Worked Fine for a Long TIme

Summary: I finally wore it out. One foot(slider) came off and the wheel bearing wore out. Precision movement of cursor was easy. Batteries lasted for a long time. Distance from laptop was never a problem. Newer mouse has a much smaller dongle which greatly reduces likelihood of breaking it or damaging the USB port.
Summary: A minus for this mouse: its wheel. When clicking the wheel (e.g.: over a link for opening it in a new tab), the mouse registers also a scrolling action, so you miss the link. This is because the wheel has no resistance. I wouldn't buy this mouse again.
Summary: I have had my mouse for about two years. It is easy and comfortable to use, and does what I need a mouse to do. However, I have noticed two problems, one of which might be unique to my mouse. 1. There is no "click" on the scroll wheel. I wonder if my particular mouse got assembled incorrectly, because I have never seen (or felt) this in any other mouse I've used, and I haven't read of anyone else noting this. It is not a major problem, but it is a bit disconcerting. 2.
Summary: Bought this mouse to replace an aging optical wireless mouse. Was disappointed to find that the tracking on my reflective countertop was sluggish and jerky. When touted as a high definition mouse and pinpoint accuracy, I was disappointed. I have to put a mousepad under it to make it functional. Understandably, many optical mouses have difficulty on reflective surfaces, but my old optical mouse didn't. I would have hoped a "laser" mouse would do better.
Summary: This is a good mouse for basic functions and average computer users. There are some problems though. When you press the middle mouse button, one of two problems happens: A) There is a delay, then it is pressed or B) If you are scrolling at the time, nothing happens. In order to overcome that problem, I programmed one of the useful side buttons to also be a middle-click. The other problem with this mouse is it's reliability.
Summary: My first wireless mouse, and I liked it a lot, especially the physical form feel, accuracy, and side buttons for back/forward in web browsers (I reprogrammed the right to be forward instead of the default magnifier, which was annoying when I hit it by accident), all of which made it especially sad when it just died after about six months ... just stopped working, period. Replaced battery, pushed resets on both mouse and USB stick, still dead.
Mouse wheel not perfect and software lacks important features

Summary: This is overall a fine mouse. Wireless works smoothly on Windows XP and the mouse works great even on my black desk where my previous optical mouse would sometimes have problems tracking mouse movements. The device has two problems, however: The mouse wheel works great as a wheel. However, when clicking the wheel (e.g.

Summary: Ich benutze die Mouse erst 2 Tage, daher kann ich nur den ersten Eindruck schildern: Positiv + Installation sehr einfach. Anstecken, fertig. Ich benutze die Mouse mit dem Standard-Treiber, die Zusatzfunktionen nutze ich nicht + Präzise Steuerung + Ergonomisches Design + benötigt nur 1 Batterie (mal gespannt wie lange diese hält) Verbesserungswürdig - das Scrollrad ohne Einrasten ist gewöhnungsbedürftig und läßt sich nicht so präzise steuern - Ich habe die Mouse als...
