A good mouse with durability issues

Summary: I bought my Wireless Laser Mouse in late 2006/early 2007, and I still use it to this day. It is a comfortable mouse if you have large hands like I do; others may find it too big. I know it took me a little time to get used to this mouse's size. The button layout is good; the side buttons can't be easily pressed accidentally (unlike the Intellimouse Optical), yet are still accessible when you need them.
Summary: Purchased MS wireless Lase Mouse 8000 through DealBarn. The product was used one (I don't remember it was marked as Used on Amazon. I thought I would receive a new one some reason) and was dirty. They could easily be removed by wiping with alcohol. Bit disgusting.
Summary: The Good. Excellent feel. That is, it fits my large hand perfectly. As well as any LogiTech mouse. The charger stand is much easier to use than my previous LogiTech as you just lay the mouse on top of the pad. The bad. I keep losing the Bluetooth connection whenever I wake up my Mac. I think Microsoft really designed this mouse to work with their silly USB-Bluetooth adapter. But, what is the point of using Bluetooth via a USB port?
Summary: The software on a Mac cannot program the two small buttons on the side. [And it is not sold for a Mac, but neither are a lot of other products that work quite well on a Mac.] Unlike a LogiTech mouse, this one cannot hide a program with a one button click. Otherwise a very well designed product, especially the charger. Neat.
Summary: Another reviewer noted that after a few months of use, the mouse will not recharge anymore. The same thing happened to me and replacing the battery with a new rechargeable AA battery fixed the problem.
Summary: I have used this mouse for a couple of months on a Dell laptop. The mouse is attractive and comfortable. The recharging station is unobtrusive on the desk and a very convenient place to park the mouse. I recharge it every few days and I've never run it down. The wheel is especially nice for scrolling because it doesn't have detents like some mice. I have two relatively minor complaints: 1.
Summary: The Microsoft Wireless Laser mouse 8000 has a sleek black and grey design. The mouse itself is comfortable to use with indented sides to easily rest your thumb and finger on.There is a scroll wheel near the top which also can move from side to side to allow for sideways scrolling which can be done directly from the mouse itself if so desired, without using the cursor to move it.
Summary: This mouse has a good feel, useful features like extra buttons, is easy to use with my laptop thanks to it's bluetooth connectivity, but it's let down by it's pointer control. Moving over small distances the pointer jumps around erratically. I've also got a Wireless Notebook Presenter Mouse 8000 which I keep in my laptop bag, and this doesn't suffer the same problem.
Summary: Hallo. Eigentlich könnte ich mit der Maus zufrieden sein, wenn da nicht das Ladeprobelm wäre. Ich hab sie zusammen mit der 7000er Tastatur gekauft, die läuft auch einwandfrei mit der ersten Batterie. Aber die Maus ... Alle Nase lang blinkt das Dingen rot, also will der Akku geladen werden. Also Sation ausgepackt und angeschlossen - da der Akku ja laut Beschreibung ein halbes Jahr halten soll, sah ich keinen Grund, mit der Ladestation meinen Schreibtisch vollzustellen.
Gute Maus aber nur beding für den Mac zu gebrauchen

Summary: Die Maus an sich ist ein tolles Teil. Liegt super in der Hand, der Akku hält sehr lange die Ladung und auch optisch ist das Ding sehr elegant. Mit dem beigelegtem Bluetooth Dongel geht die Maus problemlos an PC & Mac! Da viele Mac's aber BT build in haben will man diese Maus gerne ohne den Dongel verwenden - was leider nicht direkt geht. Mit einem Trick beim Verbinden kann dennoch einen Verbindung aufgebaut werden.
