I'm pleased with this mouse, which I understood is slightly more compact from reading the description before buying. Some might prefer a bulkier design to maximise comfort, but for me this is nice enough. I don't use it for gaming but sometimes I'm using animation or other software for extended periods, and don't have any problems with it. It works very well and doesn't seem cheap at all despite the low price. Minor criticisms I can think of are 1. Plastic in the packaging from the manufacturer seemed excessive, 2. I would prefer the click to be a little quieter, if I were awake at night with thin walls to where others are trying to sleep, I would be conscious that it could be irritating for them, 3. The design at the front end looks a little susceptible to breaking if you dropped it on a hard surface and were particularly unlucky with how it landed. I have dropped it a couple of times when moving around and it was fine though. But overall it's a nice mouse, especially at the price paid.
