Top Customer Reviews
-the nano receiver is.. well.. nano. I leave it plugged in to the laptop when I change locations.
-It looks nice and moves really smoothly
-Its small size means easy storage in a bag for portability.
-it has buttons on both sides of the mouse.. main reason for buying it.
-comfortable for short term usage
-rubber on the side has a nice feel.
-It doesn't automatically change channels in heavy interference locations. It means you have to unplug and re-plug in the transceiver if the mouse starts responding intermittently. Not a huge deal, but maybe spread spectrum should be used.
-The mouse wheel (page scroll) doesn't work in ALL programs. I have already found three programs that this Microsoft mouse function will not work in. These are programs that a generic hardwire mouse has no problems with. Strange. So if I want to use the mouse in say "Keil uVision" I have to switch back to the hardwired mouse.. lame.
-The side-side wheel function works almost No programs, not even MS Office 2007. The only one I find that it does work in is Google Chrome.. stange
-The buttons are a little on the small side.
-Not only are they small, the thumb button (on the side) is put too far forward, which means the mouse has to be held at an angle. This adds discomfort.
-The mouse is very small, so if you have medium to large size hands, then this mouse will cause cramps with long time usage. Especially with how it has to be held at an angle.
I bought this mouse because it has a nano transceiver and 5 buttons (one on each side).Read more ›
Suddenly, the mouse stops working completely. Pretty frustrated, 1 month in, I return it to Amazon. It was probably a random failure. They send me a new one, I'm happy with it. Two weeks pass, and then BAM! I'm out of a mouse again. Two mice, two defective mice. Turns out, after a few searches, this is a very common problem Microsoft doesn't seem to want to solve. Google "Microsoft Mobile Mouse 6000 overheat" to see more.
That was my second mouse of that model, and my last. I'm getting a refund. No more Microsoft. This mouse has caused me too much frustration for the benefit it brought. Conclusion: Do not buy this mouse whatever the circumstances. Not worth it!
The keyboard works great, however trying to use the mouse on carpet, leather couch, glass table, or even on a mousepad causes the mouse to act very erratically. It will basically stick to a certain part of the screen, and as I wildly move the mouse around it will jump periodically. It's very frustrating to use.
