Offset laser is bad for gaming
2 weeks ago
Summary: The m705 and m510 has an offset laser which is horrible for gaming! Tracking is off if you're a person who uses their wrist for a pivot point. When you move left, the pointer will move left+down. Moving right will cause the pointer to move right+up. Its a nightmare to play first person games. I have both of these mice and replaced my m510 because I thought the laser was defective. Then I find out the same thing was happening with my m705.
Summary: After using for a year, I discovered it has sensitivity issue with signal. Can not jump browser anymore. Will still try to solve this but the whole school whom were given this mice had stopped using it on our brand new Window 7 PC.
Summary: I bought this mouse and used for 1 week so far. Everything is very good and almost perfect to me, and I am even surprised when discovered the 8th hidden button (default apps switching button hidden below forward/backward hotkeys). This mouse, however has a flaw that is quite deadly. And that's the main reason it scored 3 stars at last, even with a lot perks. The sensor is located at the border of the mouse.
Summary: I've had this mouse with the keyboard combo for around 2 years now, at first it was great, i was really happy with the product and it didn't disappoint me, however after a while it begins to show signs of mouse lag even when moving the receiver closer to the mouse (extension cord + sticky taped under the table) and replaced with brand new batteries. I would recommend this mouse for a average user.
Summary: The mouse is great while its new. After a few months of heavy usage (photoshop, after effects, final cut) its buttons start to double click when I only want it to click once. I had my first one for about a year and a half, then it started to double click like crazy. Now I'm on my 2nd one, about 5 months into it, and it starts to show early symptoms of its predecessor's defect.
Excerpt: I recently replaced my optical gaming mouse with this M705 wireless. It is my first wireless, and I am generally impressed with its capabilities. It fits fairly snug around the hand, though I wouldn't have minded a slightly larger mouse. However, if it was larger, i'm sure that many people would have complained that it would be too big to bring around. This one is of very light heft.
Summary: I would like to reiterate most of what I saw on here... it is a great mouse... once you get the software installed. I found the download only option prefereable - who needs a disk that you will use... well... once. That being said, the link provided did not work. When I did a search in the support area - it showed no results. I played for a while and finally found it... but really, why not work in the first place?!?
Summary: Very good mouse, switches seamlessly from scroll to 'infinite' scroll. However, the middle button does not respond well at all time, to remedy this I switched the middle mouse function to the thumb button. Other buttons work seamlessly with other applications. However, when clicking and dragging at higher speeds (I have the speed set to highest due to gaming), it does not drag well or at all. The software included witht he mouse is great, ease of use is easy.
Summary: - The laser scan positioned at right does have an impact in handling the pointer in the screen. But I think I got used to it. - Its ergonomics is poor. The ring finger gets uncomfortably between the mouse and the mousepad. The thumb buttons aren't well placed for me. - The click sound is loud and a bit annoying. - The middle button in the wheel is imprecise, because you might turn the wheel when you click it. It should stay behind the wheel, like older models.
