Summary: I bought this Presenter Mouse 800 about 6 months ago and it has been driving me nuts with the cursor erratic and sometimes not working without turning it off and on. Finally it just quit even though Windows said it was working fine. I was about to search through hundreds of invoices to find the invoice so I could get it replaced from Microsoft when I remembered I had a Microsoft USB Bluetooth transceiver and followed the Windows help file to connect it to the mouse and...
Summary: After doing lot of research I narrowed down to this mouse with the following criteria I had. 1. It should have more than 3 buttons. The forth button on the mac would be used for expose. 2. It should not be notebook mouse, i.e. small and tiny. 3. It should be wireless and use Bluetooth and not a usb adapter, because there are only 2 usb ports on mac pro. So I can't block one perceptually. Most of the good wireless mice are not Bluetooth or they were small ins size.
Summary: My ONLY complaint about this mouse is that, for some reason, it's awkward to click. It feels good in my hand, it feels substantial and high-quality. The sensitivity is great, and it was a snap to pair the bluetooth with my laptop. I found that I really like the smooth-scrolling wheel - now I wish my other mice were smooth-scrolling. But I REALLY have to concentrate to click either of the main buttons or the wheel button without moving the mouse.
Summary: Me ha gustado bastante el mouse, solo que he tenido problemas para hacerlo funcionar con el bluetooth del notebook. Es cómodo y bastante portátil. El modo presentación funciona bastante bien como así también el control multimedia.
Summary: I was given this mouse (Presenter 8000) as a gift. At first I loved it, but it has a couple of significant flaws. The worst one is that it eats batteries. It takes 2 AAA batteries; I've had the mouse about 2 months and the second set of batteries just failed - a month per set is unacceptable. It has auto-sleep so there's no excuse for this. Further, it doesn't like rechargeables, so that's not an option. The other flaw is that it loses its marbles every so often.
Useful, but doesn't "feel" as comfortable as other MS mice

Summary: Mouse works great, but compared to the other Notebook mice I use (also by Microsoft), the feel of this one could be improved. A couple things I noted: 1) Buttons require a bit of "oomph" to push. I don't even think about pushing the buttons on the other notebook MS mice, it's a subconscious action. For this mouse, I have to push a little harder to get the buttons to work. 2) Mouse is a bit "slippery.
Summary: I purchased this to use with my HP Pavilion dv7 which has the bluetooth capability built in. The setup was a little confusing with windows 7. After several tries, I was able to get it pair with my computer without using the USB adapter. My biggest problem is it disconnects from the laptop for no reason. I thought it was the battries and it was not. I have seen this same complaint with bluetooth headphones but I have not tried them.
Summary: I returned mine since I needed a mouse to use every day. This is a small-sized mouse, not a normal/full sized-one. Also, it doesn't have the quality of materials that you expect from a desktop/normal mouse. It is made of cheaper, soft plastic and doesn't have the feel that it will last as long.
Summary: Mouse 4 stars, presenter 1 star. This is a good, very sensitive mouse, with an outstanding tracking. It is subject to some software hiccups as may be typical for a wireless mouse. The options are to pair it with the provided USB adapter or with the bluetooth radio of a computer. As long as the pairing is not changed for the mouse, it will start right away after the computer or mouse is powered on.
