Nice mouse except......

Summary: I'm replacing my Microsoft USB mouse. This mouse seems to work better than my older mouse. I'm thinking about adding a Velcro strip on each side to help me grip better.
Pros: 1. Works great 2. Connect easily to my OS X Mountain Lion on a 2011 Macbook Pro 3. Good size not to small 4. Tracks good no problems 5. Scrolls well. 6. Price is good 7. Good Weight
Cons: Only one con and for me it's a bad con. The sides of the mouse are very smooth. I have a problem with gripping this mouse. If it had a small rubber pad on each side of the mouse this mouse would be perfect.
Summary: This is the second one we have bought as we liked the first one alot. Two laptops so two of these. Note - this mouse is small. If you have big hands and do alot of click and dragging, this may not be a comfortable mouse to use for extended periods of time.
Pros: Works like a regular mouse. Easy on batteries. Doesn't need much desk space.
Cons: The energy saving feature is a little annoying but I knew that going in.
Summary: I got this to replace an older non-Bluetooth Logitech wireless laser mouse with a very similar feature set. This mouse seems to be pickier about the surface and is a different color / shape, other than that I continue to be a fan of Logitech's products.
Pros: Wireless without a little dongle sticking out. Decent range, low-ish latency for a cordless mouse, precise tracking. Not a lot of skipping. Pairing is a simple one-button operation.
Cons: Sensor positioning is a little awkward, I'm more used to mouse sensors being in the physical center rather than off to the side like this. Doesn't track well on dark-colored fabric surfaces.
Summary: They represent that this is a simple 3 button mouse. I installed the Logitech software hoping to find a way to adjust or shut off the power saving tech. What I found is that the wheel can act as 3 buttons through some simple setting changes.
Pros: Works. I just turned it on, pressed the connect button and Win 7 found it and installed it. Can't be much easier than that.
Cons: As mentioned by others there is some jumping of the mouse cursor when you let this thing sit for a few seconds. It seems to be a hardware power savings thing. And though it is annoying it is hardly a deal breaker. It catches up really quickly. If you are constantly using it there is no jump. So I...
Summary: If your pointer jumps around wildly check the surface you're using it on and make sure no foreign materials are interfering with the reader. Rechargeable batteries put out less power output than non-rechargeable.
Pros: Decent travel mouse and bluetooth. Works great. Tracks well. No problems with gaming other than adjusting myself for the smaller mouse compared to my desktop mice. Even works using the couch cushions as a pad.
Cons: Don't like it as much as my old G7 or my G700 on my desktop but hey it was purchased for the laptop. Haven't found a solid surface this mouse "won't" track on yet.
Summary: This is an excellent bluetooth mouse. As I mentioned in my cons, the lag is about the only problem. The feedback is slower than a wired or non-bluetooth wireless mouse, but once you get used to the lag it isn't a huge problem. I'm super picky about my keyboards & mice.
Pros: - Comfortable - Small - Easy to clean
Cons: - Bluetooth or mouse lag takes a bit of time to get used to. - Can't be more than a yard/meter away from the bluetooth host without lots of lag. - Costly (for a mouse)
