Lovely mouse

Snowflakegirl, Amazon
8 January 2014
  • Summary: The perfect size for using with a netbook/small laptop; this is a small mouse but not a tiny one, so it sits in your hand very nicely. The ONLY downside with it, and the reason for 4* instead of 5*, is that the dongle is now a little on the clumsy side. More modern mice now come with a little micro USB dongle, which barely extrudes from the side of your machine.

Great mouse works well.

  • Summary: Great mouse works well and better design than previous has a very small USB connector which doesn't stick out anything like as much. Responsive and always gets a good signal.

Good buy at the price

Derek, Amazon

  • Summary: Does the job. This is the second one of this model that I have purchased over the past four years. The other one had a duff left mouse button and as this had the price reduced considerably since my last purchase I considered it a very good buy for the price and my only hope now is that the buttons hold out a bit longer on this one..

Mighty mouse

AV maestro, Amazon
19 December 2008
  • Summary: The best thing about this is that it's wireless and the USB stick switches the battery off when it's docked, making the battery last much longer than alternatives. I have found that when the USB stick is removed the light doesn't always come on, and you have to replace it, maybe several times until you get a signal.

A nice compact mouse.

  • Excerpt: The Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 (bit of a mouthful) is a nice piece of kit to go with your computer (particularly a laptop, but it would also be fine for a desktop PC). As mentioned in the title it has no wires, and no ball inside, using instead what Microsoft calls "High Definition Technology" - or a little red laser thingy to the rest of us. Apparently it is clearer than other optical mice, but they would say that.
  • Pros: Reliability

Mighty Mouse

flet1, Ciao
9 May 2007
  • Excerpt: I've had my wireless mouse for 12 months now, and I'm firmly in the "don't know how I lived without it" category. I don't normally buy gadgets - not a technical type, and get confused by all the options - but the fiddly and over-sensitive touchpad on my laptop was driving me to distraction. I bought the Microsoft WNO Mouse pretty much at random (ok - I confess - I liked the colour) but it's been excellent value for money.
  • Pros: any surface, distance, battery life
  • Cons: none

Good mouse but materials need improvement.

JH, Amazon
24 February 2007
  • Summary: I have had this mouse for a year or so now and find it very acceptable ergonomically, though it seemed small when I bought it I have found it to be surprisingly comfortable to hold, the buttons and roller are comfortably positioned and work perfectly, it is solidly built and so far it has been 100% reliable. Perhaps the USB stick could have been smaller but all USB sticks appear to protrude awkwardly and are likely to be knocked at times no matter how small.

Another Great Microsoft Mouse

Chris J. Wood "CW Multimedia", Amazon
18 February 2007
  • Summary: I've bought a mouse before for friends from Microsoft and was impressed with its features compared to my 4 years old but still well featured logitech mouse and keyboard pack. So, when I finally decided to buy a Microsoft product for myself, this Wireless Notebook Mouse, I was keen to see how it turned out, and as most people have decribed in these reviews, I wasn't dissappointed.

~~Playing effortlessly with my unballed mouse~~

11 February 2007
  • Excerpt: HAVING GOOD ACCESS TO a range of personal computer (PC) and /notebook/laptop gadgets provides us the ability to choose what devices and accessories that match with our computing requirements or personal preferences (style, model or brand). In particular, 'input devices' or 'pointing devices' (such as mouse) play an important role to enable us communicate/interact with the computer.
  • Pros: Effortless movement of the cursor on the screen with excellent shape for hands
  • Cons: Nothing except that you have extra AA battery after 5 - 6 months of using it

Tireless wireless

baublebag, Ciao
22 January 2007
  • Excerpt: What do you call a couple when one partner is right- and the other left-handed? Bidextrous? Whatever, it's jolly annoying having to untangle the mouse cable and wrangle it back over the other side of the desk each time you come to the shared PC. Answer: a symmetrical, wireless mouse, like this neat little one.
  • Pros: good for lefthanders and battery misers
  • Cons: fragile antenna and still easy to forget to unplug
