Size is nice, otherwise a terrible mouse at this price.

Summary: I bought this mouse a while ago to backup a Logitech G9. The G9 finally died after over 4 years and I hooked this mouse up. I was excited to use it as I have a Sidewinder X6 keyboard which I really like (despite its lack of mechanical keys). Here's the good news. The mouse is big and fits bigger hands well. My hands are not huge but they are larger than average and its fits me naturally. I expect smaller hands would be very uncomfortable though.
POOR ergonomics, thumb won't reach the side buttons

Summary: I bought one of these to test before requisitioning some for image editing use at work. I checked it out at a retailer and found its size comfortable so I odered one from Amazon for $25 less than the retail price. I hooked it up at home and started playing Battlefied 2. After a few minutes of real use I discovered that I couldn't reach buttons 4 or 5 on the side of the mouse, and I don't have abnormally short thumbs.
Summary: I have had this mouse for years, it does have nice features... but BE WARNED! Microsoft used a terrible rubber for their scroll wheel and after about a year of gaming, the mouse wheel's rubber turns into a melting sticky semisolid that will fall apart and come off of the wheel if you aren't gentle with it. if you move your finger across the wheel sideways, you will take half of the the rubber off.
Summary: This mouse is amazing, although, I would not recommend it for anyone with small hands due to the large size of this mouse. Software was amazingly easy to install and configuration is very simple. For its size it is very light but comes with weights in case you want it heavier. The mouse wheel is the only thing I have concerns about. It seems sturdy enough except sometimes a small clinging sound comes from it, and it is definately not a sound that is meant to happen.
