Pros:Shape, Price, Ease of installation, Smoothness

Cons:None

The Bottom Line: I highly recommend this mouse. It is easy to install and use and it is very smooth.


When I purchased a laptop recently, I also purchased a wireless mouse to go along with it. As I assumed all wireless mice were the same, I just picked one from the Dell website when I ordered. As Microsoft is a huge name, I thought that would be a good one. I was right.

The Microsoft (805529787261) Mouse has been my best friend when working with on my laptop. The following is a list of the many positives of using this mouse:

Ease of installation To install this mouse, all you have to do is plug the wireless controller into a USB port on your laptop and start working. That's it. There's nothing to install. Just plug it in and go.

Smoothness This is by far the smoothest mouse I've ever used. I've had numerous different brands of mice on my various desktop computers over the years, and the Microsoft (805529787261) Mouse is the best. As it's an optical mouse, there's no compartment to get dirty so you never have to clean it out. The optics of it make it as smooth as any mouse you've ever used.

Shape We all know that all mice are basically similar in shape. Each company tries to make their a little different to fit the average hand better. Well, Microsoft has hit the nail on the head with the Microsoft (805529787261) Mouse. It fits my hand better than any other mouse I've tried. It is a definite improvement over the older Microsoft wired mouse I have at my desk at work. It is also ergonomically made to fit right and left-handed people the same. And, the buttons are customizable so you can switch the right and left buttons easily.

Price As Drew Carey says, the price is right. The Microsoft (805529787261) Mouse was just under $20 when I bought my laptop. I'm not sure if this was a better deal than normal because I ordered it with the laptop or not, but I don't think so. The quality I got with this mouse if worth twice what I paid.

As you've read all of the positives, you must be thinking that there have to be some negatives. The main negative I have found is that I didn't buy this mouse a few years earlier. In some other reviews on Epinions, I've noticed others don't like the fact that this mouse cannot be turned off. This is not a problem for me, but this could be a drawback with this mouse.

As you can probably tell, I highly recommend this mouse. It is the best mouse I've ever owned.
