Reviews and Problems with Microsoft Habu Laser Game Mouse
Showing 1-5 of 5
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.
Summary: I bought a wired mouse because I wanted it to just work. Now two years later the cord is failing. It cuts in and out, and wiggling it affects it. What a waste of money. Not what I expected in a high end gaming mouse. The only reason it gets two stars is because it looks cool, is comfortable, and worked well for over a year.
Summary: I bought this mouse as a replacement for my Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer which I've had for almost 8 years now. It finally developed a short in the cord and cuts out occasionally. Other then that it still works perfectly. Imagine my disappointment when right out of the box I noticed that the bottom button bellow the mouse wheel on the Habu stuck in the down position the very first time it was depressed. Definitely not the quality I was expecting.
Summary: This mouse is disappointing, I find it very uncomfortable to play with it due to the shape. I've had multiple of problems with it during games especially since it's suppose to be a gaming mouse. The left button sometimes get stuck enabling it to continue firing, and the right button sometimes doesn't register so I can't jump.
Summary: I'm sad to have to agree with the people who had bad experiences with this mouse. I think the problem is not with Microsoft, but with Razer technology. This mouse is perfect for gaming. Gives you very precise aiming, smooth movements and many options for configuring the hardware. It feels very good in your hand and even the clicking action is great. BUT...it just does not work well all the time. Everything seems to work fine for some weeks.
