Summary: I wanted to wait a couple weeks before I reviewed this mouse. I wasn't sure if I could get used to the scroll button, other reviewers said it was to different to get used to. I didn't find it hard at all. took a couple days, but then it was no big deal.. I actually rather liked the button being out of the way. Mouse is on the smaller side so it's great to take with on-the-road. I'd diffidently buy it again.
Summary: I used to have a black version of this. I lost it in a classroom, so I bought this red one. I was curious why it's cheaper than the black one. Now I know. It's doesnt work well with some surfaces like the school table. I have to use a pad all the time. After less than a month, it's not even responding-not even with new batterry. In my trash can it goes.
Summary: Mouse was never sensitive enough, but I thought it was OK to use. That just under a year ago. It finally died and I called Microsoft about the warranty. I never had a mouse die before no matter who the manufacturer was. Microsoft told me that they do not support their mouse and keyboards and I have to go back to where I purchased it from and work it out with them. NO MORE Microsoft hardware for this gal. Same thing happened to my Microsoft keyboard.
Summary: I rated this low because the little swipe pad that takes the place of a wheel was difficult to use. Knowing how much pressure to put on it and judging the distance of a swipe was a challenge for me.
Summary: The touch scroll has this vibrating feedback that simulates a real scroll wheel which is fantastic. It responds great. I tried the Logitech Touch Mouse M600 and it had issues with the scrolling as it would not work most of the time. I highly recommend this especially for this great low price.
Summary: Well made product. Found this mouse large enough in length and width (don't like the tiny laptop models), but much too flat compared to most other mice I've used in the past. It doesn't "fit-in-the-hand." In my view this made it hard to control. Also thought the middle pad that replaces the wheel would allow sideways movements, but it does not appear to do so. Hence, the pad's function is not much different from the wheel.
