I enjoyed using this mouse when I first started using it

GMcE, Amazon
25 March 2015
  • Summary: I enjoyed using this mouse when I first started using it. I like the Microsoft wheel action - and usually prefer it over Logitech. However, the mouse just stopped working, or would work sporadically after some months of use. It became completely unreliable.

So So

M. Sheridan, Amazon
22 June 2013
  • Summary: Seemed very good, but after a few weeks we started having problems with the cursor twitching and jumping around at times. In the past with other mice I've usually found this to be caused by fluff or a tiny thread in the optical path, but this didn't seem to be the case here.

Not all that.

A. Bond, Amazon
29 May 2013
  • Summary: I can't believe Microsoft has produced such a bad product, I found the mouse to large and heavy, "and I have large hands" it didn't glide very well on my mouse mat, also to turn the mouse off, you have to disconnect the large usb receiver from your pc, and place it in the base of the mouse, bad...

Nice fit, but middle click doesnt work on MAC

Guy Harwood, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: The mouse is a good shape and fits nicely in the hand. A real shame that the wheel click / middle click does not work on the mac. Also, when slowing down to click on things the pointer would jump around.

Very poor for CAD user

DAbell, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this mouse as I have been struggling to find one that was big enough for my hand, I was initially impressed by the size and the shape which was just what I was looking for. My initial happiness was very quickly replaced by sadness when I realised the mouse performed horribly.

Part of the Comfort Range?

NotMyToot..., Ciao
14 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I got this mouse as part of a keyboard and mouse set. This set was specifically design to be an ergonomic set which would make the devices more comfortable. I have already written a review for the accompanying keyboard but the mouse has similar issues too. It is just not comfortable!
  • Pros: BlueTrack Technology makes it possible to use the mouse on more surfaces
  • Cons: NOT ergonomic  -  despite what they say, awful scrollwheel

Deeply Flawed

HyperLight Research, memoryexpress.com
3 July 2012
  • Summary: Looks good and is comfortable to use, but has huge technical issues due to using cheap, out-of-date technology. Batteries for 1 year of normal use exceed the cost of the mouse.
  • Pros: Cheap Very configurable drivers Comfortable if you have big hands
  • Cons: Horrible battery life - about 4 weeks of full-time use - 1/10 to 1/20 of the life of other wireless mice. Interferes with WiFi - if you (or someone nearby) is heavily using your WiFi to transfer files or stream video, the mouse will miss clicks, miss scrolls, and have heavy lag. No power switch -...
