This really is an outstanding product. Tracking is excellent on every surface I've had to use it on, including a fake sheepskin throw that I have on my sofa for my dog. The USB dongle is very small and can be left in the laptop. So small, in fact, that it's difficult to remove, but I no longer want to do so. The mouse has a real on-off slider. I haven't owned the mouse long enough to change the battery, so battery life has to be at least acceptable. Overall, I much prefer this mouse to its full size cousin, the MS Explorer Wireless Bluetrack mouse. I own both. This mouse has better ergonomics, a real on-off switch, and long life on a single AA battery (versus the Explorer which has a rechargeable battery that won't last one day; plus no off switch). I took one grade off of value for the high price. Also, one grade off of overall satisfaction because this mouse has its own proprietary 2.4 GHz wireless dongle instead of Bluetooth. Get a wireless keyboard and now you've got two dongles sticking out of your laptop.

-The Irish Patient quote

This is a nice mouse. It replaced the Logitech v500. I consider it ergonomic because it fits well in my hand and has a smooth scrolling wheel. It has many buttons to customize but I have not bothered with that as the mouse is easy to set up. You plug in the nano receiver and Windows Vista premium automatically recognized it. The receiver is small so I constantly am able to leave it in the usb port while traveling. I like the on off button on the back of the mouse that conserves power on the go. My over all satisfication is 4 because Microsoft did not supply a carrying case with this Mouse so eventually it is going to have wear and tear from being with my laptop. They supplied a CD software but I feel that since it is a Microsoft mouse, the software should come loaded with Windows. For example, the buttons cannot be customized without installing the software provided. It is not a big deal, but I don't want see the justification of installing Microsoft Mouse software in a Microsoft Windows Premium environment. The fine print on Microsoft website also states that Blue track technology will not work on Glass or mirrored surfaces. I got it for 5.99 because I had a gift card from Buy.com so that is a huge bargain.

Product Overview

Full-Featured, Go-Anywhere Style

Comfortably use your computer in more places than ever before, like on granite countertops or carpets, by relying on Microsoft BlueTrack Technology in this wireless mobile mouse. Make a style statement at your desk or on the go with the sleek, smooth design, and enjoy a wide array of features to get more done. For example, navigate smoothly with the four-way tilt-scroll wheel and use the five programmable buttons to quickly access the applications and media that you use the most. When you are ready to pack up and go, you’ll hardly notice the tiny transceiver. Leave it in your computer’s USB port, or tuck it into the bottom of the mouse.

Microsoft’s proprietary BlueTrack™ Technology works on more surfaces than both optical and laser mice.
It uses high-angle imaging optics to generate an accurate picture of the surface.
