Summary: I travel a lot and pack my laptop case with as many conveniences as I can, since it's always a carry-on bag. I have big hands, so I used to carry a desktop size USB mouse. On a whim, I bought the Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 6000. One of the best purchases I've ever made for laptop accessories. The 6000 series offers a smooth scroll wheel, as opposed to the ratchet feel in some mouses.
A very comfortable mouse to use for people with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Summary: This is the best mouse for me, IMO. I am on my computers a good part of each day when I am not out on a shoot or working on my boat. This mouse doesn't kill my wrist like the painful, small, low and flat models. I spend hours at work and hours processing photographs yet I don't feel any soreness or fatique in my wrist. I have a chronic facture of the R. wrist, coupled with CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) and this is the most comfartable mouse I have found so far.
Summary: Hi resolution, good tracking, perfect wheel, durable for years, light weight, thin cord, 5 button, ideal mouse. Comfortable fit for left or right hand. Low profile, less wrist stress than most mice. I have found several fabrics where it could not track, but is is fast and accurate on normal mouse pads and even some odd surfaces. Avoid shiny slick mouse pads and you should do fine. If you press anywhere on the front half of the mouse you get a click.
Summary: I used this mouse for about a year on my work PC, and after that time it stopped working (the laser went out). So, I called Microsoft support and with just a few questions answered they shipped me out the latest and greatest version of the mouse absolutely free, without the hassle of returning the broken device. Microsoft has done this for me with their hardware time and time again and that's why I keep buying it...
Summary: We bought the 3-pack and replaced all the mice on our home network, which get alot of use between the five of us. Hubby is 6'4" and has the hands to go with it and has always wanted a larger, "taller", mouse and this one has fit the bill. They work great for the rest of us as well and seem to reduce the discomfort that hours of work (or more often play)can cause. Frankly, it's about time someone came up with these!
Summary: I already have a serial port, Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000 version for my desktop. Its very good for my 1st person, shooter gaming. When I got my Alienware laptop, it was only logical to keep my game play at the same level, as my desktop. This Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000 is a USB and perfect for my needs. So far, zero problems and it works as expected. I'm still owning noobs, on the road!!!
Summary: This mouse has everything you need in one place. I have small hands but it still works well for me and feels good on the wrist because you aren't putting the wrist in awkward positions. It is easy to set up and personalize. I have used several different mice and this one is one of my favorites.
Summary: When my old mouse went out on me earlier this week I found myself quickly having to scan online reviews and find a replacement. My first try was the Logitech G5 due to its great reviews online, and visualy appealing design. When I got it home and hooked it in, it did look nice and I loved the textured feel to it. However, after 2 days of using it, with much of that time spent gaming, I found that the steep arch of the mouse, and the weight to it wasnt comfortable at all.
Summary: I was just looking for a black, wired, simple mouse; but I was pleasantly surprised by this device's performance. While it is my first high-definition/laser mouse, and I have nothing to compare it to, it does perform well for a long over due technology. I recall years ago; drawing a free-hand diagonal line in a graphics program (think msPaint with the pencil tool) and the line coming out like stair steps. No matter how slow you draw, it comes out poor.
Summary: Yea...I know, Microsoft calls it a "Gaming Mouse", well, it's really not. As others have said, the side buttons are not convenient for that. But...for its intended purpose...a mouse, it is superb. I'm not sure about the person who had troubles with the magnifier button, mine works perfectly and there is no jerking of the "window" as it moves across the screen. Perhaps they had a slower machine? Microsoft recommends a 233MHz minimum and Windows 2000 or XP.
