Cons

quite expensive

12 agree

Scroll wheel isn't a middle click, it goes into a free-wheeling mode. Not a "Real" Con but different.

8 agree

800 DPI provides poorer accuracy compared to newer mice

4 agree

SetPoint software sometimes buggy, heavy

2 agree

Scroll wheel eventually sticks, due to dirty and rubber expansion.

2 agree

uses 2.4GHz RF band, prone to/creates wireless interference

1 agrees

battery cannot be replaced, you have to be without a mouse until logitech replaces it (unless you DIY voiding your warranty/after warranty period)

1 agrees

Primary button may not register normal clicks or double-clicks instead after a few years of usage and wear

1 agrees

On a dirty surface the feet wear very quickly. (best use on a good mousepad that only polli)

My advice with this mouse is to download ├╝beroptions, it gives you way more freedom to change the options and customize the buttons for any piece of software.
 This makes it a great working mouse in specialized an advanced software. (and even gaming)

The mouse-feed tent to wear very quickly of a dirty surface, but when used on a good and clean surface they get pollished and result in really smooth sliding. When you wear them out, you can send local Logitech a mail, at leas here in Europe they send you new feed for free.

PS. The silver search button behind the scrollweel is usefull as a middle-mouse-button if you (like me) don't want to lose the scrollmode-switching. But it is a little to far back to be easy to use. So if you need it a lot in a program, it is best to assign one of the 'back/forward' buttons as middle-mouse-button for the specific program.

I have gone through two of these mice and I have had the same problem with both of them. The first one on my system was great up until about a year after I purchased it when I noticed the motion starting to lag and also sometimes when trying to select something the mouse would automatically release the drag - very annoying! It progressively got worse and I ended up sending it in to Logitech under warranty. Logitech said it was defective and replaced it and everything was good again. So now it's been about a year since I've been using the replacement and I'm starting to notice a lag again that is again progressively getting worse. The good thing is that Logitech does give a 3 year warranty on the mouse but it's a pain to have to send it in again. I really love the mouse cause it's really functional, quick to respond (usually), looks nice, fits my hand perfectly...I just don't know what's up with the lagging problem.
