Microsoft Explorer 5-button wireless mouse, now I have two
9 September 2012
Excerpt: We have two computer in our home but I am the only one who had this Microsoft Explorer 5-button wireless Blue Track Scroll Mouse. Had it for several months but when my mothers roller ball mouse went south, I knew that the only mouse to get her was this Microsoft mouse. I cannot say too much about it. It does exactly what you tell it to do. Very easy scrolling, page back function, left & right click functions, and magnifying function.
Summary: I'm still using this mouse nearly daily for work, still flawless, still precise, and quite simply the most comfortable thing you will ever hold in your right hand. It is a fairly big tool this, and doesn't have a lot of buttons, so its no gaming mouse, but it is a sound and beautiful everyday mouse for the home or office. Throw in the wireless ability and the fact it will track on glass or paper or whatever and you have an unbeatable product.
Summary: Let's start with the main consideration, value for money. Very good price for a Microsoft product, and a very good mouse. Fits the hand perfectly and has very accurate movement. I have already recommended this to several friends. Runs perfectly with Windows 7 Home Edition.
Summary: This blue track mouse is excellent, it replaces a Logiteck Bluetooth mouse which took ages to wake up & didn't work on most surfaces, unlike this mouse which instantly wakes & works on virtually any surface. Also the batteries last for ages, at least 2 weeks before needing recharging on the base for a while, the Logiteck needed recharging every night! Zoom function & page back buttons are very useful too. Buy one, you wont be disappointed.
Summary: This wireless mouse is an absolute pleasure to use. It looks wonderful, the glossy left and right buttons compliment the comfortable, rubbery outer rim and "Microsoft" isn't slapped all over it. It feels great in the hand, but is certainly for right handed users only - those who use their left hand for the mouse will find this very uncomfortable. Some have been saying that the mouse is a little bit big, however I disagree.
