Summary: After about 1 year my mouse stopped working. It developed the most annoying habit of double clicking when I single clicked. I tweaked my mouse settings and there was nothing I could do to get my mouse to stop double clicking. Of course it only did it 25% of the time so I kept using it for a few weeks but eventually I started to lose my mind and threw it away.
Summary: First things first. I have had this specific mouse for the longest time and I must say, it is practically indestructible. I have dropped, smashed, yanked and clicked millions and millions of times on this mouse and has still not failed me. This thing has suffered many many years of harsh gaming and treatment yet mine still works flawlessly! I bought two more once I found out they were discontinued. It may be something basic but well worth the $15.00. You can't kill it!
Summary: long cable, can have it far from keyboard. good size and shape, fits nicely in my large-ish hands. blue light is a bit bright, at night, lights up the whole room. buttons click and respond well. no edges or corners to make alcohol wiping a pain.
Summary: I'll admit it - I care WAY more about good looks than functionality. I know I shouldn't, but I can't help it so whatever. The great thing about this mouse is that it has both - it's an eye catcher and it's solid. I've thrown it in my back pack with a bunch of other crap and it's taken a beating - and still working (and looking) great!
Summary: What makes a good mouse is a pretty personal set of criteria. For me, this mouse has two fatal flaws. I tend to grip my mouse as if my hand was a claw, meaning that I use the tip of my thumb on one side and pinky on the other, and click with my index and middle fingers. With this mouse, however, the claw approach doesnt work. For one, the sides of it are too slick, which makes gripping it difficult.
Summary: This mouse works fine for me. Like the size, like the click action... love the right click feature since I haven't had that with a one button mac mouse. The only small negative thing is it's a bit sensitive when I'm using my left hand to do some shortcuts (tabbing through apps). That's the only complaint though. It's great otherwise.
Summary: Amazon's delivery was great: I got the mouse within 24 hours. Coincidence or not that it came from a nearby "Amazon Return Center." Mouse worked poorly or not at all. The optical reader would not work on a basic black desk blotter (on which all other optical mice have worked fine). It worked sporadically on the wood desk surface. The mouse was probably defective and returned before Amazon shipped it out to me.
