Not so good

Good Price Bad Hardware

Jeanne M., Newegg
7 December 2011
  • Summary: Not bad for low use. I bought two of these one for me and one for wife and wife has had hers for about 6 months and it still works. I've had mine for about 3 months and its very glitchy. Tried other mice and they work perfect. So just defect in the one mouse.
  • Pros: Cheap Price, Easy use, glides nice.
  • Cons: Cheap Built, Broke in less then 3 months

Middle button extremely hard to click

Matthew M., Newegg
5 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought two of these mice to replace some old Wheel Mouse Optical 1.1A mice. I'm strongly tempted to buy two more 1.1A mice due to the horribly stiff middle button.
  • Pros: Standard left/right buttons. Additional, configurable button on the left side. Smooth scrolling wheel (good for browsing documents, bad for gaming).
  • Cons: The middle button is extremely hard to press. The force required for pressing the button is far more than normal; this complaint is echoed on the reviews for the "Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000 - Retail" . I typically map the middle to double click, but with the button so hard to press, I w...

Eh :/

Thomas C., Newegg
28 July 2009
  • Summary: I got this at Target, thinking it may be a better alternative than the $40 MX518, but I was wrong. I guess I'll keep it until the MX518 gets here off of Newegg, then I'll return it.
  • Pros: Feels good in your hand as long are you aren't pressing any buttons. Side button is useful for gaming, and the tilt wheel is nice to have. Pretty cheap. Worked out of the box, but the side button doesn't work as a magnifier unless you load the drivers.
  • Cons: This is not a gaming mouse, not at all. The primary buttons are tough to push, which makes everything a pain. The scroll is too sensitive for games, making you change weapons anytime you barely touch it. The feet do not slide very will on my mouse pad (fragmat), it's OK when you get it moving but...

uncomfortable

Jason W., Newegg
10 May 2009
  • Summary: Terrible terrible shape. I can't imagine for whom it would be a Comfort Mouse.
  • Pros: I bought this mouse as it uses the perfect DPI for me (1000 DPI) so I don't have to adjust the speed up in the control panel, losing accuracy.
  • Cons: This is the most uncomfortable mouse I have ever used. My hand feels like it is going to cramp up after a couple minutes. The skinny in the middle shape leaves nowhere for my pinky, except bowed inward under my ring finger. If instead of three fingers on top I just use two, it's slightly more com...

Uncomfortable "comfort" mouse

William G., Newegg
1 March 2009
  • Summary: I bought this mouse to replace my 5 year-old MS Wheel Mouse Optical (scroll wheel was wearing out). The tilt wheel, magnifier button, and "ergonomic" design attracted me. Turns out it's the wrong shape for my large hands AND the scroll wheel is difficult to use.
  • Pros: Magnifier function is cool; relatively inexpensive.
  • Cons: Scroll wheel requires too much force to move; hourglass shape too narrow in middle for large hands.

Not quite

Anonymous, Newegg
6 November 2008
  • Summary: I usually always love Microsoft's keyboards and mice. Not this time.
  • Pros: The four-way scroll and a size button are very nice.
  • Cons: The feel and ergonomics are not what I was expecting. The mouse is big and heavy and way too flat and curved for my hand. I notice this because my click fingers are always crunched at an angle. Despite being an advertised comfort mouse, the basic IntelliPoint mice felt better in my hand. The scro...

Horrible design compared to old Intelli Mouse Optical

Li F., Newegg
28 September 2008
  • Summary: Not recommended unless you want to destroy your wrist.
  • Pros: Cheap, and optical... That's about it
  • Cons: Horrible ergonomics, hand is stressed after only little use. Buttons gets real mushy and hard to click after couple month of use. The Left and Right tilt of the wheel is just plain horrible, it s very mushy and hard to press, and often you'll accidently press middle button when you try to do side...

Not for gaming

Anonymous, Newegg
20 April 2008
  • Summary: I will have to get a different mouse for gaming, but it might be OK for web surfing.
  • Pros: Good feel and shape. Tracking is quick by default. zoom button has good placement.
  • Cons: The scroll wheel being smooth and no segmented makes it useless for gaming if you like to roll through your weapons. the scroll wheel push button is very hard to push down, at first I thought that it didn't have one. The one piece top shell causes you to feel a vibration in your palm when you cli...

Mouse buttons Stick

Glenn C., Newegg
18 April 2008
  • Summary: there are much better mice for the price. Normally Microsoft makes decent mice. this one is horrible.
  • Pros: fells pretty good in your hand, Nice weight
  • Cons: The Buttons are so Cheaply made - they Stick in the Down Position. You must constantly pry (on mine) the Left Flap up. Cheap plastic - no springs
