Summary: A minus for this mouse: its wheel. When clicking the wheel (e.g.: over a link for opening it in a new tab), the mouse registers also a scrolling action, so you miss the link. This is because the wheel has no resistance. I wouldn't buy this mouse again.
Summary: I previously had a different Microsoft mouse and it worked perfectly. This one once I get the cursor to where I want it starts to wander. Also the magnifying function comes on unexpectedly and then is hard to turn off. Tried all the adjustments and nothing works. .
Summary: Having used the mouse for about a month by now, I am entirely satisfies with its performance. However, it took me some time to get the hang of it. There are so many bells and whistles included in it. For instance, it took me some time to realize that it has side buttons on both left and right side. Until I found out about the right side buttons, it behaved strangely for a while until I was able to program that side to ignore any settings.
Summary: Could not install software from the disk included with the mouse due to incompatible OS. Running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. Downloaded proper software online but mouse still would not work. Returned it for refund and installed a Logitech mouse with no problem.
Great Mouse for a Good Price If You Can Make It Work!

Summary: I gave this 4 stars because it was affordable and I finally got the magnifier to work on my new Windows 8 laptop after hours of persevering. I would recommend it if you have an older OS, or know how to follow these instructions...... I purchased the MS Laser Notebook Mouse 7000 because it had a magnifier. When I tried to set it up on my new Windows 8 computer, the magnifier did not work.
Summary: Before buying anything, and especially something like a mouse, I always read the system requirements and what other reviewers have to say. Normally I would not have bought this mouse because it did not list Windows 7 as being compatible with this mouse but what made me buy this mouse anyway, was because another reviewer said that she had WDs 7 and supplied the link to Microsoft where you could update the mouse to use with WDs 7.
