This is a good mouse, the lack of blinding red or blue light is certainly a benefit as this mouse has an invisible laser rather than your standard red or blue laser. It's a reasonably sized mouse which is beneficial for someone with hands as large as mine but not so large that someone with smaller hands is will find it uncomfortable or an inconvenience. I've not had any problems with cramping or any such ailments since using it.

I can't honestly speak for the durability of it as I don't tend to beat my computer mice up but for a mouse that's in and out of the computer bag and being used every day, durability does not seem to be a problem.

This mouse seems to be fairly accurate especially when using programs such as [[search=photoshop]]Photoshop[[/search]].

The features of this mouse include a four-directional tilt wheel (which is programmable with software downloaded from the Targus website). The retractable cable tucks nicely into a spot on the bottom of the mouse which makes stowing and transport much more convenient.

Overall, a very good mouse and very recommendable.
