Reviews and Problems with Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer

Great Feel, Bad Buttons!
24 October 2011
Summary: I thought I'd write this review as I've now had two of these mice. The good: The design and feel of the mouse are amazing. For me it's just the rite size and shape to make the mouse extremely comfortable to work with.
Summary: Let me start out by saying this is the most comfortable mouse I've ever used. But as other reviewers have said, the left button gives out after a certain period of time (anywhere from 6 to 18 months). I'm on my third one, and luckily Microsoft has been very nice about issuing free replacements...
Summary: also had a problem with left clicker thanks to the reviewer here i called microsoft and they shipped a replacement Comfort Optical Mouse 3000 with no charge or having to return the mouse. thats customer service!
Summary: I'm on my second Intellimouse, the first one the left click button stopped working after a few months of use, I got a replacement from Microsoft, the second one has the same problem after another few months of use. Stay away from this mouse...poor quality.
Summary: The mouse feels great in my hand, but after 8 months of normal business use, the left-click has pretty much died. If I pound on the button hard enough, it might click 2 out of 5 times. For the amount of money spent on this mouse, I'd have to say that it's not really worth it.
Summary: God, what a piece of garbage this mouse is. First off, it's gigantic and bulky. The "smooth" scroll wheel is a nusiance because most programs scroll in "clicks" anyway so it's impossible to determine how much scroll is one click.
Summary: Like many others, my left click also stopped working after about 10-11 months. I agree with others that this is a great mouse - comfortable, the scroll works really well, the optical tracking is great.
Summary: I miss my 3.0 Where the side buttons used to be easily clickable without moving your hand, the newer 4.0 makes it difficult to click and control the mouse at the same time. This is not a mouse for gamers. Another major problem is the wheel button.
Summary: I've been a happy user of every version of the Intellimouse Explorer since it's introduction. In my opinion Microsoft had a track record of improving design with each iteration and I was eager to see how they would follow up the nearly perfect v3.
Summary: I purchased this mouse at another online store back in February to replace an old intellimouse that was acting up. Upon initial use, i was really loving it...cool design, smooth feel...but now (less than 2 months later) I am having problems left-clicking.
