Dexxa Optical Wheel Mouse User ReviewsPC
Poor shape is uncomfortable to use. The shape alsot causes me to accidentally press the forwards and backwards buttons. The moue periodically dies under windows and has to be unplkugged and replugged to get it to work again. After owning the mouse for a couple of years, whenever I click with the left mouse button, windows registers a double click which is very annoying.Summary:
Poor reliability means that people should pass over this mouse and invest in a more expensive model from Microsoft or Logitech.
Size, Weight, Optical Sensativity and Extra ButtonsThe bad:
Shape, Physical Shell qualitySummary:
My review of this product will be mainly compared to the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer.
I own both the Dexxa and MS optical mouses and both seen to function properly, without any problems under regular Windows operations. The basic shape of the Dexxa is fine, and made with the ambidextrous (sp?) in mind (Maybe thats where the "Dex"xa name came from?). The scroll wheel's clickable feature is welcomed. It has worked on almost EVERY surface I have tried it on. The only surface was one of those plastic interlaced surfaces, you know, where if you look at different angles, you see diff...
It's a light-weight mouse with excellent precision.
I love it. It works on every material i tested.
It dont need to have some drivers installed!
Without the drivers that was in the package you cant program the 5th button (right). But who cares, the drivers in the package made my mouse go its on way and clicking. but without them it's OK.Summary:
I bought it because of the price. And it's the best buy i ever made.
Before, I had a Logitech MouseMan+, it was great but it cost $35. this dexxa i bought for only $16. whoho!
On one machine (Win2000 Advanced Server) it worked great! Not a glich, never even istalled drivers for it! Maybe THAT's why it works so well!The bad:
Diffrerent mouse (same model) freezes and double-clicks randomly (like mentioned in other e-mails)Summary:
Since I bought two of the same mice (one for work and one for home) I found that only one of them acts wierd. It does act wierd on BOTH machines though, so I think it's the hardware. I will try to get a refund or replace it, but it seems that that will both are impossible. If anyone has a number I can reach Dexxa at please let me know. Bottom line. You get what you pay for!
The optical sensor works fine so far.The bad:
No game compatible for first person shooters.Summary:
This mouse really sucks: In Windows the left mouse button clicks "at its own discretion": You want a single-click - the mouse produces a double-click.
But the worst thing: As already mentioned: When you use a keyboard and the mouse (first person shooter) my dexxa mouse makes the hero run without stopping. Or: the view goes up and cant be centered anymore!
But: When my mouse freezes I simply disconnect the mouse a moment. Then it works fine again. I dont need to reboot.
If anyone knows help on these problems, please mail me !!
Good buy for the bux, nice to have extra buttons for gamersThe bad:
works bad on my wodden desk, fixed by putting a white paper on it, it's perfect nowSummary:
I was amazed by the price, and I was told by the retailer I could try it at home if I'd wanted to, so I gave it a try, it's very similar to microsoft's one, but kinda cheaper. The two main buttons won't always *click* depending on where you press, side buttons are on my thumbs, making the moving of the mouse click the two side buttons, but you get used to it. Paint is fine (it doesn't peal) and the wheel is very smooth (cool). The software is ok, and the zooming function was a good idea (tough I got no use for it). Could have customized the functions on the side buttons a bit more. Assuming...
