An underwhelming mouse

David S., Newegg
26 April 2013
  • Pros: It had the number of buttons I was seeking for gaming purposes. Newegg was excellent and prompt in their delivery and in their provision of product specs. As always, Newegg was awesome.
  • Cons: It broke in the first year, near the end - by 'broke' I specifically mean some of the buttons were firing off double, triple, and quadruple click signals on a single press. This complicated computer usage greatly. Also, my wrist felt awkward using it and was prone to feeling uncomfortable. I neve...

Expired Product

German F., Newegg
8 March 2010
  • Pros: Nice layout, bought it specifically for the feel of a classic MS mouse.
  • Cons: Died after 2 years. Called Microsoft (Their products come with a 3 year warranty) told me this product's warranty has expired in 2004. I bought the mouse in 2008....

Frustrating in many ways

Tony S., Newegg
13 January 2010
  • Pros: It's a mouse, and it works as described.
  • Cons: The two side buttons are obnoxiously placed. While browsing the internet, it's very, very easy to accidentally hit one of them, sending you back or forward a page, just based on the way I (and I assume others) generally hold mice. I've had side buttons on mice before, but these are positioned in ...

Not a good Performer

GregJ O., Newegg
14 September 2009
  • Pros: Good shape, nice software
  • Cons: Not accurate, very jittery the mouse cursor moves by itself when I'm not moving it, also sometimes moves during gaming, It's very annoying. This mouse is not worth the $70 I paid for.

Feels very cheap

William M., Newegg
31 December 2008
  • Summary: Should have sprung for a $40 Logitech instead. This is barely better than the Apple Mighty Mouse it is replacing. (Mighty Mouse feels well-made but has a worthless design, while the Intellimouse at least has a sane button layout.)
  • Pros: Has some extra buttons that aren't positioned completely stupidly.
  • Cons: I have rarely used a mouse that felt cheaper. It is very light, none of the buttons have a very nice click (the side ones especially feel cheap and are very easy to click by accident) and the scroll wheel is loud and loose. Everything about it feels flimsy.

Poor build quality

Graham Hansel, Amazon
30 December 2002
  • Summary: I became so irritated with this mouse that I replaced it. If the mouse is squeezed at the sides, the plastic creaks, which was the final straw for me. The mouse looks cheaper than its price, and its design is mediocre.

Not easy to pick up

Martin, Amazon
30 December 2002
  • Summary: Works OK-ish as a mouse. My problem is that I just don't move the mouse about. I like to pick it up. I use thumb and little finger to do this. (Middle three fingers on the three buttons) But this mouse has a convex cross-section so there is nothing to get hold of and hence I find it almost...
