Pros: 7 programmable buttons. Get X-Mouse Button Control (PC only) and, with 5 layers of commands, have up to 35 mouse commands for each program on your computer. Makes editing audio in Pro Tools way faster than hunting for keys.
Cons: A very minor advisory, just be patient as the Scroll Wheel Button can be a bit stiff at first.
Summary: I thought the white stripe would be bad-looking, but it's actually dark grey and it has grown on me. Many of you probably don't care. Also the laser does not shine outside of the mouse, so it will provide no distracting illuminations at night.
Pros: + Build quality feels very good. It's just a bunch of plastic and and rubber, but it feels sturdy. It has a modest weight which provides accuracy and control, but still allows one to move it freely using a fingertip grip. Buttons sound and feel nice to press, but the middle mouse button requires ...
Cons: - Button to switch between free-scroll and notched scroll is not programmable. It's just a mechanical button. I guess it's not really a bad thing because it's not an issue with the mouse design itself. I just kinda wish I had something else to press. - Free-scrolling wheel is really expletive wei...
Summary: Does not have all the extra programmable buttons that a gamer might like to have. Those buttons would be in my way. It is lazer, not optical. Lazer is better and I don't need a moude pad. It is also wired. No batteries, just reliable connection to USB 2-3.
Pros: After hours of research this mouse has the right weight, feel, and a scrolling wheel that either free-wheelies or rotates incrementally with the push of the button on top. The mouse uses quality Omron microswitches and the laser is steady and accurate. It is a wired mouse.
Cons: This my 3rd mouse of this style by choice. After 3 years of hard use everyday the first mouse was simply worn out. I hope the 2 remaining mice I have of this type last at least three years.
Summary: I'm a little wary if the rubbery thumb rest will tatter after a while. I've used this mouse for a few months and so far its fine, but I'll be pretty annoyed if it starts getting brittle.
Pros: Very comfortable, decent precision, and the ability to let the scroll wheel loose. Clicking is decently quiet and the buttons are firm enough that I don't accidentally click the buttons just by resting my fingers on them.
Cons: * The forward/back buttons are pretty excessively big in my opinion, and a little "spongy". * The scroll wheel has too much weight to it, where even when the "super fast" mode is off, it can still freely spin a few clicks. * The wheel tilt clicks are too sensitive. I've often found myself trying ...
Summary: I use this mouse for work and I couldn't be happier with it. The design fits my hand perfect and comfortably for prolonged use, and the two side mouse buttons are perfectly accessible by my thumb (I've had other mouses where the side buttons were awkward to reach).
Pros: - It looks great - It feels great - Moves precise and smooth - I love it's solid construction and weight - Mouse wheel works perfectly. It isn't too sensitive or insensitive, and you can lock it for that confirming "click" that I prefer or you can unlock it for a perfectly smooth scroll. Also has...
Cons: I honestly can't think of a con, I love everything about this mouse.
Summary: Sometimes I wonder just how tech savvy I really am - I've had this mouse for over a month, and the scroll wheel was driving me crazy. There was not enough friction to keep the wheel from spinning after I let go of it, and the image on the screen was always shifting up or down...
Pros: Feels great in your hand - could use a bit more weight, but you can beat the performance for this price.
Excerpt: I started using Logitech mice and keyboards several years now because I am so happy with their products. I spend a lot of time on the computer at work, and I have long term problems with my hand, wrist and arm.
