Endgame Gear XM1 Review 1

Endgame Gear XM1 Review

Surface & Build Quality »


The Endgame Gear XM1 box is simple but effective. It has a lot of foam padding inside the window-less, rectangular box, so your newest gaming device should take no damage during shipping. The box itself has a black, gray, and yellow color scheme with some particles here and there, and there are the usual render images and specifications. As for the contents, it has the XM1 and a quick-start guide—no replacement mouse feet or any other goodies, unfortunately.


Out of the box, it's clear that Endgame Gear didn't want to create anything fancy. This mouse is about raw performance and not the eye candy by any means. Of course, this doesn't mean it doesn't look good. On the contrary, I think its minimalism is pretty rad, but that's naturally a matter of personal preference. The mouse itself is ambidextrous with side buttons on the left side only, so it will mainly suit right-handed users.

The XM1 is rather low profile and of average length. While it's not very tall, the mouse is pretty wide and flares out at its back-end a bit. This makes it most ideal for claw-gripping, but depending on the size of your hands, it can be used with palm and fingertip grips as well. I personally found it to be relatively comfortable for my 18x9 cm hands with a relaxed claw grip.

The mouse is about 122.14 (4.80") long, which puts it into the medium-sized category. Its total width is 65.81 mm (2.47"), but the width at which it is gripped is more like 57 mm (2.24"). The total height is 38.26 mm (1.51"), and the hump is at the back. With these dimensions and such a shape, this mouse is highly versatile, potentially ideal for all grip styles, depending on individual preferences.

Here are a few extra pictures of the mouse:
