Summary: this mouse stopped working within the first few weeks i had it. and when it was working, i didn't care for it too much. the control over the mouse was not smooth enough for me. also, the USB plug is huge! since i always had it plugged in, i was scared that i was gonna accidentally hit it and break my USB port. next i bought a logitech mouse that was much cheaper, worked much better, and had a very small USB plug that barely stuck out.
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: 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.
Summary: I'm completely satisfied with the mouse performance (scrolling, tracking, etc.) and design, but a little less than a year after I bought it, the receiver started acting up. Seemed like it was constantly trying to find the mouse, even though my laptop was asleep. That would wake my laptop up and drain the battery from my mouse super fast. A couple months later, the receiver just stopped working completely. Awesome.
