Summary: Windows 7 needs intelliPoint 8 to install all the features. I love the ability to program the wheel center switch to go back instead of the worthless flip function in 7 and to set horizontal and vertical scroll features.
Pros: Small and light weight. I have a 5 year old wireless desktop set and my larger wireless 5000 started having problems (switches wearing out) and I found a lot of other mice that were 50 to 70 dollars and required the use of another usb port or the purchase of a new desk set for $60 to $120. This l...
Cons: This is smaller than my old mouse and I am sure the battery life is shorter since there is only 1 battery instead of 2. It would be nice to have some other to turn it off other than clipping in the doddle.
Cons: The receiver worked and the driver was installed, but the actual mouse never worked on either of the two that I bought. I put in multiple batteries and none of them even caused the laser to flash. Dead mice.
This Mouse is Incredible. Superb. I LOVE this Mouse.

Summary: I owned an Optical Microsoft 3000 mouse and quite fancied that. This is about 4-5 times of an upgrade! I have tried Logitech products and was absolutely disgusted by how wretched, clunky, just bloody awful Logitech mice and keyboards were.
Pros: Weighted Perfectly. Smooth gliding roll-scroller (feels like floating on air cushion!). Did I mention that it's weighted and sized incredibly efficiently? It's rare to find a mouse that isn't a behemoth or too small or weighted oddly. The weight location and size of this is magnificent. Can be us...
Summary: Lasted me about 5 years before I dropped it and it broke. Just ordered another one.
Pros: Nice compact size. USB adapter fits into the bottom of the mouse. 3 buttons...which is irregular for a notebook mouse. I do web development and use the 3rd mouse button on the side as a back button.
Summary: Lousy documentation, which is, not surprisingly, apparently also incompatible with the Win7 OS hardware platform. Laptop shows a charged mouse, but evidently the mouse never sent the command to the OS. Interesting. Back it goes. NewEgg, kindly publish useful info on this stuff, ok?
Pros: It's dead. None.
Cons: This product is dated 2008, so it's potentially three years out of date. It's also incompatible w/Win7 unless you download a new proggie from MS. Lastly, it's dead in the water and won't do a single solitary thing - tried three consecutive charged NiCads but zip.
