Default Scroll Wheel question

What's the difference between 1x wheel and Tilt wheel on a mouse?

Hey,

I believe that the Tilt wheel means you can scroll Left and Right as well as Up and Down

Oh, the horizontal thing. My notebook mouse has that feature. I don't like it which is why I hardly use the left/right tilt. It just doesn't feel right navigating through a page like that. Good info though, thanks.

If the tilt wheel were used more in games, then I would definitely reconsider getting another new mouse with that feature. Just right now, I don't know of any PC games that actually use the tilt feature of the mouse.

I never thught of that, i can imagine moving the camera view using the horizontal tilt...or maybe to tilt left, punch with the left hand, and vice versa
