The mouse connects via USB, though a PS/2 converter is also supplied. The package comes with IntelliPoint 4.1 software, which is straightforward to install. It works with Windows 98 and all later versions of Windows, and is also compatible with Mac OS 8.6, 9x, and 10.1. Unlike traditional mice, the Microsoft Optical Mouse Blue doesn't contain a ball, but instead uses a high-intensity LED and optical sensor to detect movement. This negates the need for regular cleaning, as with a mouse ball, and also provides greater precision.
During testing, the Microsoft Optical Mouse Blue performed well. It's comfortable to use, and precise. The buttons and wheel are responsive and accurate. Combine this with its durable construction, and you have a mouse that is well worth the investment. --Jason Weston, Amazon.co.uk

If I can find a few flaws, the first would have to be the clackyness of the mouse buttons. They feel nice, but they emit a louder "clack" noise than I'm used to when depressing the buttons. Also, I wish Microsoft would ditch the extra LED they put in the tail of the mouse. What purpose does it serve to have it glow red 24/7? Considering the second LED is superfluous, the least they could have done is make it the same color as the mouse shell, and use a cool blue one like Sony does on the front of PlayStation2.
Aside from those minor flaws, this is a solid performer. I recommend it.
I am in love optical mice! I think they are one of the pivotal advances in computer hardware technology in the last decade. No more stick and move, stick and move, stick and move. Fluid motion and precision are the optical mouse' watch words, its clarion call to the computer geek.
I love the feel and movement of my Microsoft Optical IntelliMouse w/ Intellieye, but wanted an updated version for the spouse; I chose the Microsoft Optical Mouse Blue.
Shaped somewhat differently than the Microsoft Ball IntelliMouse which became famous in the late 1990's, the Microsoft Optical Mouse Blue fits more neatly in the hand, be it right or left. Of course the same innovative track wheel for easy scrolling of web pages and web-enabled documents that made the IntelliMouse so desirable is maintained here.
All the benefits of an optical mouse are present in the Microsoft Optical Mouse Blue; for instance a mouse pad is no longer needed because the Microsoft Optical Mouse Blue will work on almost any flat surface, and will also work if lifted two or three inches above said flat surface.Read more ›
1. doesnt stick
2. scrolls quickly
3. the scroll has a bit of a cushion to it
4. its light
5. it moves smoothly
6. easy to clean
7. when airs or dust get into it, it still works great.
8. the red light is not to bright
9. forms to your hand nicely
10. has a nice look to it
The mouse feels cheaper than other Logitech and Microsoft mice I've owned, but is certainly sturdy enough to last. Also, the scroll wheel is too loose making it easy to scroll accidentally while trying to only press the wheel (center) button. Most people probably won't care about that feature (I happen to need the middle mouse button for my Unix applications at work).
I've been using the mouse as a travel mouse and it does it's job. This mouse is still better than any non-optical mouse since I can use it on any surface (I don't need to carry around a mouse pad).
If you are in the market for a new mouse, buy this you will not be disappointed and the software works great to!
