Did not track well with my X-Trac mouse pads
on May 8, 2015
I purchased a 2-pack of these, and they both have tracking issues with an X-Trac mouse pad that has a gray-black-white hex grid pattern on its surface. The problem went away with use of a plain white piece of paper for tracking. The mouse pad never gave me any problems with several years of use and several different mouses, so I have to assume that this mouse is of inferior construction. It also will be an expense to find an aesthetically pleasing mouse pad that works with this mouse.
I like the appearance and feel of the mouse, but because of this issue I would not buy again. While in use, the mouse pointer occasionally jumps to a completely different part of the screen (again, both mouses do this on these X-Trac mouse pads).
This incidentally caused me to knock a star off of the X-Trac mouse pad, which is a shame as it has never failed me until I used this mouse with it, and with only 2 other reviewers, I drove the average down a bit. But I have now established that the pads aren't good for every optical mouse and have certain quality requirements.
