Microsoft SideWinder Mouse tested

ExtremeTech had some time to play with the new SiderWinder gaming mouse from Microsoft:
Microsoft yanks its SideWinder brand out of early retirement to reincarnate it as a gaming mouse to help bolster their line of gaming peripherals. Unlike the Habu, Microsoft didn't have Razer as their wingman to co-create the SideWinder—they're flying this mission solo.

The Batmobile-esque SideWinder's design was partly inspired from a couple of interesting sources: Master Chief from Halo and the Mazda Senku concept car. Its long, large shape has a bulky palm rest, curved rubber-like side grips, and a dark, black exterior with a thin, burgundy strip down the middle.
Check out the full review over here. The mouse costs about $79.95 and overall they seem to like it as it features a plethora of options.
