G.Skill Ripjaws Gaming Peripherals Review

Remind you of anything? The MX780 is almost identical to the Razer Ouroborous and Cougar 700M, which is by no means a bad thing given the high reputation those particular gaming mice have.
Adjustability is the name of the game with the MX780. There are two separate side panels so that the mouse can be used either left or right handed, much praise indeed to G.Skill for that decision, and it's underpinned by a seriously sturdy aluminium chassis.
The natural idea with the magnetically switchable side panels is to have a thumb rest on one side depending upon which hand you prefer to game with. But we don't follow the rules so you can also go for an all-narrow option as well as a double-thumb affair. We like choice.
In 'standard' format the MX780 is identical both sides, thanks to its ambidextrous design. No half measures here. Not only are their two side buttons on each side but even the profile lights are duplicated. A touch we can't recall appearing on any other mouse.
The palm rest is adjustable with a supplied hex screw. It's only up and down rather than back and forth, but it should at least help you find the perfect gaming position.
Lastly beneath the magnetic side panels are the spaces for the - supplied - 4.5g weights. Should you wish to fine tune things still further.
