 It's so close to fantastic

This mouse is great, for some things. Its incredibly easily to get up and running and is extremely smooth and precise. The extra silly button on the side is a great addition too as you can get it to do almost anything and the default is a handy zoom function for zooming. My main gripe with it is the scroll wheel; although very nice for traversing documents and websites, for games (especially where the scroll wheel changes weapon) it can be a pain. Also sometimes when you press the silly side button during a game, and it has an adverse function assigned to it, it can minimise the game. This slight annoyance does not take away from the fact this is a great wireless mouse and isn't that small really, only if you had mad massive hands would you feel like a giant. Also if you are a giant avoid this mouse.

 Sick of your laptop touchpad? Get this!

If you're anything like me and hate having to use that annoying touch pad on laptops then you'll certainly be looking for a laptop mouse.

After you've torn or cut your way through the all annoying plastic packaging you'll find the mouse, one AA Energizer battery, USB receiver, CD-ROM and instructions. Plug the USB into your laptop or PC and away you go.

The mouse works on Windows Vista without a problem, and I didn't have to install anything from the CD it's just plug and play. The mouse is certified to work on Windows Vista since it has Microsoft's Certified for Vista logo on the packaging too.

The mouse is light, and really good to hold as it's rubberised round the sides, it's pretty accurate too. Allthough on my coffee table when using it, it wasn't that good so I had to use a mouse mat.

When you're done using the mouse you just pop the USB receiver in the back of the mouse. There is a button the receiver holds down which stops the mouse from draining the battery. Not sure how long battery life is as I've just got this, but somebody said on their review it's about 6 months which is great.

Really good quality product from Microsoft as you'd expect, and I highly recommend it if you are fustrated with that touch pad.

Thank you to Play.com for an excellent service and product as always.

This really is a great mouse. It's not too small to be uncomfortable but is a good size for portability. It works fine with a Mac straight out of the box without installing all that MS intellipoint rubbish.

Highly recommended!!

 so comfortable 3

this nifty little mouse.
I am very pleased with my purchase, it's a doddle to set up, installation was no more than 15 minutes and most of that was trying to get into the blista packaging! fits in any laptop bag and so small you barely notice it. The moment you plug it in it works, battery life is very impressive (about 3-6 months). It uses a single AA battery that even comes supplied! what n amazing lil squeaker!
