Just what I ordered5/30/2012
This is the best MS mouse I have ever had. It has an extreme range and is very comfortable. In a word "perfect"
seems a bit laggy1/6/2011
I bought 2 of these, for work and home. The one at home is acting strange, the horizontal tracking seems off a bit. the one at work is a bit laggy sometimes; in the mouse pointer tracking/following the actual mouse. the wireless usb adapter has a storage spot on the bottom of the mouse, but if you use that, you can not also charge the mouse. not a big deal, but it would be nice, since I'm worried about loosing the usb adapter. It has a glowing bottom, but this only comes on right after taking it off the charger. wish there was a way to make it come on when I want it on.
this mouse is good...you have to pay attention with charging the mouse..if not is a pain when it dies in the middle of working....:0)
Blue mouse from Microsoft12/28/2010
This once $80 mouse has finally reached the affordable price catagory. It works just as advertised, on any surface except clear glass. The blue glow that lets you know the mouse is ready for action shines for about 5 seconds then dims. Flawless tracking. Using a single AA nickel metal battery the mouse works for hours and hours. When it's in need of a charge there's a red led that starts to blink. I'd like to see the charger have a more positive connection with the mouse, it just sits on top of a set of contacts. However, the system works fine. Great performer, works just like it's wired.
Mouse nice for big hands, questionable experience12/22/2010
I bought this mouse after much searching and found its size to be appropriate for my hands. What I received was akin to a package I'd get from China resellers on ebay rather than buy.com. The packaging wasn't fully sealed, though the mouse was new. Moreover, the power adapter for the charger was of the 220V Asia connectors with a asia to north america converter included. It maybe China's influence on products for the US, but I am just not used to receiving adapters and converters yet. Sign of things to come, I suppose.
good price, but hard to grip12/21/2010
I love the price for this mouse. However, this mouse is not comfortable for long term usage. I bought both mini explorer and the regular explorer. The mini is much comfortable in size for long term holding. The regular size mouse is too wide, so ur finger tip is sore after long term stretch.
First of all I thought the item I was going to get was brand new out of the package. But when I got the mouse it seems that someone had return their mouse and sold that exact item to me. I mean it was just sealed with a packaging tape and it seems that the battery was not even the original then the mouse had scratches on some parts of it. Overall the mouse works adequately, battery life doesn't even last past 24 hours. I guess I would think twice again from these bastards for selling a returned item but also failing to mention that it is an open box.
I already had purchased and used the Mini Explorer for about 3 months. This unit is too big and you tend to bump the rick-click button when using it. It gets to be a real nuisance! I switched back to the Mini version.
The mouse performs great, I only have one minor problem, there is a sharp corner on the bottom that snags on some surfaces, but other than that awesome blue optical.
Best I've used - bought 2 more11/8/2010
Great mouse, very comfortable. I bought two more right away for co-worker gifts. Nice blue glow. What more??
This mouse is awesome. I love it. Best $20 I've spent. It's everything I wanted. wireless, rechargeable, comfortable, it's great! It would have been nice if it came with a little protective bag or something, but it's cool. I also like how you can use it on virtually any surface. Oh and the range on it is awesome.

The product is very handy, and the rechargeable dock is great. No more battery replacement. Comfortable to use too, on any surface as advertised.
Microsoft Explorer Mouse - 5AA-000015/1/2009
WOW- what a mouse, it out uses my Verbatrim wireless rechargeable mouse by far. Other people who use my PC are really impressed with the ease of it. and I just really like how it doesn't jump around on the page when scrolling around. It is smooth always ready and has a comfortable grip for the right handed person. It's cost was minimumal and it's peformance at it;s ready all the time. I am a happy camper when it comes to using this product and highly recommend it to everyone looking for easy product to use.
Best Mouse I've Used As Of Yet2/9/2009
I've been around computers since the days of the TRS80 and the Apple II, so I've seen and used a lot of mice. I was skeptical of Microsoft's claims about BlueTech, but decided to try it and see. It arrived on Friday about 4:00 PM. I unboxed it and charged it up. I put the mouse pad away, using bare wood, stains and all to try it on. It worked flawlessly. I couldn't get it to make a mistake at all. It just tracked properly and never hiccuped. I highly recommend this mouse to anyone who needs a mouse that will work in ANY situation.
