Product Description

Product Description

Say good-bye to mouse pads and imprecise mice. The Microsoft Blue Optical Mouse uses an optical sensor to scan the desktop, offering precise movement time after time. Great design lets it work comfortably with either hand. Dresses up your desk with its blue and silver design with cool red optical glow. Works with your Macintosh or Microsoft Windows-based PC.

Amazon.com

The Microsoft Optical Mouse Blue is a well-designed, stylish, and efficient mouse that makes a worthy addition to any desktop. This mouse is shaped for ambidextrous use, fitting comfortably in either hand. It features two buttons and a central scroll wheel, and its silver and blue two-tone finish is complemented by the signature red glow characteristic of the Microsoft optical family.

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

This is my second go with the Microsoft Optical Blue line of mice. The first time out, I tried the wireless version, which ended up being extremely erratic. I liked the shape and look of the mouse, so I decided to try the tethered model. I'm glad I did. This mouse feels comfortable in my hand, and the accuracy is second to none. I'm a graphics designer, so my mice have to be as precise as possible. This mouse really does the job well.
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.

Stick and move, stick and move, stick and move; this action describes not the butterfly like movements of a great boxer, but the movement of the aging ball mouse across my spouses computer screen. I undertook all of the regular remedies for this type of bad behavior; I removed the ball and cleaned it with alcohol, I removed the dirt and dust from all surfaces, I prayed the to mouse gods for smooth and silky cursor operations, all to no avail. Finally, the spouse, who is usually the more frugal of the two of us, asked me to procure her a new optical mouse.
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.
The Essentials:
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.

I like this mouse. It replaced my factory Dell mouse that kept screwing up. It feels pretty nice, the buttons have a nice feel to them and the scroll wheel has a got a nice movement to it. It also has an attractive appearance. Most importantly, the mouse moves the pointer where I want it to go without any hassle. Probably not the absolute best mouse out there, but if you just want a good solid reliable mouse for a reasonable price and that's a little nicer looking than appliance white I'd get this one.

Although I like the feel of the buttons and especially the wheel, the mouse does not sit comfortably in my hand for longer periods. It is too narrow in the middle (as well as to high), forcing the thumb and ring finger to hold it in an unnatural and strained way. Instead, I recommend a wider and flatter mouse, such as Logitech's optical mouse (which is also cheaper).

After using it at work for a few hours, my hand began to hurt a bit. I have medium (men's) hands, but not sure if hand size matters. I think the high arch is the cause of the discomfort. Note that I also own the Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse Blue, and it does NOT have the same problem - I can actually recommend that one.
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).

This is the best computer mouse I have ever purchased. It has a nice feel and the scroll wheel is extremely easy to roll, with the perfect amount of resistance. I replaced my older Microsoft optical mouse, it still work well but wanted a change. It was well worth it, I am buying another one just like it for my other computer.
If you are in the market for a new mouse, buy this you will not be disappointed and the software works great to!
