The downside is after about 2 months of use, the small rubber padding area where your left thumb rests against the mouse starts the rub off and creates a rough scaled / peeling texture. After a while its easy to ignore but you do notice it. The classic intelli explorers I believe were plastic on the side not this soft rubber.
"They just don't make em like they used to!"
For what it's worth, the mouse was great for about 4 months. The design, style and fit to my hand is great. If the materials used to make it didn't wear out so quickly, I'd happily continue using it for years to come but that apparently isn't in the cards. I wish I could go back and buy any Logitech mouse instead of this one rather than trying to save a few bucks.
The shape has been retained, which is essential, but the button feel isn't very good and suffers a common issue among mice that leads to medical issues -- the force is too high. The top buttons are notably harder to press than the original, and the left button for "back" is significantly harder to press. The wheel operation also is higher force on the detents, so it's harder to move. One thing that made the original great, was the light touch on the controls that allowed for reduced carpal strain and smooth usage.
if you're like me and use the original Intellimouse because it's the right fit for your big hands, you'll find this new version retains the shape, but might cause you pain due to the increased button forces all around.
BACK TO BASICS
When I got my new Z2G4 workstation I retrogressed and went back to the simplest, most basic mouse I could find stuffed somewhere in the back of my desk and guess what, I like it better. Over time I have learned that there are a few things I don’t want or need, such as multiple tiny buttons on the top or sides that always get pushed at the wrong time – all I want or need is a left button, a right button and a scroll wheel. I don’t even care if the scroll wheel doubles as a button or tilts from side to side. I also learned I don’t want or need a mouse that has any kind of variable dpi or sensitivity – as a graphic designer I want it to act and feel exactly the same time after time after time. The last thing is something I disagree on with some other users – buttons that are harder to click are not a negative to me and they in no way cause hand or finger pain, quite the opposite the last thing I want is to be moving my mouse around with my fingers laying lightly on it and suddenly a button presses and does something to my work I didn’t want it to. I only want the buttons to click when I want them to.
The Intellimouse is larger than most but has an uncanny perfect fit into the palm of my hand. While it does have the two options buttons under the right thumb that most people use as forward and back, unlike so many models I have used my thumb falls naturally under those two buttons so I can’t possibly push them accidentally, yet when I do want to us them all I have to do is slide my thumb up slightly.
A couple of things I did not expect, especially at the low end of the range, is the cool ice blue light at the heel of the mouse that helps me find it in a darkened room. It’s there, it looks cool, but it doesn’t overwhelm or dazzle like some brands do. It’s just a minor concern that as far as I can see there isn’t a way of shutting the light off when the computer is powered down , but maybe that’s just my system.
The other unexpected thing is that as soon as I plugged it in it loaded its own driver without having to download a large memory hogging app like Logitech does. The app recognized which mouse I have and gives me a few extra control options that the operating system doesn’t
HOW IT FEELS AND PERFORMS
Yes this device is at the low end of the range, although you can get mice for even less. But unlike them it is not cheap feeling. Unlike most others at the low end it’s not super light weighing about double that of mice included with most computers these days and it has just enough weight to not skitter around my desk. The cord isn’t the fancy armored kind that some manufacturers are pushing, it is soft and flexible to the point there is no difference between it and a wireless mouse. The pads on the bottom glide smoothly and the scroll wheel doesn’t run away from me, it turns with an intuitive amount of force. What is noticeably different from other low end mice is the precision, a critical thing for anyone who does editing, retouching or graphics. It is much more precise without slowing down to a crawl.
And on the subject of precision, for the first time I was able to get rid of my mouse pad completely and use the much larger flat surface of my desktop as a tracking surface. I now have a degree of control that I’ve only seen on my very expensive graphics tablets and I never have to worry about falling off the edge of the pad on long dragging operations.
The final thing is also super important to me – I often work in my home studio into the late house of the night. A mouse that has loud plasticky sounding buttons and scroll wheel drives me up the wall. There have only been a couple of them I’ve ever owned that are silent or close to it. This one is one of the quietest I’ve ever owned. That would almost be reason enough for me to choose it.
