As a connoisseur of fine mice and mousing accessories, I find the low price and high feature set something I cannot pass up, resist as I may... Really, you can't buy a simple Microsoft mouse for that price. All it needs to do is work and it's a great deal. Trust me, once you've used a laser mouse, everything else is like pushing a brick around. I've used Razer and Logitech laser gaming mice, so maybe I give this as a gift to my parents if it isn't all that I want it to be. They won't know what hit them. Signed, doting son.
