Disaster for Designers

Summary: At first I loved this mouse, it is very light and easy to move, You can scroll, pan, swipe great idea! Then I used it for work inside Adobe CS and Cad software. You have to be incredibly careful, any light accidental touch on the mouse sent my screen panning to the left or up and down. This mouse might be great for folks who naturally keep all of their fingers in the air above the mouse so as not to accidentally touch it, but I like to work with a relaxed hand.
Summary: Slow to resume... Need to click the left button. Right button click need to pressed too far on the right. The scrolling is not as precise as it is with a scroll wheel. The top shinny part is extremmely easy to scratch. Just left it in my bag for a day and tons of scratch already. I much prefered my old mouse.
Summary: I have never been a fan of Apple's mice or keyboards. They are overpriced, and the quality leaves much to be desired. This new mouse has a very sleek and contemporary look; but it scratches easily.Why should I have to spend $14 for a piece of film to protect it? It's already overpriced as it is. APPLE used to give you a choice of a mouse or trackpad with their iMacs. Now they only include the mouse. If you want the track pad, it's an extra $69. Hmmm..
Summary: When I bought my iMac and pulled the magic mouse out I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Until time passed, more and more problems arose. First off, it doesn't let you right-click, second, the bottom of the mouse is rough and it scrapes both the table and underneath the mouse. One day it just stopped working all-together. Just stopped.
Excerpt: it is very comfortable, easy to move on desktop. But I cannot find any real advantage over our wireless mouse. It can be too sensitive for people like me, a senior with less than a steady hand.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Why get it
