While we still do find 8200 DPI to be a bit on the extreme side of needed amounts of travel and tracking, we do know there has to be a few out here willing to wrangle with a mouse at that sort of sensitivity level. However, for us, the sweet spot is in the 4000 to 6000 DPI range for faster things like desktop use, surfing web pages, even in more open world games where exacting precision isn't life or death. For stunning accuracy, everyone knows that lowering the DPI will allow users to be more precise with their aiming, and having the on-the-fly DPI buttons on top, and with a total of five levels, four that are LED identified, and on identified with no LEDs present, it makes all needs for a mouse easily covered with a press or two behind the scroll wheel.
We experienced no jitter at high DPI levels, no tracking issues on any of the surfaces we tried, and with the full software suite, customizing it to your every want and desire is possible in this design. Not only can you have Macros on the mouse, but with all the buttons and the various profiles, one could really go nuts with all the options that the EVGA TORQ X10 offers. Personally, we didn't even mind the lack of color options, as we found the default red LEDs to suit this mouse the best.
We did run into one issue with this overall design though. We did love the fact that the center of the mouse raises as the front section and rear section take on a more drastic angle than when we first saw the TORQ X10 out of the box. However, once in the upright position, we found that while speed scrolling with the wheel, say scrolling down a Facebook wall, as we got to the back side of the wheel we were constantly changing the DPI to a higher level. This was not an issue when it was flat, but it's something to be aware of when deciding on this as your next purchase.
We feel EVGA really did a great job with what they have brought to the table this time in the peripherals segment. Choosing all of the top-tier components of the leading selling mice on the market is a great start; implementing them into this easily convertible, ambidextrous design, and being able to make a smaller mouse feel so comfortable to use with the grip pads added on is excellent. Of course, adjusting the height so it takes the strain out of the wrist and palm, for any grip style is also exceptional.
We applaud EVGA for doing so well with their first go with a mouse design from the ground up, and whether you choose the Carbon, or the TORQ X10 you have just seen, we feel it is money well spent to try one of your very own. If you do happen to get in on the promotional deal on Newegg.com, this TORQ X10 from EVGA is an outright steal, and you get a free mouse pad.
