With a fingertip grip, you want a sensitive mouse (high DPI) and you'll also tend to increase OS mouse motion sensitivity, so twitching your fingers a centimeter can send the cursor flying several inches across the screen. I find that these types of small mice along with my grip greatly reduce the wrist strain I get with larger mice and the "palm grip" requiring you to move your wrist and entire arm. And if my index finger get tired from clicking, the mouse is small enough that I can shift my grip just slightly and click the left button with my middle finger.
I would not say this mouse was particularly built for gaming, but it's worked fine for me for almost two years so far and I don't bother with the side button, nor do I click the middle button.
I appreciate that the scroll is smooth and not "clicky" while scrolling.
The only downside is that the current price is pretty high for a laptop mouse, but I think that's because this is now discontinued...which means I'd better buy another.
Added on the 12th
Well, I kept looking - downloading this and that from the Microsoft site until something worked. I had to download the software for this device. It is a plug and play but for some reason the 4th button would only do a 'go forward' function and I wanted the magnifier. After I downloaded the new software, there was a different 'settings' window that offered me many selections for each button. Now I truly love this little thing!
P.S. I forgot to tell you about the magnifier and scroll features:
The magnifier is a great add-on, with my vision, I would say it did about a 2 to 3 times the size of everything I looked at with it, great for baby boomer with a little trouble seeing small print..
the scroll may take a little time getting used to because with a regular scroll you just scroll (up and down),it's the same way, however to scroll (side to side) you have to push the scroll wheel a little to the side and it scrolls. I love these features...
I like the feel of this mouse. It's got some weight to it which is nice. It still glides smoothly all over the place, but it feels like I'm in control of it more than I felt with my previous super-lightweight mouse. It's a more substantial mini-mouse than other minis out there. It seems solidly constructed and it's quite attractive (cuter in person).
The shape of this mouse, with it's sloped back end, is extremely comfortable to my hand, as well. I've come to prefer the smaller netbook/notebook size mice -- I think they're ideal for a lot of women.
I love the smooth scroll wheel. Finally, freedom from clickity-clickity-clickity restrictions. It allows me to scroll up and down a page so quickly and naturally. This will now be a feature I'll always look for in a mouse.
Four programmable buttons is pretty fabulous for a little inexpensive mouse, too. I'm very pleased I decided on this mouse (and I spent HOURS researching them -- yeah, my life is THAT exciting).
I am not usually a fan of extra mouse buttons, but the little side button on this mouse is something I use a lot. Its default operation under Windows is to magnify the area of the screen around the mouse. It works great for that.
I dual-boot my laptop, and the mouse works well in both Windows and Fedora 18 Linux. I was able to reprogram the side button with the standard Linux mouse utility. I didn't get it to magnify, but on Linux I have it programmed to swap workspaces (alternate desktops) which proves to be extremely handy.
