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: 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.
HP PS/2 2-Button Optical Scroll Mouse: A poor and outdated mouse: get yourself a new USB one instea ...
11 August 2010
Summary: The HP scroll mouse has now gone beyond is past due date. Its looks, performance and reliability are all outdated and this clearly shows in daily usage. The mouse is built to be basic and very cheap. You can tell this from the materials used to the performance almost straight out of the box. This mouse is slow, unresponsive and extremely unreliable. Despite inbuilt optical tracking, the quality of the response is worse than many of its ball roller ancestors.
Pros: long connecting cable, neutral styling
Cons: poor performance, reliability and a lack of modern-day mouse features.
Summary: As you would expect from a reliable and well-established brand like HP, this HP USB mouse is easy to install, efficient, and does what you would expect. In general a laser mouse is far more effective than a traditional ball-rolling mouse, the pointer travels far more smoothly across the screen and you don't have the same issues with dust or other dirt collecting in the roller. If you're looking for a new mouse I would definitely recommend investing in a laser variant.
Pros: Reliabel, precise, easy to use, durable.
Cons: The fact that it's wired could be a disadvantage for some.
