EVGA TORQ X10 Mouse

As we look at the left side of the TORQ X10, we see at the left that the main top section is separated from the bottom, and there is even a steel pivot point visible in the lower plastic section. As we move right, we see more of that piano black finish, along with the large red buttons marked one and two.

At the back we find the plastic terminates in a widened arch. Above the plastic is the heel pad, which is also separate from the lower frame. Below the arch, we see the large Torx head screw, and this is how the top is adjusted.

Since we have an ambidextrous design, the red side buttons here are also labeled as one and two, but as we know via software, the painted on numbers are of little reference to their capabilities.

As we look at the front of the mouse, we can see the sides wrap around under the dimpled right and left click buttons. We can also see that the USB cabling comes out from the side rather than out of the middle as we would normally see in ambidextrous designs.

Behind the heavily segmented scroll wheel, we quickly run into two more buttons used as the DPI on-the-fly buttons by default. Just behind them are four bars that will denote the level of DPI in use when the TORQ X10 is powered.

Connected to the mouse is this six foot braided cable. The length is fine for most instances, but we also get a Velcro tie to tend to the wiring if you plan to travel with it. To keep the all black styling going, instead of gold plating for anti-oxidation reasons, EVGA used black nickel.

As we flip the TORQ X10 over on its back, we see two very large PTFE feet used to support the mouse in its near effortless travels across the desktop. We can also see the side buttons through the cut-away in the metal base plate, and there is the default profile selection button to the right of the sensor's eye.

The mouse ships with the top in its lowest position, totalling just slightly more than 31mm in height. If your hand desires a bit more curve to the top of the mouse for comfort, simply stick the Torx screwdriver into the screw in the heel of the mouse, and start turning it to the left.

After a couple of turns, the TORQ X10 is now in its fully raised and upright position. While 7mm doesn't seem like much on paper, when using the mouse, that 7mm can make all the difference to long term use and comfort.
