Summary: The mouse itself is ok. Compact, responsive, a tad plasticky but fine in general. However as other reviewers have pointed out, it really isn't very durable. I haven't been particularly abusive to it. It is connected to laptop that generally never goes anywhere, it just sits on the desk. Unfortunately this still seems to have been much for this mouse to handle. The joint where the wire from the mouse connects to the USB plug is an obvious weak point.
Summary: Excellent product for a very cheap price. I have had one before and the only thing to go wrong is the bit where the wire joins the mouse gets loose ( has done this on my previous 2 and had a replacement for one of them). Minor problem is that the wire is very short.
Summary: It does the job and takes up little space. I did want a larger mouse but I have grown used to this little guy. I've been using it for a year now and it is still brand new. Only problem is it has a tendency to stop moving, rarely, and you can see that the cursor on the screen is struggling to move. It is rare though, but it lost a star because of this.
Summary: It's a great little mouse, nice and small and fits in my hand nicely, i've had two of these in the past and they've both been excellent and worked for about a year and a half to two years without a single problem.
