Excerpt: I bought this mouse based on the fit to my hand, the price and its ability to work on any type of surface. I was very surprised when I opened the package and found it does not have an on and off switch. Very annoying as you have to take the battery out to shut it off, otherwise the life of your battery will be very short. I would have thought all would have on and off switches standard.
Excerpt: I thought that this Microsoft mouse would be a good reliable brand. However, it didn't work with my laptop after several attempts to install. I did find that it worked on my wife's HP Computer. So...it may or may not work on yours.
Summary: A very solid mouse, but the surface features are no good. They would have been better off with a solid plastic mouse without the rubber decoration.
Pros: Transceiver is very good, and works at long distances. Structurally durable enough to withstand multiple drops on linoleum floor. Tracking is accurate, and clicks retain a satisfying crispness.
Cons: With my first review, I was raving about the rubber that was used to trim the sides of the mouse and the surface of the scroll wheel. Since October, the rubber has turned to mush in my hand, and the adhesive is not holding it fast anymore. The rubber on the scroll wheel somehow got loose and obstructed the wheel's operation, so I had to tear it off.
Pros: -Battery compartment has a pull tab. Took Microsoft a very long time to add this feature. It makes removing the battery easier -Comfortable. It's large for a mobile mouse, which might be good or bad
Cons: -Jerky and unresponsive. Frequently gets jerky and freezes (old model 2000 wireless is much more responsive and reliable) -absolutely rubbish manual. Documentation is 3 pieces, in multiple languages. Only one page is actually about this mouse.
