Good interim mouse!

RL_Aviation, B&H Photo
7 May 2015
  • Excerpt: Small in size and louder than a more expensive mouse. Would be a great travel mouse! I will keep this for travel and buy a larger mouse in the near future.

Decent no frills mouse, cheap price.

UX12, Amazon
25 April 2015
  • 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.

Yes you are smart enough to come across a microsoft mouse

  • 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!

These Microsoft mice squeak when clicking. Usually Microsoft mice do what are suppose to, but better than others. Not this time

  • Summary: Usually Microsoft mice just work and work well. These are not that great. I have one where I hear plastic squeaks when I press on the mouse buttons. Not that great.

Not bad. loud mouse clicks

John W., Newegg
18 September 2013
  • 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.

Works but . . .

David S., Newegg
11 May 2013
  • 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...

This Microsoft optical wheel mouse model.

Zack S. Mitchell, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • 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.
