Just what I wanted
27 June 2013
Pros: I have used nothing but a Microsoft Intellimouse 6000 mice for the past 7 years. The reason is because I will not live without the magnify feature that only Microsoft comes with. Aside from losing the magnify feature I love so much, Logitech mice have always been too heavy for my liking. My broth...
Cons: As mentioned above, clicking is louder than I would like, but not by much.
Summary: Good mouse, tracks excellent, comfortable to grip, only gripe is the wheel is very inaccurate. Sometimes one notch of the wheel will scroll once, sometimes twice, sometimes three times. Scrolling quickly will have random response/drifting.
Summary: I'm thinking of getting 2 more just in case MS discontinues this model.
Pros: tracking as advertised, I put the mouse on my palm and it tracked then on my head and it tracked. all buttons work.
Cons: I have small hands and the 6000 is a little big, I have trouble reaching the second thumb button. I don't know if this is a con or what but it feels very light (mouse and buttons). I've had this mouse for @6 months and it feels the same as the 1st day I used it.
Summary: Probably the best mouse that Microsoft makes for gamers anymore. We should all be annoyed with them, because discontinued all their nice mice and only focus on touch mice and basic ones... They used to make really, REALLY good mice, for way cheaper than any other company.
Pros: It has the same shape as an Intellimouse Explorer or a Habu (Both extremely awesome mice that Microsoft bungled by decommissioning.) The buttons all work nicely, and it fits a palm grip well. Good enough sensor to game with. AMAZING software. The intellimouse drivers, and now the mouse and keyboa...
Cons: It's small. The pictures make it look like an updated version of the Intellimouse (Which was huge, and a lot of us loved it because of that), but it's probably only 75% as large. This actually is a con for me, as it causes my pinky to rub against the mouse surface annoyingly.
Summary: Compared with my Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000 (my 7 year old mouse this is meant to replace) this thing weighs next to nothing which is weird to me, not necessarily a con.
Pros: Tracks fairly well on just about any surface as the product description boasts. The scroll wheel has just enough resistance between detents to not accidentally scroll and is fairly quiet.
Cons: The left//right buttons are quite possibly the *loudest* mouse buttons i've ever heard or used. I imagine it might quiet down once i've got it broken in but really the noise is my only complaint at this point.
Summary: - it's a little small for my hand, but that is me personally, thus not really a con. - i hope it doesn't burn out like others have had. i've had this for around 3 months and so far it has been great. - i'm super picky about interface devices.
Pros: - Very responsive. I haven't purchased a non-gaming mouse for over two years, so I was very pleased when this mouse felt as responsive as my higher performance, higher priced mouse. - For the price class, it seems solidly built and works very well. - Transceiver is small (like many) and does not ...
Summary: It's a good compact mouse for its price. It works and I can say its reliable to take around with you. I think most mice would work fine on about any surface you can find unless you use a really weird surface where I wouldn't even consider putting my mouse on.
Pros: Pretty cheap mouse especially elsewhere. Microsoft hypes up the blue track technology a lot, it did work on every surface I tried it on from smooth to rough to grainy surfaces but so did my free optical mouse that I got with my Dell worth no more than $5. Not much I can say about that. The mouse ...
Cons: There's 2 downsides to this mouse. First is that it starts loosing its connectivity while my laptop is in high load, usually during gaming. The connection starts going in and out where it becomes practically useless until I put the mouse right next to the USB connector. Even though the wireless c...
Summary: The final con is the nano-receiver. This thing is finicky folks. Testing it right now, line of sight, 10 ft is as far as it's going before the signal breaks down. My last logitech went at least 30 ft. Really, it sounds like I'm giving a 3 egg review, but it deserves a 4.
Pros: Without a doubt, this mouse is great on almost any surface. My friend had one, we were testing it on rugs, and weird glass surfaces, and it did really well on all of them. That being said, how often are you going to be using this on a rug? That was just the reason I picked it up. I have to say af...
Cons: Three major things, the scroll wheel does not last forever. It has this soft padding around it. I happened to notice after a lot of scrolling that it was a little looser than normal. I tried to adjust it. Eventually, it just broke. I can still scroll fine, but expect that to break after a while. ...
Summary: -only gave it 4 eggs as that scroll wheel is SO buggy. cs:s is horrid on changing weapons. purchased for a tad less at a blue and yellow store, surprising considering they are usually more expensive. However i do believe it was on sale.
Pros: -decent build quality -nice nano receiver -fits hand nice, works good for both games and PS/DW
Cons: -scroll wheel has NO resistance. -mouse buttons on the sides are impossibly small to get to -occasionally looses signal from nano receiver, must put mouse on left side of laptop for a second, then move back to right and it works perfect for days on end till same silly problem.
