Excerpt: Works nice But....Stupid not to have a switch to turn this off and save your battery when not in use. No instructions or software included, have to go download it and Still no instructions of any use....Microsoft cost cutting to the max. Going back to Logitech.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Glides Smoothly, Works On Any Surface
Cons: No instructions, No onoff switch, No Software, Poor Battery Life
Excerpt: I like it. It was settings saving I had problem with scrolling. I had it slow down and sometimes it was unresponsive. At the best it's very good. At times it's frustrating. But the cons are not a problem often and may just be a computer faulthood.
Pros: Comfortable Design, Glides Smoothly, Great Features, Works On Any Surface
Excerpt: This mouse does the job adequately, though it's a bit slow to navigate and also scrolls too slowly. I bought the mouse about 8 months ago and it died recently. So now I've bought a second one. It seems to me an 8 month life span is unreasonably short.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Glides Smoothly
Excerpt: I got my first one with the wireless keyboard 5000 in December 2010, keyboard works fine, the mouse died in Sept. 2011. Now I have to have 2 usb plugged in my computer, one for the old mouse and one for the new one since the keyboard does not work with the new mouse unless I also have the old mouse usb plugged in. Crazy, but at least it works.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Works On Any Surface
