5 out of 5 eggsInexpensive and my all time favorite

Pros: Very smooth, great price, light weight, precise, the extra buttons are great for gaming, works on mac & pc, and the track wheel is smooth.

Cons: Price of batteries? It may not be ideal for people with large hands.

Other Thoughts: For those having trouble, try a mouse pad. It made all the difference for me. I'm super surprised by the low ratings everywhere. Give it a chance though. It's a great mouse. (I used it hardest in end game WoW.)

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 5 Buttons, Nice Wheel With Side Scroll, wireless

Cons: Optical Sensor is terrible, very odd feeling and choppy. Bottom of the mouse is not flat, causing the mouse to wobble on a flat surface (think of that table at your favorite food place that moves every-time you put your elbow down, or that kitchen chair with one leg that's just shorter than the others.

Other Thoughts: It's unusable for me. I have found that when the mouse rocks to one side (from the bottom not being flat) the optical sensor doesn't sense movement. Very disappointing. Trash.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Expectations, Disappointing Results

Pros: Size of the mouse (fits well in my hand and no cramping), 5 buttons and wheel, configurable buttons, small wireless USB adapter.

Cons: Movement sensor is flaky. I've used this mouse for a couple days and the movement sensor comes a goes on a regular basis.

Most recently the sensor just turned off and nothing I did would turn it back on. The buttons worked, but not the sensor. I tried several different surfaces. I even tried turning the mouse off and on. No luck.

I was annoyed with the movement sensitivity and jitter before. Now I'm thoroughly disappointed.

Other Thoughts: I gave 2 eggs just in the event it was just my particular piece of hardware. However, based on the other reviews I believe the problem is systemic.

4 out of 5 eggsI Like This Mouse

Pros: I like the feel and weight of this mouse. all buttons work as they should. I had problems with using this on a black mouse pad. The cursor would sometimes go spastic. After changing to a light green pad it operates flawlessly.

Cons: The owner's manual and the included software CD are not particularly informative. There is no explanation of the sensitivity button. The connect button and the Off/On switch at the bottom of the mouse are not addressed at all. If I have never owned a wireless mouse before how would I know what a "connect" button is for. DUH

Other Thoughts: Don't know why I should need to search the internet to find out how the mouse works. I think I understand how everything works. At least it seems to be working fine. I removed one egg for this.

1 out of 5 eggsThis mouse sucks

Pros: more than 3 buttons

Cons: within the first week of owning this mouse it started skipping around the screen and glitching out occasionally.

Other Thoughts: When i bought this mouse i had high expectations for it and i was excited to use it for gaming and such. however, i was disappointed by the quality of the performance soon enough. If you plan on buying this product don't be the least bit surprised if it only brings frustration.

1 out of 5 eggsThe Feels Great - But the Quality Ain't

Pros: Large - >Won't Leave Your Palm on the Desk

Five Buttons - Including two thumb buttons which are
customizable to actions

Can change the sensitivity on the fly

Sideways Scroll Buttons

Cons: Bad optical sensor that jumps

The scroll wheel broke within 2 weeks!!!

Awful Range

Other Thoughts: I liked it when I first bought it because of the feel (which is great), the five buttons and the side-ways scrolling. But when I first used it, the optical sensor wouldn't work on any surface that is as smooth as glass, or it will jump around the screen and wake up my computer if I forgot to turn it off. Currently I'm using a piece of paper taped to a mouse pad. Then there's the range, which is limited to ten feet. And the scroll wheel ruins it. It broke (by which I mean would go down no matter which direction turned) in two weeks. I had to take out the wheel!!!

In conclusion, this has been a waste of my $30 and is only a poorly made Chinese knock off. DO NOT BUY!!!!!
