  • Amazon.com

    With high-definition optical technology, four-way scrolling, comfort for righties and lefties, customizable buttons, and more, the Microsoft Comfort Mouse 3000 is the perfect upgrade to your existing mouse. An integrated scroll wheel lets you scroll through documents and Web pages more quickly and easily with this ergonomic, four-button mouse. Plus, the new Magnifier lets you easily enlarge and edit details.


    Zoom in on your work with the innovative Magnifier.

    Use the scroll wheel to scroll horizontally and vertically.
    Microsoft High-Definition Technology
    Whether you're working on a document, perusing a Web page, or playing the latest video game, you can enhance your performance with the Comfort Mouse 3000's high-definition technology. It delivers more precision and responsiveness while offering smoother tracking on more surfaces than ever before. To put it simply, it's the most advanced tracking system available.

    Full Tilt
    Scroll up and down and side to side more smoothly, efficiently, and easily with the innovative four-way tilt wheel. It's simply a more efficient way to navigate documents, spreadsheets, and Web pages. The entire scroll wheel tilts from side to side, acts as a button, and reacts to how quickly you roll the wheel to enable smooth, accurate maneuverability. For example, if you're working with a super-wide worksheet, you can tilt the wheel from side to side to scroll right and left, without clicking tiny scroll arrows.

    All Hands Welcome
    Lefties rejoice! The Comfort Mouse 3000 is made to be used in either hand, making it highly versatile. No matter which hand you use, customizable buttons offer quick access to the media, programs, and files you use most often.

    Like many people I tend to use the middle button quite a lot to open new tabs in my web browser. If you are one of these people, look elsewhere, because the Comfort Optical Mouse 3000 is awful.

    It takes quite a bit of effort to actually depress the mousewheel, and when you do, it doesn't always register as a mouseclick (despite a fairly audible sound when you do so). I don't know if it's a driver issue or a hardware issue but it sporadically happens with every Comfort Optical 3000 on every PC in our company. Other Microsoft mice on the same PCs using the same drivers work fine.

    I miss my old "Dove soap bar" Microsoft Mouse 2.0. That said, this mouse is the latest in a long line of good, basic, classic mice. It is the symmetrical design that, well, I prefer, and it has the benefit of having a larger scroll wheel than some of the newer pointing devices on the market. Unlike previous MS mice, this wheel does not have "click gradations," so you may have to get used to the "free" scrolling action.

    But overall, the size is good for an average man's hand, the buttons large with positive feedback, and the click action of the scroll wheel is near effortless. Both vertical and new, horizontal scrolling is handy in some larger applications. It makes scrolling in Excel on both axes (up/down, left/right) PARTICULARLY convenient.

    The addition of the third, thumb button can be used for any number of very useful functions, programmed with the IntelliPoint software. The long list includes a magnifying pane, double-clicking, page navigation in Explorer and Internet browsers, Show/hide desktop, and a rather interesting "Gaming toggle" to which you can program two sets of keystrokes. It can also be clicked to boost precision, to exert extra-fine control of your cursor movement; users of Photoshop, Windows Movie Maker and large screen resolutions (1600x1200 and up) will really appreciate this toggle.

    If you're looking for a simple, affordable mouse for your desktop, or to travel with your laptop, it's hard to find as good a mouse, at as affordable a price. Last bonus: it looks nice, not garish.

    In March 2005 I bought an Apple G5 and nearly two years later the only thing I can say that was cheap about it was the mouse: no right-click and the clicking for cutting and pasting on my website stopped working. Additionally, it started to make a creaking sound, another sign of cheapness.I didn't want to spend 50 bucks on the "Mighty Mouse" so I took a chance on the Microsoft 3000 at half the price. Following the instructions, I did not put the Microsoft 3000 mouse into my USB port until AFTER I downloaded the included software, which took 5 minutes or so. The results have been excellent. More mouse comfort, easier gliding motion, right click function, magnification function. The 3000 has proven to be a more than worthy upgrade for my iMac G5.

    The middle button (mouse wheel) needs to be clicked just so to get the click to register. The click is incredibly heavy. Operating the wheel tilt feature requires so much force, it's almost unusable. This is a repetitive strain injury waiting to happen.

    Occasionally, while performing click-and-drag operations, the mouse will "unclick" before the button mechanically "unclicks". This makes dragging files around very exciting. Who knows what folder they will wind up in!? I had the same problem (worse, actually) with a Microsoft Explorer Mouse I tried a month ago.

    This mouse does not work on my desktop (other optical mice work fine), and *requires* a mouse pad. I haven't seen that problem since the laser mice from the 1980's!

    Do not buy.

    I have several complaint about this mouse...

    1. the center wheel is Very hard to click...
    so it makes opening links in a new tab,(FireFox) Very Annoying...

    2. it's i little stiff to scroll sideways with the Wheel
    (witch is why I bought it)it makes my finger shake...

    3. the center wheel doesn't spin freely,
    there's some resistances, witch feels awkward...

    4. the wheel on my old mouse clicked,
    it provided a tactile feedback, witch I liked...

    5. the left and the right buttons are way to sensitive,
    you cant rest your fingers on them at all,
    (if you do, you've clicked on a link)
    so you end up holding your fingers up in the air,
    witch I find painful after a while...

    good points

    1. I like the way the Lft&Rit buttons don't appear separate from the rest of the mouse.
    2. I like the little Magnifying button on the side
    3. I did like the new driver,(I didn't think I would)
    (you do have to install the driver if you want to scroll Lft&Rit)
    and being able to remap the buttons.

    When my previous mouse started to give me problems, I chose this mouse.

    It is simple to use, with very smooth operation.Like its name, it is comfortable to use too. The controls are simple.

    I also like the look of it, I was looking at a very flashy red model, then decided on this one instead, as it's very reasonably priced.

    I am very happy with it and would recommend it to anyone replacing their mouse.
