Perfect. Standard mouse. L/R click, scroll button w/click. No other buttons that all I ever do is hit by accident. Esp using them with my left. Symmetric design, good for left and right hand use. Reliable, no surprises. Does its job the way they used to. I have gone through 50 mice. That is only a slight exagerration. For some reason have them all in a box May offer on eBay "Box of dead mice".
This one restores my faith. Finally, they didn't fix what was not broken. Thank you.
May rival old school microsoft mouse, before they added the extra side to side clix on the scroll wheel, which for me just made it flakey. Doing things i did not intend.\
This one, I just forget i am using it, does the job. Long cord, at least 4ft. $5 appeals to my yankee thrift. Thank you, thank you. Thank you.
The blue lights are pretty cool. I sometimes go into my computer room with the lights off, and seeing the mouse lights helps, since I don't have many lights working in there.
Using the mouse is a little awkward. It's pretty small, and initially, it was jumpy and not very precise. I just dialed back the speed in the pointer control area. Seems to be better now, and I'm not doing anything that requires a lot of accuracy with the mouse.
For the price, I bought three, and I have only now started using one of them. I like having spares of the consumables, and a mouse is a consumable for me.
If it fit my hand better, I would have given it another star.
I've purchased the Blu Streak mouse before, and it has been rock-solid. I have one that still works great, even after more than a few years of regular use. We have all been the victim of the single-click turns into double-click malfunction, but this mouse hasn't gotten there yet, when so many others have (even after just a year of regular use). I will keep buying these mice from Monoprice, they are an excellent value!
I have purchased and used about 6 of these mice over the years. Yes they are inexpensive. Yes I have had one that makes noise when you spin the scroll wheel. The rest were and are quiet still. I have one that I use every day for work all day long and it gives me flawless performance. Not sure why people would complain about the quality. I've paid ten times as much as this and gotten the same or worse quality. I would highly recommend buying this mouse.
This mouse is no frills, but does exactly what it needs to do - it has the left and right buttons with a middle clickable scroll wheel. It is a smaller mouse - for me it is a "finger style" mouse as opposed to my MS Intellimouse that is more "palm style". I do not use this mouse as a daily driver - it is used with my Raspberry Pi and as a backup. It works great when called upon.
