Summary: First off, writing a review for a discontinued product is a little silly, but these are still available through other channels (auction sites, smaller computer supply shops, etc) so I thought adding an additional positive review might help to steer someone in the right direction.
Summary: I am on my second one of these mice. The first one started periodically momentarily (<1 sec) disconnecting after I believe about three years of fairly heavy use. I am relatively certain the problem is from a loose connection inside as I can trigger it by vigorous movement.

Summary: This mouse was actually purchased as a gift for a good friend who's huge into gaming and was yapping about this mouse for ages. So I bought it. Although it was intended as a gift, I HAD to check what it was all about. So, I used it... ...and I might just have to get one for myself.
Summary: It's a nice mouse but if you are planing on using it for online gaming be sure the game doesn't have something like game guard that prevents you from using macros. Before I bought this mouse I was unaware that the macro buttons wouldn't work in my online game until I actually tried using them in the...
