Summary: This wireless mouse is much larger than regular wireless ones I have tried. Since I have arthritis and carpal tunnel, my had does not get tired when I'm on the computer. I have one at home and one in my office.
Summary: I rated this a 3 star because when the products works it is great - but this is the second one we brought - it appears to only last about a year. I received the product from the shipper when expected.
Great, precise mouse; some units have scroll wheel issues

Summary: The only thing keeping this product from getting five stars from me is that I, like other reviewers, initially received a mouse with a defective scroll wheel. It had a jumpy, annoying effect on the page being scrolled.
Summary: Have used this mouse for 3 years. A good large size and ergonomic design. Acceptable range and rubber surface is very appealing. Now for the down side receiver is way to big it is interfering with nearest USB port, casing for the receiver is poorly made and easily falls apart(fixed with duct-tape).
Summary: I love the feel of this mouse and its responsiveness. But it is not compatible with Vista or Windows 7! Nowhere in the advertisement dos it tell you that. So while it will work as a very basic mouse in Vista, you cannot program the buttons. That's too bad, because it feels wonderful in my big hands!
Scroll wheel makes this mouse annoyingly worthless

Summary: I have been a professional computer programmer for nearly a decade. I inherited one of these that had been used very little. For the most part it is nice (the form factor and the rubber sides in particular), but I can confirm what others have mentioned regarding the scroll wheel.
Summary: i had one that messed up right away and i endured a wheel that did not control the screen properly for a while.... when i rolled down the screen would go down then up, for example - very annoying. i finally called kensington and they promptly sent another.
Summary: The PilotMouse works very well. It is very comfortable in my hand and responds quickly and cleanly. But it is a large mouse and needs careful placement on my smaller size mouse tray. At first I had trouble with the setup, then I moved the USB plugin from the rear of my desktop computer to the front.
