Mouse Settings Software

The MS-3 mouse comes with a CD containing the software settings program. Our sample has version 1.22 on the disk, though a newer 1.26 version is available for download at the time of writing and which we used for testing this mouse.

Func warns that users who may be experience compatibility issues with Windows 8 may need to update motherboard, mainboard, or system drivers so that USB ports are compatible with Windows 8.

Software navigation is located along the top. Three profiles can be modified and are programmed into the mouse’s onboard memory. The first screen is devoted to Basic Settings which are the DPI settings including Instant Aim, pointer sensitivity, double click speed, lift off distance, scroll speed, angle snapping, pointer acceleration, and polling rate (refresh rate.)Func MS-3 Gaming MouseThe Button Assignment menu allows the user to assign commands to any button on the mouse including the scroll wheel.Func MS-3 Gaming MouseHere are the options available in order from Default commands, Windows commands, and Media functions.Func MS-3 Gaming MouseThere are two custom lighting zones on the MS-3, the scroll wheel and one of the right side buttons. They can be customized independently from one another. Several sliders control the color settings though fine tuning colors would be much more doable inputting 0-255 RGB values.Func MS-3 Gaming MouseThe Macro Editor is fairly basic only allowing for live recording with no ability to edit to the string afterwards.

    Personally, I don’t care for finger rests. It makes it hard to pick up the mouse to preposition it. I’d rather have a flat surface on the right.

      How does it make it harder to pick up the mouse? o.O…I, myself, think the ergonomic design will do a lot for me. I’ve had embarrassing deaths on games many a time because I wasn’t holding my mouse comfortably

      • Nacelle

        I squeeze the mouse on the sides to pick it up. Thumb on one side, pinky + ring finger on the other. Without a flat surface, my fingers slip off. Which means I have to squeeze harder than I otherwise would to hold the mouse.

          Strange. I hold the mouse full handed when picking it up. Flat surfaces tend to be more slippery for me and according to basic physics than not flat surfaces

          My Razer Death Adder has a rubber grip on it’s right side.

          With pressure coming in straight from the side, an angled surface is more likely to cause your fingers to slip off.
