cover. I’m so afraid of breaking the thing when I want to change weights that I’d rather not deal with it at all.
But those two things aside, this is a pretty awesome mouse and should satisfy those without a bias towards laser sensors just fine. So that’s about it guys. Don’t forget to like, comment, subscribe and all that good stuff and until next time…see ya!
