Does the job well.

Summary: Found this mouse to be well made, a smaller version of the dependable Microsoft desktop versions. Needs a single 2A battery and your on your way. Nicely hidden battery door comes off easily with a fingernail. For traveling, insert USB counterpart in same area to keep them together. The USB R/T is longish and can get in way when moving or setting down while attached to laptop.
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: While I only scored the product 4 stars, it works extremely well. I marked it down only because there is no tactile feedback on the scroll wheel. After decades of having the ratcheting sound and feel, it is just un-nerving. Others may not have this reaction. All that said, I would buy it again and recommend it.
Summary: This mouse is an old design that still works. I've used it over fifteen feet distance from PC and it works fine. The mouse's battery has been installed in the mouse for 4 months, so installed battery's lifetime is fine with me; I don't remove it from the mouse to to preserve batteries. Good Mouse.
Summary: Was nice when this was opened on Christmas morning to find that the battery it needed was already included in the packaging. The installation CD it came with was completely worthless, it wasn't compatible with Windows 7. However, there was an easy to find patch available on the internet that made the mouse work flawlessly. Mouse is a little bulky, but comfortable in the hand.
Summary: I got the laser 7000 because I hadn't found a mouse that would work directly on my shiny kitchen table. This one DOES. The speed is just fine for me for everyday use. The only thing I will have to work on is getting used to the left and right side buttons . . . it's like I can't click the side button without accidently pressing down on the left click button, ackward, but maybe I just need more practice.
