Summary: I ignored the other reviews thinking a Microsoft product can't be bad, but it is. Just Google its product name for a plethora of forums on how to fix its niggles. Thankfully I've not gone that far as it failed to work from the outset. Mine also came with an American plug so i had to buy an adapter as well. Look elsewhere for a wireless mouse.
Summary: I bought the microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse as a single product, whilst the key board has performed very well, I find the mouse pretty hopeless, it just does not repond to your movement correctly. I gave it a good run thinking it may just take some getting used to but you can move the mouse a cm or more before you see any movement and when homing in on a target not only is is hard to position it jumps around. Keyboard 7000 yes, mouse definitely not.
Summary: I really like the look and feel of this mouse however it has major design issues. The mouse wheel does not work very well, even with the sensitivity turned right up it still does not scroll anywhere near as much as it should. The 2nd major issue is the charging dock. I always get a flashing red light which means there is a charging error. I re-dock the mouse then it charges for maybe 30secs and goes back to the flashing red error light.
Summary: The drivers which came with the mouse are causing no end of problems with the current CAD package I am using, rendering my PC unusable. To my dismay I found out that these clashes are well documented all over the internet, the only solution is to buy any other brand of mouse. This has caused me no end of grief, consider yourselves warned!
