works fine on a Mac

Summary: Wanted a wired mouse that can be used with either hand and is white. This works plug and play on a Mac and is comfortable- note that you have to dial the 'tracking speed' (in system preferences) way down relative to a Mac mouse to get the same response sensitivity. Main downside is that the cord is far too long and a minor downside is that there is no real need for the 'click' sound.
Summary: Basic mouse that does a great job if you like your mice very light with responsive mouse feet. The feet are bow shaped, 1 in front and one at the back which fit most gamers style nicely. Standard cord, mouse wheel seems alright, side grips are a bit slippery.
Pros: Very Light Weight., 2 Bow Shaped Front and Back Mouse Feet., Ambidextrous Design For Left or Right hand.
Summary: You'll criticize me for even writing this review because this mouse is clearly marked 'for business,' but I'm writing this because there's a common perception that a mouse is a mouse and who cares what your application is going to be. The problem I have with the mouse is for gaming.
Summary: for almost any purpose. I use this mouse at work, 8 hours a day, and find it to be far more commfortable than lower profile mice. It is ore precise, and the controls are more positive, than standard mice. Well worth the money.
Summary: I like many features on this mouse. One - that you can use the scroll button to move sideways. Two - that you have a button to magnify the screen. These are two very useful features. I have been using the mouse daily for a few months now and have had no problems with it.
Excerpt: I've had this mouse for quites ome time and it has been performing admirably. The chord is long enough and has never been an issue. The red light is really cool looking as well. The IR system insures much better accuracy and durability when compared to my old ball mouse. For you most basic needs this mouse should be perfectly fine for basic computer users and casual gaming.
Excerpt: This mouse saved my hands. I spend hours and hours a day at work with a mouse in my hand navigating huge spreadsheets and page after page of optical data.....and my crappy "came with the computer" mouse just wasn't cutting it. So, i went to the evil empire WM store and picked up this mouse for....what, $20 or something! And it rocks. First, it's kinda big, which I like, as I have big hands. But my wife has used it too, and doesn't complain.
Excerpt: I love this mouse so much I will definitely buy another one just like it -- when and IF this one ever breaks! I've had this mouse for over five years, and my 18-month-old daughter has drug it around and beat it up -- and yet it still works perfectly. I like that it has the benefits of being optical -- no ball to clean gunk out of -- and yet it does have a cord, so it's more accurate than a wireless mouse.
Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse tracks smoothly and easily

Excerpt: The Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000 works great! It moves smoothly and easily and has a nice feel in your hand. I used to have the old trackball type mouse and moving to an optical mouse has greatly improved my ability to move around the computer screen. It was a very inexpensive (less than $20) upgrade to my computer that I was sorry I did not make sooner. It tracks so well that I do not even need to use a mouse pad, although I have one sitting there for the...
Excerpt: First off, I want to say that I had this mouse for almost a decade, and it has never failed me once.. ok I lied, it did get glitchy on me a few times BUT only for a moment or two. The mouse clicker was worn down so much, it doubled clicked whatever I clicked on a few times, but I fixed that by pushing up the clicker a little higher so it can expand it's lifespan.
