Summary: This was probably my fault when I ordered it, but I didn't realize it was so big. I wanted a small mouse for my notebook. Guess I could have returned it but it's just so much trouble to do that. It hurts my hand when I use it so I went back to an older mouse (small) that I had.
I would give it one star but then I think I might lose some credibility

Summary: I bought this mouse because I needed a mouse that had a wireless range of about ten feet and one that would work well on my wood desk as well on arm of my sofa for when I connect my computer to my TV. Neither of these were accomplished with this mouse. It does not track well on the wood desk, on the arm of the couch, on the end table with a cloth on it, or on a piece of white paper on my desk. No..
Summary: I loved this mouse until it had a flat tire! Intermittently I would experience so much drag on the scroll wheel that it would barely turn. This usually happened in the morning after extended hours of non use. Today I was having troubles and the entire rubber outer rim had pulled away from the wheel. It was like the rubber rim was several millimeters larger than the wheel. How could this happen??? Today I ordered a new Logitech mouse, I'll limp along until it arrives.
Summary: As other reviewers mentioned, the lack of an indexed scroll wheel makes it virtually impossible to use. The accuracy seems awful, I end up scrolling all over the place inadvertently, and middle-clicking with the wheel is a torturous joke. On top of that, the acceleration and accuracy of the actual mouse all just feel off compared to the good old junky HP/Logitech wired optical mouse that comes standard with all of our work PC's.
Summary: I went around to all the office and electronics stores and "hand tested" all the display mice before settling on this model. It's solid, with a good bulk when the batteries are in, has a nice rubberized grip on the sides, and features side to side scrolling and side buttons that are user programmable. Unfortunately, that side scrolling middle click wheel is the only part of this mouse that's been a letdown so far.
Summary: the only complaint I have here - and I hope it doesn't make me crazy - is that the MS engineers decided to put the seam of the rubberized texturing RIGHT WHERE YOUR RIGHT THUMB RESTS.... hence you're always feeling that line. And, I expect, will help it slowly peel off the plastic mouse housing. Way to go, Engineers. Did you actually USE the prototype???
Summary: I've never had this happen on a mouse before, but whenever I click the left button there is a faint, but very noticeable squeak. ps. It's SUPER annoying. Everything else works as I expected and the mouse has good range. EDIT on 10-3-2012: I'm returning this mouse. I'm fairly certain I got a defective one. The squeak still happens and now the left button is sticking every few clicks.
Mouse wheel is designed poorly, can click "side buttons" if gripped too tightly.

Summary: Mouse-wheel eventually fails to roll smoothly, but everything else is [mostly] great. ...Long battery life, long distance reception, good feel; but the mouse-wheel isn't built well, and it requires too much force to click it down, and it has a rubber-ring that wraps around the wheel to help give the user some grip when rolling it, however the rubber-ring eventually "spins freely" around the center part of the mouse-wheel.
Summary: I got this mouse the day before college started last year. It was a great mouse until I brought it home for the summer. When I unpacked it, there was no sign of any damage, but it no longer turns on. After doing some research online I found that a lot of people are having this same problem. If you are thinking of getting this mouse, consider yourself warned. The scroll wheel is also really awkward.
