So So

M. Sheridan, Amazon

  • Summary: Seemed very good, but after a few weeks we started having problems with the cursor twitching and jumping around at times. In the past with other mice I've usually found this to be caused by fluff or a tiny thread in the optical path, but this didn't seem to be the case here. Eventually we have taken it out of service and gone back to an older mouse.

Not all that.

  • Summary: I can't believe Microsoft has produced such a bad product, I found the mouse to large and heavy, "and I have large hands" it didn't glide very well on my mouse mat, also to turn the mouse off, you have to disconnect the large usb receiver from your pc, and place it in the base of the mouse, bad design, the best mouse I have bought to date "and I have had many" is the Microsoft 4000, all in all, get the Microsoft 4000 instead.

Nice fit, but middle click doesnt work on MAC

Guy Harwood, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: The mouse is a good shape and fits nicely in the hand. A real shame that the wheel click / middle click does not work on the mac. Also, when slowing down to click on things the pointer would jump around. I think this is because it has its own receiver rather than using standard bluetooth, because most mice that use standard mac bluetooth work really well.

Very poor for CAD user

  • Summary: I bought this mouse as I have been struggling to find one that was big enough for my hand, I was initially impressed by the size and the shape which was just what I was looking for. My initial happiness was very quickly replaced by sadness when I realised the mouse performed horribly. My first complaint was the movement, no matter how I tried to tweak the acceleration and the sensitivity it always felt wrong.

Part of the Comfort Range?

  • Excerpt: I got this mouse as part of a keyboard and mouse set. This set was specifically design to be an ergonomic set which would make the devices more comfortable. I have already written a review for the accompanying keyboard but the mouse has similar issues too. It is just not comfortable! Microsoft, unlike many other manufacturers, designed the mouse to be used by both left-handed and right-handed people alike.
  • Pros: BlueTrack Technology makes it possible to use the mouse on more surfaces
  • Cons: NOT ergonomic  -  despite what they say, awful scrollwheel

  • Excerpt: Worked fantastic out of box, smooth fast scrolling and side buttons are excellent for added adds for knives etc on games. says it has a what, eight month battery span? what if the actual mouse only operates for much less then a month then what?It had randomly stopped working on me for no purpose, attempted updating, putting in, reinstalling all drivers and so forth. and nevertheless nothing seems to perform.

Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000

  • Excerpt: Looks good. Have been utilizing it for a couple of hours a night for 2+ months and battery indicator still reads green. Comfortable, superior Lefty/Righty layout. Middle click and side buttons are a bit inconsistent. Frustrating for gaming. Scroll wheel utterly useless -- manageable in, say, Web Explorer, but moot elsewhere. I get a lot of wireless lag in games when the adapter is additional than about a foot away from the mouse.
