Summary: I have intellipoint in my startup menu under "configsys" maybe that is why it works so well. (Just Guessing)
Pros: Works great with windows 7 (32bit) No Issues at all of any kind. I like the feel in my hand (I have a big hand) and the scrolling is top notch. Very precise, accurate and silky smooth
Cons: Maybe the 2 buttons on the left hand side could be positioned just a hair more forward and the length could be a 1/2in longer to accomodate my big hand. Why don't mouse manufacturers offer their mouses in 2 or 3 different sizes. Maybe come out with a "Special Edition" model just to see how it sel...
Summary: I finally called Microsoft to complain and they immediately sent me a replacement. The new one does exactly the same thing. So for now, the mouse stays plugged in to a USB 1 jack.
Pros: Good feel in my hand, I like the smooth scroll wheel without a click. Works equally with Mac and PC.
Cons: Sporadic freezes. Each freeze lasting about 3 seconds. It started where it would just happen once a day, but it is up to 3 or 4 times an hour. I found a Microsoft forum that said it would work better in USB 1.0 so I found an old hub and it did improve things substantially. Freezes are down to les...
Pros: I have been using Microsoft wireless mice for years and have been happy with them all. Great configuration options as well as performance.
Cons: Up until Intellipoint 6 I've never had a problem with the software. Using 7.1 with this one and had an erratic cursor problem which two tech support guys at Microsoft thought was a defective mouse. Have to give them credit in that they sent me new ones right away. The problem was (finally figured...
Summary: One user noted that she can't use the scroll button in Warcraft but I have been able to so I'm not sure what the problem might be there. It does take some time to get used to the quick scroll speed as it can scroll extremely fast. (You can slow this down through the installed software.)
Pros: I've had this mouse for about 3 years and I love it. Just recently the laser went out so I'm buying a new one through newegg but up until that point I've never had any problems with it. The batteries usually do last about 6+ months and I'm on the computer all the time (12-16 hours a day between w...
Cons: None that I've found. I use it for work, gaming, and browsing and it performs very well in all aspects.
Summary: Again, great for precision work. The wheel is just so smooth it's a dream to use. Perfect hand fit and feel. I definitely recommend it.
Pros: It's comfortable on the hands. The weight of it makes it feel very substantial and stable. The scroll wheel is effortless and extremely accurate and responsive. The magnifier feature was a pleasant surprise. I do detail work all day and I'm able to zoom in and see exactly where my cursor is touch...
Cons: The first time I loaded the software, the zoom didn't seem to work correctly so I was disappointed. But after the computer rebooted, there it was and it works great. So give yourself a reboot or two before you decide the mouse is defective.
Summary: Also to gamers: Don’t listen to anyone saying this can’t be used as a gaming mouse. I was worried about it not being very responsive, but I am extremely happy with how easily I can select targets and use the side buttons for quick actions.
Pros: I adore the feel of this mouse. As someone with small hands even for a woman, this mouse is beyond comfortable and doesn't feel like you're hauling around a rat instead of a mouse. Its size and weight seem about average compared to most mice. The thumb rest is comfortable; and the buttons are in ...
Cons: None for regular desktop users. 5 eggs. To gamers: Be aware that this mouse has a hair-trigger scrollwheel while playing games. In Windows it’s fine, but I play World of Warcraft and it took me about 2 days to get used to just barely brushing the scroll to move down lists in game. I am also not a...
Summary: I am 6'4" and do not have little hands, I looked at retail outlets and all they had for notebooks were tiny mouses. I tried one and my hand kept cramping up. Just because it is a notebook, why do manufacturers make the mouse tiny?
Pros: Perfect for my big hands. Does the job the way I need it to do.
Cons: None, It's a mouse. Can't use it on glass tops, need a mouse pad, but it's not a problem.
Cons: Like some others have reported, this mouse has sporadic output. I have never had problems with mice before, but this one is clearly junk. Cursor moves when it feels like it, scrolls only if it feels like it, etc. Included driver disc useless with windows 7. Driver is available from Microsoft webs...
