Inside the Scroll X1
Inside of the Scroll X1, we find duties have been divided into two PCBs, and in the top of the mouse, we also see added steel weights. Things on the lower half look pretty simple too, but let's get in closer to see what they are using in this mouse.
The PCB from the top half of the mouse has a pair of Huano switches on the side of the mouse, and for the DPI buttons, those are backed with typical black pad style switches. Both sets of switches are audible when used, and require a bit of force to use.
Under the left click button, we find an Omron D2FC-F-7N switch used. This switch is good for five million clicks, and is solid, and again requires some force, meaning it is not easily accidentally pressed.
A bit further down the left side of the mouse, we run into the Holtek HT82A525R. This is the USB MCU, the brains of the operation.
In the center of the PCB, we find Etekcity uses an Avago ADNS A5050 sensor. In this instance, its DPI tops out at 2400, but this optical sensor is still spry enough to make you forget all about super high DPI settings.
Getting back up to the front, this time on the right side of the mouse, we find a pair of switches under the LED that illuminates the scroll wheel. The one closest is under the right click button and is another Omron switch. The one further away for clicking the scroll is again a Huano switch like those up top.
Once the Etekcity mouse is plugged in, software running or not, for the lighting, you have three ways you can have it. The scroll wheel is always red no matter what else you do, but as default, when at 800DPI, the logo on the heel is always green.
When you move to 1600DPI, the logo turns red to match the scroll wheel. Right now, we feel this is the best look for the Scroll X1, and don't worry, you can change settings around to get red lights and the settings you want.
The last option is to press the DPI button a third time and go with 2400DPI. The light in the heel then turns blue to note the switch. Keep in mind, these colors can and will also designate which profile you are using.
