A few months ago I ordered a so called silent mouse – a product of a Japanese company called Thanko. Even though I do not regret my decision because I had a chance to check this product out, to all of you who think about purchasing this mouse I would like to say beware! Yes, of course, my working environment got more quiet because the mouse does not produce any sounds, but at what cost! After a few weeks the buttons became unresponsive. It is very small and very fragile. The middle mouse button stopped working long time ago and the right mouse button stopped reacting to my commands a few months after I bought the mouse. The left mouse button is still working although barely and I expect every day that it will stop functioning eventually. Next time I will simply buy a regular mouse. I will not care if it makes any click sounds or not.
