Summary: This MS mouse is being used on Mac OS X 10.4. It works very well, except that the right side extra button gets in your way, and the Magnify feature is annoying. Oddly, it seems that the left side extra button is not so crippled. It has a sweet scroll wheel that feels luxurious, and tilts left and right for side to side scrolling. (Try this on Cover Flow in iTunes or Mac OS Leapord 10.5!
Summary: Fantastic mouse. The track wheel is so smooth and I like the magnifier (it comes in very handy at work). You can program the buttons to do many things, but I like that I can use one as a "back" button for my web browser. Good value, too.
Summary: Have had this mouse for a bout 1.5 years and it works great. Mainly use it for gaming. Battery life is really good. Can usually go at least 6 months without replacing batteries. One of the drawbacks is the software. I uninstalled it. The magnafier just got in the way when playing games. You are supposed to be able to disable that function with the software, but it never did. you don't need to install anything to use it.
Summary: This mouse have cool options. You can zoom in with the extra button on the right, and go back with the extra button on the left. The signal is excellent, and the scrolling wheel is smooth. This mouse is worth the price.
Summary: This mouse is very ergonomic. The amount of adjustments and customizations are superb. The scroll wheel takes a fair amount of getting used to, and the zoom feature can be annoying at times, as it is easy to accidentally hit the button. Otherwise it is a decent mouse.
Summary: Bought this for my husband for Christmas and he loves it. Item has a special feature that allows you to select an area and zoom in on it. Plus he likes being able to put it wherever he wants. Was a little pricey but worth it. My husband is a gamer and this works well for his uses.
