    Very good mouse.

    Posted
    ZackZ

    I just got this mouse. I saw nobody else wrote a review, so I decided to pitch in. All in all, this is a very good mouse. The instructions said I would need to download and install the software for the scroll wheel. Turns out, I didn't even need to, it just did it by itself. The mouse is Bluetrack, so it's like a laser mouse, but a blue laser instead of a red one. The buttons on the side feel nice, and if you don't customize them, they can be used as a forward or back button, like the ones on an internet browser. The mouse is smooth when it scrolls, a lot better than my old trackball, not to mention that the scroll wheel is also very responsive and smooth. It says it's not compatible with 64 bit Windows XP. I don't know what it means by 64 bit, but obviously it works fine with mine. I highly recommend buying this mouse.

    terrible mouse and worse customer service

    Posted
    fwiwuser

    We got this mouse with the intention of using a corded mouse for work. We waited until after Christmas to open the mouse and it was terrible from the first click. Every time we touched/clicked on the right click of the mouse, it squeaked. Clearly the spring was faulty and needed to be replaced. The click of the mouse is also extremely loud and hard to push down. We took the mouse back to Best Buy with our receipt in hand and was told that they could not exchange our mouse because it was out of the 30 day window or return it using the manufacturer's warranty. So, even though the mouse was sold as faulty, Best Buy would not stand behind the product they sold. The customer service rep told us to "contact Microsoft" but could not provide any details on how. After researching further, we contacted Microsoft to send a replacement. Such a waste of time to replace the mouse and clearly Best Buy won't even support the product. Do not recommend.

    Buttons Squeak! (believe the reviews!)

    I've only had this mouse for a few days, and am planning on taking it back tomorrow... why? Well, I'm simply shocked by how dead on these other reviews are... which leads me to believe this mouse has serious design and production flaws. First thing's first... the left button squeaks (loudly) when clicked... very annoying. Also, another thing was a little bit "off" and I couldn't pinpoint it until I read other reviews... for some reason I find myself putting too much effort into clicking (and middle clicking, using the scroller)... I use all kinds of different mice in the course of a couple days... and I've never ever thought "wow, for some reason I just cant use this mouse correctly", until I got this mouse. Perhaps the tall arch as other reviewers have also suggested... I don't know. Anyway it's going back (mainly for the squeaky click) tomorrow, and probably being replaced by a Logitech.

    Best mouse that I've owned

    The Bluetrack technology is excellent for first person shooter games. Quick and accurate. The cord is nice because I don't have to worry about batteries The black part of the mouse feels and grips like rubber It is very comfortable The button clicks are very defined and make an audible click when pressed. You may like this or you may not. The scroll wheel does not click, bump or have any resistance. The scroll wheel button takes some force to push down. It can sometimes be cumbersome to push without scrolling the free spinning wheel.

    Not a good mouse

    Posted
    Lyleforrester

    Purchased this mouse on 10/16/2011 for a new gaming rig I built last week. I wanted a corded mouse for the precision and responsiveness I desired that a cordless mouse generally lacks. Here is what is wrong with this mouse: 1. It is not comfortable at all unless you have freakishly big hands (or small?) For the average user, it will cause quick fatigue due to the high arch. 2. My biggest complaint is the effort involved in every click. Usually it requires just the slightest muscle contraction to click whatever I'm clicking, but this actually requires a deliberate push and did not loosen up over time. 3. Loud as heck clicking sound as stated previously.

    First Wired BlueTrack Mouse!

    Posted
    MouseReview

    For some reason Microsoft is heavily favoring smooth scroll wheels. Unfortunately Microsoft doesn't make a good smooth scroll wheel. I prefer a mouse with the tactile response of a click wheel. The good news is this mouse is the first to offer BlueTrack tracking in a wired mouse. If it had a click scroll wheel, it would have been perfect.

    Great tracking on any surface, reliable.

    The blue light tracking technology of this mouse really works well. It will track on any surface, which is essential for laptop use. The unit is light, sturdy and easily stuffed into the laptop carrying case. I personally would rather not have the two buttons on the upper section of the sides. They are too easy to activate accidentally when grabbing the mouse.

    I first brought the old mouse to the Geek Squad to test at store. They said it was fine. BUT I paid full price to have them come to my house to find iout it was the mouse. Just a little more pricey then just buying one there and installing it myself. But whle here, he fixed another problem, so was grateful.

    Loud. Never had a mouse like it

    Review2

    Each and every click is so loud that I would expect from a lower priced item or no name. I have never had a mouse that was this loud clicking and each time it is very annoying. Also not comfortable at all. Has a high arch and after a while using it hand actually hurts.

    Great if it Didn't Squeak

    I've had this just under a month. Last week the left mouse button developed a new squeaking sound when clicking, not always but most of the time. I expected more from this and am not sure if I'm going to try again with a replacement or just pick something else.

    When so many today are so small, this one is the right size for my hand and it is easy to use. I had no problem installing it.

    Nice size to prevent my hand from cramping, but the click on this thing is pretty noisy.
