"BEST MOUSE EVER!!"on by ctheis
Pros Rechargeable with included docking station, Battery Included, Page scroller doesn't have clicking which I like. Mouse has a little weight. Nicely contoured feel. Glides nice on desktop surface
Summary The best mouse that I have ever purchased. I've never really cared about mice, and have always used the default Dell mouse. I bought a wireless for my laptop and got spoiled. Now I upgraded my desktop mouse too. I don't install the extra software, I prefer to keep it basic, but the mouse was easily worth the $60 I (my company) paid for it.
I really like how the contour "cups" my thumb. The size of the mouse is big enough to fit my hand. Some wireless mice are too small. The weight of the mouse is substantial in the rear which makes moving it minute amounts much easier.
The wireless setup was simple. I just plugged it in and everything worked. Like I said I don't use Intellipoint.
It's worth $60.
Pros Light, works straight out of the box on Mac (no software necessary) and it's quite comfortable.
Cons A little louder than what I'm used to (clicking) and not quite as smooth on all surfaces (prefers my desktop to a mouse pad).
Summary I've gone through my fair share of laser mice. One of the things I find most tricky to deal with is the weight of wireless mice due to batteries.
As this mouse only uses one AA battery, and I guess due to the materials used, it is extremely light and easy to maneuver.
I have large hands and I find this mouse quite comfortable during extended use. It's not as arched as the Logitech mice of similar prices, but it is wider which suites me just fine.
I've never used a Microsoft mouse before, and whilst it sounds louder than the Logitechs I've been accustomed to, it nevertheless feels well made and durable. Time will tell I guess.
The blue laser technology is a bit of a gimmick IMO, don't see that there would be that many people looking for a mouse that will work on carpet. But, it's a fine mouse in any case. You just wouldn't necessarily buy it just for that feature.
Haven't tried any accuracy work yet (i.e. Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.) nor have I tried gaming yet. Again, time will tell if I've made the right purchase decision. For now, I'm happy.
Pros I love the two technologies being combined
Cons No bluetooth? Who wants another usb dongle? with laptops getting smaller and the number of connection types growing, there are fewer usb ports on laptops. Nobody wants to carry around a usb hub with power brick; especially the mobile worker.
Summary cool technology but leaves one out - bluetooth. Not an ideal solution for the mobile worker.
Pros The mouse can be used on all types of surfaces!....It is also very comfortable to use for long periods of time. Battery life is good!
Cons I dislike the fact that the USB dongle provided is huge in comparison to other offerings from Logitech. Besides that no other complaints
Summary Microsoft invented the optical mouse in 1999 and then in 2003 they invented the laser mouse. This mouse is the next generation tracking technology from Microsoft....I have used it on the carpet at my office while having group brainstorm sessions and it has worked a lot better than any other mouse that i have used. I have also had time to try it on my granite counter tops where it also performs well. The one thing so far that i do not like about the product is the fact the USB dongle that comes with the mouse is huge for today's standards. Overall i would definitely recommend this product to people who do a lot of mobile computing or like a nice solid comfortable mouse.
"Wrong word"on by olsonan
Pros Good review
Cons Wrong word used
Summary In the sentence ending, "...a recharging station that's thankfully paired down compared with those of Microsoft's older rechargeable mice," you meant "pared" not "paired".
