Summary: I just love this mouse. My old mouse was jerky at times (because it would often get dirty in and around the ball underneath. I have had this mouse for a little better than 3 months now and it is still as smooth as the day I got it!
Microsoft Intellimouse Optical: The marathon mouse
30 October 2011
Summary: I can't even remember how long I've had it for, but if my Microsoft Intellimouse ever fails, I will replace it with another - There's nothing this mouse lacks and there's no frilly gimmicks either. In addition to the absolute basics we have a scroll wheel doubling as a third mouse button for browsing and reading and two side buttons for whatever you choose (typically for browser backwards and forward buttons) Being symmetrical, it can also cater for right AND left handed...
Pros: Basic but in a good way, long-lasting, very comfortable and functional
Cons: A little more expensive than budget mice, but there's no question it's value for money
