Best mouse at a great price!

John B., Newegg
5 November 2015
  • Summary: Don't be fooled by the Chinese characters on the bottom of the mouse, it'll still work like a champ on your American computer!
  • Pros: I used a MS Intellimouse Explorer for so long that my hand grew into the ergonomic shape of the mouse, but since my last one died a few years ago, I was never able to find another one for even close to a reasonable price. Finally, I stumbled across the mouse you are looking at now, and let me tel...
  • Cons: The rear thumb button isn't as rigid as previous models, so it's easy to accidentally hit it when you're trying to simply move the mouse. It's easy to avoid by, well, just holding the mouse normally. A minor complaint.

My favorite mouse since 1999

  • Pros: light, accurate, and a respectable number of buttons. The 4.0 has a terrible middle button/scroll wheel with a tilt feature. This one is great

Great Mouse

Brian P., Newegg
5 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my aging Intellimouse Explorer 1.0 which seen a decade of college moves and lan parties. I bought a few more to use on other systems around the house as well. So far it is a drop in replacement, lets hope it lasts another decade.
  • Pros: Comfortable, durable similar to the Intellimouse Explorer 1.0 mouse. Way better than the v4.0 mouse which I burned through one every two years at work.
  • Cons: Discontinued, doesn't come in blue for the wife

The best mouse money can buy- Update

Anonymous, Newegg
20 May 2012
  • Summary: Well, it's been many years since I got this mouse, and I'm starting to run into problems. The mousewheel, for starters, is getting harder and harder to turn every week. It also sticks, so sometimes when I'm playing TF2 it would randomly switch me to the sapper, or the pistol, or the shotgun, etc.
  • Pros: I'm not here to discuss the pros and cons again.
  • Cons: -

The best mouse money can buy. EVER.

Anonymous, Newegg
23 January 2012
  • Summary: This mouse was never intended for gaming, but it is the best for this purpose. It isn't full of frills and marketing schemes. It does the job, throws other mice through a car compactor, and then wins some Counter-Strike games for ya.
  • Pros: Amazing feel. Unbelievably reliable. I have an Intellimouse-E 2 (this and the 2 are alike) and it hasn't failed after 5 years of hard, hard use- in fact, it's still going! Great accuracy. No other mouse comes close. Plastic is solid and doesn't scuff. Ergonomics are amazing- I once went all night...
  • Cons: Sensitivity could be higher, but anything more than 500 DPI is really marketing hype. 490 is the sweet spot- it keeps the price low.

  • Pros: Side buttons are a nice feature for clicking forward and back on web pages. The wheel button is not pretty quiet. The cursor doesn't lose tracking or get jittery (like a person with parkinson's using the mouse).
  • Cons: I can't think of any.

  • Pros: This is the best mouse I have ever owned. I bought it back in 2003. I have used it daily ever since. From Battlefield 1942, to gaming daily now with Battlefield 3, this mouse has not missed a beat. The first layer of grip on the sides of the mouse were worn through a couple years ago, but the mou...
  • Cons: The only complaint I have is that I cannot adjust the scroll rate with the mouse on the fly. With older battlefield games this was not an issue because vehicles had a separate scroll rate than infantry. With BF3, it is a shared scroll rate, requiring a shift on the fly type mouse unless you like ...

Excellent

Christopher W., Newegg
15 August 2011
  • Pros: Over the past 8 or so years, I have had 3 of these mouses. None of them have broken on their own - One broke during a move and my last one got knocked off the table onto the wood floor by the wife. This is an excellent mouse. It has a great response time and is large enough to fit my hand.
  • Cons: None
