Etekcity Scroll X1 Optical Gaming Mouse

The Scroll X1's left side starts at the bottom with a center section of rubber with ribs to afford a good grip on the mouse. Above that is an arching section of shiny plastic that houses a pair of buttons that offer forward and back click by default, but are programmable.

At this end of the mouse, we find no straight angles, the sides are a bit off angled, the heel isn't square either, but the whole mouse has a nice ergonomic lean to the right though. The Etekcity name is painted on, but their logo above will illuminate when powered.

The right side looks much like the left side does, with minor changes. There is still the rubber section at the bottom, this time on a deeper curve, and its size is smaller. Above though, we again find the shiny plastic before moving into the matte finish at the top.

The front of the Scroll X1 is open in front of the wheel, and the buttons on either side come to a point in the middle. The cord then has no option but to be off center as it comes out of the left side of the Scroll X1.

The coating on the top is soft to the touch, almost slick, but is rubberized as well. There is a bit of brushed metal surrounding the DPI selector buttons, with the rubber centered scroll wheel hanging out there by itself.

Back to the USB cable that comes from the mouse for a second as we now get a look at the five foot of it bundled up in this image. There is a gold plated USB 2.0 connection inside of a uniquely designed plastic end that will be easy to find in the rear I/O, and the rest of the cable is braided to dress things up.

Under the mouse, we find that the sensor eye is right in the middle, and at the points of the X-like shape of this design, we find one of the four feet that this mouse glides on.
