I happened to have the Microsoft Intellipoint driver software installed and it seems to work OTB with the bluetooth mouse.
The scroll wheel is tight and accurate. The back button is kinda mushy, to the point where you don't know if you've clicked it or not. I set it to bring up Spaces or keystroke F8 (be sure to deactivate the keyboard shortcut first before you set the key then reactivate it so it can work). The motion is smooth. I'm using alkaline batteries and expect them to wear down rather quickly since they came with the mouse and who knows how long they've been in the box. But I plan on switching to rechargables later.
A loooooot better than a wireless Mighty Mouse or Magic Mouse. By far.
UPDATE 2014-01-06: Close to 2 years of owning this mouse and it's become my main mouse replacing even my Logitech MX Revolution and Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 (same class of mouse, just larger and RF). Batteries last quite a while. I have long lasting 1000mAh AAA batteries in it. When I use lower mAh batteries and I notice the short amount of time it takes to drain. Make sure you get high mAh ones. Side button is as mushy as ever, but then again I have it assigned to a very obvious action so it's very apparent if I've pushed it. Wheel rotation is as clicky as ever. A nice thing that I notice brands like Kensington and Logitech lose after a while. Otherwise, not much else to say other than it was a good investment.
UPDATE 2014-08-26: The rubber eventually came off the side panels. But once I removed the rest (with 99% iso-alcohol) it doesn't seem to effect the mouse any. Still works. I do see the disconnections every once in a while from Bluetooth, but that's only because it's trying to tell you that the batteries are running down. It'll lose connection because of that. Put fresh rechargeables in and it happens less.
9/10/12 I bought this mouse for a new ultrabook that only has two USB ports. It seemed silly to occupy one with a receiver for a regular wireless mouse so I picked this up.
This mouse is what I would consider compact or travel sized. It is small even for me (I have very small hands). Also, the back button is easy to hit if you have a wandering thumb like me.
The mouse does take a while to connect when my computer first starts up or when I am waking it up from sleep mode. This isn't really bothersome and I can't tell if it is a flaw with the mouse or a flaw with my bluetooth in my computer (I have bluetooth 4.0).
Either way, the number of bluetooth mice seems to be dwindling, so I'm glad I snapped this one up before you can't find them anymore!
Oh, batteries are included which is a total plus!
(1) small, compact
(2) connect well with my ASUS X202E throught bluetooth
(3) scroll wheel instead of the touch pad like Microsoft Sculpt Touch Mouse
(4) good price
(1) cheap made, the material used should be better
(2) the scroll wheel is not as smooth as the other wireless microsoft mouse like Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000.
For this price range, I think this is a great mouse to buy. If you're willing to spend more, I bet you can better ones from Logitech.
Hope my information is helpful to the potential buyers.
