Customer Reviews of Microsoft® Bluetrack Wireless Mouse 5000
This is a full size mouse, I have a large hand, and it feels very comfortable to use. The long battery life, transceiver that turns off the unit when docked in the belly of the mouse, and the ability to use the mouse everywhere makes it a winner.
LOVE IT !6/2/2012
I love this mouse. I must admit that it did feel bulky and weird to me at first but i got used it pretty quickly.
It feels pretty good in my hand (I have large hands) I've used it now for a few weeks of 8-hour work days (video editing) and found it very comfortable. The accuracy is very good, making it a good fit for everything from standard PC use, to photo and video editing.
The optical technology works fine even on my smooth gray plastic-laminate desktop and the scroll wheel is butter smooth with no ratcheting feel at all.
I purchased this mouse in August of last year (8/25/2011) and have only changed the batteries once. I use my mouse every day for about 10 hours. To turn the mouse off, you must unplug the USB transmitter and attach it to the mouse. I have read some users reviews that were not pleased with this feature, but I pack my lap top up every day and would have to remove the transmitter either way. I would recommend this mouse to anyone.
Very nice 5-button mouse8/28/2011
Very nice mouse. It could be better if it had a switch to shut it down and did not need to unplug the USB transmitter and attach to the mouse.
Superb Customer Service1/27/2011
Sometimes the best part of something is what happens when things go wrong. I ordered this for my child away at University. It arrived with a manufacturing defect. Upon contacting the seller a brand-new one (NOT REFURB) was in his hands w/in 3-days. No questions asked. And it works perfectly! That's the way things should be done. I'll buy again.
Seems to work flawlessly, and does all it is supposed to do.
Worth every penny. I got one for me and one for my wife. It does work on any surface even on my dogs' back. Only had for 1 week but very pleased, use with our Acer netbooks. Easy setup would highly recommend.
