Pros: Bluetooth, accurate, good connection, pretty ergonomic.
Cons: Scroll wheel button is a little too easy to press imo, but you get used to it so that you dont accidentally press down on it when scrolling, it's probably because the mouse is considerably smaller than my old one, like I said, just gotta adjust. The back
Pros: Great Battery life with standby mode. Syncs immediate after it turns on. Responsive. No need for a Bluetooth adapter if your computer has Bluetooth built in. Easy to use and sync. Lots of buttons.

Pros: Feels great in my hand, the buttons and scroll wheel function really nice. Small size and quick, reliable pairing makes this a great match to a laptop with bluetooth built-in.
Cons: Why does Microsoft sell a mouse without driver support? Others here have commented that buttons cannot be reassigned, which is correct, but doesn't tell the whole story. The wheel button, for example, can't even be made to have default functionality.
Summary: I have owned a lot of mice in my day, but this one is the best I have ever owned. I have use other Microsoft Mice, but none have acted or felt as good in my hand as this one. I love bluetooth and this mouse really works well. I have two, one for work and one for home. I love how it feels in my hand how it clicks (softly) and how it looks. It is small, so I can travel with it.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Great Features, Small, Works On Any Surface
