Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000

The Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse 5000 is a transceiver-free wireless laser mouse. Because it connects using Bluetooth, it frees us USB ports and it functions as a single unit. The mouse measures 2.28 x 3.68 inches (W x H) and has an ergonomically sculpted design that is complemented by soft-grip sides allowing for better comfort and control. The design is also symmetrical so it is suitable for both left and right-handed users.

The Bluetooth Mouse 5000 features Microsoft’s High Definition Laser technology that delivers a movement resolution of 1000 dpi on almost any surface.

The ambidextrous mouse offers 4 buttons. Apart from the standard left and right mouse button, it has a clickable scroll wheel and a back button. Through the scroll wheel, users can navigate documents, spreadsheets, and web pages without having to use the on-screen scroll bar. The back button allows for easier navigation between folders and web pages. It can also be used to auto-scroll.

The Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse 5000 is compatible with Bluetooth-enabled computers equipped with Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X 10.2.6 or later.

The mouse is powered by two AAA alkaline batteries that can last up to 3 months. This battery life can be extended by making use of the on/off button located at the bottom of the mouse. A battery status LED located below the scroll wheel allows users to monitor battery life. This battery life indicator glows red when the battery is running low.

    should this mouse have a red light for the laser technology? I'm on my second mouse, no red light on either, can't get it to work on my Windows7 laptop. Don't know if its a connection problem or a laser malfunction.
