Returned it

Eugene W., Newegg
21 June 2011
  • Pros: Good price
  • Cons: I returned it after a few days, it tracked more poorly then my normal optical mouse that I had already. No smooth movement of the mouse across the screen, instead it would pause every once and again (I imagine as it failed to read a difference in the reflection of the laser). Ah well, guess I jus...

Piece of Junk!!

Kenneth R., Newegg
27 September 2010
  • Summary: I have bought many MS wireless mice and they are great. This thing is just completely opposite. Tried to find how to RMA on MS site, but all I could find when I clicked was a word document of the warranty. Actually, I would not want to return it because I would not want another one.
  • Pros: Feels good and looks good. Too bad it does not function.
  • Cons: Everything. Very erratic. Buttons don't work half the time. Works on its own other times. Sometimes it clicks or scrolls without touching it. No support on MS hardware site.

Stopped wortking several times

Brent E., Newegg
22 March 2010
  • Pros: Worked well for a little while. Buttons were well placed.
  • Cons: Just stopped working. At first I was going to RMA it, but then it started working again after doing the Windows 7 troubleshooting scan. Then a month later it stopped again even after installing the latest driver. So, I think there may be more dependable options out there. Running Windows 7.

Overall Very Disappointing

Anonymous, Newegg
20 March 2010
  • Summary: I've had this mouse over a year now. I got it elsewhere in the retail packaging for about $30 and it has proven to be the worst $30 I have spent in a long time. The wheel button does NOT function as it should (nor has it ever functioned properly).
  • Pros: Low Cost
  • Cons: Wheel button does not function well for double-clicking, weird layout, feels "strange" in your hand, loses connectivity frequently.

Do Not Buy This!

Neal A., Newegg
1 March 2010
  • Pros: -
  • Cons: This device will cause your screensaver and powersaver to cease functioning! I bought without doing due dilligence reading reviews - my loss! MS acknowledges that this will break your screensaver and powersaver functions in XP, Vi$ta, & 7. They offer downloads to fix it, but none worked on my Del...

Don't Buy This mouse

Joseph D., Newegg
16 February 2010
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Came in plastic bag & not original box without anything. Did not work at all. So I just tossed it in the trash. This was to replace what looked to be the exact same mouse.
