For the price (under twenty dollars) this is a darn good wireless laser mouse. However, there is an inherent problem with getting it to charge in the cradle. Search online & you will see what I mean. There are many solutions offered but the one that worked for me is this: 1) Replace the battery that comes with the mouse with a name-brand rechargeable battery (such as Energizer). 2) Create a "bump" in the battery that will push down the metal switch/lever that the battery sits on. I did this by scotch taping a small rolled up piece of aluminum foil to the battery in the spot that would hit the switch. You will see the switch (flat piece of metal) when you remove the battery. 3) Battery charges fine now. 4) Why is MS still selling these with a KNOWN/DOCUMENTED problem? Ask Bill.

A major disappointment

by Gil Gilmore on 7/6/2011

This mouse has been a grave disappointment. The rechargeable feature has been a big fail as the supplied recharging base fails to recharge the mouse. The only alternative has been to remove the battery and charge externally. I tried other online-suggested work-arounds to no avail. Also, the mouse is not nearly as sensitive to different surfaces as the wired mouse that shipped with my laptop. It works best on a conventional mouse pad and sporadically on other surfaces. Not recommended. Read More
