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.).
Summary: At first I was skeptical. Firgerprint reader at this price? I took a chance and am very pleased. The fingerprint reader alone is worth the price, let alone the addition of the wireless optical mouse. The fingerprint reader works really well. It's easy to make it remember your accounts and passwords. It's also very fast. No more frustrations in trying to keep up with an ever increasing number of passwords.
Summary: Glad I bought it; works great. Pretty intuitive. Play with it for 15 minutes and you've got it figured out. Running XP Home, I found it was unnecessary to install the included mouse driver. Negatives: NOWHERE - not in/on the box or the manual -do the geniouses at MSFT tell you that the FP reader is also the receiver for the mouse, so you look for a separate receiver in the box and assume it is missing.
Summary: Wow, another great piece of hardware by Microsoft, you cannot go wrong if you pick up this wireless mouse. Signal is strong, the mouse is very comfortable to use for hours upon hours, and the setup was a breeze. Yes, Logitech makes some nice keyboard/mice, but I always seem to prefer Microsoft's stuff. I don't want to support Microsoft but I find their hardware to be more comfortable and better design goes into their products.
Summary: I bought this mouse after an influencing review in a magazine called "PcGamer". They said it was the top end of mice out on the market. In my opinion it lives up to that review. I really like the programable button feature which allows to set the buttons to do different things in different applications. Unlike the programable middle button of many mice out there you can program all five buttons on this mouse.
Pros: The only thing that sucks is having to replace the batteries every couple of months.
Cons: The only thing that sucks is having to replace the batteries every couple of months.
Summary: Overall, the Intellimouse is very easy to setup, since it is USB, but mainly it doesn't have the little ball that gets dirty and requires constant cleaning. The mouse has no moving parts and is highly accurate.
Pros: Could be designed to fit hand better; side buttons are a little too easy to accidentally activate.
Cons: Could be designed to fit hand better; side buttons are a little too easy to accidentally activate.
