Summary: This was my favorite mouse for a while. It's very accurate and responsive, feels sturdy and fits well in my hand. I especially love the side thumb buttons, the lower and larger of which I turned into my middle click button which works SUPERBLY with web browsers as a tab opener and closer. After I owned it for a little over a year and a half, I started having problems with the left click.
Summary: In order to have 3dsMAX recognize the middle button (scroll wheel), i had to download logitech's propriety software and assign both the left and right scroll buttons to to function as if they were also the middle button. There's some issue going on with the actual middle button registering. In any case, now it works great!
Summary: This is a good mouse. It does what it's supposed to do. My only issue with most things computer these days is that I have developed a fairly severe tremor and often inadvertently bump a button, which is set to activate at way too light a touch in my opinion. Mine should probably be made from cardboard, wooden blocks and big rubber buttons.
Summary: This is a very comfortable and accurate full-size mouse. It tracks perfectly, and is very responsive. The buttons give a nice, solid click. It is shaped very well for right-handed use. The forward/back buttons are ideally placed and easy to use. The scroll wheel tilts to the side, which is useful; and there is a mechanical switch that will toggle it between "free spinning" mode and the more traditional ratchet mode.
Summary: I am going away from wireless for my desktop as my previous wireless kb/mouse combo went wacky on me. This mouse ended up being almost as nice as the more expensive MS mouse I had previously. The contour even fits more naturally, and since I could not live without the 2 side buttons (back/forward for browsing internet, etc.) the price was perfect compared to the next model down (which had neither contour nor side buttons).
Summary: I don't usually spend more than $15 on a mouse but I got tired of replacing them so often so I decided to get a mouse that I thought would last so I dropped the little extra cash. The things I like about this mouse are the weight (not super light like a cheap mouse), the scroll wheel, and the placement of the two extra buttons.
Summary: This mouse is a good choice, and ultimately does what a mouse needs to do. The one issue I have with it, is that the mouse does not feel "solid" when holding it. It almost feels cheap. If I were to buy another mouse, I would probably try Microsoft this time.
Love it, but the hyper scroll is a deal-breaker -- it's cold!

Summary: This is almost the perfect mouse for me. The one feature I cannot stand is the hyper scroll wheel. The feature itself (being able to quickly scroll) is useful, but that means the wheel is made out of metal for weight. During the winter, it gets very cold! Now, maybe I'm just overly sensitive, but it's a weird sensation on the sides of your finger when scrolling, kind of "stinging.
Summary: I like the way the mouse feels in my hand - it rests very comfortable. It seems to work very well in the two weeks that I've had it. The only drawback is the middle scroll button. In Autocad, I have trouble pressing it to pan around - it doesn't work very well. There are ways to work around that, though.
