Great mouse, lightweight

Al, Mwave.com
22 June 2009
  • Summary: I own this mouse and I like it much better than cordless mice I used to own. Its a great option for those considering a wired mouse. Ive been using Intellmouse Explorers since version 2.0 and this one is just as good. The 5 buttons are a timesaver for me cant go back to using mice without the thumb buttons.
  • Pros: Much lighter than cordless mice, dont have to worry about buying batteries, 5 buttons on the Intellimouse explorers is useful for backward and forward web browsing, great ergonomics
  • Cons: I dont like the tilt wheel feature very much, not really that useful.

Best mouse for usage, but not long life

R. Garity, Amazon
25 January 2007
  • Summary: I really like this mouse, better than any other, but they wear out after a year to 18 months. Still I will continue to buy them because they work best for me. Not a big investment considering how much I use it.

Great Mouse-Short Life Span

Early Memphis, Amazon
12 December 2005
  • Summary: Feels great, looks great, works great - then you start having to pound your left-click button like you're working out for the finger Olympics. Very strange that Microsoft hasn't been able to fix this - it's not a new problem. Buy it if you want the best - but, buyer beware, it won't last long!

Intellimouse with OSX Panther

M. Crumpton "somegoodbooks", Amazon
23 January 2005
  • Summary: I wanted this mouse because I wanted more buttons and a tilt wheel. The mouse is really solid (if a little larger than I expected), but the software is a little convoluted. I was hoping that the tilt wheel would be good for scrolling sideways, and it does work fine on most applications. Finder yes, Firefox no, Illustrator yes. Itunes yes. The software assigning the keys is quirky.

The Mouse that could

Antony P. Knowles Jr., Amazon
2 September 2004
  • Summary: This is a great mouse for things like excel spreadsheets where you have to move horizontally but for things like games where you use the scroll wheel to change weapons and such this mouse fails. The scroll wheel has no clicking motion to it. The wheel glides smoothly. This causes problems for pc gaming. I still give this mouse four stars b/c it feels and looks great and the tilt wheel is great. Also the customizable buttons on the mouse are cool.

Bluetooth explorer

markays, Ciao
8 November 2004
  • Excerpt: "...I have even contacted Microsoft and the have no intension of releasing one for left handed people. I've got a bluetooth laptop, and the mouse works very well with the in-built bluetooth, so i don't ven need to carry the bluetooth dongle around with m. The dongle that you get with the mouse does work well and works with all of my other bluetooth devices such as my mobile phone (sx1). The dongles alone get a good price on ebay :-). The mouse ...
  • Pros: excellent for laptops with bluetooth built in
  • Cons: 2 month battery life, not for left - handed surfers

An overall good mouse but expensive

Manolis, Ciao
23 September 2003
  • Excerpt: "I used to own the previous version of the wireless intellimouse explorer(non bluetooth version). Its ergonomics and the shape were the reason why I did not look into buying another mouse. It fits perfectly in my hand, and I can say that after using this mouse, it feels really weird using others. Working on the computer all the time, means that one of the hands is almost constantly on the mouse. This mouse has never felt bad on my hand, neither has ...
  • Pros: Fantastic design and long range
  • Cons: High battery consumption, a bit slow after sleep mode .  Expensive too .

Design Attrayant

24 January 2006
  • Excerpt: Parlons de la nouvelle souris nouvelle génération qu'esy l'Intellimouse Explorer. La forme est originale, les couleurs agréables et en plus elle clignote. Les deux boutons latéraux sont vraiment bienvenus. Les possibilités sont si nombreuses que j'ai du mal à choisir la fonction que je souhaite conserver. Le système optique apporte un véritable plus au confort d'utilisation.
  • Pros: Esthétique
  • Cons: un peu grosse
