With 18 months of wireless power, it can be used in a variety of manners not handicapped by a wire.
Con Not extremely ergonomic
Not entirely fit for claw grips with small hands, and gets uncomfortable after a while.

Con Rubber grips get slippery with sweaty hands
When using the mouse for long duration's the sweat from the users hands can make the rubber side grips slippery.

The shell is very cheap, thin plastic and the button sensors are either far too easy to trigger (left/right click) or ridiculously hard (back/forward, middle button/wheel).
Con Really awkward with the left hand.
Doesn't really go both ways
