I've had this mouse for quites ome time and it has been performing admirably. The chord is long enough and has never been an issue. The red light is really cool looking as well. The IR system insures much better accuracy and durability when compared to my old ball mouse. For you most basic needs this mouse should be perfectly fine for basic computer users and casual gaming. I have recently upgrade my mouse to a mx518 and this mouse has found a new job working with my laptop. Even though the laptop is of Apple origin the mouse is still working fine. The only gripes I would have with the mouse is that it can get fairly dirty but that isn't really the mouses fault. Just make sure to clean it now and than. The Standard two buttons click fine and the Roller wheel is awesome and totally a requirement for mice these days.
