Summary: The remake version of the legendary Microsoft IE 3.0. Still crappy thumb buttons but doesn't matter, you really don't need those two buttons that much. The mouse feet used different material (comparing to wheel mouse optical), and glide very well on mouse pad (you don't need additional 3rd party...
Summary: I've been using this for a few weeks now, this mouse is by no means perfect, but it's great depending on your needs. This mouse only supports upto 400dpi so it may be a problem for some. The Side buttons feel clunky, and not 'firm' enough.
Excerpt: I ordered this mouse online for £22, opened the box and inside was a basic instruction booklet, a cd with the intellimouse drivers on (to fiddle with things like what you want the side buttons to do etc etc), a ps2 adapter and the mouse itself.
Pros: accurate, well priced, well built
Cons: mouse wheel comes lose over time, no dpi function
Summary: When I tried to install the driver, I was told that it would have to uninstall existing software. It didn't say what software it wanted to remove or what would break in the process. My hunch is that Microsoft wanted to remove a rival mouse driver instead of co-existing with it, but I can't be sure.
Summary: having tried out two of the newer black models after using the silver models for years Microsoft has actually ruined it. the scroll wheel is far too loud and clanky...currently seeking out the mx 400 from logitech
Summary: It took me (an experienced computer user of over 50 years) nearly an hour to force this product's software to install. Even then I'm not convinced it's done properly, though the mouse does in fact work (at last). I'd recommend any other manufacturer rather than Microsoft for this type of product.
