    I recommend strongly. Great value for money. Perfect color match and perfect design. Very sensitive. Easy to switch off to save the battery life.

    I replaced a logitech mouse with this Microsoft unit. The logitech ate up batteries, and the off/on switch was very touchy - if not set precisely, the mouse kept turning off. The off/on switch on this Microsoft mouse is superior, it stays put. My only gripe about this mouse is the size. It's smaller than a standard mouse, and for my simple games, not as easy to handle. For everything else, it's fine.

    The mouse is so cheap and it looks great at the first glance. Nice design, comfortable, with bluetrack technology it works even in glass! But the battery life is extremely short! The initial duracel battery lasted only 2 weeks and now I try to remember to switch it off every time I don't use it. I wish it had an automatic system to switch off by itself. At the box it says "up to 8 month" battery life which is not true for sure.

    I bought this because i needed to have a GOOD back up for when my bluetooth Magic TrackPad becomes "not wurking as designed" because Apple did not design the case well... good looking? yes but never at the cost of function... hahaha... my little Apple dig! This mouse has great tracking ability and comfortable to use... pretty good with my fine tuning in Photoshop also... the sale price made it a no brainer and i highly recommend to anyone... back up or not... namaste

    I bought this mouse to replace a different brand I like how it clicks and that it will work on surfaces a lot of wireless mice won't.

    This mouse works perfect. My only complaint is that it doesn't work well when I use my 32" Sony Bravia HDTV as a PC monitor.

    It is great i bought this for a replacement of my desktop mouse because my desktop mouse keeps making the disconnect and connect noise and it keep disconnecting while i am doing stuff so got tired of that and bought this little mouse and it works better than ever but the only thing i don't like is when i use the mouse wheel. I only scroll once and the internet page scrolls down alot but doesn't bother me much because i now use the internet scroll bar instead of using the scroll bar on the mouse.

    This Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse exactly does what it says it does. I find this very comfortable in my hand, it has great range and works well on all surfaces I tried. Plus also seems to have good battery life. great product and good value for money.

    The Microsoft - Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 in Loch Ness Gray is a great product for the price. It practically set itself up and it is comfortable to use.

    I bought this when it was on sale. I don't think I could've made a better decision for the money.

    Great Mouse. It's the second time I buy the very same model, I use one for my PC and another for my laptop. It's highly recommended!

    Bought this mouse after my notebook's touchpad died (needs replacing). Nearly everything about this mouse was satisfactory: function, ease-of-use, blue-track works on nearly any surface, ergonomically comfortable. The price at Best Buy was decent at around $20, I didn't want to spend more. And I'm glad I didn't. In three months I've replaced the battery twice. Not such a big deal, but, not as advertised-- (I believe it claims to last 6mo's). Next, the mid-button scroll wheel just stopped scrolling. It still works to initiate cascading windows, position the mouse icon. But it no longer scrolls. This, after just 3 months. Though the price of this mouse is reasonable, I refuse to accept that $20 buys three months of complete product functionality. (Especially when this is simply an interim device between now and when I decide to replace the faulty touchpad). I would not buy this mouse again.

    I inserted the USB transmitter in to my notebook port. The unit is so small and tight I had to use needle nose pliers to remove it. I switche dit to my desktop and went back to using my old MS 3000 on my notebook.

    I was looking for a wireless mouse for my laptop that would just be a plug in and use. I like the new blue light technology because i'm not always carrying a mouse pad or around compatible surfaces for the old laser mice. Also love how it has a power switch on the bottom of the mouse so i don't have to take out the USB.

    The good: It looks and feels nice. Also, the middle click is nice and quietish. But that's it. When you use it as a mouse it's the worst thing ever. Oh, also Bluetrack. The bad: Where do I begin? As soon as I plugged it in, it caused trouble. It misses about half of the clicks I try to make. Sometimes it doesn't scroll, and nearly all of the time it skips around the screen. Maybe there are signal issues, maybe I got a bad mouse, but this thing is terrible. By terrible, I mean it might be the single most infuriating computer product I've ever purchased. And I've purchased parts that were DOA. I'd rather use a Mac than this piece of garbage (and I'm a die hard PC guy, so that's saying something). Overall, this mouse is the worst thing that was ever let loose on humanity. It might've been created by the devil, to lead us astray. I don't really know. What I do know is that this mouse is the worst thing ever in the history of Earth. Also, there's a bit of lag when you use the middle click. Maybe half a second, but combined with everything else, enough to drive you up the walls. I'd use it as a paperweight, but it would probably fail at that too. Other thoughts: Microsoft is usually a good company for this stuff. I think I'll stick to wired mice from now on. At least until they hire mouse creators who know what they're doing. Unfortunately I'm an idiot and figured that maybe it would get better so I threw away the receipt. So now I'm stuck with dropping some more money to get a mouse that actually works as a mouse. At least this one wasn't too expensive I guess.

    I bought this wireless mouse because of the very small USB and I liked the design of the mouse. I have had it a few months and the USB got really hot and now it no longer works. After doing a quick search online, I have found that a lot of people have had this same issue. I guess I will need to go back to Logitech. Out of all the mice I have had to replace on my computers over the years, I have never replaced the logitech one. I have had to replace all my microsoft ones, the longest lasting about a year.

    When it comes to mice I have always trusted Microsoft and they really did out did themselves on this mouse. The plastic doesn't feel cheap and the mouse has a decent weight to it that makes it feel very durable. The blue laser works on almost every surface that I have used, including a mouse pad.

    I had been looking for a mouse that would track over glossy surfaces, and read about Microsoft's BlueTrack technology. Even though Microsoft is quick to say it won't track over glass and glossy surfaces, they are too modest. I've used the 3500 on ALL types of glossy surfaces, and it performed perfectly; without a hitch. The tranceiver is so small it's not a hassle or danger to leave it in a USB port permanently, and the mouse itself is not too big or too small (like many wireless mice). It did not come with a travel pouch to keep it from getting damaged in a backpack or laptop bag, but other than that, honestly, I can't find anything else to complain about. A wonderful product.

    I haven't had a chance to use this yet as I am waiting for Internet access. Rating based on cost. Tentative reccomendation to a friend.

    I just received the Microsoft mouse, which was on sale. I love it! It installed easily on Windows 7. What I mostly like about it is that it seems to work well on a variety of surfaces, even uneven surface. It does what a mouse is suppoed to do.
