Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical
18 April 2013
Excerpt: Got here in blazing quickly quantity of time and the massive 4th and 5th mouse buttons makes this mouse a classic. Scrolling seems to be a problem i dont know if this is a problem with vista or just a difficulty with this unique mouse. I've owned a single prior to but it went out on me in 2 years. I checked all the sophisticated intellipoint options on the software but no go.
Excerpt: Very good price tag, excellent looks, five buttons, feels good on my hands, mouse feet glides smoothly. The scrool wheel is rather noisy. I was hoping that I'd get used to it, but right after a whilst, each and every and every scroll click is just annoying. The buttons also contributes to some noise, as they are loose and flap a bit, in contrast to some of Microsoft's other mice.
Excerpt: Comments: It was a fantastic mouse when I bought it about a year ago, but immediately after less than a year of use it is slowly dying. It double clicks and random and it doesnt seem as accurate as it when did. I have older ball style mice that last 5+ yrs and this factor all but gives out a year later. Ill give it the benifit of the doubt and give it a 3 trigger for that year it was almost unstoppable.
Excerpt: Comments: This mouse is incredibly functional, as opposed to my last optical. On the other hand, it is a bit awkward to get utilized to the thumb button(s), which I use often. This is the lightest mouse I've ever applied, so light, I'm beginning to question it's durability. Wish it had been a small more solid.
Summary: I bought this for the 5 button facility but mainly as my Logitech cord free mouse was playing up at 5ft from my computer. I wanted it 5ft away to cut down on radiation effects, and I do notice the difference. However, with this mouse you need to move it 5 inches as opposed to the 2 inches of the Logitech. What this means in practice is you have to move your arm with the Intellimouse, as opposed to just your hand with the cordless Logitech.
Summary: The mouse itself is pretty good, didn't have to configure sensitivity too much and it is very smooth, just be careful not to move it too fast or it will break. By far the most fragile mice i've ever used, but if you're careful with it its well worth a buy.
Excerpt: "...dated against my black components. Microsoft has released a black version of this mouse though so if that’s a problem go check that one out. Another problem with the white colour is that it shows its age, mine now has some stains on it, due to regular use, upwards of 4hrs a day most days. The durability of this mouse is very good, as i have been using it, as mentioned above, daily for long periods of time. Frequent gaming also puts a stress ...
Pros: Light, 5 programmable buttons, durable
Cons: not a gaming mouse, slightly over priced, dated design
Excerpt: "This mouse was not what I expected it to be. My first impressions was how light it was, and, in my opinion, light mouses are really not that good. I initially bought this mouse to play games with online and offline. And because of the weight, the precision of the mouse was not good to previous mouses. This mouse has 5 buttons, which have the capability to 7 actions, it has the good-old left and right click, and the middle scroll which can click ...
Summary: i had an explorer optical and a mousewheel optical for 8 months now. The mice are great, very accurate, and no loss of tracking in hardcore games whatsoever. One is very light and small, while the other is on the heavy side, but better suited for my big hands. however, i am rather unimpressed by the build quality. buttons on both devices are flimsy and rather fragile, but the main issue is with the cable connecting the mouse.
Summary: The mouse is one of the earlier models, for the new optical technology, and technically, it works well in most circumstances. Except don;t be fooled by microsoft, it is not compatible with all surfaces! it doesn't work well on wood, or on carpet, depite the advertisements! More so, the design is dissapointing, and a major downside to the overall make up of the mouse.