The two biggest problems that I have are:
1) It is too light
#2 is the showstopper. I have had this two weeks and the side rubber where the thumb rests is already wearing through. You know how when you find something in a drawer that has been sitting there for a long time, and previously nice coating has turned into some futuristic adhesive? Like that.
Back to the drawing board.
Otherwise the mouse is very nice. I like the larger sized shell as I have hands on the larger side of the spectrum. I'd give it a 5 stars aside from this major flaw that makes it basically a "disposable" mouse that lasts a month or so, unless you like the feel of loose particles under your thumb.
Top reviews from other countries
Other than a matte finish, a new Microsoft logo, and a white tail light instead of red, this looks and feels almost identical to the IME 3.0. Until now, on other systems I've been using a mouse like the Razer Death Adder (again primarily for business) to get a feel similar to the IntelliMouse Explorer. I'm still very happy with the Death Adder, but this Microsoft mouse fits the bill just as well.
This is a brand new mouse, so I'll update the review if any durability problems develop.
Elle glisse trop facilement sur ma table. Peut être doit elle être toujours combinée à un tapis de souris. Il y a une cinquième "patte" à la souris située autour du capteur. Une sorte de rebord épais (cf. photo). La souris a donc ses 4 coins plus le rebord central. Ça rend la souris légèrement bancale comme une table d'un restaurant-bar agaçante. C'est très léger mais fini par tapper sur les nerfs. Toutes ces surfaces sont très dures et fournissent à la souris son style de glisse qui a la caractéristique d'être très fuyante. La prise en main est donc bancale et mal ancrée, faisant perdre en précision et en confort de navigation. Je ne sais pas si à cela s'ajoute peut être un capteur de mauvaise qualité.
Ce manque de précision global dans la navigation est tellement grande que cela détruit tous les points positifs ci dessous et je ne peux que la renvoyer.
L'ergonomie est presque parfaite pour ma grande main de 19.50 cm. Ça fait du bien. Je pourrais laisser ma main toute ma vie dessus. Elle aime ça. Tous les boutons et la molette me sont accessibles sans que je n'ai besoin de déplacer ma main ou ma paume. Et question de design c'est une souris magnifique. Sobre et grande.
The mouse itself is very comfortable & has a familiar shape to a Razer Deathadder I've owned years ago. It fits well with my ergonomic setup & has an overall clean aesthetic to it. I really didn't want any gamer elements to this desk as I use this computer mainly as a workstation & the simple modern white LED under glow is a nice touch.
Performance wise the optical tracking for me is very smooth however the fine accuracy in games is not it's forte. For me I am still playing around with in game sensitivities settings to find a comfortable medium for me as I only play FPS casually from time to time. So far 2600 DPI with low sensitivity adjustments is fine for me & the triple monitors setup.
It's a solid mouse with good tactile feedback from the buttons & doesn't feel cheap. Sides are a soft matte rubber & the top is a smooth plastic painted finish. It's a Great buy for under $50 price point & now I can comfortably move content across screens more effortlessly. :)
Logitech MX Revolution is very good, indeed (better than Classic IntelliMouse), except that, unlike Microsoft mouses, when I highlight a text, it does not copy it automatically, at least under Linux where I click on a point in an input page and press the middle button. Voila, the text copy is pasted. This cut out a few clicking. I love this feature. I don't know how to reconfigure a Logitech (or Microsoft) mouse under Linux.
(Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse, purchased on Jul 15 2015 - Amazon informs me, was not a good replacement, and it's dying a miserable death.).
This Classic is not as responsive or accurate as Revolution, or I have not got used to it. It was cheap when I finally got it (~ $30; ~ $60-70 when I put it on a wish list). It is not high enough for comfortable holding. The back button, which I use far more than the forward one, I have to search with the thumb. The forward one has a noticeable bump. With the way I hold the mouse, the thumb is naturally on it. To get at the back button is a bit of contortion for the thumb. 'Wired' does not do much for me. In fact it kinda gets in the way.
There is a new version (Microsoft NGX-? Pro IntelliMouse, ~ $80). It did not come up when I was ordering this one. If it had come up, I would have gotten it instead. It's been available for a few months.
