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.
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: I don't know why this mouse isn't rated higher, especially since it has the magnification feature some others don't Should last a long time, I had another IntelliMouse for seven years. Quick shipping from Newegg
Summary: Let me teach all you deal-hunters about the difference between OEM and Retail: OEM is cheaper because you DON'T pay for the packaging you'd find at Walmart, retail is more expensive because you DO pay for that packaging.
Pros: Lasted longer than my wireless Logitech Keyboard/mouse setup, which replaced this mouse and the adapter died a day after the return period expired at my college bookstore. I went back to this mouse and bought a new (wired) keyboard, and I'm really happy.
Cons: two months ago, I would have said the only con was the manufacturer (I was a Linux junkie back then), but then I went from Linux Mint (best distro EVER) to Win7 7229 and I haven't looked back. So, no cons.
Summary: I highly recommend this to anyone who needs a mouse for their laptop, especially on-the-road business people who need something to quickly plug in and use.
Pros: Purchased this with my HP dv8210us laptop ~4 years ago (this mouse was about $50 back then, Newegg has it here for $17!). My review is about the mouse itself, so I cannot vouch for this OEM version specifically. Great smooth-scroll wheel (no clicking when scrolling). Clear tracking laser (as oppo...
Cons: Occasionally loses connection with receiver, but keep in mind that this ONLY started happening after ~4 years of use, and a healthy amount of abuse over that time. This issue may be caused by Windows 7 drivers for it (don't quote me on this though, as it is only a guess) since it only started hap...
Summary: I'm actually ordering another one right now for my laptop.
Pros: Feels perfect. Scroll wheel is just right. This mouse has lasted me over a year. Battery life is great, I can't remember the last time I had to change it. Laser is great. This is probably the best mouse you could find for under $40.
