The design is all about straight lines and angular shapes. No more dragging your pinky along the pad as the Spatha X has a comfortable rest for the most useless gaming finger. Six of the buttons are placed on the side. If they are easily reachable or not, this is strictly a personal matter.

The 12-button side plate is nothing new, however, the ergonomics are hard to beat. Even some of the more expensive models featuring a similar design don’t come close to the Logitech G600 in terms of comfort.
Each of the 12 buttons can be programmed to the function of your choice. The main issue with this mouse is its availability. It’s a model that has always been in high demand so you will not find it that easily.
