Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 Review

The Gadgeteer
29 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 (hereafter referred to as “Natural Mouse”) would make any elephant nervous!!  Like any good computer professional, over the years I have gone through a boatload of mouse products, from touchpads to trackballs, wireless mice, corded mice, travel mice, Bluetooth mice, laser mice, and even a few pointing sticks.  And I have discovered that all mice are not created equal.
  • Pros: Amazing list of useful features., It's just so darn comfortable., Excellent battery life.
  • Cons: Takes several days to get used to it., Left-handed people will be disappointed., Programmable side buttons usable only by thumb.

  • Conclusion: The main draw to the 6000 is its unconventional yet comfortable shape, as well as a few interesting features. Like many specialized mice these days, the 6000 is pricey; just be sure that you'll appreciate its features to justify the cost.
  • Pros: Shape and hand orientation more ergonomic; many software features; side-to-side scrolling; firm, grippable thumb area.
  • Cons: Pricey; requires AA batteries; side buttons a bit far from thumb; no clicky scroll wheel; slight wrist bend; lefties need not apply.

  • Summary: There is alot to like about the new Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser 6000 Mouse, but there are also some things that aren’t so great. The mouse design has been completely redone with ergonomics in mind, but it’s not something that will feel comfortable to everyone in the long run. It is a complete paradigm shift in how the mouse is controlled: from using your wrist as a pivot point to the side of your hand.

Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 Review

  • Conclusion: You may also grumble that the scroll wheel rotates without ratcheting or clicking, so it can be difficult to move an Excel worksheet or Outlook daily schedule up or down by just a few rows or to select a particular weapon in a game. The 6000's speed and handling, by contrast, should please gamers with its fast response and the software-driver option of boosting precision or slowing the pointer from 90 percent to as little as 10 percent of normal movement.

  • Summary: The Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 is a fancy mouse that will not leave the user's wrist in pain after use. It is quite possibly the most innovative mouse with regards to ergonomics on the market today. Outstanding laser technology gives this mouse an amazing performance quality that places it above the competition. Price is this mouse's only downfall; if a user is willing to pay for the best, then the Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 is the perfect fit!
  • Pros: Simple Install, Amazing comfort, Outstanding resolution, No Cords, User friendly
  • Cons: Somewhat tall (makes it less portable), Pricey

  • Conclusion: The Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 is a good first step for Microsoft in providing a well designed ergonomic mouse to customers. While a bit awkward for myself, I can see how the design of this mouse is geared to reduce the pressure on your hand/wrists and provide for a more healthy use in the long run.
  • Pros: Ergonomic Design, Laser Technology, Battery Indicator
  • Cons: Not a good design for small hands, Not Bluetooth, Not using Firstconnect Technology, No On/Off Switch, Left Buttons Awkward
