Reviews and Problems with Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000

Too much of ergonomy
6 February 2011
Summary: The main problem with this mouse is that the designers wanted to decide how you should hold it. It's very difficult to pick up the mouse with your thumb and small finger, and this is something you often do even you don't realize it. Also, it does not work well on surfaces which are not completely matte.
Summary: I bought this mouse on the cheap as I suddenly found myself realising the root of all my desktop-bourne frustration - WIRES!! It arrived in good order, but was bugged by the charging problem from the word go. I managed to sort that eventually by replacing the rechargeable battery with a 1000mAh NiMH Energiser AAA battery I had lying around. None of the fixes as found through searching google did the trick, so luckily the battery swap seems to have done the trick.
Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 vs Logitech MX 1100 Cordless Laser Mouse
10 May 2009
Summary: I have both these mice and am in a position to compare them. The Logitech one is superior. They are a similar price, shape, size and weight - ideal for most hands, a bit too big for tiny hands. The Logitech has extra buttons to adjust the scroll wheel, adjust the cursor speed and an extra thumb button which can be used to change between running applications. They all work well. The Microsoft is rechargeable but it doesn't work very well.
Summary: I had to have this replaced once as the first one I received would not charge. I now appear to be having the same problem with a replacement whereby the connection between the mouse and it's charging cradle is very sensitive. I have to place a piece of paper half-between the mouse and the cradle for the connection to remain in place. Luckily, the battery is pretty good so I only have to do this once every three weeks or so with fairly heavy use.
