Excerpt: We bought this replacement mouse with the understanding by the description that the mouse was Plug and Play USB ready but, also came with a PS/2 adapter. (Which was the ONLY reason we ordered this particular item!
Excerpt: My old mouse had the ball inside it and it was more accurate in some cases than the Logitech. For instance, I play daily jigsaw puzzle and this mouse does not release puzzle pieces spontaneously, sometimes requiring 2 or or pickups and releases. Otherwise OK.
Summary: I bought this mouse hoping for a replacement for my ailing Logitech mouse. It was cheap enough that if I didn't like it I wasn't losing too much. I took it out of the box, realized it was too light, put it back in the box, and threw it away.
Pros: It's an ambidexterous 3-button USB mouse.
Cons: It is far too light. The cord can push the mouse around.
Summary: The microsoft model at this price point ($10) holds up very well. Our company bought 10 packs of each within a few months of each other so we were able to see the results of wear side by side.
Pros: Shape, function, and looks were all very well liked by our users. It is a notch above the very low end budget brand mice and would hold up very well for normal home use.
Cons: Will not hold up to business use. 40 hours per week use after about 4-5 months of had it creaking and the finish worn off. This was especially true for our female users who utilize more hand lotion in the office.
