Advantages: Quicker and easier to navigate around computer
Disadvantages: Sometimes gets dust inside tracking ball
Logitech is a name I trust for computer accessories, I find that there products last a long time and with proper care and maintenance there should be no reason for them to break (the good thing about this mouse is that there is no maintenance required.
I have had other brand names and even though I take care of my electronics and there accessories I still find that after a period of time they start to break down bit by bit (mouse starts to become less responsive, or buttons don't work altogether).
I find with electronics if you buy cheap, that is exactly what you have, a cheap product, so spend that bit more, get a product that will last a long while, I believe that to be Logitech.
This particular mouse is built for right handed users, your hand fits over it with absolute ease as if it were molded to you personally, the tracking ball (which is red) is located on the left for the thumb to navigate and the two buttons are located on the right fitting perfectly underneath your index finger and 2nd finger, in the middle of the 2 buttons is a scroll wheel that lets you scroll up and down and if you push down on the scroll wheel you hear a click which depending how you set it up allows you to use it as another function.
It connects to your computer via usb and when you plug it in it automatically installs a drive onto your computer so you don't have to worry about installing it yourself and to top it all off it is recognized by Mac, Windows, vista and new Windows 7.
You may be looking at this mouse and thinking "wow that's a big mouse" but you don't have to move this mouse around, it stays where it is and you just move the red tracking ball instead.
I bought this of the recommendation of a friend, I travel around a lot on planes in cars...etc so to have this mouse means I don't have to have a lot of room to maneuver this mouse because it doesn't move.
If you have been use to using the old fashioned mouse's then this one will take a while to get use to, it will feel very alien and unnatural, but once you have got the hang of it you will wonder how you did without it.
And what will be even more surprising is that when you go back to that old mouse for what ever reason you will find it cumbersome and a pain.
If you're a gamer you may find this mouse a lot better to control your characters with. In fact in general it is a lot easier and quicker to move around your computer with this mouse.
I have had this mouse for years and wouldn't change it for anything in the world, note of warning, if you find that after a while your tracking ball starts to feel harder to move with your thumb, remove the ball the way that it mentions in the little manual and just dust around it and a quick blow in the inside and when you replace the ball your problem will be resolved and you can carry on with what ever you were doing.
Like I said I have had it for years and I have maybe done that a handful of times.
At the moment it's on offer at Amazon for £29.18
