    Apparently, people haven't been so happy with the mouse right out of the box, and installing the new drivers AND firmware (yes, this mouse needs firmware updates) is a hassle. The Microsoft Habu mouse has issues, and (unfortunately) only Microsoft has the answers.

    People really should test the claims on the box when writing a review. For example, while you can reprogram all the various mouse buttons, games may not recognize the new assignments, even if they are simple, single key presses. While Windows business applications will recognize my new assignments (Page Up & Page Down) for buttons 4 & 5, no game will see the buttons at all. Even Logitech managed to get games to recognize key presses assigned to mouse buttons.

    One thing is certain, however: It's a very smooth mouse. In games, you can immediately tell the difference between this mouse and other "gaming" mice, probably because the interpolling rate can be set as high as 1000 Hz.
