I'm gonna rain on your parade. Big Grin | :-D Don't take it the wrong way, just expression my own personal view.

This is exactly the type of mouse I started purchasing after my last IntelliMouse died - I thought the extra buttons would come in handy, but instead over time I realized the fancier the mouse, the less useful the extra features tend to be - I'd often find myself accidentally hitting the extra buttons for example. I had one that had a button on top dedicated to changing the DPI setting on the fly - who needs to change that after it's been set once? (I didn't buy it for that reason)... Just as can happen with software, to me these were always cases of packing in extra features, at the cost of usability.

I could even do without my IntelliMouse's extra two buttons on its left side (mapped to the browser's Back/Forward buttons) - but fortunately they're not positioned in such a way that I ever hit them accidentally.

Of course YMMV, and it's perfectly reasonable for you to swear by yours. That's why there's different models. Smile | :) And that's why I'm happy "my" simpler model has made a comeback.
