Looking at the GIGABYTE M8000 Xtreme Gaming Mouse, I felt that if it could knock my Logitech G5 which has served me for the past few years off its perch, it could be a winner. I have confidence in GIGABYTE in many areas, but when I plugged the M8000X into my system I left the G5 still plugged in.
Today, though, the G5 has been unplugged and the M8000X sits in the top spot that is my mouse pad. While I don't consider myself a huge gamer, the M8000X from GIGABYTE does what I consider the most important feature to me well, and that is that it feels comfortable.
As a gaming mouse the M8000X is great; it carries with it all those features you want including a huge amount of buttons, big DPI numbers, on the fly DPI adjustment and a massive amount of macro support.
It has to be comfortable, though. When you combine the fact that you will probably also use the mouse a lot just around the desktop, it's important that you're able to grip it for hours on end. While it took me a few days getting used to the back and forward buttons over the G5, there are little things like this which will happen with any new mouse as it's surely different to what you're currently using.
At 60 bucks over at Newegg it comes in cheaper than other gaming mice like the Razor Lachesis, Microsoft SideWinder and Logitech G9, while managing to offer some more features including the highest DPI out of the batch.
If you've got a hand that enjoys that larger bulge that mice like the G5 offer and a lot of the gaming orientated mice from Microsoft, you'll find it very comfortable. And the extra touches like the rubber on the side are nice and let your hand really relax.
While you might feel a little worried that GIGABYTE are an option you should only consider for motherboards and video cards, I'm here today to tell you that when it comes to gaming mice they know what they're doing. They've been making peripherals for a while now and it's clear they're getting into the swing of things these days. Throw in the fact that they're more aggressive when it comes to pricing and this is a real winner of a product.
