I like the ergo aspects and the ease of click along with the perfect scroll resistance. As long as you treat it like an adult, it will be around and dependable for a while. One can tell. I got two becasue they're THAT cool... Or becuse I am that cool....

good idea but doesn't last

 

The mouse works great and the retracable cord is very handy, but after two months of use the wire has broken and it no longer works.

NOT USABLE ON 17" Macbook Pro for Righty

 

Nice product but NOT USABLE ON 17" Macbook Pro for right-hand user because the retractable USB cable is too short. I'd buy 2 if Targus made the identical product with 6 more inches of cable!

quiet clicking precise tracking

unusable for righ-handed people on macbook pro 17
