Cons: While the mouse works as expected it is to large for most hands and slides very roughly. The over sized receiver makes it useless worth a net or notebook and even less so either a desk top as Microsoft recommends you remove when not in use. I guess thi
The Laser Mouse has sufficient accuracy and portability.

Excerpt: The Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 is easy to use and works well. The set-up process might be challenging for some, but if you've used the technology before, it'll be easy enough. The wheel and additional buttons are a bonus, but the mouse does lack some of the added versatility of, say, a mouse that can be switched to presentation mode. If you only need a standard PC mouse to make life easier on your laptop, this is an excellent choice.
Excerpt: Very nice mouse with features aplenty... Wonderfully adorned with both vertical and side scrolling options, as well as, a clickable scroll wheel. In addition it has nice ergonomic shape that fits perfectly in the hand and puts a button at both the user's thumb and ring fingers.
Excerpt: I've used several wireless mice in the past, and this model (Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000) seems to be the best so far. It uses bluetooth technology, so there are no wires to deal with. It is comfortable for use in either hand (I use it with my left hand, and it's still comfortable). It's reliable and always works, except when there is crud blocking the optical sensor.
Excerpt: For months, I have trying to find a good mouse, which by my standards, include: designed for large hands, wireless, smooth scrolling, and customizable buttons. The Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000 offers all that and more for a great price. To begin with, this mouse has really smooth scrolling. I cannot stop using the scroll wheel because I have never been able to scroll this smoothly before.
Excerpt: I was originally worried about the quality of this mouse because I had bought another mouse from Microsoft and it didn't work at all. However, I really like the Bluetrack 5000 because it has a good battery life. Sometimes I would forget to take out the USB, but the batteries would still last me for weeks.
Excerpt: This mouse came in a package deal with my wireless keyboard. I have been using this mouse for over 2 years with no major problems. I use it on a gaming Rat Padz mouse pad and it tracks perfectly. Since this is my first wireless mouse, it's impossible for me to compare it to others, but in my opinion, the battery life is slightly lacking.
Excerpt: I bought this mouse to replace basically a really old microsoft mouse blue. Its really my first wireless mouse and i'm quite satisfied with it. At first I thought i would not like the added heft of a mouse with a battery inside it, but I suppose this one just really isnt too bad at all. especially given it has 2 batteries (some mice have only 1 now). That said i prefer it with 2 batteries as they tend to last longer and give better range.
