Good for Larger Hands
Pros: - Full-sized mouse for my large hands.
Cons: - Smooth scroll wheel: This bothers me the most. Not only do I miss the click feeling, I often accidentally scroll because there is nothing to stop it.
Other Thoughts: Researching mice size was close to impossible because some manufacturers don't publish their dimensions and local stores don't carry all of the brands.

Pros: I worship the 5000 mouse. Fits my large meaty paw. Paranoid they may quit making it, so this one is my ace in the hole. It seems to be exactly the same as my other one even though the SKU is different. I use the Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse Center software. It is very slick, although to configure the pointer speed you still have to go to control panel>mouse>pointer options.
Cons: Wish the transceiver was not so long. I can't put it in the front of the PC because the dog or I would hit it. Consequently I have it on a cable that is hot glued to the desk under my mouse. I wish it came in colors so I could tell my 2 apart (I put red dot on one mouse and the transceivers are interchangeable)
Other Thoughts: I know of no other mouse across all brands that is this size with 5 buttons that works so well. Tell me why, Newegg you don't have a picture of the transceiver? Had to call one of your pre-sales people to determine if it is the same as the previous 5000. He finally found it on Google for sale in another store by using the UPC code. And yes I tried calling Microsoft and the don't show this model is even in their database - yet. A single picture would have saved me two hours.
