Summary: I bought two of these as a test and I've used them both extensively; moving them from system to system. I've had to put the transmitter into a USB extender on the top of the desk rather than into the desktop chassis.
Pros: Less noise than a regular mouse and what noise there is is less penetrating than a regular mouse.
Cons: Sometime need to remove batteries to reset them. Poor range but workable with thought.
Summary: After years of frustation with high priced, name brand mice, this option was ideal. And getting rid of that annoying click click click for 8 hours a day is well worth the price. Even if I have to buy several each year.
Pros: Almost totally silent, comfortable size and good tracking. Has a small nano receiver that stores in the mouse and when receiver is removed from pc, the mouse actually turns off. Smooth tracking and price is very resonable.
Cons: Some may not like the "feel" of the matte finish on the mouse. Instructions are skimpy with no information regarding the DPI button. Scroll button works great when surfing the net, but does not function in all applications.
Summary: I grew to appreciate it over the month that I've owned it. I transitioned from abject hate, to begrudging respect, and then to using it all the time. My wife is sleeping better too, though the new silent mouse was not the only change we made. Incremental, though...
Pros: It is a lot quieter than a standard mouse, especially in a large space. When hearing it up close, you think, "meh, it's not so quiet"; but the guy sitting two chairs away from you can't hear it at all.
Cons: It simply doesn't work on my mouse-pad. I know, it's petty, but every scritch and scratch makes a difference when you're trying to be quiet. Any hard bare surface will work. Also, the right-click button is super easy to accidentally press.
Great Little Mouse - But Not 100% Silent (It's like 90%)

Summary: Overall, I really like this mouse. I haven't had it long enough to comment on its longevity, but my initial impression is quite good. I didn't expect a 100% silent mouse though, and therefore I was not disappointed (I just couldn't imagine how a mouse could be perfectly silent while still retaining...
Pros: -Mini, auto-connecting receiver is great, and it stores in the bottom of the mouse. -The mouse clicks are VERY quiet (though not "silent" - see cons). The clicks are quiet enough to use in a library or something without bothering people. If you ever start to think "hey these click aren't silent!"...
Cons: -Not 100% silent - there is a very, very quiet clicking noise (the closest comparison is to clicking the + or - buttons on a Wii controller - it's almost the exact same noise level) -DPI switch is not silent, it's the standard loud click (but you will hardly use this button) -The scroll wheel, wh...
Summary: + Relativ, aber nicht rekordverdächtig leise + Präzise, sowohl in der Bewegung als auch im Klicken + Läuft auch mit Akkus + Akkus halten relativ lange + Liegt gut in der Hand + Braucht unter Windows für die Grundfunktionen keinen eigenen Maustreiber - Das Scrollrad hat nur 6 Monate gehalten - Das...
Summary: Habe 2 Stück gekauft, von denen eine zwar kein Klickgeräusch produziert, wohl aber ein Quietschen bei der Benutzung der linken Maustaste. Leider ist keine Möglichkeit vorhanden, das Teil zu öffnen und evtl. zu ölen.
Summary: Habe die Maus seit einer Woche. Sie ist um einiges leiser als meine bisherige "normale" Maus von Cherry. Es sind zwar noch gedämpfte Geräusche wahrnehmbar, aber die stören mich keineswegs. Das Scrollrad ist ein wenig wackelig. Leider hat die Maus keine Vor/Zurück-Tasten.
