Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer
8 May 2004
Excerpt: That good ol' desktop rodent that you constantly shove around on your desk for some point-and-click action has been around for decades now. Its main function is to translate the movement of the mouse on the desk into cursor movement on your screen and to execute commands and launch programs, making your computing experience a lot easier by letting you point-and-click instead of having to type like a madman.
Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer for Bluetooth
3 July 2003
Summary: While this
mouse eats a lot of batteries and is not rechargeable, however the distance the
mouse can be used from the transceiver is amazing. On the battery side, when the
battery is about 50% or less at its capacity, sometimes the mouse would not
work. While comparing the Logitech MX700 mouse relating to performance, they
almost evenly matched (the scroll scrolled smoothly even at fast speeds just
like the Logitech MX700).
Pros: Mouse can be used through anything and long distances, Bluetooth transceiver can be used with other Bluetooth devices at the same
time, Great design
Conclusion: It’s unfortunate with all the new options available in the mouse line that only metallic grey/silver finish was available, but this color probably appeases a larger crowd then the rest. The IntelliMouse Explorer is good looking; and for those of you who have older versions or who did not want to go wireless, I definitely recommend you try this product.
Conclusion: This mouse marks the first time Microsoft has re-released a past hardware product because of the popularity of the previous model. The already great optical technology has been vastly improved to be more responsive, more precise, and much smoother combined with new IntelliPoint 6.0 features. Those of you who have gotten used to the tilt wheel will be disappointed this mouse does not have it.
