Introduction

The mouse is an integral part of your system, what you do with it determines what type of mouse you will want to use. Sunbeamtech is a maker of a wide variety of items, they are fairly new as they launched in 2000. Located in Taipei within China, they make cases, lights, fans and much more. Today we are going to look at their latest gaming mouse the X-1300; they have two different models the Sensor-X and the X-Sharp. I will be taking a spin with the X-Sharp. Sunbeam is stepping up to the gaming grade mouse plate; the only spin here is that they offer a low price. Let's take a look and see if this less expensive mouse can hold up in line with such other mice as the Mx-518 from Logitech. I would like to thank Sunbeam for the chance to review this mouse too.

First Looks

Packaging for the X-Sharp is the same box you can get the Sensor-X in, they have the name and picture of both and place a dot on which one is inside. The box is fairly flashy, not bad looking and it even gives you a glimpse inside the box as it has some clear plastic to the right. Front and back of the box boast of the switchable DPI, you can use it at 1300 or 650.


The back also lists some other details; the X-Sharp and Sensor-X are the same except for appearance. Taking the mouse out of the packaging it looks semi bulky as to what I'm personally used to. It does have a sleek looking design, the left and right buttons are both over sized and it has a center scroll wheel. Flipping it over on its back we find the selector switch, here you adjust to either 1300 or 650 DPI. You also see that it has 3 Teflon coated mouse feet. It looks really good and would compliment a black or red themed case well.


Here are specifications from the Sunbeam site:

- 1300 - 650 switchable DPI.
- 300% more precise than 400 DPI optical mice.
- Super bright LED and low heat output.
- Sleek ergonomic design.
- Non-slip side rolls with special light effect.
- Super large non-slip button.
- Super wide mouse wheel.
- Plated max-conductive USB connectors.
