Excellent Mouse, works great

Giscard Gomperts, Amazon
1 October 2010
  • 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.

Frustrating double-click issue

Rowland G. Rose III, Amazon
16 November 2009
  • Summary: Edit: Great support from Microsoft! They offered to replace my Habu mouse with the Sidewinder X5, or give the money back. I took the money back, but I might get the Sidewinder X5 anyway because it's reviewed pretty well and has the DPI switching I love. Thanks Microsoft! Here is the review I made before: There is one issue with this mouse that trumps all the other cool stuff about it: Accidental double-clicks.

Great until it breaks

L. R. Fisher, Amazon
23 November 2008
  • Summary: I've owned this mouse for just over a year, and I've really enjoyed it. After using a wireless mouse for a full day, my wrist would be sore so I wanted a lighter wired mouse. This mouse is light, accurate, and feels great in my hand. However, it has recently started to double or triple-click occasionally when I only single-click. I just replaced it with a different mouse. It should not have failed after one year of use. As for the firmware update.

Good mouse, terrible software

I. Gulko, Amazon
6 December 2006
  • Summary: This mouse feels very good in my hand. I have slightly smaller than average hands, but it seems like it would fit a bigger hand just as well. I have been trying a lot of different mice, and this is the first mouse ever where I can comfortably press the side buttons with my thumb without shifting my hand. The alternate side buttons are a great idea. This mouse combines the best of both worlds for me.

Bad for low sensitivity

Mr. DO EVANS, Amazon
2 April 2009
  • Summary: If you are a low sensitivity gamer do not buy this mouse, when you move the mouse too fast it doesn't register and stops. This is not a problem with my new mouse MX518 which is very responsive, If you are a high sensitivity gamer then this mouse will be fine for you, just not for me.!

Mixed results

Davie, Amazon
21 February 2009
  • Summary: This mouse worked well for about 4 months then the screen freezes and connection problems began to start! First of all I thought it was a problem with the port on the PC but as it got worse its obviously the mouse. Very dissaponted as Razer is highly acclaimed and with Microsoft adding their quality to the product I thought this would be brilliant. After all the problems with wireless I have had in the past I thought a wired mouse would pawn.

Great mouse, terrible software

Bagsabbis (aka Simon), Amazon
26 April 2007
  • Summary: I'm glad to see that the previous reviewer has had nothing but positive experiences with the Microsoft Habu. However, many (including myself) have different stories to tell. Firstly, I have to say that the feel, design, and performance of the mouse (when it works as it is supposed to) is fantastic. I would not hesitate to give 5 stars on the basis of the good times. However, I and many others have suffered from problems with the software.
