I believe I actually bought this mouse on the HP website some time ago. I had a free shipping offer that allowed me to get it for a decent price. I do like the laser option, and I'm really not picky about my computer mice. I just want to be sure that it doesn't stop up when I'm on Adobe Photoshop. I need a steady hand when I'm editing photographs, as I am a freelance photographer. It's basic, sleek appearance is attractive and matches both my laptop and my desktop. My laptop is HP as well, so it's like it came with the thing. If you're looking for a mouse to game with, or you're rather picky, don't go for this one. Upgrade because I'm sure it'll be worth the cost. Otherwise, if you just surf generally, pick the GW405AT.
