ergonomically works well, doesn't wear well

Summary: positives: For someone with fairly large hands, fits hand fine, less wrist strain than other mice I've used due to not having to twist arm inward as most mice require. I have three of these, one is actually the 7000 that came with the wireless desktop, physically the same mouse, so I love the...
Summary: It will take some getting used to this mouse; but time will tell if it becomes my favorite or not. This is a big mouse, so if you have a cramped area, you may need to adjust the tracking. The programmable buttons for your thumb are a little awkward to hit, but it may just take practice.
Summary: One of the biggest improvements I've when it comes to hand and wrist pain came from my Microsoft 4000 Ergonomic Keyboard. As such, I figured "well, if they can do the keyboard so well, why not the mouse?" I'd been struggling with a Logitech mouse for a while, so this one seemed like a good try.
Summary: The mouse wheel on this thing is very annoying. It's hard to press and when you do press it you have to be pressing directly into the mouse, which with the curve of the mouse involves pressing it in a VERY certain diagonal angle.
Pros: Good signal, no Lag or slow response
Cons: The whole shape and size of this thing is very strange Overall I really dislike the mouse wheel, and I mean all aspects of the mouse wheel.
Summary: I am actually pretty disappointed by this mouse. I suffer from mild carpal tunnel in my wrist and tendinitis in my elbow and was looking for a mouse I could use on my HTPC when I needed it.
Pros: Have not really been satisfied with this, but decided to keep it because I was too lazy to return it.
Cons: -Bad range (10 ft before it deteiorates) -At large ranges looses connection regularly due to interference and need to get up and reset connection manually. -High base makes it heavy and actually non natural.
Pros: Smooth operation. No fuss to setup. Glides on desktop surface very well.
Cons: Poor thumb button placement. You have to stretch your thumb to reach them. I have been using a trackball for a long time. The mouse I was using for my work PCs was starting to cause my arm/wrist/hand to hurt so I purchased this mouse as a potential ergonomic replacement. I was not able to find a ...
Summary: I bought this mouse when it was one of the daily deals (I believe it was around $30) and it was worth that, but I wouldn't recommend this product at full price. Additionally, I have no particular issues with the brand.
Pros: This is absolutely the most comfortable mouse I've ever used. Even better, perhaps, is that since it's a laser mouse, it works on virtually any surface (excluding reflective surfaces, of course). I never knew how badly I wanted to just be able to use the arm of my couch as a mouse pad, but that's...
Cons: The thing is extremely inaccurate and cumbersome. This doesn't sound like a big deal if you're not the type to do a lot of artistic design or gaming (or if you have a tablet for one, and a controller for the other, for example). The accuracy issues become very relevant when it comes to highlighti...
Summary: I have large hands, my palm measures 5" diagonally, overall hand is 8 1/2" and this mouse is still too small for me, albeit the best fit I have found. I work in the engineering field and use this for CAD and general office work, it works fine for that.
Pros: It is by far the biggest (tallest) mouse I have owned. The quality is good and it seems to function ok
Cons: As stated by others; It is not a gaming mouse. Hard to believe, but the free spinning wheel IS a big issue in FPS games. Additionally, it seems to function a bit choppy in the games I play. Also there does seem to be a glitch with the wireless connection. I have the receiver right next to the mou...
