Excellent Wireless Mouse

Maurice P., Newegg
9 December 2011
  • Summary: I have not owned the mouse long enough to speak to its battery usage however it is interesting to note that there is an ON/OFF switch on the bottom of the mouse. When your moving the mouse it switches to its High Power mode (Laser gets brighter) and when your not using it it will switch to low power...
  • Pros: * Blue Laser Technology works on many surfaces as advertised. * Maximum range of aprox 30' Line of sight. * Push + Tilt + Scroll Mouse wheel * Built in Storage location for USB Drive * Single AA battery use (provided) * Comfort Fit. I was a little concerned that the mouse would not fit in my hand...
  • Cons: This may not be a con for everybody however the mouse wheel does not click as you attempt to scroll up or down. It was somewhat annoying at first but i've actually learned that i prefer it over the old scrolling clicks. * The 4th button on the left side makes this a Right hand mouse Only. You wil...

Correction

  • Pros: I was wrong on the two switch pressure levels on the wheel.... If you are not careful where you place your index finger to push the wheel, it will be pushing down on the index finger switch as well.
  • Cons: The plastic around the wheel is easy to push when not paying attention.

Does more than advertised

William L., Newegg
21 October 2011
  • Summary: It feels different, larger width then the previous mouse I was using. The wheel has no click to it, but it's ok.
  • Pros: This mouse has some hidden features not listed in any documentation I have come across. Their are 8 total buttons I have discovered. You have the standard 5: left, right, thumb, index, and wheel buttons. Then the wheel has two pressure point switches; hard push - standard, light push for a new bu...
  • Cons: Their is no CD in the package. When you go to Microsoft's web site to down load the software as instructed in the "Start Here" manual, non is listed for Win 7. HOWEVER, Win 7 will automatically detect the installation of the mouse and automatically install the correct drivers by itself. Thanks fo...

  • Pros: This mouse is the most comfortable mouse ever! great tracking and the buttons aren't that hard to push down. (unlike what other people say) great for a person with big hands.
  • Cons: the receiver isn't a micro one, but oh well its on my main tower anyway.

Excellent

Chris F., Newegg
12 February 2011
  • Summary: The back/forward buttons are unlike others I've used. The hepatic feedback is almost non-existant. So you really don't know if you've pressed the button or not.. But it's starting to grow on me.. I also prefer the back/forward to be on the same side, but that hasn't been an issue either.
  • Pros: Great Mouse. First off. I love the size. I'm tired of trying to find a mouse that fits my hand instead of feeling like I'm pushing around a baby toy.. This one does just that.. The design/look is very unique (IMO). The glossy black and rubberized grip in some areas is very very cool. Overall very...
  • Cons: More of a matter of preference than a con.. but I like the actual receivers with a cord more than the tiny usb plug in receivers.. I find those easy to misplace.. However the mouse accomadates the receiver "on-board" during transport so as to avoid this possibility.. The back/forward buttons are ...

Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000

Lee S., Newegg
26 December 2010
  • Summary: The ability to snap in the receiver to turn the mouse off seems like a good feature, but how often will I actually take that out of my desktop and put it in my mouse? Most likely never. But for a laptop this feature is probably a sweet one indeed.
  • Pros: One of the most comfortable mouses known to man-kind. Its' size if perfect, not to big-not to small. Conforms to your hand perfectly. It looks like and feels like the mouse was engineered with quality put in mind for once. The beautiful look and feel is really stunning. The top is glossy black th...
  • Cons: Middle scroll button is a bit hard to push, but this may soften up after use (most likely), but it is not a big deal. I needed a new keyboard and mouse for school and this will be great, but I also play games like StarCraft 2 which I am not sure if it's the best gaming mouse. I haven't had it lon...

Best mouse I ever bought

John B., Newegg
15 December 2010
  • Summary: I do not understand tw3kr's review.
  • Pros: *Normal size mouse for once. Tired of those small mouses. *Perfect for laptops and computers *Very good for gaming *Comes with two side buttons that can be used as hotkeys *Blue laser makes it seem more sensitive with a higher mouse threshold. I've user a lot of other wireless mouses and it seems...
  • Cons: *The mouse is very glossy, making it very dirty. *The scroll wheel is a bit too easy to move, but it's not a major flaw. *Mouse wheel seems hard to click *I didn't buy it from newegg.
