At work, I spend most of my day on my desktop computer, so having decent equipment is very important to me. This year we upgraded our computers, and now our most recent computers are all from Lenovo, including the keyboard and the mouse.

For about 6-8 hour per day, I am typing on the keyboard and using my Lenovo Mouse, and I must say...it is good enough!
The Lenovo Mouse is a simple, yet attractive black mouse with a red scroll wheel. It is a very simple mouse with no extra function or features that more advanced mice have, yet I never notice, as I've only ever used basic mice. I don't like to get too comfortable with mice and their special features, and I spend many hours per day (at home or elsewhere) on my laptop, where I don't use a mouse at all.
The black plastic is slightly rough on the top, and smooth to the touch on the edges where my thumb and index finger rest, providing a good grip on the top, and a comfortable feel on the side. The red scroll wheel is dead-center, and provides easy access for my pointer finger to scroll to its heart content (and it loves to scroll in my many Excel spreadsheets!). The wheel provides a little resistance and a cheap, plastic-y scrolling sound, which I actually like. I prefer to see and hear feedback versus a silent, smooth scroll-wheel.
The buttons are not separate pieces that can wear out, they are simply the top of the case. The top has a slit down the middle, so you can easily press down on the left or the right side for the buttons, and it works great! With this mouse, I now tend to press with my last knuckle, versus bending my finger to press a button with my fingertip. I find this more comfortable.
The red last at the bottom is perfectly accurate for all of my business needs, and I can even use it on my semi-shiny wooden desktop without any mouse pad. I doubt that the precision would be great for some modern games, but this is a business workhorse, not a gaming machine.
Durability-wise, it has held up to being dropped, a little spill, having books dropped on it, and lots of bumping around. It seems very durable for day-to-day constant use.
And, my favorite feature: The really long cord! The really long cord makes it so that I do not miss my wireless mouse on my home desktop computer. Plus, with the amount of usage it gets, I'd be changing batteries constantly in a wireless! It is a USB connection and is quickly recognized by my system if I unplug it and plug it in.
The mouse itself is about 6-inches long and 2 inches high and fits very nicely in my hand. It is very light, at less than 9 ounces, and feels like fairly flimsy plastic, but so far has withstood my daily punishment. It doesn't really have pads on the bottom, so it makes a light scratching sound as it crosses my desk, but overall I'm pleased with it.
For a cheap, basic mouse, the Lenovo is a good mouse. It feels nice, looks nice, and does the job well without andy maintenance issues. If I needed a new mouse, I'd be happy to receive another one of these from IT.
