Excerpt: The mouse is of good quality. with microsoft's 5 year replacement warranty if it ever goes out, it can be quickly replaced by microsoft. the tracking is pretty good. the weight distribution of the mouse if one were to get really picky, could be better for gaming, but for regular tasks, it is pretty good. not too heavy and not oto light. the battery life is pretty good, runs of of aa batteries. it will last three to six months. overall very good battery life.
Summary: Its a great mouse! Its very precise and it literally works on any surface, from your lap to glass or a shiny surface. Its a fairly big mouse, which is great for us with big hands! It comes with a custom program that allows you to customise the Left, Right, Middle and the two thumb buttons and assign them to a long list of actions. The wireless aspect of it is great, the dongle isn't the smallest around but it causes no problems.
Summary: This mouse is so much more comfortable than a standard mouse. It's also more precise than a standard mouse. Comes with a sleek charger and a battery. Just slightly irritating when your thumb accidentally hits the side buttons. Other than that, I really like the mouse.
Summary: Seems to be a decent mouse, I'm just getting my hand used to it. The shape and size fits my palm nicely, the click is responsive and pleasant, and the scroll-wheel isn't as bad as I expected (I don't use horizontal scrolling though). Intellipoint software is simple but allows for all the customization I need, and by tweaking it a little I've attained my preferred sensitivity easily. Now it is precise and you only need a tiny space to cover whole screen.
Its good , but not as good as the old MS explorer.

Summary: Pros : Tracking is excelent , works on surfaces laser mice wont. mouse ergonomics are fine for me - (male large hands). doesnt have the bluetooth 'wake' lag. works from other side of room no problems. comes with rechargeable battery - standard AA nimh type. Excelent build quality. Cons: occasionly will miss a button click (maybe 1 in 500). scroll wheel spins freely , has no 'notches' to let you feel how much rotation. you might sever a limb opening the packaging.
