Summary: i was really looking forward to liking this mouse. i love the ergonomic design and the buttons are nicely placed. Cons: this mouse FAILED after a week. it works but freezes and completely stops functioning for about 5-10 seconds at times. it usually occurs every 20-30 minutes and you may think it is fine and you can deal with it, but it is very annoying to keep unplugging the usb and re-plugging it in multiple times in one sit down.
Summary: The range of the wireless is about 8 inches, any farther and it is very intermittent. The mouse "feet" are to the left of center and cause it to wobble when used!! What the hell microsoft!? Also note that it is impossible to pick up using your mouse hand, if you play FPS games where picking up the mouse and placing it elsewhere in order to rotate your view is necessary, you should really look elsewhere.
Really - think twice, and then get the Logitech. If zero stars were allowed, I'd go with that rating.

Summary: I purchased this POS for $49.00 a couple of years ago, and it was at best mediocre, but mostly lame. Comfort -great. It takes the strain off your mousing hand if you do a lot of work with it during the day. Batteries - Eh. Ease of use - Annoying. Lame. Forget about it. I have this on an aging XP box that I use for photo editing. Fourth Category - Fitness for Intended Purpose.
Summary: Pros: Ergonomic, very natural feeling when using, love how the scroll button can move side to side as well as up and down freely. Buttons on side very nice. Works well with windows 7. Cons: MALFUNCTIONS AFTER HALF A YEAR. I bought this mouse after christmas and its been starting to malfunction. The scroll button malfunctions by scrolling around even when you are not scrolling.
Summary: Windows 7 has an issue with (it appears) almost any wireless mouse/keyboard/desktop combo. ([...]). Mouse pointer stutters, freezes; keyboard repeats. Both 32- and 64-bit versions suffer. Apparently has to do with latency problems. Because the wireless devices performed well under XP, I'd wait to purchase until M'soft has acknowledged and fixed the bug.
Summary: This mouse is very choppy. I never owned a wireless mouse before having this one. When I first used it, I noticed how choppy it was when it worked. If I stopped using it for about a minute, then began to move it again, it took an extra second or two to start communicating with the computer, almost as if it were asleep. With the responsive time of computers improving over the years, this mouse is a massive step backwards.
Summary: Typically I like microsoft mice. Of the things microsoft produces, the hardware is generally good (because they get someone else to make it and smack their name on it). This particular mouse is comfy, gets good battery life, has average-for-a-wireless-mouse tracking (1000dpi). That's the good. The deal-breaker is that it only works reliably from within 3 feet of the USB reciever. That's why it gets one star from me.
I really liked it, but after 3 months it loses signal within 10 minutes

Summary: I was really happy with this mouse when I bought it brand new at a local office supply store. It's comfortable and the batteries lasted forever without charging. However after about 3 months it now loses signal within about 10 minutes. I haven't added any new wireless devices and the sensor is literally 6 inches from the mouse. I'll plug it in and it'll work fine, but after a few minutes it just stops and acts like the batteries are dead.
Summary: I bought one of these a few months ago as a replacement for a Logitech VX Revolution. This mouse is larger and not as comfortable, and the "dock" for the USB dongle is laughable by comparison. All of that is manageable, but I have had nothing but problems with this mouse. Mouse movement freezes up and skips, using both the native USB mouse drivers and the MS Intellimouse software. I experienced these problems under Windows XP and Windows 7.
