Func MS-3 Review

2

Manufcaturer: Func
Model: MS-3 Gaming Mouse
RRP: ~£60 (At time of review)

Today we have the Func MS-3 Gaming Mouse (here on Ms-3) to put through the Play3r ringer.

Func are relatively a old but seemingly under the radar company when it comes to peripherals. Founded in California in 1999, their first hit was the Func Surface 1030 mouse pad – of which we have the spiritual successor reviewed here too – and the MS-3 is their latest and currently only gaming mouse. Coming in at an RRP of £60 the mouse is certainly in the competitive zone of the market, and indeed, the last mouse I covered was chomping at the bit to dominate this price zone so it will be interesting to see how the MS-3 stacks up.
