<--SHOP FOR A CYBER SNIPA S.W.A.T. LASER GAMING MOUSE
PRODUCT COMPOSITION, PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
Inside the box we find the standard stuff - mouse, software mini-CD, and a manual.
The mouse has a nice glossy black finish with a Cyber Snipa S.W.A.T. graphic on it. It is designed for right handed users only which is not an issue for me, but those who are left handed will want to take note. The scroll wheel illuminates when the mouse is plugged in which is a nice touch.
The S.W.A.T has a total of seven buttons, four of which are located in the thumb area. The illuminated button is a DPI toggle button. Off equals 800 DPI and on is 1600 DPI. The two arrow buttons are meant to be used as forward and back buttons while using an internet browser. I was pleased with this since I strongly prefer to have a mouse set up that way anyhow. Those two buttons along with the circular black button are programmable which I'll explain a bit later.
The bottom has four large Teflon feet to help the mouse glide along smoothly. I found these to work pretty well as the mouse was easy to move around quickly but not so much that it got away from me.
