    "If you like to have an awful lot of stuff bound to buttons on your mouse, this certainly gives you a lot to work with. One consequence of having so many buttons is that they're pretty small and it could be fairly easy to accidentally hit the wrong one or hit more than one. It's also wireless with only a 10.5 hour battery life when new, so if you're on the computer all day that'll be a major pain for you especially down the line."
