Unhappy Microsoft Mouse

god damn mouse

can you belive after 2 months my new Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer is giving me trouble... not the optical camera, but the left mouse button.. sometimes it randomly double clicks, other times it does nothing...

anyone else had trouble with this particular model? My older MS Optical was great...

Im still using the original M$ Inteliexplorer, must be what? three years old now and cost me £50 at the time. If you have a problem, I would take it back and change it.

ive just been to change it and after half an hour of hassle.. finally got another one...

can you belive the guy in PC World.. he tested the mouse for 30 seconds, said it seems fine, and handed it back!! I tried explaining that the fault was intermittant, but he didnt seem to understand what I was talking about...

I had to get the guys supervisor along to understand my quibble... eventually he changed it...

useless people

i've had to thrown away two microsoft intellimouse, the usb connector eventually gets ****ed up by using the ps2 adaptor, and just won't work in the usb anymore. and another one just by regular usage, and couple bangs and the mouse doesn't work. yet i still use one ms intellimouse for a couple months now and it works perfectly. i have a memorex, and two other 5 dollar optical mouses, and they work just as good.

You know what? I have that exact same problem, though its so rare I usually ignore it. Sometimes the wheel will scroll even though I'm not touching it.

Very disturbing, like a ghostly hand is having his jollies scrolling my wheel just when I'm about to click on a weblink. I thought it was just me.

LOL!

I use both the intellimouse3(home) and logitech mouseman(work) and have had no problems at all even though both have been abused to some degree. Has anyone played w/ the new M$ Intelli Cordless/Optical? I'm curious to see if the response times have improved at all to be sufficient enough to game w/. I'm really getting tired of this stupid cable
