Great mouse, fails soon after warranty exp.

  • Summary: Ergonomically, the mouse handles well and is snappy when working. But, I bought mine @ Staples 9/29/11, and it failed 6/2/13 (flashes 3 times, and Win 7 says it can't install the device driver). Also, there need to be strain reliefs (e.g., heat shrink) on the cord where it enters the connector housing and the mouse housing itself, to relieve strain on the cord's wire strands at the bend points. I'll probably buy another one, but it should be more durable for $22.

  • Summary: I like the ergo aspects and the ease of click along with the perfect scroll resistance. As long as you treat it like an adult, it will be around and dependable for a while. One can tell. I got two becasue they're THAT cool... Or becuse I am that cool. I forget which now.
  • Pros: ergo
  • Cons: nada

NOT USABLE ON 17" Macbook Pro for Righty

RoadWarrior, targus.com
3 July 2011
  • Summary: Nice product but NOT USABLE ON 17" Macbook Pro for right-hand user because the retractable USB cable is too short. I'd buy 2 if Targus made the identical product with 6 more inches of cable!
  • Pros: quiet clicking precise tracking
  • Cons: unusable for righ-handed people on macbook pro 17"
