Cheap but good (Edit: limited durability)
on April 26, 2010
After two years of almost daily use, this mouse has finally broken down. It double clicks almost every time it is pressed, making simple tasks almost impossible. Since the mouse was cheap to begin with, I only dropped the rating by one star. But I expected more considering that the stock mouse that came with my ancient Compaq desktop is still working after 10 years. I suggest spending a little more on a better quality mouse that will last longer and also be easier to use. I replaced this mouse with a Logitech wireless mouse, and it feels much more solid overall. The mouse tracks a lot better, and the scrolling wheel has a much better feel. I'll have to wait and see how durable it turns out to be.
This was the cheapest mouse I could find, but it seems to work just fine. It is very light, which is good for me because I sometimes need to carry it around with my laptop. Like other reviewers said, this mouse is standard size; the "micro" in the name is just the brand. Some might find it a little too fast, but you can easily adjust the mouse speed in the control panel (on Windows XP, follow this order: Control Panel--mouse--pointer options. For Windows 7: Control Panel--Hardware and Sound--Mouse).
Previous edit (before failure): I use the mouse on a mouse pad and don't notice any irregular movements. I have also tried this mouse on my desktop (not perfectly smooth wooden desk) and it seems to work fine. I can see how it would be jumpy if you used it on a shiny, irregular surface though.
