Summary: I'm not sure if this particular mouse is still being manufactured but I think it's a great mouse. I had another one that I wore out...it took several years of heavy use but it finally gave up the ghost. I was very happy to find another one...and at a bargain price so low that it felt like a gift. If you are looking for a very good mouse that offers lots of options; one that works well on all kinds of surfaces..
Summary: Beware the glue idiots. This company does not test it's products for longevity whatsoever and 3 years after owning this mouse the soft rubber 'side panel inlays' are coming off all by themselves and the 'glue' that 'held' them in place is decomposing on it's own and becoming a sticky unusable gooey mess that renders the mouse useless, gets all over you, gets all over the mouse pad and is unbelievably annoying. To Kensington: Idiots, Test your products.
Summary: I've been using the 72127 Kensington PilotMouse with my desktop for over 3 years now and like it so much that I bought 3 more recently for my 2 disc jockey laptops and my wife's desktop. I had a wireless mouse on my laptop but got tired of dealing with batteries and the "feel" of the mouse - they are overrated. You can't easily find a high quality, wired optical mouse anymore so get one of these while you can.
Summary: This is my first wireless mouse, so I don't have much to compare it to, but I'm a bit disappointed. I bought it on eBay to use at work, where my desk configuration is not amenable to a wired mouse. I've only been using it about a month now, so I haven't experienced a battery change yet, but I fully agree with the other complaints mentioned here. The "sleep" mode is activated frequently (less than a minute of no use?
Summary: And I can't say it's been a glitch free three years but it's not that bad of a mouse. Once I figured out what the lights on the base station meant (is it charging when that light blinks or what????) and downloaded the MouseWorks software to fine tune things it has been a pretty decent mouse. I love the scroll pad waaaaaaaay more than the clickity-ratchety feeling scroll wheels on most every other mouse.
Summary: This is the best mouse i've ever used.. not tiny n small causing ur hands to cramp.. easy to use n my first one lasted way longer than any other mouse ive ever had.. no battery to run down either.. wired is great as well.
looks nice, feels nice, but doesn't work well. bad mouse. lots of lag & poor precision.

Summary: the biggest problem is its horribly laggy and incredibly imprecise. no problem on install, though took a couple of tries to get it to pick up the wireless signal -- been fine since then. if you're using it for moving big stuff around on the screen or clicking in a general area, you're fine. but to position the cursor right where you want it, you'll never ever be able to do it with this mouse.
