EVGA TORQ X10 Overview
The EVGA TORQ X10 package includes the mouse (with a nicely braided USB cable), a set of weights, an adjustment tool, and an envelope labeled “Accessory” that contains a multi-language quick start guide and a spare set of PTFE mouse feet.
The mouse has a stippled hard plastic surface. The metal scroll wheel has a ribbed rubber covering, and the two red thumb switches on the side look exactly like anodized metal but are actually plastic. The rocker switch controlling on-the-fly DPI selection sits above four red LEDs.
Here’s a surprise: the right side of the mouse is identical to the left side of the mouse. In fact the design is completely symmetrical and can be used by either right- or left-handed persons.
At the bottom of the mouse we can see the Avago laser sensor. Is 8200DPI too much? We’ll see. In the meantime, the red button above the sensor in this image cycles among the mouse’s five macro profiles. It might seem odd to have this on the bottom of the mouse, but you wouldn’t want to accidentally switch profiles in the middle of a game, would you? When you press this button, a “PROFILE X” message appears briefly at the bottom of the screen, showing what profile you just selected (1-5).
I’ll look at the detailed features of the TORQ X10 in the next section.
