Nice and small so it's easily transportable with a laptop.

Its size is small and compact, yet even posessing very large hands, I find it easy and comfortable to use.
GameMaker
I purchased this for my desktop PC, not a laptop, and the cord is less than 3 feet long!!!

As far as simple, no-frills compact wired optical mice go, this one is the best for the price. No silly rubberized appliques to peel off after a couple of weeks of good use. Four nice, big Teflon feet, wide "millipede" scroll wheel, sturdy construction, and a great feel in the hand. Light, small, and comfortable. Clean, smooth tracking on uniform surfaces. Extra long 6' cable is perfect for desktop situations where the CPU is a greater than typical distance from the mousing surface. And the cable they used is of excellent quality that feels like it will last forever without twisting or snapping a contact at either the USB plug or mouse housing ends! I have one on my laptop, and one on my dekstop. They both perform flawlessly. Good job Microsoft. You got this one right.

Got this for a new notebook computer because I hate using touchpads. Also, I didn't want to fiddle with batteries and since it will be mainly a desktop replacement computer rather than a road warrior one, didn't mind having a cord.

The cord is kind of interesting-looking, not the same color as the mouse which is rather unusual, and is extra long so I keep it tied up with the wire tie it came with.

Only gripe is that having to keep the cord partially tied up makes the mouse sort of move on its own whenever I let go of it due to the tension in the cord.

Otherwise I love it: it's just the right size, the scroll wheel also doubles as a button, everything feels great ergonomically.

Unfortunately I bought this item assuming that the other reviewers here gave an accurate description, that the cable is 6' long. Well I just received it today and the cable is around 3' long. I guess over the years, Microsoft chopped the cable in half. So do NOT buy this if, like me, you are expecting a 6' long cable, it's actually fairly short and thus it is nearly unusable for a desktop, only good for laptops.

That's where almost everyone I've told this to has gone wrong. This one and all other optical ones I've tried work wonderfully on a smooth and clean surface but can jump wildly and randomly on fabric pads or pads that have images or intricate lines and colors. Also this mouse has three buttons and if you don't game that's all you need. Your standard R-L click and your roller btton for page viewing. There is nothing wrong with mine as long as I put in on a relatively solid color with a plastic/vinyl top. If you have a problem with yours, pick it up and blow out the laser hole and wipe your hand over the pad/table, so fare that has solve the problems I've had with it. I like it a lot because it's quiet when you click it, smooth and quiet when you use the roller and it's so light it glides with little effort.

The only reason it got 4 stars is because the roller button is a little weak and takes some getting used to avoid pushing it down buy accident.

This black mouse is an unbelievable downgrade from a previous gray color mouse - “Microsoft Notebook Optical Mouse”, ASIN: B00006IJX7, Item model number: M20-00001 – it is still on amazon web site.

I thought they were both from Microsoft, this black one must inherited the excellent features of the gray one. Unfortunately I was totally wrong. While the gray one may be the first notebook mouse in history and in so many years no other mouse could match its perfect features; this black mouse is just the opposite, it is unbelievably bad.

The image you see on amazon.com for this “Microsoft Compact Optical Mouse 500 – Black” is quite different from the one I just received.

On the old gray color mouse – on both sides of it, the red piece of plastic incurvate to make it easy to hold.

On the new black mouse I just received yesterday, the bottom is much narrower than the top, when I try to hold it from the left and right, the mouse slid up and jumped from the desk – you cannot hold it. The only way to somehow control it is to try to hold the narrow edge between the side and top, but this is not a real grasp at all. Mouse has to be moved all the time, if you cannot hold it, then you cannot move it easily. By making the bottom so narrow, Microsoft saved material, made more money, but also made this product a piece of garbage.

On the old gray mouse, the button’s top surface was made in the shape to prevent fingers from sliding to left or right. In the other direction direction, the buttons are flat to avoid slide forward or backward like on a ball, this ensures precise pressing and form a comfortable nest for your finger tips.

Okay, first off, most people that write bad reviews should be punched! The listing of the mouse and titles "Microsoft Compact Mouse". Why would you suspect something that says "compact" to be normal size and then complain about your stupidity!?

Review time: I ordered the mouse and like normal I read the reviews and try to see what is the basic problem and the 2 that I seen most were the size and length of the cord. the size as noted above is the consumers own fault for not being able to read. The second is the same! The cord is sort, mesuring about 2 feet, but being basicly a compact aspect, you would figure it to be smaller for the purpose of a smaller kid or preteen, or simple for a notebook/laptop and thats what it is for!

The shipping rate and speed was Amazing! It was delivered to my house in literally 2 1/2 days. I put the order in at about 2am and it was almost instantly approved and shipped around 9am that morning. I never seen that kinda speed from any company out of state! Even knowing it was Microsoft, I was happy about that!

The mouse is small (obviously) but I have had no problems with it at all. I plugged it in to my notebook, signed in and it worked just fine. I of course had to go to my mouse settings and change it to my likings, but other then that I do not see anything wrong with the product! The plastic is similar to normal mouses you would use, simple just in a compact size.

I give it a good rating and suggest this a buy to anyone looking for a COMPACT MOUSE for a notebook or laptop.
