Summary: The rated this product has been rated as 1 star is the one I received is different to the one in the picture. The one in the picture is black and silver, the one Amazon sent me was just black not what I ordered. I contacted Amazon but they were unable to open another one to check the colour so had to send back for a refund. Ended up ordering one from e-bay and only cost £3:20 and it was the right one and brand new.
Summary: As this was the only true 3 button mouse I could find I had no choice when my old Sun finally died. It's a little taller than I like and feels a bit light weight for the money but so far has performed satisfactorily.
Great improvement on one supplied with the machine

Summary: The mouse which came with the computer was a Microsoft one and it seemed a little too trigger happy so I took it back and the replacement was exactly the same - a single click seemed to quite often double click and it was infuriating - this one performs well and I keep my hair on with it!
Summary: Yes, it's a three button mouse and those are seemingly as rare as hen's teeth these days, but you knew that already, indeed it is probably why you are looking at this particular item, so I'm not going to delve too deeply into that. The third real button and lack of scroll wheel aside, this isn't actually such a great mouse. Build quality is perfectly solid but nothing special, and I'd like slightly more tactile feedback to the buttons.
Summary: If you are a Linux user, then this is the One True Mouse. And as another reviewer said, it's the last one. I've been using it for a year, and I suddenly thought "What if something happened to it?" So, I've just bought a spare!
Summary: Works almost perfectly on many surfaces (except white and shiny). Not the best mouse I've tried (hence 4/5 not full marks) but I'm no expert and perhaps this quality is what you expect for the price paid: it struggles with some white surfaces (slightly delayed pickup on these surfaces but still works).
Summary: The item arrived on time and packed efficiently. I wanted it to replace my original mouse which came with my HP computer and keyboard back in 2003, but had stopped working. It fits the hard drive like the old one and works perfectly. If I needed another one I would have no hesitation in buying it this way and from this company again. If I had a more up to date computer though I don't think this is the one to get.
Summary: As a CAD user that spends the vast majority of the working week creating 3D models, it has become increasingly frustrating to have to use a scroll mouse as the pointing device when the middle mouse button is used as frequently as the other two. Thankfully this REAL three-button mouse has the advantages of having a USB connection and optical tracking. Using a scroll mouse in, for instance, Catia, is a pain.
Summary: You've seen the films "The Last of the Mohicans" and "The Last Samurai", well this is "The Last Three-Button Mouse" ... not a film, but a soon-to-be extinct pointing device, in fact the last of its kind: a real three button mouse. For those who think I've gone mad, that mouse you're using right now, that you were told is a three-button mouse ... it isn't, despite what the manufacturers keep saying.
