Good Mouse But...


I picked this up to use for gaming. Although it's a good everyday mouse, it's not really a good choice for gaming. The middle wheel button is somewhat recessed which makes rolling it a little inconvenient if you use your wheel button for a specific...

Best mouse I've ever used


GE must have put out a new version of this mouse because the color is different, but this mouse works perfectly. It's now 2.4GHz, which I guess means it works from really far away, and works better. HAve zero problems with it, unlike the Logitech I had...

Don't think about it!


Liked the mouse until I started having problems with it (less than a week later). My scroll wheel doesn't work, and I've spent too much time troubleshooting it... Find a DIFFERENT mouse... Ur just wasting time looking at this one!

I have Vista home Prem , on my lap top and needed a second mouse .The product says it will work with Vista . Well after 3 tries. The drivers would not load. After 3 tries I finally took it back and a Logitech , which works great .

Pay a little more for something better


My sister bought this for use with our laptop and it started giving us trouble a couple of months down the line. The mouse and usb receiver are not travel-friendly.

Great Price! Great mouse!


I bought this exact mouse earlier this year at Target and we absolutely LOVE it. We haven't had a single problem with it. It never loses connection, it's comfortable to use, we love having a scroll button on it. It was easy to install, and we've just...
