    Classic Design; Not for Gaming

    Posted
    Wayne

    This is the resurrection of one of the greatest gaming mice of all time, so I really wanted to like this. Unfortunately, playing CS:GO @ 800 DPI I experienced a ton of skipping when lifting the mouse off my mousepad (Zowie GS-R). I don't know much about technicalities so I won't dive into arcane charts and numerical wizardry (you can find that on forums and reddit), but I can tell you it's not a reliable performer like the old design was if you're looking at competitive gaming/FPS. It's a great, handsome wired office mouse, but it's seriously disappointing that Microsoft came short of resurrecting a classic by making an awful design decision with the inclusion of the sensor type (Pixart 3808). I'll probably be using this at the office as a daily driver, but nothing gaming-related. Here's hoping MS monitors consumer feedback and releases a proper gaming variant later.

    Great WIRED mouse!

    I am SO tired of replacing batteries in wireless mice I could scream. Also the wireless mouse is really a solution for a mostly nonexistent problem. Wireless doesn't save you a USB port, you still need to plug in the transmitter, which is way too easy to lose. And when do you really not have room on your workspace for a mouse cord? If you don't, you probably don't even have room for a mouse, so you're probably using the trackpad anyway. Wireless mice are heavier than wired, and that battery always fails when I'm traveling and don't have a spare. So no more wireless mice for me. Why a Microsoft mouse? I much prefer the MS mouse software to Logitech's, and the tracking seems much more precise to me. This full-size retro WIRED mouse is a GREAT mouse.

    Doesn't work on other platforms

    I bought this from Best Buy on my way out, since it was in the mouse section, and I needed a new mouse. Took it home, plugged it in, but nope doesn't work - it works on Windows only. It's a proprietary USB device that looks like a mouse but is not a mouse that adheres to USB standards; it shouldn't have been in the mouse section in the first place. It's deceptive. Now I have to waste my time to return it. But you know what, if Best Buy and Microsoft want to be deceptive and waste my time, I'm fine wasting their time.

    First-rate classic wired mouse

    The perfect mouse: elegant, classic, understated, ergonomic, highly functional, very fast, very accurate, doesn't need batteries, doesn't look like a phaser from an old Star Trek movie or a Hello Kitty candy dispenser, doesn't have a dozen useless buttons, works with Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center software (far superior to Logitech's version), everything you need in a mouse and nothing you don't.

    It works reliably and fits in my (large) hand

    I don't need (or want) lots of buttons. I need the basic left, right and wheel. It does have 2 buttons for the thumb that I rarely use. I plugged it into my computer and it worked well without needing to make any adjustments to its settings.

    Decent Wired Mouse

    A simple wired mouse I picked up to replace an aging HP wired one, since all the wireless mice around this price required removable batteries. It is fairly ergonomic, goof for all hand sizes, the scroll wheel is nice, and it works seamlessly with both Windows and Mac.

    Classic Intellimouse Design

    The mouse is wired - USB. It has the classic Intellimouse design, which for most right-handed, a contour that nicely fits in your hand. The weight is typical for a wired non-gaming mouse. It has a white led underglow at the backend.

    This is a solid, well built mouse. Which can be used for your PC or your laptop, which is what I use it for. No bells or whistles, just two buttons and a scroll wheel, so if you need more versatility look somewhere else.

    My blue tooth mouse works well, but when I travel, it switches on sometimes in my briefcase and the batteries die. I needed a reliable mouse with a USB connection so I do not need to worry about batteries.

    Feels just like the old Classic Microsoft intellimouse. Great ergonomics, especially for larger hands. Feels great in the hand, which is very important. Hopefully it holds up as long as my old mouse!

    Nothing beats Microsoft products. The big thing now is a wireless mouse. But I'll use a mouse with a wire from Microsoft any day of the week.
