Stutters and freezes.

Russell L., Newegg
24 October 2011
  • Summary: I think the distance and obstacles between my mouse and computer are very typical and the mouse should have been able to handle it easily. In fact, I purchased a Logitech M505 wireless mouse to replace this one and it is working flawlessly in the same set-up.
  • Pros: Nice size. Works without installing extra software.
  • Cons: -Jerky performance and freezing. -Smooth scroll wheel (should be a pro if you like that) -Mouse only turns off when the radio dongle is snapped into the bottom My computer is on the floor under the desk to my left (so say 4 feet from the mouse on the desktop) and the wireless connection seemed in...

Disappointing

Robert T., Newegg
25 December 2010
  • Summary: From reading blogs on Microsoft sites it seems that this is a known problem to them. I hope they can work this out.

  • Cons: Scroll wheel and wheel center click issues!! This mouse does not play well with MS Intellipoint 8.0, I use several different CAD and pdf programs that use the scroll wheel to zoom the view in and out. This mouse with Intellipoint 8.0 acts like a hyper zoom, barely move the wheel and the zoom is a...

Batteries

Alan, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: I am having to replace the batteries once every 3 weeks. I am using a 'Fellowes' memory form mouse pad. However the last set of batteries I put in it was about 2 months ago, so maybe it's behaving now? but it keeps good speed and tracking. It struggles at about 4-5 meters distance.

good but flawedmouse

18 October 2013
  • Summary: Nice mouse. But... Picks up dirt easily, after a few months use it will be disgusting. Rubber falls of wheel after about a years use. Buttons go a bit funny.

Comfortable, but needs updating

Steve, Amazon
21 August 2013
  • Summary: This is a comfortable mouse until you try to use the side buttons (which I programmed for 'copy' & 'paste' ) whereby I have to take my hand off, look down at the mouse & reposition my thumb & 3rd finger.

  • Summary: Decent enough mouse and works with mac. Not a huge fan of mouse wheels that don't provide any tactile feedback when scrolling but that it personal preference. Otherwise a good purchase for the money.

Great mouse but 2 design flaws

R. D. Ellsmore "bobellsmore", Amazon
28 April 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a wired Microsoft optical mouse that developed an intermittent fault after more than a decade of sterling service. It is a lovely mouse to use, a nice weight, it slides smoothly and all the buttons EXCEPT for the scroll-wheel (middle button) click operate beautifully.
