4.0 out of 5 stars Just a basic optical mouse, December 24, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kensington K72356US Mouse-in-a-Box USB Desktop Mouse - Black (Personal Computers)
My Belkin optical mouse finally quit on me, I think I used the left button way too much playing Diner Dash. I'd never heard of the Kensington brand before now, but decided to give it a try because of the cheap price and 5 year warranty.

It has a 5 foot cord, attaches via USB port, definitely easy plug and play hookup - I'm running Vista. I have small hands and this feels comfortable. The buttons and scroll wheel work as expected as far as a basic mouse.

But if you are wanting to use it for games, even a game as basic as Solitaire, or even Slingo, find something else. This mouse is not responsive enough, and the left button starts feeling mushy after a week of using it.

UPDATE: Still working fine after almost 2 years of use, I quit playing Diner Dash so not as much wear & tear on the left button.

The Kensington brand for mouse and keyboard have been around for decades. I have not seen it as much lately but, way back in the 80's and 90's, it was considered top quality.
