    I need a wireless 2 button mouse with a scroll feature.

    Anyone using the Kensington StudioMouse? Is it comfortable? Everyone raves about the M$ and Logitech mice--should I give up the nice styling of the Kensington for one of these?

    Or does the StudioMouse provide just as much comfort?

    Thanks.

    I just got a studio mouse 2 days ago, and am VERY pleased with it. Very comfortable in my opinion, the styling is great, the scroll pad and three buttons are a huge improvement over just one, and the charger cradle is very convenient. The only thing that i don't like about it is that it isn't bluetooth. But overall it's a great mouse.

    I use a studio mouse, I've had mine for abut 6 months now and while its a great mouse, it's not THAT comfortable. I before used a Logitech that was a really good shape for your hand, but the kensington is pretty flatly shaped. It is a good size however, and it's not uncomfortable to use, it's just not a good shape for comfort. I'd give it a 5 on a 1-10 comfort scale. I use the mouse at least 4 hours per day. The scroller works really well through, and the sides have a nice grip to them.

    Thanks for the great review. I just ordered the Studio Mouse from buy.com. They have a $20 mail in rebate so it will cost me about $48 with shipping. I'll give it a try and see if I like it.

    I just can't put a Microsoft mouse with my beautiful iMac! It just doesn't seem right...
