Pretty look, but no good for long horus of use
on January 14, 2010
I read the other customer's reviews before purchasing this mouse and read that it might be too small. So I looked at it in the store, but couldn't try it out so I purchased it, hoping it wouldn't be too small. They were right.
I LOOOOOVE the look of this mouse, so clean, and shiny and I love the neon green. I LOVE the combination of Any NEON color on black, not like the ugly gray slanty V design mouses they have out now. I liked the rubber grip, kudos for that. So aesthetically it was VERY pleasing. I like that it only has 3 buttons, and no stupid extra button. I love the corded connection so i NEVER have to worry about missing signal or interfering signal, batteries etc. I love that it didn't need software or setup. Just plug in and USE. YAY!
However, it was very small. And I don't have very big hands, I'm a medium in latex gloves and size 8 in women's gloves. I don't have super long fingers or anything. Still, it was too small, and only fit near the tips of my fingers. The buttons were kinda hard to press, i had to use a little force. The scroll button was very stiff, both up and down scroll and side to side scroll. ESPECIALLY on the side-to-side it was stiff.
I'm a graphic designer so for long usage it's very uncomfortable. I recommend instead the Logitech RX1500 Corded Laser Mouse. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CJ645I/ref=cm_cr_mts_prod_img
It's much fuller, rounder, bigger, simple design, still the 3 buttons, still the corded connection. But the scroll wheel us much softer, glider easier, i don't have to use so much force. It works up and down AND sideways, like a charm. I am currently using the RX1500 and I am VERY happy with it. In fact I wrote a little poem about it and it's on the rx1500 as a review.
