With high-definition optical technology, four-way scrolling, comfort for righties and lefties, customizable buttons, and more, the Microsoft Comfort Mouse 3000 is the perfect upgrade to your existing mouse. An integrated scroll wheel lets you scroll through documents and Web pages more quickly and easily with this ergonomic, four-button mouse. Plus, the new Magnifier lets you easily enlarge and edit details.
Zoom in on your work with the innovative Magnifier.
Use the scroll wheel to scroll horizontally and vertically.
Whether you're working on a document, perusing a Web page, or playing the latest video game, you can enhance your performance with the Comfort Mouse 3000's high-definition technology. It delivers more precision and responsiveness while offering smoother tracking on more surfaces than ever before. To put it simply, it's the most advanced tracking system available.
Scroll up and down and side to side more smoothly, efficiently, and easily with the innovative four-way tilt wheel. It's simply a more efficient way to navigate documents, spreadsheets, and Web pages. The entire scroll wheel tilts from side to side, acts as a button, and reacts to how quickly you roll the wheel to enable smooth, accurate maneuverability. For example, if you're working with a super-wide worksheet, you can tilt the wheel from side to side to scroll right and left, without clicking tiny scroll arrows.
All Hands Welcome
Lefties rejoice! The Comfort Mouse 3000 is made to be used in either hand, making it highly versatile. No matter which hand you use, customizable buttons offer quick access to the media, programs, and files you use most often.

It's pretty comfortable and solidly built.
Left click, right click, center click, and zoom buttons are nice and smooth.
It's wired so you never have to worry about battery life, or signal strength.
The Zoom is something I feel in love with and use it all the time! Turning the zoom feature on and off and then adjusting the size / scale is about as intuitive as it gets. When I'm working on design projects and pixel-by-pixel precision is an issue, the zoom really gives an advantage. It is a seamless addition that I will miss!
Microsoft's driver software (intellipoint) is almost anything you'll ever need, unless you're a gamer.
I'm not a gamer, but I need to warn anyone who is, this is NOT a gaming mouse. It doesn't have the dpi, or handling performance you will eventually crave. Don't skimp or you'll be sorry ;)...
After less than a year the paint started to wear off from the left click and is beginning to wear off on right click as well. (This isn't a huge deal, but it's worth mentioning.) The design itself is nothing special, and the two-tone grey seems a little ugly to me.
Right off the bat, the horizontal (left and right) clicking on the scroll wheel was difficult to operate. I love being able to scroll horizontally, but it seems very clumsy with this mouse.
The mouse is pretty light weight and because of the somewhat high-arch for my medium-sized hand, it tends to actually slip forward or completely out from under my hand, which means hitting the floor because of my keyboard tray's position.
BUT... the real kicker for me is the scroll wheel! At first it wasn't a problem. It felt very loose. When you try to scroll, the whole wheel wobbles / shifts as it spins. I suspect this has something to do with it's downfall. After a few months it began to get harder to move. The rubber around the wheel is really slippery which makes it even HARDER to spin. After the almost 2 years of daily use, the scroll wheel is almost completely seized up! It barely moves and it's impossible to use. I've taken the mouse apart completely and used graphite as an attempt to lubricate the wheel, but it didn't help at all. The wheel is probably only going to get worse and someday completely stop moving. I bet you can imagine how frustrating this is to me. I need a new mouse.
Microsoft's driver software has the best interface with Windows that I've seen, and the zoom is probably going to be hard to find again. With this, I got a cheap mouse, and it lasted for a while... but I've had $10 mice last 4-5 years without ever wearing out. I guess I'm going to have to set my price range a little higher.
I noted elsewhere that the point was made about the center mouse wheel/button being hard to turn. I had noted that it tented to have some resistance to it when you tried to turn it. I chalked this up to it being new, but I now have to see it as problem with this mouse. The mouse I brought is still working very well and other than this problem, works very well. The enlarging left hand button has been a bit hard for me to get used to getting out of, but is has been handy. The biggest problem with the middle mouse button/wheel is the amount of resistance to turning it has. Though I don't recommend this to others buying this mouse, I think I found out what causes the resistance. If one looks closely at the center mouse wheel, one sees that it has a "protector" around it that seems to touch it at points. (I guess this is supposed to keep dust etc., out of the wheel well.) After I looked this over carefully I noted that this "protector" is domed shaped item with a hole in the center that the wheel comes up through. My mouse had gotten so hard to turn the wheel that the center mouse button was actually being clicked when I tried to scroll! I'm one of the people that tend to try and repair an item if it seems repairable. This mouse was no different. I took the pads off the bottom, unscrewed the four screws holding the top on and after gently lifting off the top, I removed this dome with the hole in it. What A difference!!! The wheel was freed up and turned easily and had enough resistance so you could scroll with out a problem. It seems that MS, I their zeal to protect the mouse was dirt, etc., had created another problem they hadn't for seen. Like I said if a person likes this mouse's features and doesn't mine fooling around a bit like I do the scroll wheel can be fixed. That said, I think the cheaper MS basic mouse is a better buy now.
