Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Has a programmable extra button
The blue side button can be programmed to open the Start Menu, display the Task View, virtual desktops, or start Cortana.
Pro Works well on all surfaces
This mouse works much better than most laser-sensor mice on glass, wood, and laminate surfaces thanks to the Microsoft's proprietary sensor technology called BlueTrack.
Pro Works on other devices besides Windows
Although this mouse is made by Microsoft primarily for Windows OS, it will also work on Mac, Linux, Android and ChromeOS but with certain limits. Most notably, the Start menu button does not work on non-Windows devices.
Pro Alleviates wrist strain
The shape of the mouse makes it very convenient to use even for hours on end. It provides very good support to the base of your palm, while the fingers can rest on the buttons without straining your wrist.
Pro Scrolls content both vertically and horizontally
The mouse wheel can scroll the content both vertically and horizontally. If you need to scroll from left to right or vice versa, just tilt the scroll wheel sideways. This is very handy if you work with close-ups of documents, images, or web pages.
Con Right-handed only
This mouse is designed specifically for right-handed people. There is no left-handed version of the mouse.
Con Has some connectivity issues
If you leave the mouse inactive for too long, it may sometimes take a pretty long time to reconnect.
Con Inconvenient placement of the Start menu button
The Windows Start menu button is located right where you rest your thumb, often causing accidental clicks. And there is no way to deactivate this button in the settings.
