I bought the Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer for Bluetooth, and I am disappointed.
Rafael Viaud
Installing the driver software for this product on Windows XP will prevent any other Bluetooth device driver software from ever being installed on that computer.
Amazon Customer
The mouse came with a little Bluetooth dongle for the USB port, but I figured, "Hey, it's Bluetooth, that's a standard, it'll work".

I bought this mouse to use with my new Macintosh PowerBook 17" with built-in BlueTooth. The mouse does not officially list Mac as a supported platform (go figure) but it works great. Just put in the batteries, press the button on the bottom of the mouse and go through the mouse set-up on OS X (requires 10.2.5 or later, I think.) After that, it's a great mouse. Takes a moment to wake up sometimes if you haven't used it in a while, but not a problem. The one problem is that the mouse is sold only with a BlueTooth USB adapter (and a really complicated one) which I don't need. This must bring the price up. ...Moreover I was thinking of getting the BT keyboard, but I'd end up with another adapter I don't need.

I bought the Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer for Bluetooth, and I am disappointed. I consider it to have some major flaws:
1- It should have an on/off switch to take it in my bag without finishing the batteries.
2- I expected that a "mouse for Bluetooth" or "Bluetooth mouse" should work with standard Bluetooth transceivers, but the Microsoft IntelliMouse for Bluetooth, only works with the Microsoft transceiver included with the mouse.
3- The Microsoft "Bluetooth Transceiver" should be a full function Bluetooth Transceiver, but the one included with the mouse and its Windows XP update "does not yet support Personal Area Network (PAN) features, such as personal digital assistant (PDA) synchronization" (taken from the Read Me file). That means you will not be able to synchronize with your Palm device, as you can with other BT Transceivers.
If you are already using BT you will be better off with the Logitech MX700 or any other mouse.
Some interesting points covered in the Read Me file for the Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer for Bluetooth, that you should know before you buy it:
1.1 [YOU MUST] Remove any existing Bluetooth transceiver device and its software before running Setup
1.2 Previously installed pointing device programs MUST be removed before running Setup
1.4 Disabling the PS/2 port in the BIOS program may result in an installation error
1.8 Using multiple Bluetooth transceivers not supported
1.10 Mouse may not respond immediately if it is in low-power mode
1.14 Reassigned button commands may not work as expected for certain programs or games

After reading the earlier reviews at this website, we decided to experiment with this mouse. Our installation was with an IBM ThinkPad T40P, a laptop that has an integral Bluetooth radio. We were interested in using this mouse *without* the Microsoft-provided USB-attached transceiver.
Initial experimentation with the T40P and the Windows XP Bluetooth attachment wizard produced a good result. We had to trial several speed settings before being satisfied. The optical sensor performance is not as good as Microsoft's tethered Intellimouse products. It is fussier about the surface quality.
We were interested in trying the Intellipoint (4.9) software. It offers a variety of additional customizations that will be helpful to some users. But sadly, this is where it all goes wrong with the ThinkPad T40P. The software installs fine but is incompatible with IBM's UltraNav drivers and removes them upon installation.
The IntelliMouse software is wonderful, but the IBM ThinkPad UltraNav drivers that control the builtin pointing-stick and touch-pad devices are replaced by Microsoft's own generic--far less robust--versions.
While the hardware still functions, forget about using the keyboard without having the cursor jump randomly to another part of the screen during routine typing. You'll think (and eventually scream at the PC in horror), "what the heck is going on here?" UltraNav obviously includes critical and specifically tuned debounce performance that was overlooked in Microsoft's replacement drivers.
The ideal solution would be to have the peaceful coexistance UltraNav for the IBM hardware and Intellipoint 4.9 for the Bluetooth mouse, but alas that combination is not easily achieved.

The IntelliMouse software is wonderful, but the installation program insists on removing the UltraNav drivers that control the builtin pointing-stick and touch-pad devices and replaces them with Microsoft's own--far less robust--versions. While the hardware still functions, forget about typing more than a line or two without having the cursor jump to another part of the screen. You'll think (and eventually shout in horror), "what the heck is going on here?"
So for those of you with the question of whether the Bluetooth Intellimouse works without Microsoft's transceiver, the answer is "yes." If the software is going to back out your PC's hardware-specific device drivers, don't install it.
