Summary: A basic mouse, bought a bunch for work to replace failed Dell OEM optical mice. The button travel is fairly long and the click is slightly louder than most mice I've dealt with (but I actually like that). Scroll wheel works well and the cord has ample length to reach to PCs placed under the desk.

Summary: Yes you are smart enough to come across a microsoft mouse. This Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse is indeed black and traces movements. If you need an ordinary mouse look no further. This mouse is the most extraordinarily ordinary mouse I have ever used.
Left/Right click..a Little loud. Wheel, quiet. Good Mouse for price.

Summary: It does have a louder *click* sound than many Mice I've used. The Scroll Wheel is quiet. It does well for normal stuff as well as games. I'm using 1920x1080 resolution and it's doing well with it. It fits in my hand very well, and I have a large to medium hand. Wink!
Summary: If you were buried under rubble, it would make an excellent signaling device to alert rescuers.
Pros: The mouse works just fine. Good tracking, responsive scroll wheel.
Cons: Of the dozens and dozens of mice I have used over the last two decades, this mouse has the absolute loudest clicking sound I have experienced. It is so loud it would be distracting to anyone else in the room with you.
Summary: This mouse is about 4.25" front to back versus 4.88" for my previous MS mice. This difference wouldn't have been a problem if the button panels had extended to the front of the mouse body. As it is, unless you have smaller hands, this mouse could be aggravating.
Pros: It works - but see cons, it was inexpensive, nice looking, got free shipping . . .
Cons: It's too small for larger hands, my button fingers are about about 3 and 3.38" in length. The over all size issue is aggravated by the fact that the primary buttons are "surrounded" (at the front) by the mouse body. (My older mice had the button panels extended to the very front of the mouse.) Th...
Summary: The previous (Dell) mouse I was using on my Windows XP Pro PC would not allow Microsoft's "Intellipoint" software to configure the wheel-click option. Instead, I had gotten got a message that said you must be using a Microsoft brand mouse for this configuration to be applied.
