worst mousewheel ever
Tyler P., Newegg
7 August 2011
Summary: This would be a fantastic cheap minimalist gaming mouse if it weren't held back by it's equally cheap construction.
Pros: The shape and sensor are top notch. When it comes to performance, I feel that it's on par with much more expensive gaming mice.
Cons: The buttons have a cheap feel to them, the wheel is clunky and loud, and the side buttons have a bizarre feeling to them (they extend very deep into the mouse when pressed). The scroll wheel on this mouse is easily one of the worst I have ever felt. It's shockingly unpleasant to use.
Summary: Probably should have found a local store to get a feel of the mouse before buying it. Shocked at the cost of shipping for returns..
Pros: Lightweight, extra buttons on the side are nice for games.
Cons: Side buttons feel cheap, scroll wheel feels cheap and doesn't roll as smooth as I had hoped. A bit large for my hands as well and somehow in total it cost me more than 40 dollars when shipping and warranty were included. To return it I have to pay more than 9 dollars shipping and only get refunde...
Summary: I used this mouse for years when it fried. So I decided to buy a new one and was disappointed. I have since put the body of the old mouse on the new hard ware. And if feels just like before, but if you don't have the option on doing this I would not recommend this mouse.
Pros: Same parts and body as the old versions of this mouse. Fits well in my hand.
Cons: Rickety, feels cheap and will fall apart in your hand. The scroll wheel was also loud and hard to move at first.
Summary: Ive been useing the Explorer mouse since MS released it, and this one is the worst one. I hope that it will "break in" with more use. Even though this is the last time that I buy an explorer mouse, it will be good to have in case of an emergency.
Pros: Optical, wired, Comfortable to use, 5 buttons and inexpensive.
Cons: The middle mouse button is harder to scroll with than it should be. Page scrolling is rather jumpy. More cheaply made than the past explore mice.
Summary: Got this to replace a previous Microsoft mouse am fairly disappointed am an avid gamer and several reviews have mentioned how good this one is. I found the 4th mouse button quite recessed and flimsy unlike the 5th mouse button which has a 'bump' on it and has a more definite action it has a high...
Summary: Good shape, fast tracking and a good design. Would be perfect if the buttons and scroll wheel didn't feel like something you'd get as a gift out of a kinder egg. I remember a time when even low-end Microsoft mice would feel good in the hand. Those times are gone, evidently.
Summary: I got this to replace my Razer Deathadder which stopped working after about 3 years First impressions are its not as good quality as the Razer The side buttons are really loose on this mouse, I was thinking about sending it back as faulty, but looking at other reviews online a few people have...
