Hi there. I have the Sidewinder X6 and X8 and I am very pleased, not too sure if I will ever get back to a wired mouse again. Don't know much about the X3 but I'm contemplating on getting the X4 for my second machine, looks really nice, lesser features than the X6, bigger but the same solid build.

Benchmark Scores None. Primary uses are browsing, music, gaming (mostly Battlefield) and virtualization!
The X3 is a nice mouse (high quality materials), Im using one right now, but it gets a bit creaky after a while, and is rather light. So if those two things dont bother you, go for it, good bit of kit in terms of specs (sensor is very good) and ergonomics :rockout:

Don't know too much about the X4 though!
