No more wires!

Excerpt: This wireless mouse has been working exceptionally well along with the wireless keyboard. My only serious complaint is that you need very good line-of-sight with the receiver in order for it to work smoothly.
Excerpt: This wireless mouse is small and fits nicely in hand (if you are right handed). I love the magnifier feature. The wireless mouse is like a magnifying glass that is held up to your computer screen. Press and hold motion enlarges the selected area of your screen. Receiver plugs into USB. It works best when the distance between the receiver and the mouse is 6 feet or less. Batteries last about 6 months.
Excerpt: I got this mouse at a garage sale and I was very happy with my 3 dollar purchase! It has a long cord that can reach anywhere! Great if you are left handed and need the cord to reach all the way around the computer, or have a desktop and have to pug it into the tower. The way I have the buttons set up is such: The right and left top button are normal, for right and left clicking, the top scroll button is for scrolling, which is a must on any mouse!
Pretty good wireless mouse but it does have one quirk

Excerpt: I'm often teased that I'm "old school" because my family isn't the first to upgrade to all of the latest and greatest technological products. We do not have Caller ID, do not text, and still use VHS tapes to record television shows (gasp!). So when I finally decided to purchase a wireless mouse, my friends congratulated me and welcomed me to the nineties. Okay, I don't think that wireless mice were available then but I still laughed at the joke.
Excerpt: Seems to work pretty well. Sometimes I have trouble with the wireless connection, but that could my own computer acting up. Considering I've dropped it many times and it's still working great, I'd have to say it's very durable. The side buttons for navigating back are pourly placed and not easily felt without having to look at the mouse.
A great mouse for any computer, just a little small.

Excerpt: After getting fed up of a wired mouse and an unresponsive touch pad on her laptop, my girlfriend bought this mouse for a cheap but hopefully good alternative. Many reviews online seemed to show the mouse as a worthwhile investment so a few months ago we ordered one offline. ---Aesthetics--- First of all I would like to mention that the mouse she bought was red and actually because the red version was around £3 cheaper than the black or white versions.
Excerpt: "...'Wireless Mobile Mouse 6000' from Microsoft was a product which didn't jump out at me in the beginnings of my search. Instead, whilst researching different lasers and their capabilities, the 6000 came up as an innovative 'new' alternative idea to the computer mouse. 'Blue laser' technology was something I hadn't heard of, and it is apparently a system which certain products employ which makes for a more accurate, less jumpy maneuvre of the curser ...
Pros: Durable, accurate, ergonomical, funky .
Cons: Blue doesn't beat red, the price ain't competitive .
If you want absolute quality, I'm afraid sometimes you have to pay the price!

Excerpt: I've personally never been a huge fan of the touch pads found on all but a few modern day laptops. I can't seem to get to grips with the sensitivity, and find it irritating that you have to lift and drag several times to reach from one side of the screen to the other. So when I purchased my Toshiba Satellite notebook laptop (reviewed earlier) not long ago, it seemed highly feasible to go out and find a suitable wirelessly capable 'mobile' mouse.
Summary: The mouse is small, easy to handle, and smooth, a lovely eleglant blue light beams out of the mouse laser, it had a very comfortable swervy feeling while moving the mouse around the mat, fit perfectly for my hand size, I did have troubles setting it up due to the mouse not having instructions in the box, but that had no problem due to it all being online on the microsoft website, the mouse does not have a blue light around it as displayed in the picture which was abit...
