Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 8/10

This optical mouse from Microsoft is very nearly the ultimate mouse. It uses optical technology to sense movement. It takes thousands of readings per second firing its red light to determine its position. Without the traditional mouse mechanism, it moves more smoothly and does not require a special mousemat. In fact it works on any surface. In addition without so many moving parts it should last longer, and does not require as much cleaning. This special Intellimouse Explorer model, has wheel to scroll through documents. As well as the left and right mouse buttons, there are two buttons on the left of the mouse. You can configure these through the Intellimouse Explorer software. I choose to make them forward and backward buttons in Internet Explorer.

This is a good mouse especially with optical technology. It does however, not feel as well built as a Logitech mouse, with the forward and backward buttons wobbling slightly.
