I use it for:
* Internet browsing: back and forward buttons, and zoom
* Finale: zoom, and back/forward for measure navigation.
* Minecraft: using back/forward to switch between my sword and bow slots. Zoom switch is too hard to activate quickly.
* SW:KOTOR: B/F, search button and tilt for in-world actions. Zoom for equipment and status screens.
* Desktop/Dashboard switching (tilt switch, and rarely the search button for Exposé)
How I use it:
* Powered by NiMH AA battery. I recharge it every 3-4 weeks. When the battery dies, the mouse just stops working, in the middle of dragging or something.
* Never use the power button except when traveling.
* No mouse pad.
* Microgear (wheel detents/clicking) engaged, always. I used to try without the clicking, but I would keep brushing it by accident and the amount of control required to scroll was annoying.
* Configured using ControllerMate (also drives my Nostromo n52). I used to use the Logitech drivers, but they interfered with ControllerMate and it was harder for me to configure many different applications in comparison. And, I could control the scrolling rate more exactly and test more easily using ControllerMate.
* Wireless! And still good polling rate.
* Back and forward buttons are in easy reach.
* Tilt switch is extremely convenient.
* Tap the power button on the bottom to see the battery level, right on the mouse. The meter will be red when it's time to replace the battery.
* Internal caddy for storing the wireless transceiver.
* Tracking is better than most optical mice.
* The wheel feels really nice!
* Even when the Microgear is engaged, the detent-ing is soft. This lets you spin really fast and have the wheel carry through a full revolution or two before stopping. To scroll even further, disable the Microgear to eliminate detent friction. But, if engaged, the detents are still strong enough to hold the wheel is place, even against accidental brushing, tilt-switching and most middle-clicking.
* No charge port. You have to remove the battery to recharge it.
* Battery life estimate (in days, from the software) is inaccurate (for NiMHs).
* The metal body of my MacBook Pro interfered badly with the signal. I used a USB extension cable to avoid it. Now, I have it plugged into a hub, and I almost forgot that I ever used to have issues with interference.
* The zoom slide switch is hard to actuate. Instead of the mushy sliding action (sliding away from you is especially hard, since the spring is rather stiff), I'd have preferred simple buttons. And, it doesn't click for tactile feedback, or give analog values. It's just a mushy two-way switch.
* The search button is hard to reach. I'd rather have it above the scroll wheel than below, where I have to curl my finger really hard to reach it.
* The left click button wore out after 2.5 years of use, and began to double-click unexpectedly. I opened up the mouse, desoldered the left mouse switch and put in a replacement. Works fine now.
* The Microgear engagement switch is on the bottom of the mouse, and inconvenient to switch. And, although there is an electrical switch to detect when the Microgear is engaged, this is not exposed to the computer. You can't configure different scroll speeds when the the Microgear is engaged and when it is not.
* Middle-click is rather heavy for me. I hardly use it, for fear of scrolling during the click, even with the Microgear engaged.
* The back/forward and search buttons are all tact switches, rather than mechanical like the click buttons.
* The mouse is a bit small for my hand. Rather than my preferred palm grip, I have to use a fingertip grip.
* The Mac configuration software, although it allows per-application configuration, does not allow partial copying between configurations, and there is no way to let default settings fall through to custom-configured applications. Whenever I change the default config, I have to individually reconfigure my other programs too.
For the features, expensive! Instead, take a look at the Logitech G700s (hybrid wired/wireless), the Razer Naga Epic (hybrid wired/wireless), or the plain Razer Naga [Hex] (wired). All of these work with Mac, and have better software. My next mouse will probably be one of these.
Overall, a great mouse!
UPDATE to review: Mouse still working great 01/19/2014. BUT after many years of using a mouse I was getting/got mouse elbow(same as tennis elbow). So I bought a bigger mouse Logitech Performance MX and a mouse pad with a wrist support. (Gave this one to room mate who likes it also). New MX has all these features and more. BUT IS A FULL SIZE MOUSE. It was also cheaper in price then this mouse (on sale). I will give a review on it in a few months. I still stand behind this mouse's original review I gave it. But do not agree with the price increase for a mouse NOT made any more.(MUST BE A CLASSIC?)
