A great mouse with no wires attached.

  • Excerpt: Loved using this product as it is cordless and so have no wires to worry about. You are able to use the button instead of the keyboard to make changes, switch to different lines and not need to worry about things moving around. I love the fact that I can move the wireless mouse anywhere I want it is light and easy to use and affordable. Plus it is made by Microsoft so I feel it is made to last.

Logitech Optical Mouse

Consumer Democracy
26 February 2007
  • Summary: Basic optical mouse. I chose to get a new mouse because my previous one kept getting stuck. It was very annoying. Optical mice don't have this problem, with the caveat that they can't be used on reflective surfaces (but I've never heard of a reflective mousepad!). I chose this model because it was reasonably priced and neutral in color. The latest by Microsoft were a very ugly blue and grey combo.
  • Pros: Nothing. It's a good (but basic!) product
  • Cons: Nothing. It''s a good (but basic!) product

The most basic acceptable mouse today

NotMyToot..., Ciao
20 February 2013
  • Excerpt: "...amongst the cheapest of all Microsoft mice available today. Secondly, it is incredibly easy to use - simply plug it in and even the most novice computer users can use it without hassle. I have gone through many mice of all price ranges and strangely, despite even buying specialist ergonomic mice (Including the dreadful Microsoft Comfort Mouse 5000 - my review on this available in my reviews list), I have found this to be the most comfortable. Even ...
  • Pros: Cheap, very comfortable, easy to use, basic
  • Cons: No extra features (Just the most basic design possible), cuts out fro no reason

  • Summary: When programmed for left hand clicking, this feature does not work, until after logged into account. This means that I must do the start-up as with a right hand mouse.
  • Pros: Simple, efficient and easily switchable between left and right hand
  • Cons: Laser mice are more precise. A few extra buttons would not harm. Acceptable price.

  • Summary: Overall, a great mouse. For it to be wireless, and several years old in design, its response time is lightning fast. Didn't notice any slower response than a wired one. Wears out after about a year, though. Buttons start sticking; not responding.
  • Pros: Batter life is loooooong. Don't have to change it very often at all. Comfortable design, great price.
  • Cons: Needs more buttons. My Intellimouse Explorer had several more. Spotty response, some clicks are ignored.

  • Summary: This is the second mouse of this model that I have had and in general I like it...it fits the hand well.
  • Pros: fits the hand well, long life on the batteries, after 2 of them I have gotten used to them.
  • Cons: The first model I had froze up. I had to put a painful amount of pressue to get it to click and this wore out my hand. The second one is too quick on the trigger and one click will often open up multiples of the one thing I clicked on....example in Solitaire it speeds right through the cards without stopping and in Boggle an "a" may turn out to be aaa or an l will be lll. Very Annoying and hard to get precision in games like The Sims 2 and Civilization IV.

  • Summary: I have had problems with the hardware not working right. Even with fresh batteries, when I click something I don't always get a response. Also the middle-click button hardly works at all.
