Tracks and scrolls well, a little noisy, but good value for the money

Summary: Tracks and scrolls well. I've gone through a few Logitech mice and they all have fine resolution tracking issues or the scroll wheel is jittery [yes, I've gone through the myriad debug steps and add-ons - don't feel they are worth it]. The selection buttons definitely make a louder sound. In certain environments, that could pose issues. Good buy for the money.
Summary: This mouse is very good value. Reasons for buying, 1.inexpensive, 2. optical, no cleaning necessary. 3. only has what is really necessary, 2 buttons and mouse wheel. 4. Durable, I have used these for years and they all still work. Its not a gaming mouse but it does just fine in the role. Its short on features but that is the tradeoff for low price and simplicity. Recommended for most users.
Summary: Light and smaller than its parent or the older Basic Mouse. A bit plastiky and has a loud click which can irritate people sitting next to me. Have two of these now. I trust Microsoft mice and have had several over the years, nearly all proved to be good and durable. This may prove to be as good. Wait and see..
