I bought two of these on the strength of excellent reviews, and both work perfectly. Very easy to install and both Mac and PC compatible. I'm on a Mac, so setup is merely a case of (when prompted), drag the slider to the left (if you only want to format for Mac), click install and it's done.

On the strength of reliability, I will definitely buy a third.

2. Battery life is appalling. The best I've found are Duracell, but even two of these will last little more than a couple of weeks (I turn the mouse off at night).
3. I work in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator (CS6), and I cannot find any way to turn the scroll movement of the mouse off; (I'm not talking about the 'swipe between pages' feature). My previous mouse was able to disable… Read more
