Summary: Keep in mind I use this to play competitive games - I'm in no way "professional" skill level so why would I need a "professional" mouse. This will do the trick and do it well for you.
Pros: Ergonomic Durable (Both of my kids have at various times slammed it down on the table and desks) Long Life Long Battery Life (Purchased November of 2013 - Replaced the batteries three times) Decent weight without a dedicated weight feature.
Cons: None really. If I ever have to buy a new mouse (I'm sure I will at some point - nothing last forever) I'll probably just get this one or another Logitech if there's an updated model.
Excerpt: Been using this mouse for a few years. When I got a new system, wanted to have a second mouse, so I again went to my favorite. The only thing that I had to figure out was that the scroll was reversed on some applications, but did some tweeking and fixed that.
Summary: because of all that i will not buy this mouse again, i think i will go with the Rosewill copy that is cheaper so if it stops functioning, im only out $20
Pros: great mouse, love it, feels good buttons are easy to click, love the scroll wheel, but...
Cons: after extended use i noticed that the left mouse button sometimes now will double click, or not click at all, when i emailed logitech about the issue, they told me to replace the batteries and re sync the mouse, this did not help as it is most obviously a hardware issue, so i was unable to send the mouse back.
Summary: I use middle mouse button almost as much as left mouse for many of the applications that I run. I am now having to click it 2-4 times before it registers even once. For gaming, I can't even use it as it is completely unreliable. VERY annoying. So, if you never use the middle mouse button, I'd recommend this mouse.
Pros: + Long distance - 15+ feet to the couch with no loss of control + Works well on most surfaces (haven't tried glass) + Accurate (doesn't jump all over the place)
Cons: - Middle mouse but is horrible - barely registers - Laser position is on far edge of the mouse, making it sometimes not act as I would expect. (Not a huge problem)
Excerpt: I have 3 of these in my household and only one has shown any problems (a right click malfunction from time to time). That's the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars. Great battery life, functionality and features!!
