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.
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.
Summary: I am going back to Logitech, G500 probably. Why? Well I burn up my mice playing PC Games, FPS in particular, so the mouse is important to me. The logitech are tough, durable and precise. I took a chance on the Habu thinking with who developed it maybe it will be good. First impression of the Habu was that the software sucks. But no reason to beat a dead horse on that one. But I did think it felt nice and played very nicely after everything was up and working.
Summary: I bought the Microsoft Habu mouse to replace a malfunctioning Logitech G5 which decided to spontaneously turn itself off at random moments. Ergonomically, it's a solid, comfortable mouse to rest your hand on and particularly visually striking with a neon-blue light pipe running around the edge and also the wheel (this can be disabled if needed).
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.
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.
