2 out of 5 eggsRequires mechanical adjustment

Pros: Good ergonomics, tilt wheel, wireless, optical, two extra buttons, small receiver. You can program extra buttons to execute simple commands from a limited list. I program them to be copy and paste. This is a must for me. The driver is less buggy compared to a similar mouse from Logitech (I am using both on different computers). OK battery life. With the mouse always on, I get more than 3 months on one set of alcaline batteries.

Cons: The manufacturing design and quality is bad. The sensor rotational orientation deviates from the proper position. As the result, you move the mouse horisontally, and the cursor moves diagonally. I had to take the mouse apart and adjust the sensor rotation - had to bend the pins. Do not try this at home.

Also, the sensor was positioned so that it could not see the desk surface in focus. This resulted in erratic cursor movement. I determined by trial and error which way it needed to be adjusted and by how much. I had to file down some plastic to bring the sensor in focus. Now it works perfectly on any surface. Don't try this at home either.

Other Thoughts: After I made mechanical adjustments, I have a perfect mouse. But you really need to be technically savvy to do it without destroying the mouse.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's Decent

Pros: Easy to install and use. Does exactly what you would expect from a wireless mouse.

Cons: Honestly the cons are more personal preferences and could have been deal breakers for me.

1. The usb receiver doesn't have a slot to be carried on the mouse. Gives it the potential to be lost.

2. The on/off switch is extremely small! Far too small for an average adult to switch easily.

3. The customization of the buttons is limited to whatever software they give you. There aren't any options for custom macros/buttons

Other Thoughts: It's a good mouse overall. For the price and normal size I'd probably buy it despite the cons.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for a while, but not very sturdy-

Pros: This mouse is quite large for your typical wireless mouse. For someone with big hands, like me, that was a huge plus. Initially the buttons were responsive and it was very good for the heavy to light gaming I liked to do on top of homework and general browsing. Overall I'd say it was a fairly decent wireless replacement for my usual DeathAdder wired mouse, for a while.

Cons: After dropping it just one time, the right mouse button became stuck and only responded to heavy pushes. Also, after long term usage (~6 months), the scroll wheel, well, there's no better way to put it than just "wigged out." It started responding very, VERY erratically, to the point of being practically unusable. I'm not sure whether this was related to the earlier drop or not.

And I'm not sure if this was an issue with my computer, but if you leave the receiver plugged into a laptop overnight in sleep mode, there is a chance that upon waking up the laptop will not recognize the mouse whatsoever, and the receiver needed to be unplugged from the laptop completely and plugged back in.

Other Thoughts: Final word-- I guess if you don't drop it, it can work for much longer than what I got out of it. But I'm a college student, expecting me to not drop something is just silly. 3/5.

1 out of 5 eggsworst mouse I have ever tired

Pros: Not relevant.

Cons: By orders of magnitude, this is the worst mouse I have ever tried. It appears to work, in that all buttons are functional and such, but it is so inaccurate that it is almost unusable. It takes at least 3-5 tries to get the pointer properly positioned. I have made every adjustment that I can and nothing helps. I was using an inexpensive Logitech 310 before and it works great. I wanted a few more buttons, but the is definitely not the mouse to go with for that.

I have tried both with the included software installed and uninstalled. I sent an email to tech support, but I don't even know if I will take another one of these in return.

Really disappointing.

5 out of 5 eggssize and feel

Pros: I like the look and feel to the mouse. I wanted a wireless mouse that was first large, not a tiny one, for my laptop and this works perfectly.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: There's a button on top of the mouse next to the scroll wheel....haven't figured out what it does yet other than turning on a green led underneath

5 out of 5 eggsNice Mouse

Pros: This is a great wireless mouse. It as a larger size and a great ergonomic design. I miss the size of the old Micro soft Intellimouse pro because I do drafting and all the other mice, especially wireless, are small with no meat to them. This one is very close to that size and I took a chance buying it and it fits my preferances.

Cons: I noticed I had to put the adaptor in the front of my case to get a good signal.
