Very nice mouse; works very well on multiple surfaces.

The fact I can leave the tiny usb receiver plugged in while laptop is stored in my bag is great & finally a mouse with an on-off switch...duhhh!

Also, battery life is more or less 1 month with heavy use.

I was skeptic of MS mouse products after using few earlier models. I'm Logitech converted. I use a G9 for my desktop, that's simply an amazing mouse. However, this bluetrack tech has me blown away. It works virtually on any surfaces that you would use for a mouse "pad" the build quality is great, I love the two side buttons and the rubber grips. Its comfortable and stylish (be aware that the stock pix is misleading, the blue light does not show around the mouse)

This is a great little mouse thats very comfortable in the hand and accurate. I have medium sized hands and I dont feel cramped after using it for a long period of time. This would get 5 stars if it wasn't for a gimpy scroll wheel. I have no idea why they would make such a nice mouse and skimp on the scroll wheel. There is no tactile resistance at all and its just a free wheeling scroll. I have the larger version desktop bluetrack mouse, the 5000, and its the same.

In the past, I've had nothing but good experiences with Microsoft hardware and their warranty replacement service. Unfortunately, Microsoft's hardware quality and support doesn't seem to be what it used to be.

I bought this mouse for my wife and she absolutely loved the size, sensitivity and its ability to track on virtually any surface. Unfortunately, this was short-lived experience because the transceiver unit failed from overheating after a couple of weeks of normal use. The transceiver now becomes so hot that it is uncomfortable to touch when plugged into a usb port. Do a search for this model mouse and overheating you'll find it to be a common issue.

To make matters worse, I've found it impossible to get support for this mouse without calling Microsoft directly. When you go to their warranty support site and enter the product ID listed on the bottom of the mouse, you'll receive a message to the effect of "The PID you have entered is not valid for the United States" with no other options for support.

Not wanting to waste my time waiting on hold with Microsoft and against my better judgment, I wrote off the first mouse as a fluke and bought another one since my wife liked it so much. After one week, the transceiver failed with the exact same issue. Of course, the product ID listed on the bottom of the mouse gives the same error as the first one when entered into Microsoft's support site.

Two mice purchased from two completely different vendors failed in the exact same way with no easy way to get a replacement under warranty from Microsoft. I'm going to be avoiding purchasing Microsoft hardware for the foreseeable future thanks to the non-existent warranty support.

Color Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The mouse is great in nearly every way: it's portable, the receiver is tiny & doesn't stick out of the USB port (and it fits inside the mouse itself for transport), the battery life is outstanding, and you really can use the mouse on virtually any surface. But the smooth-scrolling wheel that I thought I'd love... I can't stand it.

The wheel doesn't have any "clicks" or "notches" as you scroll up & down, it's just a smooth, fluid motion. This scroll wheel, as in most (if not all) cases, is also a middle-click button. That's where the trouble starts. I use the middle-click regularly, for several different functions in several different applications, but the big problem comes into play when I'm browsing. I use Firefox and Tab Mix Plus, and I have the middle-click set up to open links in new tabs (among other things). With a smooth-scrolling wheel, you have press it straight down, without letting it scroll in either direction while you're pressing it, or else the page you're viewing will move up or down, ever so slightly, and you miss the link you're trying to middle-click. I know that sounds like a minor inconvenience, but if you middle-click regularly, I promise you it'll annoy you enough to give up on this mouse, even though it's outstanding in every other way.

One other thing: if you're running Windows 7, you'll need to download the newest version of IntelliPoint (just search for IntelliPoint 7). The version on the included CD will not work on Windows 7.

This mouse works extremely well for the first month. After about 5 weeks, the USB transmitter becomes very hot to touch and stops working ... I get an error in Windows saying "USB device not recognizable". Unfortunately, it happens right after the 30 day period ends for returns. This is the 3rd Microsoft Wireless 6000 mouse unit I purchased - all with the same result occurring on HP 6510 laptops. I have the same mouse working on a Velocity Micro tower unit and a Toshiba laptop with no problem after more than 3 months of operation. Seems to be isolated to HP laptop USB ports. When operating properly, its a 5 star unit - I love it.
----
Updated 4/8/2010 - Microsoft is shipping 2 replacement mice since the units are in warranty. I was told that the replacement mice will have the overheating problem fixed. If I find this to be true, I will change the rating to 5 stars.

I've gone through 3 of these and returned all three due to defective nano receivers. The third one I received directly from Microsoft, and it lasted 10 minutes before the receiver died, and then heated up to the point that it began to MELT inside the usb port. Microsoft no longer wants to send me anymore mice, opting to cut me a check as settlement instead! lol!

Anyway, there seems to be little to no quality control on these things. I'm an IT Systems Engineer and yes I tried each of the three dead receivers in multiple computers, laptop, desktop, XP, Vista, and Win 7. Dead, Dead, Dead, and still Dead. I could swap out replacements until the cows come home and yes I'd eventually get a good one, but for now, and for the foreseeable future, I'm just going to avoid Microsoft Mobile Mice altogether. Logitech here I come! :)
