Summary: I've had the Habu for well over 2 years now, and I still use it daily. Here are some POSITIVES: Nice DPI options with easily accessed DPI buttons behind the scroll wheel. I play a wide variety of game types and still find myself only using 800 and 1600 DPI, so for most people I wouldn't worry about the lack of DPI options over 2000.
Summary: This mouse is nice. I bought a light up mouse and keyboard because I found myself having trouble using the keyboard with the lights off. I also use it for gaming and its nice to have the sensitivity buttons sometimes in BF3 when you get in a tank you will need to bump up the sensitivity and it helps. I had trouble with the drivers though everytime I start up the computer I need to unplug the mouse and plug it back in for it to work.
Summary: ive owned my fare share of computer mice in my time and over the years ive had some that are good and some that just right down sucks. this mouse though is awesome its an replacement to my logitech g5 which got killed by lightning :/ now in the past ive owned razor mice and they do have good products. but i replaced my razor diamond back for something that was a bit different and had better speed adjustment for when im working in photoshop.
Yeah I know its M$, but it REALLY is a great mouse!

Summary: I was originally using a Logitech Trackman Wheel, and it was doing its job: moving the pointer. Then I got to the point where I needed to get a mouse, because the trackball was not cutting it. I was leery at first about shelling out $45 for a mouse, but when I got the mouse I was glad I did. I does feel like, or I should say it has the same shape as the old M$ intellimouse optical, only a wee bit bigger but still within acceptable limits.
Summary: I have been using this for almost 2 years now. It fits great in my medium sized hands. The weight is perfect for long use. I unplug it from pc and take it to work almost every day. Con : I get annoyed by other mouse now since i started using this mouse Update, i had to fix the cable by cutting it, but that's no problem because it was under heavy use. The right-click button stopped with the clicking sounds and doesn't work so great anymore.
Promising product marred by flaws and poor quality.

Summary: I picked up this mouse about 18 months ago for $45 after my elderly Microsoft IntelliMouse (old ball type) finally gave up the ghost. I respected the build quality of MS peripherals (I've had a few of their keyboards, mice and even a joystick or two) and have always been able to run their stuff hard and put it away wet and still get years of use out of them. This mouse does not hold up to that legacy in any way.
Difficult installation and questionable ergonomics

Summary: I bought this mouse to replace a Logitech G500. I chose it primarily because it was less than half the cost and I'm tired of shelling out 80-160 dollars a year for new gaming mice when I wear through them. Though I haven't been using this mouse long I have had some issues with it. Firstly, the drivers that came on the disk were non functional in Windows 7 64bit(the mouse wouldn't work when computer woke up from sleep, then not after restart).
