This review is from: Kensington k72110us Black 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 1000 dpi Mouse
Pros: Scroll wheel is accurate. For every indent there is an event in Windows. No scrolling and nothing happening for what is a single indent (felt notch) change. I really like the response of the scroll wheel. The wheel is flat and wide instead of a tapered narrow wheel making it easier to position and rest the finger. The cord is not stiff so it moves with the mouse and bends to eliminate torque on the mouse. The sides are shiny hard plastic instead of rubberized making cleaning the mouse easier. Yet my fingers do not slip on gripping the mouse. It is a silent mouse. No clicking noises when pressing the mouse buttons.
Cons: A bit small, like a compact mouse. Wanted this for a desktop so I end up with my fingers curled and my palm NOT resting atop the mouse, so it is less comfortable than a full mouse. The biggest problem and why I have to replace this new mouse is that it quickly began missing clicks. I could feel the switch do a break action but apparently the switches are break-before-make which means you feel the break but have not yet made contact. The result is a LOT of missed mouse clicks. About a third of the time, I have to re-click. When a click is missed, it can take 3-4 more clicks before the switch works. Not good for use on wood desks: the mouse cursor will bounce all over when the mouse is sitting idle on my wood desk. So I use a mouse pad.
Other Thoughts: There is a 2-year warranty on this mouse. Who is going to pay $8 for shipping when the mouse only cost $12. Easier and nearly the same cost to buy a Logitech M100 for $8 (plus $2 shipping). Yeah, I know, those Logitechs (M100, B100, B120) begin to bounce their switches after a year but I buy 2 at a time (to have a spare when the first one goes bad) and buy another 2 when the 2nd goes bad. Doesn't matter what you pay in price. Mice are all cheaply made. I probably won't even keep this as a drawered spare but just toss it (but I will contact Kensington to see if they might replace without me having to pay the shipping to return it to them). Other than the flaky switches (feel the indent but no contact), it is a good mouse (a bit undersized for my hand as it is a compact mouse), but bad switches pretty much renders the mouse too flaky to continue using. If it were not for the bad switches, I would given this mouse 4 stars (only because it is a compact mouse but doesn't say so here - Newegg should give the physical dimensions of the device to know what size mouse you are getting).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech B120 USB Mouse - Black
Pros: Not a compact mouse (which forces me to curl my fingers instead of cradle the mouse). Buttons are noisy (feedback sound from switch) but they have a good feel (tactical response) - until they start bouncing (see Other section).
Cons: Switches start bouncing (double clicking on a single press) after a year. Get 2, or more, if you like this mouse's feel and response as you'll need another in a year (and after the warranty has elapsed). This is not a rare defect. Seems to happen with everyone using these low-end Logitechs.
Other Thoughts: Logitech has 2 mice with the same model number: B120-TAA (model # M-B0001, they say to find the product ID underneath) and B120 Optical Combo Mouse (no model # specified, PID 910-001802). You won't know which B120 you are getting from Newegg. They are all made in China (not necessarily a bad trait but makes identification tough since Logitech won't recognize some of the PIDs). I had their M-100 (twice) but after about a year the switches begin to bounce: you get 2 clicks when you tapped only once. These mice are therefore disposable because they are not durable. Figure on buying another one in a year. Until their switches begin to bounce, the feel and response of them is very good. I buy 2 at a time knowing in a year the switch will bounce, move to the 2nd one (unused until then), and then order a couple more as backups. For the price, a year is okay. It's like buying a cheap Timex watch and replacing it when it breaks (or you damage it): cheaper to replace, no big loss, just the nuisance (but not if you plan by getting a spare).READ FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: Newegg has a nasty habit of claiming a rebate is available so users are misled into thinking the overall price will be cheaper. The rebate for this particular product states "11/20/2013 - 11/26/2013" (so it expired yesterday as of this posting).
You'll get the $159.99 price from Newegg ($169.00 - $10 instant discount) but you will NOT get the rebate of $30.
For rebates claimed by Newegg as available, be sure to read the rebate form to find out if it is still valid (not expired) and actually applies to the product you'd be buying from Newegg.
