Gigabyte Aivia M8600 Mouse Review

Up Close - The M8600
We'll start off with the battery section which is part of the rear of the M8600. This design has multiple benefits as you aren't reliant upon breaking your nail on the cover, or seeking out new batteries that have been stolen for remote controls, and it keeps the main weight right in the centre for optimum control.
For the second mouse review in a row we have a truly ambidextrous mouse in the Aivia M8600. The "regular" side has the back and forward buttons that we're all used to now...
And the right hand side we have an alternative couple of buttons. The scroll-wheel looks like it's been nicked off a slot car racer and also includes the side-scrolling feature. At the very front is a small flap that hides a mini-USB port, so you can run the mouse as cabled if you so desire.
Behind the scroll wheel we have the LED indicators for battery level and currently selected profile, as well as DPI increase and reduce buttons too.
There is a fair amount of stuff on the underside. As well as the centrally-mounted sensor we have a genuine on-off button, the battery removal switch, the wireless pairing button and a charging point.
