Good interim mouse!

RL_Aviation, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Small in size and louder than a more expensive mouse. Would be a great travel mouse! I will keep this for travel and buy a larger mouse in the near future.

Decent no frills mouse, cheap price.

UX12, Amazon
25 April 2015
  • Summary: A basic mouse, bought a bunch for work to replace failed Dell OEM optical mice. The button travel is fairly long and the click is slightly louder than most mice I've dealt with (but I actually like that). Scroll wheel works well and the cord has ample length to reach to PCs placed under the desk.

Yes you are smart enough to come across a microsoft mouse

  • Summary: Yes you are smart enough to come across a microsoft mouse. This Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse is indeed black and traces movements. If you need an ordinary mouse look no further. This mouse is the most extraordinarily ordinary mouse I have ever used.

Left/Right click..a Little loud. Wheel, quiet. Good Mouse for price.

Sir_RUSH, Amazon

  • Summary: It does have a louder *click* sound than many Mice I've used. The Scroll Wheel is quiet. It does well for normal stuff as well as games. I'm using 1920x1080 resolution and it's doing well with it. It fits in my hand very well, and I have a large to medium hand. Wink!

These Microsoft mice squeak when clicking. Usually Microsoft mice do what are suppose to, but better than others. Not this time

  • Summary: Usually Microsoft mice just work and work well. These are not that great. I have one where I hear plastic squeaks when I press on the mouse buttons. Not that great.

This Microsoft optical wheel mouse model.

Zack S. Mitchell, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: The previous (Dell) mouse I was using on my Windows XP Pro PC would not allow Microsoft's "Intellipoint" software to configure the wheel-click option. Instead, I had gotten got a message that said you must be using a Microsoft brand mouse for this configuration to be applied.

An expensive "basic" wired mouse that should be better made and not so pricey.

  • Excerpt: There is nothing worse, when away for a week and you take your laptop with you when your cherished wireless Mac mouse develops a fault. Such was the case that happened to me when visiting friends and went down to London.

Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse - Black

Columbia, pricebat.ca
10 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Does what it is supposed to do. Too light and too little. If you want a incredibly tiny, light mouse, this is for you. If you want a bit much more substance, decide on the older MS model with the red light in the rear.

Not as good as I expected

Tim, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: Having used the basic optical MS mouse before I was happy with it. This one is smaller in size (meaning your hand is much bigger than the mouse and falls around it), feels cheap (light plastic which feels empty inside), and the mouse-click noise is much stronger than the old basic MS optical mouse.

OK - just

Donald Macgregor, Amazon

  • Summary: The pointer and buttons are fine, but the wheel is not very positive - a bit loose. Works OK, but not a smooth as some. Reasonable for the price
