FINALLY a mouse for my huge hands
Bobby C., Amazon

Summary: I have huge hands with long fingers... my ski gloves are 3XL and the middle finger of one is still a bit tight. I am a software developer so I spend a lot of time in front of the computer and this mouse has been AWESOME. On days where I have to use a mouse for long consecutive periods of time, I used to end up with sore crampy hands. Now that's a thing of the past. And if you're not a hardcore gamer, this mouse probably performs better than you will ever need.
Summary: I cant stress enough how much I love this thing. I've had 2 of them over the course of maybe 5 or 6 years. I was so sad when the first one started falling apart that I went out and got the exact same thing. I love the feel and the weight, and the way it moves across a mouse pad feels just right. However, I have large hands and they still dont quite reach the forward most thumb button the way I hold the mouse. I do have a small complaint about the rubber sides.
Summary: My wireless mouse completely stopped working recently, so I needed a new mouse. I play video games and have bound actions to mouse buttons so I needed a mouse that had the extra buttons. My old mouse had one extra button on each side, while this mouse as the "forward" and "back" buttons both on the left hand side. It took some getting used to but I think I like it better this way. The mouse feels very sturdy and fits even my small hands nicely.
Summary: This mouse still performs like a champ after 2+ years of heavy use. I have no qualms with the build or performance. It's comfortable to use and still looks practically new with little/no deterioration of the rubberized grip or metallic finish. The extra buttons are great for some casual gaming. This is by far the best mouse I've ever had, and yet it's one of the cheapest.
Summary: i've had this mouse for quite a while im not even sure where and when i bought it. all i know its been years already. i was thinking of upgrading to a new wireless mouse as soon as this thing breaks. unfortunately, i cannot justify to get a new one because i didn't want to throw it or waste keeping it somewhere. im not sure what the others got but mine is still solid as a rock. i really like the buttons on the side and the clickable scroll wheel.
Summary: Great Mouse for the money. It works well on a Mac. Has a few extra programmable buttons that come in handy. I am mostly a fan of the design though- it fits my hand nicely preventing the hand cramps that I get with most other mice. I've had this for two years and I haven't had any problems with it.
Summary: I really like the mouse as far as size, comfort, buttons work well, etc..... I have one at home and one at work, and find that the accuracy is poor. Meaning, if I try to expand a window, and put the mouse on the corner and get the double-arrows, sometimes I'll just bring up the window that's behind the one I want to expand.... so I see the double arrows, but the mouse is working a few pixels off. The same goes for highlighting text.
Summary: Environment I have had 2 4 button Kensington mice since 1995. I have had 3 Optical elite 4 button since 2001. They all function well using the Mouseworks software. This mouse was purchased for a new Mac Pro 2.93 8-core system to be used in a 3D modeling, graphics environment along with other Macs that have the previous generation Optical Elite Kensington mice. I bought this mouse because I thought the Optical Elite is not available.
