works great except...

Stan, Staples
23 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I can't recommend this mouse because the scroll button is ridiculous. It zooms all the way to the bottom when you want to go down and all the way to the top when you want to go up. There is no way to correct this on the software provided. If you want to see something other than the very top and very bottom, you must click and drag the scroll bar. What a pain!!
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly
  • Cons: Inaccurate Tracking

No ON/OFF Button

PT, Staples
9 August 2012
  • Excerpt: I returned this product to Staples. The only way to turn it off is to remove drive from the USB port, or to remove the batteries from the mouse itself. Neither is good for me. However, this may be a good mouse for someone else. Just wanted folks to be aware there is no on/off button which is not indicated on the packaging.
  • Pros: Maybe good for some users
  • Cons: No onoff button

  • Pros: Glides Smoothly, Works On Any Surface
  • Cons: Catches Easily, Inaccurate Tracking, Slow Response, Uncomfortable Design

Large and uncomfortable

DR, Staples
18 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Pros: -multiple buttons and 4-way scrolling are great. -smooth and accurate tracking. -works on a wide range of surfaces. Cons: -no on/off switch (see explanation below) -large/bulky design -inaccurate clicking (see below) -inconvenient layout -heavy I found this mouse to be quite bulky and uncomfortable. It is really too large to slip into a laptop bag. It is a little awkward to use as it somehow just doesn't fit right in my hand.
  • Pros: Accurate Tracking, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Works On Any Surface
  • Cons: Poor Battery Life, Uncomfortable Design

Did love this mouse...

AlexTheDesigner, Staples
3 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Well i did love this mouse. The battery life isn't 6+ months like said but my main gripe is that the center-click mouse wheel button is already going bad. I have had the mouse for about 8 months now and the center button stopped working unless i apply more pressure than usual. The button has been catching on something inside and clicking oddly. Very annoying because i am CAD designer and constantly use that button.
  • Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Great Features, Works On Any Surface
  • Cons: Low build quality
