  • Pros: Works great as a mouse for my laptop!
  • Cons: The cable is a little short....It's hard to reach all the way around to my usb ports, if your laptop is bigger than 15" you might want to go with something else.

Still the best

David J., Newegg

  • Summary: It says it's 800 dpi. It's called the Microsoft optical mouse 500. The newegg item description doesn't call it that though, but that's what it is.
  • Pros: I prefer small mice. They're more maneuverable. This is just the right size, and very lightweight. I combine this mouse with 3M MW310LE Gel Mousepad It's like the mouse is gliding on air.
  • Cons: Cheap construction. After about a year, the buttons have that cheap squeaky plastic feel. So I replace the mouse about every 8 months with the same one. I keep several on hand, in the package. I go through them regularly, but keep buying the same exact one.

  • Summary: Don't use it as a mouse for a laptop, unless you want to attach it to a docking station.
  • Pros: Its a good size desktop mouse. Works fine with VISTA and Windows 7 beta. no special drivers needed.
  • Cons: Roller could work like the roller on some of its counter parts from Logitech or Microsoft wired OEM units.

Wireless mouse

Eugene M., Newegg
21 June 2008
  • Summary: Fast delivery and great prices!
  • Pros: Easy to use on a Windows-based machine, just plug in the receiver and use it. Although I haven't measured it exactly the range is really good. Running two of these in the same room and they don't interfere with each other.
  • Cons: For some reason, when I plug the receiver in to the mouse port with the included adapter piece, it doesn't work. Needs a special driver perhaps?

Great price!

  • Summary: I prefer the larger size of this mouse to my old smaller logitech mouse. It was uncomfortable and stopped working after it was a foot away from the reciever. In general I have been more satisfied with Microsoft mouses than with logitech.
  • Pros: I love this mouse! It is extremely comfortable and you can use it right-handed or left-handed (which can come in handy when doing two things at once) and it has an excellent price. It also has a very good range.
  • Cons: The one thing that aggravates me is my problem with the mouse wheel. When rolling it back it seems to stick a little and you have to hit it just right for the middle click. Other people I have talked to however said this didnt happen to them.

Jury still out

Daniel E., Newegg
7 December 2007
  • Summary: After going through 3 of the other MS wireless Intellimouse design mice in 3 years I thought I'd give this style a go. The other MS mouse design is one I love, but with 3 mice in a row I found the scroll wheel would get gummed up and become impossible to use after about 14 months.
  • Pros: Good size and weight, comfortable, long battery life
  • Cons: Don't know yet

  • Summary: If it worked the first time it would be great, but the RMA shipping makes it a lousy buy.
  • Pros: Nice shape and size. Buttons feel no worse than more expensive MS mice. Decent range, up to 6 feet unobstructed.
  • Cons: The scroll wheel function was DOA, and has to be RMA'd
