It worked for a while, and then Windows 8 started disabling the driver due to errors.

UPDATE: After using the mouse for a little over 2 months, I find that the batteries last about 2 weeks.

Once connected, it occasionally stops working and I have to shut it off and 'reconnect' it.

But this is pretty slick. Pairing with my MacBook Pro 13" was easy and the absence of an extra dongle to lose is very much appreciated. A note of the difference between the retail and the business versions. The retail version has white or silver left and right buttons with a black stripe down the middle and comes in a blister package, the business version has black left and right buttons and has a silver stripe down the middle (the version that I preferred) and comes in a bulk cardboard box (at least mine did, but it also came from the Amazon Warehouse Deals site).

I happened to have the Microsoft Intellipoint driver software installed and it seems to work OTB with the bluetooth mouse.

The scroll wheel is tight and accurate. The back button is kinda mushy, to the point where you don't know if you've clicked it or not. I set it to bring up Spaces or keystroke F8 (be sure to deactivate the keyboard shortcut first before you set the key then reactivate it so it can work). The motion is smooth. I'm using alkaline batteries and expect them to wear down rather quickly since they came with the mouse and who knows how long they've been in the box. But I plan on switching to rechargables later.

A loooooot better than a wireless Mighty Mouse or Magic Mouse. By far.

UPDATE 2014-01-06: Close to 2 years of owning this mouse and it's become my main mouse replacing even my Logitech MX Revolution and Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 (same class of mouse, just larger and RF). Batteries last quite a while. I have long lasting 1000mAh AAA batteries in it. When I use lower mAh batteries and I notice the short amount of time it takes to drain. Make sure you get high mAh ones.

I've owned 3 of these mice over the last 4 years or so. Each one seems to only last about a year. They slowly start taking longer to pair and towards the end of their life, they start dropping out (lose their connection) more and more frequently until they finally won't connect to the computer at all. That first 9 months is pure bliss though. I would totally give this mouse a 5-star rating if they didn't inexplicably die after about 14 months. I've tried everything to resuscitate them; new batteries, restarting the computer, turning the mouse on/off, re-pairng them with the computer, removing all other paired devices from my computer's list of bluetooth devices... everything imaginable. At first, I thought it was a fluke/bad luck, but after having my 3rd mouse fail in 4 years, I'm almost starting to think it might be a deliberate design flaw so that they can sell more mice.
tl;dr - great mouse, but they only last about a year

UPDATE: 1/28/13 After a about four months, this mouse is eating through batteries like crazy! I've been using rechargables and I'm not sure if the batteries aren't very good, but the rechargables will last maybe a week or two before needing to be put back on the charger. Regular batteries seem to have the same problem, 1-3 weeks and they are dead too. In retrospect, I would not recommend this mouse to many folks. I will keep using it only because the lack of selection for Bluetooth mice is just silly.

9/10/12 I bought this mouse for a new ultrabook that only has two USB ports. It seemed silly to occupy one with a receiver for a regular wireless mouse so I picked this up.

This mouse is what I would consider compact or travel sized. It is small even for me (I have very small hands). Also, the back button is easy to hit if you have a wandering thumb like me.

The mouse does take a while to connect when my computer first starts up or when I am waking it up from sleep mode. This isn't really bothersome and I can't tell if it is a flaw with the mouse or a flaw with my bluetooth in my computer (I have bluetooth 4.0).

Either way, the number of bluetooth mice seems to be dwindling, so I'm glad I snapped this one up before you can't find them anymore!

Oh, batteries are included which is a total plus!

It's a nice size and shape, and feels good in your hand, but the power saving algorithm puts it to sleep after only a few seconds of none motion (I've noticed several other people complaining of this), then it takes a rather large movement to wake it up again. Also, the wheel does double duty as a center button, but the switch is so light weight, that you can't touch the wheel without "clicking" the center button, even if you try to be gentle. Bottom line, if you're using it for anything serious, you have to keep tickling the cursor by wriggling your hand around constantly (or it goes to sleep and it's hard to wake up), and you can't touch the wheel without accidentally clicking on something. Mine is in the trash can now.

I bought this mouse because I hate the little dongle that I'm always losing or breaking because I'm too lazy to take the dongle out of my laptop.

Pros:
1) Easy to pair

2) Tracks very well on most surfaces

3) Bluetooth without a dongle!! (Why is this so rare?)

4) Not overly expensive

5) Scroll wheel is nice feeling

Cons:
1) Cheap build. It feels solid but the back button wiggles a lot and the mouse's feet aren't level. Also the plastic edges are sharp leaving a not refined feel.

2) Too small. Given it's a travel mouse, but my hands are not at all big and this thing makes my hand cramp up trying to hold it.

3) This one is not the mouse's fault but Windows' fault for lack of foresight, but ultimately it is the mouse's problem. Windows 7 doesn't treat this as an external mouse thus won't disable your trackpad leaving you to do it manually. With my track pad there is no way to enable it via keyboarding your way to the options in control panel so... There's that.

4) There's only a terribly placed back button, which is WAY too easy to press by accident, and no forward button (not that they are terribly useful for me anyway)

5) The middle mouse button (on the scroll wheel) is too easily pressed when scrolling.

Overall the lack of dongle is nice but I'd rather deal with a dongle with my Logitech Anywhere MX mouse then deal with the track pad not disabling automatically (again, not the mouse's fault) and the lousy middle and back buttons. I'll just try to be less careless/lazy.
