Rated 5 out of 5 by tuxd3v from The best mouse I ever saw Very beautiful mouse, in 2 colors. Cord retractable is a very nice way. USB conector holds behind the mouse with magnetic fix. What to say, no battery needed, no extra space required, the best mouse I saw til date!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EC from Still works after two years I am reviewing after 2 years of using this mouse 3 to 5 days a week. This mouse was nice at first. From the first day I took care to keep the wire from being stressed at the plug or at the mouse by always having extra cord out when I am using it. When I pull out the the cord or retract it. I keep the wire straight inline with the small hole where it winds into. this keeps from dragging against the walls and has helped to keep from cracking the sheath. an important step is to always leave the cord out about a 1/4 inch more than needed when stowing the plug. I then let the mouse retract as I slide the plug into its pocket. The goal is to keep from pulling more cord out after it is wrapped around the corner of the mouse. My mouse has been having issues with the scroll wheel for some time now. it's 2 years old. But this kind of issue isn't very nice to work with. Because the scroll wheel has no clicking action, when I remote desktop I almost always scroll the wrong way for one "click" then it goes the correct direction. It doesn't seem like much, but I don't have this issue with other mice. This gets aggravating because I use the mouse heavily in my work. so when I see it going the wrong way, I compensate. and of course, since it was just the first click that went the wrong way, now I'm rolling the wheel opposite of what I wanted. Another gripe is the grip coating on the bottom half. It's that newfangled rubberizing texture that lots of tools and devices have these days. My got gummy and started to peel in less than a year. Yeah, I know I normal. But why put a coating on the product that will detract from the user experience in only 6 months to a year. I don't like sticky mice. and yes I did wash my hands regularly. and no I wasn't eating at my computer. Nor was this because a someone using the wrong cleaners on the mouse. it happens on every single device or tool I have ever owned that had this coating. Even my car's dash had the same coating. and it peeled off after a while. It just wasn't worth the effort to coat in the first place. And the aftermath is yucky. If you want a full size travel mouse with no hassle from batteries. I would still buy this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marcelo from Worst mouse ever At first time I can say that I used to agree with the other customers opinion (beautiful, big size compared with others retractable wired mice, magnetic fix, no battery needed), but after 6 months of usage appeard a cut at the cover of the mouse wire, some weeks later another cut appeard and so on. When 9th cut appeard the mouse didn't work no more. I am a civil engineer and used to use the mouse specially for drawing on my laptop. I made a complaint to Targus explainning what was wrong with the mouse and they just answer that I made and unauthorized repair on the mouse (I put silicone to avoid broken of the wire, by the cuts the wire was too flexibly) and they can't honor the Warrancy Policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimmy from Could be better. This mouse is uncomfortable. I hate the slick glossy feeling it has. The striped sides are super discomfortable. Works well so far but we will see how it holds up. The scroll doesn't work half the time. Wouldn't suggest to anyone. The only good thing is the size

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric from Scroll Wheel does not "click" when scrolling I had a very old Targus Retractable Cord that I presume is no longer being made (unless the AMU75US is the same as the PAUM014/H3003 model and was very happy with the model. Many people commented on its size. So when I bought 2 of the AMU76US mice, I believed that the scroll wheel "clicked" when scrolling, but I learned that the feature is not available on that or the AMU75US model(s). Nonetheless, I will keep the mouse I have and the one that needs to be sent out (I returned 2 mice and only received 1) and will work without the "click"
