Great Mouse, Outdated Software,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kensington 72121 Mouse-in-a-Box Optical Elite USB Mouse (PC/Mac) (Personal Computers)NOTE: THE SOFTWARE FOR THIS MOUSE DOES NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS 7!
The only reason this mouse does not get 5 stars is because the software does not work under Windows 7 (and the company apparantly has no plans to update it). I require a mouse with programmable buttons for my job and without the software you cannot reprogram the buttons. I spilled a drink in my old mouse and needed a new one in a hurry and didn't bother to read up on this like I should have.
The mouse actually felt really good and was a perfect weight and buttons were easy to use. It's ashame they are no longer updating the software!

I'm actually using this mouse with Windows 7 Ultimate. I liked it so well, I got the same mouse for my wife's computer. She runs Windows XP Home, and the mouse was wreaking so much havoc I did a system restore and using a cheap optical mouse instead.
Why is the mouse/software so unpredicatable? I've been reading very positive to very negative comments here.
It's just a mouse! It should not be that difficult to plug and play!
