5 out of 5 eggsGood optical mouse!

Pros: Get this instead of a super-cheap mouse. Optical and has a scroll wheel!

Cons: Only a scroll wheel and no additional buttons. Not ideal for hardcore gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple yet reliable

Pros: Easy to set-up, just plug-in and use (Windows 7). Very responsive and comfortable to use. Please note, I'm NOT a gamer, and purchased this exclusively to use for school. For the price, this mouse delivers as advertised!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: If you only need a basic mouse, this is the one! Responds excellently and is comfortable to use.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small, cheap, durable

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've used two of these mice over the course of 4 years. The reason I said that they are durable is because I play a lot of games. Not a day goes by without some intense clicking.

Now, I've never owned an actual gaming mouse, but I plan to purchase one next because the current mouse I am using, the Microsoft basic, broke after a heavy session of GW2. (By broke, I mean the left click only works if I press it near the mousewheel, so it really is rather functional, just not ideal when I'm getting flanked by people on BF3 and my gun doesn't shoot).

Anyways, I recommend this mouse to anyone who just needs a mouse to do its job.

4 out of 5 eggsWell worth the money

Pros: Great design/look, reliable brand, line plentiful, scrolling wheel comfortable, not small.

Cons: Sometimes malfunctions by the left button acting as the right, a simple unplug and plug fixes it but can sometimes get annoying.

Other Thoughts: The "loud" clicks mentioned in other comments are a non-factor and should not influence your decision at all. Clicks like a regular mouse does.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's a basic mouse that gets the job done. The mouse is smaller than other mice I've used but you get used to it.

Cons: The button clicks are loud.
