Summary: After going through the headache of downloading the software from hp. The mouse works great.
Pros: allows use of a mouse without using a usb port on the laptop.
Cons: windows 7 and 8. You must have a Microsoft WiFi virtual port installed and enabled. The included software that came with mine did not work. Had to download newest software from HP. Do not install the download on top of current software, it won't install. Uninstall included software first, update ...
Summary: I really liked this mouse until I got a Window's 8 computer not thinking to see if it was compatible. When using on my Win 7 computer it was very nice not having to plug anything in or worry about wires.
Summary: I recently, finally, upgraded to Windows 7 ~ I like the format better than I thought would because of all of the WiFi applications ~ my computer is a laptop. We travel south in winter, and travel north for the summer; so convenient to have everything WiFi ~ don't miss the cords.
Not perfect, but a very good little pointer that doesn't hog USB...

Summary: This is my second HP WiFi mouse -- I liked the first one THAT much. I actually purchased this new mouse for my dad, to go along with a new laptop we gave him for his birthday. I'm currently using the mouse on a Lenovo E420 running Windows 7 Home Premium 64.
Summary: It works and it is super cheap. I use this on a windows 8 tablet *Dell Venue 11 Pro*. I just goggled hp wireless mouse driver and downloaded the application from hp support (as my tablet doesn't have a DVD drive).
Summary: I can't say if this is the best way to do it, but it worked for me. Here's how: The issue I think has to do with the fact that in Windows 8 and 8.1 the ad hoc networking (softAP) has been discontinued.
The plus is that it works MUCH better than any of the Bluetooth mice/devices I've used

Summary: HP really should update the driver/software/firmware to make the mouse more compatible with Windows 8/8.1. As it is the only downside is the Back button doesn't work. The plus is that it works MUCH better than any of the Bluetooth mice/devices I've used.
Summary: Like others, I bought this mouse because it didn't require a dongle. My computer does not have built in Bluetooth so a Bluetooth mouse was not an option. The mouse worked fine but when coming out of sleep mode, the mouse took FOREVER to reconnect.
