Pros: Smooth glide, comfortable shape and surface texture, cool looking, long USB cable, good customer support for replacements (see Cons).
Cons: Wheels fail far too often. I have been buying lots of these mice for years for our office and far too often in less than a year the wheel fails, becoming either jerky or unresponsive, or for the heavy-handed users the main button fails.
Overall Review: At $50-$60 I expect them to last longer but it's such a great mouse that I put up with the high failure rate.
Pros: Affordable, reputable brand. Originally no problems.
Cons: Purchased three identical SSDs for three Lenovo laptops. Two of the drives are apparently fine, but the third is now producing frequent chkdsk errors and BSODs.
Overall Review: I will not buy this model again.
Pros: In my previous review I gave the drive a poor rating, but it's my bad. The drive was in a USB 2 port, which is very slow. In a USB 3 port the drive performs admirably.
Pros: Large capacity, reasonable price.
Cons: We bought this device because it has large capacity and was shown as rated for ReadyBoost with Vista, which usually implies compatibility with Windows 7. Apparently not! It won't work with Windows 7 64-bit on two very different machines, one old laptop and one new workstation. It's also too wide. I had to remove other usb cables to get this into the slot. What the heck?
Overall Review: Don't buy this for ReadyBoost.
