Excerpt: I bought this for me to use at work, my desk set up is crazy & i needed a cordless mouse- this works great for me as the UBS plug works well when my mouse is more than a foot away from the tower where my usb is at. I bought another one for at home to use with my laptop & my other desktop.
Excerpt: This was my second new mouse in two weeks. I was very frustrated trying to find one to work well with my new computer. The first one was jumpy and non-responsive. This one did not disappoint in reliability and ease of use. Very smooth in operation, and very responsive. The fit to my hand is comfortable, I don't use a mouse pad now and that seems to help a lot. The mouse was easy to set up and the setting made it compatible with my useage.
Excerpt: The Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 is an attractive, contoured mouse that combines the precision of laser optics with a shape that fits both right- and left-hands. However, the ambidextrous design is a mixed blessing. It's not overly comfortable for either hand, and button placement is awkward. I find myself looking for the buttons to back or forward a webpage. However, for the $30 I paid its a high quality mouse and good for tasks on my desktop.
Excerpt: Over the past several years I have purchased several of these mice and even with large hands I find them very easy to use. I have two computers on my desk and almost have both computers on while working. This mouse always goes only left as this is an ambidextrous mouse (lets you use either hand). I will replace my larger Wireless IntelliMouse when it stops working with this same Laser Mouse 5000.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Great Features, Works On Any Surface
