I had been searching high and low for an inexpensive, wireless, Mac-compatible, 5 customizable button mouse with 4-way scrolling to replace an older wired Microsoft mouse that fit the bill. I stumbled across this mouse by accident in a big box store, and thought it might be what I needed. But I was immediately bamboozled by the odd packaging that doesn't list any features but the BlueTrack technology. (Gee, that's great that I can use it on carpet or granite, but I think I'll just stick to a mousepad, thanks.)

Not even a mention of it having 5 customizable buttons or 4-way scrolling. I could only assume. Reading the product description here, again, one is left to guess.

Thankfully, a super-helpful clerk in the store allowed me to open the package and test the mouse- and yes, indeed it DOES have 4-way scrolling and 5 customizable buttons. In various programs like Photoshop, and Final Cut Pro it's always been very important to me to have those extra buttons that I can assign oft-used functions to.

Just thought I'd point this out for anyone else who might be wondering about this mouse's full feature set and getting no answers from the oddly lacking product descriptions that abound.

Since buying this, I've found this mouse a joy to use. It feels pretty good in my hand (I have large hands) I've used it now for a few weeks of 8-hour work days (video editing) and found it very comfortable. The accuracy is very good, making it a good fit for everything from standard PC use, to photo and video editing.

And yes, the 5-buttons work great.

I have a difficult time finding a comfortable mouse because my hands are big. This mouse fits perfectly. It's shape is more spherical than most others I've tried - more like holding a baseball.

I'm using it on my Mac as a replacement for the Apple Mighty Mouse because the Mighty Mouse felt too small in my hand. First I tried plugging it in without loading the included software but the Mac was confused, thinking I had just plugged in a second keyboard. After loading the software however, everything works perfectly.

The optical technology works fine even on my smooth gray plastic-laminate desktop and the scroll wheel is butter smooth with no ratcheting feel at all.

Great product!

I love this mouse. I must admit that it did feel bulky and weird to me at first but i got used it pretty quickly.

I never had any problem with this mouse or its signal.

However today, about a year since i purchased it the transceiver died. It seemed to be REALLY hot when I unplugged it, which from internet searches doesn't seem to be too uncommon for microsoft wireless mouses. It has a 3yr warranty, and although I don't have the receipt anymore, microsoft are sending a replacement mouse out. Sweet!

This is a great little mouse compared to the "ergonomic" lump I was using. This one is smooth, quick and responsive....oh, and a lot less expensive! I found I needed to go by comfort and what felt right for me rather than thinking that any mouse under $50 was not going to be any good. This one is built solid. It is a little heavy after putting the batteries in, but thats okay, I don't plan on carrying it around alot :) The tracking is perfect. It works on just about any surface except clear glass.

Used this mouse about 2 hours and then disconnected and prepared it for return. The scroll wheel has no subtle clicks; it's simply free-spinning. So in applications where the scroll wheel click advances the options by one (drop-down menus in web browsers, pages in Adobe Acrobat, or panel options in Photoshop), this is no longer possible. You have to constantly guess where the next option is when turning the scroll wheel making for significant imprecision. And the clicks cannot be programmed into the mouse, so there is no way to set this using the programming features of the mouse.

This is also a BIG mouse. If you have small hands, they won't cover it well and the subtle indentations in the mouse don't line up where you'd expect on your hand.

There isn't much i dislike about this mouse, but it does have some notable flaws.

1. The scroll button is loose, there is no clicking to give you any control over how much you're scrolling, this can be bothersome when you are only wanting to scroll a small bit, or even try using the scroll feature on a game.

2. the grooves in the side are rubber, and have little holes that just gather dirt, and are hard to clean.

3. The scroll button is quite hard to click, and if it weren't for the extra 2 side buttons, it'd probably be a significant let down.

I liked the extra buttons, the size, and everything else about the mouse, these flaws may or may not break it, depending on your tastes. I personally used the scroll button a TON so it was a huge let down.
I did however adapt it so that i use one of the side buttons far more often, so it worked out for me.
