Ik vond net nog een review van de Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer. Deze is afkomstig van Scott's Hardware.
I hooked the Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer up to my system tying both the PS/2 and USB ports and found virtually no difference in perceived performance using one over the other. However, when using the USB port I did observe a slight decrease of my system resources, in the System Properties box, even though its effect wasn't readily apparent in use. Being of the performance biased crowd, I chose to stick with the PS/2 port.
Upon connecting the IntelliMouse Explorer and installing the software, and after admiring the cool red glow emitting from the mouse's bottom and rear side, I noticed an immediate improvement in tracking. The occasional jitteriness I experienced with my original IntelliMouse was absent, and positioning the curser in tight places became a breeze. I tried tracking on my desktop, mouse pad, pants leg, and several other surfaces immediately available to me, and noticed no loss of tracking or precision. This is truly a remarkable advance in mouse technology, especially considering the mouse is rarely considered an system upgrade unless it happens to die because it ingested too much dirt.
As I mentioned above, I really enjoyed the additional controls along the left side of the mouse, as it made scrolling through long web pages and documents a much simpler task. The scrolling wheel functions normally for scrolling, but the convenience of a whole screen down or back up at the click of your thumb was a big plus in my book. Also, as mentioned before, these buttons can be configured to other options such as cut and paste, delete, close, alt, or a number of other options, in case you don't like (or need) the default settings.
