Excerpt: 7 years ago I aquired my first wireless mouse. I was less than satisfied with the product. Batteries were eaten up within a couple of weeks. Depsite the supposed wireless nature of the mouse the range was abysmal and in order to keep it in line …
Summary: Usual good quality mouse that you would expect from Microsoft. I have bought a few of these for the office. Excellent value for money, not much more than a wired version, and cheaper than buying a mouse extension cable, also staff just love having a cordless mouse. Battery life is good too.
Summary: I use this mouse for my laptop, and I find it far far better than any dedicated laptop mouse I have used. It fits my hand nicely, has a long battery life (3 years of ownership and maybe 6 battery changes isn't too bad!).
Summary: Good product, easy to set up and install. Only thing is that the installation CD is not compatible with Vista but it prompts you to head to Microsoft website and download the patch - a doddle. Well worth £15.
Summary: I will soon be suing the manufacturers for RSI. The buttons are unreliable - single click, double click, click hard, click gently - who knows whether this piece of junk will respond? Jerky tracking and scrolling (though that can to some extent be corrected by adjusting settings).
An innovative product with high precision, quality and performance

Excerpt: Having good access to a range of personal computer (PC) and /notebook/laptop gadgets provides us the ability to choose what devices and accessories that match with our computing requirements or personal preferences (style, model or brand).
Summary: This is a good value mouse, easy to set up and easy to use. All in all a good product from Microsoft. The only thing I didn't like was the scroll wheel... the action is not as smooth as it could be.
Totally cordless mouse, with optical sensors, so able to work on wide variety of surfaces

Excerpt: It’s nice to be writing about a Micro$oft product that’s a) good and b) something you weren’t more or less forced to buy. It also makes a change to be writing about something one year down the line from buying it, rather than having barely unwrapped it and got to grips with it.
