    I find this mouse easy to use. It has an on/off switch to turn it off when not in use to save the battery. Have not had a problem with it.

    I love this mouse, I have one at work too. Never have any issues that sometimes happen with wireless, always works great. Battery seems to last a really long time too.

    Bought this for around 14 bucks and I kinda expected a performance for the price. Feels heavy at long usage (I am a gamer, so I can notice it very well). Responsiveness is of average, but one thing that I love about this product is the dongle for it cna be easily stored beneath at a push of a button.

    I bought this mouse and it lasted only a month before it crashed on me. Very disappointed in what I thought was a good product from an established company like Microsoft. Save your money on this one, I went back to using Logitech wireless mouse and no problems.

    This is the my favorite mouse. I've purchased 2 for my laptops. Set up is too easy! The mouse feels great in my hand; I'm a lefty, 6 feet tall with long fingers. My only complaint is the price. but if you want quality, then you have to fork over the cash. Try a few other brands to see what you like the best.

    On the positive side, the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 works. I bought this wireless mouse to relieve me from having to use the trackpad on my new laptop. Upon turning on the device, turning it on (it has its own power switch to conserve the battery), and pluggling the wireless transceiver into a USB port, Windows 7 recognized it immediately and downloaded the most current software for it. A configuration screen came up, I accepted the defaults, and it was ready to go. It had no problem tracking on the surface I was using, though I did not throw much of a challenge at it. There was never any loss of connection. The transceiver is suitably small, which made it possible to keep plugged into the laptop even when it was being stowed in a bag. Unfortunately for me, I have larger than average hands, and this mouse seemed to me to be very small. My hand did not cup it comfortably, and I have used generic, non-ergonomic wired mice the fit my palm much better than this device. In fact, I found myself tending to use the trackpad instead of the mouse (perhaps out of habit, but I also ended up preferring the pad to this mouse). Moreover, the mouse wheel was extremely stiff and difficult to scroll. I had to put so much force into scrolling the wheel that I often ended up clicking it on accident, which of course resulted in the mouse performing actions I did not want. I am returning this mouse and hoping to find a larger one with a mouse wheel that turns more smoothly.

    I needed a basic wireless mouse for my laptop. This one is light weight, comfortable in my hand and well priced. Only had it for 2 months and I like it.

    The product is so easy to set up: simply plug in and start using the mouse. Sometimes the mouse motions or scrollbar uses are not captured - that would be the only challenge. Otherwise functions like a wireless mouse should. Not the best on the market, but gets the job done for a decent price.

    Just picked up this new model from Microsoft and it is excellent in every way. The transciever is nice and small and just plug and play and you're ready to go.The mouse also has a ON/OFF switch on the bottom so the battery won't drain when not in use. Highly reccommended!

    Very compact mouse that is easy to take with you anywhere. The nano receiver is super small and is capable of being left in you laptop. Fits very comfortably in your hand and runs smooth over almost any surface

    Was weary about buying a cheap wireless mouse but this is far from cheap quality. It starts working as soon as you plug it in.

    I love this mouse. The best thing about this it works on any surface. You don't need a mouse pad. I used it on the carpet in my house with not a single issue. You can't find a better mouse for the price!! I like it so much everyone in my family has one.

    I had purchased a Blue ray mouse for my new laptop so that I wouldn't have to use up a USB port with a dongle (do they still call them that?) for a wireless mouse. Unfortunately, the performance of the mouse was erratic. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. It failed regularly and I would have to reboot it (the mouse) to get it going again for a few minutes. The frustration finally got to me and I purchased this wireless mouse, which works great and is a good size for use with a laptop while still being adequately sized to be comfortable to use.

    I chose to buy this mouse because it was a great price and had relatively good reviews. It was priced pretty well at $15 but really did not function as well as the reviews said it would. After a MONTH AND A HALF, the first (fresh AA) battery died. 1 1/2 months is too fast for a mouse battery to go dead. So, I tried another different fresh AA. After a little over one month that also went dead. At this point, I was already passed the return period for the mouse. Now I'm stuck with it and I'm already on my third battery. It also DOES NOT TRACK VERY WELL at all on white surfaces. This can get quite annoying. However, it seems to work well on a smooth, black surface. Overall, look for a different cheap mouse, because THIS ONE IS NOT WORTH ITS GOOD PRICE. I hope this review saves you the $10-$20 you otherwise might have wasted buying this mouse. I've was always happy with the Logitech mouse I had a work. I think I'll buy another one of those.
