Summary: Bluetooth range is not good. If there is ANYTHING in the way, you will lose signal, and sometime it won't come back on it's own and you have to reset the mouse to use it again. When the computer comes back from sleeping it also takes forever to get Bluetooth signal again. Batter life is also not good. The only redeeming factor is the multifunction buttons, which are very useful. Recently got the HP H3T51AA which is infinitely better.
Summary: For general use, generously a three-star mouse; for presentations, a one-star mouse. Presenter/Media Mode buttons are a great advent, and the laser pointer is great for your presentations or pets. However, this is a Bluetooth mouse and suffers from the lag issues associated with all Bluetooth mice.
Summary: Pros: * Bluetooth compatibility (see cons) * Built-in laser pointer * Quality carrying case for both mouse and bluetooth adapter --- the carrying case is extremely well designed * 5-button bluetooth mouse --- very few 5-button bluetooth mice are available; this was a significant purchasing point for me Cons: * Unreliable --- it will often simply stop working in the middle of a session of use, after which it must be turned off (using switch on bottom) and turned back on *...
Summary: Microsoft Wireless Notebook Presenter Mouse 8000. I hate it. My major application software are ProEngineer & SolidWorks, which use Middle Button a lot and require smooth / precision cursor. 1. The middle button of this mouse is hard, require FORCE, require control so it can be pressed down vertically or it will tilt sideway due to excessive force apply. 2. The cursor is JUMPING. It jumps too often, seem like sleep and wake up every second.
Summary: First off, I purchased this mouse to replace an older logitech one. I decided to try out a bluetooth mouse because of all the hype about the range it has over regular wireless products. My old Premium Logitech mouse used regular wireless and I could not get more than 2 feet away from my 42 inch plasma screen that I am currently using.
Summary: Technically correct but completely useless. I got this mouse to use with the internal bluetooth adapter in my notebook computer. The software and documentation are absolutely pathetic. They assume you are going to use the included adapter and offer no help if you choose to deviate at all.
buy at your own risk! nice idea but faulty ergonomics

Summary: I see now that the price of this thing has gone down dramatically. There are certainly good reasons for that! Let me tell you what i've learn from three month of trying to use this presenter/mouse. I do a lot of presentations all over the world. I keep trying presenters or "clickers" because they make a big difference to my ability to exercise more control on the presenation.
Good when it works, but it stops working frequently

Summary: I'm using this mouse with my MacBook's built-in bluetooth. The buttons and feel are great, and although the size is a little small in my hand I find the mouse to be very usable. The "forward" button is in a really awkward place -- nowhere near any of my fingers -- so it took considerable practice to learn how to reach it.
Only works with Powerpoint - Avoid this if you're using Acrobat

Summary: This product seems nice, but funny that they NEVER mention that this product ONLY works with the POWERPOINT for the presentation control buttons on the bottom. I use LaTeX and Beamer to create my presentation, and I use Acrobat for the presentation. Other presenters, like Logitech one, works fine with the Acrobat. But not this one. I figured out that general presenters like Logitech's send out "PAGEDOWN" or "PAGEUP" when the button on the presenter is pressed.

Excerpt: laser pointer works effectively as a cat toy.works with my mac book also.presenter button works too. bluetooth dongle won't set up devoid of admin privileges.incorporated bluetooth dongle has a restricted computer software stack/profiles.egg-like and awkward to hold when presenting.When just working with as a mouse, occasionally battery door will shift, causing a lost connection and forcing the user to re-setup the bluetooth connection.
