When I got a press release announcing that a new mouse, the FUNC MS-3 Gaming Mouse, was coming out I will have to admit that I have never heard of FUNC let alone that they had made gaming mice in the past. So I thought I would check out this one of a kind mouse and give it a once over. I am pleased that I did and I will be showing you why.

Product was given in exchange for work done to produce this review.
Packaged in a striking white box with a minimum of information about the mouse you kind of get the feeling that you might be looking at an Apple product. The detail that you are given on the back of the box highlights the five basic parts to the mouse; the comfort, buttons, customizable LED’s, construction material, and the instant aim button.
A flip of lid allows you to take your first look of the FUNC MS-3. Right away you notice that this mouse is not like others with it shape. Inside the box you get the mouse, software and owner manual.
