exactly what I needed 10/2/2010 8:12:36 PM

Pros: Overall I am very happy with this mouse and for the following reasons:

--Mouse has flat buttons on the side so I don't keep accidentally hitting them (as I have with other mice)
--The wiring from the USB plug to the mouse is thick and strong. In the past I've had thin wires that eventually break around the USB plug because of all the twisting (I constantly am moving around with my laptop).
--The DPI settings are incredibly handy. If I am trying to do something very precise I can turn it all the way down with the low setting and the mouse moves very gingerly around the page.
--The wheel has a wonderful rubber texture which doesn't slip because it grips my finger well!

Cons: I know this mouse is for either hand, but it could be shaped a little differently so it is more comfortable in my hand.

Overall Review: Overall a great mouse for a decent price. If you want performance for a competitive price, this is the mouse for you. If you want this mouse for gaming, think of getting a different one that has a lot more buttons for your shortcuts/macros.

I like it! 8/25/2010 1:37:40 PM

Pros: The price was good.
It is a fairly bulky mouse, but I have bigger hands, so I like it. The women and some men in the office said they don't like the mouse due to its size tho.
I like the 3 button mouse scroll speed control (located on top of the mouse).

Cons: none for me, but size for those with smaller hands.

Overall Review: Personally I like the mouse. The scroll wheel is pretty smooth. It's not the smoothest I've ever used, but it's smoother than most I have used. The forward and backward buttons on the sides of the mouse are possitioned well for my hands, but I can see how others with smaller hands wouldn't like it. All in all, great product, even for microsoft ;)

Great Mouse 8/15/2010 6:19:20 AM

Pros: Received the product in the time frame newegg projected. Even with it shipping separately from CA. Great work newegg!! SO that everyone is aware this is an OEM item, you don't get the pretty packaging. Which by the way who cares about the packaging it is the product that really matters. I received the driver disk and the mouse wrapped adequately in bubble wrap, in a much larger than needed box.

The mouse glides very smoothly, you can change response time on the fly. Drivers were effortless and painless to install. Has a nice look and is comfortable to use. I like that it is wired as I have had issues with wireless Microsoft mice in the past. If your looking for a good, solid mouse then give this one some thought.

Cons: My only complaint is that it only has vertical scrolling, no horizontal scrolling. It would have been nice if you could program one of the hot buttons on the side to activate horizontal scrolling and use the vertical wheel to do both on the fly. Not a newegg or microsoft problem really, just something that I wish was a feature on this mouse

Overall Review: As for the reviewers that said their pads were scratched. Mine were scratched too from what looks to be use. But after inspecting the mouse I really don't think it was used. There was no actual wear on the pads, no wear on the buttons and the lenses were crisp and clean. The scratches could be a result of a manufacturing process and I am not sure where the OEM's came from, but it could be a possibility that these were rejected do to the scratches and made for sale under OEM. The scratches do not affect the operation of the mouse in anyway and they are on the underside of the mouse you don't see them so it really doesn't matter.

Good "3" button mouse 8/9/2010 10:40:54 AM

Pros: Good feel in the hand. I like the shape. Descent quality.

Cons: The buttons on each side are sunken and small. They are in poor locations for normal mouse handling.

Overall Review: I would only get half my money back after shipping and restocking fees. I figured I'd throw the mouse in my laptop bag and use it for traveling and not for reliable 5-button use.

Used feet? **update 8/3/2010 6:21:14 AM

Pros: Good cheap mouse, great features for the price.

Cons: Scratched \ Used Feet.

Overall Review: Updated to a G500, as the 2000 DPI wasnt quite enough for my tastes. I'm going to keep this as a backup, as for 30$ its a great mouse.

Im still really upset that newegg would send me something with used feet, i dont understand how they could get scratched, unless they put the mouse in the bag at the factory after testing it on the floor.

Nice little mouse 8/3/2010 5:26:32 AM

Pros: Great little mouse. Does everything a high end mouse would do, minus the weights and high DPI sensor.

Cons: For the OEM price, can't think of any!

Overall Review: Not sure why my mouse came with worn feet. I'm actually almost 100% certain it was a refurb item, and not OEM. Either way, my feet came visibly scratched, with several fairly deep gouges in them.

This is something you notice if you are a gamer ;), don't try and pull the wool over my eyes!

Great Mouse 7/25/2010 2:45:54 PM

Pros: I use my laptop 6-8 hours a day if not more. After four months of having this mouse I don't know why I did not get one sooner. I have the side buttons programed two functions I often use and this makes my day a whole lot easier. I thought I was going to be tied by the wire but I find that to be very minor compared to its advantages.
This Mouse Is Just Down Right Awesome!

Cons: Haven't found any, unless you are looking for wireless.

Overall Review: It's GRRRREATTT!
