Convenience in a small package

Pros:Small; Good Wireless Reception; Accurate

Cons:occasional loss of connectivity

The Bottom Line: Good mouse. Excellent experience for the price.


The Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 is a must for people like me that are not very fond of the touch pad that comes with most notebooks these days. I would scroll documents using the mouse wheel any day as compared to having to adjust my fingers to a specific position on the touch pad to scroll.

The mouse looks cool with its two tone colors. It works with a Standard AA size battery cell in its belly. Pressing a button allows the user to lift the cover to access the battery compartment. The mouse has a very sleek ergonomic design; it fits right in my palm. The mouse wheel is very comfortable to work with. The Wireless receiver is about 2 inches in size and looks like a conventional pen drive. Battery lasts for more than 4 months with active use. The best part about the mouse is that it can be used on any surface possible. As a matter of fact, I am writing this review from my bed and the mouse works perfectly on my bed sheets. Works great for my office work and is ideal for playing those online games.

I guess the only bad part about is the occasional loss of connectivity between the mouse and the receiver. The receiver will start blinking in this case. Simply remove the receiver and put it back in the USB drive to fix this problem. Also be careful when you are on the move. One of my colleagues broke the receiver while packing up the laptop (the receiver was plugged in).

Overall my experience with this mouse has been very good and I would definitely recommend it.
