Summary: i've had 3 of these mice. they only warrantee it for 6 months for a reason. they break-down quickly, but I use my mouse a lot as a heavy gamer. the bindings for the extra buttons are quick and easy. the batteries seem to burn out right at 6 months, so i ordered a pack of the same thing that comes with this, from amazon. great mouse, I just wish it was a bit more durable. I will order another 1, as after you play a pc game with it, you will never want another mouse.
Summary: I bought My Sidewinder through a friend's account two years ago, and it's still going strong. I looked at the Microsoft branded mice when my 2 year old (insert brand here) mouse started acting up due to use, and all the oldest working computer mice I have seen have the Microsoft name on them.

Summary: Used it for 3 years with no issues untill the battery died out and I got A Razer Mamba. Microsoft should make a newer model of this as it was an outstanding peice of machine. Worked on any surface, loong bat life and good design.

Summary: This is a heavy and large mouse and I love this mouse as I have larger hands. My wife, on the other hand, hates it. The switchable DPI is very simple to program and works better than on the Microsoft Habu by Razer. Their are two issues I have had with this mouse, it doesn't seem to work as well on a hard surface gaming mouse pad because of the blue lazier, and the battery is loose in it's housing, causing charging issues.
Summary: I've used Logitech gaming mice, I've use Saitek gaming mice, I've used Razer gaming mice and the result is the same; Microsoft has created the defacto standard for gaming accessories. To start, the mouse is both wired and wireless, offering a hybrid form of charging the onboard battery on-the-fly, without disrupting game play.
