Summary: I like this mouse. It works and it is reasonably sensitive. The blue light isn't annoying in the dark. All the buttons are responsive. The scroll wheel doesn't have the clicking feeling. That is not a deal breaker but I do prefer the ones that have that clicking feeling. Also with the clicking thing, it's easier to push the middle click without rolling the wheel. The two side buttons are good.
Summary: The mouse is good, I've noticed I've had to get used to a few things: One, the scroller seems to scroll a bit fast and sometimes when I'm reading something it moves because it is very senstive. Also, I've found the batteries need to be changed quite often. I change mine about every two months. With my logitech it was every six months.

Summary: There's nothing wrong with the mouse. Works well and feels good in the hand. But I typically don't open Amazon boxes and find a used item in a ZipLock bag, which is what I got this time. I kept it because I needed the mouse, but this was a real head-scratcher for me, given the great service I've had from Amazon for over a decade.
Summary: I purchased this wireless 5000 mouse to replace the 5000 mouse included as part of the Comfort 5000 keyboard/mouse combo. (the mouse has a rubber wheel that tends to deteriorate). The software, however, doesn't accomodate use of a new mouse with an older keyboard...even though they are the same thing. Too bad....the mouse is nice accept for the rubber wheel...
Summary: I've been using my Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000 for about 4 months now. It performs fairly well and is comfortable to use. I'm not one to gush over technology...it's a mouse, it does the pointy-clicky things as one would expect. I don't expect to keep it around for long, so let's not make this relationship too complicated. The good: -- The scroll wheel rolls very smoothly without making any annoying sounds.
Summary: This mouse works well in most cases. It's quite smooth while you are using it. Cons: Seam of rubber is where your right thumb sits-- quite awkward. The forward and back buttons are in impossible to use places without positioning your hand in an uncomfortable position.
Summary: The mouse won't turn off when the computer is turned off. So the light is turned on continuously during all the day even if you don't use it. The batteries must get empty more quickly. There is a button under the mouse that allows to turn off the light, but it must be stayed pressed to be activate. But in fact, this button is made to be pressed by the usb key that comes with the mouse : You can click the usb key under the mouse to store it at this place.
Size is good but don't like the feedback from the device

Summary: I bought this mouse to replace my Logitech MX Laser which was no longer working after about 6 years of heavy use. I have large hands it can be hard to find one that fits my hand, so initially the size of the Microsoft mouse attracted me to it. Responsiveness seemed good and precision was not an issue. It also seemed to work good on differnt types of surfaces as promoted in the product details.
