Great While it Lasted

Anonymous, Newegg
23 December 2010
  • Summary: Long story short, I emailed tech support (it exists, webkennection) and I was set up with the "MS Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 V2," my TS Agent Mahesh noting that the WLM 5000 is discontinued.
  • Pros: Pretty much everything you could expect from a mouse. It felt good in your hand. The tracking was smooth and precise. It hadeprogrammable buttons, and a good Windows 7 Device Stage page. Overall a good mouse.
  • Cons: Unfortunately it didn't last long. About 6 months in the middle/scroll click stoped working. I was dissapointed at first but being reprogrammable I moved on. Then earlier this week the left click died on me. It lasted a little more than a year.

  • Summary: None
  • Pros: Works great, very smooth operation even while gaming. Nice contour fits like a glove and very comfortable. Very smooth scrolling feature is better than old style clicks. Definately recommend
  • Cons: Range of wireless control could be better. I would not read mouse six feet away, maybe a line-of-site issue?

Get drivers online and works like a charm

Mary S., Newegg
2 March 2010
  • Summary: It's a very good mouse, the best I've bought so far in terms of functionality and customization, it's just that one button I keep accidentally triggering due to the design of the mouse that caused the one egg being taken off.
  • Pros: Works well, lots of customization options for the buttons and styles for mouse pointer.
  • Cons: When I first installed it with the CD Driver, the mouse crashed within minutes of using it and no amount of uninstalling or reinstalling would resolve, then caused my PS2 port mouse that this replaced to stop working as well. Had to put in another USB mouse, found new drivers online, installed th...

  • Cons: Limited range but plenty smooth in the zone of about 8 feet.

  • Summary: Overall great for the price i go it just need more time to get use to it.
  • Pros: Battery life pretty good it also comes with two AA batteries. I got it for 20 bucks. It has five buttons and you can customize them and the software is pretty good easy to install. The mouse feels good and slick when holding it.
  • Cons: The wheel button sometimes gets stuck and you can find yourself getting out of of your mousepad. The left and right side button can be a bit annoying when trying to click them.
