My quest to test the ultimate gaming mouse, the Cougar Minos X5 came to a disappointing end after putting in all the hard work.

Why was it a disappointing end? Because soon after my tests I discovered that in this review that had already been done which confirmed very much the same findings I discovered on my mouse test.

Here is a break down of my findings for this souped-up 2000hz poll rate bit of hardware.

Feel Of Buttons When Clicked

The buttons we decent too, however, nothing really stood out regarding feel and comfort. It is really hard to put this in words, but the clicks simply did not feel that rewarding at all.

Mouse Wheel & Rolling Capability

The mouse wheel was. OK, it had short scrolling clicks which I personally like the feel of, but nothing groundbreaking in terms of quality and solidity.
