It works, but poor feel

Summary: The mouse works; my criticism is with its subjective "feel." After years of Logitech mice, I switched brands to Microsoft. So perhaps these are just differences between the two brands.
Pros: It performs the essential functions of a wireless optical mouse.
Cons: - Optical sensor located near the base of the palm, rather than up near the fingers. - Scroll wheel spins fluidly, without any notches (poor tactile feedback). - Scroll wheel spins with inconsistent resistance (generally more resistance when scrolling "down" and less resistance when scrolling "up...
Summary: I am not a fan boy of any sort and for/about any companies. I tried many mice and brands in the past, we can say whatever we want about other mice brands but when it comes to durability, efficiency and ergonomy then Microsoft is the way to go. There is no other way to describe it...
Pros: 1) My hand is a paw type on mouse. This mouse fits the palm of my hand like a gentle glove, it feels good. 2) It glides well on my desk. 3) The fact the wheel does not have cliky on scroll made me feel strange for 2 minutes but once I tried it on websites and photoshop then it became very natural...
Summary: Mouse wheel is very sensitive and works over small steps. This is good for scrolling pages, but if you want to select an item in a game using mouse wheel, it can be problematic. If you intend to use this mouse for gaming, you might want to consider other options.
Pros: Works fine. Good precision. Battery lasts a while. Very smooth, quiet scrolling.
Cons: Mouse wheel can be a bit too sensitive. Rubber cover over it came off after a few months, but it works just fine without it.
Summary: Aside from the full sized transceiver, I can't think of anything that I would change about this mouse, and that isn't enough to deduct an egg for (maybe half of an egg). I'll probably buy a couple more of them before they stop making them.
Pros: This mouse is excellent for those of us with either larger hands, or simply prefer (or require) a mouse that is substantially sized. I have a lot of problems using the smaller mice, but this one is ideally sized. It feels solid, tracks well, has decent battery life, and works quite well. I have b...
Cons: The only problem I have with this mouse is the size of the transceiver. I use it as much with my laptop as I do with my desktop and having a large USB Transceiver sticking out of the side of the laptop makes it a bit awkward at times. If they had included one of the smaller transceivers they prov...
