Etekcity Scroll Alpha High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse Review

Etekcity Scroll Alpha High Precision Laser Mouse




The left side of the Scroll Alpha gives us a shiny black plastic for the majority of the side panel, but that is broken up with an almost faux leather texture in the plastic, and is then even further broken up with three lines of lighting. As the side meets the top, while it is still angled forwards, there are a pair of side buttons offered.





Looking from the back, we see that this mouse is much flatter, and is indeed done to be ambidextrous in this design. The logo above will illuminate, but the Etekcity name is painted onto the softer coating applied to that center section.




Just as we expected with an ambidextrous mouse, the right side is identical down to the last detail to the left side. So, now we are already at four buttons found and six thin strips of light to see when powered up.




The front of the mouse comes together in a rounded form in the lower section of the design, and is where the cable comes out of the center. The buttons on either side raises the count now to six, and these are wide, flat, and are cut short of the front like a bite has been taken off it.




The scroll wheel is rubberized in the middle for a good grip, and offers a click down button for number seven. The eight button is set to DPI selection by default, it is translucent so it can be backlit, and can be reprogrammed like all the rest.




Under the mouse, we find a centered sensor eye, and around the edge, we find four irregularly shaped feet. While we expected a set with the Scroll Alpha, there wasn't an extra set included.




The five foot of black cable you are given is also sleeved with black braid, through the choke, and cleanly terminates into the differently shaped plug. The USB 2.0 connection at the end of the plus is gold plated for better/cleaner connectivity.
