Good design but defective product line

Summary: For some reason, Microsoft business mice (the ones I tested were the Comfort Mouse 3000 and Comfort Mouse 6000, two of them, all in white) are loaded with the wrong firmware. These mice show up as the Comfort Mouse 4500 in Intellipoint as such the mouse wheel has different settings than designed and thus don't work properly. The retail versions (the black ones, though not sure if color matters) work perfectly and quite well.
Summary: There are two problems with this mouse, which are enough to throw it to garbage: 1) the buttons are not easy to press, it takes more effort than most other devices 2) the shape is not ergonomic. I have a large palm, and it gets tired very quickly with this mouse Logitech is the way to go, confirmed...
Summary: Watch out if you buy the mouse 6000. The wheel on my mouse has gotten progressively harder to turn over the year I have been using it. I finally tried cleaning/lubricating the wheel with eyeglass cleaner and BreakFree CLP. It helps for a minute, then it is back to dragging. I believe the wheel is rubbing on something in the housing. The wheel tries to do too much: tilts to side and depresses for clicks.
Summary: There is something quite wrong with the Laser Mouse 6000, the shape is not right, it's kind of shallow. I have to be conscious every time I grab this mouse so that I don't to hit the side buttons. All in all, terrible.
Terrible. Go for the MS Comfort Mouse 3000 instead

Summary: Terrible ergonomics ... thumb button that's too far forward, and a "pinky" button (or thumb for a leftie) that is unusable. NO tilt-scrolling! That's right, no 4-way scroll wheel. It has the same shape as the Comfort Mouse 3000, which I like ... so for $20 or more less, get the Comfort Mouse 3000. Microsoft missed the mark with this loser. Don't even bother with it.
