Dissappointing Quality/Defective Scroll Wheel

J. R. Counts, Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: I was very excited to order this mouse because it had all the features I wanted: ergonomic shape, wheel with tilt, two side buttons and a cord. Like some other posters, I prefer a wired mouse for day to day work and was frustrated that all the highest rated mice on the web seem to be wireless these...

Mouse with good potential

Khashayar Eghtedari, Amazon
27 October 2009
  • Summary: It is getting harder and harder to find "full fledged" wired optical mice these days. Every mouse company is focused fully on wireless which sounds good at first until you take into account: Charging station (or battery change) and the signal interference.

Buttons stop working after few months!!!

IKL, Amazon
25 October 2005
  • Summary: This mouse feels and works great. However, the buttons break very easily. My right button stopped working within 3months, I called Microsoft and they sent me a new one. After 2months, that right button stopped working again. The buttons still work, but they only work once in a while.

Oh, what a difference another six months make: what was once a Five-Star rating is now a One-Star rating

Virtualmonk, Amazon
2 September 2005
  • Summary: Back on 9/5/05, I wrote a glowing Five-Star review of this mouse after six months of use. Mea culpa. After barely a year's worth of M-F 8-5 usage, it is now headed to the landfill. The switch under the left mouse button started failing a few weeks ago and finally quit altogether this past week.

I bought Microsoft assuming it would be reliable

Peter Yocum, Amazon
24 April 2005
  • Summary: The switch under the normal button (left button) is unreliable, and apparently this is a known problem with late models of the Intellimouse.. serves me for buying a mouse without doing a thorough online check to see if it was a lemon first.

L-button stopped working

D Co, Amazon
12 March 2005
  • Summary: Like another reviewer, the mouse worked fine for about a month, then the L-click button stopped working. Now I have to click on items about seven times before they are recognized.

Choose Another Mouse

S. Gurney, Amazon
10 February 2005
  • Summary: This mouse was absolutely wonderful until the left button stopped working. I now have to smash it before it will 'click' on anything. I thought it was a driver problem. Then I reconfigured it so the right button actually performed the left-click. Sure enough, the right button worked just fine.

Not Reliable!!!

B. Midgette, Amazon
18 January 2005
  • Summary: I upgraded to this mouse from an older wheelmouse optical. I enjoyed the mouse when it worked, but after about 6 months the left button required multiple clicks to register. I thought it might be a software issue and spent time making sure everything was correct.

Destroys laptop pointer

rblaw, Amazon
27 June 2004
  • Summary: I had the older version of this mouse and it worked fine for years. I would have purchased an identical mouse, but could only find this "new and improved" model. It requires version 5.0 of the Intellipoint software.
