Reviews and Problems with Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000

Summary: Mouse is easy to pair with computer and tablet, and work perfectly. I use it for gaming and regular work and have no problems except that the batteries are hard to get out when they need to be replaced but that is not worth lowering the rating over.
Summary: Other than the fact that the scroll bar SUX, the mouse itself is just fine. When I wake the computer, sometimes it takes a sec for the mouse to awaken, but that's fine. I wake the mac with one of the keys, then press one of the mouse keys a couple times, and I'm good to go. The mouse is kinda small, but I have no trouble with that. The Macbook Air only has 2 USB inputs, so this mouse saves me some hassle with USB hubs.
Summary: I've owned 3 of these mice over the last 4 years or so. Each one seems to only last about a year. They slowly start taking longer to pair and towards the end of their life, they start dropping out (lose their connection) more and more frequently until they finally won't connect to the computer at all. That first 9 months is pure bliss though. I would totally give this mouse a 5-star rating if they didn't inexplicably die after about 14 months.
Summary: I tried using this, and it seemed to work fine,but then sometimes, with heavy-duty cpu processing, and/or the large monitor I use, it seemed there was some sort of interference which affected the mouse. I had to put it away and use an older one. I might try it again some day, but it was disappointing.
