Pros: I like the rubber grip and feel of the mouse. It isn't as "big" as I was thinking it would be from the other reviews.
Cons: I would have given this mouse 5 eggs but I just found out Kensington isn't planning on supporting Windows 7 for the 5 button programming. From their FAQ: "Is Kensington planning to release MouseWorks software compatible with Microsoft Vista or Windows 7? There are currently no plans to update Mou...
Summary: For the price, getting two years out of this mouse is probably good enough. I've had this same track record with other mice of similar configurations at different price points. I'm ready to try another manufacturer and see where that gets me.
Pros: Comfortable mouse, 5 buttons, good price.
Cons: The mousewheel started to slip past its stop points and failing to scroll as I'm approaching the two year ownership point. It's now nearly impossible to scroll with the mouse, which makes it very frustrating to use. The honeycomb patterned rubber on the sides gets gunk in the recessed areas very ...
Pros: I've been using this mouse for over three plus years every day. It has never failed me so far. I love its contour. It is perfect for my hand. The rubber grip is just simply wonderful. I use it for design work and I love it.
Summary: I love this mouse, but the left mouse button stopped working reliably after a year. I was about to buy another one (I would gladly buy this variety of mouse every year) when I figured, meh, let's take it apart.
Pros: It's big; I love it.
Cons: Sometimes a button or two will stop working reliably after a year or so BUT see my other thoughts.
Summary: Used for a computer build for a client, paired with a Kensington keyboard. They make a nice couple :)
Pros: The rubber grip is nice and comfortable. The design is comfortable in my hand, and I imagine feels comfortable for most people. It's a nice design. Works like I expect any mouse to work.
Cons: Construction feels a little cheap; overall mouse feel is kind of hollow. Maybe it's because I'm used to more solid gaming grade mice like the MX518 and my weighted G5 /shrug. Only one egg off for this because of the 30-dollar price tag.
Summary: Don't let the button-breaking stray you away. If you have big hands, are right handed, and are looking for the right mouse, give this one a try. I've owned 3 of these mice so far, and it's still my number 1 choice.
Pros: This is an awesome mouse. It's my favorite one. It's the cheapest 5 button mouse I have found. It has excellent tracking, and I never installed the mouseworks software it came with, it works fine without it (who needs an extra service running anyway?). The rubber on the sides gives you a comforta...
Cons: As the other reviewers said, the right mouse button goes out in about a year. Once it goes out, you can still use it, you just have to click twice, or a little harder, which can be irritating. I was very sad when this happened the first time, but then I discovered that this mouse is under a 5 yea...
