Cool 4D Scrolling Mouse

Guys,

Got a question. What do you guys think of the 4D scrolling optical mouse? I see IOGEAR has something called Web Cruiser, is it any good?

Thanks.

Well, besides it is very similar to a regular optical mouse, the 4D scrolling feature is quite convenient for viewing large spreadsheet documents or zooming in or out of pictures.
Have you ever used it before?

i dunno. seems like a waste. i would just get a logitech mx510 if you like wired or a mx700 or mx1000 laser mouse if you like wireless.

Hmm... Maybe.
I was just reading the reviews, and it seems like 50/50.

This is just another way of advertising products with features nobody will ever really need.
