Good feel and tracking. Middle mouse button lacking (too firm).
on March 10, 2014
I was looking for a good mouse for my computers at home. It needed to have the usual 3 button and scroll wheel, as well as back/forward buttons. The only part of this mouse that I would change would be the click strength required for the middle mouse/wheel. It is way too firm for normal usage. As a 3D artist, I use the middle mouse button a lot and this makes it difficult to navigate around in a scene. I also use the middle mouse button to open links into new tabs when browsing the internet.
Ideally the press for the middle mouse button should be the same if not slightly firmer than the left/right. I can only hope that after a couple years of use that the resistance will give out and feel a little more natural.
Things I wish I had known- I should have tested a bunch of these out at places like Best Buy to give the middle mouse a good feel. Since it's not a button that's heavily used, their floor models should be in good enough shape for sampling.
