  • Summary: Never have I been so disappointed in a product than I have been with this wireless optical mouse. The product page fails to explicitly mention that the transmitter for the wireless mouse is wired and bulky, about the size of the mouse itself(already very large) and yet, it has an extremely poor transmitter range of two to three feet (at most). Worse yet, the frequency is hampered by ANY electronic device near the transmitter.

A bit better if it worked.

  • Summary: I tried batteries all ways round, and also tried new batteries all ways round. The software would not install as my PC said it was out of date. There was absolutely no sign of life, no lights or anything. I bought a MS mouse because it has a lens magnifier which is unique to MS mouse. A complete lump of junk plastic, for ninety flippin quid. Looks to me as though they found it at the back of a store room and reckoned to sell it on Amazon as some idiot would buy it.

VERY SHORT PRODUCT LIFE FOR THE MONEY!!!

  • Summary: I bought a Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 on 3 March 2010. The right hand button ceased to function on 31 July 2012. For £64.58 I would expect a product to last a bit longer than 2 years and 5 months. I have just bought a Logitech M510 Wireless laser Mouse from Amazon for £23.46, which is 36% of the cost of the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000. If the Logitech mouse lasts as long as the Microsoft mouse, I will be well ahead of the game.

Rubbish mouse!

  • Summary: I bought this mouse about a month ago and have had nothing but trouble with it. I could never get a decent signal and the pointer keeps drifting all over the screen. I've changed the batteries 3 times and tried everything to get it to behave. In a bout of anger this morning I took it into the back yard and smashed it to pieces with a hammer! I've just ordered a Logitech MX400 wired mouse. I'll stick to the wired versions for now.

Mouse Microsoft Bluetooth Laser 5000: Infelizmente não gostei

ALESSANDRO_UFMS, MercadoLibre

  • Summary: Comprei dois desses mouses de dois vendedores diferentes, e o scroll dos dois não funciona direito. O que posso concluir disso é que esse problema é intrínseco do mouse. Muitas vezes ao utilizar o scroll ele falha e isso é muito irritante. Também muitas vezes aperto sem querer o scroll quando está rolando, pois é muito mole. Outra coisa ruim é a precisão do mouse. O meu mouse optico antigo (Logitech mx518) de 800dpi é muito mais preciso que esse laser de 1000dpi.
  • Pros: Tamanho e peso ideais, Bom acabamento, Boa compatibilidade bluetooth com Windows, Linux e Mac
  • Cons: Leitura muito imprecisa, Pior scroll que já vi na minha vida
