Best piece of garbage you can buy
8 September 2012
Summary: I was very excited to see this mouse at a discounted price. I bought it and followed the instructions. 6 hours after charging it I was ready to use it. The mouse fits wonderfully in my hand. The texture of it was that soft plastic that is on the back of the Kindle Fire and some phones. It felt great! However, after using it for more than 20 seconds, the pointer stopped moving. I kept moving the mouse and eventually it responded.
incredibly long remote and drastically sensitive wheel

Summary: except the title, all it left are ok. leave along the long use connector which I hit a lot while using, over sensitive wheel is a pain in the ass, it gives you a unstable feel and make you wanna take it out.
Summary: When I received the mouse the rechargeable AAA battery would not work, no amount of charging would get it to work. I replaced the battery with a standard AAA and it worked great. I just wished that it had work out of the box. Other than the it had antiquate feel and response. Nothing amazing just an ordinary wireless mouse. Next time I will go back to Logitech.
not ergonomic, problem with charger, but inexpensive
Joplin "rocks", Amazon

Summary: I had to call Microsoft because this came with a bad charger. The mouse simply refused to be charged. Not sure if it is the battery or the connection in the charger. I called Microsoft to complaint and they send me a newer model which is much better than this one. I also don't like the way the mouse handles. It is not very ergonomic and requires one to lift the thumb to hit the backup and magnification buttons.
Summary: This mouse is great except the battery that comes with the mouse does not work. Numerous other people online have had the same problem--plan on buying yourself some rechargeable batteries if you want your new mouse to work.
Summary: I have been using the mouse for a couple of years. In that time I have found that it does not charge reliably, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. The precision is not as good as I would expect from a "laser" mouse. I find that if I am doing fine graphics work, the mouse jumps multiple pixels at a time. Lately the scroll wheel has become unreliable. Sometimes it scrolls properly, sometimes it doesn't.
Summary: I loved this mouse at first... Then the charger started giving me fits, like it does a lot of other people. Since then, it has been a paperweight. Spend the extra $5 or $10 and get something with a better review/charger.
Summary: Pros: nice contours/feels comfortable in hand. Visually pleasing. Easily installs with Win 7(x64); Included software not needed. Cons: Packaged battery does not work. Had to buy a battery to use it. Bottom line: Mouse wheel is ultra smooth and it has taken a while to get used to it. Different from the tiny Logitech M305 I was using. The fact that the included battery did not work with the hardware was very disappointing.
