Introduction

It is natural for any growing company to look for diversification. For EVGA, a company known for their high quality GPU cards and gaming motherboards, growth has led them to seek further attention from gamers. The company already released several high performance PSUs and a few cases when their first gaming peripheral, the Torq X10 gaming mouse, arrived at our labs. We will be taking a quick look at it and see what it can offer to gamers and advanced users in today's capsule review.

Packaging and bundle

We received the EVGA Torq X10 in a well-designed, wedge-shaped package. The mouse can be clearly seen beneath the clear top of the package, which envelops the mouse and allows for a rough hands-on experience when browsing at a local shop.

Inside the box, we found six cylindrical weights, Teflon feet, an adjustment tool, and a very basic quick-start guide. There is no media with the drivers/software of the mouse; the user will have to download it from EVGA's website. Furthermore, do not fear if you accidentally lose the tool; it is a simple Torx T10 screwdriver that can be easily found at most tool shops or online. Ostensibly, the Torx T10 screw is what gave this mouse its name.

    Can you do a real review on a mouse for once? Max sensor speed, how good the clicks are, open it up and show which buttons it uses, etc. Reply

    I've had a Logitech G5 that survived over 10 years, being most of them playing Diablo 2, which is was known as the "mouse-destroyer" of its day. Yes, it was a bit overpriced - the price of 5 run-of-the-mill mice back then - but it survided longer than 10 mice, so it paid itself many times over. It didn't fade, it didn't peel, the cloth-wrapped cable didn't shred, the buttons still perfectly. It just needed a wet cloth every now and then to clean the gunk out. I happen to be left-handed, and its design, despite being right-handed, doesn't prevent the reverse utilization. So yeah, Logitech gear is a bit of hit-and-miss, but the G5 and another wireless model, ( that I don't remember the exact name, but the single AA battery lasts 9 months) are perfect examples of craftsmanship.
