Func MS-3 Mouse Review

Hardware Secrets Silver Award


Gamers with big hands are often forgotten by the companies that make gaming-grade peripherals. Thinking about these players, Func, a California-based company that had been dormant for a while, is releasing the MS-3, a big mouse with a large palm-grip design that features twelve programmable functions and 5,670 dpi of resolution. We tested it along with the new Surface 1030 XL mousepad, also from Func. We will first introduce the products and then we will see how they fared.

The MS-3 has a wide rubberized body, with rests for the thumb, ring finger, and the pinkie. It is all-black and features illumination on the wheel, with three small LEDs (that indicate the current sensitivity setting) located on the left border, and on the Instant Aim button (right in the middle of the thumb niche). Beside the Instant Aim button, the thumb niche houses the traditional back/forward navigation buttons, and another one on the base that mutes audio. Below the wheel, there are two buttons to change the dpi settings. On the right upper corner, there is one more button, this one dedicated to changing the user profiles. All these functions can be reprogrammed.
