This review is from: Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 - Poppy Red (Personal Computers)
I have used a wireless mouse for the past five years and I didn't expect to get excited with my most recent replacement.
I received this mouse today, popped in the included battery and plugged in the tiny USB remote and I'm off and running. The mouse is the standard size - maybe slightly smaller than a wired mouse - as long as a deck of cards and about 1.25" at the thickest part under your palm. The roller is grippy so that you don't need to press down to create enough resistance to roll it. The bottom must be treated with some type of surface Teflon that reduces friction because it glides effortlessly across the surface! I use a gel wrist pad with a mouse "mat" and it works great on that (even through the translucent gel which seems to mess up some IR devices).
It may be just because I had to go a week without a mouse but this little guy totally made my day! I am impressed!
**UPDATE** It's April 2013 and this mouse has moved jobs with me and it's still going strong. I like that it is red - it doesn't get mixed up with the other mice in bull-pen work environments. It also still looks great :)
