Bought this for my father (78)...

DaveAZ, Amazon
15 July 2008
  • Summary: His fingers are too wrinkly to register making the finger print reader useless for him. It works fine for me although I find it a little slow to respond sometimes.

great fingerprint security and wireless mouse kit

Markcm "Markcm", Amazon
18 November 2007
  • Summary: I gave this kit a four only because the scroll wheel on the mouse does not have detents; it rolls way to freely without clicks which makes it hard to control at times. For example, a when trying to scroll through a drop down list, the lack of a clicking feature causes you to jump several selections at a time. the mouse is rather large but it is comfortable for me. The 5 buttons are programmable and positioned ergonomically well.

My opinion has changed...

Francisco D'Anconia, Amazon
15 November 2007
  • Summary: I once rated the fingerprint reader very highly....when I was running IE6. Now, with Internet Explorer 7 it plainly does not work. It will crash the app every time. MS sent out an updated driver that fixed the problem only on IE6, so until they decide to fix the problem, I'm stuck with a glowing red paperweight. Another issue that I have is that it doesn't work with other browsers. Another way MS can monopolize the market.

doesn't work with all the programs

cary, Amazon
23 August 2007
  • Summary: When I saw this product on amazon, I really liked it, more so for the price. However, I hardly use the fingerprint reader now. Reason: it doesn't work with Windows logon*, MSN messenger and Firefox.... oh did I tell you that Windows and MSN messenger were also made by Microsoft? *I can log on to windows using fingerprint reader when I first start the computer, but not when login screen appears after a screensaver.

Unreliable, Problems with security and info

MasterTech4523 "CambridgeTech", Amazon
20 June 2006
  • Summary: I have this reader and the APC Bio-something. And the APC is sooo much better. I find myself teaching this reader my password 9 times out of 10, and using it only shortly after. Perhaps a software issue. Either way, you shouldn't have to think about it. The APC, I am never worrying about...I know it's there and ready. Too late to return this - but beware.

Nifty gadget w/excellent mouse

Hellboy, Amazon
15 February 2006
  • Summary: First off, let me say that the price is more than worth it just for the mouse (I got mine for about $35). It has side scrolling, which was new for me, and really nice. The other great thing are the programmable thumb-side buttons, which I have set for Back/Forward--really handy for web surfing. It's a comfortable fit for the average hand.

Might crash your system

T. M. Taylor, Amazon
28 October 2005
  • Summary: Mouse functioned properly, however, soon after installation, my computer would crash upon attempt to shut system down. Mouse and biometric device have their own software. Removed biometric device software, no more crashes. Conversed with Microsoft Tec. (polite fellow from India). His help consisted of nothing more than reading from the manual that came with product. Suspected biometric device was defective. Tried new device. Same system crashes.

Pretty cool

J. Hicks, Amazon
24 October 2005
  • Summary: I am just an average user, I check my email and casually surf. I probably average an hour or two a day and I think this thing is super! I got it so I could monitor my child's (15 year old) computer and internet use use. She was getting pretty good at figuring out my passwords. Another plus is I don't have to type in my passwords all the time to sites I visit regularly (i.e. shopping sites, my email,...etc.).

Good But For Two Problems

GreenStar, Amazon
25 September 2005
  • Summary: The Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer with Fingerprint Reader would truly be a 5 star product if it didn't have a serious problem. The problem is that using the wheel button (with the setting changed so that its function is to close open windows) works erratically and does not work with all windows, especially Microsoft Office windows.
